I found my Vegas apartment!

Happy Monday and Happy October! I managed to write 2 blog posts last week. I'm shooting for 4 this week, so cross your fingers.

I would normally do a weekend wrap-up on a Monday post but I didn't really do anything productive this weekend. I did gamble for the first time since being in Vegas Friday night and "played craps" for the first time in my life.

I use quote marks because I really had no idea what I was doing. I just rolled the dice and somehow ended up making $200. But reaalllllly, I only profited $100 because I lost $100 playing roulette before I lost my craps virginity. All I know about craps, I learned from Friends. Remember when they went to Vegas? I loved that episode.

So, in place of a weekend wrap-up, today I tell you about my new apt.

Right now I'm living with my BFF Kristina and her hubs, Josh. If you recall, I was in Vegas in Feb for their wedding and last October for her bachelorette party.

The entire wedding party.
This is their pup, Maxwell. I miss Bear, so Max is my new buddy for now. I bet Bear has already forgotten who I was. Sad face.

Maxwell wearing my Stella and Dot pearls. He's not pleased.
The lease on my townhouse in Dallas isn't up until the end of October, so Kristina and Josh have been kind enough to let me stay with them until then so that I don't have to pay two rents at once.

Last Saturday Kristina and I went apartment hunting and I found the one! I move in at the end of October and I'm very excited about decorating a new place and getting settled in Vegas. I still can't believe that I legit live in Las Vegas.


Here is my floorplan. The only difference in my apartment and this 3-D rendering is that the wood floors extend into the dining room and that closet you see to the left of the living room is actually a staircase that leads down to my front door.

I decided on this apartment because it had a fully upgraded kitchen:

But the main selling point for me was an attached garage. I need it for storage and its a good safety feature too. I don't have to worry about walking to my door late night. I can just pull into my garage.

There she is. Can't wait to get settled and to start having visitors!

  3. looks like an amazing apartment! i just got back from a vegas trip a few weeks ago, and i played craps for the first time too! i still don't really know how to play, but i learned how to say "throw me a yo!". it sounds cool, only costs $1, and i think it means betting on getting 11? anyways, some guy told me to say it, and i started a trend at the table haha

  4. You should know that if that apartment were located in San Francisco, it would probably cost $3k per month. OMFG.

    I can't wait to sleep on that couch!!!

    Bear has not forgotten you. He misses you dearly. My dad's dogs get so excited when I come home--they won't leave me alone. They know us :)

    So psyched for your new place and can't wait to see you both in SF and LV so soon!

  18. Hey fellow Vegas girl! Craps is hard to get the hang of, but they definitely pay out well once you figure them out! What area of town are you going to be living in? i live up on the northwest side and love it!

  35. Looks like a great place to live. When will you be ready for visitors?!

    Isn't moving the biggest pain the ass? We are moving (just to another part of the city) at the end of this month and I am already overwhelmed. Moving and packing and having a crawling baby...not a good mix.

    Hope you are starting to get settled and feel at home. We missed you in bloggyland!

  36. LOVE IT!! Still can't believe you're living there either! I heard Twilight tickets went on sale the other day and I may have cried a little. We're seriously going to have to Facetime during the entire thing (Wine in-hand, obvi).
