FINALLY Friday. This week went by sooooo sloooooooowly. Indulging in one of my guilty pleasures on Wednesday night, The Bachelor Pad & a glass of wine, I was eyeing up things up in our teeny apartment during the crazy long commercial breaks. We do as best we can to keep it clutter free but after a wedding and the generousity of friends & relatives....well, we have a mixer sitting beside a wine fridge in one corner, piles of frames behind the chair, etc, etc. With it being wedding season and all (is it just me or is FALL becoming the new wedding season?), I thought I may do a quick FF post on my 5 favorite wedding registry pieces & apartment necessities for a new family of 2 with basically no space....for like anything;)
Glass bottle with swing top. I mean, this is literally $3.95. And I bought it for myself but this little guy is a dinner staple. Fill with sparkling water and eliminate the plastic labeled TJ's ones from the tablescape. Even if it's takeout for dinner, doesn't the table look better with glass and flowers? The answer is yes;)
A Wedding Bowl. Gift-wise, this is my favorite sentimental present we received from our wedding. Engraved with our names, location and date, we've filled this with our wedding cards and program which sits on top(idea stolen from the perfect homestylist Mrs LPA;) A constant memory of that day that I love wandering my eyes over when at home, and occationally dipping in to re-read a few...
Grill Pan. You know what stinks? Not being able to have a gas grill (or a lawn, but I digress). Everything summer food related tastes better on the grill. And while I totally smoke out the apartment when using this, this pan comes as close to the real thing as anything else. It's cast iron and heavy as heck, but when your husband (read: you) craves blue cheeseburgers, this thing does the trick. Charring to perfection.
The Coffee Canister. I know its sister the Utensil one is there too which I like but dont love. The CC, I love. I like this set because in our small kitchen this is really all that matters. A few spatulas and coffee. Nothing else necessary. Really.
Pizza Stone. If there is one fru-fru, unconventional, kind-of specialty kitchenware that you register or purchase for a bride...GET THIS. Some of the best memories we have in our place are nights that we open some wine, grab authentic Italian ingrediants from Eataly and make some personal pizza pies. And you can entice you're friends over with it :)
PS: Check out a new part of the sidebar for other fun, inspirational, witty, health-focused, everyday, girly blogettes that I follow. I couldnt do a top 5. I just couldn't pick!
Sarah: one part of a family of THREE with my husband Lee and sweet girl Morgan, simply wanting to chronicle the path I'm on and the path that will come to be. For now it's NYC urban mamaville where everyday is a new adventure! (Actually, just getting to the post office is an adventure.)
