The Great Apartment Search

Niki and I must have looked at fifteen different apartment complexes in the Pocket neighborhood yesterday. Gretchen's property was starting to look like the nicest, cheapest one we would find. But just as we were ready to give up our search, we found a diamond in the rough.

Let me tell you about it:
  • Deluxe Garden Apartments
  • Single Story
  • 2 Bedroom - 1 1/2 Bath
  • Fireplace
  • Private Covered Parking
  • Swimming Pool
  • Private Patio
  • Washer / Dryer in Apartment
  • Refrigerator
  • Dishwasher
  • Walk-in Master Closet
  • 995 Sq. Ft.
Do you even realize how big that is? Most 2-bedroom apartments are around 840 sq ft. or so. And it's a single story, so no neighbors walking on my head. Plus it's in a nice neighborhood, and convenient to the freeway.

So I applied. Cross your fingers for me, or do a voodoo chant, or whatever you can to send me good vibes.


What better way to celebrate the Uno de Mayo than a trip to Ernesto's? I love that place. Best. Mexican. Ever. I enjoyed some south-of-the-border flavor with Chris and Anna. Yum.

I finally got hold of the lady from the apartment complex. She says it will take a couple days to do my application because it's rent time and all. Oh, the suspense!
