Our guest dancers are from the local shelter and ranged in age from 9 to 11, both boys and girls. The kids had a chance to learn to dance salsa, hip hop, tap and contemporary modern...

What a week it's been! With moving and getting Nicole settled, we took some downtime to get crafty. Nikki and I wanted to share a fun and inexpensive way to decorate a college dorm room... Grab your coupon and go to the craft store for a few supplies! You'll need some basics... A glue gun, paint, different size canvases and fun sparkles...
Grey stripes are created by painting a canvas....create your stripes by using scotch tape and add special touches like flowers.
Another fun idea is using your initials. You can print out letters and tape them down to block the paint on your... Continue Reading

One of my favorite hobbies is gardening… My favorite part of gardening is planting all of the gorgeous flowers and fun plants... I have to literally stop myself from over planting. The only thing that is slowing me down is all the aches and pains from carrying the dirt! I obviously have a helper so I have to situate my pots and cubes so that Misty can manage to navigate the back yard..Lol…
I spend hours building my pots, garden boxes and under planting my lime and rose trees... I always try to remember that I need to have a focal point, filler and trailing pl... Continue Reading

The day before we will take the lollipop sticks and take mini Reese peanut butter cups and pieces of choc... Continue Reading

Spring is prom season and yet another senior year memory for Nicole...Prom has changed over the years from gown shopping in January to prom-posals..

Well the day finally arrived with torrential rain threatening to dampen the moment...instead it added to the best night of my life for Nicole..
If you look closely you will see me r... Continue Reading

A shout out to my Family, Friends, and Fans! I am super excited to get to 25,000 Facebook Fans and over 1,000 followers on Twitter that I just had to say THANK YOU!!.. to all of you for being part of my QVC life!
Let me quote something I said back in 2012, "I'm very honored to have been a part of QVC for all of these years. If I take you back to the beginning, I'll say home shopping was very new to our customers, but so was the internet, etc.”
It’s amazing how Facebook has evolved in my life and how it has become an important part of how I connect with my family, fr... Continue Reading
