with colors, my husband lets me decide--due to a previous incident. *click here*
last weekend was the start of our slightly gentle migration to the new grown-up place. we are a little sad to be leaving astoria soon, but we're beginning to see ourselves in that new place.
part 2 of the move will probably happen midmay.
this is the last newlyweds' transition we would do (after putting it off for almost 2 years). we leased our first home already furnished, so we are just experiencing the whole furnitures/fixtures buying frenzy. okay, not so much the former, but more of the latter.
under normal circumstances, it would be a lot of fun to fix up an empty place. but it gets a little overwhelming while preparing for baby's arrival at the same time. financially, it really hurts. with my pregnancy incapacitating my earning abilities, it sucks big time to feel so helpless and useless.
on the other hand, i get to satisfy my nesting instincts. i picked some colors for the rooms, met and showed our contractor, robert the plumbing, electricals, & repainting to be done, and finally securing the work permit.
we got some very clean-looking lighting fixtures, that are (yes!) energy efficient and eco-friendly. and above all, the design is beautifully sexy and streamlined.
jerome gets animated whenever we look at furnitures. basically stuff we would buy...well, perhaps q3 or q4. lol. hmmm...maybe they'll go on sale.
mama garcia gave us some furnitures. we got a handsome mahogany dining set with 8 seats. with it is a cupboard. a small fridge to put treats and babyfood. we also got a yellow leather loveseat that used to belong to jerome's brother, joel to function as our official couch for now.
come saturday, some major bedroom pieces will be delivered. this is fun and exciting. i get to color one wall of our bedroom red. seriously.
