My First Commercial

August 25, 2014 · 5 comments

As promised, you guys get to see my best “car browsing” face from The Auto Connection Commercial.

For those of you who are impressed by immature humor, I’ll show you my friend’s really high brow comment about my face:

My friends. Making things inappropriate since the mid- to late-80′s. I’d smack him, but I need to give him a grammar lesson in comma usage first.

Anyway, thanks to The Auto Connection having a Youtube channel to house their compilation of really corny commercials, you can watch me shake hands, pet a dog, smile, and make that face in about 5 different versions of the ad.

Click here to visit the Youtube channel and watch “Night at the Opera”, “The Boss”, “Big Tipper”, “The Doctor”, or “The Musician.” My same spots are in the tail end of the ad.

I know, I know. Taking my bow, I’ll be signing autographs at the Short Pump mall on Sunday from 10-1. Just take a gander at that handshake!

But can someone teach me how to make a better on-camera face than that next time?


Something amazing happened on my annual family beach vacay that totally made this summer 110 times better.


It was Matt Nathanson. He happened.

If you’re confused, go listen to Come On, Get Higher. Then you’ll know who he is.

Upon arriving in Myrtle Beach, my best friend Maggie and I headed to the House of Blues (yes, where I have unabashedly seen Jesse McCartney AND Greg Raposo) for a Matt Nathanson and Andrew McMahon concert. Andrew McMahon is the lead singer of Jack’s Mannequin.amAnd he was awesome too, and all… but…


MATT. NATHANSON. We were in the second row, and I was singing my little heart out. If you’ve never checked him out in concert, I can’t recommend it strongly enough. He transitions into songs like “I’m So Fancy” in between his hits, offers hilarious standup sets, and shakes his hips like there’s no tomorrow.

If you’ve checked out any of my playlist posts, you may have an idea that Matt Nathanson is one of my favorites. He’s actually my most favorite, which is why I was stupid fangirl status psyched when we got to meet him after the show.

I, of course, walked up to him with my arms outstretched all set for a big hug (#noshame) with the declaration, “You’re my favorite.” Thankfully, he humored me, and said “You know, I wasn’t going to say anything, but you’re kinda my favorite, too.” The scene is captured below, and obviously, it was one of my favorite moments to ever happen. Ever, ever.


I got a shirt. My life could have ended that night. I’d be fine with it.

It’s also probably good he didn’t have an overbearing bodyguard of any kind within sight.

If you’re not turned off by terrible live performance iPhone audio, check out this highlight reel I made of a few song clips mashed up with his hilarious standup. If you enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed the night, my work here is done for the day.

Pure Barre: Tips from your Teacher

This post, however, comes as a request from a few readers and blog friends. I love, love the fact that everyone’s […]

DOES Cardio Make You Fat?

June 26, 2014

I was very against the recent(ish) ground-breaking ideology that cardio makes you fat. BUT, lately, I’ve de-prioritized (making up words, heyyoo!) my cardiovascular workouts, and I think the results have changed my outlook. As a cardio-holic, I have always been pretty addicted to the rush of endorphins cardio gives me. I like to feel like […]
