How do you like your place?
Once the moving in is finished I am quite certain I will love it. I already like it much better then I did in our last place for the obvious reasons that our stuff is here and we are no longer living in what I will now and forever refer to as the "monopoly house".
Do you like having your stuff?
Did you hear what you just said? I didn't have our stuff before and now I do so I believe that could be answered with one word "duh."
How is it coming together?
Well...I still have too much stuff and no matter how hard I try I can not seem to get rid of it. It is going to take me quite a while to get it how I want it. I also don't think that it will ever be perfect because I am in a rental but it is coming together. It will just be something to keep me busy for the four years I'm here :)
Those are really the 3 main questions I am getting but if you have anymore I would love to answer them. I understand that it is going to take me a while but I will have this place organized eventually and the main goal is to do it so that I don't have to go through this crazy unpacking mess again :)

(please excuse the 'flatrate shipping boxes' that i'm using as a table because we're still in temporary housing so you use what you've got:)
I then cut the card stock so that it would fit in the frame. I couldn't find a sheet that would go all the way across so I centered one and filled in the spaces on either side with the other two sheets so that the seams from the paper looked like they were intentional instead of on accident. I then took a t-square and made sure all the pictures were center and straight and then tape them in place with some photo friendly adhesive. The end result:
All of the photo's were black and white except for the one in the middle. We accidentally missed the button to change it to black and white and I didn't want to leave it out so I put it in the center. Because i'm so thrifty this whole endevor was under $7. (Pictures: free frame: 4.98 (1/2 off 9.99) and $2.00 for paper).
We move into our new house in 2 days and I can not wait to hang this in a special place!
