WO: Weekly Obsessions

To say I’m delirious would be an understatement. Restless nights coupled with funtivities and overall exertion have resulted in one very loopy Wittyburg. I’d like to say I’m closer to sanity than spiraling out of control … but I’m not holding my breath.

  1. Father’s Day: It’s about time we celebrate the main men in our lives, huh? I’m sending Slick Rick lots of love and a little something special to remind him how much he means to us.
  2. Awkward Family Photos: I couldn’t believe I hadn’t yet covered this site, a favorite of mine — especially back in 2009. So many awkward arm shelves, so little time!
  3. Frying Pan: I attended a birthday dinner at this spot last week — gorgeous views of the city, tasty chargrilled burgers and even clean bathrooms! My only issue was with the cost of beer, but such is life I s’pose.
  4. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Marvin Gaye f. Tammi Terrell: You know when you just need a really good cry? Ladies, you feel me. This song always reminds me of “Stepmom,” which in turn gets the waterworks flowing.

Right, Marvin? Right, Tammi.

Weekend Recap

I’m generally not one to brag, but I have to say: My weekend was just plain awesome. It feels like I’m hitting my stride in my new city, and I couldn’t be happier with the experiences and memories I’m gaining.

Friday: SA-KE-BOMB!

  • All You Can Eat Sushi + Sake @ Chinatown East – sushi was delicious, but the unlimited sake bombs reeeally got the night going
  • One and One – a new favorite spot, it’s chill upstairs and a thumping club downstairs
  • Dancing at Pianos – worth the $5 cover to go upstairs for better music and quicker service
  • We hit another bar after that, but I don’t remember the name (sign of a good time)

Saturday: Low-Key Lounging

  • Slept in for the first time in weeks and accomplished nothing – oddly OK with this
  • Wharf in Murray Hill – visited our friend who works there for pre-gaming
  • Brooklyn house party – celebrated friends who graduated from hair school, law school, design school and another who passed the NY State Bar

Sunday: Fun-Filled Finale

  • Boozy brunch at The Guilty Goose in Chelsea – very strong mimosas alongside eggs benedict with a jalapeño hollandaise
  • Stopped in to see Heroes & Villains at FIT – fascinating facts featured in fun and interesting exhibits
  • Made our way home to watch SNL – Kristen Wiig’s return to the stage at 30 Rock did not disappoint
  • Phone date with Magz – because she should be celebrated every day for what she put up with from us

Though it went by way too quickly, I had an absolute blast throughout this weekend. I can’t wait to enjoy more of this improved weather and share my finds with you guys. Cheers!

WO: Weekly Obsessions

Today’s nine hours of travel while fighting off a nasty head cold was enough “adventure” for me to begin my life in New York. And now, our hotel Wi-Fi won’t grant me access — safe to say I’m beyond annoyed.

But I know, without a doubt, I am making the right choice in taking this chance.

Even as the wind of a raging storm whips against our windows, I’m excited and so ready for this chapter to begin.

And I think that’s worth enough WO to last a lifetime.

Witty in Fitty: Real. Life.

Booked a one-way flight to NYC today. Nonrefundable. No turning back.

I’m excited and scared and happy and sad and most of all, I’m thankful.

My support system has been incredible — always is, but especially —
the past week.

I can’t wait for my life as a New Yorker to begin.

WO: Weekly Obsessions

This week’s obsessions are all specifically selected to honor one of the best cities in the world — and one I’ll soon call “home.”

That’s right, dear readers: I’ve accepted a job offer in NEW YORK CITY! The champagne is poured and the mittens are purchased … let’s keep the party going.

  1. Central Park: Is there anything more beautiful than a snow-capped Central Park? I’m sure the novelty will wear off when I’m shivering in my boots, but for now, just look how preeetty.
  2. Yankee Stadium: Um, duh. It’s the offseason, so they have a few months to prepare for my arrival. But you bet your pinstripes I’ll be there as often as I can. Mrs. Cano, anyone?
  3. Rockefeller Center: It’s the 80th anniversary of this majestic holiday tradition at Rock Center. Ice skating, hot chocolate and a larger-than-life tree? Don’t mind if I do.
  4. “New York, New York” – Frank Sinatra: Might as well go full-force with my NY mania, right? Iconic singer, legendary song, and it’s played after every Yankee win at home — perfection.

The coming weeks will be filled with excitement and anxiety, but I’m incredibly thankful for the blessings I’ve been granted. Hope you’re each having a wonderful week and celebrating your good fortunes too.
