“The Office” actress Angela Kinsey, our celebrity Virtual Baby Shower honoree, will be a first-time mom very soon!

We will shower Angela with over 70 amazing gifts from our wonderful Baby Shower sponsors – and Jody, the winner of our Virtual Baby Shower contest, will win the exact same Baby Shower gifts that Angela will receive (worth over $2,500.00)!

As she prepares to welcome her baby girl at the beginning of May and “The Office” gets ready to run its final 6 episodes of the season, we at Pinks & Blues had the chance to catch up with Angela about her plans for her baby’s nursery, being pregnant while filming and more!

Pinks & Blues: You’re in the final stretch… How are you feeling? Are the final weeks going by at snail’s pace or flying by like a horse race?

Angela Kinsey: I feel great. A little short of breath at times but other than that I feel fine. So far for me this pregnancy is flying by, but I do feel like I’m in the final stretch. Bending over to pick things up is getting tough. Now when I drop things, unless they are really important, I just kick them out of my way. 😉 And I have become a huge fan of flip flops or anything that just slides on my feet. Ladies, please tell me I am not alone in this.

P&B: Obviously you can’t reveal any big juicy “Office” secrets… but can you reveal if Angela will be sporting a baby bump around Dunder Mifflin?

Angela: I can’t wait for everyone to see our new episodes but you won’t be seeing a baby bump. “Angela Martin” does a lot of filing and carrying folders, etc. in the next six episodes. Die-hard fans, forgive us, but with only six episodes left it was just too hard to make the time jump that my character would be preggers.

P&B: Do you have special theme for your daughter’s nursery?

Angela: No, not really. I just wanted it to feel cozy. If there was any theme it would be a spring day. I have a great gal who is painting a mural on one wall of a big flowering tree. There will be a few butterflies and some bunnies. And some grass and little flowers on the bottom. She just started and already it looks too cute!

P&B: Does anyone have a poll going around “The Office” to guess the date your baby will arrive, and her weight/height stats?

Angela: Ha! Yes there is. The crew has started an “Angela’s Baby Pool.” They have a calendar and you can buy a square for $10. You pick the date and time. It’s pretty funny. I have started having doctors appointments every week now and you should see how the ladies in the crew circle me after for details. I’ll be in the hair and makeup trailer and they’ll say coyly, “So, Ange any news from your doctor?”

The baby and mama (and even daddy!) Virtual Baby Shower goodies have been “pouring” in for Angela Kinsey and our contest winner Jody!

The virtual Headquarters is what we (appropriately) call the Pink Room at my (Sharon’s) house.

It’s just like Christmas morning here at Pinks & Blues!

But get ready… we’ve cataloged and photographed each gift, and will be sharing all these fabulous items with you in the coming week!

We’re beyond excited for the mamas-to-be!

Actress Angela Kinsey of NBC’s hit show “The Office” graciously answered a few more of our burning questions!

We know you are itching for “The Office” to return with new episodes (we are, too!) And it’s wonderful to know that that time will come sooner rather than later (read on for more about that!).

Angela is the celebrity honoree for our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower!

We will shower her with over 70 amazing gifts from our wonderful Baby Shower sponsors – and another lucky mama-to-be to will win the exact same Baby Shower gifts that Angela will receive (worth over $2,000.00)! (Vote HERE for the winner!)

Read on for our full interview! (Our previous interview with Angela can be found HERE!)

Pinks & Blues: Are you excited to go back to work on “The Office” now that the writers’ strike is over?

Angela Kinsey: I can’t wait to go back to work! Our writers are there working away but the actors do not go back until early March.

P&B: We bet you’ll be pampered by the cast and crew!

Angela: I can tell you that our cast and crew are really like family. So I know I’ll be in good hands. 😉

P&B: Our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower (where one lucky mama-to-be winner will receive the same gifts as you!) got 552 entries. Let us tell you, there are some huge fans of yours! How ’bout a shout-out!?

Angela: Hello mamas-to-be! I am so excited that we get to share in this Virtual Baby Shower experience. I have to tell ya’ll that my good friend, Lisa Elkinton, is a vendor on this site (Tiptoe Bows) and I can’t wait for you to get her adorable flip flops. I just think that this whole thing is too much fun!

P&B: Can you pass along the best piece of advice that you have received as a mama-to-be?

Angela: The best piece of advice I’ve gotten… hmmm, well that is tough. I feel like I’ve gotten so much good advice. One of my friends told me to enjoy it all. The tired moments, the happy moments, all of it is a gift. 🙂

rattle.jpgWe have posted the names and stories of our 10 Finalists in our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower. One of these lucky mamas-to-be will win the fabulous gift package of everything mama-baby-daddy that is imaginable… and our celebrity “The Office” mama-to-be Angela Kinsey will receive an identical gift package.

