Two Drinks - Two Sisters - Too Much

The Three Margaritas

Is there a better summer cocktail than a classic margarita? The combination of citrus, ice, and tequila is super refreshing on hot summer days (and nights). Our usual July 4 routine is to stick with chilled sparkling wine... but then my daughter's boyfriend showed up...

I Had a Work-Life Crisis (Part 2)

We'd all love to... but sometimes life gets in the way. So I decided to stay with the new job. It worked (sort of) well. While I had to make some adjustments, such as punching a time clock or spending an hour commuting, I also realized it would be going backwards to...

I Had a Work-Life Crisis (Part 1)

Found this old draft from 2014 that never went up. It was interesting for me to read, like therapy. I'll post an update next: It's interesting that I felt that last week was overall, a bad week. My husband thought it was a great week. And we were talking about the...

An Offer We Couldn’t Refuse

Last year, Linda and I hatched a vague plan to celebrate her birthday in Italy. And then we forgot - until I received this email: Subject: LAX or SFO to Rome: $200-$300 Round Trip I forwarded the email to Linda. Five minutes later, she called. "Is this for real?" she...

Hollywood: Both Sides of the Age Divide

This is the tale of my on- and off-again affair with Hollywood - both the industry, and the city of my birth. This post is made possible with support from AARP’s Disrupt Aging. All opinions are my own. Back in the 1960's, NBC used to run old feature films on weekends...

Playdates Are Not Just for Kids Any More

In late middle age, I've come to a realization: Playdates are not just for children. From the day my daughter was born, I lived my life according to her needs: Up by 7:00, race to daycare/school, get a few hours of work in or grab a coffee with the other moms, back...

Beef Stew Sunday

We're having a heat wave in Los Angeles. So why was my oven working overtime yesterday, slow-cooking beef stew, a dish best enjoyed in cold weather? Because my daughter asked me to. And my niece chimed in. And now that both girls are on their own, I do whatever I can...

Two Drinks Away: The Lifestyle App

Kim Kardashian West was one of the BlogHer 2016 keynote speakers this weekend, much to the chagrin of some old-time attendees who did not see how her brand of celebrity related to what we do as bloggers. Those folks were wrong. That was apparent when I tried to get...

Two Drinks at BlogHer

Linda and I are at the annual BlogHer conference for women who blog! And I actually wrote a post about it this morning - over at my original site, SoCal Mom. Read it here.

A Good Day’s Work May Never End

I kind of hope I'll always work. Let me clarify. I hope I'll always want to work and be healthy to work as long as I want. The idea of working forever, or at least a long time, has always appealed to me and makes a lot of sense. Of course, it's always nicer if you...
