People Like Us {Movie Review}

No butterflies I was not on vacation yesterday, this post was actually supposed to go live Friday, but lately technology has not been my friend! (If anyone hears of a casting call for 'Pimp my Electronics' please let me know!)

On Tuesday, June 26th, The Moms, TV Personalities and media duo, Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein hosted a private Mamarazzi event, sponsored by MARTINI, to celebrate the release of People Like Us. The event kicked off with a lovely breakfast sponsored by Panera, and included MOMosas and MARTINI Sparkling Prosecco, followed by a screening and then a Questions and Answers session with the movie's star, Elizabeth Banks!

I will tell you The Moms 'Mamarazzi' events are always fantastic and never disappoint, I only wish that every single movie being released would hold screenings with them!

What's in a MOMosa? Glad you asked, here's the recipe:


2 parts chilled MARTINI Asti
1 part Orange Juice


Pour Orange Juice into a flute glass, top with Martini Asti and garnish with a strawberry (or the seasonal fruit of your choice)

(Please MOMosa responsibly, don't drive under the MOMosa influence, LOL, no seriously, call a cab)

Sam (Chris Pine) gets to know Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) the sister he has just discovered and her son Josh (Michael D’Addario) while trying to figure out how to tell her they are siblings in the DreamWorks drama/comedy People Like Us opening June 29, 2012.


English: "People Like Us"  tells the story of a struggling man who, after flying home to L.A. for the funeral of his estranged record-producer father, discovers that the will stipulates that he must deliver $150,000 in cash to a 30-year-old alcoholic sister he never knew existed, and her troubled 12-year-old son.

Spanish: "Gente como nosotros" narra la historia de un hombre de lucha que, después de volar a casa a los Ángeles para el funeral de su padre productor de registro, descubre que la voluntad estipula que debe entregar $150.000 en efectivo a una hermana alcohólica de 30 años de edad nunca supo que existía y su hijo de 12 años de edad conflictivo. 

Sam (Chris Pine) gets to know Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) the sister he has just discovered and her son Josh (Michael D’Addario) while trying to figure out how to tell her they are siblings in the DreamWorks drama/comedy People Like Us opening June 29, 2012

The movie opens with Sam (played by Chris Pine), a salesman who suddenly finds his job in jeopardy (and in need of monies to help save his job), having to find a way to save his job and then finding out his estranged Father died and he needs to fly back  home for his funeral. He gets back home with both his personal and professional life both very much in the up in the air. He is soon confronted with the challenging task of carrying out his father’s final wish – to deliver $150,000 to a single mom named Frankie (played by Elizabeth Banks) and her 11-year-old son, Josh (played by Michael Hall D’addario).

Michelle Pfeiffer stars as Lillian, recently widowed she is reconnecting with her son in the DreamWorks drama People Like Us opening June 29, 2012.

Michelle Pfeiffer plays Sam’s mother Lilllian, she struggles to cope with the loss of her (cheating) husband and the son who has been absent for so long returning home.

Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) has a heart-to-heart conversation with her son Josh (Michael D’Addario) in the DreamWorks drama/comedy People Like Us opening June 29, 2012.

Elizabeth Banks plays Frankie, struggling Single Mom, recovering addict, and Sam's long lost sister. Her pre-teen son Josh, played by Michael D'Addario is rebellious, getting in trouble in school and testing his boundaries.

What would you do if you needed the money, and $150,000 falls into your hands and your task is to give it someone else?

Not such an easy task!

After the screening which was sponsored by MARTINI and hosted by The Moms, Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein, Elizabeth Banks joined us for a question and answer session.

Here are a mix of photos from the Q&A:

When asked about single moms, Banks replied: “I know so many of these women who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.” Center: Actress Elizabeth Banks (photo credit:

When asked about Work/Life Balance, Banks replied: “You have 500 million things on your plate – never enough money, or enough time, or enough people to rely on, and you are always wondering how you are going to get it done.”

"They have a lot of friends but there will only be one of you"

My Take:

I hope "People Like Us" doesn't get lost in the summer 3D/Action and Blockbuster movies that we tend to associate with summer releases. It's as real as family life gets, and you are drawn into the character's struggles because it is so well acted.

The NEW Britax Baby Carrier, featuring the CarryLong System!

