tuesday tunes: best coast

Best Coast - 'Our Deal' - Directed By Drew Barrymore - Music - More Music Videos

Can't get enough of Best Coast's album "Crazy for You". I listened to it a ton last summer and it's making a come back again. It's just my ultimate summertime record. Plus, it makes me nostalgic for last summer living by the beach. I really need to go on and listen to their new album, but I just can't get back my first love of their first. Love this video too, sad, but an interesting West Side Story take. And interestingly enough, directed by Drew Barrymore. How bought that?!

4th of july

Fireworks truly amaze me. Especially the ones that look like pixie dust falling over the city. The 4th of July was spent frolicking around the city of Manhattan with good friends, beating the heat with lots of water and popsicles. And then scouting out a place in Hoboken to watch a spectacular show of explosions in the sky, with the New York skyline in the background. Can't get much better than that, I must say. :) Truly Thankful!

relaxing weekly wrapup

How refreshing does that water look?! And those mountains?? Gorgeous. While I have been dying for trip to some far away land lately (California, the Mediterranean, heck, even Canada!) I was happy to spend the weekend completely relaxing in the suburbs of New Jersey. Beating the heat with seeing Spiderman, renting the Iron Lady, and ordering some local Italian for dinner was the perfect way to wind down. 

Beat the Heat with 
these guys.

NYC Restaurant Week (for 20 days??)

Secrets of New York

graphics and interesting theory....

Roman Holiday is playing tomorrow on Bryant Park's Lawn

My favorite new
concert website to find all the free concerts and more in the area!

The heat is making me want to swim in
this pool so bad! And then maybe grab a nice cocktail afterwards at their bar.

For a good 
laugh :)

Enjoying the
redesign of this Atlanta bloggers home.

Chill out to witanddelight's 
summer playlist.

Makes me want to travel!

J.Crew's swim collection is pretty freaking cute.

this one!

I can't wait to show more about this past week with the 4th of July and my friends being up in the city! Such fun exploring and spending some good quality time together. It's never enough time though! :( It just slips by so fast. I can not wait until I'm reunited with my sweet group of friends, whenever that may be. As for next weekend, I'll be flying back down south in order to pack up my sweet Auburn apartment. But I don't want to think about that now.

That One Time

...when we made Paula Deen Cinnamon Rolls!

Back in December, when Ryan visited Connecticut, we decide to try out a cinnamon roll recipe. Not too shabby for our first go at it! Ryan used to work at a bakery, so he knew more about the yeast and dough and such. I think we could have changed up the icing some and added more cinnamon sugar. 

That's just the sweet tooth in me I guess :)

Busy Bee!

This morning I read
this great article on being busy. Sometimes when I have nothing to do, I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Especially when I'm at work. Tim Kreider offers an interesting view of catching a break.

Speaking of a break and relaxing, I love this scene from HBO's Girls.
Sometimes you just need to dance on your own. Or with a friend :)
