Fall Bucket List

I absolutely love the holiday season, and it all starts with fall and Halloween. I love decorating the house all festive, it really puts me in the spirit. This is my first time being in the city for Halloween, so I’m sure it’ll be different. There aren’t cider mills and tailgating and porches with jack…

Financial District (Empty) Apartment Tour

Can’t think of anything better for my 100th post! 😀 🎉 We have been in our apartment for a few weeks now and absolutely love it! It’s not totally finished, but I wanted to share some pictures of before we moved in. The day that we went was very cloudy and overcast so these pictures…

Moving Day in NYC

I did it! I survived my first move in NYC! Prior to moving to NYC I’ve only moved one time in my life, and now I’ve moved twice in the last three months. Lucky for me my move to NYC was easy because I only had clothes and little things. This move to our new…

NYC – Hudson Yards Apartment Tour

I’ve been wanting to post an apartment tour for some time now, but our apartment was never ready.  We didn’t know where we were going to live (if we were moving/staying) until late July, so we didn’t want to buy new furniture and then risk it being damaged in a move. Now that we know…

Lyssy’s Eats: Asuka Sushi

Jon and I went out to sushi for my 25th birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint! We went to Asuka Sushi in Chelsea and it was delicious! It was also reasonably priced (similar to what we would pay in Michigan) and had a large selection. We started off with some drinks (we were also…

25 Life Lessons For My 25th Birthday

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that I’m 25! It always seemed like such an old age to me, yet here I am, ready to embrace it. Maybe now I’ll start saying you’re only as old as you feel, and age is just a number. I had such an amazing 24th year and I know my…

What’s Up: August

I feel like I was just on the plane back to Michigan writing my What’s Up: July post, where has the time gone?? I’ve been linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions: What I’m eating: I’ve been eating the same old…

NYC 2 Month Update

I can’t believe I’ve already been living in NYC for two months, time flies when you’re in the city that never sleeps!! I must admit, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like city life, but I’ve adjusted quicker than I thought. However, ask me again in the winter and I might say otherwise… Fair warning: this post…
