A storybook storyboard…

The dream is over. We survived the sun blistering weekend down south at the Magical Kingdom.

We played the part…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

at times the excitement was too much

but we met some friendly mice

Some were not impressed by Cindy’s castle

Waited 40 minutes for the happiest cruise that ever sailed.

Adora sees It’s a Small World.. sort of

Afterwards, we continued our doll hunt for Mulan

No luck.. so we settled for some silly ears.

And flew back to DC leaving the party at the happiest place.. behind.

Staycation: Our visit to West Virginia

In our suite we arrived to fresh baked desserts, free bottled water and coffee.

As you may have seen from my previous post, Little Goff and I went on a little staycation in West Virginia. I highly recommend doing so to anyone who’s just itching to get out of town but really doesn’t have the time to take a week or even a weekend off for travel. It took us about an hour to get to the Hillbrook Inn Bed & Breakfast nestled in the rolling hills of Charles Town. Upon arrival at the European style country home estate we were hooked. Within seconds you realize this is a quiet place that is loud with history.. some of the English Tudor inn was constructed starting in the 1700’s. In fact George Washington use to own this land.

EXTRA: Travel for Busy Moms & Their Brood

What we found so refreshing is that among the antiques, aging books, dark wood and even an old water closet was a touch of today. We were impressed to find out that all the 6 unique rooms (we stayed in The Bamford) and 4 cottage suites had an iPad 2 in them. The Wi-Fi connection was very strong too— hence my real-time (and real funny) post on the wedding we witnessed from our patio. As for the food? The filet mignon was so tender– they only give you a butter knife to cut it. The dessert was creative. Ever had chocolate pate’? With the overnight stay you get free breakfast on the porch. I commented during breakfast that I could taste the difference in the tomatoes. They were definitely garden fresh– come to learn their produce comes from a local farm. The whole experience was more than up to our taste- it was great enough that we actually bought a gift certificate for our parents who so deserve a nice getaway!

Anything for breakfast

Ask anyone you know who works the early morning shift and most likely they will tell you they can eat anything for breakfast– sushi.. pizza.. seaweed?!? Yep that’s what I got with my coffee today.

October is breast cancer awareness month and one of the biggest events happening is this Thursday: The Gift of Life Breakfast.

It’s the annual signature event of the Capital Breast Care Center.

She supported us at our Newsbabes event in May and continues to push the fight in funding for this disease. Other rocks behind the cause… British Ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald and his lovely wife who opened their Washington home for a reception to kick-off excitement for the breakfast. At the party, Mayor Adrian Fenty read a proclamation declaring October as ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month’ in DC. Speaking at the Gift of Life Breakfast this Thursday… some of Washington’s most prominent women including Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton and Councilwoman Mary Cheh. Tune in for coverage of the kick-off event on the WUSA9 Morning Show  Thursday morning.
