MIA...only words

i haven't been posting lately....there's nothing to post about. STILL unpacking. i think we win the award for world's slowest unpackers/move-in-ers. a lot of it is just that we need to BUY things to put stuff in. and you know...pretty storage is not cheap. i caved and started buying sorta el cheap-o plastic bins. i really really wanted to stay away from them, but seriously...even those are tugging at my purse strings.

in other news....where oh where is our couch?!?!? seriously. nolan called today after we found out that mr. & mrs. lau's (haha!) couch is being delivered THIS SATURDAY. um, hellooo inspiration, our couch was on the same boat/ship/container. where is our couch?!?! so they tell nolan that the couch is on the island, but then proceeded to say "don't get mad now (hmmm....i guess a lot of other people are already mad?) but the next available delivery time for your area is september yadda yadda." WHAT??!?! so....we're waiting till september for our couch.

and....i have a sneaking suspicion that my "girl cave" is going to be more "ollie's room" than girlie lounge. for a little dog, he has so much stuff!

slowly but surely...

things are coming together.
slowly but surely,
boxes are dissapearing and more floor is visible!

this past weekend i went on cleaning & organizing mode. the closets are done, and we purchased some nice bins and things to actually have places to put things! as boxes get broken down, the fine soot/dust that came with all that building flies everywhere!

dry swiffer.
wet swiffer.

there has to be an easier way! AND i can still feel that soot on my feet! when will it end?!?!
i curse the floors and all that dust.

so here are some of the latest updates to the abode:

media console...
waiting for the glass door to be put in, and for the mess to be cleaned up.

my girl cave closet:

i get my own closet, because nolan kicked me out of the master bedroom closet...

linen closet:

i think we need more linens!
and my few anthropologie purchases:

sad the E is crooked...
