Day at the farm

Breathtaking. It’s the best word to describe the view in Bluemont Virginia. This past weekend I took Adora to Great Country Farms for their annual Easter Egg hunt and Marshmallow Harvest. It  was such a special day. In addition to meeting the Easter Bunny we got to feed the farm animals like the emu and ponies. The cutest sight were the new litter of piglets.. who had me empathizing with momma pig see pic and LOL! Great Country Farms is open throughout the year for families and has a gazillion things for kids to do. I plan to return to check out the vineyard for a little wine tasting when things get warmer. I love discovering new nuggets of fun in the area. It really is like a whole new world just a scenic car ride away. Watch my report on WUSA9’s morning show below…

Oh Snap! Carolina Cup and my raceday awards

I spent  my weekend in historic Camden South Carolina for the annual running of the Carolina Cup. Of course it was COLD due to the winds but anything is better than rain. We made it by about 3 tailgate spots before both Jennifer and me decided our dresses weren’t cute enough to freeze for and  broke out our cardigans. Best dressed? Goes to our pal NBC associate producer Sarah Gregory who rolled up in a full blown fleece. Most Entertaining? Guys in khaki and button ups mud wrestling in College Park. Biggest Win? the last Lilly koozie from the designers appropriately patterned tent.
