A Great story calls for a great cookie. twitter.com/Oreo/status/33…— Oreo Cookie (@Oreo)
Today The Great Gatsby opened in the US. Why do I know that? Because of Oreo. Seriously. And we just love the subtlety with which they plug the film — based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic of our begrudging adolescence, and never quite perfected on-screen — without getting all extra-obvious.
Oreo. Do you just sit around all day trying to think up more ways to be awesome? Because if so, it’s working, and we’re so happy you exist.
9PM: I’m making bacon, apple butter, onion grilled cheese
I should really be packing for my trip to Virginia tomorrow, but instead I’m sitting here blogging about this orgasmic sandwich I just made. Like, it was so good I couldn’t keep this secret to myself.
To be honest, I’ve been meaning to make this all week, but as my schedule tends to get, I don’t typically have time to make dinner. I’m working on this.
Anyways, here’s the details: Bacon, fresh sliced bread, french butter (because I’m fancy), onions, cheddar, and the SECRET INGREDIENT: My mom’s homemade apple butter.
I’m going to let the photos do the rest of the talking, as making this is pretty self-explanatory.
Try to keep the drool at a minimum.
finally putting details together
I’ve just resigned my lease, the first time I’ve ever done that in my three years here in New York City. Apartment #3 is finally getting some TLC and turning into a home. I still have some work to do, but my desk/work area is off to a good start (despite the nonlevel eye chart ;)).
^Having this area neat and organized make me want to sit here and CREATE. Such a good feeling.
^That camera took some of my baby photos (right, mom?). It needs a few minor repairs, but I want to get it back in working order and take some photos of my own on it.
^My Warby Parker’s finally have a home! Having had worn glasses since I was 4, they’ve become more than just a “have to wear” they’re an essential accessory. I don’t feel like myself with out them; and I love that.
^ I used to work with my dear friend/fellow cheese lover, RJ. One day I wrote “Hello!” in the middle of a stack of post-it notes on his desk and a few months later, he finally found it and responded with a, “Hi there!” Working with him was always the best part of my day and I felt like this post-it summed up all the silliness we had together.
^This is Emma. We went to high school, college, and even had our first job together. She’s a dear, dear friend. One time in high school I did a photo shoot with her for my film photography class. The photo framed here is one of the outtakes, but I love that it’s not perfect or poised, but carefree and fun.
Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.
