I actually prefer the phrase "between jobs" since that is much more accurate. Today is August 1st, which means I officially no longer work for Children's National and I have 29 days until my new job starts at A.I. duPont Children's Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware.

I'll be writing about this a lot over the next month. Who would have thought after two years of marriage I'd be moving into my own 1 bedroom apartment for the first time in my life. I've never really lived alone, or even in an apartment with friends - it went parents, dorm (4 years), Micheal.

I'm overwhelmed by all the things I need to do, the stuff I need to buy, and the ultimate reality that on Sunday the 28th Micheal will drive from Wilmington to Silver Spring and then it'll just be me and Kali....

So what do we do when we're feeling overwhelmed?? We make lists and a "moving to Delaware" binder and avoid the inevitable emotional stuff like the healthy psychologist that I am!

I've already started shopping for bed linens to try and decide what "motif" I want for the bedroom. I can't decide between a more bold/whimsical design or a classy, more feminine design.

Shopping at BB&B this weekend I found a few that I like.

I was immediately drawn to this when I saw it - I think it's beautiful and has such a great color palate for coordinating the rest of the bedroom.

However this quilt (not the pillows) I thought looked really classic and I could create a really rich feminine look which might be fun and different for me - deep purple sheets, love.

These two guys are on clearance and I like both of the patterns and color combos as well (and the price!)

Alright, gotta get to work. My first job is to get all my work clothes dry cleaned, purge some old pieces, and ready to go since I don't have to wear them this month! Woo!

I vote gray/yellow clearance set... Actually I may need to go buy this for myself.... :)

Thanks for the vote Mia! :) That was a new one that I found today while searching for the pics of the others that I saw at the store. I'm doing some grey/turquoise/yellow in the living room too so I am also leaning that way!

The set on top is full of happy colors. I would choose that one as an emotional boost..but I think they are all very pretty. Hope you love the new job!
