Before he turned 30, golf legend Gary Player became the third person to win the Grand Slam. In 1974, after winning 165 tournaments, Player was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Player and his wife, Vivienne, live on a stud farm outside of Colesberg, South Africa. They also spend time at their home on Florida’s Jupiter Island.
I was looking through some old photos, and I found this picture. My husband was testing a waterproof camera and got this shot of our son (then two-years old) playing in one of the pools at the Kalahari Waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells. I ending up writing about the trip for the New York Post. This photo didn’t make it in. So, here it is.
In honor of tonight’s season finale of “The Big Bang Theory,” I thought I’d have a bongo-off with Sheldon Cooper. Who’s the winner? You be the judge.
Spinach and kale quiche for dinner. Fresh pineapples for dessert. It’s what was for dinner tonight. Everything was really good, if I do say so myself.
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz remembers traveling to the Bahamas as a child and getting ill on the small plane that took his family from Nassau to their destination. “I had terrible motion sickness when I was younger and I barfed into the bag,” says the 33-year-old musician, who also hosts the Oxygen reality series “Best Ink.” There was no place to throw the bag away, so we had to go through customs holding it. That was a little weird, but the trip overall was awesome!”
I’m a sucker for hand prints. Foot prints, too. This year for Mother’s Day, Kyle made me a gift designed around his hand prints at preschool.
Every year, I go to the Coach store and buy my mother a scarf, or a handbag, or a wallet, or a hat, or a pair of shoes — things she likes, but would never buy for herself. She tells me often that the only nice clothes she owns are the ones I bought for her. This isn’t entirely true. My siblings have given her some lovely things or gifted her with money to buy whatever she wants. But it is true that the two of us have gone shopping together the most.
Did you know that parents have an official day? In the United States, Parents’ Day falls on July 28 this year. But in Korea, Parents’ Day is today. What’s that, you say? You’ve never heard of Parents’ Day? Truth be told, I wasn’t familiar with the day myself. But now that I’m a mom, hey, I’ll take whatever holiday you want to throw my way.
This is where I plan on spending most of the summer. Sitting on my front porch. Watching the kid ride his bike and drinking my LaCroix.

Where would Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler — aka Shamie — go for their honeymoon? I asked Mayim Bialik, the actress who plays one-half of the geeky dream team on “The Big Bang Theory”: “Probably Stockholm, home of the Nobel Prize, maybe, or somewhere with lots of trains, since Sheldon loves trains.”
