I think my twins are gifted. I know, I hate to be one of those moms. But I’m telling you – Chase and Harlowe know how to read. Impossible? Oh, you’re going to feel like such a fool. Look at the proof:

On Wednesday, I post about how I’m ready to fly to Paris in an effort to escape my chaotic, guilt-ridden, exhausting life with newborn twins.

On Wednesday night, the twins slept 5 beautiful hours straight.

Clearly, they’ve been reading my blog.

Because this extra sleep, along with the knowledge that my kids will be going to an Ivy League school, has really buoyed my spirits, I want to share a little bit more with you about my romantic entanglementsfriendships, brief encounters with Bruce Jenner and Nate Berkus at BlogHer.

As soon as I got to the NYC Hilton, I heard Bruce was in the house. Apparently hawking Tropicana orange juice. I guess, because juice rhymes with Bruce. Sort of the way, my Mouthy Housewives pal Wendi used to sell imitation Fendi on the streets of Austin.

I am fascinated by Bruce Jenner. Something about the fluffy hair, the abundance of facial work, the gold medal in the Decathlon, the lifelong commitment to juice. Despite their whining, I dragged Wendi and Marinka around the BlogHer expo hall in search of Bruce and they said supportive things like, “He’ll never accept you as his step-daughter just because your name starts with ‘K.’ You’re living in a dream world if you think you’re as fabulous as Kourtney, Kim or Khloe.”

Turns out, they were right, because all I got was a photo.  Although Bruce Jenner seemed very nice and if given enough time, I think I could convince him to raise me as a Kardashian.

On to Nate Berkus. I’m going to be honest. I didn’t exactly know who Nate Berkus was. I guest I missed the 45 billion times that he appeared on Oprah. Turns out, he’s this super cute, famous interior decorator who  threw a cocktail party at BlogHer to celebrate his new show.

But trying to get a photo with the guy is not easy. Because he’s very popular and was surrounded by very chatty bloggers. Apparently, all bloggers are not introverts. So I kept trying to get in there….

See, that’s him on the left. Me on the right. And a shiny brunette blocking my path.

I finally did get access to Nate.  But I didn’t really have time to chat with him because we were late to meet Pauline and Jennifer at Ruby Foos in Times Square so I just said (on the recommendation of Fendi Wendi)… “Love your throw pillows!!” and waved goodbye.

I’m pretty sure he’s going to put me on his new show.

P.S. Thank you to each and every one of you for your comments on my last post. You really do know how to make a gal feel better. xo

    My big Blogher takeaway was a photo with Bruce – so close to celebrity. I’ll keep it for my daughter to encourage her in her competitive swimming careeer – look what you get to do as an Olympian! All those early morning and evening workouts! Pimping OJ AND a reality show! Oh, gotta get her off to swim practice… Do you ever get tired of hearing how fabulous you look??? You must be using some great skin formula. Please pass on tips and product endorsement…

    Would you please stop showing off your celebrity connections?

    And it’s been a long time since I laughed like I did when we were trying to get the Berkus photo.

    Kelcey, you’re AWESOME! I told my daughter that you got a pic with Bruce and she wanted to know all KINDS of things…told her I didn’t know, I’d have to ask you. Her reply: Well fly up to NYC and ask her”…yea, I’m SO pencling that in between my Sac’s shopping trip and my eyebrow wax.

  • Phew! I’m so glad someone else went into that party not knowing who he was. I felt like such a schlump, not knowing such obviously crucial information. Glad you’re feeling some better. It’s amazing what 5 straight hours of sleep’ll do for ya.

    Hey Kelsey–
    I’m sure it was fantastic and a little bit horrible to be away from home. Maybe not. Maybe it was all fantastic!
    That sleep thing is paramount. when they nail that, you’ll be able to do it all.
