Before we say goodbye to our apartment and hello to our new house, I thought it’d be nice to make a post about how the place we currently call home has progressed over the past year.
Evan lived at this apartment complex a couple years before we were dating, and it was definitely a guy’s place. To his credit, it was by far the cleanest guy’s place I’ve ever stepped foot in and he had some pretty badass stuff: a collection of nerf guns, a legit light saber, and a table-top arcade controller thingy (technical term) that took over the entire coffee table. But give the guy some credit, at least he had a coffee table!
We never took proper pictures of the apartment itself back then, but you can get an idea from these shots. On a side note, the apartment pictured below is actually his old larger unit. Before we were dating, I suggested he moved into a smaller one to save money. Miss frugal. Little did I know that in a year I’d be trying to squeeze all my crap into this much smaller space. His newer unit looked pretty much the same as the one in these pics though before I moved in, so you can get an idea.
On another side note, our friends are awesome ^_^
See, definitely a guy’s place. But his lack of curtains was not enough to scare me off! I moved in in April of 2012, and all of a sudden it looked like a hurricane of clothes, coffee mugs, and throw pillows had hit the place. Just take a glimpse at the craziness below.
Yeah, it’s scary. After a few weeks we turned it into something a little more manageable, but we still had piles of art taking up about 1/3 of the living room. Evan paints and I do digital art, so we had way more stuff to put on the walls than this apartment could handle.
In the meantime Mochi was making herself at home amidst the crazy. Cats can be comfy anywhere.
After weeks of Goodwill trips, meticulous organizing, and becoming pros at assembling IKEA furniture, we were able to turn that craziness into this!
Well there you have it, a glimpse at the place we currently call home! Excited to see how the new house compares since we’ll have even more freedom to make it our own.
