Our Humble Abode


It’s weird feeling like I’m all grown up especially since Jason and I have our own apartment. No more rushing home in Jason’s car to make it back for curfew – now we can spend more time together sleeping and waking up in the same place. Coming back to Rexburg, we had so much fun spending two full days of unpacking and exchanging gift cards at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target for furniture and a few needed items for our home. It’s also weird that Rexburg isn’t just a place where I go to school and Jason and I first met – it’s our home. Our apartment is small and comfortable with a view overlooking train tracks where a cargo train will greet us twice a day. As far as how the actual apartment looks – I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Before:
I literally made Jason wait to open the door until I got my camera out. 
Kitchen (Yes, the table is midway between the living room and kitchen)
Living Room
Hallway to the bedroom 
Bathroom
Bedroom
After:
Living Room
Kitchen
Bedroom (Finally found a bedspread we LOVE)
Bookshelf in bedroom assembled by Jason himself
Bathroom (weird angle, but I wanted to show the lovely curtain and red accents)
I’ve also been cooking for myself and Jason. It has been fun, but it’s time consuming so I can only make a “nice meal” once or twice a week. The good news is there are always leftovers. The bad news is there are always leftovers. Anyway, Jason says I’m “a great cook” and that’s all that matters right?
Lasagna (thanks to the recipe on the back of the noodle box and mom's tips)

Shake n' Bake and Rice o' Roni (Love our plates!)

Since I haven't actually met the author, I feel a tad creepy posting on your living situation. However, I know your hubby from the English Lit Pilgrimage from years ago, and he posted a link to this. As I'm currently arranging my own living situation, I was interested.

Anyway! Your home looks lovely. You have a great taste in style. Well done, and I hope you guys are very happy there :)

I am such a trespasser - I love to see people's houses. Your apartment looks very cozy. And, your plates are to die for!