On my Press Junket to North Carolina in May, I got a chance to tour the BritaxUSA Headquarters (see some pics from my HQ tour HERE), and also got the chance to come home with a new Britax Baby Carrier! As you know, this butterfly is not yet a mom, but with a Mother Goose load gaggle of nieces, nephews and Godchildren at various ages I certainly feel like a parent! I've racked up too many 'cool Auntie' points to count, which is both good and bad because my name comes to mind first when it comes time for babysitting detail!

*Sister Butterfly* (names always hidden to protect the *innocent*), saw it and called 'Dibs' before I could even interject the carrier and the cute tote bag in came in were being bundled into the car! I can't say I mind because I called Dibs on the front seat for car rides all the time growing up and always got to it first and they had to put up with it because I'm the cutest, *ahem* I mean the youngest!

Before she even got home there was a voicemail from me reminding her that the price of taking the carrier meant I wanted her quotes for the review. I already knew she'd refuse me pictures, as you know my family has made it very clear they don't mind being the subject of stories as long as they are not named, and they also prohibited me pictures of any of the kids. (Out of fear of Butterfly Stalkers, LOL!)

So newest Nephew Butterfly has been enjoying trips to the Park, and the Zoo, and of course fun errands with mom in his new carrier. And Sis Butterfly told me the new carrier is a 5 out of a possible 5 butterflies. High praise indeed, and she has quite a few carriers under her belt (no pun intended).

She told me first and foremost that I must point out the fact that this carrier is PTPA endorsed, PTPA Media is the leading product awards program with the largest parent-testing community and seal of approval recognized worldwide. That means this carrier is 'Parent Tested and Parent Approved'. She researches all her purchases here, and her face definitely lit up when she saw the seal of approval on the box!

You can also see it in action by checking out the video below: 

Living in the 'City that never sleeps' I can tell you that Carriers make it so much easier to get around, especially for quick errands! It gets crowded here, and having the ability to get around the City faster and easier is certainly a plus. The idea of dealing with a full stroller on the subway (especially right now in the summer) is a bit daunting, having the carrier makes it so much easier! But it's knowing that your baby will be BOTH Safe AND Comfortable that makes it worth it.

{Not So} Wordless Wednesday: See how Appliance Envy + Patricia Heaton = @SamsungUSA

My name is Tracy and I have appliance envy. Serious Appliance Envy.

As a long time apartment dweller, I've been relegated to a ton of sub par appliances, many of which have long needed replacement, but that's certainly a story for another day. I recently attended a product demo for Samsung where various appliances were set up and press were given a walk through of each model and it is then and there that I learned I have 'Appliance Envy', while probably not as deadly as my summer 'travel itchies' disease, it's painful none the less. In a very brief time I learned I have been working way harder than I should in the kitchen and in other rooms. I had no idea just how far Household Appliances have come. But I now know just how far behind my particular kitchen is. Whether it's a future appliance overhaul or a complete move that fix remains to be seen (both sound equally appealing to me right about now!).


The new 32 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator has enough room to fit up to 32 bags of groceries!  

Samsung Electronics America, Inc., America’s fastest growing home appliance brand and award-winning innovator, take organization and efficiency in the home to a new level with the launch of its line of 2012 smart home appliances. Samsung is dedicated to using its technological expertise to create moments of wonder for today’s busy moms. Its line includes a Wi-Fi-enabled LCD refrigerator with apps that redefines organization in the kitchen, a smart phone-controlled washer/dryer for more freedom from the laundry room and a 5.9 cu. ft. large capacity oven that can be divided into two separate ovens for unparalleled meal preparation flexibility.

I'm not sure how they heard me when I was praying to the Twitter Gods about the ability to conduct and participate in Twitter Parties from my Refrigerator as Twitter Parties invariably make me hungry, and somehow they heard me. I wanted to stand and play at that refrigerator all day but unfortunately other people seemed to want to see it too, (How dare they? It's MINE all mine!) so I had to admire it, drool and move along!


“Make Your House Work” Panel Discussion, Left: Actress/Panel Moderator Patricia Heaton

Patricia Heaton, America’s favorite high capacity mom and the star of The Middle joined Samsung for the official unveiling of the new product line. In addition, Samsung is teaming up with Patricia and a team of top experts to launch “Make Your House Work,” an online program that will provide ideas, inspiration and recommendations for Samsung home appliances to keep your house operating at peak performance.

