Extra! Extra!

My boyfriend Nick and I are featured in the Sunday Styles section of the New York Times today, talking about how we couldn't afford to take our planned vacation(s) this summer due to crazy-ass fuel and airfare prices, so we just went out to dinner instead.

I had a lot of fun with the whole process, from talking to the writer, Alex, to having our picture taken outside Nick's work while the entire neighborhood gawked ("What on earth is that man doing with such a huge camera?"). I maybe look like I have a mild case of lockjaw in the final product, but Nick looks hot, and the simple fact that my picture is in the New York Times with the caption "They'll Always Have Pasta" is enough to make me cry with joy.

You can read it online if you want to, but as Alex said, it would be better if you bought a copy, or ten-thousand.

I can't wait to see it in print!

Woooo! Go, you :)

Now you'll always have pasta AND The New York Times!

P.S. Is that the metallic teal eyeshadow making an appearance in the picture? It's so lovely :)

Elizabeth said...

Blimey, your boyfriend IS hot.

No chance he has an identical twin living in Melbourne who's has a thing for crossword-addicted blondes?

d'jen--
It most assuredly is the metallic teal eyeshadow! Good eye! (heh, heh. eye. heh.)

Elizabeth--
I'll question him about that. Since he's dating me (a crossword-addicted blonde! Represent!), I'm sure if there was a twin you'd have a good shot!

Lady Smaggle said...

Look I'm with Elizabeth. You're boyfriend is a total fox. And so are you just quietly...

Elizabeth said...

Gosh, yes.

Can't fly to Chicago? Why not fly halfway around the world to the fashion capital of the Southern Hemisphere instead? I'm sure Lady Smaggle and I could toss a coin/jelly wrestle to the death to work out who gets to host you.

Mmm.. jelly...

Wow, you and Mr. Daddy Likey are a yummy couple indeed. If you ever make a "video" or something, let me know. :)

Oh, and congrats on the feature! Plus, the eyeshadow and the headband! Nice!

Could you rascally kids be any cuter! I think not.

Who needs a vacation when you have such fame?!

WendyB said...

Oh my God! You look so cute!

Vixxie said...

Aaaw! How sweet! You both look lovely together!
And I have mentioned you in my blog post...however it is absurdly long so I'll just say it's only a link to your "Riding the bus with my nightmares" post! Very funny indeed! :D
Vixxie.

Shannon said...

Aww! Congratulations!! You two are gorgeous and sooo stylish :D Your boyfriend looks like Adrian Grenier. Great article!

Mindy said...

What did Anon. mean by "make a video"? I'm a little disturbed by that. Anywho, you both look adorable.

Pamcasso said...

I knew it was the mac eyeshadow! congrats! I'll read it in print, as my boyfriend gets it and always saves the fluffy sections for me (shhh... bc they're the only ones I read...)

Bekah said...

oh don't you two just look so adorable..and would you look at that beautiful teal eyeshadow!
your boyfriend looked like adrian grenier for a minute and I almost crapped myself (I knew it wasn't him, obviously, but still).
I'm too poor to even go out for pasta :( haha

Claire said...

Aww, you look amazing together. Congrats on the Times, that's way cool. And for the record, I did actually see it in print :)

Anairam said...

Congratulations, Daddy L! You are even more famous now. Sorry about the trip though ...

Joanna Goddard said...

yay!!! so excited about this :)

D'Rae said...

You guys are so adorable! Love the photo!

Kelly said...

Can we trade boyfriends? I mean, now that you are famous and will be fielding 10,000 modeling contracts a second, you will have male models hanging all over you and you probably want to donate your "used" boyfriend to charity (i.e. me)....right?

soilikethelike said...

simon n' josh said...

and i dont remember if i ever mentioned it, but the santana show was hilarious!!

i really need a vacation. i had my 1st vacation in over 3 years last November, (and it was a little less than a 3 day one at that too)

enc said...

Wow, cool! Congratulations!

a little sewing on the side said...

OMG, I read that this morning! And discussed it with my husband. Wow. So exciting for you! You media queen, you.

Anonymous said...

congrats!
and cool surname by the way.

Sal said...

Holy moly! Congrats, lady! What is WITH them not including a link to Daddy Likey, tho? Inconsiderate bastards. Good thing they took a fabulous photo of you and Nick to make up for the oversight ...

KiKi said...

congrats

ambika said...

This is *so* cool! Just wait until it's your name on the byline!

TheSundayBest said...

Fame!

(launches into 80's dancing)


Yes...the world got smaller and then, just as quickly, became impossibly large once more.

caroline said...

and now, a mention on jezebel!

dayna desastre said...

lisa said...

Great article, and you guys look adddoooorrraaabbble. You've got so much more going for you two than just pasta.

kater said...

Haaay I totally read that this morning :D

ShopDownLite.com said...

That is so cool. Yeah I have heard the whole staycation/holistay, etc. for like a week now :-)

That is def a framed moment - cool beans!

steelcloset said...

How fun!!! You are officially a newspaper model!!! Lol next is television.

Brett said...

Why didn't you consider Amtrak? The Empire Builder train goes from Portland to Chicago and passes through Montana, where it has 12 station stops. You can change in Chicago for an overnight train to Boston. Portland to Chicago starts at only $143 a person. Portland to parts of Montana is $94 a person. Did you guys not even consider this?

Heather Outside Boston said...

I saw this on Sunday! We had been to NYC for a weekend, picked up a paper to read on the train home, and there you were! I recognized you even before I read your name (which I always remember because it's my middle name).

You and the Mister look really great. Congratulations!

By any other name said...

The story is cute! And sort of sad at the same time...stupid gas prices are ruining the best laid (layed?) plans of summer. On a side note, I have been reading for a long time but never commented. And then I realized when I read your post that I used that very article to cover my carpet up when I painted a piece of furniture this weekend! Of course I went back and looked at the print version to see your picture! And now I will forever remember you as saving my carpet from blue paint!

Neil said...

Dinner is always better close to home anyway.

aMAZING.

miss cavendish said...

Oooh--I read this piece in the Times but didn't make the connection! Congrats!

Sales Rack Raider said...

Congrats! You guys look great, and you're so witty (as usual) in the article too. I love it.

Peajai said...

Your bf is very cute and has great hair! Congrats on both. :)

Anna said...

How cute are you two?? Wow! Congrats on the cute bf. (and the rockin eyeshadow!) I think he's the only guy I've ever seen who can totally rock the stubble AND still look like the kind of guy you could introduce to your parents.

Seriously, though, what could the talk show host douche-guy honestly have to say about you without making crap up?? So strange. The mention of you guys is totally innocuous, and not nearly as..sigh..forgive me for using his minions' word--"whiny" as the chick who was talking about how she knows vacations are a luxury but she's still upset that she doesn't get one?

I'm so confused. And not even because I had beer on an empty stomach tonight.

so cute!
