Frozen Yogurt Anyone?

Ladies and presenting...LOCAL YOGURT!!!

I am proud and excited to say that my latest venture has now opened, Local Yogurt.

Local Yogurt is Durham, North Carolina's first locally owned, independent frozen yogurt shop featuring the tart, creamy, plain flavor of yogurt that pinkberry has made famous (think yummy real yogurt, frozen), along with three other regularly rotating flavors (we have chocolate, peanut butter, and coffee right now) and a host of toppings including fresh mango, berries, and banana, as well as various candies and cereal you loved when you were a kid such as Fruity Pebbles, Cap N' Crunch, and Golden Grahams.

Local Yogurt has been a dream of mine for several years and I have been lucky enough to open it with a very good friend (who shall remain a nameless, faceless yogurt lover to the public), Ted Domville (the chef at, and my darling husband, Matthew.

Visit us online at and please, if you're in the area or driving or flying through, come see us in person and get some natural, low fat, low calorie, DELICIOUS frozen yogurt made with real yogurt. It's locally owned and operated and we will feature a local topping of the month (think Foster's cookies, Dali Mama chocolate, 9th Street Bakery granola, etc.).

*localyogurt * good & good for you
* natural frozen yogurt. fresh & fun toppings *

Hiched or Ditched?

This winter I had the opportunity to shoot two episodes of a new wedding reality TV show for the CW Network. Three months later, I just got word that "Hitched or Ditched" will air on Tuesday, May 26th and run through June 30th! It was such a crazy, fun, wild, interesting, and exhausting experience (not to mention hilarious at times) that I cannot WAIT to see how it all plays out on TV and once it's been edited.

The show revolves around couples who have been dating for a long time and for one reason or another have not yet gotten married. The couples are surprised with a dream wedding and, this being reality TV, are faced with a lot of drama and decisions regarding their upcoming nuptials. I was lucky enough to plan the two Charlotte weddings along with my friend, Ivy Robinson. While we planned both weddings together, you will see her on camera with one couple, and me with the other. Will they or won't they? Tune in to find out!

Here is a teaser that the CW posted on Facebook:

Charlotte- May 26th
Boston-June 2nd
San Diego-June 9th
New Jersey- June 16th
Chicago-June 23rd
Charlotte- June 30th
