The Mother Of All Baby Showers is coming to Davie's Young At Art Museum on Friday, October 4th, 2013! The event runs from 5:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. and is everything the name implies. Just browsing the list of educational sessions made me really wish I attended something like this back when I was pregnant with Ethan. Talk about a safe place for new and expectant moms to have their questions answered and their neurosis validated! Can we also take a minute to gush over the $20,000 in giveaways being handed out to some super lucky mommies? With vendors including Baby K'Tan, Britax, Boogie Wipes, Happy Family, Pediped and just about every other big name in the baby business, I am feeling all fan girl about getting to check out some of the latest stuff on the baby market. After all, it's been a couple of years since I was once a new mommy sobbing in a total panic while trying to compile my baby registry and this stuff changes all the time. I'm looking forward to re-learning the ropes so maybe I'm a little ahead of the game this time when it comes to baby #2. (There, I said it.) (No, I don't have anything to tell you yet.)
While I may not be a new mommy (you have no idea how much it pained me to admit that) these days, I'm still a mommy. And that means I'm as frazzled as they come. I think I'm starting to dream about the pampering suite sponsored by Zenerations of Boca. Hand, feet, massage and skin specialists will be there to help you melt the stress away while you're surrounded by awesome products to try before you buy (baby food makers?! Strollers?! Wraps and carriers?!) and snacking on delicious treats. Once I heard Rosie Pope of Bravo's "Pregnant In Heels" would be attending and speaking during one of the educational sessions, I was there faster than you can say swag bag.
I was on bedrest during Ethan's pregnancy just in time for the Casey Anthony trial. (I know, my luck astounds me, too.) I sat in bed and instead would marathon episodes of "Pregnant In Heels" and wonder why I wasn't as glamorous and put together as Rosie Pope in between blood pressure readings. (The woman has the patience of a saint, I tell you.) I'm extremely excited to hear what Rosie Pope has to say and test my own Mommy IQ during her session!
I'm interrupting myself to give a couple of introductions:
Allow me to introduce you to Melissa and April, both new mommies and fellow South Florida bloggers. I'm so excited to be attending The Mother Of All Baby Showers South Florida with these awesome women and even more excited to be teaming up to give three winners the opportunity to win two tickets each to this spectacular event!
There's still time to register for the Mother Of All Baby Showers so be sure to get your tickets! We can't wait to see you there!
