Sheena Parveen Left us for this Hottie, Snow Pixs, Kristen Welker Party – Philly Gossip

Happy happy Monday. I can’t believe Christmas is next week. This month, this year, going by so fast. My mom always told me this would be the case as I got older and she was right. I really wish everyone a very happy holiday season, and new year. This past weekend was picture perfect. I spent Friday at Christmas Village with my Cabot Cheese family, handing out samples, and gifts and chatting with a lot of people.  Saturday and Sunday were picture perfect as well. Here are a few shots….

Don’t drive DRUNK. 22nd Street below Chestnut, Sunday at 230AM. A guy hit this parked car, and drove off. He didn’t get far as both his airbags deployed and he was trying to drive holding one up so he could see where he was going. With the helpful descriptions from witnesses’ I caught up with him about 2 blocks away, as I was relaying info to 911. The cops came and snagged him.

Speaking of Justin Pizzi, after an early evening goodbye cocktail party with us, he headed to former Fairmount resident, NBC10 reporter now a NBC White House Correspondent, Kristen Welker‘s engagement party. She’s marrying John Hughes (l), who proposed June 24. A 2017 wedding is planned. Every January Kristen’s mom Julie Welker sends me a magnetic calendar of a photo of her, Kristen and President and Mrs Obama.

The room was gorgeous. OMG I tried to take home a flower centerpiece, don’t look at me that way, we were allowed. The problem, it weighed about 25 pounds cause it was full of water at the top. I got a half a block away and left it on a nice bench outside a store. It stayed there nearly all week.Christie

Ryan and Katie Gagnon, recently moved back to NJ, closer to NYC, expecting their baby boy in about 15 weeks. Katie also works with me at PhillyChitChat and sells my ad space, so if you want to advertise on PCC I’ll put you in touch with her.
