An upbeat Alyson Hannigan takes her beverage to go Thursday while taking 4-month-old daughter Satyana on a stroll through Santa Monica, Calif.

The How I Met Your Mother actress was back at work this week, baby and husband Alexis Denisof in tow — the show has set up a nursery for the new mom.

Next up? Preparing for the Emmy Awards next month. Alyson, 35, has narrowed her dress choices down to two, and will be making sure they cover all they need to.

“This year, [my goal] is to make sure the boobs stay in,” she jokes. “I have boobs now! They’re my new accessory. I want to make sure they stay in and they stay dry.”
