Sleeping Beauty Birthday Party

My daughter recently turned four and are you shocked it wasn’t a Frozen birthday party? She actually is in love with Aurora. She names her baby dolls Aurora.. she wants to dress like Aurora and she is a huge fan of the flying fairy godmothers. Adora also adores pink so it made for a fitting theme to celebrate her big 4.  Holidays have always been huge in my family and birthdays are right at the top. Another year of being here.. another year to look forward to. Birthdays… although some dread them.. think about it.. it’s really a beautiful thing. We should be thankful every time we get one ;)   As for this year’s party.. it was a true team effort. From painting the frames and making the centerpieces to deciding on desserts (glitter popcorn was a must!) Adora had a hand in almost everything. Here’s how we celebrated 4… Once upon a dream.. oh and they lived happily ever after.. I promise.

Oh what wonder!

One of my favorite TV shows growing up was The Wonder Years. I’m so excited to see that some of the memorabilia from the series will be featured in the Smithsonian. It arrives today and with good company. Fred Savage and cast will be there for the event! And that NY Jets jacket– of course it’s part of the display. My closest tie to the show– my sister who for all her teenage life was called Winne Cooper!

Home for the holidays

We saluted the US military this year with the Reston Town Center Holiday Parade! It was a grand celebration and Doug and I were so happy to be a part of it. The tree lighting was magical as always!

Even after his death.. Zach Lederer continues to make a difference

One of the finest young men I’ve ever met. It was so sad to lose him. Even though he’s gone what he started with one ‘strongman pose’ continues to make a difference. I’m so glad his family allowed me to share the story.

Living the Dream

Tonight at 5pm on NBC4.

The Nationals have clinched the NL East title and to show solidarity with the team… our guys at #NBC4 are growing out their playoff beards. What? You expect me to sit back, relax and let them have all the fun. No way! Go #NATS!

Chuck this weekend let it go:

Handly and Kammerer happy to grow:

Etsy bans Redskins name but you can still get…

In the Etsy blog the marketplace that has more than 22 million members banned the use of the Redskins name and logo for items to be sold. Team colors are still ok.I did  a search and still was able to find quite a few things for sale with the name. Etsy says they’re emailing users to tell them to take down the items.

The company wrote: “In no uncertain terms, Native American groups have consistently advocated and litigated that the term “redskin(s)” is disparaging and damaging to Native Americans. Therefore, it will no longer be permitted in our marketplace.”

A marketplace that sold more than a billion dollars in just the last year. Many of those purchases made the way I like to do it— through mobile.

As you can imagine this story is getting quite the reaction online. One of my twitter followers asks:
@OhMyGOFF Did they also ban “Indians”, “Chiefs”, “Blackhawks”, “Braves” & “The Chop”? (Not that you can ‘chop’ in a piece of cheap jewelry) — Edward Shipley (@ems74) September 10, 2014

Edward.. doesn’t it appear they have. No ban on “Indians” products or perhaps other things that may offend or raise a brow. Stuff from like the KKK. You can even get a 10 pack of Ted Bundy Stickers and a knitted childbirth doll you will thank me later for not posting.

 

On Instagram @jmshultzie points out… It’s a business decision either way.
That is true and Etsy has every right to make that call. Good or bad one? Only buyers and sellers can tell.

A fighter’s spirit

Talk about a strong woman! Lauri Williamson lost her husband Will a month after they were married last summer. Prostate cancer took his life. She’s now hoping she can do something to keep his fighting spirit alive.

I’ll share her story tonight on News4 at 4pm. Be inspired.
