Olympic Customer

We have a wonderful family in town with a bon a fide Olympian as a member. Not just any Olympian, but a record breaking multiple time medal winning come back kid. Kid? Well she still looks like one, but is actually Dara Grace Torres and she was born April 15, 1967, in Los Angeles, California. She was the first swimmer in the US to compete in four Olympics: 1984, 1988, 1992, and 2000.
She has won nine Olympic medals, including four golds, and won five medals alone in at Sydney in 2000, the Games in which she was the eldest member on the team with her 33 years. On August 1st, 2007 at the age of 40 (just 15 months after giving birth to her first child), she won gold in the 100 meter freestyle at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, her 14th win at these events. She then followed that up on August 4th, by breaking her own American record in the 50 m freestyle.
She is currently training for the 2008 Summer Olympics and would become the first swimmer to make five Olympic teams and the oldest female Olympic swimmer, at age 41, were she to make the team.
Be sure to watch her qualify on non other than July 4, 2008 televised from Oklahoma. Over 70 of her immediate and extended family will be there to cheer her on. We will be cheering from home.
Bring it home Dara!

Monkey in the Middle

Last night a group of great friends gathered at a local hot spot, The Cottage
We came to celebrate our friend Sarah's second baby. The theme....Monkey's. Our endearing name for all offspring. It started at 7pm...We all played until midnight. I'd say it was a success.
She is adding to her brood, but his time It's a Boy. Congratulations my friend..... We love you.

French Luau

Happy Birthday to you..... Make a wish Nicole..... Throwing a themed party now catapults me into global event planning. I put together a luau themed birthday party at a french restaurant which was incredibly fun if I do say so myself. We had leis and grass skirts, tiki torches and tiki huts. Stay tuned for my next intergalactic event.

Population Boom

Today started as any other day. I came to work with many projects in mind and expecting a busy day with the sale. To my surprise my friend Kate came in with her twin girls, Lilly ( named appropriately) and Brooke ( still a great name). One second later my other friend Nicole came with her little one RJ. Now we have three. Wait one more second and another set of twins came in, Zoe and John Jr. with there mommy, yes our friend too.
Needless to say, no projects were complete and all of the customers stopped in awe over the beautiful babies.
We had such a wonderful time with all five of them,it can not be described. Thank God we have three girls, future clients of C. Orrico!!!! We love the boys too!

Better late than NEVER

What are the odds that eight of my closest friends did not see "Sex and the City The Movie" until Wednesday night? After all it had been running in theaters for 10 days. What had we done for ten days?
Well at 6:20 Wednesday night we were amazed, heart-broken, tickled silly, delighted, and shocked for 2hours and 35 minutes. After we went to dinner and talked about it for hours.
All of us left children,husbands, and houses to be with our Four favorite New Yorkers.
I thank all of you who had seen the movie and kept the elements safe and sound so I could experience it in full.
I also am looking for the book....That great book.. Love letters of Great Men
Way to go Big... you finally got it.

Party Hearty

We have been in meetings for the past few days with Lilly Pulitzer Corporate. Corporate can be dull and boring but mix in
Lilly Pulitzer, The Breakers Hotel, the beautiful sunny beaches and...........not so corporate.
We saw the new Resort 2008 Jubilee line, the Steinway Lilly Piano, The Lilly Jeep, smelled the new fragrance, tried on the Sunglasses and thumbed through the stationary and gift card samples.
Tired,not even...
Excited doesn't even do it justice
Come November your pink and green head will spin from the choices you will have.
When faced with a choice between two pick both...
