Happy weekend, guys. We made it. #fbf
Happy Birthday to the love of my life and my favorite human. There’s no one more humble, talented, honest, supportive, passionate and just so deeply and unflinchingly good. I thank my lucky stars every day that we get to share our lives together. Cheers to your best year yet, T.
One of the very best perks of this gig is the multitude of opportunities to be creative with these extraordinarily talented friends of mine. @jennstreicher, @streicherhair, @kevinmichaelericson, @cristinaehrlich and @photobyjennajones- you all bring so much to table as humans and artists and I’m lucky to have a front row seat.
Still pinching myself over all of this. Emmy nominees? Agh! I have loved @niecynash1 forever (since Reno 911 days)- she is an absolute force in all she does and her work in @whentheyseeus is no exception. Thank you for pairing us together and allowing us to grace your cover @variety. The idea that I am afforded the opportunities to chat with folks I admire like Niecy is just one of the perks of this job. #Emmys #thisisus #holycrapthisiscool ****LINK to article in Bio.
Started my weekend off right with our #thisisus cast and this @rosie_assoulin number.
Further evidence that being a dancer was never really in the cards for me. 🤷♀️👯♀️ #tbt
The Pearsons are coming back atcha September 24th and BOY OH BOY it’s gonna be good. Just you wait. (Ps: @sullivangrams is very much still on the show but was out of town for this photo). #thisisus
Coming soon. #newtunes
Any member of congress who is not actively in the fight for gun safety reform, is not fit to represent us. Period. The inaction is reprehensible. 2 mass shootings in 24 hours? We simply can’t stand by and let this continue to happen. #VoteThemOut #gunreformnow
He’s not really on Instagram (twitter is more his medium) but it’s his Birthday and he’s one of my very favorite people. Happy Birthday to the man, the myth, the LEGEND. ❤️ you, Ken Olin.
That’s a wrap on episode 401. Bring on more of that sweet 70’s fashion, please. But....Swipe to see how this first episode back really aged me and @miloanthonyventimiglia. (It’s not age makeup, it’s that app, guys...lol) #fbf #thisisus
Ummm....I am still in shock and overwhelmed but filled with gratitude to the @televisionacad for the nomination in a category with such undeniably strong and talented women, all of whom I absolutely stand in awe of. After 3 seasons and 54 episodes, it’s a tremendous honor to have the hard work of our crew, cast and creators recognized amongst TV’s best and brightest. Congrats to my TIU fam (Mi, SKB, Sully, Ron, Michael and Phylicia) on their individual nods. #ThisisUs is the job of a lifetime and I wake up grateful every day to be on this ride. #emmys #whatishappening #gratitude
What an honor to have @thecatdaddy himself in our home. We’re extremely lucky that all of our pets(2 dogs and 3 cats) get along well but we have a few behavioral issues with our sweet Olivia to address and holy cow did we learn a lot. Thank you so much for your time, patience and mojo, Jackson! #jacksongalaxy #adoptdontshop
Just trying to be natural and take an unposed picture. 🤦♀️ #coolcoolcool #whatisashpointingat #ilovemyfriends
Mom and Dad are back shooting the very first scene of season 4. Can’t wait for you to see!🤗 #thisisus
Happy Birthday to my fav TV hubby and friend, @miloanthonyventimiglia. This journey wouldn’t be the same without you. Hope this is your best year yet, Mi! ❤️ you.
