Since beginning the hunt for a new place, we've put in an application for two flats. We found out while we were in Puerto Rico on our honeymoon that we didn't get the first place. So it was back to scouring Craigslist for us. Wednesday night we had dinner over at our friends' place and we were talking about our dream apartment - what we jokingly call "The Jesus Apartment." (Our current place was "The Moses Apartment.")

After we got home, a candidate for "The Jesus Apartment" appeared on Craigslist. It didn't stay there long, like any almost too good to be true place in The Mission, demand far outweighs supply. This time we were lucky enough to at least be among the group who'd be able to view and to potentially apply. (We'd missed two other places by less than ten minutes.)

The place has a few flaws. There's no dishwasher. There are no granite or stone countertops; they're formica. There are no period cabinets in the kitchen. There's no tile floor in the kitchen or mudroom; it's linoleum. There are no double pane windows. For these flaws, we've nicknamed the flat, "The Moses Apartment Version 2.0."

Here's a tour of the flat. Keep your fingers and toes crossed we get it. (We need all the luck we can get, another applicant offered to pay more than the listed rent.)

Hope you're having a great holiday weekend!

Bon Apetit!
