Domesticating our future home

Posted by on October 13, 2014 • Filed Under Lifestyle

For the past few weeks, Juan and I have been devoted to finishing wedding and apartment details. Time flies so we need to get everything in order now because if we don’t, December will come creeping up on us and we’ll be way behind.

We have been buying things we need for the apartment. We got our fridge delivered this past Friday and we have been getting things for our kitchen. We both love to cook, Juan especially. He also loves to bake so it has been a priority to have a well-equipped kitchen.

As you will see in the image above, we’ve bought things for baking and cooking. From the things we have purchased, I think our kitchen is ready. We have essentials like towels and bed comforters. We just need to get a bed with a mattress, an A/C unit and I think we’re done.

It’s definitely exciting to get things for a place you can call your own, especially one that you will share with your special someone. Once the apartment is ready, I will definitely share some pictures!

    How exciting to start planning for and shopping for a brand new home!! That must be so special! Good luck with wedding plans and all - I know how stressful it can be, although you're wellin advance. I'm curious, what's a flour sifter? I've never heard of such a thing!

      It definitely feels special! A flour sifter is used to separate the lumps in the flour, extremely useful when baking.

    Shopping for stuff for a new home is always fun and a bit stressful but it sounds like you guys have it under control.

    I don’t have my own place, but I get excited about the thought of it all the time. I am so happy for you that you are furnishing your new place! My boyfriend loves cooking; I know if we move in together, he will want to stock up on kitchen/cooking supplies :D

    The kitchen is like the heart of a home. It's great that both of you enjoy cooking. Home cooked meals are the best. I don't live in my own apartment, so I can only imagine the excitement that comes with living your own. Good luck with your wedding plans and your apartment; it looks like you have everything under contol!

    Even though this is our second home, I have to say I had more fun getting it together and buying stuff for it than I did our first so I definitely understand. Next year I will start planning our 10 year renewal ceremony and I'm sure it's going to stress me out! Glad that you are enjoying yourself so far!