Congrats TEAMUSA! Thanks for continuing to inspire us all with your fortitude and insane talent and using your platform to give a voice to the voiceless. Now it’s time for these women to be paid what they deserve. #equalpay
Paris already feels like a dream. Here’s a #fbf to Wednesday night’s Valentino Ball at the Italian Embassy.... and another cape because capes are everything. Thanks to my friends @jennstreicher, @blakeerik, @kevinmichaelericson, @jonny_stills and @cristinaehrlich for all the laughs and glamorous moments. 💗💗💗💗💗 📸 by @jonny_stills
I was today years old when I finally visited my dad at work. He’s been a captain at @americanair since before I was born (he just celebrated his 40 year anniversary at the company- go dad!) and today was my first time ever flying with him! Also my stepmom (an AA flight attendant) was working our flight as well so I got some face time with both them on their breaks (and took the requisite cockpit shots before we left London). Also, the landing was 👍🏼, dad. BEST TRIP HOME EVER. #captaindon #prouddaughter
Another epic trip to Paris in the books....Thank you to our home away from home, @hotellutetia, for taking such incredible care of us for the second year in a row. We were fortunate enough to get a sneak peak last year *right before they officially opened and it remains one of my favorite hotel experiences to date. #hotellutetia #pariscoutureweek
Thank you for the festive evening as your guest at the #vogueparisfoundation gala and the stunning gold sequined cape, @ralphlauren!! Any occasion to wear a cape is a-okay in my book. 📸 by @virgile.guinard
Paris with my ❤️. 📸 by the great @jonny_stills
Sheer electric blue caftan dreams c/o @peter_dundas and @dundasworld. We also changed into this look in a van in 7 minutes (eye shadow change included) on the side of the road. Glamorous! Ps: that’s a built-in bodysuit- not my underwear 🙄#pariscoutureweek
When the man himself wants to adjust the lining on the dress he designed.... ⭐️ 💫 Can’t wait for your show tomorrow, @peter_dundas! #pariscoutureweek
I would legit still wear this entire ensemble... minus the bangs my mom clearly cut. #fbf
What an honor to witness this union of two of my favorite people. Wishing you a lifetime of health and happiness, @carlyccraig and @zacharyreiter! Welcome to the club... @taylordawesgoldsmith and I can’t wait to grow old all together!! Also, peep my amazing stepmom (and Carly’s mama), @marzolsonmoore showing you how it’s done on the dance floor. 💗💗💗
A Polaroid from my very 1st pro photo shoot ever. I think this was for a Wet Seal holiday catalog? 1999, Pre-Candy days.... #fbf
I took my role as Adelaide in our 6th grade production of “Guys and Dolls” VERY seriously. Highlight of my life. My mom even let me dye my hair red. Swipe to see some rehearsal pics where I’m really in the moment during a version of “Take Back Your Mink”.... #tbt
There are some many lessons to be learned within the majesty of the mountains and I’m ever grateful to get the opportunity to experience it alongside friends like @melissaarnot and @adrienneschaefer. It was my first dance with technical mountaineering and boy am I FULLY in. There are so many places I’m hoping to check off my ever growing list but I do know that I can’t wait to visit you again, Mt Baker. #whyihike
Mark your calendars! Season 4 starts Tuesday, September 24th!💕 #thisisus
Happy Father’s Day to the best ever. Love you to the moon, Dad!!
Baby Me rocking that one strap overall look. #fbf
Happiest Birthday to the lady with the best brows and the biggest heart. Cheers to you and here’s to your best year yet, @kristiestreicher!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Lovely evening at the @modernluxury #laconfidentialimpactawards. Our boss, Dan Fogelman, was honored with the Visionary Award and got to hang with one of my fav guys, @justinhartley. @jennstreicher did some maaaajjjjor retro-inspired makeup, @streicherhair created the waves of my dreams, @kevinmichaelericson made me a disco queen.... and a fun night was had by all.
Brilliant. I concur with the rest of the world and this show is everything. I need more. You were right, @sterlingkbrown. I devoured both seasons in nearly one sitting. Queen Phoebe, we stan. #fleabag
Yes that is a turtleneck underneath that zip-up cardigan. Oh the early 2000s.... 🤷♀️ Also that quote. How did I somehow unlearn what I seemed to know at 16? Don’t worry- it took another 15 years but I figured it out. #neverchangeforaguy #realtalk #fbf
There’s no way to distill this experience down to a few sentences. There’s no way to encapsulate what coursed through our veins and brains living in the mountains this past week. It will come in time. I think I’m slowly learning that I feel most like me when I’m outdoors. It’s couldn’t be any more outside my every day realm and yet there’s something entirely refreshing about being tasked with nothing more than breathing and slowly putting one foot in front of the other. One thing I know for certain is that this trip was what it was thanks in large part to the company. Being able to adventure alongside those you love deeply ( @streicherhair, @chaseweideman, @thejendaltonshow) and new friends alike (@starfire_reid, @julianapse, @tyler__reid, @sherpatseringdolker), is an absolute gamechanger. We shared everything: laughs, toilet paper, snacks, skincare, the silly songs that got stuck in our heads, milk tea, selfies, the “happy naturals”, etc.... all the makings of a quality trip to the most remarkable place any of us have ever been. I’m also left inspired by the collective perseverance this group had to help each other every step of the way and to watch as we all met this shared goal of reaching base camp together is something I’ll never forget. Thank you to our friends at @eddiebauer for making this happen! And to the true MVP of this trek, @melissaarnot: thank you for sharing such a substantial piece of yourself and this second home of yours with us. It’s every bit as magical as you described: Your expertise, your stories, your wisdom, your belief in us.... set the tone for this entire experience.... The funny thing is, Melissa kept mentioning this idea of meditating and making goals while we were in the midst of the “pain cave”. It’s easy to daydream and make big plans when you’re down at sea level but it’s a much taller order to do it while in the grips of something truly difficult. Message received. I dug deep while in the midst of all of those pressure breaths and made a mental list of things that scared me but I was anxious to tackle. Now that I’m back on solid ground, I can’t wait to home and get to it. #whyihike #ebpartner
