Move in!!

I love moving in to a new place, and getting everything in order..
but I really hate the process of carrying furniture in.
Add the heat of August, and it's really not fun.
So pardon how rough I look.. but I have to post a few pictures of the move in yesterday!

Gosh, moving a mattress is so awkward! 

We got to the apartment around 9:30 so we could beat the heat.. and luckily we managed to get all of the big stuff unloaded while it was still relatively cool outside.

I didn't take a TON of pictures, because I want to wait and post them when I get everything the way I want it. However, I did take some of the dresser I got.

I got a beat up dresser at an antique store for a really great price. I loved the mirror on it, but it needed something to make it look more fun. So we went to Hobby Lobby and got a bunch of mismatched, fun knobs... and voila!


it really spruced it up into a fun piece of furniture!


Once I get more done I'll take better pictures! We were just worn out yesterday! and in the meantime, I'm dealing with cable and internet installation appointments... I'm about to pull my hair out! 

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday! TGIF!!!!
