You may not know it but I am obsessed with Jill  Kargman and the Bravo television show Odd Mom Out. When it debuted last year I immediately saw myself in Jill, if I lived on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  Watching her weekly antics made it easy to declare Jill my “spirit animal”.

When I heard she was releasing a book entitled, ‘Sprinkle Gitter On My Grave‘ I immediately thought, “I need to cop that shit”. Cause if there was a book that needed to be apart of my mommy humor collection this was it! My follow up thought was, I hope my ass gets invited to a book release event.

Guess what? I did! And it was great!! I mean its Jill there would be no  way this event would be anything less. It was hosted by Diva Moms and Armitron watches, and took place at the Armitron showroom in New York City.

I don’t know what I expected when the doors opened, but I know I wasn’t expecting to see the crowd that was there.  I couldn’t even get off the elevator and it took me 15 minutes to make it out of the lobby area. It was amazing to see so many women from all walks of life come out to show their love.  In turn, the red carpet was rolled out for us as Armitron gave out complimentary  watches to all the guests.

The holiday’s are coming up and this is a must buy for all your odd mom out friends!

Check out my Snapchat Video to get a glimpse of how it all went down.

And if meeting Jill wasn’t enough a couple of days later Armitron emailed me to say that I had won the giveaway they were running. All one had to do was share a pic of yourself wearing the watch during the event. My IG gif (shown below) won me FOUR more watches!! Can you believe it! I can’t wait to show you what I ordered.

Jill and Lyss took a selfie with us at the end of the night. I know you see me right there in the center.
