This weekend, I took Adele to a neighborhood Christmas Stroll and one of the stores brought in real snow for the kids to play with! It was actually wet and cold and could even be formed into snowballs! Adele was totally into it!


Even though her little hands were shaking because they were so cold, she refused to put her snowball down!



Snow in LA! Even if it was on just one street corner, it was still pretty special!

This morning, I tried to get a bit of upper body strength in. I put on the Today Show and got down to business with my 5lb weights:

  • Rows 15×2 each
  • Bicep Curls 15 x2
  • Overhead Tricep Dips 15 x 2
  • Pushups (girl style) x 20
  • Chest Press 15×2
  • Crunches x 50

The big story on the news today is all that snow the east coast is being pounded with. I just can’t believe all the bad weather they got over there this year. It’s already February and they are expecting another two feet of snow by tomorrow! The reporters keep talking about all the freezing temperatures across the country… and then they show LA and it’s 72, 74, 75, sunny, sunny, sunny. We live in a bubble out here.

My mom told me she can’t see her neighbors over the snowbanks, they just hold up their shovels and wave to each other that way. Hopefully they have an amazing spring and summer to make up for all this white stufff!

The Today Show screwed up today and they left Al’s microphone on too long and we could hear him saying “What? What should I say next? Who do I toss this next segment to? Matt?” I always think this is hilarious when it happens because I used to work in a newsroom. Anyways, happy Tuesday!


Guest Post: Snow Day on the East Coast January 25, 2011

My whole family still lives on the East Coast. Since I’m running around in shorts and a t-shirt lately, it’s hard to imagine all the cold weather they are dealing with back there! All I can think of is all the snow I had to shovel over Christmas and how annoying it is to de-ice your car before work. I don’t miss that at all! But my sister, Mikaela, is guest-posting today to show us the FUN side of snow days. Her pictures are so good that it almost makes me miss New England. Enjoy!


Sunday, January 23, 2011, my boyfriend Chris and I decided over breakfast that we would go snowshoeing up & around a park in our area.  The weather was beautiful and the sun was shining.
We got all our gear on and we were off.  Chris has never been snowshoeing before and I’ve only gone once so it really was a little adventure for the both of us!!!

Once we got to the top of the hill, we decided to trail a heart shape! awwee! 🙂

There is a castle in the park that is just beautiful in the winter

Then Chris wanted to lay down and make snow angels…so that’s just what we did!

Chris wanted me to capture some of his totally awesome skills….

So i wanted to copy him…but it didn’t work out so well!

We ended our snowshoeing adventure at the swing set, we’re just so fun!

Thanks, Mikaela!! Give her some comment love!

Last night, Irving and I had Friday night Date Night in Glendale. We started off with dinner at one of our favorite restaurants: Franks Famous Kitchen. If you haven’t been there, you have to check it out, it’s pretty awesome.

They had it decorated for Christmas and it was so cute!

Then we headed over to the Alex Theater to catch Warren Miller’s latest ski sensation: Wintervention!

It’s a two hour movie showcasing some of the best ski footage from the previous season. They traveled to Antartica, Norway, The Alps, Alaska, Colorado and Canada this year. It’s always entertaining and totally gives me the bug for a ski weekend.


We also scored this free Vail tank top. Pretty sweet, no? lol


And today? A full day of Christmas shopping. YAYYY!!!

Well, even if I can’t see it snow for real here in LA… at least it’s snowing in my gmail!

My email “theme” is set up to show the current weather. See a previous post here!

…. so it must be some kind of trick that today it looks like this!

At any rate, it made my day today!
