I am finally back home after being away for more than a week. It also means that I have finally been able to unpack all of my Christmas items – both gifted and Boxing Day purchases.
Before I went to my parents’ for the holidays, I had a huge list of things that I needed to purchase in order to function properly in my new home. Since it’s all unpacked now, and I feel like more of an adult, I thought I’d finally share some pictures of my new place (and general Christmas things) with ya’ll!
The first thing you see when you come in is my kitchen (a little cluttered from unpacking and washing all the new things)
The microwave and kettle were recent additions after the holiday week! Also this loverly drawer for my cookbooks. I have this obsession with my mom’s Betty Crocker cookbook, which is older than I am and falling apart, and I would steal it in a heartbeat and just never give it back. But now I don’t have to! Since she got me my own mwahaha! And a slow cooker book as well. Awesome sauce with cherries and sprinkles my friends!
Another new addition, and something that I had to purchase, containers for leftovers. So freaking happy! I got all these glass dishes (microwave/oven/dishwasher safe) for $20!!! Thank you boxing day! I’m a tiny bit crazy with keeping things sorted with lids. Since I have to deal with Tupperware drawers every day at work, and my parent’s cabinet which will just chaos, I have learned to love organization.
Then the living room. The big hole in the wall is apparently going to be filled with an electric fireplace once the landlord finds one he likes for a good price.
Onto the massive bedroom (yes there is a couch in there) and a full wall of closets
Which then connects to the bathroom through this door beside a wall of ceiling to floor mirrors (which then connects back into the open area where the kitchen is on the other side)
And lastly, this little cutie finally found a home.
Just general Christmas things:
Saw this hilarious “vehicle” while out with my brother. It’s only big enough for one person.
Brought out my Cat in the Hatopoly, and crushed my mom. MWAHAHAHA… just a general PSA: Never play any type of monopoly with me. You will regret it. Actually, expand that to fit all board games.
And, of course, each year my mom makes me a pair of mittens to match whatever winter coat/accessories I have that year. This year I have a brand new dark blue coat and white boots so she made me these amazing white mittens which have silver twisted in (aka SPARKLY GLITTER MITTENS!). The wind always blows right through them, so I took an odd scrap of fabric from her fabric trunk and made a liner for them. She even had two skeins of yarn left which I took home to make a scarf to match!
I hope ya’ll had a great holiday with your loved ones!
