The "kids" just emailed a few pictures to Mark and me, so I thought I would share them with you!

It's not the best photo in the world, but it's the first one sent to me where you can see my shoes. : )
Plus, I had so much fun borrowing another woman's fascinator just to see how it looked and to do something British! What do you think?!
Thank you again for all of your help in choosing what I would wear to Eric and Alice's wedding! You were spot on!!
Counting our Blessings,

So close to Eric's wedding and I'm still not 100% certain which dress I will wear. I'm leaning more toward the light blush pink dress on the left. It looks more champagne in the photo, but it really is a very, very light pink. I think I will pack and take both and see how I feel the morning of the big day.
And now on to shoes. I have four pairs that I love and, all except for the really high pair, find them to be fairly comfortable.
I've numbered them below for you to see. Please share your thoughts with me! And again, thank you very much for weighing in. All of you have such great ideas and... Continue Reading

Thank you so very much for taking your time to share your opinions with me on which dress I should wear to Eric and Alice's wedding. And with your kind help, I have narrowed it down to the following two.
Number one is really a very light blush pink, but appears more of a champagne color in the photo.
Remember, I will definitely wear different shoes. I just wanted to go very neutral for the pictures to give me a little more height and have your eyes go right to the dress. : )
Let me know what you think of these two and next week, I'l... Continue Reading

I NEVER thought it would be so difficult to find a dress for my first wedding as mother-of-the-groom! I have tried on more than 40 dresses!
Most were either too low in the front or too low in the back. Someseemed too matronly and a few others were practically see-through. It's not easy finding a beautiful dress that's modest!
It's an early afternoon wedding next month in London. Therefore, my dress should be sophisticated yet feminine, comfortable enough for all day and a dress that reflects me. Plus the mother of the bride, Lisa, is wearing a knee-length dress, so I want to do the same, whi... Continue Reading

With our oldest son, Eric, getting married next month, I am reminded of past weddings in our family. When I was only 4 and 5 years old, my two oldest sisters got married about a year apart. I was the flower girl in both of their weddings. I can still remember dropping red rose petals as I walked down the aisle covered in a white cloth. It looked so pretty!
I was also a bridesmaid for two of my other siblings and a few friends before my own wedding to Mark. The best part about being a bridesmaid is getting to wear a pretty dress and being included in the wedding party. Sometimes the hardest ... Continue Reading

Every St. Patrick’s Day, it is a kind of ‘family reunion’ at QVC, because over the past 25 years, I have come to know and love the Irish guests that have visited QVC year after year, such as Matt Doolan, Stephen Walsh, Sinead Flood, John Cullen, Barbara Campbell, Eve Harbourne, Phillip O’Keefe, etc.……. I even had the privilege to travel to Ireland with a video crew from QVC three times in my career, and each time was so lovely, but it was work after all.
So a few years ago, Mark and I decided to travel to Ireland for pleasure, along with a couple of... Continue Reading

Meet Alice. Alice is the latest member to join the Roe family. She and our son, Eric will be married next month in London where they met in church. And what a coincidence that Mark and I also met in church?!
Alice and Eric were engaged in October and will be married in April and Mark and I were engaged in the month of October and were married in April. Mark and I have been married for over three decades, so I will take that as a good sign for our Eric and his beautiful bride-to-be!
Alice and Eric met in London and they decided to live in the states together. So, Eric moved back to West... Continue Reading
