Valentine Crafts for Snow-bound Kids

The kids will have a blast in the snow but at one point you gotta come in and warm up and drink some cocoa. Then what? It’s a perfect time for them to make their valentine’s for those they want to share the love with. I’ve included some that are wasy to do. You’ll just need to grab a few things while you’re at the store before the big snow hits! For more ideas on beating cabin fever including how to paint the snow check out my segment on KLG & Hoda.

Hearts to you!

Hope everyone enjoys the love surrounding them this Valentine’s and everyday! I surprised Adora with her Valentine after she woke up. It was so funny. She didn’t know what to do.. but as you can see soon figured it out. EAT CHOCOLATE!

Shocked when she walked out of my room!








Love is all around

Ever since I watched Love Actually I can’t help but look for all the love stories in the airport every time I fly or drop someone off.

It’s something I try to do in my everyday life… when I can take a moment to put down my iPhone or stop whatever I’m doing to sit back, live in the present and really appreciate all the good stuff around me.

I know Valentine’s is a big commercial holiday.. but I still love it. I have great memories of my parents surprising us with yummy treats on Valentine’s morning. It’s something I hope to share with my daughter as she gets older.

Special thanks to Aunt Tricia for sending this adorable outfit!


Hot Undies, Cold Run

Cupid’s arrow reached the hearts of children in need, as over 600 Washingtonians stripped down for Cupid’s Undie Run 2011. This year’s race raised over $50,000 for The Children’s Tumor Foundation – the world’s largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF). In the spirit of Valentine’s day and amidst the chilly weather, runners put on their flashiest, funniest, sexiest and most stylish undies and took off for a 1.1 mile run from Pennsylvania Ave. to the historic U.S. Capitol Building and back. The post-race party was held at the Pour House Restaurant & Bar, where runners enjoyed giveaways, prizes for outstanding costumes and top fundraisers, and some adult beverages and munchies.
