1st world problems

I love my apartment. LOVE! So many married students live in the biggest dumps and I don't know how they do it (oh wait, the money they save is there motivation). There are just some things in life that I don't like to spend a lot of money on, and others that are investments to me. OK an apartment isn't exactly an investment. In fact it's the exact opposite when you are throwing away money every month on rent. BUT the investment is in the memories and the feelings that come with the apartment. I walk in to some of the student housing and I feel like I need to take a shower after I leave, or that someone's grandma died in this chair they have, or that if you had one more guest in this place we'd have to start standing on each other's shoulders. I had no intention of living somewhere where I had to keep a broom handy to bang on the ceiling so that our fat, greasy landlord Dale would get the hint to turn down his music. Paying an extra hundred dollars or so for our place is worth it because I LOVE being home. I can't wait to get there. And every time people come over they sing it's praises. I have wanted to give a little tour of my house for some time, BUT I just don't want to until it's mostly completed.

And I have another confession (Spencer stop reading this now), I am currently having apartment anxiety. I like the direction my bedroom is taking, but I don't think I like where my living room and vanity is headed. I just wish I had an interior designer to help me. I have the vision, but I'm just not sure about the execution. Maybe I just don't trust myself enough. I'm just really starting to doubt my choice of red in our living room. It's such a dominant color and usually used in very modern rooms such as these:


This is not the look I was going for. If we had a modern black sofa, then maybe. But we have a brown leather sectional. Plus I want it to have the same feel as our room. I probably just need to go to Ikea and thrift stores and walk around for an hour to calm my anxiety and regroup. 

On another note... I really want a new iPhone case. Don't hate me Spencer! Society6 has the cutest ones! I don't know which one to choose!

    2. Thanks, Ashely! So happy you found me via Wes's blog. You and your husband seem so cute together.

      For the record, I'm in the same situation. We built our house last spring, and I've been dying to have my family and friends see. But we are still living like squatters. Our walls are completely bare. We have a dining table, but no chairs. Decorating your home is a never ending process!

      I hope you post photos of your home soon. ;)
