GOOD TIMES INDEED WHEN THERE’S A #MAMARAZZI EVENT WITH @themoms

15 May

Denise and Melissa of @themoms have been keeping my kids and I very busy this year with soooo many events. Some I couldn’t attend but the ones I could I am so glad I did. We always have an amazing time and I get to see all my friends, and so do my kids, and we just relax for a few hours. It is truly a blessing for the things that have come my way because of being a blogger. I take my job very serious and appreciate everything and everyone.

That morning before the Amazing Spider-Man Red Carpet we attended Denise and Melissa had a book signing and luncheon with the fabulous Robin Roberts news anchor from “Good Morning America.” I took my mother in law along with me so she could meet Robin and enjoy a good steak at the famous NYY Steak restaurant.
“Everybody’s got something.” That’s what Robin Roberts’ mother used to tell her. For the “Good Morning America” co-anchor, her something was myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder. Roberts, a breast cancer survivor, underwent a bone marrow transplant in September 2012 to treat MDS, receiving donor cells from her sister, Sally Ann, and candidly documented her journey.
Now, in a new memoir, “Everybody’s Got Something,” out today, she opens up her battle and the incredible support system — including her family, and friends, who helped her get through it all, from the shock of the diagnosis through each milestone in her recovery.
I enjoyed the luncheon and I am currently reading her book. Her book is currently available for purchase in your major bookstores or online. #robertsmamarazzi

We also attended The Legends of Oz Dorothy’s Return screening about 5 days later and had a Q&A with Megan Hilty at the Park Avenue Screening Room. My kids and I enjoyed this movie very much. I think all the characters were fun. Dorothy going back to Kansas to help out her friends. Who would ever imagine? The kids had treats from Baked by Melissa and my son even managed to snag a selfie with Megan Hilty. Megan Hilty’s character in the movie is the “China Princess.” She did a great job. This movie was fun. In theaters now!! #LegendsOfOz

The next event was held at Dylan’s Candy Bar for the Happy Baby Foundation Charity event with shoe designer Yosi Samra

The Happy Baby Foundation is dedicated to identifying and investing in the most promising research for this genetic disorder. Most exciting is that the cross-lateral results of Prader- Willi Syndrome research has opened doors to treatments for not only those suffering with PWS, but other debilitating conditions as well. Such side effects as lack of hunger control and associated obesity, delayed development and motor skills, emotional issues, and chemical imbalances can be treated allowing these beautiful children to fulfill their potential and to enjoy a happy life.

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a genetic disorder that occurs in approximately one out of every 15,000 births. PWS affects males and females with equal frequency and affects all races and ethnicities. PWS is recognized as the most common genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity. Check out http://www.happyfoundation.org for more info.

Guests attending were able to get their hair braided at the John Barrett Braid Bar, snag a cool temporary tattoo from Tattly and grab some goodies from Egg by Susan Lazar. Enjoyed lite bites and beverages from Freshmade NYC and Arizona Beverage Company. Also my daughter received a free pair of Yosi Samra shoes and I purchased a pair for myself. It was all for a good cause. Had a great time!!
