Mamarazzi Event with Alison Sweeney & Valspar Paint

I was finally able to meet The Biggest Loser host and Days of our Lives' actress Alison Sweeney in person at a recent Mamarazzi event by The Moms. I write 'finally,' because I've actually interviewed her previously, but only over the phone (post here) and I heard her once speak at The Women's Conference.  Ali was there celebrating her new novel "Scared Scriptless."

It was a rainy chilly day in the City and I particularly admired her black sweater that was all business in the front with a party of see-through lace in the back. Very sophisticated, yet sexy. I asked her where she got it and she said at Nordstrom by Theory. Sadly with the change in seasons I couldn't find it online for purchase anymore.

She was very sweet in real life and I particularly liked that she also has the habit of quoting random movie lines like I do. Here we are posing together:
The get together was sponsored by Valspar Paint at ACE Hardware, which had bright color paint swatches scattered around the room, which actually doubled as a fun decoration. I nabbed a few fun blues and greens for inspiration when painting our new home (more to come on that news in a future post).

I also learned that Valspar provides a guarantee and if you don't like how the color looks on your wall you can return it for a new can of paint. Wow, love that! Especially since colors always look different on your walls than it does on a swatch.


  1. How cool to meet Alison Sweeney. I just used this paint in my nursery and it turned out awesome very happy with it.

  2. I love Alison and The Biggest Loser! What a fun event

  3. How cool to meet her. I watched Days of our lives for yrs with her. I used this paint and loved in daughter's rm.

  4. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me. I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!
