a yummy afternoon

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.

I feel like I indulge when I read your blog! I love hearing about life in the big city. I've been away for years (and by city, I mean my hometown of Montreal) and miss it sometimes, but like your profile said, these moments with family and friends, well to quote the commercial, "priceless."

Now I'm hungry and it's nearly midnight. Thanks a lot!! I will be sending you the bill for my tummy tuck ;)

Suzanne, thanks! How was the winery trip with your husband last weekend? So envious! I may have to get some tips from you about Montreal sometime... we've thought about going there for a visit- looks beautiful! TuTu's Bliss... sorry about that. :( Tuesday was sensory overload and I just had to write about it! Your tutu creations are so darn cute.
