One Goal: End Cancer!

Each year thousands of bike riders join together and ride in Pelotonia, a bike ride for one goal: to end cancer. This year Katie decided to ride to help raise money for such a great cause! She pledged to raise $600, which will be matched by Victoria's Secret, and within literally one day reached her goal! No matter how much, every donation made a difference… 100% of every amount raised directly supports cancer research at the James Cancer Hospital at OSU. Cancer is such a devastating disease, and we have all known someone who has struggled, fought, lost or conquered their battle. The money raised will fuel more research to finally put an end to the cancer war.

Just wanted to give her a shout out and say good luck this Saturday when she rides in Pelotonia! Very proud of our little love bug :)

Katie and Elaine Taka Taka New York!

Last week while in New York for the photo shoot after a long day on set we decided to venture out for dinner. We stayed at The James Hotel in Soho (an awesome place to stay!) so there were many good places to eat within walking distance. A few blocks away we found somewhere called Taka Taka - Mexican Sushi & Japanese Tacos. We'd heard good things about this restaurant so we gave it a try.

First off - the drinks! Along with co-workers Kate and Jackie, we decided to get mojitos. Not too sure what they put in those drinks, but they were delicious - quite possibly one of the best mojito's any of us had ever had!

The cool thing about Taka Taka is that there was a conveyor belt with plates of sushi traveling throughout each table. Each plate had a number that you could reference from your menu to see what it was, then when the number you wanted went by you just grab and enjoy. On one of those nights where you are absolutely starved and just can not wait for the waitress to take your order, this would be the perfect place to go. The waitress just kept track of the numbers we grabbed off the conveyor belt and added them to our bill at the end.

The food combination's at this place were really interesting because they actually did combine some pretty unusual ingredients to create Mexican sushi and Japanese Tacos. We ended up eating tons of sushi and ordered lobster tacos. Everything was so good, and we left stuffed! This was probably the best meal we had all weekend - and the cheapest too! Although there is an endless number of restaurants to try in New York, Taka Taka is definitely somewhere we would go back to again and again!

A Bite-Sized Blog Post

Last week when Katie and I were in New York for the photo shoot, we were sent out to run a few errands. While walking around in Soho we came across a little cupcake stand called Little Cupcake Lover, a food card that carried bite-sized cupcakes for $1.50 each.

Katie decided to go with the peanut butter chocolate cupcake and I had the nutella mint. For $1.50 each we probably could have had at least 10 of these babies because they were so good! We decided against this because once we got back to the shoot we would have definitely felt like big fatties next to the super models. 

If you are ever in New York and are near the Victoria's Secret on Broadway you should check it out!
