We'd Love Some Visitors....

So we have had some request of pic of our new residence and here they are! I'll take you on a tour of our house. The first pics are of our apartement parking lot. There are 20 units in our complex of townhouses and this is what we see when we walk out our door. The trees here are definitely the biggest change in scenery for me. I have never seen so many and they are so tall! You really can never see very far in any direction because there are so many trees.

Next you'll see our front door and my lovely pumpkin that I painted. The apartments aren't much to look at on the outside, but they will be painted next year and should look a lot better.

When you walk in the front door there are stairs straight ahead and the living room to the left. It took forever to get this room together because we waited for almost a month for new carpet. Thankfully it finally came and looks sooo much better.

Throught the living room is the kitchen, laundry closet and a half bath. I am so pleased with all of the cabinet space and 2 bathrooms is sooo nice. There are sliding doors to a tiny back deck which desperatly needs some love. We are hoping to build a deck next spring on the back.

That is the downstairs so onto the upstairs. There is a master bedroom, one bathroom, and a spare bedroom. I took a picture of our room, the bathroom and the closet in the spare bedroom which Soren has converted to his office. I haven't done much on the upstairs yet, especially the extra bedroom so no pics of it. Once we find out what the baby is I will start decorating the nursery. So we love all the space and the freedom to decorate here. We really have a great set-up, decent rent considering the area and super nice neighbors.

We hardly know each other, but we were in the same ward freshman year and are friends on facebook. That's how I saw the link to your blog...hope you don't mind! :) I just had to tell you that I grew up 10 minutes from Lynnwood, in Bothell, and my parent's ward is in the Lynnwood Stake. Everything you show and talk about is home to me. I definitely don't miss the gray, rainy seasons, but you get used to them and the summers are gorgeous, so I hope you enjoy it there!

Your place looks AWESOME--you've really done a great job with it! It looks so inviting and is so nice and organized! I can't believe you were able to do all that while going through the first stages of pregnancy! You're amazing!!! I'm so jealous that you have your own laundry room---that will be SOoo nice when you have the baby. Your carpet looks really great too--we're still waiting for the new carpet they promised us a year ago... ours is forest green and desperately needs help! Congrats on everything--it looks like you guys are doing just great :)

The place looks great! I do like those couches better than the other ones you were going to get. Much better choice! :) I think that our visit up north will have to be postponed. The ticket prices jumped up 70 bucks, we might need to hold off on that. Maybe during the summer?? Or baby time? :)
