Weekend Recap: Apartment Hunting

Annnnd it’s Monday again. Dangit!

My weekend was pretty fun, though it went by way too quickly (per usual). Friday night after work we had a summer boat bash on a yacht (crazyyyy) that was tons of fun.

Weekend Recap: Apartment HuntingBen was supposed to come, but he ended up not feeling well. πŸ™ I got home around 9 pm and hadn’t eaten yet, so I ordered some Postmates that was WAY overpriced.

Weekend Recap: Apartment HuntingSaturday we slept in a bit before heading over to Ben’s apartment for awhile, then to the grocery store. We started looking online at apartments with Ben’s current roommate, went and looked at a place that we all feel in love with and went to apply. Unfortunately we got the price wrong and it was $500/month MORE than was listed online so that went down the shoot quickly. The rest of the evening was spent playing with the puppy, watching Ben play video games and figuring out if we want to stay in Ben’s place or not.

Just for background – my lease is up in my (crappy) apartment on August 31 and so is Ben’s. Originally we had planned to stay in Ben’s apartment and his roommate would move out. I’m not in love with the area (close to transportation, but far away from other things like shopping, coffee, restaurants, groceries, etc.) so I’m not 100% in love with staying in the area. His place is okay, but if we can find something better we might look into it. However we only have a few more days to make that decision.

Sunday we slept in until 9ish, took Cora for a walk and then went and looked at an apartment (actually the same one we looked at on Saturday, just one-bedrooms this time) before leaving and knowing it just wasn’t the right place for us. We loved the location, but it was way too small and pricey. We walked from there to West Town Bakery so I could get some food (I had part of a BLT, fries and a coffee – nothing super great), grabbed Do-Rite donuts on the way back to the car and then headed back to Ben’s place to get Cora.

Weekend Recap: Apartment HuntingOnce home, Ben and I both grabbed our computers and started working since we hadn’t had any time to work yet. I started scheduling in social media posts for my client in Smarter Queue before hitting Padmapper.com again to look up more apartments. We sent in a few Β more emails before giving up for the day.

The rest of the afternoon was finishing up my website which is now live! I still have a few things I want to add to it and I’m sure it’ll be changing frequently, but I finally bit the bullet and got the bare necessities up. We celebrated with watching a documentary and cleaning up my apartment for the showings my leasing manager has tomorrow – wicked Sunday. πŸ™‚

What did you do this weekend?

      Thanks, lady! So stressful. It’s fun (because I love beautiful places) but more stress than we need right now so we decided to just stay in Ben’s place for another year. I’ll still have to move, but we won’t have to worry about moving while being in California next month PLUS it’s so expensive!

      Thank you for checking it out!!! ❀️

    Apartment hunting is the worst! And what jerks for posting a different price online. Did your landlord finally fix the gas in your apartment? Crossing my fingers that you guys find one soon! Cora looks like she is getting so big in that picture! πŸ™‚

      They did finally fix the gas … by turning off the furnace. Thankfully it’s summer so I don’t need it! That’ll be a problem for the next tenant, I guess.

      We actually decided to just stay in Ben’s apartment. While it isn’t as “beautiful” as I’d like and it’ll take some work to make it feel like home, it’s just too stressful to try to find an apartment AND move, especially because we’ll be in California over Sept. 1 (when our move is) so we’d have to pay someone to take care of the move for us. Plus, so much $$$$$$. She is getting huge!!!

    I hate moving. I’m in the smallest studio ever but its pretty cheap. Its so small that I know no man will ever consider moving in. Good luck!

      Ugh, it’s the WORST! I still have to move (into Ben’s place …) but it’s just down the street so it shouldn’t be “too” bad. Hahah, makes sense! My 1BR is basically a studio haha! πŸ™‚
