It's a shoot week for me which basically means my room is a mess and I'm drinking real cokes, a ton of coffee and pretty much anything and everything. It's like I've made up some justification that when I'm on a shoot, I have free reign to eat as much junk food as possible. I eat things that I would never eat on my non-shoot days - and that's pretty much the other 70% of my life, give or take a percentage or two because I'm not really counting. A shoot week also means I'm stressed. No matter how big or small, I never get a good sleep the night before the first day. So, when it comes to the last day, I need to detox and do something to relieve stress. And a big stress reliever for me is laughter. I love SNL, Portlandia and the good sit-coms, but I also love stand-up. For some reason though, I had never been to Zanies, a comedy club in my neighborhood until a bestie invited me a few months ago. We were in the audience for the filming of a new reality show on the OWN network called, My Life is a Joke. You can see me getting out all that stress in this lovely shot of me with my mouth open. Yep, that's me, catching my two seconds of fame...and downloading all those worries. Snap. The comics were really funny - you should check out the show.

At some point, my sweet two year old and I started calling each other besties. She has other besties too, like her wa-wa's (aka grandmas), her favorite sitters, sometimes her brother, and other "friends" that live in her crib. One day she received a pair of pink leopard print rain boots and that night she insisted on sleeping with her new goodies....they were brand new, of course, and hadn't been worn. She snuggled those boots like a worn out loved teddy bear. This blog is to keep track of all my besties and pink leopard print wellies. xo
