YES! Day 7 was a good day – our belongings arrived! We were so excited to turn in our air mattress for our cozy bed. I will tell you what, not having your things for almost a month will really make you feel thankful for what you have. We got through quite a few boxes and I was able to begin decorating – which definitely put me in my happy place. This weekend I will be working for West Elm and weathering the crazy holiday shoppers! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and indulged in a lot of eating, sleeping and drinking! Three of my favorite things of course. 🙂

Ahhh, Day 6 (I missed a couple of days so I am playing catch up). It’s been really great so far you guys – the city is charming and it actually feels like the holiday season, something that San Diego lacks. Still in the beginning stages of feeling like home, but it’s getting there. Cody and I decided to take on this whole public transit thing…which was interesting to say the least. We walked to the subway entrance closest to our apartment, destination: West Elm (where I will be working part-time). We purchased our “charlie cards” and headed downstairs to figure this thing out. Of course, we got all cocky and just hopped on the first one we saw thinking “oh, this is the one”. Come to find out it was taking us the opposite direction we wanted to go.
We then began to realize it was going to take a few brain cells to actually understand the system. That’s also when I got a little nervous – I could just picture myself getting lost on my first day at The Elm. Luckily, we managed to figure it out and successfully made it to West Elm on the green line. The only thing I am still struggling with is when I get off at a new stop, figuring out where to catch the connecting subway to my final destination. It makes me panic a little bit, not knowing where I am and all. But, I am excited to be able to get around without driving…it’s going to be a nice change.
Bella got a sweater. And doesn’t she look just precious in that little thing?! 🙂 Cody and I were walking around one evening and stumbled upon D-Tails Pet Boutique so we went in and found Bella a couple of things. It was such a cute boutique and they even provide dog walking and daytime play groups!
Alright, so if you know me…you know honking and lots of traffic makes me anxious. Well, welcome to a big city, Jessica! It is CONSTANT and I am just going to have to learn to deal with it. Thankfully our car has not arrived so no one has honked at me – but seriously…it’s every minute. In my opinion people have zero patience in big cities and just honk for the sake of honking. Cabs are the worst, too. Everyone should just stay out of their way. I grew up driving in Oklahoma where everyone waves at each other in your neighborhood and people let each other out of parking lots into traffic with no problem. So that’s what I am comparing the madness to. 🙂 Anyway, woosa …. cheers to working on ignoring those obnoxious horns!
Since our move, I have been searching for a sleeper sofa that is attractive, yet a good sleeping option for our guests. Since we only have one bedroom – we think this could be the best option. We bought a REALLY awesome blow up mattress as back up…hopefully we will a lot of friends come visit at once! 🙂
CB2 Tandom Sleeper – I love the simplicity of this one and you would never imagine this can be folded out to a bed. I also like that you are actually sleeping on the sofa versus pulling out a (more than likely) uncomfortable mattress.
West Elm Henry Sleeper – My favorite thing about this sofa is that it is made here in the US and is constructed with recycled materials.
Joss & Main Valerie Sofa – I love the ash grey microfiber fabric it comes in and that it can be changed from a sofa to a lounger and then a bed.
Urban Outfitters Anywhere Sofa – I love how lightweight this one is and the price is AMAZING which also makes me a little nervous. It reminds me of this chair I had when I was little that folded out the same way and I would attempt to fold it to make a slide. I am sure Cody & I would do the same. 😉
West Elm Rochester – I love the take on the Chesterfield sofa! I would never think this one could pull out to be a bed.
Which one is your favorite?
