Just Me and Two Dogs

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

It’s not always easy to be a pet owner. I love my dogs dearly, but sometimes there are just some places that I can’t take them. I’m definitely not allowed to bring them into certain stores, government buildings, or even some apartments. I definitely experienced the apartment problem when I was searching for a place to live. Every place that I found that looked good wouldn’t let me keep pets in their apartments, or wouldn’t let me keep more than one dog. It wasn’t until I found the Dallas North Apartments that I was able to get a place for my dogs.

The apartments where I live now are perfect for me, because they let residents keep two dogs. My dogs are pretty small and don’t make a lot of noise, so they aren’t a disturbance to the other residents. The other residents actually think my dogs are pretty cute. (more…)


My Sister and I Are Living Together Again

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

When my sister teased me about moving to Lewisville with her, I actually started thinking about it very seriously. I was in a rut, and I knew that I needed to get out of it. There was absolutely nothing holding me where I was, and I asked her if she wanted a roomie. She thought I was joking, and it took a lot to convince her that I was serious. She was so happy, and i was too. We started looking at two bedroom luxury apartments for rent in Lewisville TX, because neither one of us wanted to live in a cheap apartment.

We decided to look at apartment complexes on our own, then we would share with one another what we had found. When we compared lists, we both had to laugh as we had put Bluffs at Vista Ridge at the top spot. It is easy to see why, with everything that is offered there. (more…)


This is Where the Residents Come First

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

I know when a lot of people look at apartments in Temple Terrace, they are probably more concerned with what is in the apartment than what is on the property grounds. I am the opposite. I knew that any of the apartments that I was looking at was going to be nice. I also knew that not all of the property amenities would be equal, which is why I put the focus of my attention there. When I saw all that The Lodge at Hidden River has available to the people living there, I knew that I wanted to be included in with that group.

One of the most unexpected things that is also one of my favorites is the free gourmet coffee bar in the lounge area. (more…)


I Want to Spoil the Surprise

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Every year my wife tries to plan a surprise party for me, but I always figure out exactly what she’s going to do and get the drop on her. This year she tried to make it a little harder for me to figure out her plans by being more secretive. I looked at her social media accounts and noticed something interesting on Snapchat. I know everyone who my wife is following on Snapchat, but I didn’t recognize one particular account. I used Snapspy to hack into the account and find out if there was anything that would tell me about her plans.

In the Snapchat account, all I found was a few pictures, none of which made any sense. (more…)


Finding the Perfect Apartment is Still Possible

Monday, July 10th, 2017

I have a better place to live now

I was not really sure what I was looking for when I started my search for new Simpsonville apartments, but I knew that I would know instantly as soon as I saw the one that was for me. I was not able to go around and look at each complex in person, because there are just too many in the area. I came up with a game plan that would allow me to handpick a half dozen complexes that I would look at and choose from. Getting the list down to six was easy enough because I was able to use the internet to help me out with that.

I just did a search for the apartments that are close to where my husband works, because I did not want him having to deal with heavy traffic, especially in a new town. I work from home, so that was not an issue for me. (more…)


City Park View is Now My Home

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

I was so happy when I found out that I was able to move to Charlotte. I was born and raised there, and it had always been my goal to work my way back there as soon as I possibly could. To be honest, I thought it was going to take me much longer than what it did, but a position at one of the local colleges came open, and I knew that I would be the perfect candidate for it. I started looking at apartments near 28217 Charlotte NC even before I had my first interview, I was that confident that the job was going to be offered to me.

They must have thought that I was perfect for the job too, because I was hired just after one interview. I had already picked out where I wanted to move to. (more…)


The Three of Us Really Like Our Apartment at Overton Rise

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

We got married in college and work at the same company in the same office division. The only issue our work has is that they do not want either one of us to be the direct supervisor of the other. Fair enough. Things are great. We found a great place to live in Atlanta, the weather is superb and we like our neighbors. You can click here to see the Overton Rise apartment community to get an idea of what I am talking about. I mean this place even has a complimentary Starbucks coffee bar. How cool is that? I get my first cup before I even leave for work while the rest of the world has to pull off and go through a drive through and buy theirs.

Our kitchen is perfect with its stainless steel appliances and dark cabinets with the brushed metal hardware. (more…)


The Pictures of the Apartment Sold Me on It

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

A picture really does speak a thousand words. I needed to find a new home, so I looked online at apartments in San Antonio TX. This is a pretty big area, so I just focused on the ones that are within a close proximity to where I work. That still left quite a few, so I looked at the pictures for each one. If a complex did not have pictures, then I just crossed them off my list. As soon as I looked at the pictures of Woodbridge Apartments, I was sold on it.

There were pictures of all the rooms in the apartment, and I knew I wanted a similar apartment after seeing them. For instance, one of the pictures of the living room showed the couch against a wall, a coffee table in front of it, a fireplace at the opposite wall, and a sliding glass door with closed blinds.

I’ve Decided to Ditch My Old Place and Move into My Dad’s Nice Apartment

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

My dad had been living out of the country for many years. We saw each other from time to time, but he was busy taking care of his business over in China most of the time. He was coming back to the States, so I was so excited. He told me to start looking for Atlanta luxury apartments because he planned to live near me. I had wondered if he would move closer to me or live in another state, and it felt so good to know that he wanted to be closer to me. I got started looking for new places to tell him about right away.

I do all right when it comes to money, I have my own place, my own car, and I pay all my own bills. (more…)
