Ms. Peanut Butter

I love New York City. We arrived on Saturday and are on the flight home now on  Tuesday. It was cold and I couldn’t get enough. I freak out in LA when I need to wear socks, but in NYC it... read on

    On January 18, 1996 I gave birth to my one and only child. It was the most wonderful day of my entire life and I fell in love in a way I did not know was possible. This child is magic. He is funny, smart, charming, handsome, kind, aware, generous, compassionate, and a truly... read on

    I am a very blessed human being. Some would say I am lucky rather than blessed, but I believe God has a hand in my luck, which makes me blessed. I have a lot of things happening in my life and they have been consuming my time and thoughts. Professionally there are things I cannot... read on

    If Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren had a baby, it would be my friend Pam. She is a perfect mixture of these two icons with a smidge of Sharon Osbourne thrown in for a little flavor. Everything she does is beautiful. From folding a napkin, to a delicious dinner, to the perfect... read on

    Today I was in West Hollywood running errands. As I ran from one shop to another I came across a man on the street with a sign asking for money. He looked young and it made me sad. I gave him a dollar and told him to be safe. He said thank you, and I told him I would keep him in my... read on

    I had a date last night. We met online, spoke on the phone, and exchanged a couple of text conversations. He is my age, funny, charming, and I think he looks like a young Ed O’Neill. He is a gentle and inherently kind man. I felt comfortable with him both on the phone and in... read on

    I am surprised every single day by the world of online dating and fascinated by how dumb men are. Not stupid, although some are, but just dumb. How is it that a man can think using the words sexy, sensual, intimacy, lover, or oral in their profile names will make them attractive?... read on

    I am going to make a lot of changes in 2014. Some will be on purpose, some will be by accident, some I will have no control over, and some will be a surprise. 2014 is the year my son will go away to university, the year I find love, the year I fit into my skinny jeans, the year I... read on
