Not Blue Skies

September 30, 2011
When Teddy picked up her copy of Los Angeles Times this morning, she noticed it was very gray out. Maybe the bad weather will motivate Beatrice to go home?
Just look at the skies! Gray. Gloomy. Overcast. Beatrice hates that.
Teddy wonders when Nibs is going to confront her mother. He can get pretty grizzly when he wants to. Eeek!

Halloween Cards!

September 29, 2011
Nibs insisted that Teddy get out of the house for some fresh air so she went for a stroll (where else?!) in Beverly Hills. Paper Source caught her eye immediately.
They already have their Halloween cards in and boy oh boy are they spookier than ever!
The windows were just full of lovely autumnal things! Teddy's mood perked up.
Fall is Teddy's favorite time of year. Her fur gets thicker (it's been falling out lately thanks to Beatrice, but oh well) and she loves it when Starbucks starts making their Pumpkin Lattes! YUM.
Teddy has gone from grumpy to giddy. Will it last?

A McDonald's Kind Of Night

September 28, 2011
Poor Teddy has been so stressed out over her mother Beatrice's visit (Felicia won't even answer her phone!), that Teddy hasn't been able to cook at all, not even her Bertolli frozen pasta meals. So Nibs picked up McDonald's for her.
"Teddy, you are way too stressed out!" our favorite bow-tied bear said. "I've noticed that your fur has been falling out. It's all over the house! I'm going to have a talk with your mother. This must end!"
Has Teddy EVER lost her appetite? Especially when tasty fries and warm burgers (2!) are in front of her? This was a first.
Nibs, however, chomped away fearlessly like a, well, like a hungry bear!

Martini Talk

September 23, 2011
With peace on her mind, Teddy had her mother Beatrice and her sister Felicia over for martinis.
"Mother, we want you back in the clan," Teddy started. "That means you have to stop pressuring Felicia to get married."
"No way!" said Beatrice. "I have to push. Or else Beatrice will end up a spinster."
Felicia didn't say anything. She just quietly shed a small tear.

The Drive

September 22, 2011
Teddy's head was a mess over the whole Beatrice visit, so she decided to go for a drive.
Teddy always clears the cobwebs out of her brain when she's behind a wheel.
Maybe Nibs is right. Perhaps Teddy should make peace and invite Beatrice back into the clan.
That way there would be more peace among the bears. Teddy decided to invite Beatrice and Felicia over to discuss this matter.

Dancing Their Way To Peace

September 21, 2011
After a brief hibernation brought on by the stress of having her mother Beatrice in town, Teddy emerged from her bed yesterday. On Nibs' advice, Teddy asked Beatrice to come over for some fun. So together they took in the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
Fopsie, Teddy's Hollywood insider, said that Mark Ballas is already hitting on his partner, The Hills beauty Kristin Cavallari, and that is why he recently broke up with American Idol singer Pia Toscano.
Fopsie also said that George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis is the LEAST liked on the set because she is not friendly (it may have something to do with her awkward Italian accent--the girl can barely speak English!).
Instead of fighting, Teddy and Beatrice were bonding over the show--Beatrice loved it that Teddy had the inside scoop. That Nibs sure is a smart bear!

Truth and Cinnamon Rolls

September 16, 2011
With thoughts of getting her out of L.A., Teddy invited her mom Beatrice over yesterday afternoon. On the menu was Teddy's favorite meal: cinnamon rolls and coffee.
"Mom, if I get Edward to propose to Felicia will you leave town?" Teddy said.
"Teddy, that is the rudest thing you ever asked me!" said a startled Beatrice."Why do you want me to leave L.A.? I just got here!"
"Mother, you are very hard on your daughters. We can't take it. I am sure you are thinking right now that I am so fat that I shouldn't even touch this cinnamon roll," Teddy started. "But guess what? I'm going to eat the whole thing in one bite, watch me!"

