Went to the Bronx Zoo on Wednesday (suggested donation day) with two of my friends. It was a lot of fun. So many of the animals just came up to us and it was awesome. I hadn’t been there in two years, so it was really nice walking around taking photos again.

Nemo came by and gave Brooklyn a lot of snow. Sam and I played in it and had a mighty fine time. We went to the park in Bayridge and found a snow man in one of the neighborhood house’s lawn. Adorable.

Today was my classmate from grad school son’s first birthday. It was held at a place called Ichi Umi, which was a seafood buffet. Having a fickle stomach, I thought that a seafood buffet might not be the best thing for me. However, when I got there, the food was constantly going and the people were constantly making fresh new batches. There was hot food, cold food, sushi, dessert, fruit, salad. All the food was super tasty.

Having just pierced my ears for the first time, 2 weeks ago, I saw people with really awesome framed earring holders and I was envious and wanted one. However, when I went on Etsy to see if I could acquire one, the items people were selling were way more than I wanted to pay and some not even as nice as I wanted. So I set out to make my own.
I ended up buying a brown-yellow wooden frame, a window screen, and large red doily at the 99 cent store. The materials were ridiculously cheap and definitely not what was being charged on Etsy. The whole project, not including waiting for the paint to dry, took about 1 hour. I’m really pleased at how it turned out! So now I have cute earring holder that suits me, and it cost me almost nothing! Yay!
Nothing like a DIY project on New Years Day.

Finally completely moved into my apartment. It took a long time to sort through everything and find a place, but I did it! I’m donating a lot of things, but I managed to find a place for all the things I wanted to keep. I also made some cornbread muffins and baked chicken nuggets to celebrate. Yum.

I spent Christmas with my fiance’s awesome family in Pennsylvania. I ate a lot of food, and I got a ton of things. Among my favorites was a faux stag head from my fiance that I wanted (he got it from etsy), and a pretty jewelry box with bird earrings inside. The stag head was installed in my bedroom and I’m lovin’ it.

The Bayridge apartment fared pretty well, we didn’t lose power, have flooding, and the ceiling didn’t leak (the old tenants said that it did during Hurricane Irene). My parents and the house in New Jersey was okay, but they lost power and a lot of trees went down. I also can’t seem to get in contact with them, but I talked to them yesterday and they were fine, so I’m not too worried. I’m sending good thoughts to the people’s whose homes were flooded and demolished.
Before the hurricane, my parent’s drove up to check out the new apartment interior. They brought some food and my dad also brought plants! The plants give the apartment a nice shock of color. I haven’t found a place for the green plants just yet. I just hope I won’t kill them because the last plant I had was a cactus and I even killed that.

My uncle is a chef at a Chinese restaurant and he is an amazing cook. His food is always so flavorful and delicious. Every time we go to his house, he delivers to us a FEAST. No joke. I don’t know how he cooks so much! He’s a one man food making machine!
Lobster in garlic and butter!
Crab in garlic and butter!
Noodles that I loved as a kid, still love it now!
Delicious shrimp and tofu!
Weird giant fruit that tasted like a grapefruit and pomegranate.

The new apartment, dubbed “Old Bay” has been coming along nicely. It still needs a little bit of sprucing up. It’s very bare bones right now. I’d love to get some paintings and art in on here. And lamps with lamp shades. I’ve taken some pictures of my favorite pieces of furniture.

Moving in to a new place in Bayridge. Up until now, I’ve lived in a very college style manner, where all my furniture just felt temporary. Here is the bedroom, before and after it was painted. It went from a weird, dull, off white/peach color to “Stone White” from Benjamin Moore, which is a little bit grey. More airy, methinks. The view is the view from the bedroom window.
