Story Pirates, The Lorax, and Salma Hayek

Story pirates perform in westwood

So many things happened last week, including the PS Vita MomsLA event, but the most exciting was seeing my son’s story acted out by the Story Pirates at the Geffen Annex in Westwood. I wrote about it on MomsLA, but here is the video.

That was Saturday. On Sunday the family and I went to the premiere of “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax,” which I also wrote about on MomsLA. Here’s my picture with The Lorax himself, Danny DeVito.

Then on Friday, the fun continued with a press conference at the L’ Ermitage in Beverly Hills where Got Milk? announced its latest spokesperson, Salma Hayek. The video in the MomsLA post includes the two new Got Milk? commercials, both of which are very cute.

Ellie Krieger was also there and she gave us a copy of her delicious-looking cookbook “Comfort Food Fix: Feel Good Favorites Made Healthy.” She was kind enough to talk about Got Milk?’s The Breakfast Project on video and also gave the group of bloggers great tips for making a healthy breakfast.
