Our Apartment- Part 1

Well after taking a very long break from my blog, I am finally back!! And I am married now to the love of my life, Danny. Married life is a blast, and I think one of the funnest parts is having our own place and decorating it. So I thought that I would put up some pics of our new place while we have all the Christmas stuff up. So here are some pictures of our living room and some of the dining room. When you walk into the apartment that chair is directly in front of you. So this is the left side of the living room. That door in the left of the picture goes into the laundry room/wet room and then that is the kitchen in the back. Our DVD rack spins so it has 2 sides and it is completely full now that Danny and I have combined our collections, and after we went haywire on Black Friday and bought over 20 more. Luckily we have extra storage in our tv stand and we already have half of that full though. Haha. We love movies... Danny's parents gave us this beautiful statue!

This is on the other side of the room, our couch!

So this is a cute frame that we bought with some of the gift cards from our wedding. We have pictures of all our nieces and nephews in it. (Thanks to all of your blogs for all the pictures in it... hahaha)

Here is our Christmas tree! We did it red, black, and silver.

All lit up!!

The other side of the living room

This is our new temple picture that we just love. We actually bought it from our photographer from our wedding. Some day when we have more money I would really like to get it into a thicker frame, because I think it would look so much cooler. But for now it still looks great.

So that clock is actually a dark red, but you can't really tell from the picture. Our tv stand is filled with all of Danny's nintendos... a Wii, an XBOX, and a Playstation 2. Haha. And then our blu ray player that we splurged on on Black Friday. But we love it!

Here is the dining room which is just around the wall that the tv stand is on. We have a tall pub
table and I love the way it looks. It is just the right size for our apartment. That door leads out to our balcony.

These are the cutest placemats that we got at Target!
So there you have it. Thanks to my wonderful husband for hanging everything on the walls! I will put up pictures of the other rooms some other time but we still haven't gotten everything hung up in our bedroom so I want to wait til we do that to post pictures of it.

Finally got to see the couch! So, how many big clocks do you have?! Didn't you know that newlyweds aren't suppose to have such a nice, MATCHING apartment?! Spoiled!! It looks super cute though! How come your decorating sense didn't kick in when we shared a room?! See you tomorrow!

What cute pics Mellors, Love the apartment.

Wow, your place looks amazing. And yes, it's a bit odd for a newly wed couple to have matching things, but I guess you've managed to do it right! I love the family frame and I did notice the pictures from my blog! You're too cute. Love the little apartment and sometime when we're visiting again I'd love to see it in person. Have fun and enjoy this early time together!!
