new apartment

1. Welcome to our new apartment! Of course now it’s filled with five million cookbooks (not an exaggeration), the.boy’s tie collection (also quite large and in charge), and a very large farm table in front of the window that I spent a small fortune on. My reasoning – it’s life furniture. I can tell because it is large enough to hold me, the.boy, and at least eight future babies if we utilize both long sides.

2. Of course, then we’ll have to buy a second bench, butΒ that’s what the interest on our savings account is for! (<–#wishfulthinking)

3. And by farm table, I obviously mean that I bought it at Macy’s because was a farmer going to expertly carry it up five flights of stairs and assemble it in my apartment? I think not. The Macy’s expert furniture installer guy, on the other hand? He’s obviously a sucker.

4. I baked my first fall dessert this weekend. Not gonna lie, it made me feel a little dirty. I might have taken a cold shower afterwards.

5. In my defense, it was for an assignment. (/itwasamazingandIcantwaittoshareitwithyou)

6. Pumpkin spice flavored condoms. I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad that their existence is just aΒ figment of social media’s imagination.

7. (But Durex…if you don’t capitalize on this idea now that it’s out there, I guarantee you that someone else will. Get on it.)

8. This week in wedding planning progress….we tackled our florist! I will be holding this rose/orchid combo (those colors match the bridesmaids’ dresses) and the bridesmaids will be holding something similar but with some white flowers in the mix also. It will be very yin and yang.

9. Also, Sunday is my bridal shower. Apparently this means I’m forcing myself to work out this week because DRESS! PICTURES! EVERYONE LOOKING AT ME!

10. Everything aches.

    The farm table was money well spent. Memories are going to be made around that table – and that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
    Enjoy your bridal shower! I’m sure it’s going to be amazeballs! πŸ˜€

  2. I *love* that bouquet! The colours are so rich and sumptuous!

  3. Johanna GGG says:

    love the room – want to see the table – good luck with the shower – am sure you will look great (and if not just serve great food – ha ha)

  4. Beautiful bouquet you’ve chosen!
    Congrats on the move. I approve of the farm table – definitely a smart investment πŸ˜‰
    And have fun at your shower!

  5. Number 6…. hahahaha!

    Eeek can’t wait for Sunday, you will look beautiful!

  6. Sues says:

    Ahhh gorgeous flowers! Congrats on the apartment and happy bridal shower weekend!! So much excitement in your life right now πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  7. debbie says:

    I love large tables… many people can be seated around them. The bouquet is beautiful and have a wonderful bridal shower. Post some pics for us…such a happy occasion!!!!

  8. Megan says:

    Congrats on the new place! And the farm table! Hope you guys are settling in.

  9. Isn’t that a sweet picture…eight babies around a wooden farmhouse table. Let me tell you. Kids aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. πŸ™‚ Just kidding. Love mine to the moon and back. They make life fun.

    Love the new apartment.

    Woo-hoo. Bridal shower weekend. That will be so much fun!

  10. Christina says:

    Love love the floors in your new place πŸ™‚ So happy you ordered the table, it was necessary! Enjoy the shower this weekend.

  11. Hehe – cracking up over the comment that you felt “a little dirty” making a fall dessert. I’m on a mission not to do anything pumpkin until Sept 21 (unless it was for an assignment of course!) Want to see the farm table in place – photos pls πŸ™‚

  12. Nicola says:

    I would love to see a picture of your farmhouse table! I’ve been coveting one for so long now.

  13. SallyBR says:

    I want to see the table!!!!! I want to see the dress….. I don’t want to see the pumpkin condoms… πŸ˜‰

    Enjoy the new nest!

  14. Clearly you have no use for the pumpkin condoms seeing as you want 8 KIDS. It’s obviously just a ploy to get your own reality show. I can see through your plan.

  15. Meg says:

    Ha, I had the same reaction to the pumpkin spice condoms! Durex is missing out on an obviously-excitable market if they don’t capitalize on that right now. πŸ™‚

    So glad you’re settling in! Definitely want to see your awesome table and maybe peek at your cookbook collection, too. Spence and I just installed our bookcases in the new library room on Monday, and I’ve been buzzing like a bee trying to get all my books organized in there! I have a whole shelf for cookbooks, but it’s becoming more like two shelves now . . .

  16. sandra says:

    Very excited about your table. And those bouquets are stunning. Can’t wait to see the whole day unfold.

  17. Lori R. says:

    1. I love the wood floors in the apartment!
    2. That bouquet is gorgeous.
    3. Number 3 made me laugh out loud. Good choice on the table and the assembly assistance.

  18. Heather says:

    A good table is worth the splurge! I’m still looking for the perfect farm table that will seat 8 – 10 people as our butcher block table only sits 6. Not conducive to holiday entertaining!

  19. OMG I cannot wait to see the table! The apartment looks great! Amazing how much you get done in a NYC apartment!

    The condoms, not real but so funny and I totally think there is a market for it!

  20. Sippitysup says:

    Happy to hear the wedding plans are moving ahead so stylishly. Now show me the table. GREG

  21. Lynn says:

    LOVE that bouquet! And your apartment looks awesome – love that floor!

  22. The apartment looks gorgeous! And I’m glad you went for the Macy’s table, as that looked gorgeous too. I like to embrace the term life furniture…along with life kitchen ware and life coats and life books πŸ˜‰

    Have fun at your shower!

  23. Zainab says:

    Look that bouquet is beautiful! Love your wedding colors πŸ™‚ Have fun at your shower this weekend dear!!

  31. cheri says:

    Love those flowers, so gorgeous! Also that table sounds amazing!

  32. Hotly Spiced says:

    Good luck with all the unpacking and I saw a picture of the table on instagram (I think) and it looks lovely and no, I would never, ever want to be the person that has to carry someone else’s furniture up flights of stairs and then assemble it. Your flowers look amazing and what a pretty colour. I hope the bridal shower goes well xx

  33. Beth says:

    Looking forward to that first fall dessert – and the shower photos!

  34. P says:

    You moved in! Yay!

  35. Christine says:

  36. Hey girl congrats on your new apartment and can’t wait to see the table. The condoms thing was funny!

  37. It’s worth spending money on furniture as that way it should last. Have fun at your bridal shower πŸ™‚

  38. Monet says:

    So many good things! And bring on the fall recipes. We’re supposed to get snow on Friday!! I don’t know what to do with that!

  39. Emma says:

    Pumpkin condoms? Obviously. Have a wonderful shower, and congratulations on a successful move and a fab farm table!

  40. The bouquet is beautiful! Have fun with the wedding shower!

  41. Pam says:

    Please, please, please – show us the farm table!

  42. Farm table sounds so lovely! WE need a pic πŸ™‚ #6 seriously OMG! I thought it was for reals!

  43. Sarah says:

    Congrats on moving in! Also the farm table sounds so pretty — show us a picture, or better yet a picture of the farm table with your amazing cooking on it πŸ™‚

  44. Yay for a new place! I bet that farm table looks amazing underneath the window. And Pumpkin Spice Condoms?? I just…cannot. Too far, pumpkin spice. Too far.

  45. Exciting times certainly await you…stressful but lots of fun. Love the flowers! I have a 4 x 8 farmers table that moved all the way from Florida to New Hampshire when we moved as I don’t think I could live without it when entertaining.

  46. Courtney says:

    So excited for the new place! And the table! And the wedding flowers! AHHHH! I can hardly contain my excitement over all the awesome stuff you’ve got going on right now. In case you can’t tell by my excessive use of exclamation points.

  47. Susan says:

    Cant wait to see the farm table in front of the window but most, importantly, I see it has both heat AND air conditioning. Gorgeous bouquet! Have a great time on Sunday!

  48. Reeni says:

    Your bouquet is going to be GORGEOUS! And I can’t wait to see your farm table!

  49. How fun that your bridal shower is this weekend! Have a blast! I’m always all about buying big and heavy things like furniture and TVs from stores that will deliver them. I’m not really interested in breaking myself of what I just bought to save a few dollars.

  50. I’m soooo behind on my blog reading, but congrats on the new digs! So jealous of that natural light πŸ™‚ xoxo
