SUPER SPROWTZ SUPERHEROES VEGGIELICIOUS TOUR!!

29 Jan

Over the weekend I took my kids to see America’s favorite vegetable superheroes none other than the Super Sprowtz. They were on a veggielicious tour and were at Century 21 on Cortlandt Street in lower Manhattan. I was excited to see the guest celebrities that support healthy eating for kids. Obesity in children continues to rise and if parents just take the time to introduce fresh vegetables and less fried and fast foods our children won’t have to deal with bullying, diabetes, and other health issues. Some of the celebrities committed to building a healthy future for our current and next generation include : Shaquille O ‘ Neal Maxwell Daryl Strawberry Chef Todd English Chef Justin Warner Chef G. Garvin, and Selita Ebanks. They were all in attendance. There were a lot of kids who showed up that wanted learn about the different types of veggies and why they’re good for you. To help the kids learn the best way they could were the Super Sprowtz. They were veggie puppets who danced, singed and had the kids on their toes. There were so any veggies I could only remember 3 names because those are the puppets we took home. Suzy Sweetpea, Brian Broccoli, and Colby Carrot. There was also a bilingual band who had the kids learning spanish as well. They had carrots as snacks and a few giveaways. Shaquille, Maxwell, and Daryl Strawberry were dancing as well. My kids loved the broccoli song. I even sing it because I love my broccoli. Speaking of broccoli at the end of the show they announced that we could have the fresh vegetables they have on display. It was so many parents grabbing fresh broccoli or carrots. I grabbed broccoli of course and steamed it that night for dinner. Everyone loved it and it tastes so much better than frozen. It kind of has a sweet taste to it. I will never use frozen ever again! My oldest son even could tell the difference. He enjoyed it very much! Before I went to this event I had never heard of the Super Sprowtz but now that I know they’re mission is to get kids excited about eating more vegetables and making healthier choices I will let my kids see their show on NYC TV, Saturday at 8 am, then Wednesday and Friday at 11:30. I guess I will DVR it because they are in school except for Saturday. What a great way to spend a Sunday with the kids!!

MY FUN DAY AT ANDERSON LIVE AND AT SCREENING OF THIS IS 40. @ThisIs40 @AndersonLive #AndersonLive #AndersonLiveTweetSeats

21 Dec

I was invited to Anderson Live talk show here in Manhattan Thursday, December 20, 2012 to be part of 40 year old audience members who were either turning 40 or already 40. I turned 40 in October yeah hard to believe but I was excited to attend and took my sister along for the day.

It started with a special screening of the comedy film “This Is 40″which was shown at the Loews Theater on 68th & Broadway at 8:00 a.m. Whoever attended the screening got priority to get into the talk show ahead of everyone else.

Some people said they couldn’t get up that early for a movie, or they had to take the kids to school. I told them they missed an amazing comedy and I couldn’t stop laughing.

“This Is 40” produced and written by John Apatow is the spinoff to the sequel Knocked Up (2007).

This film follows the lives of middle aged married couple Pete and Debbie as they face challenges of their lives. They are dealing with turning 40, their jobs, and children Sadie and Charlotte who add stress to their relationship.

It is R rated so if you’re not into foul language, and sexual content then you know what to do. I on the other hand enjoyed this film very much.

The cast includes :
Paul Rudd as Peter owner of record label
Leslie Mann as Debbie shop owner
Maude Apatow as Sadie 13 yr old daughter
Iris Apatow as Charlotte 8 yr old daughter John Lithgow as Oliver (Debbie’s 65 yr old father)
Albert Brooks as Larry (Pete’s father)
Megan Fox as Desi (one of Debbie’s employee)
Charlyne Yi as Jodi (one of Debbie’s employee)

The other cast members are very funny as well. Charlyne Yi who played Jodi is crazy and played her character very well. She’s funny.
Everyone is mesmerized with Megan Fox character. I wonder why. Lol. You will see. Everyone that was in the movie did a terrific job and I couldn’t see anyone else playing their parts. Of course John knew what he was doing when he picked his wife Leslie and two daughters Maude, and Iris to play the daughters in the film.

I was excited to get to the studio and see Anderson of course but also some of the cast in person.
John Apatow, Leslie Mann,  and Paul Rudd, were on the show. Leslie was Anderson’s co host. John and Leslie’s two daughters who were stars in the film were in the audience as well.

The movie comes out today Friday December 21, 2012. Yes the world stayed around for you to see this movie, and the taping of Anderson Live comes on today at 12:00 on Fox5. They might show me in the audience.

Since this was Anderson’s last show for the season we were given $100 Visa cards, snow for the kids from Misfit toys, and a CD.

My sister and I had a great day and I recommend seeing this movie and requesting tickets to Anderson Live next season.
Enjoy the pictures below from movie theater and talk show.

JCPenney #12DaysofGiving Tour in Bryant Park with John Legend

28 Nov

Kicking off #jcp12days with @johnlegend entertaining #BryantPark with Christmas carols. http://t.co/5xPWcohG

I went to Bryant Park to see John Legend do some singing for JCPenney 12 days of giving tour on Tuesday, November 27th. He sanged a few of his songs and a few carols. There were free ice skating, and free hot chocolate when you got cold from the rain and snow. I wasn’t able to get good pictures of John Legend but I was able to get a video of him singing one of his songs. Also, I took pictures of Citi Pond and the ice skaters. Standing right next to me was LaLa, Carmelo Anthony wife so I took pictures of her as well. I also met a skater who was willing to teach me how to ice skate and carry me on her back so I wouldn’t fall. How sweet but she was tiny. She didn’t know what she would have gotten herself into. Lol. Now, I can roller skate but ice skating, nope. Enjoy the pictures!!
If the video didn’t come out I’ll try again later.

Turkey Giveaway in Harlem @Ricardosnyc

23 Nov

I net Tyson Beckford model, actor, tv host in Harlem @Ricardosnyc giving out turkeys to the community. He was very nice and went out his way by staying past the time the event was supposed to end make sure everyone had a free bird.

There were tickets issued from local churches which you needed to receive a turkey but when those people stopped coming they started handing out turkeys to those without tickets and to anyone passing by.

The event went smooth and no one complaining, arguing, or fighting.
Tyson was nice enough to pose for pictures with a lot of people and you know I had to get a picture.

Meeting Celebrities

8 Nov

I’ve met quite a few celebrities in the past but weren’t able to save the pictures I took with them. However, I was able to meet a few more this year and they were all very nice and didn’t mind taking pictures with their fans.

I meet the majority of celebrities at movie screenings, red carpet events, or fashion shows. Sometimes I just snap a picture or if I’m close enough to ask for a picture I make sure to jump at the chance.

Any celebrity is fine as long as their cool. If I see they look like they don’t want to be bothered then I leave them alone. I met Queen Latifah one time in the ladies bathroom but I wasn’t gonna dare ask her for a picture in there so I just smiled and left her alone to take care of her business.

Just like you and I we have good days, and bad days. Sometimes we smile, sometimes we don’t.

I have a few pictures of some celebrities below.
