    Hi, friends! My day started bright and early with a knock on my hotel room door from Monica, who arrived on a red-eye flight from California just 30 minutes earlier. I thought she might want to sleep after a long cross country flight, but she rallied for an early morning run. Monica said running helps […]

    Rise and shine, it’s time for yoga with Martha Stewart! My day started bright and early at Theodora’s apartment. We were both invited to a yoga event with Martha Stewart this morning, so I spent the night on her couch (Theodora’s not Martha’s) last night. At 6:30 AM, we hopped in a cab to Grand Central […]

It was definitely a treat to dine there. The dinner was hosted in a private room at the back of […]

    Wow. What a crazy-awesome day. Never in a million years did I think I’d end up on television for a batch of healthy cookies that I baked. I love how random/unpredictable my life is sometimes. Hey, I’m just going with it! 😉 Yesterday morning, Theodora and I dressed in our holiday best, freaked out with […]
