I know, I know...I've gone missing again. Terribly sorry for my lack of posting this weekend, but having Friday and today off from work, I felt the need to take full advantage of my sudden freedom.

Also, I've been super busy, running around the city looking for furniture and other assorted home items because I FOUND AN APARTMENT!!!!! Finally! I cannot begin to explain the nervousness/relief/excitement that I've been feeling.

What do you think? I need help making a decision!

Have a fabulous end to your Labor Day vacay!

P.S. DON'T forget: The best show ever, Gossip Girl, premieres tonight at 8 (EST)! Also, the all-important NY Fashion Week is coming up (yay!) and GG will be incorporating this into upcoming episodes. Cannot wait!
