On her post-pregnancy life:
"Ever since I had the baby, I can't remember anything. Seriously this child stole my brain. I'm sure I'm losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can't keep up with everything. I've got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby. It's like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times."
On getting by with help from her gal pals:
"Oh my gosh, I don't know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn't had my girlfriends. They have literally gotten me up out of bed, taken my clothes off, put me in the shower, dressed me, and said, 'Hey, you can do this,' put my high heels on and pushed me out the door! But you do have to work at friendships as much as you would any relationship. So, even when I'm really busy, we always manage to find each other on Saturday nights for a drink."
On her women empowerment philosophy:
"As women, we shrug and smile and say, 'Oh... me?' because it makes it socially acceptable for us to be successful. But there is a balance between being an arrogant jerk and being someone who is proud of their accomplishments. We need to let successful women show off and support them. Because men don't spend anytime putting themselves down. They don't waste their breath. You have to be the best version of yourself and, if that means you have to be a bit self-promoting, then it's okay. It really is. Because who's going to believe in you more than yourself? Other than, maybe, your mother."
On her Pinterest obsession:
"My husband says, 'Are you buying those things?' and I'm like, "No, I'm just putting pictures of them on my electronic pinboard.' Then I get to organize them: So this is my dream kitchen, these are my favorite hand bags, these are hotels I want to visit, jewelry I really need to by... I have a whole board of monogrammed accessories, I like to my name on everything."
