New Apartement and Idaho International Folk Dance Festival!

SO- today was a big day! I finally got all pictures and decor up and made my curtains and put THEM up. The curtains were a HUGE project simply because the wall that our window is on, is pretty much made of brick! So basically if you look closely the rod is a little to the right of the center of the window. Why? Because I made a billion holes in the wall until I found 3 spots that nails would go in far enough to keep the rod up. It was a nightmare. , it works alright I think. The pictures and videos of course don't do anything justice. I love my curtains, they don't look that amazing in the pictures but I really like them! I spent probably around 3 or 4 hours on them. Crazy huh? Just curtains. But I took careful time ironing before sewing and like measuring EVERYTHING and I really feel that they turned out beautifully! My picture collage thing is in there. I like it...I painted the frames and stuff. Anyway, I know it's not as cute as Amy's but it is still nice. For some reason I struggled with decorating this place. Patty, my mother-in-law, SPOILED us with a few house-warming gifts. She gave us the awesome rug in the living room as well as some rugs in our hallway. She is just too wonderful.

It's up to you to decide if I did a good job! If you don't like it though, don't tell me. If you DO like it, tell me!

Now, Idaho Folk Dance Festival. As I type I am listening to live country music outside my window. It is LOUD. For a few hours now there's been dancing/parade outside our apt. I guess you can tell from the pics what we see when we look out the window. It's pretty fun. There were lots of Asians and Europeans and Americans. I swear all of rexburg is on main street right now. It is PACKED! I put a pic of the street as well just to get an idea. Anyway- there are just a few pics because they were fun looking. They were all taken from our window. Love you ALL!

I love that your apt is down town. It must be so fun. I love your collage-the pictures are beautiful and the curtains are really cute. I couldn't see the videos though. Can anyone else see them, or is it just my computer??

I could see the videos, they were neat. Your apt is way cuter than I thought it would be, and your pics on the wall turned out nice. I liked your pics of the parade. Rexburg reminds me of waldport and yachats in the community aspect. I love you!!! I loved your post. This is so cool!!!
