It's been one hell of a week but we are finally settled into our new abode, nestled in between a pickle factory, metal bar and directly across from a Christmas decorations factory which i'm thrilled to say operates all year round. I think we hit the jackpot.
Yesterday was spent jumping from subway to thrift store to subway with heavy furniture under our arms and the occasional slice of pizza in our hands. Our final stop late last night was IKEA, this was my very first experience at the Swedish mega store and I was so darn impressed. Maybe its just the 50c hot dawgs and cinnamon buns talking but I never wanted to leave.
I'm pretty excited about our new room, it has to be the most unique sleeping situation i've ever encountered. Think Alpine Lodge meets childhood treehouse.... Slumber is much more enticing when you have to climb a steep wooden ladder to reach the bed.
