People keep asking me, “When are you going to show pictures of the new place?” and I’m like, “What the zoo and children’s museum and playground aren’t enough?” But apparently the people want to see, “pictures on your walls, and your kitchen, and… I dunno… YOU!” (as quoted from the bestie). And then I grumble and groan and procrastinate because you know, it’s an apartment. It has dirty dishes and bad lighting and all that jazz.

But in keeping with the spirit of It’s Real Life, I’ve decided to post an impromptu set of pictures that show what our apartment looks like. This is by no means a complete coverage of the place – I haven’t photographed, for instance, the master bedroom, bathroom or living room yet. But here are a few things mentioned in Ange’s demand, myself not included. Oh and remember – if you aren’t hovering over each picture, you are missing half the fun!

First: The View From Our Balcony

Next, our dining room:

The Hallway, complete with pictures and one crazy child:

The Kitchen:

MM’s Toy Room:

The Kid(s) Bedroom:

The End (For Now)…

    Ooh it looks lovely. The views out of your apartment are beautiful. You look so settled in when you haven’t been there long. You have been really busy. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for sharing your part of the world. That’s awesome that you’ve already hung stuff on the walls. We’ve been here for almost 5 years and there are still rooms that need to be put together. I like that Mr. Potato Head is hanging out in the pass thru.

    @ Andrea McMann : Wow that is uncanny similarity! Yes it is very beautiful here, especially the area we live in – it’s more suburban than other parts of the city, more trees, etc.

    Looks like your all settled in! Looks like MM is settled in pretty nicely as well.

    I never realized how beautiful Wisconsin is! Nice apartment, and right across from the liquor store! WOOHOO! 😉

    Seriously, we used to have an apartment right across the street from a dollar store, and my son and I had tons of fun people-watching the customers. He was just about MM’s age then, and my daughter was born when we lived there…AND we moved there after hubby’s job was transferred. So, to make a short story long, I know how you’re feeling.

    Oh, the memories!

    Oh I love it, absolutely love it. I feel like I am there with you!! I love that Michael snuck his way into almost every picture. It looks beautiful!

    Did I tell you I “took” your “advice” which wasn’t advice but something you said… and I moved the girls to one room and made Gabrielle’s room a play space for them. It seems to be working out well. Im hoping this forces them to get along. We shall see!
