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.

Morning Glory Private Screening

Thanks to all who came out for the private screening of news comedy  Morning Glory starring Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams.  Big shout outs to members of the 9NEWS morning team who stayed out on a school night: Andrea, Mike, Kristine and Producer Dan and Heather!

We had a great night and enjoyed seeing our colleague Mike Hydeck in the opening scenes playing a local anchorman. His performance (along side Colin Powell’s daughter) was bravo bravo! Special thanks to Paramount Pictures and Allied Marketing for helping organize the feature presentation affair. Morning Glory is now in theaters.

OMG 3/16/10: Clooney's GF, Elephant Parade, Foursquare Party

OMG on WUSA9 March 16, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)– Oh My GOFF! Angie reports on Kate Winslet’s breakup, George Clooney’s girlfriend has a new TV gig and Giselle returns to modeling after baby. Locally, elephants parade in DC, Metromix throws a Foursquare party and who are the Audrey Bouviers?

DC's New High Society Sorority?

I say sorority because when it comes to women who value fashion, fun and filling the dire holes in our community it takes me back to my college days as an AOII.   But winning Greek week, beer pong olympics or taking $299 all inclusive spring break trips to the Bahamas aren’t part of these girls’ agenda.

They call themselves “The Audrey Bouviers“. Named after hollywood royalty Audrey Hepburn and fashion icon Jackie O (maiden name was Bouvier) this new group of women is all about style, sophistication and serving the community.

Founder Sanam Toossi tells OMG this select group of professional women will commit to 4 big community projects a year that include everything from gardening to serving food. If you’ve got the grace it takes and the heart to give… vist theaudreybouviers.org for more information.

Watch Monday:  OMG Report  on WUSA-TV (CBS) at 5:54AM ET for coverage of The Audrey Bouvier’s kick-off party!
