someone like you

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too

Along with most of the world, we've been on an Adele kick lately.  This song though, we LOVE!

cooking cheat sheet

The abundance of great restaurants in NYC makes it incredibly easy to stay far away from the kitchen.  After all, taking advantage of the city's to-die-for culinary experiences on a daily basis seems totally ideal.  The problem--it can really add up (both in $$ and calories).  Solution--we've taken up cooking!

Big Girls, Small Kitchen is one of our favorite food blogs (they actually have a book coming out next month!).  Pheobe and Cara share great recipes they've come up with for twenty-something, busy, calorie conscious girls on a budget--could it get more perfect? 

In the spirit of our upcoming trip to New Orleans later this week, here is one of our favorite cajun recipes from BGSK: Shrimp 'n' Grits. Bon appetit!

monday mornings

via cartoonstyles 
Recently, our lives have been run by lists: grocery lists, shopping lists, things we need for the apartment lists, restaurants we need to try lists.  Why not throw another one in there? 
  1. TODAY'S TO-DO: make a more/less list of a few changes that you'd like to make in your life
  2. More importantly, find time to check them off. #getmotivated
