It’s been quite the weekend/past few weeks and I’ve had a lot going on. Between a peak time at work, visiting my sisters, and them visiting me, I’ve kept myself pretty busy. Fortunately, their recent visit forced me to kick my apartment-settling into high gear, and I finally have gotten my place [mostly] visitor-friendly. I am absolutely in love with my new apartment. It is just so spacious and I don’t feel cramped at all– which is a nice relief after living in a studio for five months. I’m excited for this new chapter and am hoping for the best.
I snapped a few pictures of my place as it’s coming together. I think it’s pretty darn cute.
It’s not perfect, and there are still a few things I’m working on putting together, but it’s getting there!
As I already mentioned, Mal and Steph visited me this weekend. I’ve been waiting for them to visit pretty much since I moved out here, so as you can imagine, I was pretty amped. I made them dinner (you read that right, I made them dinner!), we did a great deal of shopping, we went to Monty’s Blueplate Diner, watched a movie and a whole lot of FRIENDS. Besides the rain putting a damper on our hopes of going to The Terrace, all was well and I think we all had a pretty good time. I was excited to get to show them my new apartment and my favorite parts of Madison.
Here are a couple pictures from the past two weekends.
In somewhat related news, my sister Stephanie has a new cooking blog, Table for One, that is angled toward those who often cook for just themselves. It’s quite an excellent read, especially for someone like me, who isn’t great at cooking. Check it out here!
