I'm going to get real with you

I agree, friends, that I've withheld pictures of the new apartment for long enough. I'm going to get real with you for a moment- it's a total work in progress. We have not hung a single curtain, bought any rugs, and have hung less things on the walls than I have fingers. But, this is my home and I'd like to share it with you. You can click on any picture to make it larger.

As you first walk in the front door, here is what you see...
To your right is the kitchen...

Through the kitchen is this amazing pantry. It is litterly big enough to turn into a home office, if either of us ever did anything on our computers that didn't involve lounging on the couch. In addition to housing all of our food and kitchen appliances, I also displayed some of my favorite things in this pantry.

Past the kitchen is the living room with the ottoman I got for Christmas and my brand new chair. The antique telephone stand is currently being used as a mail station {even though I am not getting any mail delivered here}.

To the right of the living room is the dining room {which is actually just part of the living room that I put my table and fireplace in}

To the right of the dining room is the guest bedroom and bathroom. The guest bedroom is the most neglected room in the house {I'm embarrassed to show it in this state but I really want some guests!}. The guest bathroom has the most amazing "rain" shower head from Sharper Image. I don't know why it took me 3 weeks to try it out but now that I have, I am taking over this bathroom as my own!

To the left of the living room is the master bedroom and bathroom. JJ and I both have our own closets which is really nice {and by nice, I mean marriage-saving}.
The jar in the last picture is filled with memorabilia years of special times: ticket stubs, matchboxes from special restaurants, airline tickets, etc. Those books are antique copies of my favorite classic novels. Someday I'd like to put a chair and reading lamp next to them.

So there you have it- our REAL, nothing on the walls, take it or leave it new apartment! What do you think?
