#HappyFriday! Thankful for a double-dipping workday. Two big firsts that have never ever happened in the history of my own little world today: 1) Wearing flats on-air @cbsla (gasp!) and 2) Shooting a celebrity-worthy #backtoschool segment for @enews... Without kids, I'd have never had the guts to wear flats on TV (and still feel confident) and organize snacks to rival Gwenyth Paltrow (in heels). And to think I thought my TV career would tank after becoming a mom... so relieved I was so wrong. Wishing you a fabulous weekend full of absolutely nothing! (Because that's what we have on tap right now!) #thefabmom
Anything happening lately that makes you wanna scream? Tonight's @cbsla 'FAB Mom' segment tackled kids seeing+talking about violence and how we (as #parents) must show no fear. Be strong, keep talking with our kids, reinforce family values. (Even if we're shaken too...) What are you saying -- or not saying -- to your kids about all this social unrest? (I'll try and nab the segment & post on my Facebook pages...) #thefabmom #cbsla
Every year I post the same darn picture... but I can't help it. (It's my favorite one!) Fun fact: My sister threw my veil into the air while standing out of frame to get it to float like that... Tonight we celebrated at our dining room table with steak, pasta, strawberry shortcake, princess gowns and our formal dinnerware -- which I'm still also in love with and use often, by the way. (Because if you don't use it, then what's the point?) #HappyAnniversary @drpanossian! ❤️ #thefabmom
It's here. #backtoschool Both babies are big girls now... and we feel fine. #thefabmom
Little did I realize it was #NationalDaughterDay when I took these (wacky) little women to the beach yesterday... my (wild) hearts. It's the last weekend before school starts... 😩 What fun are you smashing in? #thefabmom
#TGIF. Pooped. (You too?) Thankful for a workweek @cbsla & beyond. Thankful for wicked eye-candy @itayonacollection loaned me for fun. Thankful for friend/colleague @julianreyestv who is game to take inane pictures of me laying on couches at work for the sake of getting a goofy #instagram shot. School starts up again in a few days. Cheers to resting & recharging this weekend. What are you thankful for this week? #thefabmom #cbsla
A whole lotta everything popped today dishing about my book at @enews #DailyPop... Brace yourself, here goes: First, @iamcattsadler @mrjustinsylvester and the beautifully #pregnant @carissaculiner were GOOD WILD FUNNY FUN. (Thanks gang!) Second, if you'd have told me 15 years ago that my dream of being IN-STUDIO/ON-AIR at E! would happen because of a book I wrote about brand new motherhood, I'd have slapped you silly. Third, if you'd have told me that one of my very first producers, from my very first on-air job (@reelzchannel, 2007) who also incidentally gave me incredible wisdom, confidence and capability for my babies (sporadically between 2010-2013, when she was between jobs herself) would be the one to throw me on-air (at E!) years later to talk about my book that was only a pipe dream when she was an active part of my babies' lives.... I would've flat out laughed in your face. But I can't make this stuff up. 10 years ago I worked with a fantastic and talented producer, who then helped me cope and conquer life as a new mom, who then continued to work in TV while I stuck her 'baby-whisperer' advice in my book. And that's what popped today. Full circle. Life loop. THANK YOU @oneluckygypsy -- a special colleague, a good friend (as cited in my book!) and a damn fabulous advice-giver for all things mom+baby. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. #thefabmom #tbt #linkinbio
#BookLoversDay My favorite, most insightful/entertaining/helpful/clever reads for #moms to stay focused+fab in strategic order from the bottom up (#pregnancy through #college)... 💛 #thefabmom What are you reading these days?
