Living the { Apartment } Life

Well, we did it.

We moved into our place, and we're living in a perfectly sized green walled apartment in downtown K.C.

(Pause while I go heat up some mac and cheese in OUR microwave--I'm healthy didn't you know?)

Anyways, here are some snaps of our move in pizza fest, and just what has been going on here since we moved in two weeks ago.

The rooms and I were a tad exhausted when our boys came over to take us out...I think we have an excuse for looking so not fab.

Our living room, with the fantastic wall deco (a la pinterest) done by my other roomie (legit one, we share a bunk!) Kimberly 

The perfect sized kitchen for three young ladies (see my awesome olive oil spout?!?! it's probs my fave)

Wait, no this is my favorite thing I brought for decoration. Found it at salvation army for two buckaroos, and it is what makes this place our place to me because every solid home I've ever been in has this saying in their eating area

Sigh (:

Hilarious night with Matt, Julia, and James playing our signature game--golf--and trying some world market (nasssstaaay) chocolate soda. 

Matt chugged all four glasses.

Ew to the max.

But oh my goodness, we were hurting from laughing so hard.

And this next three photos are of the quaint, peaceful, and beautiful Catholic church that is a three minute walk from our apartment.

You read that right--three minutes of strolling down our street, and we're at God's house.

Ba. Zing.

Another roomie shot ;)

There have been some little difficulties here and there with cable, maintenance, and just learning to live with two young women who I have so much to learn about. 

But I am loving this new home; its smell of vanilla candles that are almost always burning, the neighborhood's quiet and amazing location to small local stores, coffee shops, and school (don't even get me started on half priced books...), and the people who I get to share this journey with. My family, James, friends, and of course, my roommates, have embraced this new home with excitement and trust that it is the beginning of a fantastic chapter of my life. 

I am so blessed to have this place; this home.
God, You are so good and Your works have not ceased to amaze me.

This weekend I plan on writing about our journey to D.C. for the March for Life; it was on a different level than any of my previous years, and it was a great testament to the power of God's love in action
....but more on that later ;)
