New Apartment for Us!

On Sunday, Dane and I signed a lease for our new apartment together! We're really excited and absolutely love the apartment. It's not far from where I live now, just on the other side of the Stony Brook T stop and the park. Easy walk to the subway and the Sam Adams Brewery and it even has a roof deck!

The apartment is a two bedroom, but it's kind of 2.5 bedrooms because the bedroom we will use has another small room off of it. Not sure what we'll do with it yet. We'll use the second bedroom as a guest room, since we have people visit often enough. The kitchen is big and we'll have plenty of room to spread out when we cook. Anyone who knows us will understand how important a nice kitchen is to both of us.

The lease starts April 15, but my current lease doesn't end until April 30, so we'll take those two weeks to slowly move things over. We'll be able to do a lot of smaller trips just using my car. Then we'll probably be able to rent a U-Haul for a day to move the larger stuff (beds, couch, desks, etc.). That's when we'll have our moving party and Jason and Sam will come over to help :)

I'll post pictures as soon as I have some. I guess this means I should start thinking about packing. Anyone have some boxes we could use?

We are SO there! :-) Can't wait to help you guys!

We may have some boxes... Jason just gave some away but I'll ask him. I HATE collecting boxes for moving... and you know we've done enough of THAT in the past! :-)
