September (labor day weekend) my roommate and I traveled to the beautiful state of Idaho to visit my parents and Yellowstone National Park. The weather was lovely and although the trip was short definitely worth the drive.
The rest of September had us furiously packing and cleaning. Since both of us work on the north side of Vegas we decided that we needed to find someplace to live that would save us time and money on our commute. Through a serendipitous meeting with a friend we found a lovely condo just 2 miles from my new school. The place is a little bit smaller than our old apartment but it has an extra bedroom, 2 car garage and hard wood floors throughout.
The move was stressful but we ended up getting everything transferred over to the new address. (If you don't have the address please email me) I finally feel as though I am not living like a college student. Tiffany bought a new couch and bought an entertainment center (sorry Amber, I copied you), dining room table and chairs and hung my favorite artwork. I am liking the cleaner more modern feel of the new place. I am still working on the last few boxes in my bedroom else I would post more pictures.
It had been 5 years since I had moved last and I had forgotten how much stuff I had. Unpacking I have tried to let go of things I no longer use or need, but I realize I am still holding on to too many items. I have four bookshelves in my bedroom and they are straining to contain all of my books.

I think my favorite part of the new place is I can cook and watch tv at the same time. It has already saved me a lot of time.
