Got an apartment!

i just got a place, guys! sort of overwhelming but awesome. i may be here less often in days to follow.
it's so cute.... it's in an excellent location (voted one of the best places to live!) and is fairly spacious and i love it.
i was gonna get a house here but decided to go for an apartment instead. this place just appealed to me so much.

That's great Luvs!! I happy for you. An apartment is sometimes better than a house anyway. No lawn work :o)
And if something goes wrong, they have to fix it.

thanks so much for the kind words, guys.
geebs and htc, the kitchen is really little. the kitchen was my main criteria, until i saw this place. i have so much cute stuff to make the kitchen adorable, i decided the lack of space didn't much matter.
james, i don't think i'll be storing my magic bullet on the counter. maybe, but it doesn't match my decor.
jkath, my Mom and i discussed painting, and i haven't decided whether to or not yet. i have to ask if i am allowed to or not. i would like to paint some subtle pink accents onto the walls. once it's nice and beautiful, i'll send out the pics. i am so in need of film. i used like 6 rolls in recent days and i used all my cell phone pics up.

Congrats, luvs. It is always nice to have a place of your own. The nice thing about an apartment is no lawn maintenance. Have fun decorating and arranging things as you want.

Congratulations luvs.

I know what a fun time you must be having. But the best is yet to come. After you've arranged everything just how you want it, about a month later you'll decide on even better places for 'stuff'. It always happens, as you grow used to the 'lie of the land' so to speak.
