Our trip to NYC went fabulous. Musings of a Housewife and I talked non-stop on our train ride from Philly and luckily us suburban mommies made it to NYC with no snafus. We loved the premiere of “The Closer” which hits on July 14th – you soooo should watch it. Just getting out of the burbs and hitting an event in NYC was thrilling for Jo-Lynne and I. Got to meet lots of fabulous Mommy bloggers and Mom Entrepreneurs – like Jen Singer, Nina, the founder of one of Classy Mommy’s favorite products, the Mom Agenda, and Beth Feldmen, founder of RoleMommy.com and organizer of this premiere for Moms. I even got to do a quick interview for Mom Logic so we’ll see if I end up making it on the air although I got kinda nervous and think I flubbed it up.
Saw my first ever chocolate fountain too. Swiped a strawberry through and it was divine! I am obsessed with dark chocolate so the aroma of this fountain was incredible in the showroom. Didn’t know these things really existed!
Even cooler was seeing Kyra Sedgewick for a quick 15 min Q&A. Total She truly was in and out of our event in a flash. Total Movie Star. Totally glam. Ultra skinny like you can’t believe in person. Also thought she was totally “real”, honest and likeable as far as the Q&A with us Mamas went. Talked about her marriage being fabulous (20+ years to Kevin Bacon almost unheard of in Hollywood circles) and when asked Why? she felt she truly was just LUCKY and that they had similar parenting styles and that she of course still if fortunate enough to totally LUST after her husband (if only we were all married to Kevin Bacon huh?) Even takled about the pressures of being thin and losing babyweight and she said she totally breastfed which helped enormously. (I can personally relate to that as I attribute breastfeeding to losing my baby weight) And she was honest in saying that in the past she too was terribly caught up in the Hollywood pressures of being thin and that she had a stage where she was an obsessive exerciser.
I took some Flip Videos of her during the Q&A but it looks like it is hard to hear her (it was totally normal in person!). So I’m not sure how they’ll sound to you – they aren’t great! Here is one on Kyra talking about being a working Mom (only 1 minute and 2 seconds!)
And all our obsessing over outfits was for naught. Really people were anything and everything and we fit in just fine in the above outfits we put together after various trips dragging our kids to the outlets and malls. And of course I ended up wearing something I already owned with the exception of a new purse, aqua beads and earrings.
Huge thank you to Beth from Rolemommy.com for including us in your special event. We loved it and were thrilled to travel up from Philly to the Big Apple.
