What does everyone want to wear to Thanksgiving dinner…. Sweatpants or perhaps anything with an extremely elastic waistband! But since so many of us would never, I decided to put together a fashion guide for Turkey Day! Thanksgiving is the kickoff for holiday fashion, but it’s also really the last hoorah, for all of our fall favorites. This is the time to go big on the cozy sweaters, warm fall tones, and the latest trends you saw this season – plaids, fringe, and boyfriend style (just to name a few). Here are some of my rules for picking out your Thanksgiving outfit:1. ... Continue Reading

Bree’s beach bum status was confirmed back in June when we hit the Jersey Shore for a family vacation. It was a relief knowing that not only could she handle a day spent wearing a bathing suit at the beach covered in sunscreen, but she actually LOVED IT. I say it was a relief because me and Steve love the beach, especially Stone Harbor. It’s our happy place!
Since, we got the okay from our successful shore trip, we decided to plan our first big family vacation for the three of us in Florida. The trip brought a lot of firsts…
Bree’s first airplane ride:
Her first... Continue Reading

This week we had our friend Meg over for dinner. Not only did we have a delicious meal and a great time, but we also came up with a really fun idea for you! Because you're always inviting me into your home no matter what time of day I happen to be on-air, we thought it was time we finally returned the favor and invited you over to our house!!
Sunday Funday is one of our favorite traditions and this week you're invited! We put together a quick home tour so you can get an idea of where and how we like to spend our Sunday's and pretty much every day together.
You'll notice most of the dec... Continue Reading

Last week we had a photo shoot for my new head shot! It was such a blast so I wanted to show you some behind the scenes photos.
Here's a little sneak peek at what it's like to be part of a photo shoot at the Q. Prepare for lots of laughter, lots of dancing, and lots of glamming!!
It all starts in the salon! Do you think we have enough to get me "camera ready?!"
This is Robert my make up artist! He is amazing and always makes me feel so pampered and beautiful.
Meg had to grab an "after" photo to show off Robert's talents! Can you believe the transformation?? I wish eve... Continue Reading

The last two months have been filled with many "firsts." Our first meal as a family, Bree's first bath, my first Mother's Day, and now that June has rolled around it's time to celebrate Steve's first Father's Day. I know I'm constantly posting pictures of these two on my Facebook page, but there are SO many more where that came from!
I'm sharing some of my favorite Daddy and Bree photos to celebrate a special "first" for all of us, especially Steve!
Happy Father's Day to a... Continue Reading

Knowing that there was a host team meeting yesterday (the only time most of us are able to get together with our crazy schedules), Steve and I decided to bring Bree to QVC to surprise everyone! Here are some pictures from her big debut.
Before the meeting let out, we fed Bree in the host lounge. Wanted to make sure she was fueled up and ready to meet everyone!
Then the meeting let out and all of the hosts immediately flocked to her...
I love this picture of Jane and Jennifer meeting Bree for the first time!
I'm going to go o... Continue Reading

I have been looking for the time to sit down and post some Bree photos into a blog for you, and I’m finally getting to it now. We are loving every second with our little girl and apparently she is loving every second of sleep, lol! Here are some of my favorite pics…
Here is a picture of Bree after a bath, because someone has around here has to get washed, lol!
We drove up to Maryland so that Bree could meet her cousins Drew, Reese, and Abby for the first time. Although she screamed throughout the photo shoot, I still love this pic... Continue Reading

It feels like I've been doing some extra tidying around the house lately considering there won't be much time for that once Bree arrives. FYI-- My due date is Sunday (April 20th) but if you've seen me lately it feels like she could come at any point, lol! As I was cleaning up I noticed that the Easter decor around the house all matched a specific theme -- Peter Cottontail's Bunny Trail!
I'll start with my favorite bunny in the house... This USED TO BE filled to the top but Steve and I put our favorite Easter treat inside (Cadbury Mini Eggs) and this is what it left lol!
This is... Continue Reading

Steve and I have been enjoying our last evenings together as just the two of us. We’ve been together 11 years and married for six—so, while we’re excited, we also know things are going to change. One piece of advice we’ve taken to heart is to go to the movies! Here's a peek at some photos that I know you will love. I have the chills looking at them myself! Bree is only 20 days, 480 hours, and 28800 minutes away... but hey, who's counting?!
What have you been doing to prepare for the baby’s arrival?
A lot of things, but the main focus is trying to be healthy... Continue Reading
