This whole apartment hunt thing is exhausting! 😕 But, Mal and I saw a place this afternoon that had some serious potential. It’s good to know that they’re out there!
Before visiting the apartment, Mal and I met at Dunkin’ Donuts for a little afternoon pick-me-up.
I ordered a small decaf iced coffee with milk and sugar.
And a single chocolate glazed munchkin. Totally worth 70 calories! 😉
I liked Apartment #2 right away. 😀
The apartment is a 2-bedroom on the second floor of a single-family, owner-occupied house. And, the owner has the most adorable 10-week-old golden retriever puppy. Murphy would love her! 😉 The location is walking-distance to shops, parks, and pubic transportation. The apartment itself has just about everything we want– parking, laundry, a big backyard, plenty of storage– except a dishwasher. Boo! 👿
So, now Mal and I are on the fence about whether we can live without a dishwasher or not. Growing up, I never had one, so I know the woes of washing dishes by hand. I’ve also come to appreciate the convenience of having a dishwasher, so it might be tough, especially since I enjoy cooking and baking so much more now.
I think we’re going to keep this apartment in mind, but continue to look for a more ideal option.
Mal worked late tonight, so I threw together a quick dinner for myself. I made a big salad with gorgonzola, sliced turkey, and balsamic vinegar on top
For dessert, I enjoyed a new gluten-free cereal mix from MixMyGranola that they sent me to try out. My “Carrost ‘N’ Cake” mix sort of tasted like eggnog. Very yummy! 😀
I ended up turning the cereal mix into a 3-Minute Cookie. 😀
And then later eating 2 bowls of it with vanilla soy milk.
I cannot be trusted around cereal. 😳
We’re showing our apartment to another couple and then relaxing and catching up with American Idol.
P.S. I love celebrity gossip, so I have to ask: what the heck is going on with Heidi Montag?!? She looks TERRIBLE!!! Blah!
