  • Megyn's Baby Shower!

    Hey everyone!

    Soooooo,  here’s the project I’ve been working on over the last few weeks!  Actually, it was a team effort – myself, Mercedes Colwin, Megan Brown and Julie Banderas helped plan a surprise baby shower for Megyn and Doug – and unbelievably, Megyn had no CLUE!   It was a wonderful time — especially watching Megyn and Doug when we yelled SURPRISE and watching them opening all the cute baby gifts.  We had some celebrity Fox guests  including Mr. Bill O’Reilly who took time out of his busy day to make a special appearance!  Here are some of the pictures I took to share with all of you:

    And an update!  Here’s what Megyn wrote this morning:

    Hey everyone! Megyn here — I am SO THANKFUL to Janice, Mercedes, Julie and Megan Brown for putting on this amazing party for me and Doug and our little buddy! I was stunned. Completely. I truly believed we were going to a work function of Doug’s. He played it very cool (what a keeper he is — he loves surprising me). I am still looking at the presents in our apartment asking myself, “how did these get here? Did that really happen?”

    We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the beautiful friends and blessings in our lives and wish the same happiness for all of you. Especially Janice — who somehow finds the time to plan surprises like this, work a full-time career, and still be an amazing wife, mother of an infant, and good friend. She is an inspiration!

    Thank you everyone for the good wishes and see you tomorrow at 9am EST!

Megyn is so special, so sweet and wonderful, and if I can't watch FOX News too much during the day, I always make sure I watch the show with Megyn and Bill. What a wonderful team!!!!!!!!!!! Again Congratulations to Megyn and Doug. Get your rest now, you will need it.

HI everyone, JD, wow I was almost as surprised as Megyn. :) First class job on the planning JD. :) Little Matthew will have a little friend soon, they can be interns together. :) Wonderful event all the way around. :) In weather related news in the OV, nice day, warm aprox 80, but as I enter this text into the blog, it's overcast and looks like rain............ Had to be the a/c on just to cool things off, which is good on one hand, but on the other hand...... :) haha!

Awesome pics! I also love the Fox News Alert shirt. That is just priceless! On the weather front, it's hot, hot, and hot. We officially have 3 triple digit days in the 7 day forecast, and my hubby and baby boy will be out in it for 2 of them. Kyle is now officially a Cub Scout and goes to his first day camp next week. He is soooo excited. He's been waiting for this for 4 years since he watched his big brother do it. I had my weekly OB appointment this morning. He said that my blood sugar levels look great, baby looks great on the ultrasound, and see ya in 2 weeks. I also got a prescription for a pain killer that is safe since I had a splitting headache for 3 days that Tylenol couldn't get rid of. I just didn't want to be a pest and call in for it since I knew I was going in today.

I love it! Great photos. Tell us who all the folks are that we're not used to seeing. Megyn has said that it's a little boy.

Has Megyn and Doug announced if they are getting a bundle of boy, or girl? On the weather front, we are getting a STRONG thunder and lightening storm here at 5pm, EST. Pouring rain and early fireworks!!

Hey Margie.... You know I'm not surprised that Bill O'Reilly found time to attend the baby shower. He can be an intimidating figure, but something tells me that Mr. O is a big softy at heart.

Why am I not surprised that our Weather Machine was able to pull this off? It's great that you were able to enlist help from your Fox family members Mercedes, Julie and Megan my hat is off to all of you ladies. I can't speak about Doug, but I will trust in Megyn's instincts. Although I feel that Megyn and Doug will be wonderful parents, plus it doesn't hurt that Megyn is from the Tri-Cities as well. ;-) It shows that Fox News is not just a place to work, it's a family. You all are so lucky to have that.

The smiles on everyone's faces show how much they like Megyn -- and what a great place Fox News must be to work.

JD, What a sneaky but kind person you are! It is really heartwarming when someone who projects such a sweet personality on air is actually like that in real life. Megyn is lucky to have friends like you and the others. Thanks for sharing the photos. The smiles being shown say it all. We had a huge thunderstorm last night, albeit a brief one. Around 10:45 it poured for about 10-15 minutes with lightning and loud thunder. Both dogs wouldn't leave the waterbed. The neighbors rain gauge registered over an inch in that short period. Hot and humid today with a slight chance of more storms tonight. I hope all are doing well. JB

Hey JD, What a great suprise you pulled off! Looked like a fun celebration! Megyn is one of my favorites on Fox, right behind JD! Heard it on XM this morning as I was driving back from Charlotte after picking up my hubby at the Charlotte Douglas Airport. Muggy down in the flatlands, glad to get back up to the cool mountains!

Oops! Said that backwards. It is, of course, supposed to be "Let us rejoice and be glad in it". Brain's not fully functioning yet this morning. Either way...hope you caught my drift. :)

Hi Janice! Great pictures! Everybody looks like they're having a wonderful time. How sweet of you ladies to do this for Megyn and Doug!!! I know it was really appreciated. I wish them the very best on this excellent adventure they're embarking on. Only three more and y'all will be caught up with me! Yikes!! You know it's time to quit when they start coming in multiples!!! I thought my 3rd pregnancy would be my little girl, since I already had my 2 little boys. When it turned out to be 2 more boys, I just said, "OK, God, I get it. I'm not supposed to have a little girl and You want me to stop." So I did. Now all these many years later, God has given me 2 precious, beautiful granddaughters. Oh yeah, He's given me those 3 little grandsons to boot. How blessed am I!!!! I hope everybody has a wonderful day! "Let us be glad and rejoice in it!" Catch y'all later! Gwen ;)

Looks like a really fun "star-studded" baby shower! We just came in from the hot and humid morning. We have a shaded tennis court and got in a tennis and football "clinic." Too hot to add baseball this morning. Off to the pool soon before the thunderstorms roll in this afternoon. Heating up some homemade turkey gyros in pita bread for lunch. The turkey is an OK substitute for lamb but still not as good as the real thing (don't tell my wife!). I wish we could fry up some french fries for the side, but potato chips substituted for that. Still, not a bad lunch! The kids aren't crazy about it so more for me!!! Tony
