Is it seriously Friday?  Geez.  Now that I have internet (in Starbucks, not yet in our apartment) today may be a multi-post kind of day.  Let’s back up to Monday.

As Kyle and I unpacked our things…some old, some new…we each enjoyed a cup bowl of coffee together. 


Thank you Patti for these wonderful mugs.  They hold 3 times the amount of caffeine for a normal person (which is equal to approximately one Elise serving).

Next item that took up residence was the fruit basket.


May this never be empty!


Eventually I took a break from opening boxes and got to cleaning hippie-style.  My Aunt and G-ma hooked it up in the eco-friendly cleaning department with enough Meyer’s products to make Al Gore orgasm.  Maybe not…


At one point I came across a box labeled “Elise’s Food Stuff.”  You’d think I would remember packing it (after all, it was only a couple of months ago that we were boxing up our NYC lives for storage…), but I couldn’t for the life of me recall what it was.  Who would have known that seaweed, bars, and protein powder would make me jump up and down like a 4 year old who just got a pony for Christmas.


But that’s pretty much exactly what I looked like.


Think I have enough bars?

In case of natural disaster, our apartment is prepared to feed the masses…


…and provide tea for the greater Los Angeles population too (?). 

I am seriously baffled by the sheer quantity of tea that I (a) had in NYC [given our kitchen size, it probably occupied 65% of our cabinet space, and (b) decided to keep in our cross country move.  With the 3 month storage fee, and the cost to ship it from NY to CA, I’m thinking that tea just quadrupled in it’s monetary worth.  I must be crazy.  Or a tea lover.  Let’s go with door number two.


Anyways…pantry space is my new luxury, and I’m prepared to show it off, but I suspect your attention for the apartment portion of this post is waning, so I’ll get onto the eats.  If you want a preview of our new apartment in a future post, holler at me and I’ll see if I can make it happen before 2012.


Whole Foods has been our savior as we suddenly find it’s 4 pm and neither of us has eaten lunch.  Nesting is a full time job, but it’s SO fun.  The time flies by and yet the to-do list keeps growing.  Crazy.


I’m just happy as could be right now.  I keep pinching myself to make sure this all isn’t just a dream.

    I totally wanna see your apt, and I’m coming by for tea next time I’m down.

    The “original” Whole Foods was a Mrs. Gooch’s, wasn’t it? It’s on the road that runs down to Venice by the SM airport. Before I left they’d also put a beautiful store (Wild Oats?) north of there (but south of you, maybe on Centinela?) near the Jamba Juice. Even though I have WF up here, I miss those stores more.

    You are hilarious about Al Gore ;) THAT is a mental image I would rather not have.

    I am so happy that you are happy! Your new place looks adorable, and already I am envious of your kitchen. Love Mrs. Meyers, too!
