We just need a couch

Filed under: apartments — by heatherdc @ 7:39 am

The past four days have been spent moving/settling into the new apartment. It’s weird to be out of central Pennsylvania and into a new state, a new room, a new place to navigate. I’ve already got the drive to Target memorized, so obviously things will be okay. I also have a grocery store across the street from me. Again. Now I know I’ll survive.

For the first time I have my own furniture (thanks to Ikea, and the help of a fellow carpenter), and it matches and I could coordinate things and my room actually feels like mine. And it’s a very cute room. Just sayin’. Another first is having something that actually organizes and displays my shoes to me. For whatever reason, they’ve never had their own display, which they certainly deserve. So I finally purchased a hanging shoe rack, that is adorning the back of my door. And let me tell you, I’ve never seen anything so beautiful. I can look at all of them, choose carefully which ones to put on, and marvel in their beauty……all 25+ plairs of them (I had never counted before! Weird, right? Yup.)….allll at the same time. Yessssss.

So here we are, new roomie and me, all set up. Luckily she brought in some necessities (i.e. a kitchen table, TV and stand, an actual knife set, dishes), and so did I (kitchen randoms, shower curtain, DVD player). We do need one thing thing though…uh, a couch. We’re workin on that.



  1. Sounds fun! I’m looking for a new place to live (getting sick of the roommate situation) and looking forward to decorating how I want and really making a place that is just for me. Woohoo! What state are you in now?

  3. Isn’t that the best feeling? I always hated where I was living until I could get it decorated.

  4. It is definitely a good feeling. 🙂 Even if we do have to watch TV from the floor.

  5. The first thing we bought when we got to DC was a couch. We may not have had anything else but we had a couch to sit on 🙂 Good luck getting settled.
