I apologize in advance for the craziness of this blog post — pictures of every room we live in on the internet!! As most of you know who read this blog (because we are most likely related to you), we just moved in to our new home for the next year in Chicago.
After spending a wonderful weekend in Ohio with the VanOsses, we moved in to our apartment on Sunday afternoon. We were worried about traffic, etc. because there was a Cubs game in the afternoon and our new place is a few blocks from Wrigley Field, but thanks to cousin Andrew we were able to move everything in during the 3 hour span of game time!!… and the Cubs lost by 1 in the 9th.
Anyway, moving on to our apartment. Here are some pictures after a 4 days of moving in:
This first one is of 2 of the 4 rooms! Our kitchen and dining room are still a bit cluttered but starting to feel like home. The back window looks out over the open air patio of our Moroccan restaurant neighbors below… and that door leads down in to the kitchen of the restaurant! We have already started blaming our own bad smells on the fact that we live over a Moroccan restaurant – convenient huh?
I really don’t know what we would do without our beautiful built-in. Why architects, why do they not do built-in’s any more? (I wish I knew how to take better indoor pictures like those real estate people). Bedroom 1:
And finally, our guest bedroom ready for our wonderful friends!
Sorry males coming to visit, Anthropologie did throw up in this room.
We hope all of our wonderful friends and family are doing well! We are spending our days looking for work and trying to do cheap to free things around town. We are loving being a zero car family and making our way around by foot or on the el. More updates from Clark street to come…
