A mere four months ago, I was a perfect little wifey. As a result, I currently live in the boring ‘burbs, far far away from all of the bars and attractive single men.
My apartment is gorgeous: high ceilings, faux fireplace, two stories, 1200 square feet. It is also the worst and loneliest of places. There are secret memories hiding in the drawers that I dare not open, wedding cards stuffed in the guest room closet, and a pile of framed pictures I took down from the wall.
In a little over one month, I am moving to the center of downtown. The thought makes me explode with happiness. This means that me and my posse of hot ladies will only have a four minute walk to our favorite bar. Watch out, Austin. Danger ahead.
In my spare time, I have been surfing my favorite home good sites and ordering new furniture to cleanse the aura of my apartment and remove all of the bad husband karma. Or at least that’s what I use as my excuse to buy pretty new things.
Here is my rough vision for the living/dining room, which will have a red accent wall (Eeee, I love accent walls!). I will be sure to post much cooler pictures once this actually becomes a reality.

Here is the more zen vision for the bedroom. Gray accent wall. You know, gotta set the mood.

Retail therapy is magical. It can even soothe the fact that there was a re-org at work today and I now have a new boss. Who happens to be my old boss. Who I like less than my current boss. Joyful times, indeed.
