It is GORGEOUS out today. High of 68 degrees and sunny. The weather doesn’t get much better than this!
So I decided to stay at home and soak up the natural light (our new apartment has a ton of windows and has great light, which I love!). I really love working from the breakfast bar in our kitchen because there’s a ton of space and I’m close to the food and Keurig 🙂
See those oranges? I started to feel like I was coming down with something after the 20miler and have been eating tons of fruit. I know that studies have conclusively found that vitamin C doesn’t really help with colds, but I do feel better! So it was probably a fluke 😉
Sophie is also enjoying the sunlight 🙂
You can see above we still have a tool box lying around. Slowly but surely, though, our new apartment is coming together.
We’ve decided not to do any curtains or window treatments in the living room because the windows are so big and the view is so beautiful. We didn’t want to block any of it. Plus, it’s super hard to find a curtain rod long enough for the windows we have on the side of the room. I had bought some gray modern-looking curtains and then returned them when we decided to go for a minimalist look 🙂
And look what finally came together: my closet! Ok, I actually still have two wardrobe boxes full of winter clothes in storage and I have to figure out were the heck to put them, but I’m almost there! I swear every year I go through and give away and consign so many clothes but I always seem to have too many.
We live in a 2 bedroom place (well actually it’s more like 3 bedroom since our bedroom area is lofted). I have a whole room to myself for my desk, books, clothes, accessories, etc. If anyone has any ideas about how I could turn half of the room into a cute closet space please let me know! Something along the lines of this would be super cute (you can buy those extra racks for pretty cheap from Target and Ikea)
Ok I gotta get back to work because a big group of friends and I are going to see GIRL TALK tonight in Cville! And I’ve got to pack because the bf and I leave for Madison early tomorrow morning 🙂
Super excited. I’ll leave you with two of my favorite GT mash-ups
What are you excited about on this Wednesday?
What is one project you want to work on at your home?
