Pregnancy Awareness Month LA Launch Event #MayPAM

I had a fabulous time with Baby Hsu at the Pregnancy Awareness Month Los Angeles Launch Event at The Skirball Center today!  I was very honored to have been invited by Andrea Fellman of Savvy Sassy Moms to attend the VIP blogger tea where I met a lot of wonderful bloggers.  This year marks the 5th year of celebrating Pregnancy Awareness Month (PAM).  I remember when I first attended a PAM event in 2010 (previous post may be read here), I was pregnant with Baby Hsu and had a memorable time.  Now, being a first time mommy, I again received a lot of information from this FREE event.
