For our first full day in New York we started at Columbia University to take some match-up photos from Ghostbusters (which you can check out here). I spotted some great light on campus and took the opportunity to take our portraits in it! This is my cousin, Nan! Native New Yorker, one of my best … Continue reading NYC – Levain Bakery, Central Park, DUMBO
Another year down and we were able to mark some new places off our Bucket List! Here’s a look back at where 2015 took us! S T . L O U I S We started the year with our annual trip to St. Louis for Schlafly’s Cabin Fever beer festival. It was our 8th year … Continue reading From the Beach to the Desert to the Conrete Jungle
One of my favorite things about going to New York City is that we have family to visit with! I really think that is the big reason I’ve always loved the city so much. The comfort of family can make the giant city feel like home. My Uncle David moved from Manhattan to the Bronx … Continue reading Family Dinner in the Bronx
This 78-foot spruce may not look as magical as it will on December 2nd, but it was pretty neat to be at Rockefeller Center the day the chosen Christmas tree arrived! As if there wasn’t enough buzz happening at 30 Rock that day, we happened upon a crowd, a limo, and a camera crew outside the … Continue reading Rockefeller Christmas Tree Arrival!
Three weeks ago was the first time I had ever been to the Chelsea Market in New York City! My sister and I had been running around the city all day, making our way down to fill our bellies with local food. By the time we got there my feet were k-i-l-l-i-n-g me, so we … Continue reading Chelsea Market + The High Line

Top of the Rock is named so because it is on the rooftop of 30 Rockefeller Plaza (NBC headquarters). While this has become a huge tourist attraction, I don’t think it should be … Continue reading Top of the Rock
“Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would buy you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” – NY152 Ahhh, You’ve Got Mail. One of my all-time favorite movies. It has romance. It has humor. It has New York … Continue reading You’ve Got Mail Filming Locations!
I’ve been in a bit of a minimalist clothing phase over the past year. The capsule wardrobe thing is hot right now, and while I haven’t gone to that extreme, my closet has taken quite the trimming – handbag collection included. It feels good to have one really good bag option for whatever situation I’m … Continue reading The Ultimate Small Travel Purse
At the first of this year, my original goal was to travel somewhere every month of this year. I thought it would be feasible with short weekend trips to Texas, Tulsa, or Arkansas, but it turns out it’s exhausting to travel every single month! Even to places two hours away. We definitely learned this year … Continue reading 2014 Travel Year In Review!
The weekend after our trip to NYC (where we visited many Ghostbusters movie locations!), we attended a new (to us) event in Oklahoma City that happens every third Friday of the month. It’s located in Film Row, which I had not even heard of until that night! As we walked around to check out local … Continue reading We’re Movie Stars! Ghostbusters Reenactment, Film Row OKC
