GOOP Timeline


Light up goop logo

Gwyneth Paltrow's website/newsletter GOOP has hit its 10 year anniversary.  They sent out a GOOP timeline from its inception and it accurately shows how GOOP has evolved with the "laugh at our self" attitude that you wouldn't be aware of if you are a Gwyneth hater or have never listened to an interview of GP.  Imagine knowing that you are putting yourself out there and there are legions of people that just hate you for trying to do a good thing. It's always boggled my mind.  As you may know if you follow me on any platform, I was able to meet Gwyneth in person last December and it was a true highlight.  She was lovely in person and her little pop up operation was run with a tight grip, no room for error.  It was impressive.  Click here for the timeline link.

If you don't like Gwyneth and think you may be converted, try these links:

I kind of dare anyone to listed to all three and not walk away from them at least not hating her and most likely having an appreciation of her and her accomplishments.

LOVING GP,

The Ultimate Andy Cohen Experience

A couple of weeks ago, I traveled up to North Carolina to see Meg and the girls for her birthday.  Going to Statesville is one of my favorite destinations.  Meg's family's home is so fun, a large farm with all the trimmings.  Every morning a big breakfast is being prepared, there are always people in and out, lots of cousins running around, big comfortable guest rooms and excellent hosts that enjoy early evening chats in their formal living room.  When I arrived, I was so excited to see everyone, the girls seemed taller even though I saw them a month ago.

Friday was Meg's actual birthday.  After lunch in Statesville, we headed to Cornelius to her brother's house on the lake.  

We hung out there and got ready for our big night out in Charlotte.  We had VIP tickets to AC2-the Andy Cohen/Anderson Cooper show. We got the tickets in January and I have been dying for this day and my chance to actually meet Andy Cohen.  I had bought a black jump suit a month ago (Andy loves jump suits).  In anticipation of meeting them, I ordered books for Meg and I to get signed by both Andy and Anderson, we brought them with us, hopeful.

When we picked up our tickets and VIP lanyard, they told us they would come get us after the show. We got to our seats (2nd row on the right-so awesome) and just were dying that we were there.  


We started making friends and taking turns going back out to the bar for drinks.  Finally the show started and the two of them were so funny.  In between filmed videos, they talked about each other and their banter back and forth is so entertaining.  My favorite part is Andy (with love) mocking Anderson for being a Vanderbilt.  He kept teasing about how his childhood must have been.  It cracked me up.




Towards the end, they opened it up for Q & A and people scrambled to get in line to ask questions.   Some were so funny and it became very apparent that Anderson was very aware that 80% of the audience was there to see Andy and 20% to see him. He laughed about it and was a very good sport.  In our row alone, 6 of us were there because of Andy and one lone girl was a news junkie and OBSESSED with Anderson Cooper.

Then it ended and because we are rule followers and didn't know better, we sat still waiting to be collected for the VIP Meet and Greet.  Other people were more dialed in and they know to head to one side and wait for the door to open.  We finally figured it out and got in line where we made more friends...


The line snaked up some stairs and ended up on the back of the stage where the line formed to get to the step and repeat where the boys were.  It was all very organized but sort of slow.


Meg kept asking me what I was going to say and seriously I was stressed out thinking about it.  You could see they really were good at moving the people along so you don't really have time to have a conversation because honestly I could talk to Andy Cohen for hours about all the Housewives and Southern Charm and all my commentary about the shows.  Guess what, it went by in a flash.  I asked him if he helped the Housewives with their tagline and he said sometimes. I told him that he needs to help Tinsley with hers, she has had two bad ones and he totally agreed. 


 By the time I got those words out, both he and Anderson had signed my books and I was scooted along.


I went with KP since everyone mis-spells my name.

I told them it was Meg's birthday and they signed her books and she got a great picture as well.



Look at Andy laughing!  So darn cute.

So that was that...

We spent the night at the lake and hung out the next day.  At one point after Kelly's tennis match #11, we got her and Robb to go out with us for a late lunch.  That was the highlight!


The next day was Sunday, Father's Day.  Meg's Dad was at baseball games so the girls all went out to brunch.  It was so fun and a great way to round out our weekend.


As always, I had a blast and can't wait to go back.
Thank you Bob, Pam, Kelly, Robb and of course birthday girl Meg!

That Summer


"That Summer" has come out in select theaters and is available On Demand.  Narrated by Peter Beard, it shows the behind the scenes footage of the Beales and Grey Gardens.  There is lots of footage of Lee Radziwill and some voice over commentary by her as well.  If you liked Grey Gardens or are a fan of anything Kennedy, this is very entertaining.



This movie has the most on screen time of Lee that I have ever seen.  Her voice, so wispy and she is so patient with her family members who are living in dreadful circumstances smack in the middle of East Hampton.  A bit of the film deals with Ari Onassis and Jackie stepping in to help fund the renovation of their falling apart home.  The film also demonstrated just how big a part Lee had in Grey Gardens (the film) becoming a reality.  She is really the star of this film...amazing!

You can watch the trailer here.

Happy Memorial Day!

Finally, wallpaper!

My kitchen is in a holding pattern right now.  The walls are perfect and smooth and ready for the cabinets to be installed.  The cabinets, which have been ready since October, are being painted right now.  I guess it makes sense for them not to be painted before so they aren't sitting in a warehouse..I didn't ask any questions about that.  They are calling me next week to schedule the install.  That could mean next week or in a few weeks.  Just because I am ready doesn't necessarily mean that they are ready for me!

Once the cabinets are installed, I can finally finish choosing all the extras and one of the most exciting extras is wallpaper!  My cabinets are going all the way up to the ceiling so there is just right around both doors of my kitchen exposed.  So, I think I can choose even a busy print since it's such a small amount of space.  My kitchen will be all white but there will be a touch of blue thrown in, so the wallpaper I am looking for is blue and white..here are some pics so far.

If you know of a good wallpaper for this project, I am up for suggestions.  This weekend I am moving some things in my apartment into a storage unit.  I went back and forth about this forever but now am so glad I am doing it.  Should be interesting!

Obsessed with my kitchen walls,
