Shopping for a great cause!

With 2 growing kids I’m at the grocery store ALL the time! So, I can appreciate a bargain!

I was happy to attend the 300th opening celebration of Grocery Outlets in Inglewood. Not only is the store full of fresh & healthy foods at great prices BUT they are also committed to giving back to the community.

It was my pleasure to present a check to a wonderful Inglewood organization called “All for One”. They work with children to help build character through social programs which emphasize the importance of personal growth as well as the development of the community as a whole.

In Defense of Barbie

STOP BULLYING BARBIE!

barbie

Every so often it happens..and here we go again! People gang up and blame the world’s problems on the sweet, loveable and hard working…Barbie!

Of all the babes in toyland I have no idea why poor Barbie takes so much heat!

First they say she’s too thin, too sexy, to full of make-up and now….wait for it….she will crush your children’s dreams. Yes folks,  apparently an 11.5  inch plastic doll can ruin lives.

What’s a girl to do?

The latest attack comes from a new report out of Oregon State University that says girls ages five to seven who played with barbies had suppressed career ambitions.(Granted it was a very small study with only a small group of girls. People usually leave that part out.)

Researchers in this study found the toy that encouraged individuality, confidence and equality was…MRS. POTATO HEAD. Mrs. Potato head? Really? Come ON people. No disrespect to the spud but the poor thing is so lost that half the time her nose is where her eye should be. It’s no contest.

Want to talk ambition? What other woman do you know that has over 130 careers on her resume? I dare you to name another gal who’s been a surgeon, a vet, an aerobics instructor, and run for president! She’s gone to the moon for crying out loud! She’s also mastered one of the toughest jobs of all… motherhood. She’s given birth to countless children including, Skipper. No easy task when your lady parts are made out of plastic! All this while looking great, taking care of a dream house and being a loving wife to Ken. So there.

Girl works her plastic butt off. Stop bullying Barbie!

Grace’s Mom

Today I introduced the newest member of our family, Grace Louise, to my Good Day LA family and all of you. I’ve had many TV accomplishments in my life but I have never been prouder than today when I was introduced as “Grace’s Mom”.

Gracie Newborn

I have had so much fun sharing my pregnancy & now my little girl with all of you. Your well wishes & outpouring of support has meant the world.My husband and I just can’t believe Grace belongs to us & we get to keep her forever. Motherhood is beyond my wildest dreams. I have never felt so blessed and so grateful in my whole life.

Adoring Parents

I’m enjoying my time off so I can just love on my sweet little angel & hang out in our PJs all day! But I’ll be back to work in a few weeks! If I didn’t have so much stinkin’ fun at GDLA & love my co-workers SO much…I’d  be tempted to stay home forever! But something tells my all of these beautiful girly outfits aren’t going to pay for themselves!

I’ll be in touch! I’m not far away. I’m updating all the time in all the usual places. Just think of all of the fun projects & adventures Gracie & I will get into!

Now back to my most important job today & everyday….being “Grace’s Mom”.
