I Have Officially Moved!

It has been a while since I last posted something on here. Like many of those who have moved, my place remained a pigsty for a handful of days. Rummaging through boxes for clothes to wear became a daily routine until the hubsters and I got tired of bumping into the scattered boxes. Now that we're settled, our quaint home needs furniture so I'm on the hunt for a suitable dining table for our place and more storage for our coats.

I found an inspirational piece that I now hang above my oven. I believe it's a saying that us women should live by. Being an avid admirer of the 50's, I knew I had to have it.

"I can only please one person per day. Today, I choose me."
The oil dispenser only cost me $0.99 at the 99 Cent Store!
The salt and pepper shakers were $1.30 from Ralphs!

As much as I'd like to be frugal, I don't purchase all my groceries at the 99 Cent Store. I only get toilet paper, kitchen towels, freezer bags, aluminum foil, paper plates, plastic cups and oil dispensers from there. Food, detergent and other items, I go to Ralphs, Alberstons or Fresh&Easy. Whenever my husband wants seafood, we go to a nearby Filipino store. It's either Arko or Seafood City for us.

This is a table that I fell in love with at Living Spaces and just HAD to buy!

"Love Kong Kumain" basically translates as "I love to eat". 
This was a gift from my eldest sister. Cute, huh?

Do you guys have any move-in stories to share? I'll be sharing a review with you this weekend so watch out for that! I'll catch up with you all soon, I promise! Thanks to the loyal followers!

  3. When we moved in to our current house about four years ago, I was SOOO excited to unpack and everything that even though half my room furniture wasn't there yet, I started decorating my room. =))

    I'm studying to be an Interior Designer so moving and unpacking are the things I live for. LOL

  5. Wow, what a coincidence. We just moved in to our newly finished house! There's still so many things to buy, since we have to start from scratch. (our house was burned to the ground last year and saved nothing from the fire) I'm currently on the hunt for a Living room set.

  6. I haven't seen a heater like that since I lived in Congrats on the new place =)
