Decisions, decisions.


Which one looks best?

Which one looks best?

So within the next couple of weeks I’m going to be choosing a sofa. The only thing is I can’t decide which color. I found this one with the chaise that I am in love with, the only thing is- I can’t choose between the colors! The black is a faux leather and the grey is microfiber. I like them both equally and also love that the yellow pops out against them.

My bedroom is purple and grey (and some yellow) and my kitchen also has yellow so I want to kind of keep the same theme with the yellow accents. I already have black end tables so those stay, but the couch I just can’t decide!

Help a girl out? What color do you think looks best?

Thanks for helping me decorate my new apartment!


Weekly Wishes!

I am SO excited to share these this week!

First, let’s take a look back at last week’s goals:

1) Work out at least 2 days this week
2) Make some decisions on apartments
3) get through the Mayor’s inauguration

I am happy to announce that I accomplished ALL THREE! Woo!

I got my workouts in (even if it was just a short one or walking the dog a bit faster).

I made some MAJOR decisions on apartments. I found one that I am in LOVE with and I will be putting in my rental papers for tomorrow! I also bought a new mattress and I’m already in love with it. I sleep so well on it and I can’t wait for it to be able to move into my apartment when it’s ready. For now it’s living in my boyfriend’s house (lucky man).

I also went by a home furnishing store and bought an ottoman because clearly that’s the only piece of furniture I need, ha! Really I just saw it and loved it and had to take it home. It’s also living at my boyfriend’s for now because there’s more room there than in my friend’s apartment where I’m currently staying.

And as for the Mayor’s Inauguration, it went great! The office is back to normal and all is well here in the Mayor’s Office. Now we’re back to normal busy instead of wild busy the way we were for the time leading up to the event!

For this week, I’m hoping to

1) Get bedding for my new beautiful mattress! I’m probably more excited than I should be about this bed, but it’s my first real big purchase for my apartment so I’m allowing myself to nerd out about it a little bit.
) Work out 2 days this week again. Starting small but at least it’s something.
3) Sign a lease for a new apartment!
4) Create my first Creative Collective post. I’ve got my word in mind and somewhat know how I’m going to do it so now I just have to make it.

These goals make me feel like I’m becoming an adult and it is TERRIFYING. Trying to take things one day at a time!

Weekly Wishes!


For the first time, I’m linking up with Melyssa¬†from The Nectar Collective for Weekly Wishes! This is a space to share what I’m hoping to accomplish this week, and taking a look at what I’ve accomplished so far. I thought the new year would be a good time to start this up, and it’ll be a good way to hold myself accountable!

For this week, my wishes are to 1) Work out at least 2 days this week, 2) Make some decisions on apartments, and 3) get through this inauguration!
I signed up for The Color Run yesterday and I’m really excited about it. The picture above is from when the last time I did it! It’s in April so that gives me plenty of time to train for it as long as I stick to it. I also really need to do some decision making when it comes to apartments. I’m trying to move as soon as I can so that I’m not totally taking over my friend’s apartment! With the 2 of us and the dog it’s getting a little crowded! And today is the Mayor’s inauguration! Yay! So this one might be cheating a little bit because it’s going to happen today but it’s a big deal so I’m counting it. I’m really excited about it and I think it’ll be a great day, it’s just a big event that our office has been working hard on so I want to see it go smoothly!
