nesting, and fleeing the nest

whoa. this condo thing is getting serious! $5k has changed hands... with much more to come. my agent has advised me to get the utilities transferred. cam and i have selected a paint color for our bedroom (happy camper, a green). i'm seriously considering a really expensive bed. last weekend, cam and i rocked a series of home store outlets (the crate, the w-s, the pb, the restoration... you know the drill) AND an ikea, all in a matter of hours. we now own things like silverware, a hanging basket for produce, plates, hooks. and yet... friday we return to hatteras, the site of all things wonderful, a return to our cottage on the beach. a respite from faxing and transferring funds and signing documents. we're back monday, and wednesday, if all goes according to plan, i close on my own little piece of DC. our new home. crazy!

wow, that is an expensive bed! west elm (pb's hip stepchild also has a storage bed that is a bit cheaper ... but no fancy padded headboard.)

i cant wait to come visit.

YAY! and yeah, i like that west elm one, but i really want white... drama! any other places you'd look?

cb2.com has cool stuff .. have to pay for shipping tho ... (but if you end up having stuff delivered cause it wont fit in yr car, it could be about the same). also i LOVE my mitchell gold + bob williams couch. they actually make a lot of the furniture at c&b, pb, and restoration. but it can be cheaper getting it from them. (or not.)

Ah! That's so exciting! Also - that bed is far more expensive than my rent. Far far more expensive.

...and more than my mortgage, too! :) but seriously, that storage is going to come in handy, and i had an old money market fund i never pay attention to that happened to have just $60 less than the final cost of the bed... so i closed that bad boy and bought me some grown-up furniture. crazy!
