Fashion’s Night Out

Pounding Rain, 2 and half hours sitting in traffic.. nothing could keep me away from Fashion’s Night Out. I joined good girlfriends to toast FNO Georgetown at the VIP reception held at L2. From their we made our rounds to Dean & Deluca, Nectar Skin Bar, Intermix  and more. We enjoyed Citronelle’s fashion show and great wining and dining at Peacock Cafe’ after hours.  Check out more pictures from DC’s most fashionable night!

Oh and of course you know who had to partake in FNO! Check out her new boots.

Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.

A glance at some gifts…

Miss VA Caressa Cameron is now Miss America 2010. Way to go girl! Hats off to our pal Jen Corey for making the top 12 and performing brilliantly during the talent competition. You shined!

Casino Night

[Picture: I first met Caressa this Fall at USO Casino Night at the Sheraton in Arlington… for veterans staying at Walter Reed. Very gracious gal and we know she will make America proud! Also pictured Kelly Olson and former TV “Bachelor” Andy Baldwin]

Miss California Kristy Cavinder was 1st runner up. I was a huge fan of our friend Jen from DC of course but also took a liking to Miss Hawaii who had a down to Earth, tomboy like attitude. Miss Arkansas was great too and really embodied that old glam Miss America look. Miss Puerto Rico was just flat out striking. Read more from The Examiner 

We’ll work on getting Caressa in for a studio interview at Channel 9.

 Maybe she’ll let me try on that crown… but we know how that turned out last time I had a chance. See below.
