I Need a Makeover! The De-Frumpinization of @juliejulie


I have to fess up: I take a lot of pictures of myself for this blog, but usually only post the good ones (except when I let you see my bad hair on purpose!) So, some of you who don’t know me in real life, may think I’m a bit more…uh…less frumpy than I really […]

Gray Hair Angst: Time to Dye, Again


“Now that you’re well, let’s talk about your hair,” she said over eggs and toast at the diner. “I like it better not gray.” This is what best friends are for, right? I will not put you through the torture of a vote for or against dye or no dye this time, dear readers, although I […]

Conan O’Brien Wears Jeggings, Should You?


Jeggings are a ridiculously bad idea, even for a jokester like Conan O’Brien, who danced around on stage wearing them the other night. Okay, it was a funny stunt, but to watch, for uh, a couple of reasons. Conan should not wear jeggings in public ever again. Neither should I. Should you? Here’s my […]

Getting my Groupon: Why Google should buy me


Google offered to buy Groupon for $6B today, and Groupon said no. I think Google should buy me, since they obviously have some extra cash now. Here are the top five reasons Google should buy me: I can get my group on. I’m good at starting groups. I started Chubby Mommy Running Club in Eugene […]

Me as a 7 Year-Old Fashionista: Do These Shorts Make Me Look Fat?


My sister found this picture and posted it on Facebook. I remember this day. It was Ida Paterson Elementary School’s annual field trip to the Oregon Coast. I’m pretty sure I was in 2nd grade. I loved these shorts. I also loved Robbie, the cute blond boy on my left. I do not think he […]

Pigs in a Blanket and the Day My Skirt Fell Down at Rockefeller Center


We went to Ye Olde Pancake House for this week’s Sunday Morning Marriage and Breakfast Review. We haven’t been there since 1995. It looks exactly the same.

Shop in the Street, Meet New Friends


I met Jean in the street in front of my hotel on Sunday. There was a street fair on Lexington Avenue, filled with stuff I didn’t know I needed. Some good stuff, some junk. And then, suddenly, a whole bunch of sweaters. The shopping instinct that I’d kept filed away all weekend caught a whiff […]

Goodbye Gray Hair! How I Lost Ten Years at Salon Nevaeh


When I told my friend Marcia that the internets decided that I should NOT let my hair go gray, she told me to go see *Debra. It’s good to have smart friends. Especially if they know a good stylist, and are willing to pass on her number. Debra just opened Salon Nevaeh in the Oasis […]
