Happy Friday Richmond friends, hope you had a great week. Mine was busy, busy, busy. So excited to be bringing you so many great new sponsors and giveaways. It is funny, almost 10 years into this "job" of mine and I still get so excited to be able to make things happen for all of you! I  When I decided to give this a whirl, never having done anything like this before, I did not expect to love it all so much, or to love it for this length of time. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to continuing to bring you all of the best RVA family fun! 

 I have been struggling with sleep since the time change, my dogs have woken us up every morning at 3 am!! This momma is tired, but, Marky & I ran away to Dave & Busters on Tuesday after voting and we had a blast! Watch for our Santa Fun Giveaway there coming up! My hubs and I are attending an Autism Gala Saturday night, we are getting dressed up and having a real date! Hope I can stay awake, at least I know my hair will be looking good, Chris at Meraki will be "getting me ready!" Look at this pic from 7 years ago after he used me as a model for a blow dry! So fun :)
