We’ve revealed that Jody is the winner of our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower… so now it’s time for our readers to get to know this special mama (to Charlie, 3 years old)/mama-to-be (due in July!) a little more!

Pinks & Blues: Who is the first person you called when you found out you won the Virtual Baby Shower contest?

Jody: After I read the email twice from Pinks & Blues announcing that I was the winner, and Charlie and I stopped screaming and jumping up and down saying, “We won, we won!” then I immediately called my dear friend Heidi. I thought she deserved the first phone call since none of this would have happened without her surprising me with the nomination for the Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower. Much to my dismay, I got her voicemail, but left her an elated message saying, “I WON!” and, “THANK YOU, Heidi, for making this all possible!”

Needless to say, she called me back soon after and we both rejoiced at the good news and giggled like little school girls. Heidi said she was hopeful I would win, but we both knew the other mamas had touching stories as well. She said she had already sent out a massive email announcing the good news and could not wait to call her family and close friends! She told me that she plans on being at my house after the prizes arrive so we can open things up together. She almost seemed speechless, and I would not describe Heidi as a quiet person. 🙂

I told her that as excited as I was about the marvelous prizes I had won, I was just as excited that I got to share Adeline’s story with the world and fully celebrate this little miracle growing inside of me. I believe that Adeline is looking down from heaven at us and smiling at the joy that is being restored in our lives.

My Mom says that Adeline accomplished so much in her short life; she brought hundreds of people to God in prayer during my month on bed rest in the hospital, she brought us so much joy when she was born, she broke our hearts when she left us less than 24 hours after her arrival, and again she brought hundreds of people to God in prayer after she left us and we desperately needed to be held by Him. Still presently, she is at work as many are praying for this baby and a healthy pregnancy for me. She is one remarkable little girl!

P&B: You are planning to keep the gender of your baby a surprise. During an ultrasound, have you ever been tempted to find out the sex?

Jody: Yes, especially since my husband would like to know the gender. I would let him find out, but he cannot keep a secret, so that really is not an option. When the ultrasound technician began to scan me yesterday, he asked if we already knew the gender and if we wanted to find out. I immediately said, “No, we do not know and we hope to remain surprised.” My husband said, “Yes, I would love to find out!” I gave him “the look.” Guess who won this disagreement? Yes, the gender is still a mystery even though my ‘motherly instinct’ has me leaning towards one gender over the other.

I will have many more ultrasounds in the next few months, but hope to keep the gender a surprise.

P&B: Do you have any name possibilities that you’re willing to share?

Jody: Names, yes, names. This one has been difficult for us, and to be honest we have not spent a lot of time talking about names yet. I am open to any name suggestions you might have….please share suggestions!

P&B: How is Charlie preparing for his important role of Big Brother?

Jody: At first when we told him he was going to be a big brother I do not think he believed us since he was probably thinking, “That is what you told me last time.” Now, I think he has embraced the fact that he is going to be a big brother.

He told us if it is a girl we should name her Sally and if it is a boy we should name him Charles or Clifford. I am sure you figured out that he loves the movie “Cars” and also the books and show “Clifford.” His real name is Charlie and I believe he thinks Charles would be cool, as that is so close to his name.

He tells me on a regular basis that he is going to be a big help when the baby arrives. He said he plans to hold him or her every day. At least once a week he asks to see my “tummy.”

A few days ago he said, “Mom, I think the baby is really growing!” He likes to kiss my stomach and sometimes he tells me he can hear the baby crying.

Read on for our full interview! (Our previous interview with Angela can be found HERE!)

Pinks & Blues: Are you excited to go back to work on “The Office” now that the writers’ strike is over?

Angela Kinsey: I can’t wait to go back to work! Our writers are there working away but the actors do not go back until early March.

P&B: We bet you’ll be pampered by the cast and crew!

Angela: I can tell you that our cast and crew are really like family. So I know I’ll be in good hands. 😉

sag-carpet-angela-kinsey21.jpgActress Angela Kinsey, who plays the uptight accountant Angela Martin on NBC’s hit show “The Office,” has a lot to be excited about this year!

