In the meantime…

In the meantime…

As I mentioned in my last post, I left my job and am starting another. But in the meantime, I took a few days off to recharge my batteries. It was a busy few days full of getting little tasks done, spending time with friends and going on a big adventure (or what I call- … Continue reading

Go Knicks!

Go Knicks!

So I know this really awesome guy that gets me to do things I wouldn’t normally do…like go to a professional basketball game. Lord knows I’m a college basketball girl through and through but I’ve never been to a professional game. So being at Madison Square Garden for my first Knicks Game was kind of … Continue reading

While I’ve been away

While I’ve been away

Well, I’ve pulled a muscle in my back and have been confined to my bed. So there is no better time to start writing again right? Truthfully, it is the only way that I’ve stopped in the last couple of months. It has been a complete whirlwind. It definitely has not been an easy few … Continue reading

Back to bizniz

After a Christmas experience very different than years past, I’m back in New York. Though I never vocalized it pre-25th, I was nervous about Christmas this year. It was the first time not seeing my mom on Christmas ever, not going out to California for part of the holiday, and it was the shortest Christmas … Continue reading

Tarrytown

Tarrytown

One of the things I wanted to do on my long Thanksgiving weekend was get out of the city. I hadn’t left the city since I went to Spain 3 months ago, so I was ready for an escape. But with the short time frame, holiday crowds and wanting to be a little cheap- I … Continue reading

LES does the LES Food Tour

The Saturday before Sandy hit the Lower East Side super hard, I went on a Lower East Side Food Tour. It was delicioussssss. And thanks to The Skint it was half off and only $30!

Mother’s Bike Out

Mother’s Bike Out

Just has a lovely stay-cation with my mom that included a wonderful Broadway show, an amazingly shwanky dinner, and picking out makeup. The most beautiful portion of our stay-cation was an amazing bike ride around Central Park (woot woot Groupon!) It was so wonderful to see the colors changing and parts of the Park I … Continue reading

Into the North Woods

Into the North Woods

This morning I woke up early. Harlem was already alive outside so I decided to get out there. So I went for a walk. Next thing I knew, I was 25 blocks south and in Central Park. I found myself in the North Woods, an area I’d never been before. With awesome harmonies in my … Continue reading

Time to Disconnect

Tomorrow I’m heading to Europe for over a week. I’m incredibly unprepared. I’m going by myself.I couldn’t be less concerned. Wait. The event planner?? Completely unprepared? Yep. It’s weird. Really, I’m shocked how okay with it all I am. I mean, no doubt I will have a few minor freakouts. Probably tomorrow waiting for the … Continue reading

Peanut Butter FOR THE WIN.

Peanut Butter FOR THE WIN.

I’ve been wanting to go to Peanut Butter & Co. since I heard it existed. A place that is entirely peanut butter sandwiches= heaven. I first tried the various flavors of peanut butter at the New York Chocolate Show (white chocolate peanut butter, maple peanut butter and more!) This magnificent establishment is owned by the … Continue reading

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

A year ago today, my sweet friend Kerry dropped me off at the Indianapolis airport with some hugs and I was off to New York. I arrived completely turned around and completely exhausted. I can’t believe how much has changed since that day. Grant it, I’m still often turned around and almost always exhausted, but … Continue reading
