Life Lately

This week has been kind of a blur. I landed at JFK on Wednesday night and was up bright and early and in the office by 9am on Thursday morning. After a day of meetings, a doctors appointment, some errands, and an event, I had a few of my old co-workers over for some wine (Someone has to drink all of this wine in my apartment before I leave!) and it turned into a 3am slumber party. Oops! Friday was mostly spent packing up my apartment — I’ve gotten half of my kitchen and 90% of my closet packed so far! Packing isn’t really the issue, it’s more so the process of going through every single belonging and deciding if it gets donated or if it moves to Chicago with me. I’m also trying to figure out exactly what I’m going to do for the two weeks that I don’t have any of my stuff — The movers pick up everything on 6/26 and then don’t deliver until sometime between 7/5-7/10 in Chicago. I’ll be sleeping on an air mattress in my empty apartment for the last few days while I tie up loose ends. And then I have a one-way ticket to Chicago on 7/1. So I am planning to pack a suitcase for my last few days in NYC, 4th of July weekend in Chicago, and a few days after potentially. It’s going to be a whirlwind of boxes, suitcases, and emotions, that’s for sure!

All of my different to-do lists are kind of paralyzing for me lately… There’s so much to do and I’m not exactly sure how it’s all going to get done. There have been times where I’m just staring at my lists, not even knowing where to start. But it will get done! I mean, it has to, right? Moving to-do’s, packing, trips to Goodwill, blog to-do’s, work to-do’s, NYC bucket list items, friends to see before I leave, etc. Eeeeks! So if it gets a little bit silent around these parts over the next week or two, bear with me!

Here’s a little peak into the prettier parts of my life lately… Gotta love having Instagram as a highlight reel!

Getting back into your workout groove is so hard post-vacay!! (Remember this post talking about that?) At least for me, anyway. And for whatever reason, it’s been especially hard after this Palm Springs trip. Finally got back to SoulCycle yesterday for an ass-kicking with Hallie!

PS: If you’re following me on Instagram and are ever wondering where to find an item I’m wearing, you can get shopping links sent directly to your inbox with a service called Like to Know It! Once you register on their website, whenever you “like” one of my Instagram’s with a link, you will receive an email that looks like the picture below, with all of the products right below the photo. Clicking the product images will take you directly to the retailer shopping page where I purchased the item! Don’t worry about these spamming your inbox because you can choose your email preferences — right away, one email per day, or one email per week. Just thought I’d share in case you were interested… Super easy! 🙂

    Looks like a fun trip in Palm Springs! Yes I know all about crazy to-do lists. Sometimes I spend so much time making/adding to them, I run out of time to actually get anything done. Haha Good luck with the move! 🙂

    I’m currently going through the same situation with moving from Houston to Boston. The hardest part is definitely deciding what to keep, donate, etc. – so much to do in such a small timeframe. Thank goodness for professional movers!

    Palm Springs is one of the top destinations on my travel list! It must have been amazing to stay at The Saguaro (I’m 100% jealous). Good luck with the move – I’m sure everything will fall into place 😀

    Sounds like you’ve got a lot to do! Just take it one item at a time – you’ll get there 🙂 And I’m not going to lie, I’d love to move just for the purpose of really cleaning out everything that I don’t need anymore.
