from this to that

The layout of the rooms in our new apartment is quite similar to our apartment in Charleston. This means two things: 1) the placement of the wall decor is almost exactly the same and 2) I could never get lost in our new apartment! 
side note: I couldn't get lost in it anyways since city life means downsizing life means tiny apartment life, but we'll pretend it's because the rooms are similar. 

But really, when I'm saying the placement of the wall decor is almost exactly the same what I really mean is the placement of the wall decor IS EXACTLY, 100%, no doubt the same. 
What you can't see is that the end tables switched sides. So there. And our bed is now on risers, dorm room style. This means we are now at least 5 inches higher. #royalty. 
I can decorate differently, okay? You don't see the Merry Christmas sign up in these Texas pictures, do you? Mmhm.

Well crap, I didn't realize how creepily crazily twinsies it looked until I edited these pictures together. But as yo mama (or someone...) says, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Meaning, if your wall decor works as is, then definitely don't change it when you move.  

One thing that is different, the handle to flush the toilet is on the left side of the toilet. If I had a nickel for every time I've reached to the right to flush then...I would be swimming so deep in nickels that I wouldn't even be able to see the toilet, much less which side the handle is on.

A second thing that is different, Central freaking Time. I loathe Central Time. I am such an Eastern Time snob. Is that a thing? I just made it a thing. To me, traveling from Eastern to Central and back and forth is much worse than traveling anywhere with any kind of jet lag. I cannot get used to it. I can't! Ever! I don't care how long we stay in Texas I will never be used to it! <this is me not being dramatic because gag, Central Time. My shows now come on at different times. My alarm for my medicine is now a hour earlier. My internal clock wakes me up at an ungodly hour here in the central time land. When my friends post things on Facebook I never know if I'm seeing the time in Central Time or Eastern Time. 

MY LIFE in Central Time IS HARD.

To cope with these rather difficult toilet handle and time change changes I am going to go sit on my couch, under my forever-the-same-decorated floating shelf, and stare at my definitely-decorated-the-same cube shelves. Change is good for you, but sometimes you just need to look up and see your dang pictures in the same dang places.

i have been in my house 3 years and you have way way more decorations than me. I'm jealous.

I definitely agree with the "not broke, don't fix it" mantra. Maybe it's because I'm horrible at decorating, and once everything is set, I'm happy, but who knows. I should have hired you to decorate my apartment before you left - i love that shelf with all of the different frames!

It looked great then and it looks great now! :) Better than my home of 4+ years lol! I would hate changing time zones, Eastern Time FTW!

this is a hilarious post! if it aint broke, don't fix it - love it. i also love your decorations and your couch! i'm on eastern time but i always have to ask my husband 'so, if it says 8 pacific and 9 central, what time is it on here?' or whatever. i get confused easily, because where i'm from we don't have names for our timezones lol

I call that the biggest win of moving ever! Being able to set things up the way they were is awesome.

I hate things like the toilet handle moving... whyyyy isn't that the same everywhere.

Also, now that your life is in Central Time, YOU'RE CLOSER TO ME! So you could come visit and stay in Central time! hahaha!

Veronica Lee Burns said...

haha this is hilarious! I've never thought about having to adjust to a different time zone like that when you move...I love central but this is where I've always lived! haha

The Southern Thing said...

I like your decor! I would probably do mine the same as now too!

Kayla MKOY said...

Shoot I hadn't even thought about the fact that you'd have to change time zones. YUCK! ;) girl. How is it that your BRAND new place looks a million times better than mine and we've been here 2 years?! Ah. You've motivated me. Gotta get on it!!! ;)
