fill in the blank friday and an apartment tour!

Double whammy of a post today! I figured what better way to end the week than with Fill in the Blank Friday and a tour of my apartment? No better way, would be the correct answer.

1.   You should always take time to     wash your makeup off before you go to sleep. Trust me. Your skin will thank you.  .

2.    Coffee and chocolate and chai tea lattes      make(s) the world a happier place to be.

3.  I can hardly wait for   our trip to DC in two weeks   .

4.    Saturday    is my favorite day of the week.

5.  Something totally dumb and ridiculous that I love is    our collection of stuffed bears  .

6.  If I could, I would   build an elevator in my apartment building. Hot damn, four flights of stairs is a lot    .

7.  I rather like    going for a manicure and pedicure, even if my manicure chips within 30 seconds of me leaving the salon. I just love feeling pampered. Speaking of, homegirl needs one stat. Anyone wanna go with me?   .

And now...for the tour!
office-ish space.
couch! which fit perfectly! thank goodness.
our dining area.
a snippet of our bookshelf, which is to the right of the tv.
the only thing worth photographing in our bathroom...
the lovely galley kitchen.
where i would like to spend most of my time...
our new duvet reads "love is all you need." :)
my vanity. i have a bucket under my bedside table with
my hair dryer, curling iron, makeup, etc...
oh herro!

my bulletin board (and 1/2 marathon medal!)
the awesome print i won from fifi du vie (c/o april, maybe)
the rest of it.
So there you have it! Our lovely new place. It feels a lot more like home than our last place did. Everything is much more open and cozy. Even though my laundry is five flights of stairs away.

I'll leave you with a few random shots from our party last Saturday. It definitely was a blast.
What are you all up to this weekend?

Also: today is my sweet, sweet momma's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA! You da best. I've got treats comin' home tomorrow. Ruvya.

  16. Thanks for sharing your GREAT new place! That is the most adorable duvet I have ever seen. I also love the sign about it being a great day to look at while you're getting ready in the morning. Where is your gorgey pink floral top/dress in your party pics from? Adore it.
