My Own Personal Lemonade (or How Beyonce Helped Me With My Broken Heart)

November 7, 2016 12:31 am Published by 2 Comments

My dear friend Flo is a hilarious, loyal, big-hearted, bubbly gal from New Zealand who also happens to be a crazy talented singer-songwriter. If you like Joni Mitchell, Jewel, or Taylor Swift, you will LOVE her. She went through a really difficult breakup last year and turned it into this really gorgeous gift of music. I asked her to write a guest piece because with that music she wrote, she is now in the top 40 (of 9,000 people) in a VVVV important competition (think online "American Idol"), and if she wins, she will get to record a 4-song EP with RedOne, perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and get $25,000 hot cash money. There is no voting. All you have to do is watch her videos, which is a win for you, too, because they're amazing. Let them be the soundtrack to this beautiful guest piece on heartbreak.View Article


Two Peas Inc.’s Tomato Avocado & Egg Salad Stack

When Tony and I were deep in the trenches of our move/home remodel, we were without a kitchen for two months. My plan was to get take-out from Taqueria Escuela and Jon & Vinny's every night (and morning and afternoon), but then Tony told me we'd probably get heart disease if all we ate was tacos, pasta and pizza for 60+ days (I said at least we'd die happy, but I was vetoed.) So, while we waited to have a working sink, stove and oven, we decided to order a healthy meal delivery service from Two Peas...View Article

Do you subscribe to theSkimm? If not, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE? Oprah reads this newsletter on the daily and so do I, and I really can't think of a better endorsement than that. It's an email blast with the latest news sitting in your inbox every AM when you wake up. Each story is contained and written cleverly - it's like if your super smart, funny, sassy friend called you every morning to give you the scoop on what's happening in the world, and is just long enough to get you through the line at Starbucks...View Article


My Parents’ Trip to Japan

September 22, 2016 4:36 pm Published by 4 Comments

I left the house for the first time last night since Sunday and wrote "September 9, 2016" on a check today. But my parents are living it up in Japan - and since I have nothing in my own life to share with you today, I thought I would share their amazing pictures instead. Despite the fact that my dad doesn't like fish or rice, they look like they're having the best time. I'm told (by everyone) I have enough dogs, but I would really love it if they could bring me a monkey home...View Article
