Oh, What a Nite!

(Thanks for the photo, Kate!)

Thursday night’s much-anticipated Mom’s Nite Out party was everything my co-planner Tricia and I hoped it would be.  It was SO much fun – a beautiful space full of moms having a great time, relaxing, and being pampered.  Eating dinner they didn’t have to cook, having drinks made for them, and winning lots of COOL PRIZES!  Our sponsors, A Modern Eden, Good Samaritan Hospital, The Motherhood.com, Kroger and Subway really hit it out of the park!!  And our wonderful hosts, the crew at FORGE – treated us like queens, and made sure we were comfortable in their beautiful space. See?

But I am getting ahead of myself. Before we partied, there was the small matter of stuffing the swag bags. And by small I mean NOT SMALL AT ALL! We had a ton of great stuff, including bags provided be eBay and Kroger, and much, much more!
Thanks to all our great swag providers:

Mary Kay

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter (check out their new website!)


Cheryl & Co.


Smashburger Dayton


Lia Sophia jewelry

Bounce Dryer Bar

Hip Fusion Designs (my fave mommy necklaces!)

Paperreka:: stationery design

I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter!

Your products made our swag bags phenomenal!

…and back to the FUN!  Here’s me talking to two of my fave local ladies, Amy in Ohio and Holly Michael of Good Samaritan Hospital (*cough* birthplace of Jenny Rapson *cough*), who as our Primary Sponsor really helped make the party amazing!  Please note the FORGE guys hard at word in the upper right corner mixing drinks for the ladies!

Oh, yes, we had drinks!

And wonderful, yummy subs and salads from Subway!

and delicious party trays from Kroger catering:

We also had some KILLER prizes!   We had so many, I swear 80% of the guests there won a prize!

But most of all, we had a FUN, carefree, friend-filled night. That’s what it’s all about!

Thanks again so much to our amazing sponsors who made this night of fun and celebration a real treat for us all!

  4. Looks like ya’ll had a fabulous time. So happy for you all and so jealous!! I think you should totally send me (An honorary Ohioan and honorary Mom) a really cool swag bag. Because, nothing cool and exciting and fun ever happens here. XOXO

  5. I had a great time at the Mom’s Nite Out. Thanks to Katie over at Domestic Debacle for the donation of the Disney items prize pack. My boys loved the goodies. And my husband is looking forward to our “Date Night” when we spend our Melting Pot gift certificate. Can you go wrong with melted cheese and chocolate? I think not. I can’t wait for future MNO gatherings. Thanks for all of your hard work, Jenny and Tricia.

  6. Looks like fun!! And, at least Cortney did look like she enjoyed that picture with you. I guess the more you post pictures of her, the more she will make herself aware of the ecstatic look in her face, right? 🙂