Our incredibly generous gift sponsors have made our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower so much fun to organize and plan, and Audrey, Jane and I thank each and every one of them with hearts so big! We will be posting photographs and descriptions of these oh-so-perfect gifts in the coming days.

And I want to take a few moments to thank each one of the 552 mamas-to-be, and friends and family members of the mamas-to-be, who entered our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower Contest. When I say that I wish each and every one of you could be a finalist, and winner, of our contest… I mean it with all my heart. This tribute is to each of you.

Each of you feels blessed in a way that makes you realize the meaning of the word “miracle.” This simple word resounded in story after story, page after page. Our panel of readers mentioned that to us time and time again… each baby is already recognized as a miracle. This miracle is bringing something of the divine right into your lives. In the midst of all the affairs of the world, your baby has captured his or her spot in our vast universe, and most especially, in your hearts. Your baby has brought you beauty and happiness that is almost unexplainable. Your baby has brought you a fortune that transcends any thought of money. Your baby is your great creation… your art, your novel, your music, your talents, your wisdom. Your baby is the center of your kingdom.

And then there is the love outside of that miracle. The love of your husbands, partners, surrogates. The love of your parents and grandparents. The love of your sisters and friends. The love of siblings, cousins, neighbors. The love for a virtual little stranger who will come into their arms, crawl at their feet, climb upon their laps… and give a zillion reasons why this love is so strong, so powerful, so precious, so amazing.

And the love that many, many of you mention… the love of God or a higher power. Your great faith has elevated your spirits and allowed the belief of your baby to become real, the proof of the hoped and prayed for. So many of you have never wavered in the belief of possibilities. You have embraced faith and now will embrace its rewards.

Enjoy the journey of your precious little miracle. Enjoy each moment. Find joy in each kick… and even each discomfort! We truly loved the story of your baby, and we hope that we will continue to hear from each of you as your pregnancy progresses. Mamas love to share the stories and the journeys of their babies… and we at Pinks & Blues love to hear them!

We can’t wait to see photos of their beautiful faces… and the stories to match! Thanks to each and every one of you!

– Sharon

sag-carpet-angela-kinsey21.jpgActress Angela Kinsey, who plays the uptight accountant Angela Martin on NBC’s hit show “The Office,” has a lot to be excited about this year!

Not only did the entire cast of “The Office” win the SAG Award for “Best Ensemble Cast” last month, but Angela is expecting her first baby – a girl! – in May!

We at Pinks & Blues have chosen Angela as the celebrity honoree for our Pinks & Blues Virtual Baby Shower!

We will shower her with over 60 amazing gifts from our wonderful Baby Shower sponsors – and we are holding a contest for another lucky mama-to-be to win the exact same Baby Shower gifts that Angela will receive (worth over $2,000.00)!

We recently had a virtual chat with Angela! Read on for our full interview with this smart, funny and talented mama-to-be!

Pinks & Blues: We hear you’re having a girl! Congratulations! Did you have any “girl” intuition before you found out, or was it a total shock?

Angela Kinsey: In most of my dreams, my baby was a girl. So maybe that was a form of intuition!

P&B: You look incredible! We guess that debunks the Old Wives’ tale that “girls drain your beauty!” How has your “pre-event” beauty regimen changed now that you’re pregnant? (Can you still get your shoes on by yourself!?)

Angela: Ha! This question made me laugh because for the SAG Awards I had to have my hair and makeup gals fasten my high heel straps! I couldn’t reach them! My beauty regimen other than that hasn’t changed. Well maybe there is more snacking!

P&B: We miss “The Office!” What have you been doing to keep busy during the writer’s strike?

Angela: Well being pregnant has kept me busy. There is so much I want to do to my little fixer upper house before the baby comes. I feel like there are not enough hours in the day!

P&B: Do you have “Mom jeans” ready for when you come home from the hospital!?

Angela: Yikes! Mom Jeans! Ummm, no. My Mom, the fabulous Bertie Kinsey, is an amazing seamstress. She quilts and sews and is so crafty. We call her the Southern Martha Stewart! For Christmas I brought home a bunch of my old jeans and she cut out the front of them and put a softy stretchy material for my expanding belly. That’s working for now. Thanks Mom!

P&B: OK, the most important question of all… were you rooting for the Patriots or the Giants? (And remember we’re from New England!!)

Angela: Now ladies, I love New England and that foxy Tom Brady, but my hubby grew up outside of New York, so sorry….we are a Giants house! I mean, I’m really a Cowboys fan, but for this Super Bowl I was rooting for NY. 🙂
