WILW #4 {thursday edition}

Hi everyone! 

I know I've been MIA this past week, but I have a good excuse. No, really! I do! 
The hubster and I are FINALLY moved into our first apartment together and loving every minute of our new life together. More details on that later, but for now I'm linking up (a day late) with Jamie for What I'm Loving Wednesday Thursday!



Today I'm loving...

*Our Crock-Pot! On Monday Josh requested jambalaya (his favorite meal), so we headed off to the commissary(grocery store in military lingo) after running a few extra errands before he went to work. It turned out deliciously!

*Our first apartment! It's even nicer than the model we saw when we originally looked at apartments and the neighborhood is fantastic. We're within walking distance of so many resources and I feel safe enough to be home alone while Josh is working. LOVE!

*How much my hubby has been home! These past few days have been unusually slow in Arlington, so Josh has been home early every afternoon. We've been taking advantage of our time together by watching movies while cuddling on our couch and taking walks.

*Our new stash of Ikea furnishings! I love Ikea. It's an addiction. But thankfully, Josh and I took a few trips to the Ikea nearby to grab a bed frame, a few bookshelves, and some picture frames. Everything looks great so far and fits our apartment really well. The only bad thing...they collect dust like crazy!

*Cleaning with Shaklee! I've made my cleaners with Basic H and have been using the All-Purpose cleaner religiously in our kitchen. I also LOVE the laundry detergent and fabric softener. Yay for having a non-toxic, but super clean home!


*Stomping on moving boxes, shoving them in the cardboard recycling bin down the block, and sliding the good boxes under our bed. It feels good to have empty boxes, full cabinets, and an organized home. Now if only I could finish unpacking that last pile of boxes...

*Gorgeous weather. It's been so nice out that we've been taking long walks around our neighborhood and leaving the windows open all day. Too bad D.C. summers are miserably humid. Oh well! I'll enjoy the weather we're having NOW.

*My hardworking hubby! This man is out the door by 5 almost every morning so that he can pay our bills and then he comes home to his wife begging him to help her put together the bookshelf that's too heavy for her to do by herself and he puts it together. What an awesome husband!

*Marriage Retreat this weekend! Josh is the driver for an event and he said I'm going with him. The perk? It's a marriage retreat! I'm so excited that we can go on this retreat (free of charge since Josh is the driver and it's military sponsored) and that I get to see Josh "in action." =)

I promise I'll be back soon with more details about our new life (like all of you are dying to know, haha!), but it might not be until next Wednesday, as we're obviously pretty busy this weekend and still have quite a bit of unpacking to do. I still love you all and can't wait to catch up on your blogs!
