Hey guys! How was your weekend?
This weekend flew by quickly for me, but it was such a great one. Three reasons why it was great: we started packing, I did my long run despite the ton of snow here in Boston, annnnd we got to go see our new place & move some things!
These photos aren’t the greatest because I only had my phone with me, but here’s some snaps of my soon-to-be home.
This is the living room. Sorry this picture is so dark, I should’ve edited it, but I’m lazy…
I love these windows. Thank goodness for more windows.
I’m absolutely in love with all the molding in this place. It’s all original and pretty well taken care of.
You can also see the built-in hutch in the dining room in this pic. So neat!
Funky thing #1 about this place is that the washer & dryer are in the kitchen.
But the fact that this place even has a washer and dryer and that it’s not in the basement is amaaaazing. I’ll take it.
Another view of the rest of the kitchen…
Again, loving the windows here. This was taken at about 4 pm when it was overcast, but there was still light. I love it!
Here’s the bathroom, which is quite small, or at least way smaller than what we have now.
Kind of a downside to me, but the rest of the place is amazing so I’ll deal.
The single biggest
downside change about this place is the bedroom closet space. This is my bedroom closet…
I think my shoes alone would fill half of this, easily? Goodness. The hubby is actually going to take this closet & I’m taking a slightly bigger one in the second bedroom. Again, I can deal. But I will sorely miss my walk-in right now!
Here’s one of our cute radiators. Yes, I think the radiators are “cute.” 😉
The closet space being slim is really not that bad since we have a pretty spacious basement.
Not finished really and kind of creepy, but it’s space. And that’s something that’s hard to come by around here.
After we checked out the place for another look, we started moving some things in. We got the okay from our landlord that we can move some stuff in early into the basement and the kitchen so we did just that. The wood floors are being refinished this week though as they needed some work, but we should be able to continue moving in later in the week. We’re going to move all our furniture and big stuff over the weekend, though.
Hopefully a week from today I can say that we have everything over in the new place & are living there! I’m beyond excited.
After we moved some stuff, we came back home and had dinner with some friends. We just kind of threw this meal together, but it turned out pretty good.
We had chicken wings in an orange ginger glaze, roasted carrots, and a potato/cauliflower blend. Sounds weird (and looks kind of terrible) but it was really good. And all made by my husband, so it’s automatically a winner.
I’ll keep ya’ll updated on the moving front, but I’m planning on being pretty busy this week. We’ll see. Have a great week!
