I still cherish the memory of every Easter egg hunt with my fun loving grandfather.

Bruce On Air with Ryan Seacrest

Screen Shot 2015 03 17 at 11.06.11 AM 400x400 Bruce On Air with Ryan Seacrest You might have recently read on HuffingtonPost how Ryan Seacrest rescued me while I was skiing in Deer Valley. If not, read it here. OR take a listen to Ryan and me talking about it on his radio show today. It’s a painfully funny story. You gotta love that guy… not just because he saved me, but because he says I’m prettier than he is. Ha! Thanks Ryan for the memory.

1 MUST do for Valentine’s Day

Screen Shot 2015 02 11 at 10.48.29 AM 400x400 1 MUST do for Valentines DayWhen I was a kid growing up in South Carolina, I always made Valentines… for everyone in my class. It made me happy. This year I made Valentines and sent them to a few of my eldest sweethearts. I felt great joy making them and it makes me happy to know friends will soon open them and smile. Maybe you’ll make a few too?
I’ve got some easy ideas on how to make the loves of your life happy this Valentine’s Day. You can watch some ideas I shared on The Better Show HERE. Or watch my Aunt Jean try to outdo me HERE.
And if nothing else this Valentine’s Day, remember this
Life 101 advice:
Greet those you encounter with a smile. Besides being super affordable, it’s a last minute Valentine gift that keeps on giving.

Life 101 – Time for Fun

Screen Shot 2015 02 02 at 3.22.36 PM 400x400 Life 101   Time for FunYou’ve heard the saying, “Time heals all wounds.” This time last year I was recovering from back surgery and couldn’t take my yearly ski trip with Scott and our pal Barbara Corcoran to #Sundance. As I recovered in bed, I shook off the feeling that I’d never ski again by making my mantra a quote from Buddha: “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so let us all be thankful.” See the joy in our faces at the FUN we had this year? So, yes, time does heal wounds. But during our adventure, I made note of a blind skier, a legless skier, an armless skier, and I realized that it’s not just time that heals wounds, it’s also determination. As you face the mountains in your life, I give you this Life 101 mantra: “I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.”

Better Show: Perfect Stockings

Screen Shot 2014 12 18 at 10.00.03 AM 400x400 Better Show: Perfect StockingsCatch me on The Better Show with the fabulous Brooke Hogan Friday, December 19, showing how to give the perfect stocking. Stockings give you the chance to think of the individual and what they like and make it special for them. I believe all stockings should have a something sweet, something neat, something fun, and something sentimental. Inside Brooke’s stocking is a retro Hulk Hogan finger puppet. I think she loved it. Some ideas for you. Did your teen just get a car? How about a lot of quarters for the car wash? Does your six-year-old love to draw? How about art supplies? Does your aunt love to write letters? How about some gorgeous stationary and pens? These let the person know that you know them. And don’t forget your pets! There’s another thing that stockings are great for… random acts of kindness. This year I made little burlap stockings to give out to neighbors, elderly folks I meet, and my favorite cashier at the grocery store. Watch the Better show and find out how to make them.
