Forgot my hat!

yes, it’s TRUE…not only am i a certified cowgirl, thanks to passing an intense training course at ‘cowboy u’ in scottsdale, arizona…BUT i’ve also safely landed a hot air balloon in the middle of a suburban neighborhood…and that was all in one day! if you tuned in to the premiere of ‘destination tennis: scottsdale’, you’ve already witnessed my adventures first-hand and i hope you enjoyed the show.

Unscheduled Landing-- Hot Air Balloon Ride in Scottsdale, AZ

if you missed this ep, be sure to check the tennis channel schedule for repeats…it’s worth tivo-ing, i promise. if not for the beautiful sweeping desert landscapes and world-class tennis resorts, then certainly for a good laugh as i learn to ride a horse or get crushed at tennis by a 10-year old kid (he was GOOD, what can i say).

this has been our 2nd official episode to air on tennis channel and we’re getting geared up to shoot our next show in vancouver, canada! i grew up playing tennis & traveling…and i love nothing more than meeting people, great food, and sharing new experiences. so i invite you to come along for the thrills, laughs, and good times on ‘destination tennis’. thanks for watching :)

hello all! i’ve been fiddling around with the wordpress app on my new iPhone…i’m loving it, especially word games & trivia, my super camera and the painful wait at the dmv that was made tolerable by the presence of fun new toy…but i miss the keyboard and trackball of my crackberry! i feel so clumsy and uncoordinated typing, but hopefully i’ll get the hang on my big-kid’s gameboy soon enough :)

anyway, i’ve had a mad busy week (not ‘mad’ as in angry…more like ‘super duper’ busy), actually my week was awesome! i just got back from the american music awards at the nokia theatre, where i was covering red carpet arrivals for radaronline.com. there was an impressive line-up of performers including janet jackson, whitney houston, green day, adam labert and oh-so many more. the red carpet consumed the entire courtyard area in front of the theatre and there were hundreds of media outlets present, not to mention the most beautiful and talented artists in the music biz.

and before the ama’s, i spent the beginning of this week in nyc. i received a call last week about a potential gig and was flown out to the big apple for an audition & meeting. i was sooo excited to be back in the city! the last time i was in nyc was months ago to shoot the axe hair crisis relief telethon for mtv. this week, the weather in nyc was absolutely sweater-perfect and i stayed at the greatest hotel– the ace hotel– which happened to be blocks away from my old apartment! the audition went well and i had a chance to meet and work with some really talented & fun people.

now that i’m back in town and done shooting for a little while, i can do laundry!! clean the house!! and get ready to host my first thanksgiving!! the ‘rents, fabulous chinese aunties, cousins & even my 15-yo dog will all be in attendance! we’ll be devouring an asian-fusion feast including a chinese turkey (yes, and it’s delicious. stuffed with sticky rice instead of stuffing). i literally have days to prep, clean and cook…better get going!

wishing you and your loved ones a happy thanksgiving :)

hello everyone!

i’m back from another whirlwind ‘destination tennis’ shoot, this time in beautiful sedona & scottsdale, arizona. sedona is an extraordinary place…not only is it visually stunning, but the energy and life force there is palpable. i’ve never experienced a community that’s so in tune with and respectful of the land where it resides. i was a bit skeptical about the whole ‘vortex’ thing, but after visiting this remarkable place you really understand how beautiful and powerful the energy that connect all living things is.

our few days in sedona at the enchantment resort were amazing! from the daily spiritual/healing session to the world-class spa facility and the incredible food– i learned to make the most delish blue corn waffles yummm– it was a truly unforgettable experience. but the absolute best part was being surrounded by the gorgeous red rocks…our resort was literally nestled in the middle of 360 degrees views of red rock formations!

here’s a photo of us, dt girls, from the rooftop of the enchantment resort:

after a few days in sedona, we headed to the phoenician resort in scottsdale. i loved this place! unbelievable decor, great food, golf, tennis, i could LIVE here, no joke! i was impressed by how many interesting and fun things there are to do in this city. i was literally flying in a hot air balloon by day and sipping champagne at the sleek and swanky red bar at the mondrian by night. not to mention, attending (and graduating) from cowboy college!! i won’t say anything else about my adventures, but you MUST tune in on nov. 30th for ‘destination tennis’ on tennis channel…it’s going to be AWESOME :)

at the scottsdale arts district, between takes…

speaking of shows…thanks to everyone for watching my 1st ‘destination tennis’ show in san diego! i’m thrilled to hear your thoughts and feedback. we packed in sooo many things in a such a short period of time but there were just a ton of things to do and see in san diego…it was great! i do have to give a shout out to our 2 fabulous tennis resorts– the la jolla beach and tennis club, as well as rancho valencia. as you probably noticed on the show these resorts are out of the world! la jolla b&tc is literally on the SAND. i loved having breakfast in my room each morning with panoramic views of the ocean– it was the perfect way to start my day. and rancho valencia was a divine sanctuary, where you feel instantly relaxed and secretly tucked away from the world.

i hope you’ve enjoyed the 1st show and i can assure you it’s only going to get better and better!! thanks so much for watching :)
