Earlier this week, I asked Jen if she wanted to meet up for coffee before my move this weekend. Well, what began as plans for a coffee date transformed into a full-blown blogger dinner with a few of my favorite ladies:
We met at Peaches for dinner, a cute cafe that serves sandwiches and delicious breakfast all day long. I had originally planned to order breakfast, but when I got to the restaurant, I decided on the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich instead.
Grilled Eggplant, Zucchini, Squash, Red Onion, and Tomato with Mozzarella Cheese on Grilled 12 Grain Bread
It was so delicious! All of the flavors worked really well together. I ordered sweet potato fries on the side, and I’m glad I did. They were crispy and sweet, just the way I like em. I ate about half, and took the rest home to Jeff. He loved them, too.
It was great meeting up with my local blends (blog friends) one last time. I’m really going to miss hanging out with them!
I was still craving a big ol’ breakfast when I woke up this morning. So after attending a ridiculously sweaty spin class, Jeff and I headed to my favorite local diner to fulfill my craving. I ordered an iced coffee with milk as soon as we sat down:
I must have stared at the menu for five minutes before finally deciding on a Tomato, Onion, and Feta Omelet:
With dry wheat toast on the side:
The home fries were wayyy too buttery, so I pushed most of them to the side (yes, there is such a thing as too much butter). The omelet was fantastic, but very filling, so I ended up taking half of it home for breakfast tomorrow.
After breakfast, we decided to check out the New York State Museum in downtown Albany. We figured we’d finally go four days before we move away from Albany. I mean, we’ve only lived in the area for two years. It would have been totally illogical to take advantage of this free tourist attraction before now, right? (Can you sense my sarcasm?)
Anyway, we founds lots of neat stuff there. Like, this old NYC Subway car:
And the skeleton of a Mastodon found in Albany County, NY:
Pretty cool, if you ask me.
We spent close to three hours in the museum. If you’re ever in the area, I definitely suggest checking it out!
When we got home, I decided it was finally time to start packing. I had been putting it off until after my birthday on Monday.Sunday is quickly approaching, however, and we have a whole apartment to pack before we can move.
Packing all of our stuff is overwhelming, so I’m taking it a little bit at a time. I started with the linen closet.
Here it is before:
Oy! As moving day gets closer, the fact that I’m leaving this apartment behind is becoming more and more real. I’ve known about the move for a while, but it’s finally really sinking in that by this time next week, I will be living somewhere completely different. I love this apartment, and have many wonderful memories here. It was my first apartment, and I know I’m going to miss living here.
As I close this chapter in my life, I know the months ahead will bring many changes. I also know that everything will work out for the best in the end.
How do you deal with life changes?
I’m not good with change, so advice would be helpful!
Do you like exploring your own city, or are there places you live near but have never been?
Jeff and I have agreed that we are going to explore the heck out of the next place we live. None of this waiting till we’re about to move business.
Have a great Thursday! <3
