I'm still recovering from quite the fun-filled weekend, and it's not even over yet!

Thursday afternoon I joined Katie and her husband at a taping of The Ellen Show, thanks to our pal, Heather.
I got friends who have friends in high places

Our guests were Steve Carell (from The Office -- EEEE!) and Alison Sweeney (Biggest Loser host and Days of Our Lives star). The show airs Monday, and if you happen to tune in, you might be able to spot us in the row behind the row Ellen dances through.

After lots of dancing at the show, I headed to Heather's parents' for an all-night viewing party of the royal wedding.

We ooohed and ahhhed over the gorgeous wedding party, and had fun cracking ourselves up in person and over Twitter.

I was a bit punch-drunk and silly from sleep deprivation, as you can see in my tweets below.

I was outta my mind by the end of the night.

(Five gold stars if you got that last reference.)

Friday I tried to recover from our all-nighter, and then yesterday we woke up bright and early to join Team Maddie at the March of Dimes' March for Babies near USC.

I was happily surprised that the tutu I made for Em last year still fit this year.

After the March, we headed to USC for the LA Times' Festival of Books, where Em enjoyed the 'SC marching band.

Hope you've all had a great weekend!


  1. You look so tiny in the first picture! So jealous that you got to see Steve Carell!

  2. My weekend was amazing.

    You were definitely not alone in your punchiness/loopiness by the end of the wedding. :)

    So glad I go to be there with everyone! It was great to see you, B, and Em again, and actually TALK to you this time.

  3. Super cute! Your daughter is precious!

  4. You look so awesome! I love your necklace! Em is of course adorable as always in my favorite color. :-)

    PS- I laughed so hard at that last tweet!

  5. I get no gold stars. Dang it. Love the bracelet- what a thoughtful gift! You look great and I love the wedges. Every time you wear them, I think "I gotta get some cute wedges like that. Or at least some cuter sandals than I have now." I haven't yet but I will one of these days!

  6. It was so great seeing you, B and Em last week!! I had so much fun the entire week/weekend. See you again soon!

  7. what a full, busy, fun-looking weekend!

    it was super fun live-tweeting the royal wedding with you :)
