MetroMoms Event - The Bestest & Hottest

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend an event designed for local mom's and expecting mothers to get together and learn about some of the hottest products on the market. The MetroMoms Bestest & Hottest event is hosted by Metroplex Baby & Kids and is designed to not only unite expecting mom's and mom's alike to take a break from their daily grind, but to also showcase a large array of the hottest products designed to be used in their words from "Pregnancy to Preschool" and not only did we get to see all of these fab products, everyone attending the event got to draw a number in a raffle of sorts to be able to select one of these items to take home with them! Score, right?!?! Dinner and dessert was also included in the price of admission which was an absolute plus. I had never attended a MetroMom event before, but had been pumped about it from the moment I purchased my VIP ticket. Heck, that was an eventful experience in iteself as I waited several weeks anxiously for the tickets to go on sale just to find out that they would be going on pre-sale @ midnight on one specific night and unfortunately for me, I was very tired that day and thought that I was just not going to make it staying up till midnight and feared that the event would be sold out and I would miss on my chance of going. Well, the big pre-sale day finally came and I once again, anxiously waited for them to go on sale at the wretched hour of midnight, fighting back yawns and seriously considering going to bed and setting my alarm to wake me up a few minutes before and I finally received the email I had been waiting for, the coveted tickets were finally available and even a bit early at that! Of course, I quickly logged into the site, snagged up a VIP ticket online and headed to bed early that night!

I was really excited about the Bestest & Hottest leading all the way up to the day of the event and truly, had a really good time at the event itself. It was a LARGE group of women, over 100 mom's and expecting mom's, but it seemed that for the most part, fun was had by all and oddly enough, I was lucky enough to draw #23 out of over 100, so that was exciting too! Well, as you can imagine, even though I had a fairly good number considering the total guest count, all of the fabulous larger items were already picked by the time it came my turn, things like $600 strollers, highchairs, Step 2 playhouse, baby crib, etc. all of those things along with many other items had already been claimed. So, once it was my turn, honestly, there was very little I personally had a ton of interest in, but I decided to make the best of it and selected something that although it didn't make *me* super excited, I *knew* it would make my little Hudson beam with absolute joy. What product was it, you ask? Well, I know you're going to be completely jealous, but I was lucky enough to pick out a Little Men Working Training Potty for our little man! Glamourous? No, not so much, actually far from it, but Hudson seriously LOVES this thing and was all over me trying to take it off of my hands from the moment I walked in the back door. The power of a potty with wheels - purely amazing I tell ya! Although, he hasn't actually gone to "potty" on the potty yet, mostly just sits on it naked, wants to hear the engine sounds it makes (yes, this thing means serious business, lol!) and then just giggles and wiggles on his little potty, ha! That in itself my friends, is PRICELESS! In any case, I had a great time at the event and look forward to attending the next one this upcoming June.

Oh, and lest not forget, for your viewing pleasure....a lovely snapshot of myself with the magical potty on wheels as I lovingly call it, ha, ha!!!!
(and yes, I was laughing hysterically in the picture as you can tell)
