We had a wonderful time on Thursday night at our Girls Night Out & Meet Up at Hyatt Fairfax in Fair Lakes! Check the pictures below -- and you can see the full album on our Facebook page. Be sure to tag yourselves and go ahead and RSVP for our next upcoming events! We have a book club meet up at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner and also our annual charity event in November -- this year benefitting Autism Speaks.
Yesterday, I was invited to be on a "Sip and Share" panel at A Baby Affair at The Hill Center in DC. I was a guest - and the moderator (I kinda felt like Whoopi Goldberg on The View) - alongside Elizabeth Thorp, founder of Poshbrood and Editor in Chief of Capitol File Magazine, Danni Star, co-host of The Kane Show on Hot 99.5, and Nikki Johnson, founder and blogger of Super NOVA mom.
We had fun talking about being moms, living the busy DC area lifestyle, and sharing our favorite local resources and date night hot spots.
It was great to connect with other local moms in the audience and hear their questions too... ciao until next year! xo

We were so excited to find out that Marvel Universe Live was coming to the Patriot Center - and opening night did not disappoint. If you like fire and lights and action -- this is the show for you. There was no music, no sing-a-longs, etc. But there were men on fire, superheroes flying through the air, fast motorcycles with your favorite Marvel characters behind the wheel, and a storyline of defeating the enemies who wish to take over the world. Definitely a family friendly show and we had a blast!
We had so much fun that we're doing ANOTHER giveaway for a family 4 pack of tickets on our Facebook page today - head over and check it out! For show times and ticket information, you can get the scoop here.
