A Peek Inside Mayim Bialik’s Newly Organized Home

By at 1:59 pm

I ended up traveling a lot this summer for my work with Texas Instruments and I also did a handful of speaking engagements as well. In between, I spent a lot of great time with my boys camping and going to the beach and having play dates and the like.

But what I also did on my summer vacation was something I have been told to do for years but resisted and finally gave in to… I hired a personal organizer. I hate getting help with things (as you all know, I clean my own toilets and am actually fine with that), and I was very nervous about this being Hollywood, where big personalities and diva desires are often more common with people like stylists and personal organizers than celebrities!

My publicist Heather knows how quirky and not Hollywood I am, and she told me she heard about an organizer with a mellow personality who might be able to help me. I called said woman with a million caveats in my head, and I fumbled my way through our first conversation by telling her I don’t want my house to look like an IKEA or Pottery Barn Catalog (no insult to those stores, it’s just not my style). I also told her that I am not a crazy Hollywood person and that I want my house to still be funky and eclectic and I also may have told her I was terrified of hiring her because of all of the anxieties mentioned above.

Making Popsicles with Mayim Bialik

Best way to beat the summer heat? Those Tupperware (or other similar) popsicle makers. Seriously.

We fill ours with orange juice, limeade, and frozen berries. I also made some with pineapple chunks and those were a big hit with my boys.

As a kid, I remember long summer afternoons on the “stoop” (did you not know I grew up in the Bronx in the 1940s?) with a popsicle. This brings back those memories and makes new ones!
