I Got #Plated

I love living in my new apartment – the commute is so much better (40 minutes compared to an hour and a half), my room is cutely decorated (pics to come), and I’m starting to feel like a real, big, grown adult (which I don’t want to be yet). There is one thing that is not fun about living on my own: coming home from work after a long day and struggling to figure out what to make for dinner. What a luxury it was to live at home and know that dinner was always waiting on the table for me.

Plated came in and made things easy.

YUM! Paella

IMG_6808

If there is one thing everyone should know about me, it’s that Barcelona is one of my favorite places in the world. It is where I studied abroad for the best four months of my life from January – May 2014.

Birthday Celebration

Sometimes they aren’t.

WOW! Can you believe that game? Unreal!! As the self-proclaimed Number 1 Tom Brady fan, a HUGE congratulations to my New England Patriots on their well-deserved Super Bowl win! Cue the duckboats!

Aside from the incredible game (that caused me much more anxiety than I ever want to experience again), the best part of the night was the food. Living in a house with eight other girls means there was no shortage of food. We each decided to contribute a dish so you can imagine that we had so much food! From wings to fries, guacamole and chips, chili dip to taco cupcakes, we did not go hungry. Food, drinks and a Patriots win… a perfect Super Bowl Sunday.

Onto more important matters… the Halftime Show and the commercials.
