To be a mother…

I’m still trying to figure that out on a daily basis. All I know is that I’m more happy in my life than ever before. I’m also more tired.. but with that find I have strength I never knew existed. I think all you moms out there can relate.. and just want to say hats off to you. It’s a tough job.. and many of you are doing it while balancing many other aspects of life. Pat yourself on the back— you deserve it. PS: Do it often, you don’t need a day to tell you how much your needed and how much you do. xo

Happy Mother’s day to my incredible and fierce momma CHIN!

Spent this day with my wonderful husband and baby, Adora Kate too.

He put a ring on it!

Congrats to our dear friend and WJLA evening anchor Alison Starling on getting engaged! Her news beau NBC Correspondent Peter Alexander popped the question while they were in Paris! Alison sent me this pic (I see bling!) and says “We’re over the moon!”  Best wishes to the bride-to-be and her lucky man.

Backyard BBQ

We got our grill on to give thanks to the great men in our lives. Happy Father’s day to all of you guys out there!

Tackle Box’s Grand Opening

Yesterday renowned sea food restaurant Tackle Box opened its second location in the DC area. The newest location is in Cleveland Park adjacent to the Uptown Theater.

The Grand Opening welcomed my morning colleague Andrea Roane and John Scriffen from NBC 4. Capitol File Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Kate Bennett was also there with her family.

The interior design was inspired and created by Umbel himself. The menu has been expanded and is headlined by the New England Lobster Pot which you can take pleasure in customizing yourself.  Bon Appetite!

WHCD Weekend: Rented the dresses and all!

Michelle Obama donned a long Halston dress at the White House Correspondents Dinner the same designer I chose to wear too! Hers was probably a gazillion dollars where mine cost only$75bucks. HOW you ask? I RENTED it.

Yep-   It’s my new favorite thing. Renting dresses and jewelry from Rent-the-Runway.com. There’s designers fit for the First Lady you can rent for a fraction of the cost. I mean- some are only $25!  Not only did I rent the Jet Black Halston for the party night.. I got a Lela Rose dress for brunch the next day.

This is how it works. You choose the 4 day span to rent your dress for time to get it, wear it and mail it back. They give you all you need. Oh and here’s a perk- you can choose a second size for free! The Halston halter was $455 but I rented it for $75. I also rented the this $545 Dannijo cuff.. for $45.

CAUGHT sleeping during church

We won’t hold it against baby Adora. It was her first visit to church and she didn’t cry once. I brought her up with me to take Communion and she was blessed. It was the sweetest thing.. she looked like a real angel.

Adora: "I was born COCKY!"

It’s gametime baby. All morning long I’ve been fired up about South Carolina’s fight for the SEC Championship against #1 ranked Auburn.

We scored our first touchdown!

The excitement was short lived. Everyone knows babies are innocent- we can’t hide how we truly feel.

What was so funny– despite the loss– daddy was still smiling for some reason.

Fall Favorite: Capital City Ball

We had a blast at the ball!  Held at the historic Washington Club on Dupont Circle, the 2010 Capital City Ball raised funds and awareness to fight human trafficking. Money raised went to local non profits like Fair Fund and Courtney’s House. Silent auction prizes included a trip to Italy and a pair of shoes worn and signed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
