It's Official!

Well the time has come... It is now official...
We are moving to New York!

Steven got an internship with Times Square called the Times Square Alliance. We are so pumped to move out of this city! We have had these plans made for months now. Steven started applying to internsips in October and just NOW something came! It was almost getting to the point where we felt we were going to New York with or without an Internship. We are certainly glad there is one though.
We are leaving Salt Lake on May 28th, (right after my best friends wedding.... it will be one heck of a day!) on a red eye flight. We leave Salt Lake at 11:30 and arrive at NY at 6:00 am! I have a feeling we won't be sleeping much that night... But quite frankly I don't think we care one little bit!
We found an apartment on campus at NYU on a street called Mercer Street. (doesn't that sound so cute? I can't wait to send mail home with our cute little address on it! ha) We still don't exactly know what room we are getting but its a studio apartment, complete with a bed, desk, kitchen and bathroom. Oh, and did I mention its a whopping 400 sq. feet. Yep, you did that math right... Your thinking right now "Wow thats the size of our walk-in closet." It will be tight. But we are already planning on spending as little time there as possible. I mean with a place like New York who would want to stay indoors anyway!?

This is just to give you an idea what we are dealing with here. (Notice there is one small closet... and if any of you know me, you'll be crying for me right now.)

Ok I know this pic is tacky but this is the only thing we have to go off of! ha

The only thing we are thinking of though is how much fun we are going to have spending 11 weeks in such an amazing city. We are already starting a list of everything we want to do while we are there. If anyone has been and knows some cool restaurants or places to visit let us know! I'm planning on being a diligent blogger when we get there! I'll be sure to post everything and a lot of pictures. I want our family to see what we get to enjoy every day.

38 more days!
Hopefully with that much time left we can still plan and pack everything we need to! But who knows... with a husband like mine, he'll be packing the night before.


  1. Kylie!!!!! Oh my goodness! I could barley read fast enough to comment! I am soooo excited for you and way freakin jealous!!! That is so awesome!! You need to come visit your mom and come to our ward so we can talk and catch up!! This is so neat!! I really am so jealous right now! Sheesh!

  2. K so the apartment pic looks way nicer than I envisioned....hmmm and it probably IS better than the actual apartment - they always are, right? But like you said you won't be spending tons of time there anyways. I just want you guys to be safe!! You're gonna have a blast! We're excited for ya!
