A New Set

"A new set?" you're asking yourself. "What does that crazy chick Jenn mean now?"

You guys know I shared my exciting news with you last week that MG and I have decided to move in together once my lease is up (or slightly beforehand...the sooner to get away from psycho roommate, the better!)  When the whole topic came up, MG had mentioned that he'd been thinking about it for a while (which was, of course, nice to hear). I had no idea HOW much he had been thinking about it because once we settled on moving in together, he had all kinds of questions and thoughts about what to do with furniture and different spaces. And, I thought that I  had been thinking about it!

We decided pretty much right away that we were going to purchase a whole new bedroom set together since we would need more storage space, and having updated things would be nice. Our first "together" purchase! Well, MG started looking the next morning after we made the decision (excited much?? :) and found some good choices, and since it was kinda icky weather out this weekend, we went to take a look.

The first place we stopped at, we found a set that we really liked with a really great deal. So.....we bought it! (We waste no time, I tell you!) It's a really nice, dark brown set. The bed frame has drawers underneath (more storage!!) and we've already figured out where we're going to put everything! It's getting delivered next Saturday and I can't wait! I snapped some photos with my camera phone of what we got:

Not the best of pics....my camera did some weird green tint, but at least you can see MY nightstand (I bargained with MG to let me have this one from the set, teehee)

My chest of drawers (and maybe one or two for MG, hehe)
Ahhh, look at all of the space to put knock knacks and things on (shh, don't tell MG!) :)

Our "media" chest....the color on this dresser is actually darker but with the flash on my camera it came out looking lighter brown than it is.
Will be the perfect spot for that 32" tv I just bought in March!
The headboard....kind of a cool design to it.

So this is our first big purchase together....and I'm really excited about it (could you tell?? :)
What do you think of the set? (Tell me you like it, cuz it's too late to take it back! hehe)

MG and I went out on Friday with a group of friends, some of which knew that we were moving in, and others who didn't. MG brought it up to his friends who didn't know, and called his parents this weekend to fill them in on the developments. Both his and my parents, and our close friends are all excited for us. Everyone basically said "We kind of figured you guys would!"

I've gotta say, it's nice to have a guy who is just as excited about everything as I am. Hearing him share with people about everything, making plans and giving ideas he's thought about, makes me feel good that he's in it as much as I am. It's quite the change from my other relationship where, when we broke up, his parents didn't even know that he had been planning on having me move in. I feel lucky to have such a great guy in my life! (it's about dang time!!!) haha

Sending out a quick shout out to my friends and family who have shown and given their overwhelming support and love in this next big step! Love you all! *hugs*

Happy Monday!
