Hello! Hi! Hola! Aloha! Howdy!

Welcome to my small corner of the blogging universe.  My name is Mariah.  I’m a 27 year old chica that lives in the Big Apple (NYC!).  I share a lovely yet modest apt with my roomie C and my beloved pup Stewie (why yes, I do LOVE Family Guy, how’d you guess?!)

Stewie and I

Stewie looking all cute-like and me looking like me. 🙂

I work a silly little desk job that keeps me chained to my desk from 9-5. When I’m not slaving away, working for “the Man” in Midtown, I can be found (as of recently) slaving away at the gym.  On my downtime I enjoy watching films, going for walks, perusing the internet, and decorating my apt.

Why do I have this blog?  Well…after reading numerous blogs on a religious basis, I’ve finally worked up the nerve to make me own.  Yay me!  I was faced with the dilemma of what kind of blog to have: a  chronicle of my apartment  decorating projects OR an account of my weight-loss journey?  I decided to go with BOTH!  Why together? Because I wanted to be able to update both of them simultaneously and I knew one would get lost in the dust if I separated them.  I also have another catch-all category entitled “HAPPINESS” to blab on about other musings of my life.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions… let me hear them!

Thanks for stopping by, come again!
