  1. It’s COLD here! I know, I know. Everyone’s making fun of us in LA. But seriously, one day last week it was 37* when I left for work! That’s cold no matter where you live!
  2. I bought my first menorah last week! Irving’s Jewish so I want Adele to grow up with both traditions! I have no idea what I’m doing, but next year, we’ll be lighting some candles! And since it is my first, I got the bedazzled one with Swarovski crystals, because… why not? It was on clearance since it was the day after Hanukkah… plus with my coupon it was a steal of deal. Let the multi-faith celebrations begin! (next year…)
  3. I’ve been listening to this over and over again. It’s incredible!
  4. Tonight, we’re having a funeral for almost our our rubber duckies in the tub. This happened. Gross!
  5. I had been having some sciatic pain over the past year, and things just didn’t feel right. I had an xray to see what’s up. I thought it was a herniated disc (and I actually still do), but it’s being caused by an extreme curve that is pinching all my nerves there!

The left image is my lower spine. And the right image is what it’s supposed to look like. Yikes! Luckily physical therapy has been going well. I’m optimistic.

Feels like Spring! March 2, 2012

To be fair, practically every day in winter feels like Spring in Los Angeles. But today was especially gorgeous out. I took a lunchtime walk around the block and felt amazing.

I think baby loved the fresh air too, he/she has been kicking all afternoon! Happy Friday!


Mountains of Snow! February 1, 2011

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!


A little Behind… December 30, 2009

I know I’m like 2 weeks behind on posts… but they’re coming, I promise….

Right now I’m debating going for a run, but my thin Los Angeles blood isn’t prepared for this:

I am totally making up excuses, but -1*? That’s crazy! I’d need to go out there with a full-on facemask and sub-zero bubble jacket! That is just not conducive to running. I’m such a baby.
