Ali the Elf

At my second dance recital, I did a tap dance to a song called “Ellie the Elf.” Now the song is stuck in my head — Ellie the Elf, sittin’ on a shelf, full of mischief blah blahbitty blah… — but I’m singing Ali the Elf instead. I am officially on vacation until January 3, […]

Making Moving Manageable

I love alliteration. For those of you who are new (welcome!), I moved this week! But I didn’t just move into a new apartment—I moved into my boyfriend’s apartment, which has been both exciting and scary. Somehow the move also managed to be mostly stress-free. I had a few freak-outs in the very early stages—like […]

Move In = Success!

I’m officially roommates with ABS! We’ve had such a great day, and I promise a full report tomorrow. As for now, a bit more unpacking then out for some Halloween fun. Happy Weekend!

All My Bags Are Packed…

…I’m almost ready to go! Tonight is somewhat bittersweet. I’m so excited to be moving in with ABS tomorrow (OMG, tomorrow—When did that happen?!), but so many wonderful things have happened in my current apartment, and I’ll definitely miss my 2-year home here in Apartment 4A. A brief recap of today: run, work, write, Goodwill, […]

Moving Day is TOMORROW

Holy crap. I’m moving tomorrow. It seems like forever ago that ABS and I first discussed the option of moving in together. Now the day is almost here. Today will mark many “last” things. Like this morning was my “Last Weekday Morning Run on the Hudson.” Sad! It’s been my favorite way to wake up […]

Everything But the Furniture

Yup, the subject line says it all: Just about everything is up at the new apartment except my furniture (bed, dresser, desk, desk chair, couch and TV stand). My friend was so kind as to take two massive trips to ABS’s place today and we got everything packed into her car. Clothes, kitchen stuff, you […]

Getting There!

The packing process continues… I took a half day at work and after a lovely Chisel class at the gym, I came to my apartment to prepare for what I’ve dubbed tonight’s “mini move.” I’m hoping to get as much as possible into my friend’s 4-door sedan. We’ll see how it goes. Turns out, I […]

10 Reasons Today Was A Great Day

For some reason, at just 9:30 pm, I find myself completely exhausted. In honor of my sleepiness, a short (but sweet) list post! And now… 10 Reasons Today Was A Great Day: I had a good run. My alarm went off at 6 am, as usual, and my first thought was, “Wow, I have no […]

OK, I’m Calm…

…for now at least. Today was a good day. Any day that starts with a fast run is usually a good day, to be honest. Then it was off to work, where I had to play catch up. Three days out of the office = where did my morning go?! I love days that fly […]

Every Day Is A Good Day

I don’t have a whole lot to say tonight (for once!) so I’ll keep this short and simple: With the exception of two zits that seem to be taking over my entire face (No, I will not post photos of that, ew), life is pretty darn good these days. It’s so amazing to be able […]
