Sassy Pants Fat Girl

Sometimes there’s a sort of character that I play called Sassy Pants Fat Girl. Don’t get me wrong, when I say character, I don’t mean in a play or on TV. Though I would be happy to oblige should the need arise (I’m lookin’ at you, Matthew Weiner). No, Sassy Pants Fat Girl is a … Continue reading

One Hand In The Air For The Big City

One Hand In The Air For The Big City

New York New York truly is a wonderful town. Last week, me and the husby traveled across the country for a little well-deserved vacation in New York.

To Buy or Not to bai5?

Well, life continues to be busy for me this week. And while I do still eat from my fully stocked freezer, I’ll admit to dipping into my wallet and eating out in order to feed myself when needed. This week, it was a splurge dinner in between meetings to one of my favorite local restaurants … Continue reading

Fat Cow

Fat Cow

Yesterday I decided to treat myself to lunch. I had just gotten out of my improv class and had some errands to run at The Grove (which is an obnoxious word for “outdoor mall” here in LA) so I decided to check out some of the new restaurants there I’d been hearing about.
