The other weekend I moved into my new apartment! After 6 years of roommates I am finally living on my own! Moving into a new apartment was all fun and games until I realized I had n o t h i n g to put in it. I moved with only my clothes and my shoes. You know, the necessities 🙂
To get things rolling in the furniture department I did a lot of online shopping. I bought a couch on Overstock. I returned the couch from Overstock. I struck a credit card bill at West Elm up to my eyeballs, shopped the kitchen sale at Crate and Barrel, and bought some coral piece at Pottery Barn that I probably can’t afford. Finally, I am getting somewhere! 🙂
The best news to all of this is that Maria and Lou live in the same building! I know, we’re annoying. Since I was still waiting for my pots and pans, I decided to head over to her apartment to see what she was cooking up. She had a great Stuffed Pepper Soup recipe from our good friend Kev. He is an amazing cook and also a huge supporter of our blog! This soup is so filling and delicious! Oh and more importantly, it’s boyfriend approved! 🙂