Not only did the entire cast of “The Office” win the SAG Award for “Best Ensemble Cast” last month, but Angela is expecting her first baby – a girl! – in May!

We at Pinks & Blues have chosen Angela as the celebrity honoree for our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower!

We will shower her with over 60 amazing gifts from our wonderful Baby Shower sponsors – and we are holding a contest for another lucky mama-to-be to win the exact same Baby Shower gifts that Angela will receive (worth over $2,000.00)!

We recently had a virtual chat with Angela! Read on for our full interview with this smart, funny and talented mama-to-be!

Pinks & Blues: We hear you’re having a girl! Congratulations! Did you have any “girl” intuition before you found out, or was it a total shock?

Angela Kinsey: In most of my dreams, my baby was a girl. So maybe that was a form of intuition!

P&B: You look incredible! We guess that debunks the Old Wives’ tale that “girls drain your beauty!” How has your “pre-event” beauty regimen changed now that you’re pregnant? (Can you still get your shoes on by yourself!?)

Angela: Ha! This question made me laugh because for the SAG Awards I had to have my hair and makeup gals fasten my high heel straps! I couldn’t reach them! My beauty regimen other than that hasn’t changed. Well maybe there is more snacking!

P&B: We miss “The Office!” What have you been doing to keep busy during the writer’s strike?

Angela: Well being pregnant has kept me busy. There is so much I want to do to my little fixer upper house before the baby comes. I feel like there are not enough hours in the day!

P&B: Do you have “Mom jeans” ready for when you come home from the hospital!?

Angela: Yikes! Mom Jeans! Ummm, no. My Mom, the fabulous Bertie Kinsey, is an amazing seamstress. She quilts and sews and is so crafty. We call her the Southern Martha Stewart! For Christmas I brought home a bunch of my old jeans and she cut out the front of them and put a softy stretchy material for my expanding belly. That’s working for now. Thanks Mom!

P&B: OK, the most important question of all… were you rooting for the Patriots or the Giants? (And remember we’re from New England!!)

Angela: Now ladies, I love New England and that foxy Tom Brady, but my hubby grew up outside of New York, so sorry….we are a Giants house! I mean, I’m really a Cowboys fan, but for this Super Bowl I was rooting for NY. 🙂

cov.jpgHave you seen Trista Sutter on the cover of the January 16th issue of US Weekly!?

Talk about a hot mama!

The Pinks & Blues Girls recently chatted with the former Bachelorette, now a mom to 6-month-old Max with husband Ryan Sutter, about reclaiming that fabulous figure after gaining 30 pregnancy pounds.

We also got the chance to talk with the owner of Revolution Lifestyle, whose products Trista used as part of her diet and exercise plan.

Read on for our chat with Trista (fittingly, the new mom started a line of Eco-conscious diaper bags!) and Revolution Lifestyle!

Pinks & Blues: We loved your feature in US Weekly and you look FABULOUS, Trista! What helped you stick to your plan?

Trista Sutter: Thank you! It was nerve-wracking having that shoot hanging over my head for a few months, but on the flip side…it was EXCELLENT motivation! There were a lot of things that helped me stick to my plan and willpower was surely one of them. I also wanted to feel healthy and fit, be able to look in the mirror and feel confident, fit into my clothes, feel sexy for my husband, and of course, have the energy I need as a new mom. I worked out with a trainer and every 1-2 weeks, I did a body composition measurement, so that also helped a lot…like studying for a test and getting a good grade every couple weeks.

P&B: What’s your fitness and nutrition plan to have enough energy to soon be chasing after a crawling and/or walking Max… all while trying to conceive again, as well!?

Trista: As soon as my doctor gave me the go-ahead to start working out, I was at the gym for hour-long sessions on average, 3-4 times/week up until the day of the shoot. I also tried keeping active at home, whether it be going on walks around my neighborhood, or doing workout videos, like Billy Blanks.

My nutrition plan wasn’t really about dieting…just eating healthier. As I’m sure you know…when you’re breastfeeding, you are actually supposed to increase your caloric intake and for me, my doctor recommended about 500 extra calories/day. That meant not really cutting out food, but just modifying it to include more balance.

