What: A blog to catalogue our summer exploits in the city. Also, motivation to get out and do things so we seem like hip, happening people. We solemnly swear to post at least one entry per day, even if it’s just a picture of a cute cat. Well, we solemnly swear to try.
Why: We simply couldn’t get enough of New York during the school year and were just dying to enjoy that glorious NYC summer weather. We didn’t have quite enough humidity in Missouri.
Oh and you know, to do that job thing and explore the city sans homework.
Where: New York, NY – Upper West Side, SoHo, Midtown, Long Island City, Queens… anywhere the subway can take us and more.
When: Summer 2012
The title?: Well we’re both from Missouri (MO), we’re currently both in Manhattan (…Manhattan), and we’re enjoying some more of it past the school year (mo’). We decided to go the literal route. Plus alliteration. How can you resist?
