    NYC Bucket List-ed: 30-Day Challenge Recap


    This is a sponsored post written by us on behalf of the Visa Clear Prepaid program and the Kaiku® Visa® Prepaid Card. All opinions came straight from our own noggins, not a robot’s. You might remember before our somewhat abrupt cross-country move from the Big Apple back to the Beehive State…

    Observations on NYC vs Suburbia


    Moving out of a New York City apartment and into a house in suburbia is a big change. Okay, that’s an understatement. There’s almost nothing similar about our life in New York and our life now. As we’ve been getting settled in, Johnny and I have found ourselves thinking aloud…

    Until Next Time, NYC


    If you follow me on Instagram or saw our update on Facebook, you know that we’ve packed our bags on city living in NYC and returned to suburbia. There were a few factors at play, but it really boiled down to being closer to family. Although it seems as if…

    The NYC Bucket List 30-Day Challenge


    This is a sponsored post written by us on behalf of the Kaiku® Visa Prepaid Card, part of the Visa Clear Prepaid program. All opinions came straight from our own noggins, not a robot’s. When Johnny and I created our 2015 budget in January, we got to our Vacation category…

    A Tourist’s Guide to the NYC Subway


    If you find yourself visiting New York City for more than a day, odds are you’re going to ride the subway. You’ll definitely do some walking, but you can’t see everything NYC has to offer on foot and live to tell about it. And at some point, you might even…

    NYC and OFB Update


    We’ve almost been NYC residents for three months now, so I wanted to give a brief update on how we’re adjusting this time around. I still can’t believe this is our second time living in the city! And honestly, it feels totally different than last time. For one, we’re on…

    Best NYC Delivery Services Compared


    Since moving (back) to New York City, our grocery shopping has been flipped on its head. As many of you probably still do, I used to hop in the car, drive five minutes to Costco or Walmart, get out of my car, and walk into the store. I’d walk up…

    When a Biker Hits Your Stroller


    Indulge us on a little storytelling/venting. Before Sally was born, we bought this stroller/carseat combo, and the stroller has been perfect to have in NYC. It’s sturdy, compact, and super easy to carry up and down subway steps. And it even fits in those narrow grocery store aisles. AND it…

    How to Get to and From NYC Airports


    In the next few months as New York City begins its winter thaw and the city comes alive again, friends and family will be  visiting us in this crazy city we call home. From the very start, there’s a lot to get used to — the sights, sounds, smells (both…

    Are These Items More or Less Expensive in NYC?


    I can’t remember the last time I watched The Price is Right. Not because I don’t love it, but it seems like it’s only appropriate to indulge when you’re laying on the couch with a wretched stomach bug. But if memory serves me correctly, they have/had a game where you guessed…
