Happy Friday! I’ve been stuck in transition between my old apartment and my new one. Literally a week of sharing a bed with my sister. Luckily, the end is in sight. I’m partially moving into the new place tomorrow in order to make it as comfortable as possible for Sunday. What’s Sunday? Ethan’s coming to visit!! Yay!
This past week has been spent finishing up some work, tying loose ends, and starting new projects! I’ve finished my internship requirement for culinary school, cancelled utility bills from my old place, booked tickets to Chicago for March, and started a new venture with some friends from school (among much more, of course!). I’m taking the majority of next week off to spend time with Ethan and reboot a little bit. Come the week after next I’m starting full force into my new projects and adventures, so this break is much needed.
Yesterday I went over to my friend Whitney’s house in SoHo for a business meeting with her and another friend, Julia. I’m not going to say too much about it considering it was our initial meeting, and essentially a brainstorming session. As soon as things get under way I will be sure to fill you in! What I can tell you, though, is that Whitney is an amazing hostess! She provided a beautiful breakfast spread of wonderful over-sized muffins from Dean and Deluca, fruit, cucumber water, and coffee. Everything looked beautiful and tasted delicious, and certainly helped fuel our meeting!
Tomorrow and Sunday are going to be jam-packed with errands…weather permitting. Any East Coasters out there getting hit by storm Nemo? I hope you all have power! Anyway, on my agenda for this weekend: Costco, Target, Yankee Candle, grocery stores, nails (Whitney are we still on?), hair appointment in SoHo (wish me luck I’m doing something I’ve never done before, eek! but I LOVE my hair stylist so it’ll be great! I’ll show you pictures after), and last but certainly not least picking up Ethan from JFK!!!
I’m hoping to pick up some fun foods and arts & crafts that are Valentine’s Day themed for when Ethan and I are in the new apartment… without cable and internet! I’m excited because we haven’t seen each other in a while so it’ll be a good excuse to have little distractions, and really catch up. Oh, also on the agenda (hopefully) is the Our Global Kitchen exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History. I’ve been meaning to go with some culinary school friends, but I could never make it when they had planned. I think Ethan will really enjoy it too, so it’s perfect that we’ll have the opportunity next week.
So, all of my ideas for food and arts & crafts with Ethan are Pinspired (get it? did I just coin that?! probably not), as I’m sure all my ideas for anything will be for the rest of my life. I’m an addict. I wanted to share them with you and hopefully inspire you too! And by all means share any ideas that you have, too.
