5 Things Wednesday

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

We're finally moved into our new apartment! Things still need to be put away and organized but it is so nice to be here and be moved in. This new apartment is twice as big, newer, nicer, has a shorter commute for both of us, has a washer and dryer, and we're saving $150 a month. Awesome? YES!

Look at all that counter space! I'm in love!

Tim wanted to be in the picture so he held that post for a good 15 seconds while I took the panoramic picture haha

We still had a month left in our old lease but we had found someone to buy it. Turns out their application didn't pass so now we are scrambling to find someone to take over February so we don't have to pay double. Anyone want to move into an orange apartment?? No?

I got my official acceptance letter to the University of Utah and got my login information all entered. Woohoo! My credits will all be transfered in the next 6 weeks. 

I made chicken broccoli casserole for dinner last night and it was amazing. I always get so excited when a recipe turns out well the first time I try it. 
It is still incredibly and unbelievably cold here. So cold that I am looking forward to that 39 degree weather more than anything! That practically sounds like t-shirt weather after this horribly long cold spell!

  1. your new place looks amazing.
    i am so jealous.
    since we will most likely be moving out of state in april we haven't looked for a new place.
    and congrats on the acceptance
    and yay for new recipes!


  2. yay for new place and saving money!! That will definitely add up! And yay for acceptance letters!!!

  3. Holy cow-- okay, Caleb and I are in the midst of finding a perfect apartment for us so I am colored BRIGHT GREEN with envy! Holy moly-- that kitchen? To die for! Especially in an apartment! YAY!!!

    So excited for you guys, and yay about the acceptance letter girlfriend!

  4. Your life seems lovely and perfect right now!!

  5. Congrats on your acceptance! It took me a while to decide what I wanted to be when I 'grew up', but because I waited I found that was more focused and worked harder for every grade than most of the (younger) people around me (or a younger me would have). It has been a long journey, and HARD at times, but getting my degree in May will be worth every bit of struggle to get there. You will look back and be SO glad to have chased your dreams. Good luck!

  6. Yippee for a new apartment! And brrrrrr - that's cold! Happy Wednesday!
