First Things First & a Giveaway!

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Since it is Tuesday I am back for another round of First Things First!  I also have a giveaway for you guys to celebrate the lovely Samantha's growing blog! 
First house or apartment on your own (either rented or owned, just away from your parents!)
My first official apartment that I rented on my own was during the summer between junior and senior year of college.  I moved in with my friends Allison, John and my college boyfriend.  We lived right down the street from Boston College and right on the train line, so obviously we thought we were wicked cool (even though living IN the actual city is where we should have been) and we had a blast with the place.  I think we had kegs there probably every weekend of the summer.  I had a really easy nannying job and rarely worked so I spent most of my summer tanning and drinking.  Definitely the slacker way to prepare for my senior year!
My 21st birthday at that wild house.  Like my hat?

Beer Olympics..since we spent out whole July watching the Summer Games!

Me and of my bridesmaids!
First room you decorated in it, or would like to decorate
The first room in my new house that I want to decorate will be my living room.  I want to get a new couch...but that is now probably going to be put on hold since we just found out we have to buy a washer and dryer...womp wompppp.  Baby steps.
First thing you bought for it, or would like to buy
My first big kid apartment purchase was my bed which Ross and I bought last year.  And now we have to buy a washer and dryer and I want to buy a fancy adult bed frame.  Besides that, we creep craigslist constantly for furniture items because we are poor. 
Link up with us!!!
And now check out the giveaway!  There is a ton of ad space up for grabs and a few other awesome items that I know ya'll will love!

  1. Craigslist is a great place to buy stuff for a house/apartment! I found a lot of stuff on there for cheap that was like brand new. :)

  2. First of all, I'm loving your first house details. My first big purchase was my bed too, a girl's gotta get her beauty sleep!

    And second of all for your contest -- my ultimate giveaway would be a car! How awesome would that be?

  3. oh man, I creep Craigslist all the time for cheap stuff to replace our even cheaper stuff, lol.
