Previously I attended the Moms of ABC Reception/Mixer and so I was excited to have a few cocktails and get to know the Moms of ABC Family. Sometimes it’s even better than an actual one on one interview. Your in a relaxed atmosphere and can just get to know these amazing actresses. Here’s who all stopped by:
Marlee Matlin (“Switched at Birth”)
The lovely Marlee Matlin was the first Mom to arrive. I’ve been a fan for YEARS so I was a little bit excited about meeting her. I went and grabbed a rum and coke and sat down with her and immediately was set at ease by her. She’s extremely funny AND straight with you from the get go. She has kids herself so half the time we were chatting about just the things we go through as mothers. Her kids are a bit older than mine so I was just lapping up her advice. I dread the day when my kids have to get driver permits! We even chatted about public schools vs. private schools. It’s so nice to hear celebrities talk about issues that you are experiencing and can relate with. A lot of times people forget that they have regular lives just like us. She also chatted some about her role in Switched At Birth.
Constance Marie (“Switched at Birth”)
This chick is a HOOT! She was running late to the event due to traffic, but she hops on twitter and starts tweeting us while she’s stopped at a light. She really is a “twitter Junkie” just like I am. Make sure you are following her: https://twitter.com/goconstance Once she arrived she just jumped right in and started taking selfies with us and just had girl talk.

Laura Leighton (“Pretty Little Liars”)
First things first: Yes….Laura Leighton is just as beautiful in person as she is on screen. I’ve been a fan since she was on Melrose. Speaking of Melrose she told a funny story about how when the new version came out there were billboard around town. She happened to be driving around town and her kids go, “MOM why are you on that sign that says The B is Back?” Her kids don’t watch her shows much so it was hilarious. My kids get embarrassed about things I do on facebook I can’t imagine if they saw me on a billboard. Family is extremely important to her and you could tell.
Holly Marie Combs (“Pretty Little Liars”)
Let me tell you…This woman has killer style. She walked in with her shades on, killer jewlery, shoes, and an outfit that was rocking it. Then her and Laura were joking over whose kids were the bad kids on the show. You could tell they enjoy working together. Then she asked us what made us become a blogger.

It’s always nice when you can have these type of basically girl chats with other busy moms. They may be on TV screens every week while I’m just here on the internet, but we have a lot in common. Check out some fun photos from the event below:
