Which shoes would you choose?

Last Reply by Town Country Lady 1429292205.2 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

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

And the top two dresses are ........................

Dear friends, 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.   #1   #2   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...

Which dress gets your "yes"?!

Last Reply by lu 1429293491.733 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

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

Family Weddings

Last Reply by sunfloweryellow 1427984124.59 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Beauty Banter, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

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

Touring Ireland with Mary Beth McRoe

Last Reply by sunfloweryellow 1427984888.977 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Fashion Talk, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

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

Alice's Bridal Shower

Last Reply by krielkamp 1428271988.273 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Beauty Banter, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

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

Mary Beth McRoe here with two St. Patrick's Day Recipes

Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, The Q We Love 1425571765.42

I am part Swedish and part Norwegian, but every year on March 17th, I am Mrs. Mary Beth McRoe. I hope you like the following recipes and get to try them out for St. Patrick's Day this year! Nothing cures a sweet tooth quite like Irish Potatoes. And another thing I love about them is they can be shaped into ovals or balls in any size you want. Make them bite size and watch how fast they disappear!  This recipe was given to me by Karen Kennedy. The recipe is from Kilkenny County, which is between Tipperary and Wexford in Southern Ireland. That is where Karen Kennedy's family resided. ... Continue Reading

Celebrating 'National Pancake Day' with 'Mary Beth's Menu'

Last Reply by boring beauty blogger 1425529266.137 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

Pancakes have always been a family favorite in the Roe house. It's a simple, but must-have, basic recipe. Experiment with adding chocolate chips or blueberries and of course, making the three-circle, Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes. Pancakes Ingredients: 2 eggs 1-1/2 cups milk 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 cups flour 3/4 teaspoon salt 1-1/2 tablespoons sugar 1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder Beat the eggs; add remaining ingredients and stir well. Heat a dab of vegetable oil on a griddle or frying pan. Pour 1/4 cup of batter on to hot oiled pan. Flip after bubbling. Serve with butter,... Continue Reading
