I moved!!!

This time last year I was frantically searching for a place to live. I was living at my parents' house and needed out, I had been there for a year. Anyway, I got pissed one day because my mom opened up all of my mail. She had done this in the past and I had nicely asked her to stop several times. This time would be the last... I found an apartment the next day.

You know how when you think that you really need something, you jump at the first thing you find that is somewhat close to what you think you need? This is what me and my roommate Rach did. We found a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with new appliances and a cute back porch that opened up to a field. We had access to a pool, hot-tub, sauna, work-out room and other ammenities that we really didn't need. Anyway, our rent was OUTRAGEOUS! We were paying $889 a month, plus utilities!

We had a year lease, so we had been looking for a cheaper place to live. We also had taken on a third roommate, Meg. So about a month ago, we all started looking for places around where we were currently living but couldn't find anything. After severe bouts of frustration, we decided to start looking in a small town about 30 minutes from where we were living.

We found the cutest house. It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house with a huge kitchen, living room (with a gas fireplace), a huge storage shed, carport and really nice backyard. The greatest thing is that we are only paying $650 a month, plus utiliites!!! My rent is now $217 a month, as opposed to almost $450.

I think I forgot to tell you that in our 2BR/2BA apartment we had 3 people, a Pitbull/Vizsla mix dog and 3 cats...Now at least the animals and us have room to move about.

Last weekend we moved into the house, we got everything moved and in place in a day! Oh and I got to drive a huge U-Haul!! Too bad I haven't done anything to my bedroom...I need to make a trip to Ikea ASAP so I can have pretty things to make my room what I need it to be (and hey, since I have boo-koos of extra money that I'm saving from the rent, I may as well).

Anyway, I promise that pictures will come soon...I just haven't had time to get everything done and take pictures...

Hope you all have great weekends!

Silly girls, You must use the amenities you pay for. I bought an Infared Sauna last month to help relax.
