Huxley and the Hairdryer

I am so glad it is Friday! It has been a long week working overtime and trying to shake a cold! Scottie and I don't have plans for this weekend yet, but we do have good news!

So last year, I moved into the apartment we're in now, but it wasn't the apartment we had signed a lease for. I mean, it was, but it was a handicapped version of it - so doors were wider, the bathroom is probably half of our house (that part I wasn't complaining about ;-)) and the counters were lowered. Because it was move in day, I was so upset but still had to go somewhere. So we moved in on condition that we could have a free transfer at any time with no admin or deposit fees.

Well, the market value for apartments has been insane lately, but finally this past month I found the layout I wanted and the location of our complex. Our complex is beautiful, white picket fences, dog parks, basketball courts, and greenery everywhere. We're also in a cul de sac on our own street. I absolutely love it! We got it at the same rent we're paying now (thank goodness, rents are over $100 what we're paying right now so I am grateful), and we move on my birthday weekend!! (Dec 8-10th) :) Yay! I am so happy we'll finally be in a normal non-awkward looking apartment where I can decorate the way I want to!!!

Anyway, that's really all I have for today. Making some delicious recipes over the weekend that will be posting up next week and a possible guest post so stay tuned!

As I get back to work, enjoy watching Huxley's new obsession. My hair dryer. (sorry it is kind of dark - late at night) - You would think he'd be afraid of vaccuum cleaners and hairdryers, but he is in full force taking this thing on! Haha, it is too funny. (Btw, yes. I'm sitting on the floor playing with a hairdryer with my dog. don't judge me :) hehe)
