The verdict is officially out...I am no good at this blogging thing. Every week I think to myself, I should update the blog, but the longer time passes the more there is to update and the more daunting the task becomes, so the longer I put it off. I justify it to myself by saying that nothing too exciting has happened over the past couple months, but then I get a facebook message from my aunt trying to get in contact with me, and I realized that in the past two months we have changed addresses and phone numbers and both had birthdays, so I decided it was definitely time to come out of blog hibernation. Here are a few February and March highlights.
Lakers vs. Knicks at Madison Square Gardens! Since Greg is a die-hard Lakers fan and we didn't want any contention in our brand-new marriage, I decided to leave my loyalties to my Phoenix Suns behind. What better way to show my commitment to my husband (and his team) than buying tickets to see the Lakers play here in NYC! We had a great time, the Lakers even won and Kobe played exceptionally well!
On Valentine's Day my Boo took me out for a delicious meal at Kefi, an amazing Greek restaurant on the UWS. We decided to be adventurous and got octopus for an appetizer...when it came out and I saw the suction-y looking things on the tentacles I was nervous, but it was SO GOOD! Like always, we forgot to get a picture at dinner, so here is one of us on the subway on the way home.
President's Day weekend we had a random thought about how we would love to live on the Upper West side, around 72nd street. The neighborhood is close to Central Park and has a ton of our favorite restaurants, bakeries and markets. We had no intention of moving, but just thought we would look to see if there were any great deals. That week, we found the perfect 1-bedroom apartment right on 72nd Street between Amsterdam and Columbus, put in an application and signed the lease and started preparing to move. Here are a few pictures of the apartment - living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and view of the street!
The month of March was busy as we moved to our new apartment, had 2 birthdays and a weekend trip to San Francisco.
On March 2, Greg turned 27 - we celebrated with Juniors devil's food cake cheesecake (I tried to make a 27 out of the candles).
For my birthday, Greg took me out to dinner at this amazing sushi restaurant, and unfortunately we forgot to take a picture. Thanks to Greg for getting a picture of me with four cupcakes - nothing better than a birthday, lots of food, fat-girl shot!
And we have loved living in our new neighborhood! The apartment is for the most part set up, although we still need curtains and stuff for the walls.
