I went on an adventure last week, and by adventure I mean braving the LA traffic scene with an almost 4 year old and 18 month old in the car. The 4 year old is my little sister, Nina, and her mom (my step-mom) Beth, had been invited to this event hosted by Hollyrod (Holly Robinson-Peete’s charity with her husband, Rodney). Beth, you might recognize, from this photo:
Ok so does she look familiar??? Where are my Mad Men lovers at? Follow her on Twitter! Anyways, when she emailed me about it, she was asking if one of my Bling Mixers was in the LA store of Georgetown Cupcake. So I said, yes, and I WANNA GO! So, after some calls, we (Aubrey and I) were on the list. (and there really was a list at the front door. Felt so cool. Ha ha)
So we battled the LA traffic and got lost, but then found, Georgetown Cupcake.
Once you entered, to the left was wine from Cupcake Vineyards, cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, trunk show from Stella & Dot, and Holly herself – all dressed up and gorgeous. To the right was a few tables with chairs, a step & repeat, and bathrooms. I, of course, made a beeline to that first because pregnancy & long car rides don’t mix. I missed Beth getting her photos taken but with the magic of the internet, it’s like I was RIGHT THERE.
Cute, right? Even Nina wore sparkle shoes to match the Bling Mixer! Ok, maybe not but it works. Go with it
There was a cupcake decorating section in the kitchen area, and Nina was brought back there. Aubrey was a bit too small for it but we went to another spot…
She doesn’t look thrilled, but she was having a good time. Oh and look, it’s my bellah!
After sharing a mini cupcake (Spice, I believe?) we went over to get a few shots of Aubrey…
Here she is simultaneously waving to some ladies sitting at the table, while waving at me.
They were telling her look at your mommy, wave to your mommy in which she started pointing before running to me.
But hey, at least she knew where she was!
We headed out shortly after, and battled more traffic on the way back. Didn’t make it home till way after our usual dinner time, and I’m grateful I had the forethought to bring a granola bar for her. It was great seeing the mixer in person and I hope the event was a success for Hollyrod!
