This and That



This made me laugh.

Lemony chicken and orzo soup FTW. (I skipped the leek and the dill, and it was still delicious.)

Marimekko Target collaboration.

Saw this band yesterday night. So pretty/sad.

Quiz: Can we guess your age and income, based solely on the apps on your phone? (This was so wrong about me, but oddly flattering and fun. Under 32?!? Why thank you, Washington Post!)

Such a pretty swimsuit.

A Year in Photos: 2015

Hello there! The retrospective photo post is the best kind of post, amiright?

This year will be remembered most awesomely as being the year we bought our first house. (!!!) It has a yellow door and lots of character (ahem, what others would call room for improvement); we love it and it instantaneously felt like home.

And, what an amazing year of travel! Miami, Key West, Naples, Orlando, Marion, Atlanta, and Chicago. My mind dizzies at all the fun that was had.

This year was one of the good ones. So many memories to hold on to for the rest of our lives. *insert smiling emoji with the rosy-red cheeks here*

On to the photos! (You can take a look-see at past years here: 2014, 2013, 2012.)

My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

It's finally cold in Austin! Which means it's time to start planning what'll make the cut for this year's Thanksgiving menu. And also time to put together this year's music playlist.

When my sister and I both lived in Brooklyn, we made a habit of listening to Dolly Parton every Thanksgiving. Because it seemed appropriate? Actually, I'm not sure why. But I do know there's nothing like standing in a tiny, warm kitchen with a spatula-mic in your hand singing along to “Jolene” with your sister with the smells of a turkey roasting and pumpkin desserts cooling swirling all around you.

So what I'm saying is that, this year, I'll be most thankful for Dolly. Obviously. And also maybe these pretty great recipes that I've turned to more than once during the holiday season.


Two-hour turkey and gravy.

Sausage and apple stuffing.

Martha's macaroni and cheese.

Roasted Brussels sprouts.

Pancetta crisps with goat cheese and pear.

Pumpkin cheesecake with caramel swirl.
