Busy Philipps is one busy mama! Nothing seems to slow her down — not her 4-year-old daughter Birdie, the new baby on the way, or working on her hit show Cougar Town, which is in its fourth season, and just premiered in January on TBS.

Busy is really excited about this season and told me, “The gang is back! We had such a blast filming this year and were so excited by the TBS pickup! There’s more games, wine, songs and relationship hilarity. Jules and Grayson are figuring out what being married is all about. Laurie is trying to figure out how she feels about Travis and her amazing boyfriend Wade.”

What you may or may not know, is that Busy Philipps is the “Hostess with the” and loves to entertain!

I had the chance to get some great tips from Busy on how to throw the best Os Mostess car Party, how her pregnancy is going and what Birdie thinks of the baby to be!

    What are your top five Oscar party tips: What to do with the kids?
    Do your own voting! Whomever wins at the end of the night, gets to take home a special little present.
    Have an arts and crafts project for the kids — like decorating "movie star" sunglasses that you get at a craft store. Then have the kids dress up and do a red carpet for the grownups.

    Food!
    Order pizza to make it easy on yourself. Just be sure to put your order in EARLY, like 2 p.m. and specify delivery time so there you won't have to wait.
    Set up a popcorn and candy bar — You can pop a big batch ahead of time and then guests can add their favorite toppings! I like to provide a variety ranging from savory to sweet, like garlic salt or chocolate chips.

    Drinks!
    Serve fun cocktails. I love Bacardi classic light cocktails because they are a delicious, low-calorie option for my guests.

    How do you do it, being so busy?
    Juggling work, being a hands-on mom, etc.? You do your best with the knowledge that somedays are better than others. And I mostly go to bed early.

    How is Birdie about the baby coming?
    She is really excited. She might feel differently when the baby is actually HERE but for now, she's really sweet and excited.

  • Is this pregnancy different than your first? 6 of 6
    Is this pregnancy different than your first?
    Yes and everyone is telling me that it's not unusual. I also wasn't working much when I was pregnant with Birdie so it was just a generally more relaxing time for me. But I feel fairly good now!
