Moving Out and Up

Today we put a deposit on an apartment, into which we'll move in two weeks! Our original plan was to stay here with the MIL through the holidays. We looked at this building a few weeks ago and loved it, but the upfront move-in cost was pretty steep so we decided to wait a bit longer. It's a newer building and the units are leasing quickly, so we decided to move forward in order to get into the type of unit we wanted. And we're SO READY to be in our own place again.

A few highlights of our new place:

  • Washer and dryer! In our unit! No more communal, coin-operated laundry machines! I've dreamed of this my whole adult life.
  • A bathtub. Our previous apartment had a stall shower only. Same with our bathroom here at the MIL's house. I see many baths in my future.
  • High ceilings
  • Big windows
  • Fitness center
  • Outdoor patio with firepit and barbecue (this is the building's, not our own private space)
It is a serious upgrade to our previous apartment complex, which had zero amenities. 

I can't wait!


  1. An in-unit washer/dryer is the most wonderful luxury of all. I have one in mine and it is just the best thing. Also, bathtubs. Yes. I HAVE to have a bathtub. I love bubble baths too much not to have one! So excited for you!

  2. congrats!! I remember when we moved out of our shack and into our two-bedroom townhome, I seriously felt SO rich (even though we were still pretty broke). It took me a while to get used to it, but I absolutely love it

  3. Wahoo! I can't wait to see pictures once you move in! :)

  4. That's exciting! I never knew how much of a luxury it was to have in-unit washer & dryer until I saw my now husband's apartment. The coin operated business is so time consuming and having to save quarters was crazy.

    Congrats on the new place (and your own space)!

  5. So excited for you guys! I hope you'll give us a home tour sometime!

  6. Oh my gosh how exciting! And a washer dryer in the unit is a MUST! That can totally make or break a living situation IMO. And the fitness center and outdoor patio are amazing additions... you guys are going to be so happy here!
