Bea Coop

I mean really? Neiman Marcus is selling this Versailles-inspired Le Petit Trianon chicken coop for guess how much? Price tag $100,000. Yes, really. Your chickens will get to live in a custom-made multilevel home that includes a nesting area, a living room, a library filled with chicken and gardening books and a chandelier. I wonder if this comes with chickens that lay golden eggs, too?
Check out the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, Fantasy Gifts 2012.

Sexy Sneaks

Hmmmm, can't decide if this is a trend for me. But like these by Giuseppe Zanotti.



It's time to think about winter and staying warm living in Colorado. This shearling jacket is the perfect casual piece keeping me from wearing a down jacket everyday. I bought mine in brown-looks great paired with jeans and booties.

This is the best European skin care cream ever. I am using the BB cream and there is also The Lait-Crème Concentrè which many models use and stock up on while in Europe. You can find it at

It's Been Too Long

     Can it be true? The last time I posted was in 2010! We're in the last 3 months of 2012. So here I am with a new commitment to write more often. So much has happened in the last couple of years. The most important things? Getting pregnant in May 2010 and having a baby girl who is now 20 months old! AND getting MARRIED! We eloped to Maui and had a beach wedding, just the three of us.

Park City - Powder and Sun Dance

Currently Paul and I are visiting Park City, Utah. We were supposed to drive thru and maybe ski/ride one day on our way to Colorado, but we've decided to stay because the snow (or the "pow") is just too good to pass up, 17 inches in the last 48 hours, We've been here 3 days now.
Anyway, little did we know the Sun Dance film Festival begins today, too. The locals are bracing themselves for 10 days of Hollywood glam and all that comes with it. The hotels are completely booked up and the bars should be stocked up on their vodka by now. We're making our exit after our 3rd day of hitting more of the fluffy.

My Life List

My work, Federated Media, is running a campaign for Intel where Intel is sponsoring Mighty Girl blogger Maggie Mason's Mighty Life List. About a year ago, Maggie developed her list of 100 things to do before she "goes" and has since then accomplished such things as "swimming with bioluminescent plankton in Puerto Rico" and "taking tap lessons". This campaign has generated a lot of fun talk and inspiration for the people at Intel and Federated Media to come up with a list of 10 items to accomplish in their own lives. Here's my life's to do list before I "kick the bucket". And, oh! I can already strike 2 items off my list!

*Do the Vasaloppet in Sweden (largest x-country ski race)
*Dog mushing in the Yukon
*Stay in Ice Hotel Reykjavik, Iceland
*Drive x-country in a blue VW bus (doin' it this month!)
*Stomp grapes in Italy
*Drink Veuve Clicquot in Reims, France estate
*Kiss French at Eiffel Tower
*Go to disco in Ibiza
*Become a U.S. Citizen (did it 9/09)
*Write a children's book and Swedish cookbook
