Same Page Monday

Well, hello there!  How have you all been?  I must apologize, on behalf of myself and my sisters, for dropping off the face of the world wide web.  Life happened to all three of us!  We got so busy that we had to take an unexpected break… but we missed it so much that we decided to come back!

So, let me get started on filling you in on what’s been happening the last few months…

1.  Patty (Our #1 fan) was not ok with our hiatus from the blog.

2.  I started a production company with this amazing group of guys.  They not only are inspired, creative geniuses, powerhouse actors and brilliant storytellers, but they all have the biggest hearts underneath their tough guy exteriors… It is the start of something special.

3.  I was cast by Terrence Malick in a tiny role in his upcoming movie, Knight of Cups, starring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett.  I play an actress playing Marie Antoinette… The trailer was finally released and I made it into the trailer!!  Now, let’s keep our fingers crossed that my scene with Christian Bale made the final cut!  The movie premieres this February at Berlinale.

Check out the trailer here…

4.  Emily and the Milly & Grace store had an amazing season last year!!  Thank you to every one of our lovely Milly & Grace girls who shop with us every year!  Emily and Patty have already been shopping up a storm for this next season the past two weeks… here they are (with Caroline) in NYC at the shows!

5.  Caroline is back in Malibu and back to school life… back to getting up early for classes…. on the beach!!!!!  Here she is with Hannah at their first surfing class….

None of us feel bad for her and her heavy school work load.  Just kidding… we are so proud of you and your hard work… and your straight A’s :)

6.  We are also SO PROUD of our little sister who just scored an internship with the amazing, celebrity wedding planner, Mindy Weiss!  Our cute little wedding planner in the making….

7.  I’m pet sitting my neighbor’s fish this week.  I’m kinda nervous about it.  I hate fish.  Fish were the only pets I was ever allowed to have growing up.  I would get really excited about getting fish from the pet store!  I would always get a white and an orange goldfish and name them Macaroni and Cheese.  Anyways, those fish never had a long life span in my hands… let’s all say a little prayer for this blue beta fish named, Sushi.

8. Patriots are going to the Super Bowl!!

9. A quote to ponder from MLK in MLK Day – “We must combine the toughness of the serpent with the softness of a dove, a tough mind and a tender heart.”

10.  Happy Same Page Monday!! Talk to you all soon! XOXO

Wedding Wednesday

Guess what, guess what?! It has actually begun to feel like Fall here in California (I hope that didn’t jinx it!) But, I actually had to wear jeans and long sleeves! That’s huge. I thought I would be wearing shorts until December. Yay! Now that it’s started to feel like Fall, it makes me even more excited for Fall and everything else that comes along with this glorious season. Like the mountains and cabins! That is where I’ve set this week’s Wedding Wednesday. And this table setting with those rich Fall-ish colors was the inspiration for the rest of this wedding I dreamed up! Here’s what I came up with:

Same Page Monday on Tuesday… Wait it’s Wednesday?

What day of the week is it?!?!

1.  I am so proud of my big sister.  She is an amazing older sister, successful business owner, awesome fashion curator, loving puppy mom…. and scalloper extraordinaire!!  LOOK!!! That’s a picture of her scalloping on the first day of recreational scalloping season!  #Badass

2.  It was Emily and Steve’s wedding anniversary last week too (the same day as the scalloping picture)!  I can’t believe it has been three years since that beautiful October day when our sister got to marry her childhood crush, the boy next door… the man of her dreams. I am tearing up right now just thinking about it…  We love Steve and that Hollister family so much.  We are so lucky and grateful to call them family!  I forgot to watch the video the other day (I am sure Patty watched it)… I am going to watch it now… watch along with me…

3.  Right now we are currently having a group text conversation about Patty’s Grandma name… NO ANNOUNCEMENTS YET!!!!!  We are just trying to be prepared.  It’s what we refer to her in regards to Ivy too… she is a puppy grandma! (Oh gosh.. we are those puppy people.)  We call her Pom Pom… for many reasons.  But I’ll just name two… POM.. are Patty’s monogram initials.  And she is our biggest cheerleader… hence Pom Pom.

Caroline:  Pom Pom is my vote.  Pippa isn’t a term of endearment.  It’s a different name.  Might as well call her Patty… Like let’s call me Jane from now on.

Patty:  You wouldn’t have wanted to tell your friends you were going to your Pom Pom’s house for Christmas!

Caroline:  I’ve thought about Coco as my name which are my initials.

Patty:  Well that makes sense.  And that’s more of a name and not an accessory for a cheerleader.  AHHHHHHHH!!! I don’t know what to do!!

SO, WE ARE NOW OPEN TO YOUR SUGGESTIONS!!! PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS AND IDEAS BELOW!!! NAME POM POM’S GRANDMA NAME!!

4.  Last night, in acting class, our beloved drink, MOTTO, made an appearance!!!  I was dying.  These two used the MOTTO bottle as a prop for a beer bottle!!  It was so LA!  I was/am so proud of our friend, Tom.  I was telling everyone about it.  It all started on our favorite little island… he used to whip up a batch at Em and Steve’s house… and now it has grown into something amazing!  Bravo!

“It’s just tea, man!”  (That green bottle is often mistaken for a beer bottle… Tim was even carded for it once! haha)

5.  One week and a day till our annual GIRLS GETAWAY WEEKEND!!!!  Last year, we went to Lake Tahoe!  Caroline wasn’t able to go because she was in Switzerland.  This year, the girls are headed to Florida to be with our Mom’s cousin Jo Ann!  We can’t wait.  This weekend was created by our amazing cousin, Shannon (who also designed this blog).  It was inspired by this amazing woman below… our Nanny… Milly!  We keep her legacy alive and celebrate her on this weekend together!  WE LOVE AND MISS YOU, NANNY BANANNY!

I love that Nantucket community/family so much!!  Miss you all and can’t wait to see you at Christmas! XO

I hope you are all having an amazing week so far.  Great catching up with you!  See you next Monday… for sure next Monday.  There once was a week that I thought about doing Same Page Monday on Friday because I didn’t get it together for Monday but I thought that would just be crazy.  Sorry it’s Wednesday!
