When the future Dr. Hubby and I moved in together, after we got engaged this past February, I was hesitant to spend any money to really decorate our apartment. I was thinking that if we could possibly be leaving the area next June, I don’t really want to waste any money when I could be saving it and just making do with what I have. Yes, I am my father’s daughter, who taught me to save as much as I can.
Well, since he has been away on his away rotations I decided enough was enough and I was going to do something to make our place a little more “homey.” Now don’t get me wrong, we have a nice one bedroom apartment that has granite and stainless steel appliances, that looked nice on it’s own, but it didn’t feel like our home. So last Saturday I got a bug up my butt and put pictures up on the walls and added some things to our “kitchen area. Progress!
