it ain't much... but it's home

playing at the beach (malibu)

welcome to our second home! it is a little sparse but we have all that we need and that is good enough for us.

the bed... or should i say mattress
 we didn't want to rent any furniture because...
  1. we won't be in the apartment that much... especially carsen
  2. it was super expensive and even if we buy a few things it would probably be less than one months rent in furniture
  3. this summer is an adventure
the kitchen... so freaking nice

our family room and dinning room were completely bare up until two days ago when our extremely gracious neighbors (who are also selling/working with us) decided to lend us their extra couch and coffee table. now we actually have a place to sit and a place to eat... so glad to have now.

and the bathroom. much bigger than our last and much nicer... even though we don't have much in this apartment... i think i will miss it when we leave.

California- update

A few things first. i must introduce our new car.
Her name is Daisy Dodge and she is a sassy little thing. We rescued her from a terrible relationship. Her previous owner had a bad habit of picking her nose and wiping it all over poor little Daisy. i don't think i've seen a car in such a state. She was a bit bruised and battered but now she has a whole new glow about her.

we spent several hours cleaning her... no kidding... hours! we wore gloves, glasses, and face masks. we had to pick out all the nooks and crannies of all the crap. we didn't just have to vacuum, but we had to extract all the dog hair with brushes and duct tape. Then we had to wash the chairs with carpet cleaner... gross.

Once we got her all clean we packed  her as full as we could and headed south to california. we stopped in las vegas for the night at the Buffalo Bill Hotel. it smelt like a disney land ride but it was cheap and that was good enough for the two of us.

The next day we made our way down to California, Succesfully moved in, and then headed straight for the pool. we don't have much... no furniture, no tv, no internet, and hardly any service... but hey... it's just for 4 months and we can pretty much do anything for 4 months.

We Are Moving!

I have been packing away our things all day and i am no where close to being finished... probably because i keep organizing rather than packing. on top of that i am limited to what i can pack away, after all we still have 2 days left in this apartment. I'm getting anxious to be out of this home and into the next. Carsen and i are moving to Los Angeles for the summer. we are both working for a pest control company, Cars will be selling and i will working in their offices. it will be an exciting change to be living in California on our own. the company we are selling with set us up in some amazing apartments. in fact, we probably wont live in another place as nice as this for a very long time.

Here are some pictures of what our apartment looks like... realistically we are not gonna be able to make it look as fancy as they can but hey... we are not complaining.

like i said... not complaining.
