Finding My Mommy Style

Last night Megan, Amanda, and I went to see Rosie Pope talk about "Finding Your Mommy Style". Rosie is a famous pregnancy concierge (which means she caters to pregnant women for literally whatever they may need prior to giving birth) and also owns a maternity clothing store. She has a show on Bravo called "Pregnant in Heels". I honestly have only seen it once or twice, but she is hilarious and I will most definitely watch it from now on!

The event was held at Workplay which was a really nice venue. They had snacks and complimentary drinks (and non-alcoholic ones!) which always is an easy convicing for me to attend. Oh yeah, and the tickets were free! Score! You had me at free. Anyways, there was an initial cocktail hour and then Rosie and a couple young women sat on stage and just had open discussion about any and everything. Audience members could ask questions also but I was feeling shy so I didn't. It was really fun, hilarious, and I honestly learned a lot! I think it was neat that so many women could get together and talk about many subjects that we often don't talk about like the bad side of pregnancy, conflicts in marriage after baby, and other difficult situations we may face as mothers or mothers-to-be.

Afterwards, we got to go down and actually talk with Rosie and the other panelists, and we got our picture taken with her. OH, and she is pregnant! I asked her when she was due and she said May. Is it weird I got really excited that I am due before someone else!? lol!

Here are a few photo's from the night:

The stage and VIP area (which we were not cool enough to be in) before the show got started.

My non-alcoholic beverage which tasted like a Shirley Temple = Yummy!
