Flat Iron Building +Eataly + Shake Shack + Cupcakes by Melissa

One spot that Mike and I didn’t get to spend much time in was the flat iron area.  We literally did a few pit stops at some iconic locations but didn’t spend a lot time looking around or enjoying the scenary.  One big regret I have.  But that’s ok, we can put it on our…

Chelsea, Soho, and Chinatown

One of the most exciting reasons for me to go to NYC was to visit these two girls.  LOVE THEM TO DEATH.  We now all live in different states but it’s so nice to meet up for a weekend and feel like nothing has changed.  We caught up on all the months of not seeing…

NYC: Central Park

Getting to Manhattan from JFK and Back (transportation)

  When Markel and I planned our trip to NYC, I made it a point to research the city and transportation alternatives besides car service and taxis.  Strangely I am very weird about paying for taxis when subways are cheaper and just as convenient.  *shrug * So instead of taking a $60 taxi from JFK…

Weekend Recap

  This past weekend was INCREDIBLE.  I had absolutely NO plans and it was glorious.  I had originally saved it to help Markel’s parents move, bu tI wasn’t needed so I took FULL advantage.  Slept a lot, read magazines, did 7 loads of laundry, and just spent a lot of time alone.  LOVED IT.  After…

Freshman Orientation

On Monday, I looked outside my office window and saw this chaotic mass known as “freshman orientation”.  Every year I go down and collect all the free samples that the campus gives out to “welcome” its incoming class.  I like to believe that I’m young enough where I can pass for a wide-eyed, 18-year-old student….

Dahlias and Ikea

Aren’t these the prettiest flowers ever???  I got the Ikea vases for 79 cents each and the Dahlias were left over flowers from a wedding I went to this past weekend.  I love how these single flowers make such a big difference on my dining table.  They make the room super cheerful <3
