Same Page Monday

I’m in trouble.  Another tardy blog post.  Boss Lady Caroline busted me this morning.  I apologize to all of you who missed not being on the same page yesterday and had to wait till today.  I hope your whole week wasn’t thrown off on account of me.  I just got back yesterday from a weekend in San Francisco.  I will now get you all on the same page.

1.  It was Grace’s 80th Birthday last week!  The whole family gathered together in Northern California this past weekend to celebrate.  Happy Birthday to our sweet Grace!  (The picture on the right is of Grace and little Billy, our dad… 60 years ago.)


2.  Here I am, waiting for Emily and Steve to arrive at the airport last Friday… I might have a new career in chauffeuring, if the whole acting thing doesn’t work out.  I waited there with my Milly & Grace Girls post card with all those drivers with signs.  Waiting.  And waiting.  About 20 minutes after the first Red Sox hat sighting (which means the plane from Boston has deplaned), Em and Steve walked out.  I was the only “driver” left by the time they got there… because Em had to stop and get Pinkberry…

3. MISSING SILVER SHOE SPOTTED AT SFO.  ONE LONELY SILVER SHOE AT BAGGAGE CLAIM 3.  From Virgin America flight 905 from VEGAS to SFO.  It must have been a crazy week in Vegas.  A women with a glove on came and removed it from the carousel.  If you recognize your shoe, please call the following number, 650.763.5146.   Thank you.  Note:  Be careful while packing, people.  Don’t let this happen to your shoes.


4.  The Core Four stopped by our old house in Danville, CA.  It was the first house we built.  I was four months old when we moved in and 3 years old when we moved out.  Patty and Bill hand picked that big Japanese Maple tree that is still in the front!   So many memories.


You are probably wondering who the Core Four is…well it’s the name for our original family… the family before Caroline showed up 7 years after me!  (We still love you, Caroline!!)

5.  For some reason, we were just not “on” this weekend.  We had some major posing fails.



6.  Thanks to Emily, we had the following song stuck in our heads the whole weekend.  “What do you do when you got a cute puppy?   What do you do when you got a cute puppy?  You love ’em, you kiss ’em, you cuddle ’em too.”  Annoyingly catchy.  Obsessed much?

7.  The Patriots pulled out a win over the Dolphins on Sunday.  And the Red Sox are 3 and 2 in the World Series!! (After some crazy games.) They are heading home to Boston to claim the Championship.

8.  Oh and this happened last week.  Lady Gaga + Giant furry headpiece = ….. there are just no words……

Same Page Monday

1.  The Milly & Grace Girl’s Saturday Nights courtesy of Instagram… I’m sure you can guess whose is whose!


^ So Nantucket local.   Tag line: “I’d rather be shucking.”


^ So LA.


^ So college student in Switzerland.  “These cozy socks really help me study.”

2.  Emily claims that her hair is thicker due to her increased intake of avocados.

3.  I’m still jealous of Emily’s Saturday night on Nantucket.  That JCrewesque catalogue photo made me want to pick up everything in LA and move to Nantucket.

4.  Picture of Ivy in her first sweater!!


^So Nantucket puppy.

5.  It’s beginning to look a lot like the season for my favorite movies – Love Actually, You’ve Got Mail, The Family Stone and The Holiday.  They will be on repeat soon enough.

6.  I can’t hear Miley’s Wrecking Ball and not cry.  It’s really bad.  Especially when they play it at the gym and I start tearing up.  It’s embarrassing on all levels.

7.  This is the 5th Same Page Monday.

8.  Patriots lost to the Jets in overtime.  I mean, it doesn’t get much worse than that.

9.  Red Sox are going to the World Series!!! I mean, it doesn’t get much better than that! GO SOX.

10.  For the Non LA people… this will give you an idea of some of the crazy things they are casting for in LA.  I’m not quite sure how I feel about the following casting notice… To submit or not submit: that is the questions!


^So LA.

This is how I read it… Did you ever dream of being so broke that you had to become a stripper?  Your only hope is to go on dates with guys for money?  Maybe Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti, needs to go with another angle!  Tempting but no.  NOT SUBMIT.
