This is where I stay...

So I'm finally updating and showing ya'll my lovely new apartment. Srsly, don't judge, but BBL's new giveaway kind of reminded me to do it. Anywho, here's the tour.

First you walk in the door and bam! You're right there at the kitchen. I love my kitchen. No joke, you can walk the entire thing in two steps...maybe three or four if you have short legs. But I love it. I haven't quite finished decorating it, but this is its current state.

I love my's got pictures of the majority of my friends (i.e. Smoochie, Lauren, Jessica, Chelsea, and my Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw).

The whole theme of my kitchen was supposed to be 50's themed, hence the cherry accesories and why all my dishes are red. Now I just need a checkerboard tile floor and I'd be almost there.

From my kitchen you could either go into the living area or turn into the closet/bathroom area.

So let's say we turned right...this is what you get to see.

This is Charlie the elephant. Lauren gave him to me because of my love of an identical elephant statue in my hometown.

And here's the bathroom. The shower was so gross when I moved in. Not dirty gross, but it had no water pressure and I was sad. It turns out that the knob was broken and maintenance fixed it and needless to say, my shower rocks!

If you go straight, well here we go.

Thanks to Uncle Ray and Aunt Kim for gifting me the entertainment center, TV, and couch. I plan on getting an awesome slip cover for the couch...if they ever go on sale because those things are expensive.

Look what my Smoochie made for me :) Aren't they amazing?

Then there's my bed! I got to upgrade to a queen size and it's lovely. I love my bed spread and I love my framed art.

This is a 1930s postcard of my favorite place ever...the Olympic Penninsula! It's got Forks, La Push, Lake Crescent (no sign of Cressie though) and Seattle.

I also got these lovely cards that I framed from the Space Needle.

Then there's the view from the rooftop pool :)

So now that ya'll have seen it, who wants to visit???
