If you look to your right you will see our living room. It is a cozy little place where we spend a lot of time. The above photo reveals many things about us. We have a busy office area and cork board plastered with all of hopes and dreams for the future; and staying in touch has become somewhat of a fire hazard with all of the cable and electrical cords strung everywhere.
Also in the living room, we have the most totally awesome couch in the world. The missionaries are always trying to get us to "impart" of what we have by trading them couches, but I could blog all day and all night on this couch, hence, the computer is on the coffee table. (The computer is also there because we can only go 2 or 3 days without watching old episodes of Star Trek on CBS.com--I heart Spok.)
Directly in front of the dining area is the kitchen. All the white cabinets and countertops are something I just love to hate. However, I do like how it is nice and bright and open.
Even though the rent on this place is more than some peoples' mortgages, I am thankful everyday that I have my own washer and dryer and that I don't have to drag my dirty unmentionables to the laundromat or share with anyone anymore. It may seem laughable, but I don't take it for granted. (Oh and the soda? Buy 2 get 3 free sale...moment of weakness.)
This is our guest bathroom. If you haven't noticed by now, I'll let you in on a little secret. Somehow we were lucky enough to get the handicap accessible apartment which means all the light switches are lower, hallways and doorways are wider, there is a strobe light on the fire alarm, and as you can see there are handles around the showers and toilets. We are livin' the good life now baby!This is the spare room aptly called the "junk room". My first reaction to shooting this photo was, "there's nothin' to see here folks..."as if a tragic accident had occured here, but upon closer inspection it actually reveals a lot about us. Bikes, treadmill, giant ball, boombox, primary lesson manual, enrichment craft project box, rubbermaid bins full of things that never get used, but for some reason cannot be thrown away...if the lens had been wider the list would have been longer. At any rate, if anyone wants stay in this spare room I would be more than happy to clean it out--just for you!
