Big City Moms LOVES LA!

Big City Moms LOVES LA!

Our second stop for our Biggest Baby Shower Ever Event this year was Los Angeles… We had the best time – and loved every minute of it!

We cruised around 2 gorgeous cars from our partners at Chevy – a cute red Cadillac for Risa and a ginormous white Yukon Denali for me. Both were equipped with navigation systems to help us travel in unfamiliar territory as well as give us alternate routes so we could at least try to avoid the LA traffic.

We were able to enjoy some kid-free time before set-up began and hung out at the pool, shopped in Brentwood and took in a SoulCycle class and went to our favorite sushi joint Katsuya for dinner – all that in day one when we woke up at 4:30am NYC time!

Being a mom of 2 and having my own internal alarm clock – I managed to wake up at my normal NYC wake-up time as my daughter was getting ready to go to school…not only did my internal clock go off – we all received a giant wakeup call with an EARTHQUAKE! Maybe you west-coasters are used to them…but boy were we surprised! (and got us to start our day of set-up super early!)

Set up was a breeze with the help from our LA team and a HUGE Thanks to our partners at Remington Movers! (If you live on the west coast and are thinking of moving – those guys are the BEST!)

We Loved seeing all our favorite brands and meeting so many expectant and new parents….they all had that new mom and pregnancy glow – or maybe it was because its sunny and 80 degrees all the time!

Thank you to Lillebaby for gifting all our Super Pass holders with brand new carrier and to Beco and Britax for showering our Ultimate ticket holders with a carrier and a cool new stroller!

LA Baby Shower 2014

We had so much fun catching up with our speakers and getting educated on everything from Best Baby Gear from The Guncles and Mommy Loves Coffee and Breastfeeding from our friends at The Pump Station and Nurtury. Christopher Gavigan, co-founder of The Honest Company shared with us his tips for using safe and all natural products for our families and of course all the other important topics that new moms crave were discussed by our various panelists.

Our last stop on our LA trip was meeting up with Robert Nickell from My Life As A Dad…We dished about the “moms perspective” on what new dads (and seasoned) dads should and shouldn’t do…(the jury is out if I should let my husband watch it!)

We can’t wait to come back to LA (and escape the crazy NYC weather!!)
