My Today Show experiences – two to be exact

Ok, I just shared my Martha Stewart experience, and my picture in the NY Times this month, and now I’m going to tell that I visited the folks at the Today Show twice this past two weeks already… Oh, don’t worry, and stop rolling your eyes, no need to be über jealous or think I’m anything special, I wasn’t a superstar guest in any of these times. (I know, what the heck were they thinking? Well, they have my number now, wink wink…). Normally I don’t write about all of the events I go to here in my blog, but if you want to stalk, I mean, keep up with my goings, check out my Whrrl stories or follow me on Twitter @katjapresnal

A few weeks ago Utah got it’s first snow of the season and that was The Biggest News for the skiers across the nation, so the Utah Snowflakes and the nice people from the Park City Mountain Resort flew all the way to New York to tell the news. Did you already know that I am an official Snow Mama for Park City Mountain Resort..? More details soon, but it is something I am very passionate and excited about, and it involves two of my loves: writing and skiing, and more specifically – writing about skiing, and skiing in Utah. Some photos of the day…

And here are two clips of the Today Show appearance with Krista Parry of Park City Mountain Resort and her cute baby Jack. Oh, and if you don’t recognize me in the video – I’m the one wearing a ski hat and ski goggles and a sweater saying Park City Mountain Resort. Jack was so adorable that we also got a spot on the Today Show blog: And on Monday this week… launched and I was invited to the Today Show set to celebrate the kick off with two of my friends, and the Today Show producers, Mary Ann Zoellner and Alicia Ybarbo. They wrote the book Today’s Moms: Essentials for Surviving Baby’s First Year. is a new site offering parenting news, advice and tips from the show along with web-exclusive content. The community of moms already on TODAY will now have it’s own place to discuss, share and connect online. The site is heavily Walmart sponsored, which makes me wonder, why Walmart rather unites with MSNBC than utilizes and works with their own community, and well, their own moms, the Elevenmoms.

Full disclosure: I am working with Park City Mountain Resort, but I quit Walmart’s Elevenmoms two months ago. TODAY Show gave me a swag bag like all the other 100s of moms visiting the set on Monday.

  1. Sounds like LOADS of fun. I’ll be up in NYC in a few weeks and my So. FL blood is already shivering at the possibility of cold weather. Brrrrr….

    Oh, Katja! You’re the most jet-setting mom I know… and certainly the most down-to-earth.
