Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

Long days, late nights, endless to-do lists — do these things sound familiar? Do certain situations make you feel like screaming into your pillow? Do Better Things call you?

Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

A mom you can relate to on the FX Network

 

If you are a mom, you bet they do! Stumbling through days with little-to-no sleep, but still managing to drive carpool, go to work, give homework help, take care of household chores, nurse your little sickies, and get dinner on the table doesn’t leave you much “me” time. As a mom, you are always sacrificing for your children, and you wouldn’t have it any other way, but you are still, YOU. So, let your style and personality shine, and get ready for Better Things.

 

Being exhausted at the end of the day, and knowing you have that last load of laundry you have to finish (because your daughter swears she’ll die if she doesn’t have that outfit to wear to school the next day), can make you want to pull your hair out. Well, stop pulling and start laughing!

Better Things, a NEW comedy series created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon for FX Network airs Thursdays at 10PM. Every mom will relate to Adlon’s character, Sam, a single mother raising three daughters. Like any mom, Sam wears many hats — mom, dad, referee, and the cops.

Watch pieces of your life unfold on screen as Sam navigates motherhood, a job, and a wannabe social life with little-to-no filter. Rory and I found ourselves smirking and laughing at some of the scenes that could have come straight from our lives. I guarantee you will have your own life moments flooding back to memory. Feel the validation! Roll your eyes with frustration. Love the heartwarming moments. Snicker at the hilarity.  Enjoy the triumphs. And realize you are not alone. Get together with your girlfriends and watch Better Things.

Hot Rods & Classic Cars

Hot Rods and Classic Cars

And some of the awesome Car Shows of Summer

Every Saturday morning, just about a mile from my home, hot rods, classic cars, and muscle cars gather for possibly the biggest and best weekly car show and cruise around, Donut Derelicts. People bring their cars from miles (even counties) around to take part. You can read more about this here.

But summer brings some extra special once-a-year shows to our area. Since building and restoring Hot Rods and Classic Cars is Luke’s line of business, we go to these great shows and have a wonderful time.

We started our summer car show stops at the legendary LA Roadster Show at the Pomona Fair Grounds.  At this classy event, The L.A. Roadster Club showcases the Original Hot Rod–the 1932 Deuce, along with 1928 to 1934 hot rod Roadsters, plus rows of specialty cars, coupes, sedans, woodies and wagons ranging from 1910 to 1975. This annual Father’s Day weekend event is a fundraiser to benefit worthy non-profit organizations. Here are some of the cars we saw…

Next on our list was the 75th Anniversary of the 1940 Ford, at the Forties Limited of Orange County‘s 39th Annual Forty Ford Day at La Palma Park in Anaheim. This show celebrates the 1940 Fords, but you can find other cool street rods and classics there as well…

So Long, Jay Leno… Now, Shut Your Von Trapp!

It’s the End of an Era

What a fitting farewell for Jay Leno. It was wonderful to watch the two old friends reminisce the years. Billy Crystal is not only a great entertainer, but a great friend. His musical surprise tribute to Jay was the best! Check it out…

Jay made me cry with his heartfelt goodbye. It was truly like saying goodbye to a dear friend.

Gilmore Girls Theme Song

Gilmore Girls is one of our most favorite TV series of all time. My daughter and I LOVE this show, and we find we have so much in common with Lorelai and Rory… Bring me some COFFEE!!!

The young at heart, fun loving, witty banter makes us smile. And there is nothing like a few quirky characters to add laughter and spice to your life.

Well, it’s late, so I’d better set my furry alarm clock and head off to Sleepyland …
