Spoiled

Dustin and I went apartment shopping this weekend, in anticipation for our move. The first place we went to wasn't bad, but it was far from everything, and a little ghetto, but nothing that we weren't used to. :) The price was right though. We ventured on looking at apartments and sizing them up to the first one that we checked out. Some places hadn't even vacuumed the carpet, or they had strange smells to them...gross.
Then we found a sign on the side of the road... FOR RENT. we called the number and got the details and the apartment number. It took my breath away (which isn't hard to do, since my only specification for an apartment was TWO bedrooms.). It had new carpet, new tile, tons of windows, and it felt like a home almost, compared to what we are living in now. Don't get me wrong. It is still an apartment, but talk about an upgrade!
Another couple walked in the door to see the place, so we left and called the owner. We signed up, and got it since the owner liked us. She told us that she already had two applications in, but she wanted to rent to us. sweet!
We went back to the apartment to check out what we had just gotten ourselves into. You know, just to double check.
I have a kitchen twice the size of what I have now. including a dishwasher, disposal, and.... this is exciting.... not one, but TWO lazy susans! I am so spoiled!
And TWO bedrooms! No more rolling the port-a-crib into the living room at night. And I have a washer and dryer!
And the best part is... it isn't costing us anymore than what we pay right now. amazing.

Hooray! Dishwashers are amazing, I'm so excited for you to have one. And if your landlord likes you, that is always a plus.

Yay! I'm glad you found the perfect place! You will have to give me specifics so I can check out the neighborhood on my next drive around Logan! I'm way excited for you! (and for me, it will be great to have you close...at least for a couple months!)

I hate you. JK I don't really hate you but I am extremely jealous. What a wonderful place you have found. Next time I need to find an apartment I am going to call you and have you do the looking!
Good luck with the move!

I am so jealous you are done apt shopping. We are still at it. It's so hard shopping from Idaho and looking at pics. Kind of bad timing for us to go done since I am due next week. So who knows what we will end up with. I am excited for your new adventure, I love logan.
