New Home in Bellevue

Well as most of you know, Andy was hired on full time at Laplink. And as most of you know, once he got a full time job we were moving out! So we finally did it. I can't believe the time has finally come that we get to be out on our own again. It's such an amazing feeling to have our own place, pay our own bills, buy our own groceries (not that we didn't appreciate the free food for 9 months from the in-laws), vacuum our own carpet, and don't forget DECORATE (which I still have to find the time for).
We've appreciated so much Andy's parents for letting us stay with them so we could save up and be able to get our own place. Because of them we were able to buy a new TV, table and chairs, and some other random furniture we needed to fill the apartment. Thank you!!
So it took us about 5 hours to get everything loaded into the U-haul, unloaded, and in to the house. I can't believe we got it done so fast! Now it took just a little bit longer than that to get things organized...but let me tell you, it's amazing how much space we have here! I think we figured it out and our apartment back in Logan was about 375-400 square feet (ya, and we lived there a year!!!) and our apartment here is 670-ish. I still have a cupboard in the kitchen that doesn't have anything in it. It's crazy, and I love it!
For some reason, since we've moved out I assume that I'm going to have tons more time on my hands. So with all that "extra" time I've decided that I'm going to paint some pictures to decorate the walls with, kinda scary, but it can't be that hard right? I also have another fun collage, mod podge project I'm going to start. I'm so excited! I'll definitely put pictures up for all to enjoy. :)
Well I think that's about it for now. We are just so happy to finally be at the point in our lives that we've dreamt of ever since we got married. It's been hard, especially the decision to leave Utah and start a new life in a completely new place. But now, we finally see why we made that decision!


  1. I love it Kell! I can't stop smiling for you! It darling. I wish that I could be there right now just to see everything! AND! Thanks for finally posting a blog! I love it.

  2. A&K, I love your new apartment-it looks so dang cozy! I am so happy for you two I don't know anybody who deserves it more! Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see it in person (maybe next year~). love you both