“Samsung really understands the challenges and needs of moms like me,” said Patricia Heaton

The panel which included Patricia Heaton on the very left (in the photo above the solo shot), and to Patricia's right Julie Morgenstern (aka 'The Queen of Putting People's Lives in Order and author of  'Organizing from the Inside Out'), Liz Pryor (Good Morning America's parenting 'Advice Guru'), and Christina Stanley-Salerno (Blogger for Rachel Ray Magazine Online).

"They have really cool ideas and are showing day-in and day-out how smart home appliances and technologies can make a big difference in your life.”  said Patricia Heaton

Samsung’s new product line for 2012 includes more connectivity, capacity and convenience than ever before to help moms stay efficient and organized.

A new national consumer survey of over 750 moms conducted by Samsung with Blue Suit Mom, an internationally recognized resource of work and family balance information for working mothers, highlights the challenges that moms face in organizing their lives and managing their households. For the vast majority of moms (85 percent), housework is a frustrating activity (not sure we actually needed a survey to determine that one right ladies?), and 76 percent never feel caught up on it. And although 69 percent recognize the important role that technology can play in making their lives more organized, 59 percent don’t know where to start to make housework easier.

The Samsung survey was conducted in May, 2012 via an online survey fielded to the following networks:, and An ending sample of over 750 Moms completed the online questionnaires. The demographics of the respondents varied in income level, marital status and household make-up.

Samsung Wi-Fi enabled WF457 laundry pair


  • The new Wi-Fi enabled WF457 laundry pair is making laundry smarter and less time-consuming by allowing consumers to start, stop and pause the machine from an app available on smart phones. It also reduces the normal cycle time by up to 15 minutes with new SpeedSpray™ technology by shooting water and dissolved detergent directly onto clothes so that cleaning begins faster.

  • The LCD Refrigerator with apps has been updated and refreshed with the Grocery Manager app, which tracks the expiration time of perishables. This new addition is a direct response to consumer feedback for more efficient ways to control the waste and cost of spoiled food.


  • The new 32 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator is the largest in its class and has enough room to fit up to 32 bags of groceries. That means fewer trips to the market for mom.

  • The 4.5 cu. ft. king-size capacity High Efficiency Top Load Washer does 2.4 laundry baskets (or 32 bath towels) full of clothes at a time, reducing the amount of time spent in the laundry room. Mom can also rest assured that her clothes are being gently washed by foam and water jets.

Samsung's Flex Duo Oven and Gas Range


  • The Flex Duo Oven can split from one large capacity oven into two separate 2.7 cu. ft. and 3.0 cu. ft. ovens, giving cooks the option and convenience of preparing two dishes at two different temperatures.

  • The new Induction Range with Flex Cookzone™ makes cooking easier with a flexible cooking surface which accommodates pots or griddles that would not fit on a standard-sized heating surface. It also features a boil sensor which helps eliminate boil-overs by alerting the user or automatically reducing heat to a pre-set level.

  • The company’s new canister vacuums, available in the U.S. for the first time, come in three models – Champagne, Electric Blue and Black colors – and feature reduced noise levels and innovative ergonomic design, allowing busy moms to vacuum anytime of day or night even when the room is filled with family members watching TV or snoozing on the couch.

To learn more about Samsung Home Appliances and “Make Your House Work,” visit the Samsung Home Appliance Facebook page. Beginning June 21, fans will have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts and to enter a series of fun challenges in parenting, cooking and home organization to win prizes, like weekly housecleaning for a month, professional window washing, or a new vacuum. Now that my dear butterflies, is a total win/win! (Readers you may also want to tell them on their facebook page that you saw them featured here, and would love to see an appliance giveaway!)
So Butterflies, What do you think of these futuristic appliances? Ready to have your home resemble the Jetsons? I for one would also love a Rosie Robot!

