Pinch me...

…it doesn’t seem real that I have finally moved!

After moving the furniture on Friday, we packed the mini van to the ceiling and headed back to Brooklyn on Saturday. Luckily, Drew was willing to come over and help me get settled. Between my mom and dad and his help, my apartment was starting to look like a home by the end of the afternoon.

As you can see, there are still boxes to unpack, but my Berlin painting has finally landed in its rightful place and paper white bulbs have been planted and might bloom by Christmas. Unpacking has been a bit like Christmas; “Oooooh, I forgot I had that” was a phrase I used more than once this weekend.

After saying goodbye to Mom and Dad, I wasted no time heading out to see a bit of nightlife in NYC. I made a couple rookie subway mistakes, so the cocktails were already flowing by the time I arrived at Houstons to celebrate Katy’s 27th birthday. I had not participated in any of the planning (bad friend), but I thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with the girls for a fun evening. The homemade veggie burger and cocktail (it was pink!) were delicious and the company was a riot! For a brief moment I felt like a stylish hip New Yorker enjoying everything the city has to offer. But another subway mishap on the way home reminded me that I have a lot to learn!

What am I going to do tomorrow morning with the 1.5 hours that I won’t spend commuting? I could start to run off the two dinners that I had on Saturday:-0 Or I could relish watching the first snowfall of the year as I leisurely get ready for work. Hmmm, tough decision;-)
