Sweet Little Sugar Scrub

I promised this 2 posts ago, I know. But it’s so simple and so nice, you’ll forgive me 🙂 I want to apologize for a lack of photos right off the bat, here- I was in a rush to make it during nap time and didn’t take any. But I’ll take some of the finished …

Apartment Update: Kitchen

The two rooms which saw the most progress in this latest binge-cleaning were undoubtedly the kitchen and bathroom. Since I promised photos of my fridge earlier, I may as well show you the goods, starting with the kitchen, as an unfortunate accident with my camera has lead to a lack of photos for the bathroom. …

One Room at a Time

It’s an odd thing, but I must say that right now, the part of the apartment I’m most satisfied with is our fridge. Not necessarily the inside; things haven’t quite settled in there just yet. But the outside is, I think, well-organized and cheery-looking (photos to follow later when I am less embarrassed about the …

Warm & Fuzzy

It is so nice having a real oven. Some of you will recall me complaining repeatedly about our apartment-sized stove in the old place…well, that’s all better now. The burners are large enough for me to fit any of my pans up there. I can make 2 pans of cookies at once (provided I rotate …

Rooting

To continue with the plant theme of the Transplanting post… Welcome back to Stardust. Some of you who stopped by between the Transplanting post and now may have seen the new look already. I must say, it’s much better than I’d anticipated a tweaked theme to come out- a little color adjustment, a photo of …

Transplanting

Last night in the Spartan Village apartment- and I have to say, I’m only a little sorry to see it go. Really, it’s more the attachment to the university and the part of the state I’ve lived my whole life in- where all the zip codes are 488XX -than to the apartment itself, or even …

21 Day Challenge: Days 6-10

Recap of where we’ve been so far: Junk Drawer Computer desk, Tupperware cabinet, (linen closet), under the kitchen sink Days 6-10 included the dresser drawers, the pantry, the coat closet, toys, and the laundry room, respectively. Now, to be fair, I don’t actually have three out of five of these things. No pantry, no kids …

21 Day Challenge: Days 2-5

Recap of where we’ve been already: Day 1: Junk Drawer Days 2-5 were the computer desk, the tupperware cabinet, the linen closet, and under the kitchen sink, respectively. The computer desk was the easy part; we have a small desk and we both use it, so there’s really not enough space for it to get …

Dinner Challenge

Since we’re on a stricter budget than previously, and both of us are now very aware of how much food we have in the apartment (mostly the canned goods- egads, the canned goods!), Ryan and I have issued ourselves a challenge to not go grocery shopping for a month. We decided this on the 18th, …
