A New Year, A New Look

We moved this past October and I promised a LONG time ago that I would post about our new place.  And I lied to you.  I never posted a single post about my new apartment.  But guess what, today you are lucky because I will blog about my new apartment with pictures too!  Let's think of it as new apartment, new year, and new beginnings.

Let's begin the tour!
Here is the view of our living room when you walk into our apartment from our door.

The walls were painted blue before we moved in and since I love blue, I told the previous tenant that it was perfect.  She was happy because she didn't want to have to paint it over again.

The hubby has A LOT of movies!  As you can see from the two spinners on either side of the TV and there is also more movies stashed in boxes in our apartment and probably some at his mom's house too.  Let's just say that when we get a house, we are going to have lots of shelving to hold all the movies AND video games.  We have a PS3 and a Wii!  The TV is probably my hubby's favorite thing in the whole wide world.  He spent weeks researching on the perfect TV for us. lol.

I just had to share a picture of this!  This is one of my favorite wedding gifts we got from his co-workers.  The heart in the middle swivels so there's a picture on both sides and our names are engraved on it.  I <3 it!

This is one of the favors that my hubby's mom had for our wedding.  We were able to keep one for ourselves.  It has our name's and wedding date engraved on it.

This is the hallway that goes through the kitchen area, bathroom and bedroom.

This is our kitchen area. Our table was given to use from a family friend.  It's a big table and I love it!  It's an old table so it's actually made of good wood and on the other side is the bench used for seating.

We received this photo frame from the best man on our first Christmas that we celebrated as a couple and I love it!  I included all pictures from our wedding.

This is our kitchen.  It's a bit small but I have LOTS of cabinet space and at first I was afraid it was going to be too small, but ends up it works out perfectly for me!

As you can see, my fridge has lots of pictures up on it.  I want to get a nice magnet collage that can hold all the pictures.  Anyone know where I can find something like that???

This is our bedroom.  The Superman bear on our bed is the very first bear that the hubby ever game me.  He's six years old!  The other bear was a Valentine's Day gift and he's so soft and cuddly.

One of my church members was moving and they offered us this beautiful dresser!  It's in pretty good condition and has lots of space.

This apartment was completely redone about 6 years before so everything is pretty new.  Our bathroom has beautiful tile from floor to ceiling!

So there you have it.  A sneak peek into our apartment.  Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and to new beginnings!

I think our husbands have much in common with taking over the bed as soon as we get up in the a.m. and taking months to research the perfect tv. haha

I had that exact same shower curtain in my bathroom in college. Isn't it great? I love how the picture you took reflects the pattern in the mirror.

You guys have a great place and it all looks so cozy.
