On Getting Sober

After drinking for 30 years, I never thought I’d be able to quit drinking. On January 1, 2016, I made the decision to live a sober life. I haven’t been vlogging or blogging since that day, as it’s been such a personal journey but I know that there are a lot of people out there who share in the same struggles I faced and still face today so I will be sharing my journey, slowly but surely.

how mindy kaling and tea bagging changed my life

Friends, I have a small obsession with all things Mindy Kaling (if you haven’t hopped on The Mindy Project wagon yet, I suggest you stop everything else in your life and start watching it stat–she play a doctor so get what I did there?!).  My recent vlog is about a random set of occurrences involving an audition I had for a new ABC show, tea bag(s) and a tweet by my girl Mindy that all conspired to sorta kinda change my life.

beat this heat with a kool tool

Holy Sweet Mother of Hades, it’s hot up in here right now.  As my 6 year old says, “Mom, it’s SMOKIN’ HOT!” Pretty sure she doesn’t realize the implications of saying something is “smokin’ hot” and I have no idea where she learned that phrase, but essentially, it’s true.

Friends, summer is only a few weeks away. And you know what that means (besides the fact that I need to hightail it to the nearest salon for a good pedi and maybe some tanning)? It’s time to bust out the white pants and sundresses. Even though my thighs are not in any condition to be in either, I’m gonna do it anyway thanks to my friends behind the latest (more…)

go green this earth day with ecoATM

This video was sponsored by ecoATM. All opinions and tips on being green are my own.

My video this week is a little public service announcements with my tips on how to be green ranging from the basic, “if it’s yellow, let it mellow–if it’s brown flush it down,” to a really important tip on how to help the number one growing segment of our waste stream–electronic waste.

You might remember a little TV news segment that (more…)
