Housewarming!

Hey y'all!! Miss me much?? I miss y'all!!! I swear I'm going to get back on track... Well I moved! Not far I moved from one of ATL to the other. My apartment and it's slowly coming together. I swear I'm NEVER moving again!  I moved ALL BY MYSELF!!!! NO HELP >_< Granted I had no furniture but I accumulated a lot of sh!t since I moved to Atlanta last October.

CRIBS ATL

It's more like empty little apartment. I made that video about when I first moved in and so much has changed already. It's less pathetic now.

I really hate my voice...

This was my first "couch".... It's actually a Raised Areo Bed Deluxe with a king sized sheet over it.....


I thought that could work for a while... Then my back started killing me & I needed something to sit on..... So I went to the Salvation Army and cruised craigslist & came up emtpy. So I went to IKEA..... I found a little loveseat on sale for $199!!! 
Then I ended up in the "As Is" room.... No one told me about the "As Is" room!! It's basically full of floor 
models up to 70% off!!! I spied the Kivik Loveseat for $238!!! It's usually $379.

That's what it looked like naked at the store....
Best part is that it was already assembled!!!! No couch in a box to put together. All I had to do put the cover on it. Unfortunaley if an "As Is" peice of furniture doesn't have a cover on it at the time of purchase you can only get a white one for free. So I have a WHITE couch... Well see how long that lasts... I almost had to fight for my couch!!! People don't play in the As Is room. I thought I was gonna have to cut the two chicks trying to put my couch on their cart!! But I won!!!!

I didn't really think the whole couch plan out...... All I saw were discounts and dollar signs..... Luckily I drive a car with a lot of cargo space...With the help of an IKEA employee and a random kind stranger, I didn't really have a plan on how I was going to get the couch from my car to my apartment.. I figured that eventually someone useful would come around and I could ask for help. It's not heavy at all.  Just hard to do alone. I guess Karma can really be a b!tch.It was a beautiful & sunny day and I got about half way home and it started to pour. A huge BLACK cloud came out of nowhere..FML.... I was already in a bad driving situation because I hate driving with all my windows blocked then it rained so hard that traffic stopped on I-85... Thankfully it was only a random thunderstorm and I was able to call a friend to help me and I soaked it up with towels and my hair dryer and thank GOD that it doesn't smell like mildewy butt... I also Lysoled it to death to kill the "As Is" germs and stop any mold from part of it getting wet.

Bombchell says I'm an old lady b/c I have this huge fuzzy PURPLE mircofiber blanket over the couch. Since I don't have proper furniture I do everything on this couch, watch TV, nap, eat and even though its easy to clean I don't want to have to worry about it getting dirty. Besides it's soooo fuzzy and comfy!

I'm out for now! I fail because I've been drafting this entry for like two weeks...

Luv Y'all
   Mean It!
