The Making Of The 1950′s Retro Photo Shoot!

A few weeks back I did a photo shoot at my house.  Catch the entire process of the transformation this Sunday morning between 7 and 7:30am during the WZZM13 Weekend Morning News with Jennifer Pascua and Aaron Ofseyer.  Rebecca Gohl, here in Grand Rapids lives the life of a 1950's housewife 24/7.  Her photographer, Kelli Wiseman from Clever Creations Photography, knows how to beautifully shoot "Pin Up Photos" that bear a striking resemblance to the gorgeous photos of the era.    The beautiful Vintage Dress I wear is courtesy of Perri at Flashback located at 450 Leonard NW.

Since the photo shoot so many people have asked me if I brought in any props?  No, I didn not.  Do I really have that stove and it really works?  Do I actually have a toaster that is built into the wall?  Did I REALLY make those cupcakes from scratch.  The answer to all the questions is yes.  I really do live in a house that looks like that.  The next question is always, "Where did you find it?  How did you find it?  I believe George & Virginia waanted me to have their house.  It waited for me:)  I live in a great little neighborhood in the SE area of Grand Rapids.  George and Virginia lived in my beautiful house for close to 54 years.  They never had any children, just like me.  She was an artist and he an engineer.

5 Ways To Help Your Kids Transition Back To School After A Long Grand Rapids Summer Break

I always enjoy watching Dr. Matthew Clark on Take Five & Company.  He's a local psychologist with The Clark Institute right here in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  His practice is primarily with young people and families.  I invited him on today's show to talk about the stresses for the kids going back to school.  Routines change, sleeping times will change, video computer time will change once they have to start doing homework and hitting the books.  So how can you make the transition easy for you and the kids?

Betty Ford Funeral In Grand Rapids Is A Real Celebration Of Her Life!

Isn't it just like Betty Ford to choose a "spiritual" to start off her funeral here in Grand Rapids.  Back in the day before it was politically incorrect to use the term "negro" it was referred to as a "Negro spiritual".  Spirituals are raw, honest, bluesy, transparent, beautiful and real.  Just like Betty Ford!  It's no wonder she chose Done Made My Vow!
