Happy birthday, my friend. I don't even know where to start – you are such an amazing woman. Smart, kind, funny, tenacious, loyal & beautiful. From the moment we met, you embraced me. You were straightforward, honest, and willing to share. Qualities that many women do not often share with one another. I was able to learn from you and grow with you here at the Q.  Here we are on the set:  In two of the many cars we traveled to QVC events in: (one with Courtney)   At those New York fashion events:    And other Q Events:  (one with Rac...

The Family that PLAYS Together……………………………

Last Reply by alert 1411241610.39 | Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

If you watch me at all on the Q, I am sure you have heard me say “The family that prays together, stays together.”  I believe that very strongly and it is something that my family and I take very seriously.  The other side of that, I realized one day was that “The family that PLAYS together – makes amazing memories and has a boatload of fun along the way!!!!”  I am a big proponent of having the littles “unplug” from video games and TV – and I find that the toys that they love the most were purchased right here at QVC.   ...

Travel Tales -- A Recap From Our QVC Sprouts Trip

Started by Albany Irvin in The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends 1403795860.137

If you aren't familiar with QVC Sprouts, I will give you a little background about what it is. Have you ever seen Shark Tank? You know, the show where aspiring entrepreneurs present ideas, inventions, etc. to a panel of experts in hopes of launching their ideas with some sturdy investors behind them.  QVC Sprouts is a lot like Shark Tank except in this case, YOU are part of this "panel of experts." A team from QVC attends a convention called the INPEX where inventors and entrepenurs display their products and ideas. I am part of this team and absolutely love to witness all of the creativ...

Making the Most of a Rainy Vacation

Started by Albany Irvin in Q Did What?, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs 1398789066.41

I was finally coming to terms with the brutal winter we’ve had, and then it snowed in April! I thought “that’s it I’m booking a vacation!” I don’t know if this is dramatic, but I think Mother Nature might have it out for me. Here’s how our latest family vaca went down: Day 1: Our vacation got off to the right start as we spent our first day soaking up the sun on the beach.   While the Littles took on the waves with their boogie boards, I sat with for hours with a new book and my toes in the sand. {Cue the Go-Go’s “Vacat...

You Can Decorate Your Cake And Eat It Too -- See How The Littles Get Festive For Easter!

Last Reply by ColsGrl 1398573509.123 | Started by Albany Irvin in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Holiday Advice

Instead of putting the Littles on a COMPLETE sugar-high, we skip the traditional Easter Basket candy and decorate a cake together. We've been doing it for years and I love to see how different each cake turns out as the Littles get older and their cake decorating ideas AND skills mature.  Here are some pictures from this year's cake decorating. The theme: A Day at the Bunny Races! :-)  Because bringing the Littles to the grocery store usually results in WAY too many snacks and lots of whining, I usually pick up the ingredients and candy toppings myself and let them work their magic...
