5 for Friday

4:00 AM

All moved In

Finally!  Move in day is done and over with!  Who knew it would be so stressful, and so demanding on your body.  I was sore for about 2 days after and thanks to the time change I felt so extremely fatigued that I left work early on Monday thinking I was catching a cold.  Note to self, make sure to request off the day after move in weekend next time!  Now, if you look above that is the dining room set I would like to get from Ikea.  I’ve been purchasing things for the apartment in small increments so I don’t rack up my bills before I even get a chance to enjoy and bask in my wonderful home.  It’s nice being out of my house, and the best part is I’m not too far from home so if I ever need anything it’s not that far.  Lilly has been slowly adjusting to the apartment.  Tuesday was the first day I left her all alone without being in her crate while I was at work.  Thankfully she didn’t ruin ANYTHING!  I’m so glad that she did so well. 

Lilly’s Birthday Monday

Speaking of Lilly.  Her 6th birthday is Monday.  Last year I did a little birthday post because she crossed the 5 year milestone so this year I’ll probably get her a little something and leave it at that.  It’s been so crazy with the move that I didn’t even realize her birthday was Monday.  Oh for those of you wondering Lilly is my puggle haha.

New Things

So I ordered quite a few things and received some this week.  I got my Boosted Bows bow for my car last weekend, just in time for move in.  I also ordered some shoes from Shopbop because I was in desperate need of some flats, AND I ordered some things from Target to make my kitchen a little homier.  I’ve  decided that my kitchen will be rooster themed.  Well, maybe mostly country themed but I figured a rooster was a great way to start.  Like I said before, that all in good time the apartment will come together.  It will finally be home for me once I furnish it and everything.  So if any of you have any awesome DIY’s (I’m thinking of making a pallet couch and I have a patio so I need lots of planter ideas) for anything home related please let me know!

Internet and TV

I’m FINALLY getting internet and TV today!  I have been disconnected somewhat, minus my phone but thanks to no internet my stupid data is already at 50% (after a week!) because of blogging duties.  I’ve been blogging from my phone or from work.  I wish Verizon didn’t get rid of unlimited data, y’all should bring that back thank you very much!

Adore me Giveaway

If you saw my Instagram post from last weekend I uploaded a layout to enter into an @AdoreMe lingerie Giveaway!  All you have to do is make an outfit with a bra/lingerie and make it your own.  I decided to go with casual and comfortable because that was taken the morning of move in day so I wanted to be comfy.  Tag @AdoreMe and use hashtag #everydaylingerie along with sharing the post on your blog!