How To Get Beatrice Home

September 15, 2011
This morning while having coffee in bed, Teddy and Nibs discussed Teddy's mother Beatrice.
"Teddy, when is she going home?" Nibs asked. "You always get so cranky when she's in town."
"Nibs, if I can only get Edward to propose to Felicia then my mom will be happy and she will go home," Teddy said.
"Teddy, don't get involved! I am warning you!" said Nibs. "Nothing ever good comes out of sticking your little black nose in other bears' business."

Teddy Confronts Her Mother

September 13, 2011
After the storm that is called Beatrice came through, Teddy became flooded with emotion. So Teddy decided to have a sit down talk with her mother.
"Mom, every time you come to visit me and Felicia you have some criticism for us. This time it's why isn't Felicia married," Teddy started. She sounded confident but her paws were sweaty and her fur was standing straight up.
"Teddy, I had no idea you felt this way," said Beatrice. " But isn't that what moms do? They mettle! I still love my cubs all the same."
Teddy's little heart melted and she gave her mother a hug. "Jeez, Teddy, you've put on some weight!" Beatrice blurted out. OH NO! Guess she just couldn't help herself... Poor Teddy.

Teddy's Mother Stirs The Pot!

September 12, 2011
Turns out Teddy's mother was more interested in picking on Felicia than on Teddy. Teddy discovered that when her sister and Edward came over for refreshments.
As the four of them (clockwise from top left: Edward, Teddy, Beatrice and Felicia) enjoyed Pelligrino in the back yard, Beatrice asked a lot of questions.
"Felicia, when are you going to settle down like your big sister Teddy? And when I say big I mean older, not really fatter," Beatrice said with a little jab to Teddy.
Edward had a sinking feeling. He didn't expect to be confronted by Felicia's mother on the subject of marriage....

She's Heeeeeeere!

September 9, 2011
Last night the bears were enjoying some post dinner coffee and strawberries when they heard a knock at the front door (a collective sinking feeling overwhelmed the bears).
"Well hello there daughter," said Teddy's mother Beatrice.
Teddy was in shock to see her mother in the fur, so to speak. Teddy was paralyzed with fear. Just the sound of her voice brought back a flood of bad feelings about poor grades, chubby wisecracks (Teddy used to be plump) and her inadequate cooking skills. "Come on in," Teddy said meekly.
After Beatrice settled in with her coffee, Teddy collected herself. "Wow, she's really here," Teddy kept thinking, but she still managed to smile.

A Letter From Mama Bear

September 7, 2011
In the mail today Teddy received a card which had very familiar writing on it.
Teddy was paralyzed with fear. Could it be from her mother?
She slowly opened the card....
It looked like a cheerful card, but was the message as upbeat?
Gadzooks! It was from Teddy's mom! Holy bear traps!
"Dear Teddy, I'm coming to visit you in Los Angeles in early September. See you soon! Love, Your Mother." Early September? That's now! OH NO!

Jennifer Aniston Moves In With Her Man

September 6, 2011
Teddy can really relate to Jennifer Aniston because, like Teddy, she is blonde. So, naturally, Teddy picked up the latest issue of InTouch which features the Friends star on the cover.
The weekly reports that Jen has moved into a cozy house in West Hollywood with her new boyfriend Justin Theroux. They also bring up a beach wedding which sounds borderline ridiculous.
Check out the new pad. Sort of modest for a superstar like Jennifer, thinks Teddy.
The new place is above, on the right. Teddy is happy that she already has her love nest with Nibs. :) Awww.

Lazy Labor Day

September 5, 2011
Happy Labor Day from Teddy and Nibs!
The bears are being very lazzzzzzzy today. Sitting in the sun is about all they can handle.

Malling About

September 1, 2011
You can't visit Calabasas without stopping by The Commons, where the Kardashians flock like gulls to a shrimp boat.
It was hot, but Teddy braved the weather for a stroll in this tranquil mall.
OK, so Teddy really couldn't brave the 100 degree weather for more than 5 minutes, so she slipped into the mall's movie theater.
Teddy gave The Help two paws up! Sorry, no Kardashian sightings.
