Take Note 11•14•14


  • Did you know that Spanx makes leggings now?! The stretch twill is perfect for everyday and I’m loving the faux leather to jazz it up a bit! Think I’ll skip my 8:00 AM spin class this weekend and sleep in!
  • When Billy and I went to Paris a few years ago we literally ate our way through the city, and while there were so many recipes and ingredients I fell in love with, one that was a completely unexpected surprise is their version of hot chocolate. In lieu of the overly sweet powder/hot water mixture that I was never fond of, the Parisian’s is a decadent treat of milk & high quality chocolate – it’s just divine, and this recipe is exactly how I remember it! With temperatures dipping into the 20°’s, this weekend’s game is going to be a chilly one, so I’m going to mix up a big thermos of it (spiked w/ a little Bailey’s, of course!) to keep us warm and wits about us as we pray for a Giants win.
  • Rosetta’s probe landing on a moving comet over 300 million miles away, that took 10 years of perfect calculations & earth’s gravitational pull to achieve, completely blows my mind! Why isn’t the media talking more about this and less about Kim Kardashian’s nude spread (although this is pretty funny)?!
  • While we’re on the subject of cough, clearly photoshopped spreads, cough – if Disney Princesses had realistic waistlines. It sets a healthier standard of self esteem for kids, don’t you think?