I kept track of my calories at Revolution Lifestyle – their easy-to-use tool really helped me stay in check. You know, it’s really all about diet and exercise. If you eat in moderation, with a healthy balance and work on your cardiovascular and muscular fitness, you will have the energy that you need to chase after any baby. 🙂

slide10_trista.jpgP&B: This one’s from Audrey, who has three boys 3 years old and under, and is expecting her fourth boy in June(!)… When you put your bikini on in Hawaii for your US photo shoot and got to strut your stuff, what was going through your head?

Trista: First of all…kudos to Audrey!! I can’t IMAGINE!! Bless your heart!! So…to answer your question… I was actually excited. I hadn’t been in a bathing suit since my first trimester of pregnancy, and I felt really good. I still have a little toning to do, but overall, I felt proud of what I had accomplished and confident enough to walk around without always being covered up.

P&B: Has Max given you a different motivation in maintaining a healthy lifestyle? Do you feel it is important for kids to be proud of their parents?

Trista: Definitely, although I think that the most important thing is to do it for yourself. As the wife of a triathlete and active outdoorsman, our lifestyle has always been focused on health and wellness, but I have to admit that since I met him, I had slacked off. I used to dance for the Miami Heat and was a physical therapist, so I was always pretty fit, but didn’t really workout much until I was on Dancing with the Stars.

I now have a greater appreciation for my health because I want to be add to the quality of life I have with my new family. I definitely think it’s important for kids to be proud of their parents. It’s also super important to be good role models and I want to be that for Max.

P&B: So besides trying for another baby, what are your plans for 2008? Will we be seeing you and Ryan on television again in the future!?

bag.jpgTrista: For 2008, my priorities are… 1. Being the best mom and wife I can be (and keeping our fingers crossed for another baby blessing!). 2. Spending time expanding my new line of diaper bags. It’s called Trista Baby and it’s been a great opportunity in that it I can work from home and be here every day for Max. 3. Maintaining (and hopefully surpassing!) the health and fitness level that I’ve worked hard to achieve. 4. Working with companies to help increase awareness about fertility issues and anything baby related, as I’ve been through a lot with trying for 2 years, then developing gestational diabetes, preclampsia and HELLP syndrome, and now living the life I always dreamed of as a mom.

And now our questions for Revolution Lifestyle:

ban.jpgPinks & Blues: Tell us about the Revolution Abdominal Cuts workout supplements that Trista took… what are their benefits and why did you put Trista on those particular supplements?

Revolution Lifestyle: Revolution Abdominal Cuts are designed to target that tough to reach fat in the midsection – clinically proven to reduce and prevent storage of bodyfat in the mid section (including stomach, hips, and buttocks). Trista was losing bodyfat in every area but this area. We gave her Abdominal Cuts because she wanted to target these areas while still breastfeeding. The components that make up Abdominal Cuts are derived from healthy oils that had no stimulant effect on Max.

P&B: Trista’s 2,000 calorie/day eating plan seems pretty reasonable for breastfeeding mothers. What do you suggest for moms who do not breastfeed?

RL: On the website you will find a basal metabolic rate calculator. This is designed to calculate each persons daily need of calories, then breaks up the calories into a meal plan. Revolution Lifestyle did a survey and found that 86% of women had no idea how many calories a day they needed. It is vital that we educate ourselves as we all need a different number.

Actually, we will soon be running an educational campaign called “Know Your Number” encouraging people to understand this very point. Eating just 500 extra calories per day can result in one pound of weight GAIN in a week. The calculation will aid in educating people how to control portion size through watching calories. If a persons daily BMR (basal metabolic rate) is 1500 calories, eating a piece of cheesecake after dinner wouldn’t be wise as it contains almost 750 calories per ounce – that is half of your DAILY recommended amount and will put you over your allowed number.

P&B: Snacking seems to be the downfall for a lot of people looking to lose weight/get healthy. What are some of the snacks you recommend for sticking to a healthy diet? *Note: Breast feeding moms should add 500 calories to their number.

