Oh, hello! was the only title I could think of after not blogging in, oh, two months. Last time I posted I was living in Harlem, working a temp job, singing every Taylor Swift song after attending her concert. Now I have grown up; we are living on the Upper East Side, I have a real job, and I now listen to Taylor on the subway…gimme a break will ya! (said in my best New Yorker accent) When crammed next to strangers on the extremely humid subway it’s kinda the only thing I can do to keep my mind off screaming.
So we got a new apartment. A real post is coming with pictures and details, but right now we basically just have a bed, a couch, and a desk. Not exactly an Apartment Therapy worthy post yet, but it is coming along.
I also got a real job. Ever heard of that little wedding magazine called The Knot? I pretty much lived by that book during my pre-nuptial days. It was my favorite wedding magazine I ever purchased, and I purchased them all! Well now I work for one of their sub-brands, The Bump. (They also have another brand called The Nest.) It’s a pretty great company to work with so far, and working with such highly-driven, career-focused, fashionable women has been…intimidating, but also extremely inspirational.
Little sister, Miriam came to visit. Well, she came with her choir, but I’m pretty sure it was mostly to see me. I introduced her to Magnolia’s cupcakes. Obvs. And the cute little dog? After seeing The Great Gatsby (Have you seen it yet? No?! Go, right now. Forget all other responsibilities and go!) we were riding home on the subway and ran into the adorable dog you see in the bag. I creepily asked to take a photo. He (the dog) obliged.
Oh, and the beautiful picture of the water and city skyline? That’s Jackie Onassis Reservoir where you will find Mister Blaser running and me…fairly far behind him, but I mean it’s a circle so I’m sure sometimes I will be in front.
Best milkshake so far in our island-wide search for the best? The Milk Bar inside Chelsea Market. No contest.
So proud of my husband @misterblaser who put together Talkr which is a website for people who are being bullied. This has been in the works for a while now. After hearing many stories in the news the past few years of people being cyber bullied he began realizing that there are not many options for kids/teens who need help. Who wants to read a boring (and ugly) government site? Or what if they are too embarassed to tell their parents? Or a school counselor? Or even have the courage to talk to someone face to face? How does this generation communicate? Twitter. Email. Text Message. Why not help them out in the best way they know how?
