El Presidio De Santa Barbara

November 30, 2011
Feeling blue, Teddy got in her Benz and drove north to Santa Barbara SOLO. No Nibs. Fopsie has always told her to visit El Presidio De Santa Barbara so she did.
Teddy was fascinated by this old ranch/mission built in 1782 during the American Revolution.
The Spanish built this fort and Lt. Ortega was the first to run it--that was back when California was called Alta California. Inside, Indians worked and the Spanish military planned.
The simple Spanish architecture wowed Teddy. Join your favorite bear as she gets all Rick Steves on us and gives us a tour of this historic site.

Teddy Joe's

November 28, 2011
Poor Teddy, she is so busy with her family drama that she doesn't have time to cook a proper meal (not that she ever does anyhow) so she's been relying on Trader Joe's ready meals. Teddy visits the store so often they should rename it Teddy Joe's!
Last night she cooked up Mandarin Orange Chicken. It even says on the back, "So easy, even a bear can do it!" Teddy did not appreciate that one bit, but she did acknowledge that they had a point!
What's better than fried chicken and sugary mandarin sauce? Not much.
Don't forget to steam some white rice too. That took only about 20 minutes. Easy peasy!

Sisters Pep Talk

November 25, 2011
As could be guessed, things didn't go perfectly on T-Day. Beatrice asked Felicia why she wasn't married yet, which Teddy SPECIFICALLY asked her mom to not bring up. So Felicia came over for a pep talk (that's Teddy on the left, Felicia on the right).
"Felicia, you need to give people an answer when they ask you why you aren't getting married," said Teddy. "Sometimes you get mad and keep it all in which stresses you out. Why don't you give them the Teddy treatment and tell them to mind their own damn business?"
"Teddy, I'm not feisty like you. We sure do look alike, but we really aren't alike at all," said Felicia. "Sometimes I wonder if we have the same father." (GULP!)
"How is dad anyhow?" asked Teddy.

Pumpkin Bread

November 23, 2011
So many people asked what Teddy served Beatrice yesterday that she's decided to share her secret: boxed pumpkin bread mix from Trader Joe's.
Simply add the mix, 2 eggs, water and vegetable oil and stick in the oven at 350 degrees for 55 minutes and voila! Yummy autumn tastiness.
One can eat for breakfast or dessert. Don't forget to add little pats of butter to achieve optimum deliciousness.

Ben Flajnik As The Bachelor

November 22, 2011
Last night during Dancing With the Stars there was a commercial for the new season of ABC's The Bachelor, which debuts Jan. 2, 2012.
Ben Flajnik, Ashley Hebert's cast off from last season's Bachelorette, is the star and it looks like he is in San Francisco...? The photo below looks like it's taken on the San Francisco Bay. Well, he is from Sonoma, which is only an hour north.
In the clips we get lots of good details, like that Ben makes out with a girl in, where else? A hot tub.
And he makes out with a girl in a canoe...
And he bonds with this cute blonde who looks like a cross between Emily Maynard and Ashley Hebert.
We also learn that a woman in her 60s is one of the contestants. She hobbles out of the limo with crutches and tells Ben she fell madly in love with him while watching him on The Bachelorette. Ben looks horrified. Can't wait till Jan. 2!

Yes, Mom's Back!

November 22, 2011
With T-Day fast approaching, Teddy's mom asked if she could come over for some coffee and cake talk.
"Teddy, I want to come to your Thanksgiving dinner, but I am worried that I might say something wrong to Felicia and mess the whole day up," said Beatrice.
"Mother, just be nice. And don't keep asking why she won't marry Edward!" said Teddy. "You've been on a good streak. I know you can keep it up!"
Nibs just can't believe that all this drama continues! Sometimes, all Nibs wants to do is crawl into a dark cave.
Will your Thanksgiving be drama filled as well?

After the Rain

November 21, 2011
After torrential rains in L.A., Teddy came out to her car (well, it's really Nibs' car, but Teddy thinks it's hers) this morning to discover it was super dirty!
There were tiny leaves everywhere, coating the car. Teddy couldn't even get them off with her paw, it's like they were stuck on with glue.

Some leaves even lodged themselves into the numbers on the car.
Time to go to the car wash! Or, time for NIBS to go to the car wash, Teddy thought.

Heating Up

November 11, 2011
With the chill in L.A. just getting worse, Nibs thought it was a good time to invest in a jumbo space heater.
"Teddy, our fur is good, but it's not good enough to fend off this fall chill, so here you have it, a deluxe space heater," said Nibs.
Nibs even showed Teddy how to work it in case he wasn't home and she needed to warm up.
That Nibs. Always thinking of his Teddy.

The Chill Between Them

November 10, 2011
Teddy was still a little mad at Nibs for asking her about her pearl earrings so she was irritated when he came over to talk to her last night as she was snuggled up on the living room couch.
"I think I hurt your feelings Teddy, I'm sorry. I know better than to asked a lady bear about her accessories," said Nibs. "It's chilly in the house. Can I get under your fur blanket?"
Teddy was too cold to show her claws at Nibs so she let him get under the blanket and gave him a, what else? A bear hug. That's the secret of marriage: knowing when to let things go. "Your earrings are pretty," said Nibs.

The Pearl Earrings

November 9, 2011
Teddy was grooming her fur in the bathroom last night when Nibs suddenly barged in on her. "Teddy, are you going to keep on wearing those pearl earrings from your Halloween costume?" he asked.
"Last year you kept wearing those eyelashes, this year it's the pearl earrings," he continued.
Feeling insulted and picked apart, Teddy just turned her back to Nibs.
"Teddy are you OK?" Nibs asked. "Why aren't you talking to me?"

Mohamed's Beverly Hills House

November 8, 2011
Did anyone see last week's episode of RHOBH where Pandora had her Moroccan-themed engagement party at Mohamed's house? Teddy did. The house was MASSIVE and over the top! Here is a look below. Thoughts? And by the way, who is Mohamed? And does anyone think Lisa would dump Ken for him?

Lost Bear

November 2, 2011
On the way out of the theater, Teddy couldn't find her car. She must have looked on every floor!
All vehicles look the same these days. Where is Nibs when Teddy needs him?
Ah-ha! Our clever bear found her car. It was the only one that was backed in (Teddy is an excellent parker), so it was kinda easy to spot, actually.
VICTORY! Two paws up for Teddy.
It's nice going out, but it's nice going home too!

Leo's Suit Makes Teddy Roar!

November 1, 2011
After all that Halloween excitement, Teddy decided to take in a movie alone at the Landmark. Deep down, bears really are solitary animals.
Teddy wanted to see them all, but settled on 50/50. Seth Rogen has a lost some of his charm. :(
On the way out Teddy noticed the costumes for J. Edgar. There were displayed in the lobby. Leonardo DiCaprio wore the one on the left. He must be tall! (A lot taller than Nibs, thought Teddy.)
Hats. Hats need to come back into fashion, thought Teddy.
