dinner anyone?


here's our cute little dining area. the table pulls out to seat four more. and of course it's from IKEA. the dark tan wall color was left from the last renters and honestly i love it. i asked them to leave it if they could. so see manda, we have a little bit of color.

so to answer some questions from piper:
Do you eat out alot? we're trying not to, just to save money. but at the same time there are so many good restaurants around here to tempt us.

Do you walk to get groceries? i do, just a couple of blocks but you really pay attention to what you buy. if i've grabbed too many heavy items i'll put some back and get them next trip. and reusable grocery bags are great, they hold more so you have less bags to struggle with and you can throw them over the shoulder for easier carrrying.

What do you miss the most since moving? besides everything? i really miss my house but i really don't miss cleaning it. i miss our schedule, we usually had something to do every day of the week. i miss my friends from upstate. i miss my job. i however will not miss the snow.

What do you love the most about living there? i love walking everywhere. at first it was exhausting but once your body gets used to it, you really start to enjoy it. but you must must must wear good shoes, my feet are covered in blisters so i'm still learning which of my shoes can walk exactly how many blocks.

Good post. I can see how you wouldn't have the time or inclination to cook...being so busy and all with...um...with the general...um...day to day...activities. Busy gal.

So people actually live there? That photo looks like it's straight out of a making-you-jealous home-and-living magazine!

You may come decorate my home. =)

Melissa said...

Oh, well, okay then. Hmph. I'll have to go to someone else's home and be jealous then.
I'll have to remember the "Move the Junk" trick next time I take pictures of the house! :o)
