Had a chance to interview 25 year old actress and singer #KekePalmer today for #GoodDayAtlanta. Impressive young lady who's come a long way since #AkeelahandtheBee. Nice to see this child star blossom into such a talented and grounded young woman. Her new movie #Pimp will surely be a talker.
Day two joining @buckfox5 on the anchor desk. This is what happens when you have two anchors on maternity leave and two taking time off. 😄 Since that means Jeff Hill is doing weather this morning, Buck is surrounded by meteorologists. I think he’s quickly on his way to an honorary meteorology degree. @fox5atlanta
Sooo.... Aungelique Proctor is devastated knowing today is her last day working w/the one & only Tim Whaley on the dayshift. Meantime, I'm doing the #happydance knowing he's joining the #GoodDayAtlanta crew!🎊😀🎉 Don't forget to set that early alarm, Tim! Can't wait to see the look on your face Monday morning. 🌞🕓🌞
#TBT to earlier this week when Executive Chef John Metz made an appearance on @GoodDayAtlanta’s #VaHiTourofHomes segment! We’re so excited to be a part of this awesome event again this year, and can’t wait to see you there this weekend. (Learn more about the 24th Annual Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes and buy tickets at www.vahitourofhomes.org!)
Feeling Blessed & Grateful for another year with loved ones near and far.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Pappas-Lawson Family. 🍁❤

Nothing wrong with a touch of color during a crisp Autumn Day! 🍁
I stumbled on today's dress while I was shopping for Holiday Decorations. Ran into #Steinmart and couldn't resist adding this to my wardrobe. 💕👗
