Busy Philipps (@busyphilipps) — It's all happening.
I was able to be a part of something really special today. I'm always beyond proud to be involved with and represent @baby2baby but today I was honestly overwhelmed. Baby2Baby, Kawhi Leonard and the @laclippers donated ONE MILLION NEW BACKPACKS to kids in Los Angeles!!!❤️❤️❤️ We had an amazing time at 107th Street Elementary School handing out backpacks and talking with students and educators. New school supplies and a new backpack is something that maybe some take for granted but it truly can change the way a child feels about walking into class in the morning. Every kid deserves to feel valued and that their community is there to step up if they need a hand. Honestly, every person deserves to know that. Thank you to @kellysawyer@norahweinstein@rivfifi and the entire Baby2Baby team, and thank you to Kawhi Leonard, Gillian Zucker and the entire @laclippers team for together making this all possible. You know I'm not really a sports fan but I am a fan of good people who want to put good in the world and there were a TON of them with me today. ❤️
HERE WE GO! Teacher #1 in our #10featuredteachers Is ZANOVIA CLARK @zslc13 !!! Let's get some much needed supplies for the kids she teaches and let's help Zanovia #clearthelist ! Her Amazon Wishlist link is in my bio and there is a swipe up in my stories! I am so proud to be a #michaelspartner because Zanovia is ALSO going to get a 300 dollar gift card to @michaelsstores (teachers always get 15% off at Michael's👍🏼)!!!❤️ Here is what Zanovia emailed: "Busy, I am a 5th year educator working in Seattle, WA. I teach second grade in a Dual Language school where my students are learning in both English and Spanish. I have spent the last 5 years working in high poverty, high need schools. I choose teaching as my career because I grew up with a single mom who struggled to make ends meet. I have an older sister who was heavily involved in drugs throughout my childhood. That being said, many of my teachers served as my caretakers and family. They taught me not only to read and write but to believe in myself and love who I am. As a way to thank them, I decided to become an educator and do the same for students. I want every student in my classroom to feel loved and cared for no matter what is going on at home. I recently got married to my wife in June and we just rescued a sweet pup from a Texas shelter! I enjoy Beyonce, laughing, street tacos, and a good cold case show!" Let's show Zanovia some love and #clearthelist for her! 📓📚🎒✏️
I voted for the first picture and Michelle voted for the second, which makes me laugh and should tell you everything you need to know about why I love her so. And WHILE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT VOTING: if YOU are voting for the Emmys and you don't vote for Michelle for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for her insanely TRANSCENDENT performance as Gwen Verdon in Fosse/Verdon, then you and I can't be friends.❤️GIVE MY BFF THE EMMY SHE DESERVES❤️
This was last night but I wore the same dress today so just pretend this is TONIGHT cause whatever I only wore it for like a minute yesterday and anyway, why can't you just like a dress and wear it for a couple of days and THEN put it in the hamper? I don't know. OK. Enjoy. Live your life. Wear the dress you want to wear. I would never ever judge you. Because I love you. Goodnight. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
#tbt in honor of Birdie turning 11 this week, here we are in 2009. I think she was maybe one and half, maybe not even? I know this was a photoshoot for a parenting magazine and I did it to promote Cougartown but I don't remember anything else. Except clearly my boobs were still huge from breastfeeding, I'm in the middle of growing out my bangs, my arm is double jointed (so are Birdie's!) and that was my original Fisher Price tea set that my mom saved for me. Also. Birdie is the cutest baby ever and I wish I could go back in time right now and do it all again(but as me now)because I would. I really really really would.
