4th of July Wedding Weekend

July 7, 2015 7:51 pm Published by 4 Comments

Tony and I had a relaxing Santa Barbara getaway this long weekend, where we got to recharge and watch my dear friend Berkeley (little sister of my lifelong bestie and co-MOH Jax) marry her love Jack. It was such a happy, emotional weekend; Berkeley and Jax are like family to me. I've known Berkeley since she was born. We share an obsession with rescuing and collecting homeless animals. She and Jax grew up down the street from us, and Berkeley once snuck over and tried to rollerblade away with our family's cat. My dad officiated Jax's wedding, and we were co-MOH's and co-conspirators for that epic Napa wedding. So, it was the most beautiful thing to watch her marry the sweetest, funniest man whose family adores her as much as he does (and we do).View Article


Our Bedroom Remodel

July 2, 2015 11:58 am Published by 11 Comments

Tony and I (emphasis on I) recently decided to remodel our guest bedroom and turn it into the master bedroom. I've been in our place for nearly six years, and it just felt like it was time for a change. Lucky for me, one of my best friends, Amber McDermitt, is an interior designer and co-owner of Spruce Design & Organization, and she agreed to help me transform our new bedroom. I told her I wanted to live inside of Pinterest, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!View Article

We are getting married exactly ONE MONTH FROM TODAY. Today I had my wedding beauty trial AND my second dress fitting AND went to Tony's tuxedo fitting... My life has officially been taken over by the wedding. When I'm not scouring the internet for gold house numbers for a little DIY project I (Tony) will be attacking or pondering Xanax, here are a few articles I've been distracting myself with as of late. HAPPY HUMP DAY!View Article

Monday Funday: Chaz Dean Video

June 29, 2015 12:53 pm Published by 2 Comments

Got the Monday blues? Watch this, it will make you feel better! Depending on where you work, probably NSFW (unless you're living the carny lifestyle of chasing dreams in Hollywood, and your "office" is your dining room table. Like yours truly.) My friend Jimmy Fowlie originally performed this Chaz Dean impersonation in the Groundlings Sunday Company, and recently filmed it in Tony and my backyard. Tippi, Maggie and I make cameos, but Lucy has the real star turn as "Coconut Head." ENJOY.View Article


LOVE WINS!! MARRIAGE EQUALITY!!

June 26, 2015 12:29 pm Published by 1 Comment

LOVE WINS!!!!!!!!! You guys, I am in tears. It is outrageous and disturbing that this took so long and was ever a question to begin with and not a natural right, but my heart is bursting with happiness that the Supreme Court sided with reason, rationality and love: Marriage is now legal for everyone, everywhere in the United States. States cannot ban same-sex marriage. I can't wait to tell my kids about this momentous day one day, and for them to roll their eyes and be like, "You're so old, Mom. Obviously anyone who wants to get married should be able to! How were you even alive when that wasn't allowed? Wasn't that, like, in the Dark Ages?"View Article


Ina Garten’s Outrageous Brownies (WITH SALTED CARAMEL)

June 25, 2015 2:47 pm Published by 2 Comments

Since the last recipe I shared was for a healthy diet smoothie and I am all about balance, yin yangs, feng shui and all that, I figured it was time to share a treat! And this recipe for Salted Caramel Brownies is the best treat I have had in recent memory. My friend Christie, the insanely talented chef behind Pardon My Crumbs, baked them for my bachelorette party and everyone went wild over them. I think this little story alone tells you just how delish they are: My friend Kim (who shared the above stated diet smoothie recipe and looks like THIS), took one bite of a brownie and, without any irony, looked up and said "Is THIS what I've been missing?!" Yes, Kim. This IS what you have been missing...View Article

I am SO.EXCITED. to share "The Declutterate," a parody of "The Graduate" that appears in the Bad Moms In Movie History web series for HGTV's ulive.
