My new kitchen island

This weekend I had a new project for my apartment. I didn't think anyone would be in the mood to help me set it up on Saturday night when I brought the kitchen island home, but my stepdad, who I won't name because he doesn't want me to talk about him on my blog, was … Continue reading My new kitchen island

One year in my apartment

It has officially been one year since I moved into my own apartment. Well, owned by my parents right next to their house, but it's mine. This is the first time I have a kitchen all to myself and no, I haven't set anything on fire, at least not yet. I think that's a very … Continue reading One year in my apartment

Hello summer

Happy first official day of summer and beginning of hurricane season. I know the second one doesn't bring anyone any joy and summer is bitter sweet because it is so hot outside. Well, outside, inside, everywhere; it's even hot with air conditioning. We all knew the nice weather we had been having in Puerto Rico … Continue reading Hello summer

Finally got my entertainment center!

Last weekend I found one of the missing pieces for my apartment, the entertainment center. I wasn't really looking for it so desperately because I didn't know what I wanted and my TV was already hanging on the wall, but I did need somewhere to put the DVD and the cable connection. So I found … Continue reading Finally got my entertainment center!

I think I’m going to try gardening

I'm not much of a flowery girl and no flower we ever had in my house could ever survive more than a week, so I never even tried to plant anything or try to keep it alive. Now that we have a backyard, my stepdad took care of the gardening in the planter we have … Continue reading I think I’m going to try gardening

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe New Years Eve. I started the new year on the right foot doing small things like updating my calendar from December to January and changing my sheets. It's the little things that we do that make it all better. I haven't made any resolutions this year … Continue reading Happy 2019!

Housewarming

Last night, after four months, I finally had a proper house warming party in my  apartment. It wasn't a lot of people but it was a great excuse to see and get my friends from high school together again, at least some of them. We were so happy to see each other and started trying … Continue reading Housewarming

We’re still decorating

A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating

My dining room table!

Since I last told you about my apartment, I had just painted my bathroom door. I'm not sure but I think that was the last big thing I had done, besides cleaning. It was the last thing until yesterday when I finally got a dining room table! It's not that big, which is perfect because … Continue reading My dining room table!

Here we go again, now I’m a professional

Today brought back the memories and feelings of those long days of this past summer when we spent all day cleaning, painting and scraping all the paint we spilled on the floor. Not only was it just as hot as any of those summer days but there I was, painting again. This time it wasn't … Continue reading Here we go again, now I’m a professional

Painting and cooking

Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking

Survived week one

It doesn't end! I moved in exactly one week ago, last Friday and I just unpacked the last of my stuff; I think. One week to unpack everything! That's too much. But, unpacking doesn't mean everything is in their right place, it just means I don't have anymore boxes, but it's still a little messy. … Continue reading Survived week one

I’m home!!!

I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!

My bathroom is done!

This week, I waited anxiously as the plumbers and tile people worked to finish my bathroom. One day the finished the tiles, another they installed my shower, then my toilet and vanity. It took forever and finally today, they finished my faucet. We knew he would have it ready today so we were ready to … Continue reading My bathroom is done!

Now I have a bathroom

Like I mentioned in yesterday's post, the bathroom in my new apartment is not finished yet. We had all the pieces, but things started to move slow after the first tiles were placed on the walls of the shower and I was getting anxious. After the floor was also finished and nothing else happened I … Continue reading Now I have a bathroom
