Welcome to my home

Garth and I have a teeny tiny apartment, but we love it. We made it our home and we have made some incredible memories here.
This is where I do the Shred and Garth studies:
Ahh so many relaxing moments watching movies, talking all hours of the night, and lots of laughing here:
Our little kitchen where Garth makes me yummy food:
Our dining room where we have played countless games and eaten many meals:

I adore our dark purple walls in the bathroom:

Yes, those are bikes on MY side of the bed! I cannot wait to move (next month!!!) and get a nightstand and put the bikes in the closet!I love our dresser. Garth and I picked it out together and carried it up 3 flights of stairs together. I hope you enjoyed the tour. It has been a great time, but it's time to move on up to a bigger, better place that is closer to work. The funniest thing is our new place is pretty much across the road from my parents' subdivision. Garth and I are going today to sign our new place and we are so excited!!

I had that exact same t.v stand you have in your living room in my room for many years:p And the bikes totally cracked me up because Robert (before we got married and two weeks into our marrige) had his bike sitting right smack dab in the middle of the living room floor....I thought it was rather cute...Totally screamed the batchlor that he was...Congrats on the new place! That is always exciting:)

I've always said we are so much alike and this proves it again!!! I also have a red wall in my living room and a purple bathroom!! Love it!!!

Sharon said...

Moving is a exciting time, alot of work but at the end rewarding, because in our minds & eyes its all new a fresh, this is good for the soul. I love change like that, just like moving furniture around.
Thanks for stopping by, love your blog as well, looking forward to coming back... :)
Have a blessed weekend

Lacey said...

I love what you did with your space! The red and purple walls are fabulous. I have been longing for a red wall in our living room, but our lease requires you to repaint the walls white before you move out if you paint them a different color. I cracked up when I saw where you keep your bikes because ours are in such inconvenient places as well (2 behind the dining table and 1 in the foyer that hits the door when you walk in)!

April E. :) said...

WOW!! Can't wait to see your new place...how exciting!!!

Taryn said...

Moving! Exciting. We might be moving too.

Is your table always set so nicely? where do you put all your stuff that doesn't have a place like papers and stuff?

Shoshanah said...
