Shift Happens

Published on September 25, 2015


Today I’m at a conference that my friend Leah founded and graciously invited my Diet Coke swigging self to attend. I met Leah about six(!) years ago at a blogger event and I was impressed by her story of having lost one hundred pounds and keeping it off by eating organic and nonGMO foods.

Fall Kicks Off with “The Bar” and the SEC

Published on September 23, 2015


One of the things that I’ve always loved about Beverly Hills is that it’s not obsessed with football. I chose a husband for this reason – during the year of courtship well into the first years of our marriage, I was blessed to call back home and tell my friends who are football or deer [...]

What I Did Over Summer Vacation

Published on September 9, 2015


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 what [...]

Triple Attraction in ATX – Friends, Fun, and PBS Kids

Published on July 2, 2015


I love that my married life and motherhood have begun to have annual traditions. The springtime months are always a whirlwind – April brings Easter and My Perfect Husband’s birthday with the Critter’s birthday immediately after, then Mother’s Day, and then I travel to a different city every year for the PBS Annual Meeting. I [...]

William Shatner Clangs Our Bell

Published on June 18, 2015


Were you wondering why I was having lunch with William Shatner last week? Let me tell ya, he is an ICON. Not since I posted this picture of the lovely Dahm Triplets have I gotten such feedback! Funnily, the first thing people would say after “William Shatner? For real? Awesome!” would be “what are y’all [...]

Art Catching Up to Life

Published on May 16, 2015


I’ve been obsessed with Instagram this year and how easy it is to post my latest moments in time. If you’re missing my longer musings, don’t worry; My Perfect Husband slipped a new MacBook Pro in my carry on as I left for Austin, and it makes blog posts really easy. I love that the [...]

Feeling ODD and Grateful in the ‘Hood

Published on November 26, 2014


Fall is my favorite time of year – I’m starting to learn that there’s a certain amount of hullabaloo that the Critter and I have to go through the first month of school and once we get the hang of everything in his new grade, including all his extracurricular activities, teacher meetings, open houses, volunteer [...]

The REAL New Year has started, finally…

Published on January 22, 2014


I can’t ever get my act together in the New Year until I get through the PBS Winter Press Tour, which, for me is a biannual week of joining my fellow PBS Kids VIPs together with the Television Critics Association to review the new season’s offerings from PBS. Yesterday I hugged Abby Cadaby, Count von [...]

Wow, Thank You CBS LA – I’m honored!

Published on September 21, 2013


I was so surprised and honored to find that CBS LA has named me as a mom to follow in order to navigate momhood in Los Angeles. Liz Peterson reports that I am in some seriously helpful company – I don’t know if I’m worthy! Thank you Liz, Thank you CBSLA!

For the Love of Cookie, it’s Season 44 on Sesame Street!

Published on September 15, 2013


I have been saving this fun video I took at the PBS Press Tour in August so I can share it in celebration of the newest season on Sesame Street – welcome number 44! The Critter, Cookie, and I talk about cookies, family, friends, neighbors, and…self control. Noting how quickly we can point to a [...]
