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.

Using Her Powers: Lynda Carter for Komen

I had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with ‘Wonder Woman’ herself, Lynda Carter in her gorgeous Potomac home.

 We talked about her strong stand against breast cancer and being a ‘pioneering sister’ in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She recalls the time she was told not to use the word ‘breast’ when testifying before Congress. Oh how far we have come!

Georgetown Cupcake Gets TLC Reality Show

georgetowncupcake.comAn industry insider tells me DC’s sweetest duo, sisters Katherine and Sophie of Georgetown Cupcake will star in their own reality show. Production for a series on TLC is scheduled to start this month. The network is already running a popular pastry inspired show Cake Boss.

From what I’m told the plot digs way past the frosting… into the core of what’s behind this cupcake making power that has taken the Nation’s capitol by storm!

I have to admit Katherine & Sophie are two of my favorite guests in studio and I love that they let me go wild with the frosting tube! Do you have a favorite flavor at GC?
