We Made It

Okay everyone!  So Nathan and I are fully moved into our first apartment together and we could not be more happy! I’ll show you some pics of the place and just we made it.  Through everything that life threw at us, we made it.  Nathan turned to me the other night and told me he was happy.  Happy.  Those words I had not heard him say in a very very long time.  Actually haven’t heard him say he was genuinely happy since we dated back in high-school.  But he said this with a smile on his face and he just held me closer to him and I couldn’t be more enthralled!  He’s been so great and last night he called me wife ❤ This man is amazing and I am way too blessed.  God has given me someone who is going to love me for who I am and enjoy the rest of my life with!  But before I get all mushy gooshy like I tend too, let me show you the pics!

10003930_1552622418348579_1063473872418907392_n So some one once told me to enjoy the neatness while you don’t have kids so until I do, I dedicated two cabinets to just looking nice lol.  We do use these dishes but they are washed immediately and put back 😀

10995688_1552543551689799_1204525156898281758_n In our living room is a bookshelf that is also our tv stand (you’ll see this in a later picture) and the center focus is this Bible.  Of all the books we have, the Bible is the most important one and I think it helps represent Nathan and I’s faith.  It was my Great Grandmas Bible given to my Grandfather at her death and is just absolutely beautiful.

11024713_1552599331684221_8601599613614559533_n This is a cabinet just for the beautiful decor cups! The clear ones are the ones Nathans mom got us and the blue and clear ones are the ones my mom gave us 😀

11025814_1551765301767624_8559252498336532283_n These pics show the first day we were there! The soap in the top left corner is some soap that I got from the local soap shop! Living Simply Soap is the best and it’s all made at the shop!! then all of Nathan’s stuff packed and our bathroom.  The lights in the kitchen are rounded so I thought that was cool looking; the salt and pepper shakers; and then finally the back half of our living room facing the stairs 😀

11030857_1552623201681834_1518426435656248502_n This is the rug that I wanted so dearly for our kitchen and man does it make the kitchen look good!

11034176_1552818238328997_3759592263869424503_n Here’s part of the living room including the little dinning area which i think just flows so well!  The Bible right in the center of the book case just, fits so perfectly!

11036266_1551953515082136_7106840191425567562_n Laundry area!  We were so blessed to have so much help furnishing our apartment to really make it feel like home!

11041741_1552599761684178_3965773963886418521_n Here’s the kitchen area.  I wanted to do colorful but not gaudy so I took Nathan’s sister, Sarah, and my dad to make sure I didn’t get too carried away!  (I tend to lol)

11042960_1552819234995564_74102321879733902_n  Here’s a closer look at the bookshelf/tv stand.  The Sing, Dance, Live stones were given to me by my mother and the basket next to the stand holds all of my Bible study stuff and a blanket in case anyone gets cold 😛

11046608_1552627561681398_1485191172859691516_n And finally, this is Nathan and I’s bedroom 😀

The only picture not on here is one of the game room only because we’re not done setting it up yet! Once we are I’ll update it!  Until then thanks for reading!

Starting a Life Together

So big news everyone!!! Nathan and I have been approved for the apartment of our dreams!!!  Our year and a half back together has been far from a fairytale, heck what we have gone through in this past year and a half is more than some couples experience in their entire lives together.  It wouldve torn some apart and at times it did; but by the grace of God, who held us together, life is finally starting to look up!  Nathan is actually excited again and seeing him happy, just makes me more than overjoyed! I’ll show you the pictures i took then explain a little of the layout!

Okay so all these pics are from the upstairs(except for the bottom right pic which is the downstairs bedroom)  So the top right is part of the living room and kitchen! the living room is huge!! and alll of this is upstairs.  As soon as you walk in the house, there’s stairs then, if you turn right, theres a small hallway.  On the left side of the hallway is a closet door and a bathroom door; on the right side is Nathans favorite door, the garage(which is freakin huge lol); then at the end of the hall is the downstairs bedroom which will be our game room 😀  When you come upstairs, theres the massive living room that goes into the kitchen.  Behind that white pantry door is washer/dryer hook ups, then beyond the frige is the door to the back patio!  Which is a balcony patio!!  It’s really quite cool.  on the left side of the kitchen is a bathroom door then a small small small hallway that leads to the upstairs bedroom.   Both bedrooms are equal in size which is perfect because it allowed for so much more space in all the other rooms!  I’m so excited because i can see a future in this place; Christmas’s and Thanksgivings together…somewhere where both of our families can fit given that we both have big families lol.  I’m excited for cookouts and summer fun activities and, of course, decorating!!  Making this place look nice and stay nice!  Then, later down the road, kids.  Nathan and I cannot wait to have kids one day!  And this place is big enough for a start!

But anywho continuing on, here are some of the things I’d like to get to get us started!!

Sarah is really really excited and loves to decorate and shop lol.  So since Nathan, being the amazing boyfriend any girl could ask for, has given me free rein to decorate as i please, Sarah and I went out and looked at prices!  The red seat with glass table is the set we’d like to get for the back balcony patio at some point!  It would just fit perfect!  The kitchen will be colorful with the simple but colorful knife set along with measuring cups and rug.  The living room with be filled with natural light using white curtains that just flow angelically.  Thats the other thing awesome about this place is it has such a great source of natural light!  The black and white rug set is for the bathroom; it comes with two rugs, a shower curtain, and shower curtain rings for 15 bucks!

There is so much more i could say but to finish this off, I am so excited and feel so blessed!  I feel like God has just brought us through everything tough to get us to this point.  Nathan has been nothing but amazing and I can’t describe the love for him that i have in words.  He’s the kindest, toughest, most God loving guy I have ever met.  Through everything he never once turned his back to God which is more than I can say.  He and his family, through anything, stay true to God and it is something that I am blessed to have in my life.  Theyve shown me what being a Christian and believer in God really means; and i can’t thank them enough for it.  I am a better person because of Nathan and his family.
