I’m Heading to Sunny San Diego for BlogHer

The day is here.  The day I've been looking forward to since I left New York in August of last year. But what makes this year even more exciting is my husband is coming along with me.  We are both super excited and can't wait to see what San Diego has in store for us. Since I'm not a BlogHer newbie this year, I think I'll be able to relax a little … [Read more...]

Me as the Voice of Piglet — Really!

During my recent trip to LA with the Disney/DreamWorks team for the Red Carpet Premiere of Cars 2, I had the opportunity to do something so amazingly cool that I still pinch myself to make sure I'm not just dreaming I was really there!

I Took A Time Out and I Feel Refreshed

This weekend, in case you didn't notice, I took a time out from the internet.  I enjoyed a full 48 hours neglecting my inbox, blog comments and social media to spend time with the family!

I’m Glad I Didn’t Make New Years Resolutions!

Seriously, I hate failing and that's the reason I did not make any New Years resolutions this year. Are there things that I need to change? Absolutely! In fact, the one thing that is bothering me more than anything is my weight.  Most people would look at me and roll their eyes, but I'm just not happy with me right now.

No Luck on the Home Front

Unfortunately, things aren't moving as fast as we hoped with selling our house, but we are optimistic that it will eventually happen.  I'm sure my dream home will be sold by then, but this is the main reason I told myself  not to even start looking.  Oh well -- life goes on, right?!?

Mommy Needs a Time Out

Somedays I wish I could go into an hour long or heck, even a day long time out to just sit all by myself and not be forced to answer a question, wipe a dirty butt or refill an empty sippy cup. Please tell me I'm not a horrible mother for thinking this way. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore my children and they mean the world to me. … [Read more...]

I'm sure y'all are going to get tired of me posting about my amazing experience in LA for the Red Carpet Premiere of Gnomeo & Juliet, but I found this video and you can see me pass behind Elton John and David Furnish right around the 20 - 22 second mark.  Totally cool, huh?
