If you have been thinking to yourself “man, I voted on Kendra’s poll for her to do _______ diy project and never found out which one won!” I have a great explanation for my delay in response. I’M MOVING OUT! I’ve been a little distracted in the hunt for a condo, but we found the golden nugget of all condos in downtown Phoenix.
I’ve been so so blessed in many ways during this chapter of my life. First, my friend Megan’s dad is buying the condo for us and we are renting from him. This opened up so many more properties for us and might I add, we are getting a steal. Thanks, T-dawg (a.k.a. Mr. Specker, a.k.a. Megan’s dad, a.k.a. Tony.) We are still waiting for all the paper work to go through, but unless anything weird happens, the condo is ours! YAY! Second, I am going to have the most awesome roommates ever. I will be living with my friends Megan and Cheyna (click their names to find out more about them via their fantastic blogs.) I couldn’t be more excited to live with these two girls who I know will grow to be a bigger part of my life that I can even fathom. Third, the apartment is SO AWESOME! It is three stories (with a garage on the bottom,) three bedroom, two bath, fireplace, granite counter tops, balcony, brand new stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer, a pool that is heated year round, a gym, and it’s close to the light rail I take to school! I seriously couldn’t ask for anything better. Fourth, we have been blessed with so much furniture and accessories. Praise God!! (Please excuse my excessive use of exclamation points, but really.. can you blame me? This is so exciting!!) Our move-in date is July 27 so we have a ways to go, but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I will have time to get most of my belongings packed before I go on vacation and will return home from just in time to pack it all up and move. Plus, Cheyna wanted to move in the beginning of August right before school. Perfect, right?
I am one lucky girl.
So please bear with me as I put the DIY projects on hold. I will be a busy girl preparing and packing this next month, but the winning DIY project WILL be done for my new house, just stay tuned. And because I know it’s killing you, the project that won is….. drum roll please…. the hanging garden! (Sorry Grandma, I know you don’t like this one, but trust me, it will be cool. And I might throw in the runner-up too: brooch knobs for my dressers.)
Please keep my lovely roommates and I in your thoughts and prayers as we prepare for this big step into adulthood. We could not be more thrilled to start the adventure.
P.S. I bought this delightful shower curtain today from Cost Plus World Market. Decorating is going to be a blast!
