Teddy's Very Special Christmas Soiree

December 27, 2012
What Teddy wants, Teddy gets! On Dec. 25 she threw a Christmas party for her clan, and shockingly all went well! No drinks were thrown, no plates were smashed, no fur flew.
Teddy, Felicia and Beatrice all gossiped on the ottoman...
While the boys talked squirrel hunting as they enjoyed Kona coffee cookies on an oversized lounge chair.
The lovebirds Fopsie and Herbert cuddled like two bears during winter hibernation!
Teddy, the hostess with the mostest, made sure her flowers were fresh and her champagne was chilled.
Let's hope the bears keep the peace in 2013.

Liz & Dick Style

December 23, 2012
Everyone said Lindsay Lohan's Lifetime movie Liz & Dick was awful, but Teddy liked it, mostly because of all the glam Hollywood looks! Check em out:
The Cleopatra look was pretty decent...
The shopping-in-Bulgari look was dazzling...
One of the best was the South of France head scarf ensemble.
Poor Lindsay, she was so criticized for her part, but at least she looked good.

Christmas Fete or Fight?

December 13, 2012
The other day Nibs was minding his own business, reading the latest copy of Money magazine, when Teddy sauntered in the room.
Feeling in the party mood, Teddy asked Nibs if she could throw a Christmas soiree this year with, who else? Her family.
"Teddy, you well know that when you bring your family together it always, always ends in disaster. The claws come out," Nibs said.
Teddy used one of her old tricks on Nibs: she said nothing but leaned in for a bear peck on his furry cheek.
The trick worked! Nibs put down his magazine, gave Teddy a half bear hug and said, "Do what ever you want my little fuzzball."

Getting Christmas Ready

December 12, 2012
It's 12-12-12! And the world has not spun off its axis like the Mayans predicted. To celebrate, Teddy has decorated her house all Christmasy!
This year Teddy opted for a smaller tree because it's a lot less work for her little paws.
Teddy's mom came over to help put some finishing touches on the living room, like adding this musical Santa to the fireplace mantle.
Only two weeks till Christmas Eve and no family fights...yet.

Ashley Hebert To Marry JP Rosebaum on Dec. 1

November 20, 2012
Remember Ashley Hebert and JP Rosebaum, the couple from The Bachelorette last year? Teddy has learned they are tying the knot near L.A. on December 1.
The wedding will be outdoors at a big, fancy hotel in Pasadena. A lot of former Bach peeps are going like Ali Fedotowsky and Emily Maynard (though we're guessing not Ben F!). And Chris Harrison, the host, will officiate. Sounds like a good time. It airs on ABC 2 weeks later. Who's excited to see these two love birds get hitched?

Nibs Goes Viking

November 20, 2012
While in downtown Temecula Nibs discovered a Scandinavian shop that looked inviting.
Teddy loves all Scandinavian treats. Remember how every year at the Swedish Fair she loads up on pastries, chocolate and licorice?
The store is called The Little Viking and it does not disappoint! They had an entire corner dedicated to treats! Lucky Teddy. Nibs left with TWO bags.

Teddy Gets Lost At the Winery

November 8, 2012
After slurping wine all afternoon, Nibs led Teddy on a stroll through the winery's properties (hoping it would cause her to sober up!).
 Instead Teddy kept wandering off...
Teddy,where are you?
She's lost in the vineyards!

Barrels Of Fun

November 2, 2012
Ponte had several interesting rooms, like the barrel room which was full of, you guessed it, wine barrels!
Teddy was fascinated by all the barrels, she took this photo below with her OWN PAWS.
She even tried to get some vino out of one of them!
That Teddy!

Is Teddy Tipsy?

November 2, 2012
Teddy really took to the Ponte wine tasting room.
They give you five tastings for $25. How can you have just two or three then? You just gotta try all five.
Does Teddy look a little foggy eyed to you or what?

Wine Tasting At Ponte in Temecula

October 29, 2012
First on the list of wineries to visit in Temecula is Ponte, which Nibs insisted was the best.
It sure looks like it is! Check out these vines.
First things first: wine tasting!
Have you ever seen a bear drink wine? Check back tomorrow.

Sleepy Bears

October 26, 2012
When you stay at a hotel don't you just want to sleep in till noon?
Then after a 12 hour night's sleep you take a two hour bath?
And of course you take all the trial size shampoos and conditioners home with you. :)
Happy Friday!

Temecula's Wineries

October 25, 2012
During the first night in the hotel room Teddy and Nibs checked out a booklet on Temecula's wineries.
Teddy had no idea there were so many! Temecula is like a little Napa Valley.
This is going to be an all week experience thought Teddy.
Let's hope Teddy doesn't get too tipsy!

It's Easy Being On The Green

October 23, 2012
Teddy loves the hotel Nibs picked out, the Temecula Creek Inn, because it is surrounded by a massive golf course.
The bears cuddled on their balcony and watched the geese fly from pond to pond. Teddy could feel the tension leave her shoulders.
When Teddy took a fur soak (a bath), Nibs stayed on the balcony with his wine and cigar.
Do these bears look happy or what?

Nibs Takes Teddy to Temecula

October 22, 2012
Now that Teddy has finally risen from her weeks-long hibernation, Nibs wanted to take his wifie on a mini vacation to clear her head of all her family's cobwebs. He chose the Temecula Creek Inn because of its acres of nature.
The Inn features a full 18-hole golf course, not that Teddy golfs but it's just nice to look at all that green. It also has dozens of rose bushes.
Nibs likes roses too. He would never admit that, but he does.
Follow Teddy and Nibs for the next few days as they explore Temecula, CA!

Does Teddy Need Therapy?

October 19, 2012
Hearing that Teddy was finally out of hibernation, Beatrice came by to drop off the pearl necklace she had borrowed for Felicia's wedding.
"Teddy, I'm concerned. Why were you hibernating for so long?" said Beatrice.
"Mother, I think it had to do with seeing you and father fight at Beatrice's wedding," Teddy said very matter of factly.
"Teddy, I think you need therapy," said Beatrice. "It's not me, it's you."

It's Halloween Again!

October 18, 2012
Nothing makes Teddy happier than decorating her house for Halloween.
 Sure, it's the same old decorations but somehow they just seem to get cooler with the years.
Take this lighted Jack O'Lantern for example. Does it just make you happy looking at it? It sure does for Teddy.
 Just 13 days till the gobblins come by. EXCITED!

Hibernation or Depression?

October 17, 2012
Teddy has been in deep hibernation for several weeks. But this morning she finally opened her eyes.
"Teddy it's time for you to face the world again," said Nibs.
Worried that Teddy might be mistaking a natural bear instinct need to hibernate for plain, ole depression, Nibs held her paw and said, "We'll face the world together. Let's start by decoration the house for Halloween." That perked Teddy up a bit.
Poor Teddy. She was very rocked by seeing BOTH her parents together (and bickering) at Felicia's wedding.
