My kids were happy to miss a day of school for the long awaited movie Epic. I told them Pit Bull who plays (Bufo the frog) would be attending as well and they were excited. This was an #epicmamarazzi screening thanks to @themoms. The screening took place Wednesday May 22nd at the Empire on west 42nd street at 11:00 a.m.
A lot of parents said they wish their kids would get to school on time the way they got to the screening early. My kids met up with their friends and were treated to free concession snacks and pictures with none other than Pit Bull and an autograph. He is very nice and wanted to give autographs for the kids and take pictures with almost everyone even though he was in a rush to another engagement. He said he was raised in a single parent home by his mom and encouraged the kids to listen to their moms and go for your dream.
Epic is a great 3D animation movie for the whole family to see and my family and I are definitely on the Leaf Men side. This ongoing battle in the forest between good and evil makes you want to put on your gear and protect the forest. Beyonce, Steven Tyler, and Amanda Seyfried were also part of the cast. I have to say I was in tears for a few parts but other than that it was great and funny, especially the slugs who had us laughing throughout the movie. All the characters were great!!
We had a great time and will see it again with our cousins.
Enjoy the pictures!

The day had finally come for my daughter and I to sink our teeth into a @HarlemShake burger, fries, and milkshake of course. Today was the soft opening and we were glad to be on the list. We had a 12:00 RSVP and got there about 10 minutes early where I was able to take pictures of the outside which looked very inviting. Once inside I realized this wasn’t your typical manufactured fast food joint. This is that diner that you want to come back to with your family, friends, and co-workers. There are plenty of stools at the counter, or at the window if you want an outside view. There are booths and tables and I also found out that there will be even more tables when they open up the gigantic doors and have sidewalk dining. That will be great for the summer!!
I ordered a mini cheeseburger for my daughter with fries of course and a vanilla shake. I had a cheeseburger with everything and shared fries with my daughter. Can I just say our plates were completely empty. My daughter said “I want more burgers and fries”. Everything was fresh. The fries seasoned just right, the milkshake not too thick or sugary which was perfect for my daughter. Juicy burgers from fresh ground delivered everyday. No frozen patties ever!! Prices are reasonable and worth every penny.
There is music and I was singing every song that came on because it was old school. My daughter said “you know that song mommy?” I smiled and said yes, then continued jamming.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming and made sure we were happy and satisfied with our food and that we would be returning. You don’t have to ask me twice. My family and I will return.
There was still work being done but despite all of that we enjoyed ourselves and we were very happy when we found out we were the first customers in Harlem Shake to walk through the door, order food, and eat. We felt like celebrities. Maybe our picture will be on the wall next to the celebrities. Hint, hint.
Harlem Shake is here to stay and I’m glad they aren’t too far from me. The neighborhood needed this and I encourage everyone to go visit and get your shake on and tell them I sent you!! Enjoy the pictures!!
There’s nothing like walking in @HenriBendel and wanting everything in there. The colors of the scarves, jewelry, handbags, makeup. Everything is just beautiful. I got the privilege to not only shop but meet Elisabeth Rohm in person for a book signing of her new book Baby Steps “Having the Child I Always Wanted”. She talked about going through menopause at an early age and the struggle with infertility. She is very sweet and can’t wait to read her book. I feel like we are girlfriends. We were giving each other high fives, hugs, and smooches. She also said she wanted to borrow my earrings that I was purchasing from Henri Bendel with my 20% off coupon.I told her “Of course you can”. She said “that’s what girlfriends do, they go in each others closets and borrow things”. I’m cool with that. I would love to borrow from her closet.
Her book is very inspiring to women who are having difficulty having children, and infertility issues. I enjoyed this day thanks to @themoms.
I also donated diapers and wipes to @loverecycled founded by Jessica Seinfeld to provide critical items to America’s vulnerable families. I loved doing that.
Happy Mother’s Day to the mommies!!! Today I know some of you want the day to relax minus the kids but I on the other don’t mind having the kids around. Maybe it’s because they are 5 and older but trust me I get a lot of alone time when they are in school. I hope you mommies get what you want today whether it’s a day at the spa, the whole house to yourself singing and dancing like Tom Cruise, or just waking up to a big breakfast and homemade cards from your kids. Whatever you get enjoy it and cherish these moments. Don’t worry father’s your day is coming up!! Have a great day!!!
