Hey friends, how was your week? Mine presumably never wanted it to be Friday -  which made for the longest. week. ever. The bright side? We're finishing up moving and going to be in the new apartment for good by the end of the weekend - woohoo! My arms have gotten a good work out this past week and in need of a little rest come Sunday. Enjoy your weekend, grab a cup of coffee, and visit these fun links from around the web . . .

A collective wishlist that can be equal parts lust-worthy and excellent Christmas gifts - Mom, are you still reading my blog??? - I promise I forgive you for breaking my crock pot : ). Which is why this weeks current cravings are mixed of fall goodies and fun accessories for the new apartment!

Weekend Roundup

This weekend . . .
+ Michelle and I started moving into our apartment in the city
+ Got a taste of walking from our apartment to the subway in the rain - yay city life!
+ Met up with an old friend at The Ainsworth for the Alabama game
+ Took a little road trip to Thompson Speedway in upstate Connecticut.
Remember this guy from college? He's living in the city for a few months planting churches.

Who knew there are rednecks in the north? Haha, but seriously. Michelle and I had a fun day watching her Dad's team and other races all afternoon.

Happy Weekend!

This week has been very eventful - Michelle and I signed the lease for our New York apartment! We are going to be slowly moving in the next couple of weekends. I can't wait to explore our new neighborhood and share with everyone. This weekends challenge - find a bed and dresser. Hope you all have a great weekend and here are some fun posts from around the web . . . .

Weekend Roundup

This weekend I . . .

+ Experienced my first Octoberfest at Zody's 19th Hole. Complete with sausage, sauerkraut, and Pierogi (aka Polish potato ravioli goodness)

+ Ventured up to New Haven to watch a field hockey game. I have only played a few times years and years ago in P.E. class - the sport was fun to watch, but so many darn rules to keep up with!

+ Sat around a fire pit and watched the Alabama game - Roll Tide!

+ Had a successful shopping trip with the purchase of these fun riding boots.

Happy Weekend!

What a week, eh? It felt like a manic Monday every day this week  - so Friday, you're looking real good today. The bright side of the week?  Having my first bite of a Cronut - not the Cronut, but a mighty tasty one.
Have any fun plans for the weekend? I'll be venturing out in Stamford and fingers crossed that the rain permits for a field hockey game in New Haven Saturday. Enjoy your weekend and here are a few posts from around the web to keep you company until next week . . .

Happy Weekend!

Hey friends! How are you doing? I've felt a little overwhelmed the past week - trying to get organized in my personal life and work life is a bit draining. This weekend is jam packed with apartment hunting, going to The Ainsworth for the Alabama game, and meeting up with old and new friends - it should be a good one! Hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the first fall weekend. Here are a few links if you're in the reading mood . . .