RL: We believe that people make losing weight an annual trend instead of a lifestyle, so we encourage realistic snacking. If we make our lives too complicated we wont stick with a plan, so keep it simple and just watch the number of calories you are eating. Examples of healthy snacks can be found on our website at http://www.revolutionlifestyle.com/bmr.html

P&B: We’re all looking for energy, especially moms chasing after kids. What are some great tips and strategies for quick energy boosts throughout the day?

RL: A great way to prevent mid afternoon energy crashes is to snack on lean proteins. Protein drinks and bars are an excellent snack, as most of them do not contain simple sugars. Keep the sugar out of your afternoon snacks and you will be better at keeping up with those little ones! Weight loss is a short-term goal, healthy living is a lifelong goal. Moderation can be applied to everything in life, especially when you are talking about food!

Mom, celebrity trainer, author and spokesperson Kathy Kaehler recently chatted with the Pinks & Blues Girls!

Kathy, a mother of 11-year-old twins and a 7 year-old (all boys!), has devoted her life to helping people live happy, productive and healthy lives.

For 13 years, she appeared on “The Today Show” as the fitness correspondent while training such mom celebrities as Julia Roberts, Michelle Pfeiffer, Cindy Crawford, Denise Richards, Claudia Schiffer and Kim Basinger.

Kathy shares with us her tips for getting kids to stay active, how new moms should ease back into working out, her new projects and more.

Read on for our chat with this fit and fabulous mom!

Pinks & Blues: Happy New Year! What new projects do you have on the horizon for 2008?

Kathy Kaehler: I’m starting the year off with an article on hanes.com/kids that gives moms some easy and fun tips on how to get their kids off the couch and onto their feet in 2008! It’s all about creating a healthy lifestyle that‘s approachable and realistic for our kids to follow and will last throughout the whole year. In addition, I have some new projects on my website (KathyKaehlerFitness.com). I am selling my workout videos and am still teaching classes everyday and training celeb moms like Julia Roberts, Lisa Marie Presley and Kim Basinger.

P&B: Many of our readers are expectant moms or new moms. What do you recommend for exercise during pregnancy? And, of course, afterward to tone up those pile-on-the pounds places, such as abs, hips and things?

Kathy: The best program is the one that I did with Cindy Crawford. It is a video called A New Dimension. I compiled a variety of programs to do as you reach certain weeks in your pregnancy. The best exercise to do while you’re pregnant is swimming. I felt amazing in the water and my joints never bothered me.

And for new moms, my advice is to always start off slowly. Don’t think your body will bounce back within days. It took you 9 months to create this beautiful life so now your body needs time to come back. New moms need to follow programs that make them work towards mini goals, such as walking 3 miles a week or increasing the number of free weight repetitions. Once these goals have been achieved, mom gets a boost of confidence and is able to stay positive when working towards the next set of goals. Do not put too much pressure on yourself or your body!

P&B: We see that you’re very interested in getting kids to get off the couch and get moving, which is so great and so important for creating a life-long interest in exercise. What is your advice to get a reluctant child up and moving?

Kathy: Make it fun and challenging. Kids love to be able to count how many jumps or kicks they can do or how fast did they can do them. Create races or challenges in and around your house. Your kids will surprise you at how competitive they really are. The fun factor is also key – kids don’t mind fitness as long as it is fun. In addition, fitness isn’t always what we think of in the traditional sense. It can be bowling, putt putt golf, tag, frisbee, trampoline-activities like these get different parts of your kids’ bodies moving and their heart rates up, and most of the time they don’t realize it! Finally, make sure your kids are comfortable, not only with the activity, but also while doing it! My boys love wearing Hanes tagless tees and underwear because they don’t itch and are super soft, which means they can run, jump and bend any way they please.

P&B: Do you have any particular fitness programs that you recommend for kids?

