Apartment Details

 Here's our front door, which we finally put a coat rack on. Next to it is a cubby for shoes. Above that is a bird key holder(I believe this was from Gma, thanks!), and above that is our finger print tree from our wedding.

 
 The sun comes in pretty strong through one of our kitchen windows, so I found some fabric and made curtains! I love this pattern; it goes great with everything.

 
I got this rug at Big Lots! I love all the colors, and it makes washing dishes a bit comfier.

Some lovely roses we picked up at the grocery store.

 And those same roses drying! I love how they look when they hang.

 

Dried roses in various bottles line our kitchen window. 

Curtains I made for the bathroom! Had to order this fabric from SpoonFlower; totally worth it.

I love love love these prints! They're in the bathroom, helping to give it a nautical feel.

Liz is finally growing lemons! How exciting!

Well goodness

Turns out I've got Bronchitis and Sinusitis. I don't believe I've ever had either, and man oh man do they suck. Lots of painful coughing and blowing my nose. I'm on three prescriptions and trying to just take it easy. I've discovered two foods that feel wonderful right now:



Egg drop soup! It's basically just chicken broth with eggs. Our favorite chinese restaurant makes it for about $2 and a bowl is enough for two meals (so all my lunches and dinners are this pretty much).




Cantaloupe! Cold and wet feels good on the throat, any melon would probably work, I'm just partial to cantaloupe. 

Also lots of water and juice, that's been my ticket to getting better. Hopefully I'll start feeling better in a couple days. Can't wait to stop coughing!
