What’s Up: January 2019

It’s my first What’s Up of the year starting with my least favorite month of the year. January is the worst month because all the excitement of Christmas is gone and it’s cold! But my year is off to an amazing start, and Jon and I are getting out of the cold next weekend so…

2018 Recap – The Best Year Ever!

Happy New Year!! Maybe it’s just me, but I swear this year flew by so fast! I always like recapping and reflecting on the year, and then thinking about my goals and things I’m excited about in the next year. I used to do this in a very long journal entry, but now I’ve got…

Five Favorite Christmas Traditions

Hi friends! There are only 5 More days until Christmas!!! 🎄🎅🏻 I just love the anticipation of Christmas so much. Jon and I are flying to Michigan today where I will spend Christmas with my family.

Miracle on 9th Street – NYC Pop-Up Christmas Bar

First things first, I can’t believe we are a week away from Christmas!! Second unbelievable thing is that his weekend Jon and I actually went to the BAR!

Christmas in New York City – Bryant Park & Rockefeller Trees

I absolutely love how festive and cheery NYC is during Christmas! When we came back after Thanksgiving, the whole city had transformed into holiday cheer.

Living Room Update – Fall 2018

Hi Friends! I’ve finally got an apartment update for you all! It took us a while to figure out our furniture, and it’s such a relief to finally have everything delivered and settled. We started looking once we signed our lease for the new place, and it took about two months of online shopping and…

What’s Up: November

I know I say this every month, but October just flew by! The first half was a complete blur with my busy season, but the second half was great! I had a wonderful time in Boston and took some time off of work to recover. I’m so excited for all that’s to come the remainder…

Top 3 Poke Restaurants in NYC

Poke is a new concept to me I must admit. The easiest way to describe it is that it’s sushi in a bowl. I have only been eating sushi for about two years, so I was a little hesitant to try poké. I’m still a bit of a picky eater, but I’m so glad I…
