Since getting back from Mexico, we have successfully moved into our family's first apartment: Wymount Terrace! We love it here--the white cinder block walls leave you satisfied with an overwhelming air of security...much like a maximum-security prison would! Honestly though, we really are happy here. It is right across the street from BYU and full of nice neighbors! (Each of the 17 Wymount complexes is its own ward.) The apartment is about the size of Shaquille O'Neal's left shoe, so decorating didn't take long, but it felt like an eternity of unpacking things and washing new dishes, etc! We are finally all settled in now though!
This picture is taken from our front door. This is our kitchen, dining room, and living room. We went the first few weeks with a folding table and a single chair--thank you so much, Cindy, for the table and chair set!
From our bedroom doorway, you can see the other half of our living room. That couch weighs like 600 lbs, it is ridiculous! (It has a hide-away bed inside if anyone wants to come visit us though!)
The bathroom is a bit of a tight fit, but we found this over-the-toilet shelving unit that is perfect! We also, of course, have our lucky cow picture.
Our bedroom is proportionate to the rest of our apartment, but it fits our bed, so we are happy!
We love our bed set! We found it at Macy's the day before our registry discount expired. It retailed for $340, but was 50% off at the time, then 20% off store-wide, and then 20% off because we registered there--$108 final price! Most beautiful transaction ever!
Now that we have finished moving in, this is our new life. Caitlin and I spend hours each day applying to jobs--Caitlin for local positions for this next year, and me all across the U.S. for post-graduation. It is exciting to think that in less than a year we could be moving anywhere! We can only wait and see where!
