I Heart Bethenny...

You knew her from RHONY, you loved her from Bethenny Getting Married and now you really love her on Bethenny Ever After.  Yes, you know who I am talking about; Bethenny Frankel.

How can you not like this woman?  She's super smart and wicked funny!  She developed her own liquor!  A bit of a wise guy, she tells everyone how it's going to be.  I heart her.

She just came out with a new book:  A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life.  In honor of this book, I vowed today to come from a place of Yes more often, too.  Here's the recap:


1. My daughter asked to stay home today; she was sick.  I said "YES, but you will clean your room, vacuum the living room and fold towels with me".

2. My husband asked if I was cooking dinner tonight or should he just plan to eat cereal.  I said "YES, I'm cooking dinner, but if you complain 1 bit about the food, I'm never cooking again, so maybe cereal is a good choice for you tonight".

3. I received a call today from a lawn maintenance company asking if we'd like our annual spring clean up to take place next week.  I said "YES, but I'd like for you to lower the price.  It's quite an expensive service and we're considering cancelling altogether due to the cost."

See, I can play nice, too!  Thanks for the inspiration, Bethenny Frankel!

I LOVE Bethenny, but I don't know how she lives with so many people running around her house. I would go crazy.

I love her too and it breaks my heart to see how insecure she is. That last episode for her birthday was heartbreaking.