From drinking water to taking @NaturesWayBrands Vitamin D3, I try to start my day by making good choices for my health. #Ad It’s also why I partner with brands who share my desire to do more for people and the earth. Nature’s Way has been sourcing ingredients from all over the world for 50 years and just launched new sustainable packaging. Check out their new bottles made with 97% post-consumer recycled material and visit 50.naturesway.com to learn more about what else they have in store for their birthday! #MyWayToWell
There is so much magic in these mountains. They represent adventure in the grandest form and in a language all their own. The idea of standing at the base of the world's tallest peak with @eddiebauer, a brand that has been outfitting record-setting climbers since the beginning - from the first American ascent in 1963 (Jim Whittaker) to our guide @melissaarnot, the first American Woman to ascend and descend Everest without oxygen, is truly beyond my wildest imagination. Traversing this terrain has its challenges. Breathing at altitude, for instance, is not easy. One of the greatest gifts/lessons that Melissa simultaneously bestowed on us during this trek was the fine art of pressure breathing. It makes all the difference as you climb higher. It’s essentially a big inhale and a sharp, forceful exhale, like you’re blowing out a candle across the room, to open up your lungs, allowing you to use more oxygen, etc... Besides hydration and staying nourished, breathing is THE vital key in the fight against altitude sickness. It’s also a major takeaway that I will be employing back to the real world whether I’m in the midst of a tough workout or a weird day. Mind blown. So as we weaved around the Himalayas from 14,400ft-16,200ft-17,600ft: this particular technique was essential in propelling us forward. Needless to say, this part of the world holds a very special place in @melissaarnot’s heart so her willingness to share it, as well as her time, knowledge and endless trove of stories were so appreciated by all of us lucky enough to walk alongside her this past week. Her belief in our abilities to keep moving and ultimately make it to the base of the Mighty, Mighty Mt. Everest was so powerful. Spoiler alert: we made it!!! It’s impossible to be lucky enough to arrive at the foot of these mammoth peaks and not be attuned to the palpable energy of all of those who came before and lost their lives in these mountains. The wave of emotion: respect, reverence, appreciation....that washed over us as we took in the prayer flags and yellow domed tents of basecamp AND sat on the rocks regarding the chortens that dot the hillside of the Tukla Pass the day before, profoundly
One of the reasons I’m passionate about working with @eddiebauer is due to the authenticity of their programs - they've been supporting @thejuniperfund since its inception, understanding that we must support the mountain communities that support us. Founded by two @eddiebauer guides (Melissa Arnot & David Morton), the Juniper Fund provides financial support, vocational training and small business grants to the families of local workers who are killed working in the Himalayas. This week we’ve gotten a small glimpse into the impact on the lives of the families that TJF supports with the help of Eddie Bauer and other partners. • This week over 400 people summited Everest and around HALF of them were local workers. @thejuniperfund supports families of those workers when things go wrong- to contribute or learn more see link in bio. #whyihike #ebpartner
Not to take away from our journey but I felt compelled to explain the difference between our trekking trip to Everest Base Camp vs the experienced and professional mountaineers and alpinists who are CLIMBING Everest. If all goes well, we will have completed what is only 1/6 of the entire trip for someone who actually climbs (8 weeks total). We stand in awe of the fortitude and training and superhuman strength it takes to attempt a feat like Everest and are deeply honored just to be here and feel the Khumbu vibes. #whyihike #everestviewtrek
I went into this Everest viewing trek relatively blind. Not unprepared, mind you...but I wanted to venture forward into the unknown with an open mind and heart and as free of expectations as possible. I also knew we were in extraordinary hands with our friend/ @eddiebauer alpine guide and Everest extraordinaire @melissaarnot (she’s summited 6 times and guided the Basecamp trek between 35-40 times so this isn’t her first rodeo). Once we arrived in Kathmandu and had our de-brief about what the next 10 days of our life we’re going to look like, it became abundantly clear that this experience was going to be one of physical discomfort, personal challenge AND fundamental spiritual growth. Sign me up. We also decided as a group to refer to our trip as a Everest viewing trek incase our plans deviated from the original goal of making it to base camp, placing greater importance on the journey and not the destination. In addition to living out this bucket list dream, being gently placed in this middle of this extraordinary country of Nepal and bearing witness to the customs and culture of the Sherpa people has been spellbinding. So much to take in, in every way. 3 days in, I’m writing this from 11,500 feet, tucked away in the terraced village of Namche (also known as the Sherpa center of the Khumbu Valley) as transparent clouds of mist seem to obscure our view of the hustle and bustle below and then just as quickly, glide away to reveal the towering peaks of Kongde Ri and Kwande La. We’ve been acclimatizing here for the past 2 days, taking on some day treks to help prepare our bodies and breath for the travels ahead. Not sure what awaits us on the road today but this group is in it all together (with all the snacks and milk tea one could ever want)! Stay tuned.... #whyihike #ebpartner
