Moving in Together

Matt and I have been together for over a year now and this new year we have decided to move in together! I know, huge step. But I’ve never felt more comfortable about anything before in my life. Here’s to my next life adventure!

Choosing an apartment did not take as long as I thought it would.  The whole packing and moving process will be stressful and exhausting but I’m still excited. We were able to narrow down the area and this past Saturday we went to about 4 different places to see what our options were.  We needed something that was close to both of our jobs. I no longer have a vehicle so I would need an easy way to get to work on time. We technically weren’t going to be able to move into our new place until mid march but we decided to go and look around and thankfully we did. Here are the floor plans we liked out of the 5 different complexes we went to look at.

Place 1:

This place was great, we saw 3 different floor plans but the two bedrooms were either out of our budget or not available in our move in date.  We liked one out of the three and since Matt currently lives in a studio apartment this was still an upgrade on space.

Place 2:

We automatically removed the 2nd complex we to visit and the 3rd one didn’t have any floor plans we liked. This floor plan is from the fourth complex we visited that day. They had a 2 bedroom that we liked, however it was on the edge of the price we were hoping to pay. I did have my heart set on a 2 bedroom but with our Mid-October move in date and price range we weren’t sure we would be able to find one in the area we wanted. This one was a great option, it had the space we were hoping for so it did make it to the running.

Place 3:

The 5th complex we visited was the one Matt currently lives in. We decided to leave them for last to see if they maybe had any good deals since Matt was already a tenant. Their 2 bedrooms were WAY too pricey so they showed us two of their one bedrooms, which again was an upgrade from a studio. I fell in love with this floor plan due to the huge bathroom. Plus, they would let us move in a whole month earlier. Not to mention certain application fees would be waived.

Matt and I went back upstairs after a long day of apartment hunting and decided to narrow it down to a few. We were left with these three floor plans from three different apartments. 1 and 3 were around the same price, 2 was way too pricey so it was eliminated based on that. It was down to 1 and 3, both were around the same space and  across the street from one another so the route to the train was the same.  After weighing the pros and cons Matt and I decided to go with #3! It would make moving easier and if you saw the bathroom you would agree with me too. I plan on doing an apartment tour once we have fully moved in and have gotten rid of all of the boxes. We get to move in early February and I cannon wait!

I haven’t been updating my blog nearly as often as I would like….BUT, I have been filming a lot of videos on my channel. Feel free to check it out. 🙂

Thanks for reading!

    Omg congrats! The layout of #3 looks great and spacious! I would love to have balcony for my plants but it’s probably not in my price range haha. Best of luck moving in! Keep us updated!

    @Kim, Thanks so much! I’m so excited. The balcony was a nice bonus. I hope to get some plants or patio furniture. I love having options. 😀

    KIMMYYYYY!!! omg. I’ve missed you and all. Catching up on all your blog posts and everything. I am alive and you probably guessed I was busy with my wedding stuff so that’s more or less what took up a crap tonne of my time 😆

    bUT BUT please please can I just say congratulations on moving in together 😍 I remember reading the post about your first date and when you first got to know each other. I’m so glad it’s still working out and you’re taking the next step. ❤️

    Nick and I also moved shortly before we got married, our apartment hunting wasn’t too difficult either. We only looked at a few apartments one morning but there was one our heart was really already set on and we pounced on it right away.

    No doubt you are busy with the move! Oh man I am so excited for you. We didn’t take any furniture with us so we bought new furniture and assembled it together. It took a really freakin’ long time, which is also why I guess you haven’t posted since you moved 😅

    Take care love 💗

    @Georgie, XD <3<3<3
    Yes! Moving took a lot of my time and I'm slowly getting back into blogging. But I've been vlogging pretty regularly. I've been having a lot of fun with it but I hope to figure out a schedule for my blog.

    Living with Matt has been so great! I look back on those first posts sometimes and just melt because of how close we are now. It just feels right. 🙂

    Thanks so much for checking in! It's so good to hear from you.
