Today was the best Monday I’ve had in weeks. Maybe even in months. I think it was a great Monday for a multitude of reasons, but here are a few:
- I started my day getting up super early and taking Tahn for a long work
- My mom visited me all day yesterday and we had a great day: watch the Woman’s World Cup Final at a sports bar, had a relaxing afternoon eating yummy food and drinking wine at L Wine Lounge (thanks to Amy for the great recommendation!), took a cat nap, walked Tahn to the dog park, then finished the evening with ice tea outside
- My dad visited me today and brought me two pieces of furniture I have needed desperately in my apartment: a bookshelf and a butcher block on wheels. We walked Tahn down to a local bar and had happy hour
- I found this blog post and this blog post – two new mantras of my life
I hope you’re having a great Monday, too.

I am so excited. I have my very own apartment. I am the only person who lives there. And, I have the best roommate ever – Tahn. We moved in January 1, 2011. After 6 years and 13 roommates, I finally decided to get my own place. As much as I have LOVED some of my previous roommates, I felt it was time to have more privacy and no one to ask me to do dishes (their dishes or mine…)
Not only do I love the location of my new pad, (downtown with a four minute walk to work) but I also love the layout. One of the problems is that I don’t really have any furniture for my living room or until recently, my dining room. One of my coworkers gave me a great table and chairs, so I’ve spent the last 2 weeks sanding and painting the table and chairs – and they are finally done! Here’s a look at my new place. Next, I’m using my birthday money to buy a couch. More to come soon. ☺
Please note Tahn’s cameo with our new table and chairs. She loves being in pictures….
Oh! And these pictures were taken before I moved in. Pictures of the fully furnished place is coming…. well…. when it’s furnished.

The view back into my living room. MY living room. 🙂
Tahn with my new table and chairs. Isn't she adorable / weird in pictures?
