I love you, New York.

{East Village apartment.}

My trip to New York was very successful. I found an apartment. Yay!! It was a stressful process but after a day of looking I now have a tiny, expensive apartment in East Village. I move back in exactly two weeks. 

It's crazy how fast the time is flying by. 

I also had a job interview while in the city. And I got it. I will be working at Bloomingdale's. I cannot wait. I just hope my employee discount doesn't get the best of me. 

While we in New York we didn't have much time for tourist activity but I did manage to go to a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman. It was so much fun, and somehow we managed to get front row seats. 

I probably won't have much time for blogging the next few weeks because I will either be working, packing, or soaking up every minute with friends and family. So if I don't, look forward to hearing from me once I get settled in. 

Until then, here are a few snapshots from our trip.

Weekend Wrap UP.

The weekend has come to an end and I slowly packing my things to head to New York. Slowly, only because my flight doesn't leave until 3:30 pm. 

I cannot wait to be in the city and searching for my apartment. I am just hoping I find one right away. I have to find one in-between my job interviews and touristy adventures like attending a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman. 

Wish me luck!! 

On the other hand, our last day in Boston was spent walking around the city enjoying its beauty. We walked down to the river to look over Cambridge, then spent the rest of the afternoon strolling up and down Newbury and Bolyston St.

To wrap up the weekend we had dinner at The Beehive. It is a basement that has been turned into a dinner + music venue. The feature Blues on Sunday, I loved it! 

That's all for now. I'll be posting about New York so hurry back. Meanwhile, here are some pictures from our long walks around Boston.

Weekend in Boston.

{Wellington St.}

My mom and I arrived in Boston on Friday afternoon. We decided to stop on our way to New York to visit our cousins. So far our trip has been wonderful. We have been visiting with family, venturing throughout Boston, and even watched some home videos during our down time. 

Yesterday, we spent the day at the Red Sox game. Unfortunately, they didn't come out with the win, but it was still fun. Before the game, we had lunch at a neat little bar called the Bleacher Bar. If you are a baseball fan, I definitely recommend it if you are ever at Fenway.

Today, we are headed out for a walk down to the river, and then a little shopping on Newbury St. I've decided to share a few photos so I don't overload you in one post. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!
