At least in tennis. Brady and I celebrated Valentine’s day this year by going to the SAP Open in San Jose. We got super-awesome seats to watch Andy Roddick. That’s us before the first match started. Yes, that’s Andy Roddick. I was like less than 100 feet away from him. But this was actually the day after Valentine’s day, so before I get to that, let’s talk about our super-romantic “love day.” Don’t worry, it’s actually pretty funny. Brady and I exchanged Valentines in the morning, when I got home…read more
Oxymoron? Not anymore. Brady and I have been doing a little workout program lately. It’s called P90X. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Or maybe you’re familiar with this guy: Yeah, we hang out with Tony Horton every day now…on our TV or in the gym on a computer screen.

If you could have seen my kitchen last night…you would think something had exploded in there. Frosting on the walls, flour on the floor, dough in the sink…and the scent of freshly zested oranges. That’s because I was trying to make Brady’s mom’s Orange Rolls. Not an easy task. A word about Brady’s mom: She is fantastic. She’s an AMAZING cook, and she knows how to make just about everything…from Orange rolls to English toffee to pizza and beyond. Naturally, when Brady married me…I knew I’d have some big shoes…read more
It’s a baby blanket. Not for me, of course. Some friends of ours recently had a baby, and I wanted to give them something. A little girl can never have too many blankies, right? I don’t consider myself a particularly crafty person…so when I make something like this, it’s a great triumph for me. So here it is, in its full artistic splendor.
