i've mentioned before here on the plum that i'm in the market to purchase a home.
well guess what?
i bought one!!
me, alexa harriet marinos, me, permanent renter, me, unable to make a decision, me, the most expensive thing i own is my chloe handbag, ME.
i close in early october on my newish (built in '06) townhouse in the detroit shoreway neighborhood and i'm so flippin' excited to move in i can't even handle it.
it's everything i want - 3 floors, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a balcony off my kitchen on the second floor and a big (for the city) fenced in backyard with a cool trellis thingy. unfortunately, the kitchen doesn't have granite counter tops but i'm having them installed, obvy.
here's a little peak at my new living/dining room with the current owners furniture and whatnot in it....
i can't wait to show you guys what i do with the place!
my thoughts have turned to decorating, buying pieces, buying art, planning a housewarming party, and thinking about the first meal i'm going to cook in the kitchen.
i am going to miss my apartment in bridgeview a little bit though, it has been my home for almost 5 years after all. i'm ptobably going to miss being able to walk to constantino's market the most though.
one things i won't miss is brasa, the brazilian steakhouse that's located on the ground floor of my apartment building. i'm not going to miss it because it's horrible but because in all the years that i've spent living in cleveland in this building and all the restaurants and bars i frequent in my fair city i've never stepped foot in brasa.
never. stepped. foot. into a restaurant i've shared a building with for almost 5 years and walked past thousands of times.... there's something wrong with that.
before i move in a few weeks i WILL go to brasa steakhouse - FACT.
now if you'll excuse me i have a few more design websites peruse.
