I had a delightful afternoon yesterday... and, let me just say, I don't use the word "delightful" often. If ever. I took a half day at work in order to attend a few events I was invited to as a blogger. I plan on writing a separate post about each, but here are the highlights:
Ragu's "Recipe for a Good Start" Program:
I was on hand for this new initiative from Ragu. Their goal is to help bring families together through cooking and re-connecting around the kitchen table. Molly Ringwald is the spokesperson for this program, and she spoke briefly about her own family's dinnertime routine (side note: I tried not to have flashes of "Pretty in Pink" while she spoke but it was tough. She's a cute lady and after just seeing her at the Oscars, I have to say she looks much better in person). Fab gift bag. More on this later and photos to come.
iVillage & Dove Chocolate's "Afternoon of Indulgent Moments":
Chocolate. Wine. Hand massage and makeup application for Nanny A. QT for me and Baby S in the middle of the afternoon. Delightful- 'nuff said!
Modern Moms Editor Showcase:
1 ballroom at the Marriot Marquis. 30+ baby & child-related vendors. I walked around munching on kiddie snacks, meeting product representatives and making connections. There were a few products in particular that stood out to me, which I will write about in more detail in future posts. I was honored to have been invited.
