Corey has been busy studying for finals for the last week, and I knew he was feeling super stressed, so after he finished his first final on Monday night I wanted to surprise him with a little something. I thought it would be nice to make some mulled wine for him to enjoy after hours of essay writing. When he walked in the door the house smelled amazing, candles were lit and it was the perfect way for him to unwind after his long day of work and final-taking. I used this simple and delicious recipe from fellow Amsterdam expat blogger, Jenn, and I highly recommend it!
We are so excited this amazing apartment is official ours! We move in September 1st (which won’t come soon enough)! It comes fully furnished, which is so great, although we have a bit of work to do in the bedrooms to make them our own. A few cosmetic things – new curtains, bedding, some pictures, etc should do the trick!
This is basically our dream Amsterdam apartment as it’s big, bright, has a great kitchen and the best part… It looks down on the sweetest little canal! We live on the most adorable street, and the second we walked into this place it felt like home. I can’t wait to show you all more photos once we move in and get settled! For now, here are a few to give you a little taste.
I really want to spruce up my desk at work. It’s just sort of blah and corporate and uninspiring. I spend the majority of every day in the office, so I figure investing in a little decor would be in my best interest. I’m loving these spaces and planning on picking up a few design ideas from them.
Happy Friday, friends! I am so very excited to go chop down our Christmas tree and decorate our apartment for the holidays this weekend! We’ve also got our first of many holiday parties tomorrow and I’m hoping to go see the movie Love and Other Drugs. Have you seen it?
What are you up to this weekend? I’d love to hear!
Here’s my inspiration for Christmas decor this year. Silver, gold, white and sparkly!
