Parenting. As anyone with kids knows, it’s a challenge for those who work a “normal” 9-to-5-type schedule. When it comes to my schedule there is no such thing as a typical day. My schedule is ever changing and the hours are often very odd, and then you through in the TONS of tournaments, practices, and games that my sons Nick, 15, and Josh, 13, are involved with. For example – this summer Josh is playing on FOUR baseball teams, while Nick is on THREE basketball teams, and sometimes it feels like we have no idea how we will juggle all of it.
Somehow, some way my wife ... Continue Reading

Vacation!! After a long, long (OK, reeeeally long) winter, the word vacation is beautiful music to our ears. Are you looking forward to it?!! While many families look forward to the tradition of returning to a lake or a beach each year, when it comes to vacation habits of our family…variety is the spice of life. From the natural beauty of Vermont, to the lakes of Minnesota, to sipping wine in the hills of Tuscany, exploring new destinations has become our own tradition.
Amy and I in Jamaica.
Exploring Italy last September was a once in a lifetime journey for my wi... Continue Reading

Whenever I meet people who watch QVC, they’ll often ask “What’s it really like to work here look there?” They’ll ask questions like “It looks like you guys are having a blast. Is it really that much fun?” After recalling fond memories like Broadcasting from the Oktoberfest in Munich Germany, climbing the Great Wall of China, and doing a promo with one and only Joan Rivers, my immediate response is… “Yes, it really is that much fun!!”
And just when you think it can’t get any better, who decides to pay a visit to our QVC... Continue Reading

As many of you may already know, it's "Let's Get Physical" month on Anything Goes! Staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is something I find very important and I'm not alone on that! In fact, one of my co-workers here at QVC underwent an amazing journey to achieve self-wellness and physical fitness. Below is Heather's story that I think you will find motivating and inspiring -- I know I did!
They say, “when you feel like quitting, remember why you started.”
And sometimes just finding your ‘start’ button can be the hardest part. First, let me st... Continue Reading

I have no delusions of grandeur when it comes to winning the prize of the next Top Chef (I’m actually content that I didn’t burn the house down the last time I grilled steaks on the deck). And while my wife Amy has become a master at whipping up delectable dishes for our family, every once in a while… I’m unleashed into the kitchen. With pans clanging and knives flailing, look out… it’s time for Dad… to make omelets!
The importance of a great breakfast cannot be overstated. With a combination of healthy carbs and protein, it’s a great w... Continue Reading

It’s a snowy January day, and my son Josh and his ‘Posse’ are doing their best to wreak havoc, and create mayhem in the Domeier house-- And we love it. They also have appetites that never seem to stop!! Because it’s always ‘Snack time’ for these guys, I decided to make them a sweet, delicious Smoothie. I’m doing it with the All new Ninja Ultima Blender, but rather than dumping in six scoops of ice cream and chocolate syrup, I decided to make a tasty and ( Shhhhh, please don’t tell them!!), Nutritious smo...

Let’s face it, if you’re nominating someone to go and Win the Pillsbury Bake-off, I’m probably not your guy. But, hey, I’d be more than willing to be one of the Judges! Who doesn’t love cookies?
Many Christmas’s ago, I came up with the crazy idea of baking Christmas cookies (with our two young sons, Nick and Josh) for our QVC Holiday celebration. Their mom supervised, and tried to steer clear of all the flour, flying through the air.
So for our Anything Gifts annual cookie exchange (it’s our first!!), I decided to once agai... Continue Reading

Ciao! (FYI..in case you start to speak Italian with me, that’s about as far as I go J ). There are so many reasons to have the ‘attitude of gratitude’ when it comes to having this crazy job at QVC. From ‘Live TV’, to the laughs, to meeting QVC Customers over the years, it’s been a blast. But having the opportunity to travel the world is something for which I’ll be forever grateful. From Broadcasting in Germany, to seeing the Swiss Alps, to climbing the Great Wall of China, it’s been quite a ride!
Some months ago, one of the Execs from QVC ... Continue Reading
