condo progress: blinds!

our humble abode just got an upgrade: NEW BLINDS!!!

here’s an idea of what we were working with before:

old blinds

 standard, old, heavy, ugly curtains from when the building was originally built.  visually unappealing, and weighed down the room. not to mention years and years of built up dust. gross. “new blinds” were filed under the category of “things we’ll do after the wedding”. well, it’s after the wedding and we are checking things off left and right!

here’s a look at our new blinds!


my “girlcave”
it really opens up the room to have that much more window showing.  i love it!!!
and i guess there’s no way to gracefully transition from the topic of new blinds to the passing of steve jobs, so i’ll just make that awkward subject change regardless:
the world lost an incredible man yesterday.  a man who revolutionized the way we live our lives through technology, and who motivated us through his words…. i stumbled upon this quote on another blog awhile back.  i took a picture of it (on my iphone) because it really spoke to me and i wanted to keep it with me at all times:
“your time is limited, so don’t wast it living someone else’s life. don’t be trapped by dogma–which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.  don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.  and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.  they somehow already know what you truly want to become.  everything else is secondary.”
Rest In Peace Steve Jobs.


  1. Love your new blinds and I wish I had a girlcave!! :D
