Matt and I are moving at the end of the month. Not too far, but to a much nicer place. Since we live in a pretty cramped and somewhat decrepit basement apartment, that could mean anything. But it actually is a pretty sweet deal. It's the top floor of a duplex in a nice little neighborhood with rather nice landlords. There are two bedrooms (which I would say is twice as many as we have now, but really zero times two is still zero), big windows, and a huge backyard. We'll have a little garden plot and an apple tree (hot dog!), and a deck leading to them. Best of all, though, is that we will have a washer and dryer inside the house. It's a dream come true, being able to do laundry whenever I want, and for free. Those are words I never thought I would say...
Also, in anticipation of the increased space and my increasing girth, we bought a king size mattress. We do not have a frame yet, but if we had $15,000 to throw down on one I would totally go for this:
(Which you can buy here if you do happen to have the cash. And if you do, what are you doing here?)
