Welcome to our home! I finally found my camera and took some pictures of our new apartment. I actually had some older pictures on my camera, so I’ll put those up here, too.
Old room 🙁
So many boxes –
Umm wtf. Literally, a man driving down the road on a tractor with a barrel of hay. Welcome to Iowa.
Delicious Mexican restaurant in town! It’s the first place Kev and I ate in Des Moines
Home Sweet Home!!
Welcome home! Our kitchen (before the movers, aka my family, came)
The movers are here! My family, Kev and I started unpacking ASAP –
The IKEA furniture was a bitch. There, I said it. I love IKEA, but if it weren’t for Kev and Brendan, it would not be up right now.
Did I also mention the DYI headboard was a bitch? No, it wasn’t that bad. But it did take my whole family to put it together.
Mom and I had to hold all the pieces in place while the nail glue dried. Fun.
Bren thought it was fun, too.
My family helped us so much! We seriously wouldn’t have a kitchen right now if it weren’t for my mom.
Now for the finished product! Welcome home –
My beach, yes, beach bag. And noodle. The pool is in walking distance and it’s roughly a billion degrees outside.
View from the kitchen, with pretty flowers Kevin surprised me with today!! 🙂 Getting good use out of my flower vase already.
View of the kitchen from the living/dining room.
Kitchen table that is currently holding our 1500-piece puzzle we’re working on. Old people syndrome.
Our backyard/patio #1
Backyard/Patio #2 (currently doing laundry)
My favorite room in our house. Beach bathroom!
Bedroom (headboard, again) –
And there’s your grand tour! It was so fun getting our apartment ready. Packing and unpacking sucked a whole lot, but it was worth it. Now I need to decorate!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I am off to watch The Bachelorette and sip margaritas.
