A house is not a home...

Turns out, moving is a lot of work! Not just the getting your stuff from one place to the other but the inevitable unpacking, power drill using, trips to Home Depot and Bad, Bath and Beyond, etc. It's exhausting! But it's also a lot of fun. Luckily for me, this lady (read: my mom) came and was able to keep me focused and take my grumpiness in stride. We even took a break from our constant working to have a lovely dinner on Saturday night.

Other than that we stayed busy as bees. I'm on street level so finding window coverings was at the top of the list. We actually hung venetian blinds with a drill and everything. Don't ask me how we did it because I blacked out. I have to say though, I'm pretty proud of these beauties. (and note the snippet of minty green goodness. do you love it?)

The closet situation was dicey when I moved in, so we installed a new rod and a shelf. I know it doesn't look all that impressive but it was pretty touch and go there as we tried to install this bad boy. We survived somehow, and now look how pretty and organized my closet is.

Although it felt like we worked and worked and worked... there's still quite a lot to do (see below pic). But, I can officially say this now: I love my new place!
