Teddy Cools Down

August 31, 2011
Ahhh, Neiman Marcus in Calabasas. There's no better place to stay cool during a blistering summer day.
Teddy checked out the home goods section and realized that it's really not too early to Christmas shop.
Maybe Nibs would like a nice new crystal vase? (Or maybe Teddy would!)
Tableware anyone? Felicia would love these autumn tones....

To Jog Or Not To Jog

August 30, 2011
To work off that croissant, Teddy hit the world-famous running path along San Vicente Blvd. in Santa Monica.
After two feet of running, Teddy was tuckered out. She blamed it on her thick coat of fur. It is summer, after all!
Perhaps it's a better day to dolphin watch instead, thought Teddy. So she walked, ever so slowly, toward the benches on Ocean Blvd.
It's important for a bear to know her limitations, right?

Bouchon Bakery Beverly Hills

August 29, 2011
Home again, Teddy decided to catch up on all things new in L.A. and on the top of her list was the just opened Bouchon Bakery in Beverly Hills.
Located near Bouchon Bistro, that charming French cafe that borders the Beverly Canon Park, the Bakery is actually much smaller than you'd expect.
It sits beneath the stairs that lead up to the main restaurant. Yes, there are 3 Bouchons: the main restaurant, the Bistro and the Bakery. Whew!
Teddy ordered the fruit croissant with a side a butter (she doesn't worry about her cholesterol level, clearly) and some ice water.
The verdict: yummy! Crispy from the buttery goodness and the fruit was perfectly cooked and nicely chunky. Bravo Bouchon!
After her snack, Teddy got pensive by one of the park's three fountains. Maybe being back in L.A. isn't so bad after all....

One Last Thing...

August 25, 2011
Nibs loved this plaque in their Ojai rental. It says: Play in the warmth of the sun. Dance in the light of the moon. Dream in the glow of the stars.
Happy Thursday!

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

August 24, 2011
Before they left Ojai, Teddy and Nibs took one last swing. They were sad to say goodbye to the country of wine and lavender.
"Nibs, let's make a promise to each other to come back every year!" said Teddy.
"OK, but first I want to see that tab from the candy store!" Nibs replied.

The Silver Lining

August 23, 2011
"Teddy, it's time to pack up and go home!" Nibs yelled from the stairs of their Ojai rental this morning. Nibs could not find that bear anywhere!
Teddy was hiding from Nibs outside. She didn't want to go home because the country air had been so good on her nerves and despite that "credit" thing at the candy shop, she and Nibs had gotten along famously.
Sigh. She supposed all good things must come to an end... well, at least back home she can return to her reality TV addiction!
There's always a silver lining, right?

Knock Knock

August 22, 2011
Someone's at the door. Who could it be?
"Hi Nibs. Just got back from a hike," said Teddy.
"Teddy, I know you are lying. The candy store called and said you asked to put several candy bars on 'credit' and would pay later," said Nibs.
Teddy, predictably, would not answer Nibs and instead went to her laptop to play Farmville.

Parking It

August 19, 2011
Today Tibs went to Ojai's little park, the Cluff Vista Park, you know, the one that isn't far from a candy store!!!
Teddy loved the Tuscany vibe of the park. Everything in Ojai is a little Tuscany-ish.
It was hot, about 100 degrees, and with all that heavy fur Teddy got toasty but that didn't stop her from reading about flowers... She loves her blossoms some.
By 11 am Teddy was exhausted! "Nibs, I need a candy bar!" she screamed. We all knew it was a matter of time before she broke down.

Sweet Talk

August 18, 2011
It's so quiet in Ojai the bears really didn't know what to do with themselves this morning.
Over coffee they discussed their options. Teddy suggested they visit the local park to check out the flora and fauna.
Nibs felt like Teddy had something up her fur, specifically that she wanted to visit the candy store that is located right next to the park. Oh well. Teddy has been a good bear on this trip. She deserved a little sugar.

Bears Vs. Mountain Lions

August 17, 2011
Nibs asked Teddy to go for a walk with him in the hills of Ojai, but she said no way.
You see, bears and mountain lions don't mix. Teddy read that the hills of Ojai are full of mountain lions. Eeek!
"Teddy, that was centuries ago before humans came along and started building all these stores and vineyards," said Nibs.
Teddy would hear any of it, so the bears skipped the walk and sat on the front steps instead...

Country Time

August 16, 2011
Ahhh, there's nothing like some fresh country air to make a bear feel relaxed. Teddy and Nibs loved their Ojai rental and spent most of their time in the back yard watching butterflies and looking for bobcats.
Look at these bears. They have been getting along for weeks. This is a record indeed.
Nibs says he has been trying to get Teddy in nature as much as possible and away from all that reality TV, specifically ABC's Bachelor Pad which is full of villainous dopes like Vienna and Kasey! UGH.
His plans seems to be working... for now.

It's Ojai!

August 15, 2011
Ojai, that's where Nibs took Teddy. Home of vineyards and lavender and Reese Witherspoon! Nibs rented a gorgeous house for them to spend the weekend in.
Nibs was tired from the drive and had to sit down. Can you see him?
Sometimes that bear just has to get off his paws for a rest.
Look for more pics soon...

Teddy Hits The Road

August 12, 2011
Nibs asked Teddy to get in the car for a road trip.
Nibs didn't tell Teddy where they were going but they headed North.
Teddy should really wear her seat belt!

Times Select

August 9, 2011
They say the best things in life are free. Teddy sometimes believes that. Take the Times Select paper she receives in her mail box every week.
 Teddy always gives the paper a good look.
And then there's the USA Weekend edition which is drenched with info. Pick yours up today!

August 8, 2011
Teddy usually sleeps in till say around 10 am. So Nibs, an early riser, has learned to make his own coffee. Good thing he has a Tassimo Home Brewing System, which is so simple.... even a bear can do it! (Sorry Tibs.)
First Nibs selects the type of coffee he's craving: Light roast? Dark roast? Hazelnut?
Pop in the packet...
And press the big button. Because Nibs has big paws, he likes big buttons.
The coffee brews. It takes like 20 seconds. That gives Nibs just the right amount of time to think about what he'll do for the day. He usually settles on whatever Teddy wants to do. He says it's easier that way.
Ahhhh, now Nibs has the energy to deal with his better half.
