As per Ms. Moon, I wore eye make-up. I had my eyebrows waxed and my hair cut a tad bit. I wore one of my new bras and a black shirt with a good neckline and decided that as long as people concentrated on my arched brows and decent cleavage, I would be good to go. In the photo above, my neck looks a bit crepey, but it's actually not so bad. The combination of Mediterranean ancestry and some extra pounds plumps out the skin -- one of the few benefits of carrying extra weight. I wore red heels and a blue, sparkly necklace. Oliver told me that the red shoes "didn't go," and I should "take them off." Henry told me that I looked great, so off I headed to The Banshee Theater in Burbank. I felt good going out there, a bit shaky and nauseous, but I heard some of my dearest friends in the audience, and their raucous laughter quelled my nervousness. All of the women who performed were excellent, and I'm actually excited to do it seven more times! I hope that if you're in the area or live nearby, you'll come out to see us.

And thank you for the sweet texts -- that meant a lot to me!
