Hello my loves! Things are a little crazy and disorganized around these parts lately so please bear with me. Some of you may recall my post last week about my split and part of that is that we are selling our house. The last few months have been about cleaning it up and getting it nice and polished in order to go on the market. We listed it last Tuesday and from Thursday to Saturday I had 13 showings! People were in and out. It was kind of nuts. Then, on Saturday night I got a text from my broker that I had received a solid, perfect offer. We accepted it this morning. I have been so super stressed out lately worrying about the possibility that we would have to carry our current mortgage and my ex’s apartment simultaneously and it terrified me. We will still have to do that for a few months but at least now I know there is an end in sight and I feel so LUCKY that this is one less thing on my plate. Now that things are getting situated I can hopefully return to blogging on a more regular basis. I miss you guys!
I know I am late for a weekending post but here is a little peek at what I have been up to these last few days…
I spent Saturday doing showing after showing at the house and as soon as the last person left I jumped in the car and went over to B’s new place in Astoria! It is gorgeous and I had such a fun time. Her friends are super nice and I got try the most delicious potatos (with bacon!!!). B, please give us the recipe! I also got to meet M’s little guy and he is THE cutest thing ever!
On Sunday I had a girl’s day with Taylor. We decided to be NYC tourists and I loved every minute of it. We began our journey with a ride on the Staten Island ferry where I purchased my very first selfie stick for $5. I don’t know why I have been avoiding this trend. They are so much fun! We used ours all day.
We went to see Matilda on Broadway and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it! It was extra special for me because this was the book that I first fell in love with as a child. It is responsible for my love of reading to this day.
Next we went to Toys R Us in Times Square and took a ride on the giant ferris wheel. Fun fact, you do not get to pick which car you ride in. They assign you to the next one that comes up. The last time I took Taylor there she was four and we were given the Mega Bloks car. She wanted the Barbie car (or at least the My Little Pony car) and she cried the ENTIRE time. (Her face in the below photo cracks me up.)
Things have changed tremendously in the last six years. To begin, my child no longer cares which car we ride in. Another notable difference is that they will not take photos of you on the ride anymore and if you whip out your newly-purchased selfie stick, they threaten to confiscate it. THE NERVE!
Next on the agenda was a trip to Ninja. It is a theme restaurant downtown. I DO NOT recommend it. While the ambiance was pretty cool, (all the waiters are dressed like ninjas and it set to look like you are eating in a dungeon) the food was disgusting and WAY overpriced. I spent $120 on one appetizer that Taylor and I shared, a kid’s meal for her and a burger for myself. I drank a water (so no alcohol was included on that tab) and Taylor had one lemonade. I wouldn’t mind it being expensive if it were good but it was gross (and this is coming from a girl that likes Chuck E. Cheese pizza). There also was no cool choreographed fighting like I thought there would be.
Dont let the smile fool ya, we were not loving Ninja.
Okay, well I hope you all had a nice weekend! Swing by tomorrow for a fun giveaway! xo
