Wednesday Wisdom 10.24.12

Another Wednesday is here already but we are all heading over the hump & are one step closer to the weekend. Enjoy our Wednesday Wisdom this week that gives you a little insight into our move to a new apartment this week!

√ DO become grown-ups and become fridge owners together. Our apartment didn’t come with a fridge, so we went out shopping to get ourselves one. When the boys were loading up the fridge in the truck in the back of the store, the two of us decided to drive around back to check out what they were doing. X DO NOT go into uncharted territories behind retail stores unless you want your car to be swarmed by alley cats and a skunk. Yuckkkkkkkk. X DO NOT try Charlotte’s refrigerator measuring technique. As we were shopping I looked over and Charlotte, in the middle of the store, is hugging (yes, I said hugging) a refrigerator. When I asked her what she was doing her response was “I’m hugging the fridge and then determining if I could hug the empty space in our kitchen the same way.” I then proceeded to ask an employee for a measuring tape…

 DO make priority lists when shopping for a new place. We’ve realized that we can’t afford our dream home and our apartment isn’t going to look like it belongs on anthropologie.com, but that’s okay. Five major priorities were (1) refrigerator (2) beds (3) couch (4) microwave (5) wine glasses. We’ve purchased all of those things, so we’re set at least for the time being!  DO have great friends who are willing to sacrifice their weekend & evenings to drive all over with a truck and move large heavy items  DO have pizza & beer at the end of the each night as a reward.

X DO NOT leave your purse at Chipotle and your phone at In N Out in the same day.

Have any wisdom for us today? Any Do’s or Don’ts you are experiencing?!
