No Celery Please – NYC Edition!

Parting is such sweet sorrow

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on August 23, 2014

So I gave it a lot of thought, and I am letting this site go.

I will private up all the stuff and then mothball it.

So much has changed in my life, and I am going to let this go as part of that.

I might start a new blog. If you want to know what that is… leave me a comment.

Thanks for all the time you’ve hung out with me!

Last week was quite the week!

2 days in Charlotte!

2 days in Atlanta!

Finally back home at a million o’clock Friday night.


Looking forward to a week at home.

Have I mentioned?

Things have finally settled down around here.

Moving = complete.

Work transition = complete.

Settled in nicely.

Part of the settling has settled directly into my thighs, because there is SOOOOOO much good food in this city.

And seriously, I haven’t even really gotten out of my neighborhood to eat yet.  And my neighborhood is where the LEAST GOOD food is.

Like… ask anyone “where do I get X in midtown” and they are like … “Oh no, for that you need to go to Astoria / Brooklyn / LES / Insert OTHER place here.

And I DO NOT CARE!  Because the “mediocre by NYC standards” food around us is SO MUCH BETTER THAN ANYTHING WE USED TO GET that I simply do not have to venture.

We DID go get dumplings in Chinatown last weekend. (Again, New Yorkers say it’s better in Astoria – but WHATEVER!  BEST DUMPLES I HAVE HAD EVER!!!)

I suppose at some point, this blog might end up not being about food, but seriously, do NOT hold your breath.





IMG_3034[1]As I was looking through the phone, I decided I do not take ENOUGH pictures of my food… I mean… I have eaten LOTS more things that I have no pictures of.  I need to get on the ball with this!

Oh Hi Guys!

I have nothing to put here.

Probably because all I am doing lately is working, working out, and eating.

Then I work and work out and eat some more.

The bakeries and ethnic restaurants are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


I have had some yummeroo Indian and Vietnamese food. I am having trouble deciding whether I want Indian or Vietnamese again tonight.

Oh – and Thai!

Tomorrow we are walking to Chelsea Market and then will have pizza at Bella Napoli!

Did I mention the eating?

It’s like we really live in NYC now!!!

Dear House…

I know you are going to miss us, but if you could go ahead and stop breaking things with only a couple of weeks until the sale closes, I would sincerely appreciate it.



Achievement Unlocked!

Going Hunting

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on February 1, 2014

Super excited to be heading to NYC tomorrow for our apartment hunting trip.

I wish I had realized I was booking the flight in on Super Bowl Sunday…  but I am pretty sure that everyone going to the game will be there already by the time we are heading in.

Alas, it does mean the Sunday hotel is about $100 more than it would be otherwise.

Oh well – that’s what the moving money is for!
