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

Look! Lilly lands in Northern Virginia

If you know me you know I’m a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan which is why I was so excited to find out there was a new store opening at Tysons Galleria. My little Lilly girl and I stopped by for their pink posh grand opening. It was like a Lilly wonderland… surrounded by new patterns on their classic cuts and styles!

A pink toast to all things pretty!

Such a great choice for a Spring horse race.

Someone really liked what she saw!

Like this adorable number for girls.

More pink lemonade please

Colorfully exhausted!

 

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!

A ShamRockin’ Birthday

My St. Patrick’s Day got off to a great start. Around 5AM the wonderful morning show crew surprised me with cupcakes and a cake (that tasted like COSTCO cake- my favorite!). Between the flowers, facebook messages and tweets, phone calls and texts I feel very fortunate to have lived another year and to have had such incredible people in my life. Thank you! Be safe everyone and hope you strike the luck of the Irish today!

Party’s over.. let’s go!

For the fathers

I hope all the dads out there enjoy this Sunday set aside just for them! It’s extra special for us since we’ll be celebrating our first Father’s Day.

… and a very big thank you to dad and papa for loving us so much.

 

Half Birthday: Adora turns 6 months!

She’s got two teeth and still no knees… my little Adora turns 6 months today. We celebrated her half-birthday (isn’t that the trend these days?) at Red Velvet. Click here for more pictures…

Having her first taste of frosting!

The winning outfit

You voted… I rented! The off-white floral couture dress won out by a big margin. I wore the pink ombre Bacall earrings. Those sneaks belong to our beloved Bob Madigan

Tickled Pink: Mom & Daughter Fashion Show

Life, Lilly and the Pursuit of Happiness! You could feel the Palm Beach brand’s motto a million times over at Tickled Pink 8… an annual mother-daughter tea held at the Fairmont Hotel on M Street. Biscuits, scones, egg and salmon sandwiches and unlimited mimosas were on hand. We took part in the Lilly fashion show wearing prints provided by The Pink Palm.

Other news mommies who walked the colorful catwalk included 9NEWS’ Lesli Foster and daughter Jordan and NBC4’s Eun Yang and little Carys.  It was Adora’s first fashion show.. and she proved modeling is tough work. The poor baby passed out before our final walk to close the show. Great photos by Kipp Burgoyne, Alex Naini and Lesli Foster.
