Jersey Life: Apartment Tour

Well, I’m finally letting you have a tour of our apartment. It’s a humble size, but for the greater NYC area… quite a find, I have to say! My favorite parts of the apartment are the wooden floors, our view of the city with the Empire State Building lit up at night, and the new countertops. We still have decorating we want to do, but we can’t do it all at once.

Our kitchen. To get to our cabinets, I usually have to get on a chair.

Our view of the city… the picture doesn’t do it justice because I cropped it so much (you can still see the Empire State Building). I don’t want any crazy stalker to find my blog, figure out where we live from the photo, and then come murder us.

Our bed is in the living room. Oh… to have a bedroom… how nice that would be.

Our walk-in closet stuffed to the brim. Seriously, the storage on the sides go up to the ceiling. I also put in an extra tension rod below T.J.’s clothes for Eva’s clothes.Photo Sep 12, 12 52 40 PM

Not shown: Our bathroom( which currently needs a good cleaning so I’m not going to show it to you) and our entryway closet (filled entirely with storage).

So, there you have it. Our little Jersey City apartment. T.J. and I always talk about how when we move out of here, it’s going to feel like a mansion. But until then, we’re trying to make the most of this little Jersey life of ours!

    I love it so much! Your kitchen is awesome. And your new couch looks great! I SO wish I could’ve seen it last week. I still feel kind of sick about it. But you guys look like you’re getting nice and settled out there!