Kathy: I have a new program called the “Schoolhouse Workout” that is about to launch on my site for FREE! Each month, a new workout video will be released online as part of the program. The routines are for kids of all ages and can be done both at home and at school. Most of the routines are like mini fitness breaks that involve 5-10 exercises, all designed to improve strength, coordination and energy. One that I love is doing five jumping jacks and running in place for 10 seconds. It’s easy and quick and I’ve found that these routines are particularly successful with kids when they’re done in a relaxed environment (no whistles!), and with their friends, classmates or siblings. For most kids, doing exercises with a group is more fun and motivational. Keeping them short and quick also holds their attention and trust me, 2 or 3 fitness breaks throughout the day really add up in the end! I am also really excited about some of the people that I am working with – each month there is a new, surprise host.


P&B: Sharon is 55 years old and is beginning training for her first sprint distance triathalon! What is your advice in encouraging women in their 40’s and 50’s to begin exercise routines?

Kathy: First and foremost, that’s wonderful – congratulations and good luck! Being active at this point in your life is incredibly important, as so many things are changing in our bodies; babies, child rearing, menopause, peri menopause, aging, slowing metabolism, bone loss… You name it, it is happening. So that is why I wrote my most recent book, Fit and Sexy for Life. In the book I have a program that hits all these topics, but most importantly, I talk about how exercise and nutrition play such a critical role at this stage in a woman’s life.

My advice is to sit down and figure out what excites and motivates you and then break it down so it’s realistic and approachable. Also, tell someone about it; your mom, your friend, your boss. You never know, one of them might join you. You can cheer each other on and motivate each other! If there is one thing to remember as we get older, it’s that we need to make fitness a part of our everyday life in some shape or form. This doesn’t mean you need to be at the gym 7 days a week. Go 2 days a week and participate in a class. Walk your dog another day or with your friends around your community or your kids in the park. Take another couple days for my “Take Five” workout, both in the morning and at night-it’s only 10 minutes a day! These are 5-minute blasts that get your heart rate up and offer a quick fix of energy. If you move your body in some way everyday you’ll sleep better, lessen the severity of hot flashes, get a boost in your libido and of course, have more energy for things like triathalons!

P&B: We love your “Kaehler Calendar” idea, which you mentioned in your Hanes article. What was the impetus behind that idea, and how has it helped you family stay organized?

Kathy: I once did a “The Today Show” segment on tips on how to keep workouts a part of everyday life. One of my tips was spacing them out and inputting them into a calendar or blackberry. This way, workouts are not only a part of your schedule, but it also allows you to gradually increase the length or number of your workouts. I started the program and my kids got so into it that they came onto “The Today Show” with me to talk about it and we had the best time. I was absolutely thrilled to help hanes.com/kids with this tool because I’ve found it to be so beneficial in my own life in keeping my family in organized chaos.

For most women and kids, fitness is a part of life, but it doesn’t alone define them. We have so many other things going on. For my boys, it’s school, auditions and sports. Our Kaehler Calendar from Hanes helps us keep on track and it also reminds us to have a well-rounded day and life. Most important, my kids love seeing a full week and all they’ve accomplished!

Actress Shanna Moakler (Crowned, Entourage, Dancing with the Stars, Meet the Barkers, Pacific Blue, The Wedding Singer) recently chatted exclusively with the Pinks & Blues Girls!

Shanna is currently starring in Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants (she held the title of Miss USA in 1995) on The CW with Carson Kressley and Cynthia Garrett.

Shanna shares with us what her family did for the holidays (including how she and her husband, drummer Travis Barker, celebrate their youngest daughter’s December 24th birthday), where she likes to shop, her decision to go vegetarian, her future plans and more.

Read on for our chat with this beautiful, down-to-earth star!

Pinks & Blues: You have a lot of exciting projects going on right now! TV shows, appearances, photo shoots, interviews… what do you love most about your work?

Shanna Moakler: I love being in front of the camera. When I was a child I used to watch old musicals like Singin’ in the Rain or The Easter Parade and I thought, “I want to do that!” I loved them because they did everything! They sang, danced, acted and modeled. And now I get the chance!

P&B: How was Christmas for your kids (Atiana, 8; Landon, 4; Alabama, 2)?

