Big thanks to dear friends Rebecca Cooper and Jill Collins for throwing the best Sip ‘n’ See at Carmine’s for Bob and Alison Starling’s little Ava.

Tickled Pink 2013

With three weeks left before I’m scheduled to pop I was a little nervous about jumping on stage for a fashion show. However, I knew it would be a forgiving crowd because the Tickled Pink Mother-Daughter Tea is all about being a momma! The Lilly Pulitzer fashion show is one of my favorite events. It benefits Children’s Hospital and always draws the best crowd. For the third year in a row we walked the catwalk. Adora even waved to the crowd and did a twirl at the end of the runway! Thank you to everyone who came out to support! Photos by imijphoto.com and Kipp Burgoyne

Lilly Pulitzer Mother-Daughter Tea & Fashion Show

It’s one of my favorite events of the year… the Tickled Pink Mother-Daughter Tea and Fashion Show at the Fairmont. It benefits the Make a Wish. The Pink Palm helps us pick out all our Lilly Pulitzer. It’s definitely the ultimate gathering for the girls and the kids love it. Adora actually walked this year and had a hilarious debut. When people started calpping for her.. she joined them in clapping for herself. When she saw dad in the crowd she started yelling and with arms wide open tried to run off the stage to him– precious!

Where the beef… meets broadcast

Shawn, Me and Elaine with Chef Philippe Reininger

The weather was perfect for an afternoon lunch with the news gals here in DC. This time we gathered at the new J&G Steakhouse on 15th and Pennsylvania. As we enjoyed appetizing fried calamari and rice cracker crusted tuna we laughed about being moms and the new “Go the ___ to Sleep” book that’s all the rave these days amongst parents. When it was entree’ time we were impressed to find out that the steakhouse is vegan friendly! A couple of the gals had no problem ordering. Halibut in a scallion-spicy chili sauce was a popular pick this day. I was also happy to see they have Sips & Bites from 5-7pm on weekdays where you can get smaller portions of their dishes paired with wine at the wine bar.

Adora visits WUSA TV

The future newsie in her onesie made the rounds at WUSA this morning! It’s the first time my colleagues have Adora in person. She is so spoiled. She’s already won the hearts of her TV dads Mike and Howie B. Check out the cool gifts they got her!  Also notice, Adora made Mikes’s daily newsroom webcast… despite her expression she was really happy to be there.
