Lazy Monday

Monday, October 9, 2017

Saturday night I got text messages from my coworkers telling me that we had Monday off work for Columbus day. I was like, "what an amazing and unexpected surprise!!!!" Long weekends are my favorite, especially when you least expect them. My bestie Naia (cat pictured in the above) was another unexpected surprise that happened to our apartment earlier this year. She's been a really fun addition to our roommate family. This weekend Naia and I have been spending lots of time together, hanging out and binge watching Orange is the New Black. She is so cute and brings us a lot of happiness and laughs! She isn't the most cuddly animal and does not like being picked up... but she has these really funny quirks that we love so much. 

One of Naia's favorite spots in the house to hang out (cat life...lounging all day) is by the kitchen window. Not sure what she looks at every morning but she sure does love that spot. 

This Columbus day I am taking a personal day to myself. I am going to keep binge watching Orange is the New Black (won't feel bad about it), work out, go grocery shopping at Trader Joes and cook something nice for dinner. It's the little things right?

Merakia

Sunday, October 8, 2017




Thursday night my friend Amy and I met up for a little catch up sesh. It had been a minute since we last saw each other! There was lots to talk about. We stumbled on this ADORABLE new restaurant in Flatiron area. I am starting to realize that Flatiron has a lot of offer in terms of restaurants. We sipped on cocktails and ate delicious appetizers and we were thankful that yet again made it through another work week! 

I love to spend my free time creating memorable life experiences. I know that is a broad term, because life experiences can literally mean anything. But to be more specific, I mean I like to spend my free time doing anything else but sit on the couch and watch tv. Now, believe me I think tv is great and relaxing and necessary but it is difficult for me to spend a chunk of my time sitting at home!! Especially when we only have weeks left of nice weather. Especially living in New York there is SO much to do and so many places to go. I know tourists come and want to see all the site seeing spots...but truly the best things about New York are the food and night life. The best of the best is here in the city and it is a shame if you don't take advantage.

Cape May

Tuesday, October 3, 2017



This weekend my mom and I took a 3 hour road trip to Cape May in New Jersey. It was very nice to get away from the city. Outside of the city is quiet and peaceful and it was good to have a change of pace. My mom and I rode bikes, went to the beach and hung out! We had yummy seafood and walked around a very cute town with unique shops and happened upon a festive street festival going on.

 I ordered a chai tea latte for the first time this fall. It was so warm and yummy! It reminded me of why I love this time of year so much, not just because I love chai tea but because October has a really good feeling that comes with it. 

I miss the warm summer days but I really am ready to embrace fall and all the festivities that come along with it :)
