12 days!

So I figured out today that I can now say "we're getting married next Saturday!!!" It's very exciting!! 12 days!!

This past weekend Jake and I were busy moving stuff to our new apartment. Jake is going to take up residence there in the next week or so (he's being "kicked out" of the Satterbergs, so they have more room for guests!), so we're trying to make the place a little bit more liveable.

First: Target. We bought tons of cleaning supplies so we could give the apartment a full scrub-down. It took two of us about an hour and a half to get the bathroom satisfactory! Honestly, I don't know how people who lived there previously could not clean it well before they moved out!!! It was really gross. But now it looks clean, and I even put a few of my gifts (hand towels and my soap dish!) out so that the bathroom had a bit more of "us" in it. :)

Ruthie, Jake's mom, bought us a table when she was out here last weekend for my shower. So Jake set that up and it looks great!! We also got the cable hooked up (of course it's one of the first things!) and the bed is semi-set up!
Just yesterday we finally got our couch into the living room. The Satterbergs graciously offered us their two old couches and a recliner, but our little apartment probably isn't up to holding all of that. So we just settled for the smaller couch. It fits so well!!!

It's very exciting watching our house form and become ours!!! I'll probably stop by there later today and get pictures of the house as it is now (with tables and couches and such), but here's something for now! For the kitchen picture: Lest you think that's all we have for a kitchen (although mind you, it is close!), also behind where I was standing is a fridge and freezer, and above those cabinets are more cabinet spaces! So hopefully it should work for now!

Our little enclosed patio! It's a nice private entrance. The sliding glass door is our front door.

The pictures are a little out of order. It should go: Patio, living room (room with the hardwood floors), bathroom, kitchen, and then bedroom. But, blogger being blogger, is stubborn. :)


  1. What a cute place! I'm so happy for you guys! Feels like yesterday I was counting down the days to our wedding, moving into a new place and being on "our" own all at the same time! Such an exciting time!
