apartment tour 2013

by Lauren on August 26, 2013

We are officially settled into our new apartment and are enjoying our new space. Its been a blast  to entertain, our place has now become known as the place for friends to come over for dinner or sit out on the deck and enjoy the view. I have been continually decorating our apartment and it is finally at a place where I want to share it on CFG. So come on in and welcome!






























Hope you like, It has become quite homey. I am exited to stay in one place for more than a year since in College I ended up moving almost every semester (dorms…sorority…house) so it will be nice to finally settle somewhere. Obviously, it will be a work in progress but I am really happy with how it turned out.

love, lo


happy weekend.

We made it to the weekend! I most definitely plan on sleeping in, drinking coffee in bed and partaking in our brunch tradition. Mike and I have made it a new tradition to sleep in on saturday and cook brunch for each other. We sit around the table reading our newspapers (him) and blogs (me). Its these little moments that I look forward to all week and I feel like they ground me after a crazy week.


What are your plans for the weekend? Mike and I ordered take out tonight and watched the new show, Orange is the New Black. I still don’t know how I feel about the new show, all I know is it makes me definitely not want to go to jail. I also have a coffee date tomorrow and then my cousins baptism on Sunday. A fairly low key weekend which is exactly what I need.


Some fun posts from around the web:

I’m back and I promise I haven’t forgotten about you!  Life is settling down just a bit and I feel like I finally have the time to get back into my first love, blogging.  With all of life’s changes this past year (moving, marriage, new job…) blogging has been the one thing that has kept me grounded and motivated. Although I haven’t written much, I have been keeping current on my blog roll.

CFG is headed for some fun fresh posts  in the next few months:
