Finally a few photos

We've spent a lot of time over the last week getting ourselves settled into the apartment. Here are a few photos that I took last weekend when our things were first loaded into the apartment. This should give you an idea of what we were dealing with! This first picture is our living room.

This picture is our dining room and the kitchen.

And this is our 2nd bedroom. What you can't see from this picture is that there's another row of boxes behind this one, and the huge closet is also packed floor to ceiling with boxes.
At this point, we've gotten most of the boxes unpacked and most of the furniture arranged. Shawn set up the fish tank today, so we'll finally put the fish back into their permanent home tomorrow. Since the weather was actually really nice today, after church we went downtown and spent some time at the Pike Market. We bought some fruit at one of the produce stands, and we also got ourselves two mini cheesecakes. The one on the left is Quadruple Chocolate, and the one on the right is Peanut Butter Chocolate. These are sold at a place called The Confectional. So good!

And finally, Shawn bought me a beautiful bouquet of fall flowers to "spruce up" the apartment a little bit. Most things you buy at the Pike Market really aren't very cheap, because it is a bit of a tourist trap. But this gorgeous bunch of flowers was only $5!
