A sincere “Thank You” to Brittany Joe and Chris Siles of BCBG MAXAZRIA for styling the ladies of Sip With Socialites.

The 2013 Inauguration has been extremely busy this year for our 44th President Barack Obama. On Thursday, January 3, in the East Hall at Union Station in Washington, D.C. Vice President Joe Biden participated in the program and performed the swearing-in for the Hispanic members of the 113th Congress, and newly-elected CHCI and Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Rep. Rubén Hinojosa.

More than 600 people turned out for the ceremony to hear from Biden, Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar, former Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, and Senator Robert Menendez. Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart served as celebrity emcee and the event was hosted by Time Warner Cable.

Next, I headed off to the Kappa Ball at the Sheraton in Crystal City. Yet, somehow the night continued with me at the exclusive L2 Lounge in Georgetown.

Six hours later while walking with a sore back, heavy legs and tired feet I attempted to take a quick nap and get ready for City Tavern Club Inaugural Celebration.
