Published on June 12, 2011

Tweet As we rolled down the hill from Greystone Mansion and away from the Kidstock 2011 Music and Arts Festival, in spite of the fact that The Critter was furious and thrashing that he didn’t want to leave, my Perfect Husband remarked “Well honey, that didn’t suck nearly like I thought it would – high […]

A little reminder to keep the energy levels up!

Published on April 18, 2011

Tweet As you know from my previous post, I am a “Team Mary” member in the Man/Woman of the year campaign to fight blood cancers. The campaign does not end until May 13th, and honestly, with all the holidays, birthdays, school events of the season have me so busy that I was getting a little […]

Published on February 4, 2011

Tweet We all love to have a proper tea in the afternoon sometimes – it’s one of the most civilized ways to socialize on the planet. Whenever I’m asked where to find a proper English tea, I always say go to The Living Room at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. It’s one of the loveliest places […]

Diving into Movies and seeing stars at the Beverly Hilton

Published on August 4, 2010

Tweet Some things are quintessential Beverly Hills, and those are the things I really enjoy.

All these were rolled into one evening under the stars at the Aqua […]

Michael Jackson’s kids and family sign commemorative belt

Published on May 29, 2010

Tweet When Michael Jackson died I recounted my sadness and recalled that it was much like the day Elvis died. Again the similarities are eerie in the news that a blinged out limited edition commemorative belt has been designed by Simon Tavassoli of bbsimon of Newport Beach. The first belt has the distinction of the […]

Letting the pictures do the talking…

Published on May 21, 2010

Tweet I honestly think that this time of year is busier than any. We have LOTS of birthday parties to attend, since the Critter’s buddies were all born around the same time, and the weather is so nice I start to think about the summer wardrobes for our family. I’ve also been working on a […]

The year 2007 forever changed May 5th

Published on May 5, 2010

Tweet It’s a great coincidence that the PBS Super Sisters’ Great Day of Gratitude would fall on this day. The Sisters have slated the day for their momblogger friends to share their gratitude with their kids’ teachers. Since we won’t have an official teacher until preschool next year, I would like to dedicate this year’s […]
