Happy one year in L.A. to me!


I was home alone this weekend which led to watching lots of Kardashians with Gus (what can I say, he LOVES those girls) and somehow ended up watching Friends on Nick-at-night for the first time in probably 5 years. It made me realize that I need to watch the entire series again, because unlike the first time i was watching it in 1997, I can now completely relate to it. As in.. I am fairly sure some of this show is based on my life in New York. 

I loved becoming an adult in New York, but it is such a unique place to grow, and live on your own for the first time. It is so cheesy but anytime I run into post- New Yorkers here in LA, it never fails to come up in conversation "once you live in New York..." and it is true. once you live there, you can make it anywhere. (Talk about a great way to set up expectations for the rest of your life, everything was easy after 25!)

I moved to Los Angeles one year ago as of tomorrow. I spent one last September 11 in NYC, and visited the still in-progress new tower, and sent all of my positive wishes for New York into the universe. 

I Love You NY,

Thank you for making me who I am and for being so wonderful.


Happy Friday

It has been the kind of week where you need a weekend just to sleep and catch up with life. It has been a busy one, but here are some of the highlights that I caught via phone photo.

[ matching sharpies & post-it notes. its the little things ]
 [ prepping for Fashion Week & Fashion's Night Out ]
 [ Hot date at the Santa Monica Pier ]
 [ an extra snuggly puppy + my favorite jeans ]



There are few things better than magical twinkly nights full of little boys in fancy clothes and friends celebrating love.



I have literally nothing to report from this week.
Monday-Wednesday have been pretty much wiped clear from my memory, just a few groggy flu bugish snippets of either a boy or puppy cuddling me in bed.

I did attempt to go in to work on Wednesday morning.
the universe sent me back to bed right quick with an earthquake that shook downtown LA and evacuated our building. Marching up and down the 2 flights of stairs in 90 degrees was too much for sick Becky, so I turned around and went right back to bed.. for the rest of the day.

The best, brightest part of the whole week was accidental video feed on a planned Skype date. Nothing nothing nothing in the world cheers me up like seeing my girls laughing happy faces.

I made a giant pot of chicken soup, which I ate one bowl of, I cant even look at it now.

I am back to work today for a few hours, I am already feeling droopy, but I had to get out of the house for awhile, I was starting to get a little crazy. There are only so many Kardashian episodes that one girl (and dog) can watch in a day.

Have a wonderful weekend, don't forget to take your vitamins.

And for any other ex-New Yorkers
