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. Our apartment building has a giant tree and so do most of the office buildings I walk by. It’s just so pretty! Last weekend Jon and I saw some of…

A Weekend in Savannah, Georgia – Part 2

Today I’m sharing the rest of my Savannah, Georgia trip! In case you missed it, you can check out my first day here. Our first morning in Savannah we went to the Little Duck Café for brunch and it was amazing! It was right next door to our hotel and I’d highly recommend it! It…

A Weekend in Savannah, Georgia – Part 1

Hi friends! I did lots of exploring in the south this weekend and am sharing part 1 with you today. We had such a great time and the weather was just as good! It was also nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Jon and I flew to Savannah very early…

Ed Sheeran Concert at MetLife

On Saturday Jon and I went to our first concert together. We saw Ed Sheeran play at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and it was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend that you see one of his shows if you like his songs, he’s so talented! I wasn’t always a huge fan of Ed…

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…

First Visit Back to Michigan: Part 1

It’s so weird to think that I’m visiting now when I come back home, but I was so excited to go back home to Michigan with Jon and celebrate the Fourth of July. I’ve been away for five weeks so far, the time has really flown by! We got up early and lifted before getting…

Our First Anniversary

Jon and I celebrated our one-year anniversary last Tuesday. He suggested that we make dinner together at the apartment so that we wouldn’t have to worry about other people sitting right on top of us. Sometimes it’s a little awkward how close the tables are at restaurants here, it’s like you’re on a double date….

A Weekend in NYC

I finally made it back to NYC for the first time since my Valentine’s Day Weekend. I planned this trip to give me something to look forward to during busy season. I took off Friday and then flew out at 1:45pm. My flight out was so easy and I didn’t have any delays. I worked…

Lyssy’s Eats: Shiro

Jon flew in to see me for Easter, so last Friday we had a much needed sushi date night. We hadn’t seen each other for about six weeks, and during that time we always talked about getting sushi, so needless to say we were excited. We went to Shiro in Novi. I have been there…

Valentine’s in the Big Apple

My trip to NYC started a little rocky as I realized I forgot my license at home. Luckily my dad was driving me, and my sister was able to bring my ID (thanks dad and Kris!). Luckily I made it to my gate right as my plane was boarding. I’ve never missed a flight and didn’t want…
