Hello from Austin, TX!
As I recently shared, I moved from Wichita, KS to Austin, TX. I’ve been an Austinite for 2 weeks now!!
I’ve already been to 8 different bars/restaurants. That’s not too shabby, eh?!
Most of my last 2 weeks has been spent unpacking, organizing, and decorating. I’m 100% unpacked and settled in and wanted to share a few pictures of my new apartment. If you already follow me on Instagram, these may be repeats for you.
Loving the wood floors & stainless steel appliances!! It’s a definite upgrade from my last place.
I really went with the “fresh start” mentality with this move to Austin. I bought a new dining room table/chairs, new entertainment center, new couch/chair/chair + ottoman/end tables/lamps/coffee table. 🙂 I hadn’t gotten new furniture in 10 years, so it was time!
My end tables hadn’t arrived yet when I took this picture. Hence the lamp on the floor.
I LOVE this ottoman! I’m blogging from it right now.
My office nook is my favorite part of my apartment. I’ve never had built in book shelves before. The books displayed are the books I HAVEN’T read. All the ones I’ve read are stored in my closet.
I found the 2 pictures on the wall of salsa dancers in my Mom’s closet right before I moved. She’s a Spanish teacher, but hasn’t displayed the pictures in years. They just make me smile when I look at them!
And just for fun, a look into my newly stocked fridge. It’s daunting…and expensive…when you move and have to buy new condiments and everything!
Some cute wall art that I got from some antique stores in Wimberley & Gruene, TX.
And finally the couch & tables arrived on Tues! Now I’m on a quest to find something to put on the coffee table. Candles?? Or is that too played out?? Anyone have any ideas for me?
