Fall Kicks Off with “The Bar” and the SEC

Published on September 23, 2015

Tweet 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 […]


What I Did Over Summer Vacation

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 […]


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

Published on July 2, 2015

Tweet 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. […]


William Shatner Clangs Our Bell

Published on June 18, 2015

Tweet 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 […]


Caitlyn with a “C”

Published on June 1, 2015

Tweet Wow, this is a game changer across all playing fields. As unfathomable this is even to a person like me who has always had friends and colleagues who challenge gender roles, I look at it as a mother. Things will be really different on the playground now that a well respected Olympic decathalon winner […]


Summer Wedding Weekend in New Orleans

Published on July 8, 2014

Tweet Since I have been missing New Orleans an awful lot lately, I was thrilled to receive an invitation to a wedding from my friend Danette and her longtime love Randy. Met through mutual friends in Los Angeles, I’ve known Danette since I lived in New Orleans, where she brought her musician friend Phil (who […]


A New World with Melissa de la Cruz’s The Ring and The Crown

Published on February 28, 2014

Tweet A wonderful part of blogging is that one never knows where the road will lead, as with attending events – one is often not familiar with the host. I found this to be particularly true on Wednesday when I entered the Boardroom at the Peninsula to join a Royal Tea party to launch The […]


The REAL New Year has started, finally…

Published on January 22, 2014

Tweet 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 […]


Beverly Hills Kids Give Back

Published on October 10, 2013

Tweet . . I am so impressed with these kids I had to share. This precious little girl is six year old Sienna and she has cut her ponytail to give to Locks of Love. I told her mom Athena how amazing I think she is for such a heartfelt gesture. Athena tells me “We’re […]


Counting Blessings at Summer’s End

Tweet Thank you all for all your kindnesses, comforting comments and private messages with regard to my last post. Your support really has helped me to get back to the business of being me and taking care of my family. In loading these photos that might have been posted back in June, I realize how […]
