Bye Bye Beardie

Abe walked in just as I published last night’s post – we got to watch Obama’s speech together…


…and then, he got rid of that beard he promised to shave on Election Day. This morning, I was up bright and early for another day on Nice Girls Crew 2. Munched on green grapes and granola/nuts while getting ready…


…then got shooting – fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams – channeling Ann Margret in Bye Bye Birdie!


(I know I can’t be the only one out there who watched “How Lovely to Be a Woman” 1000x growing up.)

Lunch was from Sandwich Boulevard



…a place that makes sandwiches, of course.


Tried one of all 5 kinds – everything from turkey to a veggie option with eggplant…


…and seconds on a piece of their version of a Philly Cheesesteak, with celery/carrots + guacamole, plus two Fudge Stripe Cookies.


Back to work…


…with new looks, courtesy of my boyz


…there was a second meal from Numero Uno. Not quite hungry enough, and wasn’t craving cheese, so I noshed on more grapes instead…


…plus some raw celery/broccoli and Sabra hummus.


Back in time to spend just a little time with my cleanly-shaved man – the cookies I brought back from set didn’t quite survive the ride home in my purse, but still tasted good with a cup of miso!


On Demand Weekly just published an interview about the first season of Nice Girls CrewEpisode 2 is now online to watch on YouTube…

…and here’s the blog post I did when we filmed it!

    Is Abe a San Francisco Giants fan? We have a special place in our hearts for beards around here..they helped us to our World Series wins, so maybe Abe’s helped Obama to his? Looking forward to watching the eps of Nice Girls Crew you’re filming now :)

      Thanks Heidi! I don’t know if you wanna hear this, but Abe is a die hard Phillies and Yankees fan!
