A Beautiful Mess

The nest has relocated! On the first of the month, I packed up as much as I possibly could and headed towards my new "nest" for the year - a one-bedroom apartment in a beautiful city which offers the best of both worlds: flashy club life by night and artsy village by day.
I packed everything from my Queen size bed and mattress to my wire French dress mold (I couldn't forget her, now could I?), and a whole lotta little bits in between! I wanted to give you all a sneak peak of my new pad, and will post more pictures once EVERYTHING looks all fancy-shmancy. It's missing a certain something right now - colour, maybe? Nothing a bouquet of fresh flowers won't cure!
The apartment offers a ton of space, including 3 closets (although, and I'm sure you can all relate here, there is still not enough space or shelves for all my clothes, handbags and shoes).
I'm really looking forward to cooking my first meal in my brand spankin' new apartment!
Any special recipes out there you could share with me for my first night?

Well, when you're tired, a snack of crackers and cheese with fruit is always nice on the go. By the way, I came here through your mother's blog, and wrote her a comment, but cannot remember if I have a Blogger (I tried) password (I'm from Typepad), so couldn't get the comment to go through. Could you ask her if she might add Name/URL as you have? Would love to visit her again...
