A Place to Call My Own

Well I did it!!!

I'm officially moved out (mostly) and living in my own big girl apartment.795 square feet and its all mine--at least for 14 months.

I only need about 102,897,456 more things to get it the way I want it. Has anyone else had this problem? Maybe it's my "type A" tendencies, but I want it to look HGTV worthy right now without spending more than like $500.

Do I hear a challenge?

My list (and we all know how much I love lists) includes, but is not limited to:

pots and pans






a microwave


dining table and chairs

etc. etc. it grows by the minute

So when I said I found the perfect place, perfect was relative. It does need some work--don't get me wrong, but you should have seen some of the other places I toured before deciding on my perfectly imperfect space. I'm sure I'll be posting more on my DIY projects, as well as, any of the unique experiences I encounter as I adjust to apartment living.  You'll just have to check in from time to time--Because I Said So :)


  1. And I will be there to approve and deny your choices!!!!! Lol, but really. ๐Ÿ’—

  2. Congrats! So exciting! Have you been to the No Fleas Market on Magazine? It's a thrift store and usually has some household things for cheap.

  3. No I haven't..Thanks for the tip!! I'll for sure have to check it out.

  4. Purchase things over time so you can invest in quality pieces that you L-O-V-E and will last longer too:) Have fun in your new space!
