Yesterday I was BLESSED to be the recipient of a BABY SPRINKLE! What is a “sprinkle” you ask? Well, it’s a celebration to help Mom welcome baby #2 or #3 and so on. Basically you’re not showering the Mother with gifts, but rather sprinkling her with a few items!!! So, since I am having my second child, I already have many baby items and wasn’t anticipating any “hoopla” to accompany the impending arrival of baby #2…however my dear friend Constance aka “The Crafty Reporter,” insisted that we needed to celebrate!
Well, I was just so flattered and she really went all out to make this intimate gathering of my Miami “family” really special — I am SO THANKFUL! She crafted lots of handmade cuteness with the dessert table and decor….I am SO IN LOVE with her crocheted crowns for my “Little Prince.” If you want to see some of her other yarn by design creations you can visit her website for Huggabeans. She is so good at making the most adorable baby hats, blankets, etc…
Every touch, from the printed menu’s, goodie bags, color scheme, fancy treats and all the extra attention to detail, really show and the sprinkle was nothing short of FABULOUS! Take a look at these photos of the “spread!”
And — of course I can’t forget the lovely women who attended the sprinkle…THANK YOU for coming and sprinkling me and baby #2 with LOVE!!
FYI — The venue for my Sprinkle was City Hall the Restaurant in downtown Miami…and the food was extra YUMMY!
Now it’s countdown time til my “Little Prince” arrives!
For the past 7 years, one of my best buds from college has been the mind behind the “Kick It” kickball tournament…and the event has grown to include hundreds of people, teams lined up giving “Kick It” a whole new meaning! LOL!! Anyway, it’s all in fun and Bay Tiger Video did a great job with this year’s highlight video, so I just had to share…
Fruitvale Station was a big winner at this year’s Sundance Festival and the movie is based on the real life story of Oscar Grant — whose life tragically ended at the hands of a BART police officer. His shooting death made headlines in the Bay Area and beyond…and now it’s headed for the big screen. The film’s first theatrical trailer has just been released and I personally can’t wait to see it… Fruitvale Station is also produced by the multi-talented Forest Whitaker. Uhm, did I mention my Raiderette sister Lucena also plays the role of “Rose” in the film. Press play to watch the trailer below…

I spent my St. Patty’s Day as a judge for the Ms. Racing Queen pageant at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale! Not only was it exciting to help select the 5 ladies who will compete as finalists with 5 additional finalists from the Santa Anita Race Track in So Cal, but I was able to educate myself a bit in the sport of horse racing as well!! This was the second week I have been able to participate as a judge…each week they have been narrowing it down, culminating in the FINALS next Sunday, where they will crown the queen — uh, did I mention she will take home a cool $100k!?!? Not a bad gig, eh??? Good luck to all the ladies…see some of my pics from today’s event!!
