Phoebe Thompson


Crystal Walker is a DC-based lawyer, wife, and mother of four, who recently arrived from the glorious midwest. When she's not busy juggling all those balls, she enjoys blogging about her family's adventures in the nation's capital, shopping for bargains, and searching for nirvana via yoga and the *occasional* (really!) cocktail. Of course her favorite pastime is gleefully skewering the privileged and powerful DC elites with her BFF, Phoebe Thompson.

Phoebe Thompson hails from Mother England, but has happily embraced not just the USA, but DC in particular, especially the politics, prestige and pisco sours. She is mother to twin girls, wife to darling husband, Brad (otherwise known as the oldballandchain), and best friend to Crystal. In her previous life (before marriage and children), she was an accomplished on-air journalist with the BBC, but now she is an extremely busy SAHM, a sacrifice she made in order to ensure her girls have the best possible support system as they grow (as long as it doesn't get in the way of her tennis lessons at the Club). Aside from tennis, Phoebe's other passions include fashion, yoga, and plotting her revenge against the snobby Villagers who have snubbed her over the years.
