Moving

I am finally 100% moved! My parents left yesterday after a week of hard labor. Thankfully, I have very handy parents who can do just about everything. After the painters were finished, we started moving things and my Dad went to work changing out my electrical outlets, installing new light fixtures and shelves in my closets.

The first delivery was my new bathroom vanity, narrowly making it through the doorway. The mirror they sent was different but ended up working perfectly.

Back upstairs..this is what my apartment looked like before the real moving began...

I was subscribing to the "no boxes" style of packing..lots of tote bags and grocery carts filled with stuff. I must have made 50 trips downstairs throughout the week.

Clearing off my work table.. I was on my hands and knees searching for crystals in the carpet for over an hour.

Slowly clearing out..

New apartment filling up with my stuff...


I found my Grandmother's charm bracelet tucked in a cabinet in my bathroom. I knew it was in the apartment but haven't been able to find it in over a year. A true moving bonus!


This is what my living room looked like today when I left for work. The entraceway is full of boxes and bags, but at least I have my living room somewhat done.
More pictures to come soon!!!

Wow! I can't believe how wonderful your living room and bathroom look already. I am in desperate need of finding a few lost things--maybe I should pretend I'm moving and sort out my guest room. ;)
