All Rise for #99

If it isn’t evident from my posts so far, my boyfriend, Matt, is the best. A few weeks ago, he surprised me with tickets to the Yankees/Mariners game and not only that, he got seats in right field by Aaron Judge. Oh, and did I mention he also got me a Judge #99 shirt to wear to the game? So, like I said, he’s the best. Not only did it happen to be the perfect weather for an August Friday night game, it was also Star Wars night (!!!!!). Being the incredible nerd that I am, I was super hyped about that. Matt probably couldn’t have picked a better game for us to go to. It was my first of the year, his fourth? Or fifth? Something like that. The one game we went to last year was in mid-July and it was a toasty 98 degrees. I thought I was going to pass away several times at that game, so this experience was far more enjoyable. Like I said, our seats were right by …

D.C. Take Two

One of my favorite places that I’ve visited so far is the DMV – and no, I don’t mean the Department of Motor Vehicles, but rather the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. One of my best friends and college roommate, Kelsey, lives in Rockville, Maryland with her fiancé. I had visited Kelsey for the first time in February ’16, and had been back earlier this year with Matt. But I was excited to be experiencing DC in the summer.   I got into Union Station on Thursday night. Kelsey and I joined our friend from school, Bridgette, at a bar where she lived in Arlington, VA. Arlington was an awesome area, with a young, exciting vibe and lots of cool bars and restaurants. We had a few drinks to catch up but both Kelsey and Bridgette had to work the next day so we got food (big surprise) and headed home. The next day Kelsey was able to work from home so she could hangout with me and the puppies. Kelsey has two little dogs, Nala …

I Love NY (Sometimes)

When I was young, I was adamant that I would never live in New York City. I hated city life; hated the concrete, hated the smell, hated the crowds. Needless to say, I have since come around to the idea of city life (given the fact that my sole source of income is located in the heart of Manhattan) but there are still times that I’d love to pack up and leave NYC forever. My way of navigating around these fleeting feelings of dissonance include A) living in Hoboken so I can escape during my hours of slumber and B) taking advantage of all the cool things New York has to offer. Case in point – the yacht owned by the New York Health & Racquet Club (aka my gym). Typically this yacht ride is $30 per person, but my friend (and co-worker, but more so friend), Alex, and I were able to take advantage of a corporate partnership event and get a free 2 hour ride around Manhattan. And yes, I know what you’re …

My Favorite Places: Bungalow Bar

Over the past few months, I’ve admittedly been pretty behind on my blogging. So as a final ode to summer, I decided to do a catch up on everything that has happened between now and my last post. One of the places I want to highlight is called Bungalow Bar, eloquently described by Google as a “waterfront restaurant with a casual vibe offering American food, drinks & frequent live music.” Google, you’re not wrong! My boyfriend, Matt, introduced me to Bungalow Bar at the beginning of the year, but the first time we went it was still too chilly to eat outside. Bungalow Bar in the summer, however, is a whole ‘nother ballgame. It’s an awesome summer spot for dinner or drinks, and the night we went happened to have ideal weather – warm enough to be outside, but cool enough that I wasn’t wading through my own sweat. It was the perfect weekend getaway to escape the city while staying close to home.
