Fabulous Mami Friday - Mom's Nite Out


Yeah! Welcome to my new weekly series! I am so excited because this is actually a "secret" resolution for the year, not just for me, but for my husband. I, myself, DO NOT feel like the most beautiful woman/wife/mother. But it's hard to believe when you don't believe it yourself.

So in this "series" each week I will focus on one part of the body/feature and share what I think about it, how I can make myself feel better about it, do something about it by posting how-to's or tutorials, my favorite fashion pin from Pinterest that week. Follow "My Style" on Pinterest if you're a big girl.

I hope ya'll enjoy it and share your insecurities or what you love about your body as well. If you're interested, check out this artile I read on Glamor.com

Week 4: YOU!

Good Morning! Happy Friday.... did you know I've been featured in many books and magazines? All about being a mom. Being a mom surpasses all other jobs, IMO. And it's what I know and love. The first bok I was ever in was "Mom's Night Out, Even inmates get time off for good behavior." by Rachel Hammond. It's a great book for all moms to read!

National Mom's Nite Out 2012Since then I have attended National Mom Nite Out events and parties and it's always super fun. I also love that it is near Mother's Day. Gives a valid excuse to go and enjoy yourself, with no husband or kids. I also love to get all dressed up to make myself, not only look good, but feel good. I know mom's do it almost everyday, but not me, hence, this series.

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 12th and Mom's Nite Out is (always on), Thursday, May 9th!

So, I thought I would share some events that you can check out for a Mom's Night Out!

FIRST, Check out the National Mom's Nite Out website. You can find your local event or the list of Simon Malls that will have a special night just for mom! Be sure to get your girlfriends together and enjoy the night!

Featured at the expo are Woman-Owned Businesses and is going to be FREE to the public to visit. Great time to pick up some amazing Mother's Day gifts too!



Last, but not least. Who doesn't love the Farmer's Market?! You can visit the market in McAllen (at the McAllen Public Library) and then stay to watch a FREE Movie. Another great way to get some girlfriends together and enjoy the afternoon.

Your Thoughts:

Do you spend enough time alone? or have Girl's Night Out? Will you be attending your local Mom's Nite Out Event?

My Thoughts:

Do Definitely need time alone once a week. I usually get a few hours once or twice a week in the early morning when Eliada doesn't wake up, but again, that's rare. Also, on Fridays I sometimes have hubby watch the girls while I go shopping :) So I will take advantage of these great events and socialize with some awesome moms!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

  1. With a 10 month old, my quick morning shower is pretty much the extent of my alone time (and I'm grateful for even that). I'll have to look into Mom's Nite Out in my area - thanks!

  2. I agree, all moms need a little alone time. I wish I could get a little more of it.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
