home tour part 1

Finally!  I have pictures from our new apartment!  I’ll start in our living/dining room.  It’s no longer a slash gym!  Yay!  One of my favorite parts of our living room is our new bookshelf next to the TV.  It’s slanted and holds some of our favorite stuff (and apparently some cords…)new abode-017

We used to only have a couch and so if we have 3 people over we sat side by side.  Not great for conversation.

We just recently got a futon and now have so much more seating.

I love all of this seating.

In addition to the futon we have our first fireplace/additional seating area.  I can’t wait until the winter and when we can our our very own fire! yay!

The fireplace is right next to the dining room.  One wall features my DC pictures, including a picture of where Dan and I met :)

The final part of of the living/dining room is the credenza.  My mom and I got this piece at target (can you believe it! I love target).  Inside the credenza are some mementos from my grandmother, my U.S. Senate tumblers and my dad’s old beer steins.  On top of the credenza are; my wedding flowers(they were silk flowers) and a silver chest my dad gave my grandmother that I have inherited.  Hanging on the wall is a drawing that my grandmother painted and I inherited.

The best part of the living room is that this is our view from the couch.
