It’s been another busy week here in Seattle!
Here are some of my favorite articles from the week that get to be combined with some other posts…

Now, I can’t be the only person that runs into this problem. Everywhere I go I am always reminded of something that I feel the need to write down or rather type into my phone whether it’s a song I need to add to my Spotify playlist, a blog I need to visit, or a person I need to look up. Normally, I would just put it into my notepad function, but I have accumulated so many different notes that even though I thought I was being organized, I became…unorganized.
Thinglist is an app that I kind of want to download myself because now it has easy icons that tell me exactly where my little thoughts should go. Check out this Vimeo introducing the app.
We’ve all heard the stories that it costs an arm and a leg to live in New York City, but that’s just an expression. Until now or at least if you knew someone that lived over there, here are a series of photographs of crappy apartments in the city and what they cost. This prized room above with intricate tiles? $500 in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.

No matter how many movies they make or how many articles they write about how unhealthy McDonald’s can be, there is still something that draws people to this restaurant. I was just telling Kevin tonight that all I wanted was a Big Mac, Fish Fillet, and 2 for $1 baked apple pies. Obviously, this would not have been consumed all at once, but it is still what I wanted.
People from all walks of life all over the country are consuming McDonald’s. One man named Nolan Conway was intrigued by this diversity and spent the past year traveling all over the country to photograph hundreds of different people eating at McDonald’s restaurants. Check out a snippet of the photo series here.
It’s been awhile since I’ve come across something so extremely breathtaking and as amazing as this. As a little girl, I always dreamed of having a wedding outdoors or maybe even in a vineyard though I have never been. I never thought my taste in weddings would align with chapels, but if they are as magnificent as this one, then I might have to change my tune.
The chapel, which can be found in Eureka Springs, Arkansas houses one of the few examples of organic architecture. Designed in 1980 by architect E. Fay Jones, Thorncrown Chapel provides some stellar views and follows a very organic design. The structure is such a wondrous piece that it is hard to believe that anyone or anything could think of harming it, but that is currently what the chapel is up against. Recently a power company has applied to construct a 48-mile high voltage transmission line that will put it right alongside the chapel in the woods where it is located. I hope that this structure can be kept safe and at peace in its tranquil home, but it’s tough to say at this point what will happen.
Did you ever think that ice cream could be transformed into bread? I didn’t. It blew my mind and now I want to try it – correction I NEED to try it. Apparently, the recipe is actually pretty simple and only involves two ingredients and two steps. It’s like how I made all of my meals in college all over again except back then, I wish I would have had this recipe. To make ice cream bread, you just need to mix softened ice cream of your liking with self-rising flour. I’m not exactly sure what comes next…
For me I need very detailed steps because knowing me, this could go very wrong.

Men and their alcohol. It’s a love that many women don’t understand, but at the same time – we do. And that’s okay, because we’ll let them have their thing and that will just be it. Cool Material introduced me to something very intriguing today called “My Whiskey.” Basically it allows a Whiskey lover to create their very own customized whiskey from the ”grain bill, the yeast, the barrel, the age, the proof, and the name of your very own whiskey.” It will be 80 proof and will equate to about 160 bottles ($38 a bottle) so you better make it a good one! Basically, you will be set for life. So to whom do you owe all of this goodness to? None other than the Mississippi River Distilling Company.
