it’s Brazilian pao de queijo (gluten free- cheese bread) and it’s delicious. truly, i’ve been searching for a recipe that i like and nothing compares to this. freezer to oven and hot and fresh in 20 min.

in Utah, Brazi Bites are available in the freezer section at Whole Foods, Harmons, Smiths, Sprouts, select Walmart, and Costco (family pack)!

like i said on air, just buy them and don’t try them on in the Nords dressing room (#hideouslighting). trust me. they are the ultimate “muffin-top-free” leggings that can go from the gym to a night out. my mom was so obsessed when i brought home my first pair (i needed something flattering and comfy for OLIVER! rehearsals) that she bought a pair for each of my sisters for Christmas. y’welcome. i really need a second pair cause , what is a girl to do when they’re in the wash?! and the price point is sweet… i’m usually a LULULEMON devotee but at a price point of over $100 for my fav pants, these Zella leggings are sitting pretty at $54.

also, no shine so you don’t have sausage thighs!

SEAQUEST AQUARIUMScreen Shot 2017-01-13 at 10.33.52 AM
i’m traumatized by fish. truly. when i was sixteen, there was an unfortunate incident including a (VERY cool 😉 terrycloth boyshort bikini (expands dramatically when wet), faulty scuba equipment, a partially open fish feed bag and me… which ended in my naked body, cut and bleeding on coral as i lay face down screaming for my sisters like Ariel when she got a body…. but with a lot more tears.


yolo. i am never one to shy away from a rad experience. i first saw the fish pedicure in Prague, but my schedule wouldn’t allow it. i was STOKED to hear it had come to Utah. it was a really fun experience.

the aquarium (as you see in the package) is really a fantastic place for grabby kids cause they can LITERALLY touch almost everything and at the end of it, mom can soak her feet in cool water and have the fishies suck off the dead skin. it would be an AWESOME thing to do if you’ve been on your feet all day because they suck the blood to the surface and rejuvenate your feet.

anywaaaay…. what you missed on tv was B nearly going into labor over being attacked by birds, screaming at me to sing SNOW WHITE, and me going into Musical Theatre Robot singing “I’m Wishing” trying to take our minds off of the Hitchcock-ian moment.  we really are a pair. we need to do more HIT LIST field trips.

not from Utah? no worries, you can hit the aquarium in LAS VEGAS and FORT WORTH!

this game was a total hit this christmas. download it on your itunes, air play it on the screen (or use your computer), and play with your wittiest friends.

* i’d rate this a high PG- so stick to older kids and adults- some of the humor can be as base as YOU make it… so ….you set the tone.


*** thanks for watching, friends! what items are YOU curious to see on an upcoming hit list? xoxo
