My Mermaids

I just took Audriana and Milania to get their picture taken with the wonderful Linda Marie. Look at my beautiful mermaids! Aren't they gorgeous? 

Linda Marie does the most beautiful work. She's taken my girls pictures since Gia was a baby. You know I like to do unique, original things, and when Gia was born, I wanted really special photos. I saw Linda Marie's studio sign on the side of the road and went in and was blown away. Here's her website (I think you might recognize a few of the kids on it!):

Linda Marie said she'll give 10% off to anyone who goes into her studio and mentions my name now through July 27. If you go, please send me a copy of your photos too! I love to see your beautiful kids! xx

Summer at the Shore

We enjoyed a beautiful weekend at the beach. The girls love playing in the sand. Milania was so proud because she did her bun all by herself. Doesn't it look great? xx

Fabulicious in Florida

Joe and I had an amazing time in Florida for my "Fabulicious: On the Grill" book signings. It was nice and hot and you know how much I like the heat! I was on NBC6 with the lovely Roxanne Vargas, love her! Joe and I ate at the NYY Steakhouse at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. They give you a personalized "love bone" with your name carved in it. So good!

Softball Girls


Gia just got her softball picture back. Doesn't she look beautiful?

And here it is compared to my old softball photo that she was making fun of on Twitter a few weeks ago. I know she secretly wishes she had the fabulous hair accessories and bracelet I was wearing. I had to glam up everything I ever did, even softball! xx


Recipe from Last Night's Show

Last night on RHONJ, I was making Escarole & Beans for the girls for dinner. It's a great, healthy vegetarian meal that you can use as a side dish or for a whole meal (great for Meatless Mondays!). My kids love it and it's high in fiber and protein, and low in fat. Here's the recipe. xx
