my new apartment!

finally!! my apartment is ready and i'm living in it! i would like to say that it was due to my hard work, but that would be a complete lie. my mom and jana came up and did EVERYTHING. and i mean everything. i even tried to help, once, and was shooed away. they left this morning and it was VERY hard to say goodbye. i love those two so much! no offense jana, but i have to say it was especially hard hugging my mom goodbye. i thank God everyday for blessing me with such an amazing mom. my mom would do anything for anyone without a second thought. i would say more, but if you guys know me, and if you're reading this you probably do- after just that one sentence i'm sitting here typing and crying...in public. i'm such a mess! so...onto fun stuff! i present to you- Apt. 4A aka Joni & Jana's Extreme Home Makeover: Studio Apartment Edition...

my mom & jana found this restaurant in the south street seaport mall. i'm going to print/frame this picture and hang it above my kitchen table.

my mom re-covered the chairs to make the table the previous tenants left match. genius!
