Dallas Launch Party for Dr. Smith’s Baby Ointment

What do the renowned Fearing's Restaurant, Ali Landry, the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas and Baby Butts all have in common?  They're all part of the Launch Party for Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment, of course!  I wasn't able to attend, so I did the next best thing....I decided to live vicariously through someone else, and hire my new-found guest blogger buddy, Jess Self, to go have fun for me.  

Did I mention I'm super jealous? Well, let's all enjoy her story:

A morning off from the kids, an excuse to get “fancied up,” great food, cocktails, amazing people to meet, and a happy baby with a healthy bum!!! These were all the things that came to mind when I was invited to attend the Dallas Launch Party for Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment. I was so excited that I was going to get to share a neat event with local bloggers from Texas, but was even more excited when I found out I would be hanging with a celebrity too! 

The launch was for a reliable product; in fact they are celebrating the “50th” birthday of Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment. Dr. Forrest Smith, a pediatrician from San Antonio, created the product in 1963.  Until a few years ago, it was very hard to find the product on the shelves. That all changed four years ago when Mission Pharmacal purchased the product and decided to make sure this product was available to get on our babies’ bottoms. Mission, being a seasoned family company established in 1946, had no problem doing so!!  The launch of Dr. Smith’s Baby Ointment was very productive causing it to hit the shelves of every, that’s right, every Walgreen’s, and many other supermarkets and drugstores. It can also be found now at Kroger, Wal-Mart, and HEB. I’m more than positive that other major chains will not be far behind in stocking their shelves, as well!

The Dallas Launch Party for Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment was held at the luxurious Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Dallas, at their upscale Fearing’s Restaurant. When we arrived, we were in awe! The place was beautiful and that is being modest.


After we took some pictures and tried to get over our shell shock from how beautiful the hotel was, we were escorted to the amazing Fearing’s Restaurant and they had it decked out! The room had a 360° view with floor to ceiling glass windows and a chandelier that was TO DIE FOR! I was already a happy girl and the event had not even started.


As we were meeting fellow bloggers and chatting away, they were serving some of the most delicious breakfast treats. Most breakfasts at my house consists of bananas, cheerios, and maybe a muffin here and there. So this was a very special treat. They had fruit kabobs, mini biscuit breakfast sandwiches; pancakes with an amazing blueberry puree, and my absolute favorite were the French toast bites! Now all these things sound ordinary but they were NOT! My mouth is still watering.

As I was stuffing my face, the most stunning woman walked up to me and I was star struck! Ali Landry is beautiful!!! I was in awe, and slightly jealous all in the same swoop. Everyone knows her as the gorgeous babe from the Doritos’s Super Bowl commercial. She is an actress, model, TV host, owner of a clothing line, wife of a famous director, and most importantly, a momma to three little gems. Her life is all about her babies and I was thoroughly impressed! She even had her newest edition, two-month-old Valentin, with her and he was so precious. She truly disproved my theory that all celebrity babies are raised by their nannies!


We had the pleasure of meeting several of the wonderful people who work with Mission Pharmacal. The Vice President of Marketing, Natalie, was a very sweet lady who is a mother of twins. The Vice President/ Part Owner of the company, Bear and his lovely wife, made the biggest impact on me personally. They are parents to triplets who are now in college. They are on the top of my list, of the most down to earth, true Texan friendly people. We chatted about kids and even took a little parenting advice from these tendered parents.


Mission Pharmacal gave a sweet gift to Ali for her newest addition, which was just the cherry on top for how kind the people are who own and operate this company. I had a genuine good time with all of the nice people and five star treatments. And the best part was they gave each of us Mommies a nice stock size jar and tube to take home to give a try! I am super excited to keep my little guy’s bum happy! Since we all know “HAPPY BABY EQUALS HAPPY MOMMA!!”
