October 2014 | Recap

This month, Courtney and I got to explore the city a bit more!

We visited Fabric Row. There are quite a few shops, but only a few that we'd actually go back to. Most were upholstery shops or 'discount' fabric places with kinda weird fabrics. We did find a couple of shops that had a nice selection of apparel fabrics though, which was nice.

We tried Metropolitan Bakery. It was 'eh'. Kinda overpriced and slow service. I don't think I'd go back for coffee or breakfast, but I do want to try their bread.

Finally got to visit Trader Joe's and stocked up on pumpkin goodness! We bought other things too, but the fall pumpkin goodies were the highlight.

I swatched for Courtney's Christmas sweater.  It's the Grandpa Cardigan by Joji Locatelli.

I bought the Thug Kitchen cookbook and made Tortilla Soup, which was delicious. So far, I'm loving the cookbook. I want to make almost every recipe. 

We finally tried Grindcore House and then walked to Target.

I made Courtney go with me to the Brooklyn Tweed Fall '14 trunk show at Loop and meet Jared Flood! I wrote more about it here.

Courtney's family came to visit and took us shopping and out to eat (a lot!). They stayed right near City Hall, so they had a nice view from the 26th floor.

I took my first graduate school midterm exam in Biostats and got a 97%. 

On Halloween, Courtney and I went shopping at Uniqlo and had a late lunch at Mi Lah Vegetarian.

I also caved and bought Halloween candy at 8pm, but it was already on sale! 

Goodbye October, hello November!
