Weekly Coffee Date

Still life interior details, cup of coffee and a book near white cozy chair

  Can we just sit down for coffee? And talk about anything we want for a little while? I’ve been thinking for a good while now about starting a Friday series—to share a little update about life that week, a few favorite things, what I’m reading, what I’m listening to, advice I’ve heard or found…

Hello Hello Hello!

andie mitchell

Friends, friends, friends! What a WHIRLWIND the last three months has been! Since the book came out in January, I’ve been going non-stop. It’s been the best kind of adventure, but I’ve missed you! Here are a few highlights:

Let’s Catch Up

working from home

It’s been so long since I’ve written about what’s going on in my everyday life. Let’s catch up! For the past six months I’ve worked as Social Media Director for The Shriver Report — Maria Shriver’s nonprofit initiative dedicated to chronicling the status of American women and all of the shifts in American culture that affect…

My book, It Was Me All Along, is available for preorder!

it was me all along

There really aren’t cards I could send with meaningful enough words — I’ve looked. Thank you for blowing me away with unimaginable kindness. With love the size of Alaska. I read all of your comments, your emails, tweets, Instagram comments, and more, and I was sweating from the warmth. I’ve said it before, but this time…

On eating meat


photo by Kevin Dooley I, Andie Mitchell, am crazy about animals. So let’s start there. I’m one of those annoying people who emails friends with the latest video of a squirrel and a duck playing together. I can’t pass a dog on the street without breaking into a wide-eyed grin and saying hello in this…

Here are some of the photos I’ve taken recently. I think they show that I brunch a lot. See what you can make of them: Brunch at Fonda. Huevos divorciados and a bloody mary, or two. Brunch at Hundred Acres. This was our shared starter and no, three was certainly not enough. Small (and oddly…

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays friends! I’ve been home in Massachusetts with family since Christmas Eve, and it’s been lovely. I was able to spend time with family and friends, eat eat eat, and most importantly, get up close and personal with the love of my life, Leonardo DiCaprio, in the Wolf of Wall Street, on Christmas day….

NYC Life

So, I’m in love with another city. Big time. It’s been a week and a half and I’m already convinced of the goodness of my decision to pack up and move here. To Manhattan. I’m not sure how to distill it for you. I’ve thought long and hard about how I’d tell you what I…

A Life Post

Andie, Pamela, Ali

This post was incredibly difficult to write, and even harder to publish.  Some of you have been here, with me, for a long time—perhaps all three of the years that I’ve written this blog. You’re familiar enough with my life. And some of you are new. For both of you, a story. Five or so…

Putting My Mom on a Diet: The Plan

ice cream with strawberries

When devising this plan, my main goal was two-fold: to keep it simple and to be realistic. I really believe in playing to your strengths rather than fighting against your weaknesses, and when it comes to dieting, that translates to: it’s better to work within the realm of your taste preferences than to struggle to…

Girls’ Weekend in Vegas

vegas 2013-6

I spent last weekend in Vegas with my best friends. Now, I’ve been to Vegas five times. I’ve stayed and eaten all over the strip, but this time was, in a word, unforgettable. Here are a handful of photos from our stay, snapped oh-so-professionally on my iPhone. Sourdough waffles at Bouchon in the Venetian, where…

Boston Love


I’ve stepped away from the blog this week because, well, everything I thought to post just seemed so trivial in light of the recent Boston bombings. Boston is where I’m from, where the whole of my family resides. Publishing a recipe didn’t feel right. And so, in lieu of anything culinary or creative, I’ll just stop…
