Clock that mug! #gratitude

The key to a great shoot? Having the BEST people in charge!
Hello darling ones!
I'm juuuussssst starting to come out from under all the craziness of getting our first videos for our NEW INTERIOR DESIGN SHOW shot. It was hectic, hotter than BLAZES (especially with the lights) but SO MUCH FUN. Here are a few sneak peeks behind the scenes, taken by our producer Andrea:
Co-host Kevin and I de-brief before changing out of our chanclas for the shoot.
The only bad thing about having Andrea take photos behind the scenes is that she isn't in ANY of them!

Here we are, dressed and *slightly* nervous before shooting the first segment EVAH!
One thing that helped ease our nerves? THE RIGHT MUG. No, I don't mean my makeup (though I hope you'll note that for you, people of the internet, I am giving full drag). I mean our gorgeous coffee mugs, which make an appearance in every in-studio segment. When we arrived for our 9am call time on Saturday, I told Kevin, "Don't worry, I got the mugs!" Now, we hadn't discussed getting mugs at all but Kevin immediately replied, without a trace of irony, "Oh, I'm so glad! I was kicking myself that I didn't pick up any nice mugs for the show!"  
You see why I love him? You'll love him, too-mark my words.

The mugs in question have special meaning to me, they were beautifully crafted by my friend and sistah bloguera, artist and author Kathy Cano-Murillo (@CraftyChica). Just when I was thinking it might be a fun surprise to get some mugs for the show, Kathy posted on facebook that she'd just put some new mugs up for sale in her etsy shop! Kismet! I immediately bought two.

If When you watch the show (no, not divulging the name yet) you'll notice that I am drinking out of this divine Virgen de Guadalupe mug:
She's blonde-I love it!
And Kevin has this darling cupcake mug that says "Peace, Love & Cafecito":

Want a Crafty Chica mug for your cafecito? Come on! We're ALL getting them. But really tho, if you want one, you'd better go to Crafty Chica's etsy shop NOW, there are only a couple left! 

Since the shoot went smoothly and stayed on schedule, I even got to attend my little niece's first birthday party!
Seriously, how lucky am I?
After all that excitement, I pretty much just wanted to sit around eating Artcic Zero and watching the RuPaul's Drag Race marathon that led up to the crowning on Monday night. The fact that my favorite reina, Bianca Del Rio won? Just the icing on the cupcake mug! I was SO #TeamBianca!

And THEN? At my weigh in, I'd lost almost another POUND! Even with all the madness this weekend. Calm down!

All in all, it was a FABULOUS weekend. I can't wait to share the new show with you but for now, first item on the agenda is getting back to the PODCAST. Second item is getting exercise more than two days a week. Because I'm not kidding myself, I know losing that pound was a gift from the Virgen de Guadalupe.

I can only be SO camera-ready!! #braindump

Hello everyone!
Hope you are all extremely well.  I am trying to keep it together in the middle of a sweltering heat wave. I do NOT do well in the heat, fabulous ones. It makes me pretty unpleasant to be around (at least, that's what I hear). But I've got to get it together because I've got BIG stuff going on this weekend!

I've got to be CAMERA-READY. Or, more specifically, INTERNET-CAMERA-READY.

Hope you're spending the day together with the people you love!

Wishing you HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY with extra cheese-

A Mexcellent Playlist for Your CINCO DE MAYO CELEBRATION!!

Lighting a vela for YOUR Cinco party!

Hola everyone!
As a Mexcellent-American and a native of Southern California, this day is always a little funny for me. Even though Cinco de Mayo is a holiday we NEVER celebrated in my family when I was a kid, I really love that this country takes a day to celebrate Mexican culture, crafts, food and more! HOWEVER...even here in America's Finest City ("I can see Mexico from my house!") Cinco de Mayo celebrations often take a few, um, liberties. 

Yes, I'm talking about the music.
