Apparently the moving company misplaced one of our boxes and had to track it down before they could continue with the move. All of our belongings, … Continue reading A Couple Notes
It's official folks! We have a bed! Woohoo! Or, I should say, we have a mattress. After venturing to Furniture row a couple weeks ago, we picked out the mattress and the bed frame we want.
