Mother’s Day #MotherDayMovie

Mother’s Day #MotherDayMovie 

Mother’s Day arrived a bit earlier this year for some of us moms who were treated to an advance screening of Mother’s Day #MothersDayMovie.  From the director of PRETTY WOMAN and VALENTINE’S DAY comes Garry Marshall’s latest film celebrating mothers on their special day. MOTHER’S DAY, starring Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Jason Sudeikis and Julia Roberts. 

I enjoy a movie that brings out different emotions as well as a movie  I can relate to. Mother’s Day will definitely did just that , I laughed, cried, laughed so hard I cried and I will admit I even snorted a few times!  

Attending the screening as a guest blogger of The Moms, and  Serta  we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived.  Lounging in Serta’s newest and most comfortable beds, I wished we could watch the movie right there. I immediately texted my husband and said we are going bed shopping soon! Chef Bailey was on hand with morning treats . Our gracious hosts greeted us and awaited the arrival of producer Gary Marshall and Star Kate Hudson. Starting the morning off with Gary and Kate got us all in the right mind frame to enjoy the film. I often forget that Kate is Goldie Hawn’s daughter but once she speaks it comes back to me. It was very interesting hearing Kate chat about her mom and reminiscing about her favorite movies growing up, Overboard and Private Benjamin. Immediately I was thinking of my mom and how we would watch them and laugh together.
