Fall Housewarming

Congrats to my friend Kristina on her new beautiful home! We stopped by to toast the new digs in Arlington and she was truly the hostess with the mostest. She had a great spread and I just adored the mini pumpkin spice cakes with vanilla glaze. She added twix bars as stems! How cute. Fall.. such a fun time for a party!

Adora with proud new homeowner!


Great deck comes with a loyal watchdog!

With June bug

The backyard is huge… perfect for entertaining (and letting wild kids run free)

There was a mild case of pumpkin chunkin’ before entering.


Holiday spirit with sisters

One of the best parts about college was meeting friends who I know will be there for a lifetime. Every now and then my AOII sisters from George Mason will gather to catch up. We decided to meet to share stories and a little holiday cheer at the Tasting Room at Reston Town Center. It was so good to see everyone again!

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’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 where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.
