Our New Home!

Salam alaikum! It has been a few weeks since I have posted anything because we have been busy moving and getting back into schedule.

I will admit, I absolutely love our new place, alhamdulilah. It is located at the end of a dead end road, so we are tucked away from everything with trees surrounding the apartments. We live on the top floor- the third. Imagine moving everything up 3 flights, my poor husband. His friends came to help him with moving the furniture, though we only had our bed set. We left our couches because we want to get new ones. The apartment is so spacious! There are two bedrooms and each bedroom has a very large closet, one is a complete walk in closet, the other is not as big. There is a laundry room that is very large- and we got a washer a dryer! Yeah! No more laundry mats! The kitchen is the perfect size, has a garbage disposal and a walk in pantry. There is a dining room, a living room, and the bathroom is absolutely perfect! We also have centeral heating and cooling!

Right now we do not have any couches, we are planning to have some Arabic couches custom made. We are just saving up for that right now. The high density foam is 120$ a piece and we need two pieces, so that is 240$. The fabric we chose is 8$ a yard, so altogether 56$. Labor is 103$. What is the most expensive are the rectangle Arabic pillows. We need 3 and each are 25$ a piece and the labor is more expensive then the couches! So we need to have about 700$ for the couches and pillows. Which, if you think about it, it's not really that expensive, we just do not have the money for it right at the moment.

Insha'allah I will get pictures posted one day once we get curtains hung up- we do not have a drill- and the couches made. So it may be a few months before I do.
