Girl Crush

I admit, as a foodie I have a total girl crush on Giada De Laurentiis.  And she is 80 miles from my house today.  Sigh.

Here are some facts from her website:

~Her husband works with Anthropologie and that's where she gets most of her wardrobe.
~She wears OPI nail polish in Bubble Bath (I love her nails!).
~She attributes her trim physique to her genes, eating fresh, and not stuffing herself full.
~Besides Italian she loves Japanese food.
~Her famous blue and white measuring spoons and pastel measuring cups are also from Anthropologie.
~She's in San Francisco at Williams and Sonoma today!  So close, yet so far.   

Also, a thank you goes out to these awesome bloggers for giving me blog awards.  This past few days have been particularly hard for me so getting these awards definitely brightened my mood.

Thanks, you guys!



  1. Yes, I love her! Her food always looks wonderful. I must admit, I am often confused my how small she is - sometimes, she appears of average height and then all of the sudden the camera angles shifts she looks tiny. Random, I know. =)

  2. She is one of my favorites on Food Network! Ina is my favorite but Giada is a close second... Plus, her dishes are usually slightly healthier than Ina's.

    I had no idea her husband worked for Anthro... Wish I could work for them and create cool stuff for them... or just get their coffee. Whatever works.

  3. Oh, yes, she's been a girl crush of mine for a loooooong time. And I adore her recipes - she's typically the Food Network chef I go to for everything!
    I'm sorry you've had a rough week so far... hopefully it gets better soon! Hang in there, tiny dancer! :)
    xoxo J

  4. I love her too! I always notice her pretty nails and her clothing and how trim she always looks :)

  5. I think she's beautiful but I feel like every time I turn on her cooking show she's got too much cleavage!!!

    By the way, I went to a school assembly today that is held by a local dance company:
    It was so cute seeing the dancers improv sentences the children made up :)


  6. i love her too!
    and about the ballet pictures I have a few from I was little here:

  7. She makes eating such a sensual experience!! haha. Have you read the book Why French Women Don't Get Fat? I take it with a grain of salt, however most of it is great and she recommends not stuffing yourself, eating fresh seasonal foods, and enjoying what you eat. And you don't have to be French to do that!

    Make sure you are taking care of yourself this week!

  8. i love her and her recipes! of course her wardrobe is from anthro... just one more thing for me to envy!

    that reminds me, i really should start thinking about what to make for dinner.

  9. she is around all that amazing food day in and day out, and she doesn't look it! she is tiny and trim!

  10. Aw, Giada reminds me of my (big) sister- tiny and pretty and crazy about pasta!
    Very cute. I like her shows and books, and I don't even like that sort of food (pasta and such)- she's just interesting and fun to watch.

    Have a great day!

  11. aaah! Her looks and life aren't fab enough...her husband has to work for Anthro? Come on! (I love here too)

  12. I'm sorry the last few days have been difficult for you. Just know that you are loved. I'm one of many! Dad

  13. Ha ha, this is the girl crush? Just teasing. I don't cook, but my hubby does - he crushes on her and I think Rachel Ray!

  14. i too have a girl crush on her! i am a huge fan of food network, and watch her show constantly {you have to try her shrimp/mussel/arugula pasta - delish! i used it on my blog:}


  15. She is gorgeous! My mom loves watching her show.

  16. God I love her! I remember the first time I ever watched her show...hooked on her for life now!

  17. the anthropologie factor does make her an instant fave! and she is so pretty:)

  18. Took me a bit to get used to her but I definitely like her:) I just bought her pasta sauce at Target to try it out. Strange to buy sauce there, but hey!

  19. My boyfriend and I may have a talk about his current career choice. An Anthro wardrobe? Love that. I have one of her cookbooks and it's just fantastic -- the eggplant ravioli is just spectacular.

  20. Fun facts! Bubble Bath is my fave neutral nail colour.

  21. Deals at Anthro AND she's an amazing cook?? She's got it all! geesh
