Ellen's Mother Day Show Recap

If you've been following me along on Instagram or Facebook, then you know I was one of the lucky ones to be chosen to attend the Ellen Show for her Mother's Day special! (P.S. it aired May 11th, 2017) - I also posted a few of the photos and links on my Pinterest Board for this show!

I was so ecstatic when I received the email from Ellen that I was invited to be an audience member! I literally cried tears of happiness. In the email, it let us know to bring a Large vehicle so we made sure we came prepared! My mom and I drove the truck out to Burbank early in the morning and spent some time with my aunt who lives less than a mile away from the Warner Brother Studios. We knew we would hit some traffic with the work commuters since it was a Wednesday so we wanted to make sure we got to her house early in case we had any issues.  My friend was chosen to go to the show as well and met us at my aunts house before.  

My friend and I went to grab some lunch before we had to check-in for the show. We parked, got our Ellen parking pass, and walked around the corner to the cutest Italian restaurant called Ciao Cristina. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend it! It was very good and they had some great options! My friend and I both ordered off the lunch menu; I ordered the Pizza Pocket which was served with pasta salad, and let me tell you... it hit the spot! 
We knew it was going to be a long day so we wanted to fill our bellies so we weren't starving, especially while pregnant.

After lunch we got in line and checked in. Then the waiting game began. We got picked to be interviewed, but didn't get chosen, I'm still not sure what it was for because they never did anything with the girls who got picked.  We waited for them to call our numbers to cross the street into the studio.

It was a pretty quick process once we crossed the street, and went through the security line. We walked through the Ellen shop and of course they had some Ellen onesies lined up for sale. They were cute! I should have bought one! But I didn't want to carry it around before the show.

They had food set out for all the Mom-to-Be's, which they normally do not have for their regular shows, so that was a nice touch for the Mother's Day special! Once we got into the theater they gave us our seats. (Middle, 7th row back!) They got us amped up for the show, did some pregnancy dancing with the ladies, and had a few dance contests. It was really fun!

On the show, they started off with some gifts in the very beginning, and moved on to introduce the pickle guy, a sexy "Dr." with a delivery room, and an actual EMT in case anyone went into labor (There were TWO girls who were like a week away from giving birth!) The guests of the show were Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. They were SO funny together!  If you missed the episode, you can watch clips from it here.

Ellen gave away SO many wonderful gifts to all the audience members! Here is what we received:
