Greetings from Hoboken!

Hello everyone! I am writing to you from my new apartment in Hoboken! I moved in this past weekend and with the help of my amazing family and friends, the place is really starting to come together! I have a fully functional kitchen already stocked with food and beverages, a cozy couch, which I can’t wait to lounge on, and my bedroom is starting to come together. Not only have I enjoyed setting up my new home the past two days, I’ve also loved exploring my new neighborhood. I’ve already found some delicious eats and have tasted the best “mozz” in town! Today, I want share my move-in weekend with you through pictures…


My housewarming present from my sister – wine, bread and salt. I love her!


My empty bedroom at home…very strange

Fiore’s for lunch on Saturday to try out their “mozz”


My sandwich – ham, roasted peppers, and mozz – amazing! peppers were covered in garlic and the mozzarella was definitely the best I’ve ever had (it’s made fresh every day!)

The back of my door…starting to feel like home

That’s all for now! I absolutely love my new home and I can’t wait to continue to decorate and make it mine. I will definitely be posting more pictures in the coming weeks!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. Its the first week of March! And the time changes this weekend – I can’t wait for the days to be lighter for longer. Spring is right around the corner!

I can’t end this post without giving a huge birthday shout-out to my amazing dad! Happy Birthday, Dad! Thank you for all of your help this past month and all of your love & support the past 25 years. I love you! I hope you have a great day because you deserve it!


Sorry I’ve Been MIA!

Hi everyone! I apologize for being MIA the past few days. I’ve been busy getting myself acquainted with my new job and routine, and I’ll be honest, the commute is kicking my butt! I’ve been getting up at 5:00 am to catch the 6:34 train, getting home at 6:45 and have been in bed by 9:00/9:30. Basically, I’ve had enough time to shower, eat dinner and watch a 30 min tv show. I’ve wanted to blog every night after work, but I come home and feel like this…

Luckily, that will all change in a week when I move to Hoboken! My 4 hour commute will change to less than 2 for the day and it will give me time to blog again!

One up-sides of commuting is that I’ve had time to read again! I haven’t seriously sat down with a book in a couple of months because I’ve spent all of my free time blogging or working on projects. I now have 4 hours everyday to read and it’s been awesome. I started Ready Player One By Ernest Cline (published by Crown!) on Monday and am a little more than halfway through it. It’s a futuristic novel, which normally isn’t what I gravitate towards, but I’m really enjoying it. The storyline is entertaining and there’s suspense, which always pulls me in!


Aside from the exhausting commute, my first week at Random House went very well! I really like everything I’m doing so far and everyone is so nice and welcoming! I’m excited to be learning new things and to be challenged by something again. Since it was the first week, I’m still just dipping my toes in, but I’m looking forward to seeing what next week will bring!

I hope you all had a great week! Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? I’m spending today and tomorrow packing and doing last minute shopping because I’m moving next Saturday (eeeeek!!!!!)! This is all I have packed so far…


Yes, my calphalon bread pan and my JT cup from his Future Sex Love Show tour (you can all judge me because I’m judging myself right now). Clearly, these two things are what I’ve decided are most important in my life. I need to get busy (and reevaluate my priorities) today or else this will be all I have in my apartment. I have never moved before, so I’m feeling slightly incredibly overwhelmed by the whole process. On my list of kitchen items to pack are my stenciled napkins and the mug I made in my pottery class. They’re going to look awesome in my kitchen!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I apologize in advance if you don’t see another post from me until after March 2nd. I will do my best to try to pop on here and at least say hi!

Thanks for reading!
