We Moved!

I have a testimony of running. A couple of Saturdays ago, Kyle and I were finishing up a 10 mile run when I saw this info box for a basement apt for rent. Brett and I hadn't really decided if we wanted to try to get into a house or if we should rent for another year. We figured that the banks wouldn't give us a loan with him having his job for such a short period of time. So we went and looked at this apartment in Lindon that is really close to both of our parents homes. I fell in love at first sight. Here are some pictures of our new place. We just moved on Saturday and are all unpacked but we don't have the decorations up on the walls yet so just imagine them there.

This is my kitchen that I just love. I have never had so much counter space and cupboard space. I still haven't filled all the drawers and cupboards but I'm sure it won't take me too long. Sorry for the lack of table. We bought a set on craigslist and I'm refinishing them and it's taking me a little while. The chairs are part way done but I sill have to paint the seat part black because I didn't end up liking the stain I chose.

There is a big window seat with drawers where we have put Jules toys. She loves to open the drawers and find her books. This is me catching her in the act. She is such a good girl.

This is Brett's little office. It's small but at least there is a place to put his computer.

This is our bathroom. It is so big and spacious and nice. The washer and dryer are in there too but we are in the process of getting a set. In the mean time we are taking advantage of parents living close.

The jacuzzi bathtub that is huge

No pictures of our bedroom because I was washing sheets at the time. Here is our big closet though. I have a full size dresser in there that shows how deep it is. We took off the doors because they are obnoxious and use a curtain instead.

She followed me around and found some more of her books.
That's our place. It has lots of storage closets everywhere and we are loving it. There is so much light because it is a walk out apt. Jules loves it here and loves discovering new things to get into. I also started working a little at Wadley Farms ( helping out with receptions and what not. They just like someone to be there during the receptions so the people have someone to go to if they need help. I am loving it so far and it's not too much work but just enough for me to get out of the house and doing something. It will also give us a little extra money for a down payment on a house.
