1. We, the women of the Washington Life editorial team, just drank an absurd amount of pink champagne right next to Jennifer Garner at the Jefferson Hotel. She was wearing glasses, her hair back, and minimal makeup, so it took us a little while to identify her. But Ali, our editorial assistant, brought it to our attention that we were drunkenly babbling next to JenGar.
2. When we realized that we were next to her and her mysterious blonde friend in a sundress, we did not hold back on doing Center Stage dance moves or speaking in non-indoor voices. We may have in fact offended her when we were screaming like lemurs about how we are the three musketeers and can never work without each other. But she kept chomping on her salad, checking her blackberry, and consuming some sort of three layer shot in a test tube.
3. Before chilaxing with Jen G, we were painting our souls out at our colleague Michael Clements’ brainchild, ArtJamz, held for the first time at the Corcoran Museum. We came up with some pretty interesting expressions of our inner chi, all that will hang at the Corcoran for a few days. Michael’s idea is a sure fire hit, considering it’s fun as hell, held in a major museum, and has free flowing booze. I thought Kelly might actually burst when she started furiously painting a green bush of her homeland, Maine.
Here are some photos of Jennifer Garner’s besties (that would be us) getting artsy: love it!
