New York Huggies Event with Angie Harmon

I know, it’s about time right? It’s been a whole week since my family and I have been back from NY and I can officially be labeled a slacker for not posting this sooner.

Well, the awesome ladies at Edelman PR invited us to New York to attend the Huggies Little Movers event and auction in Madison Square Park. I’ve never been there, so it was pretty exciting to be able to fly across the country and finally see what everyone has been talking about! The only down side? We were actually IN New York for a total of 19 hours… I know. We plan to go back though. :)

While it was a super short trip, it was still pretty flipping awesome. We were able to have a little chat with the lovely Angie Harmon before attending the event, which was put on to help to raise money for KaBOOM!. Angie and her husband Jason Sehorn (swoon) were our celebrity hosts and signed a pair of Big Movers shoes for the auction. Check out the shoes signed by other celebrity parents here.

Here’s a little video recap:

The other bloggers that attended were Miss Zoot, Poop & Boogies, Metalia, Blasian Baby Notes, and I Pretty Much Hate Everything. Those are some hilarious people right there, let me tell you! Since we all brought our babies, the atmosphere was just so relaxed and there wasn’t much pressure at all… and it was truly a nice break! It was so great to be able to meet and spend a little time with all of them while we were there.

And now… PHOTOS!

She was so nice and down to earth. I think right here she was playing with one of the kid's little plastic phones.

Maddie seriously didn't want to leave. Did you see that part in the video where she threw a hissy? Drama.

There was a whole play area set up for the babies... it was a mini obstacle course! So cute.

Thank you so much to Edelman and Huggies for giving us this great opportunity! We had such a fabulous time!

New York Huggies Event – A Small Preview

Since our internet is down at home (FML), it’s going to take me a little longer than I would like to show you all what we’ve been up to the past few days. It’s so good though, trust me!

Just to hold you over, here’s a little preview:

A few things to note:

  • The frazzled young mom
  • The angry baby who smelled like spit up and bananas
  • The amazingly GORGEOUS Angie Harmon
  • The overly-enthused husband… I wouldn’t be surprised if he was trying to hold her hand behind me.
