#CelebratingSummer

Thank you to the great towns around DC who welcomed us the last couple weeks. From Hyattsville, Herndon to Arlington and Silver Spring– it was an absolute blast. There is so much history, culture and things to brag about for each place we  stopped in. This fun summer field trip really opened my eyes and mind… motivating me to venture out beyond my comfort zone! Check out our #CelebratingSummer seriesonline. Stay tuned for our next stop…

Lorena Bobbitt 20 Years Later

I caught up with Lorena Bobbitt 20 years after she was aquitted of doing the unthinkable to her husband while he slept.

Bob’s Neverland 1st Birthday Party

“To live will be an awfully big adventure.” ~ Peter Pan

As Baby Bob turned one we thought it’d be fun to encourage everyone to “never grow up” at least for a day. While this milestone is one to celebrate it’s a reminder of just how fast time really does fly by.  At Bob’s Neverland more than dreams were born. There was face paint, balloons, Tinkerbell and even a real baby alligator! A magical day indeed.

We dropped a fairy in each and glued a butterfly on top. We made one for all the girls at the party. The best part was when she stopped and said “Mom I LOVE helping you!”

Finding balance, building self worth

As someone who went to school in Northern Virginia and now lives there I love seeing a magazine by women for women tailored for the area. Posh Seven (formerly IAM Modern) is a magazine that reaches out to women who live, work and do business around the Route 7 corridor. What I love about it.. is that anyone can learn or be inspired by the stories and profiles featured no matter where you live.

POSH SEVEN: Angie Goff, Finding Her Way

I was honored when the editor Hulya Aksu asked to feature me this June. Many of the questions were about staying grounded as a working mom. I tried to keep it real and emphasize how important it is see your self worth. It’s something that I think we’ve all struggled with at some point or perhaps may be dealing with now. I’ve been an over achiever and “perform to pleaser” my entire life and it wasn’t until recently that I realized some times just showing up IS good enough. Special thanks to Lindsey Williams for the interview and photographer Angela Goodhart for the wonderful photos at Lake Anne Plaza in Reston. I’ve included a link to the piece.. hope you enjoy.

Do your thing and don’t care if they like it. – Tina Fey

 

Asian American Half Hour Special Airing this Saturday

Please join me and Eun Yang this Saturday as we commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a 30 minute Special on NBC4. We have so many incredible Asian Americans who are making an impact where we live now. Their stories will amaze you and inspire. The Special show airs Saturday May 10th at 7:30PM. Special thanks to our sponsors Allstate Insurance and McDonald’s.

Some history.. the Library of Congress chose May for this month “to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.” Eun and I headed over to the beautiful residence of the Japanese Ambassador to film the show. Shout out to our producer Jason Gittlen and photographer Chester Panzer.

Some of the stories you’ll see will range from an Oakton woman with a real rags to riches story. Rosemary Tran Lauer has a true story of triumph over war, welfare and cancer after fleeing her native Vietnam and arriving in America with nothing. Eun shows us a local group that helps young people find their way in what can be a very complicated world. Just a couple of the many great stories we can’t wait to share.  Won’t you join us!

ASIAN AMERICAN & PACIFIC ISLANDER TV SPECIAL

SATURDAY MAY 10TH

7:30 PM ON NBC4

We’ll see you then.. Angie & Eun!



Sitting Down with Lorena Bobbitt

True story… I met Lorena Bobbitt years ago at a salon in Virginia. I needed someone to shape my eyebrows last minute and didn’t have an appointment. Lorena kindly said she would squeeze me in.. although she had an already stacked schedule doing her specialty at the time- cutting hair. Unexpectedly I was finally able to put  a face to a story that I had heard about as a young teenager while living in Korea. I mean who hadn’t? The news stories, the tabloids, the jokes.. many which  still elicit giggles today. Looking and talking with this stylist I would have never known she could be behind a story that would transfix the nation. She was soft spoken, had a sweet demeanor and a motherly sense about her.  She didn’t know who I was.. and only later in our appointment found out I worked in news. Knowing what I did.. she never put her guard  up at all. Of course I wasn’t there to ask questions and I didn’t.

After staying in touch over the years Lorena finally said yes to doing an interview with me about her life now. This after admitting she has trouble trusting reporters. This year marks 20 years since she was found not guilty. A lot has changed. Living in Gainesville Virginia she has built a family with a man who she met in college. He’s been her best friend and love of her life for the last 16 years. Together they have an 8 year old daughter, Olivia. Lorena has also found a great group of friends doing one of her favorite things- zumba. She’s leaned on them for support of her life’s mission…  helping victims of domestic violence through her foundation Lorena’s Red Wagon. Lorena confidently says she’s not a victim anymore and has decided to own the name that brought her so much notoriety.  She hopes battered women learn from her story.

I’ll report two stories starting Monday. The first will air Monday at 6pm and in it Lorena will take us back to that night in 1993 that changed her life forever. We also share some laughs about her dating life after (they were lining up!) while looking at why now she proudly says “I’m Lorena Bobbitt.”

Tuesday at 4pm is a story that highlights what this hair stylist turned real estate agent is really passionate about. We look at the work her charity has done to help shelters across Prince William County. We also see how she lost 20 pounds in 10 weeks. Lorena says mentally and physically at age 44 she’s never felt better. She’s finally branching out and even delving into social media. You’ll be surprised to see what shocked her the most after googling her name for the first time.

Follow me on twitter at  @ohmygoff for updates and other parts of our day together that didn’t make it into the story.

No Tears!

Bob’s first official Easter Bunny photo and no tears from him or big sister.
In fact.. I think she thinks people were there to take pictures with her.

The Golden Egg

One of our family’s favorite holidays is Easter.  We got the kids together for some old fashion Easter photos. We’ll see how they do when they meet Mr. Easter Bunny!  Adora is 3… and no longer scared of Santa so this gives me hope.

Egg hunt and marshamallow harvest

Great Country Farms did it again! Another beautiful weekend for an old fashion egg hunt and peeps marshmallow harvest! Adora had a great time looking for eggs. Bob got to meet the Easter Bunny for the first time. We roasted marshmallows and hitched a ride on the cow train. This is such a fun family tradition! The farm is now open daily 10am-5pm in April. If you missed the egg hunt.. the Strawberry Jubilee in May is always really fun and worth the drive.