Disney/Pixar's Brave {Movie Review}

@ Disney Pixar's Brave

Movie Synopsis:

English: Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney•Pixar’s “Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources—including her mischievous triplet brothers—to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor. Opens on June 22, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

@ Disney Pixar's Brave

Spanish/Espanol: En la película, Kelly Macdonald presta su voz a Merida, una habilidosa arquera hija del Rey Fergus (voz de Billy Connolly) y de la Reina Elinor (voz de Emma Thompson). Merida está decidida a labrarse su propio camino en la vida y desafía una costumbre milenaria y sagrada de los ruidosos señores de la tierra: el enorme Lord MacGuffin (voz de Kevin McKidd), el huraño Lord Macintosh (voz de Craig Ferguson) y el cascarrabias Lord Dingwall (voz de Robbie Coltrane). Sin quererlo ni beberlo, las decisiones de Merida desencadenan el caos y la furia en el reino. Y cuando acude a una excéntrica y sabia anciana (voz de Julie Walters) en busca de ayuda, se le concede un desventurado deseo. El enorme peligro que corre obligará a Merida a descubrir el significado del auténtico valor: tendrá que deshacer una terrible maldición antes de que sea demasiado tarde.

Brave - Film Clip "Wisps"

My Take:

I do enjoy the Scottish accent, and the greens of the forests and the craggy peaks did set off a case of wanderlust (then again what doesn't right?), what I love most about this movie is that the heroine is strong, independent, persistent and resourceful. She refuses to dance to the beat of someone else's drum and is determined to find her own way in life. Does she stumble along the way? Sure she does. We all do. But she learns that even if it's hard, even when the people you love don't necessarily agree with you, that you can be your own person, and experience life on your own terms.

Brave is rated PG and is definitely family safe!

I love comedians Billy Connolly and Craig Ferguson who both voice characters in the film, and as you all know I love all things Atlantic City so I recognized Kelly Macdonald who voices the heroine Merida in Brave immediately as she plays Margaret Schroeder in the HBO Television Series Boardwalk Empire.

How do you Apple Mango Tango?

About a month before the official start of summer, I get a very rare disease, which I've officially named the 'travel itchies'. Sadly, I get this every year, and doctors can't seem to cure it and the only thing that works is getting away! The hectic pace of city living can be extremely tiring and the only thing that seems to center me is time at the beach. This time spent near the Ocean gives summer a scent for me, sometimes many scents combined. Once one of those scents hits my senses, I'm ready to pack my bags and go!

Being near the ocean or at the beach whether it's local or abroad brings up so many sensory memories for me, like eating fresh fruit, or enjoying a tropical beverage sometimes straight from a pineapple or a coconut and those smells are the ones that imprint the memory of favorite summer vacations straight to my heart!

One of my favorite vacation scent memories was a summer I spent in Puerto Rico. A friend who owns a large farm brought along fresh Mangos to the beach. They were ripe and fresh and just bursting with sweetness and scent. Anytime I smell Mango it takes me right back to that happy day. I can see myself sitting on the beach with Mango juice dripping down my arm, the sun warm on my back and the hint of a breeze.

But unfortunately a beach vacation isn't in my immediate future as things have been way to busy, but my senses were recently tickled by a great scent that I just had to share! Even the best travel goddess has to do Laundry sometime, and if you want to take a slice of vacation happiness and bring it home with you then I would highly recommend Gain Joyful Expressions Apple Mango Tango Laundry Detergent. I call it 'Vacation in a Bottle'.

What I call 'Vaction in a Bottle,' Gain calls Joyful Expressions Laundry Detergent, and they describe it as "A Superior and Uplifting Scent Experience" and I couldn't agree more. I am definitely going to go back and try out the other scents, especially 'Gain Butterfly Kiss' but for some reason after smelling the joyful expressions line, the Apple Mango Tango resonated with me most. It starts with that crisp smell of Apple, coupled with the sweetness of Mango and it just instantly takes me back to my favorite summer beach memory.

Not only does it smell great, but I like the way it cleans and how long the smell actually 'holds' to your clothes and lingers in the air!

Gain Apple Mango Tango Laundry Detergent

I put it to work immediately on a tough load, my favorite King Size Egyptian Cotton Blanket, which it left soft and smelling great!

Gain Apple Mango Tango Laundry Detergent after cleaning my King Sized Egyptian Cotton Blanket!

It was equally fantastic on clothes, leaving them pleasantly scented and soft to the touch! The only way I could be happier with it, is if it included a Merry Maid to do the Laundry for me! (LOL)
