Fact #358: I live in Houston now

And I have pictures to prove it! :)

 My bathroom. There's so much cabinet/shelf space it's actually kind of intimidating. 

Also my bathroom. Some of you might be wondering why I have an alarm clock in my bathroom. Some of you might be impressed that I hauled it all the way across the country even though it doesn't technically belong to me. Some of you might be afraid you're going to get it for Christmas next year.

My bedroom. It's not actually that dark, but the window made the contrast too high. I have some awesome new plants, a newly assembled Ikea dresser, and a super swank view of the parking lot.

 My fish!!!! He doesn't have a name yet. Sadly, Baby Force is already taken.

 The hallway. I don't know why I took a picture of it, but there it is.

Our living room. The coffee table is also a chalkboard. The couches were a last minute purchase from Goodwill -- I rented a truck to pick up a couch from a guy on craigslist, but he was a total jerk and bailed at the last minute. So I swerved the truck into a Goodwill parking lot, ran in, and ran out with these. I was renting the truck by the hour!

 Our dining room/nook/area. These are an Ikea table and chairs I got from craigslist. I didn't have a dining room in my last apartment, and I didn't realize how much I missed having a table to sit at. As you can see, it's already getting put to great use. 

So that's a little tour of my new place! It's super huge, which is nice. And we're on the top floor, so we don't have to listen to annoying loud neighbors above us... instead, we get to be those people!

Just kidding. I'm very quiet and nice.

Til tomorrow!

Yeah! Your place looks so nice! Good job finding all the stuff. It is really big, and top floor is good. And a new fish - almost like having a puppy?!
