I didn’t want to call this blog stay-cation again so I am going with “Day Trippin’ because that is what we did for the last 2 weeks.
We started our vacation joining our good friend Holly celebrate her sons wedding. Congratulations to John, Jeannie and family. It was a beautiful ceremony.
Next it was time for our annual crab pickin’ with Leah, Lena, Barb & Aneesah. Served with fried chicken, corn on the cob & shrimp salad!! Yum!! Avery photo bombed the picture but I think she was really more interested in stealing the crabs.
Picking crabs... Continue Reading

I am often asked what my skin care regimen is. I consider it a great compliment, especially if I am not wearing makeup. I have to thank my mom, grandmother, great grandmother… and on and on and on. Genetics has a lot to do with it, but I do try to take good care of my skin. And working at QVC, with the incredible un-ending assortment of skin care and cosmetic brands, I really get the chance to try everything.
In general, my routine is simple. Cleanse, treat, & moisturize. I also pay close attention to what my skin needs. Seasons, te... Continue Reading

What happens in Vegas…
When Chelsea turned 21 last year she asked if we could take a family trip to Las Vegas. I love Vegas, so I said let’s GO!! What can I say about Vegas that hasn’t already been said. It is crazy, wild, live and always unpredictable. I guess that is why I love it. Of course the world class hotels, entertainment and dining are worth mentioning. We stayed at the Aria Hotel. It was stunning and definitely worth seeing. Every hotel has a different vibe. We walked to as many as our legs could handl... Continue Reading

For the last 4 years we have traveled to the Atlantis in the Bahamas for our big family summer vacation.
We would spend most days at the pool and beach. We played pinochle, read books, relaxed and let the warm tropical breeze blow the stress of life away. It is nice not to have to clean, cook or do anything domestic for a week. Ahhh......
Pictured below: Lauren, Me, Chelsea, Kennady, Gramps, Ricky, Avery & Grammy. James & Cathy are taking the pictures.
When it was time to plan vacation this year we thought about going back to At... Continue Reading

Our family loves to pick crabs during the summer. As soon as the summer season begins we start talking about when we are going to host the event. I love the sweet tender flavor of crab meat. I was at the grocery store, again, looking for something different to cook for dinner, and saw the canned lump crab meat in the refrigerated section and came up with this recipe.

6 large Portabella mushrooms 1 can lump crab 1/2 cup bread crumbs 1/4 cup mayo 1 tbs. Old Bay seasoning 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire 1/4 cup white wine Olive oil ... Continue Reading
