Inclement weather meant I spent Saturday night in, but a few things made it a fabulous evening: fresh-baked snickerdoodles (thanks Caroline!), the bottle of wine we polished off, and catching Amy Poehler’s spoof of my Project Runway love, Christian Siriano. Not to mention the always awesome Bill Hader as the always awesome Tim Gunn and Amy Adams doing a fierce Heidi Klum. Auf ... Read More
