If there was an Olympic Sport for Blaming, I would be a renowned Gold Medalist. Part naturally gifted, part trained, I am an elite athlete with a skill level so high, even Nike couldn’t afford to endorse me. I am that good. I could say that I discovered my talent in 2003, at the start of my first marriage, but that would be an look like an admission of guilt, and good blamers don’t do that. Especially because: Everything is everyone’s fault anyway!!! 1st husbands, 2nd husbands, mothers, sisters, friends, KIDS (oh, don’t even get me started on the kids, they are the worst culprits): They all, for lack of a better ...Read More

When Jonah was born, I had the privilege of being able to stay home with him for a year before returning to work.  Initially, I chose to have a full time nanny come for a short time (an old story about her here). Eventually, however, it made more sense (financially and scheduling wise) to have him go to a local daycare. It ended up being the best decision ever as Jonah thrived in a setting with other children. (I attribute his early talking and social skills- at least the ones he had until he turned 8 and learned how to do an armpit fart- to daycare). While this was the right move, ...Read More

Summer Style & Travel: Mexico Edition It’s hard to believe that two years ago, I was writing a post about what three dresses I planned to wear as I pranced around Italy and Greece on our honeymoon. That was the trip of a lifetime and seems like forever ago… but I guess time certainly has a way of flying when you’re making babies and moving in to a new house. From Oliver’s amazing health, to Jonah finishing 2nd grade with flying colors, and Peter graduation with an MBA from UCLA (and working full time!) we have so much to celebrate and in my opinion, deserve another fabulous vacation! (Cue the St. Regis, Punta ...Read More

Contradictions and the Baby Weight Loss Struggle Remember that time I said I was going to be kind and forgive myself for all the things that I don’t have a grip on? (No? Then refer to this post). Okay, so that was really nice. Lovely and heartfelt and dripping with completely sincerity. But now my hormones are back to normal are within the realm of norm (insert husband’s eye roll here) and the truth serum I’m serving isn’t holding punches: I’m fat. Like scale fat. Like 20 pounds from this picture fat. Now before you say, “Oh Jenny, I’ve seen you. You look great!” Or, “You JUST had a baby, don’t be so hard on yourself,” or ...Read More

#WeAreLucky: Supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles I can remember at about 3am, a nurse, (I can’t remember his name. Was it Herbert? Let’s call him Herbert) came  in and checked Oliver’s vitals. Half asleep and in a daze, I watched as then he picked up my baby boy, and gently sat him on his lap to feed him the bottle of breastmilk that he offered to give (so that I could sleep). But I couldn’t sleep. Should I get up? I can’t get up. It was night 2 of our 3 day stay at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and sleeping wasn’t in my cards. It wouldn’t be for a few days. But I could ...Read More

JC Penney: #SoWorthIt Mother’s Day Style You know those moments when you put on an outfit and your girlfriends go crazy because they simply cannot believe you spent as little as you did, yet it looks so good?

It was our mission to make sure that moms never have a #PinterestFail again! For two days, we showcased some fabulous outfits, perfect for Mother’s Day, as well as every day ...Read More
Me. Honeymooning in Santorini, Greece.

My Body, My Motivation: Thanks, Kim Kardashian. Me. Honeymooning in Santorini, Greece.June 2014 I want to hate Kim Kardashian for recently posting a naked selfie (that she admits is not even of her post baby body), but I can’t. In response to the uproar over her breaking the internet yet again, Kim writes “I am empowered by my body, I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same ...Read More

The 5 Emotions of Sleep Training When Jonah was 5 months old, I had probably already read 468 books about baby development. From what to expect each minute of his precious life to breastfeeding because formula is the boogeyman, I was well versed in all things babyhood. Except sleep. Well that’s not true. I knew WHAT to do. I just didn’t do it. But I was 31. And 31 year olds can go without sleep more than almost 40 year old’s can. “And I’m going to be 40… When? Someday…” (By the way, if you don’t get that reference than you’re definitely too young to be reading this). Anyway, I’ve been feeling ...Read More

It’s 9:36am and I’m racing out the door to get to 9:30 workout class. I have spent the last 45 minutes telling myself that this workout is really important because not only will I not be able to workout for the rest of the week, but I totally fell off the wagon on day 9 ½ of my 21 day diet. Fucking Girl Scouts. But TODAY, I’m going to make it to class. To clear my head. To sweat. To work off 350 of the 3500 calories I consumed at the Chinese restaurant last night. I mean, if I go, I will be queen of the world. I have roughly 5 ...Read More
