A week ago today I was sitting in a restaurant with Kent, eating a burger with fried green tomatoes and goat cheese. Tonight, I’m sitting on our newly built couch, stitching and watching Dateline Mysteries. It’s been a week for the record books… I drove across the state, moved into an apartment with Kent, interviewed and accepted a job at Florida State University – all on Saturday. Since then, I’ve pieced together decorations for the apartment and turned the wrong way down a few one way streets.

Sooo much appreciation for this guy. He couldn’t care less about decorations and has let me have my way with the decorations. I was afraid of buying a couch second hand from Craigslist so we settled on this couch from World Market. On sale, too! There were a few holes that didn’t line up and Kent had a reaaaal miserable time with it, but it’s done! Broke a sweat putting on the slipcover and I’ve spent the rest of the day stitching:

(Got this nifty floss organizer and realized how much floss I have… this isn’t even half)

New offices need decorations!! This goliath hoop will be in Kent’s office, working on a little something for mine right now. The new office is surreal.. I had my first day on Friday and it’s been awesome.

A couple more snaps of the apartment, it’s coming along! Kent about fainted when he saw my insane load of clothes on Saturday, but I managed to fit them all in there somewhere. More to come on apartment decorating and surviving sharing a studio!
