John and I have leisurely been looking at apartments since our lease is up in November and we've decided not to stay in the apartment we're in. Its not that we don't love our apartment, its that we hate the stairs that we have to climb to get to our apartment.
We've been looking at lots of different neighborhoods and don't really care as long as we can find all the things we want in an apartment. Sunday morning we went to check out an apartment in Willimsburg in Brooklyn. I don't know how much I love Williamsburg, but I definitely love the apartments there. The one we went to look at was brand new and beautiful. It had a great kitchen with stainless steel appliances and really modern cabinets. We looked at a two bedroom apartment which was awesome in terms of space. It even had a washer and dryer in the apartment which is pretty much unheard of in Manhattan.
Realistically we shouldn't be looking at apartments yet because all the ones we've seen have move in dates either in September or the first part of October; our lease isn't up until the first part of November, but its just so fun to look we haven't been able to help ourselves.
After grabbing lunch and walking around Williamsburg for what seemed like forever we went back to Manhattan and saw the movie 9. It was a little dark for a children's movie, but it was ok. I think John enjoyed it more, I thought it was kinda weird.
Since we were around Union Square we decided to try this dumpling place that we had heard people talking about. Apparently they have some crazy recession special and an order of dumplings is like $2! I love dumplings and was really excited. We ordered three different kinds of dumplings some fried and some boiled. The fried ones were definitely the best. We tried a couple of other things on their menu and our dinner came out to $13, by far the cheapest dinner we've had in a long time. I would go back to Vanessa's Dumplings anytime!
Sunday couldn't really compare to Saturday in terms of excitement, but this was the best weekend ever because John and I got to spend sooo much time together. Most weekends John has to do some work and we never have this much going on. I had so much fun hanging out with my husband and enjoying all that NY has to offer!
