Stephen and I went to see our first apartment today...by that I mean we have never looked at apartments together. It was a huge step in the hunt for a new house. I had to explain to Stephen why you have to go and tour places....pictures are VERY deceiving. The apartment today was case and point. It looked cute and warm and inviting from the few photos posted online but once we got there it was tiny (tinier than our current apartment) and very cold and dingy, old...just not some place that felt very "homie" but we managed to get out to see our first place and I am setting up a few more places for us to go see. I decided to even take a look at some apartment buildings...can I get an what what!!!! Yeah that's right Mrs. Anti Apartment Building has decided to cave and at least take a few tours of buildings. It will have to be the perfect apartment though, and on the 2nd or 3rd floor..no higher no lower and our bedroom MUST be on an outside wall. I do not want to deal with noisy next door neighbours. I have very strict restrictions for apartment buildings. We are also going to see a place on the other side of town but we figured it we are out looking at places we have a better chance of getting a feel for what we must have and what we do not want. I can also rest better knowing I am being pro-active about the housing situation. Over the next week we'll have a good 3-4 places to visit and see and maybe one will be the perfect home for us. Also, in our search I have learned that Google maps is severely mistaken most of the time.
On a completely different and kind of cool subject, does anyone else see anything in the picture below? Look carefully at the picture of Ty's shadow box...do you notice the angel face and wing over looking Ty? I noticed it the other day while sitting on the couch. You can't see it in his actual shadow box but in this picture you can...kind of cool eh?
