Moving day is approaching

It's finally happening: I'm moving into a two-bedroom apartment.

Um, this weekend actually. (I'd better start packing.)

New apartment, new neighborhood, new possibilities -- it's all very exciting! Here's a video Dave took when we fell in love with it:

Our apartment person says there's only 1 bathroom, but there are in fact 2.

For as much as I complain about it, the place I live right now isn't really that terrible. It's a River North highrise, so take that how you will.

Things I'll miss about my current apartment
  • The gorgeous view off our 51st floor balcony
  • The large bathroom
  • The large bedroom
  • Picking up my packages at the cleaners in the building
  • Sitting at the kitchen island while Dave cooks
  • The convenience of being in River North
  • Being able to take one of two express buses right up to my brother's
  • The pool

Things I will NOT miss about my current apartment
  • The River North tourists
  • The River North attitude problem
  • Wandering onto the Red Line only to end up in the thick of drunken Cubs fans
  • Waiting for 10 minutes just to get an elevator that goes to my floor
  • A super-tiny living room
  • Tons and tons of spiders/bugs on the windows
  • The hotel rooms across the hall, complete with loud visitors
  • The douchebags at the pool
  • The lure of Whole Foods

Things I'm looking forward to about my new place:
  • A neighborhood with trees (and Suz)
  • Easy access to Mana (and J)
  • Room for a dining room table and therefore dinner parties
  • A built-in wine rack in the kitchen
  • An entire laundry room
  • A fireplace
  • Pizza delivery from Piece

Move-in date is Sunday. Let's hope this apartment ends Dave's 10-year moving streak.

Sorry that I was MIA for a few days. I was traveling for work. Congratulations on the new pad. Very nice. For what it is worth, I hate heights and don't think I could handle living on the 51st floor!
