Swimming With Toddlers

makes me happy.


Pool's open, the weather is finally getting smokin' hot, and we be swimming... doesn't it look super relaxing?!?

Why don't we just lather them up in oil? It would make it that much easier!

Choosing Wisely

makes me happy.


Yesterday afternoon Kevyn, Byrdie and Cashius saw me off to work by walking me to the subway.

From there Kev took them to the park and as he walked away smiling, pushing the stroller, walking the dog, being a great dad, I thought... now that's one hot piece of meat.


And he makes cute kids too!

Have a most excellent weekend.

Tonight's Work

makes me happy.


Tonight I worked Jeanne Beker's launch party for her new book Finding Myself In Fashion.


Which was awesome because I totally love Jeanne Beker and have probably been watching her show Fashion Television for the entire 25 years it's been on the air.


Definitely fun and inspiring to be there,


and I got to see some rad fashions,


and the people I served were very gracious and polite.


Basically, just another dope day at the office.

Oprah

makes me happy.


Here's something Oprah said today that I dug...


"Understanding that one principle that everybody wants to be heard, has allowed me to hold the microphone for you all, all these years, with the least amount of judgement.


It's helped me to stand and to try and do that with an open mind and do it with an open heart.


It has worked for this platform and I guarantee you it will work for you on yours.


Try it with your children, your husband, your wife, your boss, your friends.


Validate them.


I see you.

I hear you.

What you say matters to me."

Two Videos

make me happy.



I shot the video above on Monday evening of our long weekend.

It makes my heart melt.

I saw this video today around 4:30 pm.

It made me laugh.

If you have a husband it'll probably make you laugh too.

Getting 'er Clean

makes me happy.


Our pool looked like this at the beginning of the weekend.

But by the end...


it looked like this!

Hope you're long weekend was as productive fun as ours.

Warmish Evenings

make me happy.


I totally blew my Mom Uniform theme week when I made last minute plans with my girlfriend Mary last night to hook up for dinner.

So be it. The weather was finally fabulous after 4 days of rain, catching up with Mary was something I've been looking forward to doing for a while, and...


Kev was already downtown at a Jay game with his dad so I knew a later night hook up would be in store.


I thought it was a pretty perfect evening.

Kev thought 5 more degrees in temperature would have made it perfect.

But then I wouldn't have wanted to wear his shirt.

So like I said, perfect.

The Quick Switch

makes me happy.


The other super awesome thing I can do with my Mom Uniform is...


swap out the track pants for jeans and "BAM!"


A totally acceptable mall outfit.


Note - I'm guessing this won't be the last time they two will be asking for "More money! More money!" while trolling the shopping mall with us.

Chefing To Stretching

makes me happy.


My Mom Uniform, great for making our Big Salads,


doing the back kicks,


working the declines,


and rockin' the spider man.

Am I selling you on it yet?

My Mom Uniform

makes me happy.


This is it. The outfit I pretty much wear a variation of everyday.

White tank top, long sleeve shirt over it, and some sort of yoga, track, or legging type pant.

I can do a lot in this outfit. A LOT I tell you!

Maybe I should just go ahead and show you.

To be continued...

The Sweetest Music To My Ears

makes me happy.


When I go out with Kev I always enjoy...


getting out of my mom uniform,


taking fun photos,


and enjoying a meal that I didn't have to prepare.


But what I love most is... the laughing.

I LOVE the laughing!

Living The Dream


I believe patience plays a HUGE factor in one's level of happiness.


I can say with total conviction, I have a lot of it.


It was something I was either born with or taught at a very young age because it would be hard for me to recall a time when I didn't have it. I mean, I'm certainly sure that there was a day when I had less but, I've never been Sally I Must Have, Do, or Say It Now.

I feel lucky in that way.


And thanks to these patience I speak of, I'm actually really enjoying the fact that our process has slowed down.

Basically we change something. Live in/with it. Think about it. Talk about it. Pull out the tape measure about ten times. Then...


execute the next change.

And when I say we I really mean I and they.

I live, think, talk and measure.

And they pretty much do.

Psssst - thank you!

Note - This post completely disappeared when I put up today's post, hence the re-post. What's up with that?

Jack White & The Foggy Dew

make me happy.


"Never take more then you need."


I believe I heard Tom Shadyac say that on Oprah the other day.


I like it.

A lot.


Unless of course if it pertains to friends.
