Correspondents Dinner

Journalists from all networks .. national and international, print and radio¬†turned out for the annual Correspondents Dinner at the Washington Convention Center. WUSA had a nice little table too. I have to say Rep. Anthony Weiner and The Daily Show’s Larry Wilmore both killed it on stage— and anyone who’s been to these dinners know– this is one crowd that’s tough to crack.

Lindsey Mastis, Mike Hydeck, Anny Hong, Gary Nurenberg, Angie Goff and Ellen Scott.

Cherry Blossom's Pink Tie Party

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…
