Weekend Recap: Apartment Hunting & the Jersey Shore

Saturday: We literally spent the whole day apartment hunting. We were out from 10:30 - 5:30 trying to help my brother find a new place in the city. Apartment hunting in Manhattan is no joke. Apartments disappear within an hour. There's such a high demand that realtors don't need to be nice or accommodating. We weren't very successful so we'll be looking at more this week! After a long exhausting day of looking at apartments, we headed down to Jersey.

Sunday: We celebrated my aunt's birthday with a family BBQ full of bbq chicken, corn on the cob, macaroni salad and watermelon. My cousin also brought over her new dog which she rescued, Rosie. She was the sweetest thing (p.s. the chubby dachshund is my mom's dog). For dessert there was chocolate cake from Billy's Bakery and the world's greatest chipwich (in my opinion) from Hoffman's. I crave them constantly!

Sunday night: I watched the finale of The Bachelorette (there's nothing else on!). I won't spoil anything with names but I will say that I agree with her choice and so happy with her final decision! After that was another episode of Breaking Bad! Last week I had mentioned the show and some of you had asked about it. For those who don't know, it's a show on AMC on Sunday nights at 10pm. It stars Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle fame) who is a chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer. In order to make money for his family he teams up with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul) to cook meth. The development of these character is so amazing. There's a reason it was nominated for 13 Emmys this year (and always gets top nominations). I say it's one of the best - hope you tune in!

What did you do this weekend?


  1. I love the Bachelorette and I am so glad she picked who she did. The other one had more of a physical connection with her but this one is more likely to last!

  2. Sounds like a cool weekend. Good luck apartment hunting for your brother, and the food at the BBQ looks delicious.

  3. Sounds like a pretty good weekend! Apartment hunting in LA is hard too. It's so annoying that the landlords never call back. Why put up a sign if you don't want to rent the place out?! Good luck to your bro!

    Thanks for linking up with us :)

  4. I know someone else who was apartment hunting in the city and she was having a really hard time too. Hope you find what you're looking for and that it works perfectly for you, whether it's in the city or in Jersey.

    By the way, my hubs loves Breaking Bad! And I want that ice cream cookie.

    1. Oh yes it's quite the adventure!

      Aw you should watch it with him :)

  5. I don't watch the Bachelorette but I've seen so many bloggers that weren't happy with her pick, it's refreshing to see someone who was happy for her! New to your blog and loving it! Lol :)

    Stop by and say hi sometime!

    1. Aw thank you :)

      I get why girls like Arie, but he's such a jerk. Did they not see how he acted when she told him the news? He tried to walk off?? I think Jef is a very sweet guy but Sean was ultimately my favorite!


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
