Psyche, it’s been almost a year since I’ve moved to B-town (sounds wrong), and I still haven’t fulfilled peeps’ requests to see our digs!
WELCOME TO CRIBS, NORN IRON EDITION
First of all, let’s set the scene. We live in East Belfast, also known as Heart of Orangeness™. Here’s our street, with a beautiful Irish double rainbow!
As I mentioned in a previous post, we also got new doors recently — our old ones were Jankfest 2015, with wood so cracked and swole diesel you had to throw your whole body weight against them in order to get them closed. Check out the front view now! Balllllllinnnn
When you walk through the entryway, to your left is our cozy living room. Matt is so proud of the little console he built under the TV. If you ever come to stay, make sure you fawn over it.
After walking through the living room, you get to our kitchen and bathroom. Fun fact: Matt and I chose every aspect of our bathroom, from the tiles to the shower, toilet and sink, in less than 10 minutes.
Where the magic happens. I was skeptical at first about the ultra-modern stovetop, but now I loff.
Worst bathroom photograph evar, but it’s such a small room that I can’t get a good vantage point. You probs didn’t want to see the toilet anyway. JOKES we just go in a shallow trench in the backyard.
This backyard pic was taken just before our 4th of July extravaganza last year. I’m sure you’re wondering if we fly our fancy, plastic flags all year round, but I’m sorry to say that they only grace East Belfast on special occasions. I don’t even know who I am anymore.
Anywho, that’s the entirety of the downstairs. Shall we TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL?!?!!!!!1!!1!
Upstairs is da master bedroom, resplendent with our favorite Japanese characters. PS, literally everything in our house is from IKEA. Matt is basically Edward Norton in Fight Club.
Across the hall from our bedroom is the office/Sweet Jams Room/Matt’s Hidey Hole.
Lastly, we have the guest bedroom/Lilly’s Womyn Room. I needed somewhere to put all of my feminine trappings when I moved in, and Matt lovingly installed those shelves to hold my lotions, potions, bedazzlements and trinkets. What a guy!
