Fun and Light
Dana shares why she loved this episode and the scoop on her boy genius and her $25,000 sunglasses.
Let me begin by saying how entertaining this week's show was for me to watch. The banter was so fun and light and I learned a lot about myself! The dress in the show did not end up being my wedding dress. I actually hired Janie Bryant from Mad Men to make me a custom one, but now that may change again as her popularity has ballooned into the stratosphere, and she does not have time anymore.
Every time I get somewhere with my wedding, I seem to have some sort of setback. Maybe it's the "force" telling me to let it go and just marry the man I love without all the hoopla. I guess because I'm a wedding planner, I want it to be a presentation of my work, as well as a celebration of my love. I was married once briefly in my early 30s, and I eloped -- so maybe a part of me stupidly feels the bigger the wedding the more likely it will work this time. Please Tweet or Facebook me if you have any vendors I should check out for my wedding. I welcome the advice!
I was surprised to see that Kyle thought our lunch was awkward. I found it really fun. I'll have to ask her about it when I see her. I am not embarrassed by my son's accomplishments. He just turned two and continues to excel in his language skills and reading. I am actually going to a French pre-school today for an orientation. As many of you know, I like to study basic Neural Science and what I found out when I was pregnant is that the brain works out like a muscle so teaching your child any language is good for them. It doesn't matter which one. I am teaching my baby Thai because Miss Sue, his beloved Nanny, and her children, Nat and Joanne, speak it fluently to him, so it makes it easy for him to learn. I have many baby training techniques using multiple resources, which I've been using to teach your baby the encyclopedia, math, or reading. ' In addition to committing "Row, row, row your boat" to memory forever, you can also include facts about the world that you struggled to learn in high school!
So I just want to say that I am 5'3" with 34DD natural boobs and was a size 6, as you see me on the show at Adrienne's barbeque -- so don't listen to Ken and Lisa, that isn't chubby. I'm just not a size 0 like the other women, but I am proud to be a 4 and happy where I am now. TV does add 10 pounds!
Now we come to the glasses -- there is a store on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills called Luxuriator, and it is the infamous store that I got my $25,000 glasses at. Take my word for it, the store is breathtaking! Actually Franco, the owner who is an amazing personality in his own right, has glasses that go up to $100,000 -- so my pair is small fry. Certainly these sunglasses are not for someone who loses their glasses a lot or hasn't bought their fill of cars and jewelry. They aren't going to feel super different then than a regular pair of high-end glasses. But if you are a person who loves to wear jewels daily and can afford it, I can tell you they are beautiful and loads of fun to wear, because, as we have seen from the show, they are a great conversation piece. The way I look at it these glasses are piece of art. Jewelry with function not just shades. To each their own!
