Published on September 9, 2015

Tweet In two days the Critter will have been back to school for an entire month, yet in my mind I cannot end summer until after Labor Day. We had exactly two months of summer this year and it just was not enough! It seems that it only just started, and now I’m reflecting upon […]

Rock School rocks out with Dave Stewart at AnQi

Published on September 19, 2010

Tweet Back to school is the theme of my life this week. Sunday was Rock School, Monday was preschool. I joke that I can just as easily raise a successful rock star as I can as a successful banker or lawyer – if you have a child that shows talent in music it’s all in […]

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 […]

A Fresh Outlook

Published on January 5, 2009

Tweet Lord has it been a MONTH? I have most diligently updated my “Alexandra Out and About” section ( see? on the right there?) so that you have at least some idea of what’s been going on here in the ‘hood. I have to be honest, dear reader, I have just had other priorities this […]

Weekend in the ‘Hood…

Published on November 10, 2008

Tweet …was mostly NOT in the hood. You know I hate the freeway. My Perfect Husband always jokes that I practically will drive through people’s backyards to shortcut. I realize that millions of people hop on the freeway many times a day and think nothing of it, but for me it’s a Voyage, requiring much […]

Weekend in the hood

Published on September 23, 2008

Tweet Bah, Critter had the croup for the third time last week, so my posts were few. We did manage to attend two noteworthy events on Sunday. My very fabulous designer friend Carlos Alberto of The Skyline Studios was chosen to create a model unit at EVO South. The much-anticipated LEED certified highrise community opened […]

Published on March 25, 2008

Tweet The first day I worked at the glamorous Wilson and Associates office in Beverly Hills, I was asked to copy an entire specification book for a High Roller Suite of the MGM Mansions. It took all day and I was bored stiff. I was a good little copier, though, and I learned an awful […]

Published on March 18, 2008

Tweet Ah it’s that time of year again, as evidenced by the arrival of the invitation to the always fabulous Kneedler Fauchere for a reception after the Jack Lenor Larsen event… I can remember the first day I ever entered the Pacific Design Center. I was an intern working for Trisha Wilson and Associates in […]
