I know you are all wondering how my Valentine’s date with Dave on the Queen Mary was. In a word: AWESOME!
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, Really? Yes, really!
I was invited to attend the MIXIM Greek Yogurt launch at the Queen Mary for Valentine’s Day last Friday night. It sounded like a lot of fun and Dave and I were really excited to go. In fact, we were so determined to spend a fun Valentine’s night doing something different, we suffered through 2 1/2 hours in get-out-of-town President’s Day traffic to get there. Okay, I admit – that, not so awesome. But once we got there – so fun!
Once we arrived at the Queen Mary we checked in and were escorted to the VIP lounge where we immediately headed to the bar. One big
sip gulp of a vodka cranberry, and our traffic stress immediately drained away.
I’ll tell you what, Ehrmann, the makers of MIXIM Greek yogurt, sure do know how to throw a party. The VIP lounge not only had free cocktails, but pass around trays of fabulous hors d’oeuvres, a yummy pasta bar, and to-die-for cupcakes. (And I don’t even usually like cupcakes.) And of course all the yogurt your little heart desired.
In case you haven’t noticed, this is a sponsored post, so a little about the yogurt…
I am a HUGE Greek yogurt fan. I eat it every day. (And I mean every day.) The thing is, I usually am not a huge fan of fat free Greek yogurt. It tastes a bit chalky to me so I wasn’t sure I would really enjoy MIXIM very much. Oh how wrong I was! MIXIM fat free yogurt get in my belly now! MIXIM Greek yogurt comes in an adorable heart-shaped container that has a crunchy mix-in and a fruit or honey mix-in. They have six flavors – all of them were delicious, but my favorite was the dark chocolate/cherry. YUM!
Oh, and one very, very important thing to note: MIXIM does not use rBST. I do not eat or endorse products with rBST. (With a teenage daughter and a never-mind-it’s-none-of-your-business-mid-life-change me, we have all the hormones we need in our household thankyouverymuch!)
Okay, back to the party…
After Dave and I ate our body weight in pasta and fat-free, rBST-free, creamy delicious yogurt (and perhaps had another drink or two) we decided to join the party outside.
Before we knew it, it was time for the Guinness Book of World Records attempt of the most couples simultaneously feeding each other.
What? Can’t see me? Okay, I will totally humiliate myself by posting the worst picture of me ever. (Oh the things I will do for this blog!)
That’s right! We made the record. We were 2 of the 436 individuals simultaneously spoon feeding each other.
After the attempt at the world record was deemed a success, Christian Ehrmann, owner of Ehrmann USA presented a $20,000 check to The Children’s Heart Foundation during the celebration.
Then the Journey tribute band Don’t Stop Believin’ rocked the house. (Or rather rocked the boat!) And if that wasn’t enough, the night ended with a spectacular fireworks display.
But wait, there’s more! No, not of my Valentine’s night (and if there was, that part is private!) – there’s more MIXIM LOVE, but this time, for you!