Shanna: My kids and I spent a fun day at Disneyland and watched the holiday fireworks and parade! Then, of course, family flew in, and we made gumdrop trees and spent a warm, wonderful present-filled day at home!

P&B: Do you do anything to let little Alabama (born on December 24, 2005) celebrate Christmas and her birthday separately?

Shanna: I celebrate Alabama’s birthday at “the half” (at 1 and 1/2 and 2 and 1/2) so she has her own special day and people aren’t burnt out from the holiday!

P&B: What are some of your favorite places to shop for your kids? How about for yourself?

Shanna: I shop for the kids at the Gap! They grow so fast! I have 3 kids, so I’d spend a fortune otherwise! And I like the Gap Kids clothes. I also get some specialty pieces at Fred Segal or Kitson Kids. As for myself, I like to shop everywhere! Boutiques, mostly!

P&B: You recently decided to go vegetarian. What made you make that decision and what has been the hardest part?

Shanna: My husband is a veggie and I always wanted to try it. Our first step was making our entire family go “organic.” I only wish we had done it sooner! I also read a book called “Skinny Bitch”, which opened my eyes to cruelty to animals, and that was it! It hasn’t been that hard for me… Los Angeles offers lots of great alternatives!

P&B: You held a poll on your MySpace page for your fans to help you name your new cat. You seem to be really great to your fans. How important are they to you?

Shanna: My fans are amazing! That even feels weird for me to say, “My fans!” I guess I don’t look at them as fans, but as friends or supporters. I didn’t come from a famous family or have a Hollywood edge. I had to work and audition and get rejected 1,000 times, so I appreciate when someone says they liked something I did. Because without them I wouldn’t be able to make the next small step to the next project. And I am very far from where I’d like to be work-wise, so they make what it is I like to do possible.

P&B: What are your plans for 2008?

Shanna: Hopefully to get more scripted projects! I really love reality TV and there are talks about a second season for Crowned… but I’d love to do more film!

Don’t forget to catch Shanna on Crowned, Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW!

When Dad has made Throwback Thursday appearances in the past – like here and here – people have commented that he looks like different celebrities. Depending on the photo, we’ve gotten Scott Baio, Al Pacino and Rod Stewart.

Although someone (C from The Island) did comment once that he looked like Dustin Hoffman.

That one we’ve heard before. Many times. In fact, at least once a week someone will come up to Dad and ask if he has ever been told he looks like Dustin Hoffman… and sometimes people insist he is Dustin Hoffman (especially in places like Martha’s Vineyard or New York City), even as Dad insists he’s not!

So this Throwback Thursday we’ll go back to the summer of 1995, when Dustin Hoffman came to Rhode Island to film a movie called American Buffalo, and Dad was literally picked off the street to be his stand-in during the filming of the movie.

Here’s the article in The Providence Journal from June 20, 1995 on how it all went down:

mail-1.jpg

article.jpg

Here’s Dad getting interviewed by NBC 10 (our NBC affiliate in RI) just after he was chosen (see Audrey and me in the background!?):

mail-3.jpg

Here’s me (Jane) and Mom on the set with the REAL Dustin Hoffman (who is very funny and nice in person):

mail-4.jpg

As a gift from the crew during filming, Dad and the other two stand-ins received their own director’s chairs. When Rhode Island Monthly magazine did an article on Dad, they had him pose with his chair (how “Hollywood” does Dad look here!?):

mail-2.jpg

And here I zoomed in on a shot of the cast and crew. Can you pick out Dad and Dustin Hoffman? How about Dennis Franz? Oh, and see the young guy with the blue shirt and sunglasses? Audrey and I had the biggest crush on him that summer – but we thought he was SO old because… he was in college!

image-82.jpg

So that was our first little brush with Hollywood… what a fun summer it was! We have lots of other fun stories about Dustin Hoffman “sightings” (people mistaking Dad for Dustin Hoffman) that we’ll have to blog about some other time!

Pinks & Blues Girls Blog is your Throwback Thursday Headquarters!

Join in on the Throwback Thursday fun! Sign Mr. Linky so others know you’ve participated and can check out your Throwback Thursday photos on your site, and don’t forget to leave a comment!
