Our Apartment

Our first place in Houston was a 900 SqFt apartment in a suburb of houston called clear lake. 

Living Room

View from the front door

View from the Dining room.  Gotta love our college, miss matched furniture!!

We bought this painting in Jamaica

My First attempt at DIY art.  Yes I am aware that my lines aren't straight.

View from the living room into the kitchen.

The before shot of my side tables. 

I reupholstered the top with a pillow case that I got on super duper clearance.  Sure beats orange pleather!!

Finished product!! I used matte paint so it would look Pottery Barnish...

We live in a one bedroom so we don't have anywhere to put the desk but in the living room.

Dining Room

View from the living room.  Yes, that is a turtle/fish tank in the dining room.  It was either in the dining room or in the bedroom. I think I made the logical choice!  Also, those are Christmas cards on the wall. 

The Hutch

A painting of me that my aunt Heidi did.  


This is the WORST part of our apartment.  I hate the off white appliances and the nasty wood cabinets, but it works I suppose.

Another painting that my aunt Heidi did.

The bar area aka my favorite place!!  Please ignore DH's dumb college "Last call" sign.

My Gazillion wine glasses and the nasty cabinets.

The other side of the counter


I love love love our bed!  It was a steal on craigslist for $200

View from the door.  

My new dresser from Walmart and my hamper from Ross.  I really wish I could get rid of our closet doors.

Close up of my pillows and my clock.


View from the hallway.  Yucky cabinets and yucky mirror.

Our shower and more nasty cabinets
