new apartment, new city, new everything

on friday, may 15th, we began our move into our new apartment.
much unlike friday, june 13th, 2008.
i felt happier just knowing we weren't moving on friday the 13th again.
the wellington was fine, just don't ever live there.

the wellington was overpriced for what we got. management was awful, non responsive and impersonal. and it was inconvenient. we couldn't use trains like we wanted to.
but we had a balcony and a lovely green view. and we had love to keep us happy :) oh, and we had a lot of space.

but who needs space when you have love (& ikea)?

so we moved to washington.

i LOVE our new apartment. ben LOVES it. we love it.
we have our own washer/dryer combo (the new "green" appliance). our bedroom is green! we walk (not shuttle) to the metro. we live in a neighborhood, so we have a park nearby, eastern market is nearby, church is super close (starts at 10am not 3pm) and ice cream trucks visit our neighborhood (very essential part of summer)!the green room.who wants to see our toilet anyway??kitchenesquethis room still requires some movin' and shakin'. we definitely plan on painting that awful stripe. but that will probably be in a month or so (after our trip).our dining room... hehehe

and we are now official dcists with our dc driver's licenses and new tags.
although it was slightly traumatizing to see our utah dl go through the shredder :(mona (our car) didn't want to give up our utah tags. the screw is still stuck.

we love our city.
now all we need are visitors. any takers? :)
