Le Dîner en Blanc Paris 2018

Our fifth Dîner en Blanc was extra special because it was the 30th anniversary and Olivia joined us this year! I was fortunate to have Antz craft these gorgeous crepe paper peonies for my headpiece.

Joyeux Anniversaire Olivia!

Every year I am aghast by how fast our kid is growing up. This is her eighth year and she is lovely, polite, smart, kind, funny, clever, creative, sometimes annoying but overall rad. I can’t believe she is so big now. Liv wears size 10/12 in clothes and size 4 in shoes. I bought her… Continue reading Joyeux Anniversaire Olivia!

Dîner en Blanc Los Angeles 2015

Last year we waited and waited to hear the announcement for Los Angeles Dîner en Blanc but never heard anything. Lucky for us, we were able to attend the DEB in Paris.

Nickelodeon Friends & Family Carnival

As if one carnival wasn’t enough, Saturday was round two of games, funnel cake, barber shop quartets, balloon hats, bouncy house, food, water gun fights and a crazy juggler. Nickelodeon really knows how to throw a party! Olivia was super excited to wear false eyelashes in rainbow, of course. I was calling her lil’ Phyllis… Continue reading Nickelodeon Friends & Family Carnival

Le Dîner en Blanc Paris, France 2014

One of the coolest things we did last year was attend the first ever Dîner en Blanc in Beverly Hills. Going to the White Dinner in Paris has been on my Life List for some time now so earlier this year I reached out to the organizers of the DEB, casually asking if I happened to… Continue reading Le Dîner en Blanc Paris, France 2014
