Flying again to Los Angeles at five months pregnant to the People's Choice Awards. Slightly worried about a six hour trip but feeling great and very excited for Waterford to create the awards for the show! Arrived in LA and sat outside with our Waterford team planning the walk on the red carpet and a skit talking about the Waterford brand with Chevy Chase and Jenna Elfman. We saw dozens of celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, Johnny Depp, and Carrie Underwood holding their new Waterford trophies as they took home a People's Choice Award win. The SLS hotel is amazing along with the gorgeous weather. Happy to be in LA! At a fun after party a young entrepreneur started to hit on me and didn't even notice I was five months pregnant! (I can still wear my regular clothes.) Totally flattering, especially being in LA, but NOT interested –- I couldn't be happier with my life!

Happy Valentine's Day to my family! I (or should I say we) ate an entire box of chocolate (remember my sweet girl loves candy)! I cannot believe it's eleven weeks to baby!

I took a breast-feeding an infant CPR class. I had taken these classes before my son was born (he is now two and a half), but I wanted a refresher and to be over prepared! Very exciting and an inspiring teacher! I also tried a pre-natal yoga class and loved it!

It's the week of Tabletop Market, our busiest event at work when we launch all of our amazing new products for the year. Everyone thought at nine months pregnant that I would not want to be on my feet working with press and magazine editors for four days straight, but it actually had the opposite effect. It kept me more focused and gave me more energy! On the home front the baby's room is finished, and we have all the gear ready that we will need for the baby. I have even washed all her clothes and have her nursery bedding ready. It is so much easier the second time!

I wrote a poem for my baby today. I can't wait to read it to her. It's about life and all the great opportunities she will learn about! I also included that she will have an amazing big brother that she will grow with that is so excited to meet her! I know I need to get my sleep now before the baby comes! I also know that my hubby John and I will be a great team.
