Katie Has Left the Building

Well, we're finally out of the hotel, and on our own in the land of glass and schteel. We had such separation anxiety that we ended up staying a couple of extra days - who can leave Swiss hospitality? But alas, water (hot water too!), power, Internet, and TV are all set - so that left little reason to keep ordering room service.

Actually, you'd be surprised - we couldn't wait to get into a place with a kitchen, our own food, and start to do the all-important furniture shopping. As you can see, we started with the critical items first: the white leather couch and super cool mod lights. True, we still don't have a matress, but 48 hours later and we have just about all of the furniture: bedroom done, living room done, and officially have a very comfortable guest bedroom for all of you visitors out there. (as long as you're not afraid of heights - I got a little freaked out on the chaise lounge next tot he window earlier).

Furniture shopping is only slightly different than the states - there are most of the same stores, but it's usually cheaper and higher quality. There are also some fun ones - like "Western Furniture" and "u" (sign is on the installment plan). More pics as it comes together, but right nows, it's bed time

Congratulations! We can't wait to visit and be the first to spill something on your couch!

Looking forward to seeing you, even though our accommodations here will be a bit more "down to earth".
