Hi Family, Friends, and Fans,
Happy Friday! How was your week?
Today I'm (Sadie) going to fill you in on my "gals night out" with Mommy (and her friend Sarah) last week at The Mommie Series Houston. We are taking a break from our Olympic theme today, but Mommies have to train in many ways, you know! We will also bring you my Sadie update either this weekend or on Monday.
Last week Mommy, "Auntie" Sarah, and I went "back to basics" at The Mommie Series Houston held at La Mode Lingerie. We knew the evening would be filled with sexy and stylish Mommies, savvy information, and scrumptious bites! But who knew these friendly modern moms would also be hilarious?
The Mommie Series Houston event was presented by Misti Pace-Krahl of MISTI STYLE. The Mommie Series is a "refreshing educational series where a team of experts will enlighten, educate, and entertain modern Houston moms with their knowledge." Allison Bagley of Houston Tidbits served as the Master of Ceremony, and topics focused on FAMILY, HEALTH, FINANCE, and FASHION.
FAMILY: Neha Gupta, Owner of Elite Private Tutors, offered study tips. She also kept us laughing (this was a trend throughout the evening and with all speakers) with her honesty. She offered insight into tutoring that most of us don't think of ... tutoring can serve as a tool to broaden a student's perspective (such as by learning a new language) versus just seen as a "fix" for students that are struggling. Do you have school-aged children? Have you considered tutoring?
HEALTH: Dr. Debra Cutler of Kelsey-Seybold focused on the subject of vaccines and our children. Her wittiness also shined, and Mommy and I enjoyed her talk. Who would have thought it would be like a comedy show that night too? She also brought expertise and seriousness to the subject. She was pro-vaccinate (as most pediatricians are ...). What is your take on vaccines?
FINANCE: Claudia Kolker, author of The Immigrant Advantage, discussed the interesting tradition of the Vietnamese Money Club. She also was very charming to the audience, and "Auntie" Sarah is inspired to start our own "Vietnamese Money Club." We won't go into details because we don't want Dada to find out! Do you have any "outside of the box" ways that you spend (treat yourself or your family) or save money?
FASHION: Finally, La Mode Lingerie shared the base of our fashion wear - and fabulous pieces at that! The speaker was so charming that Mommy said we must go back in and visit soon. Do you treat yourself to fabulous, yet basic, lingerie pieces?
Mommy, Sarah, and I really enjoyed the speakers, but it was also nice mingling with other modern moms (and many carrying fetuses too). We enjoyed bites from Green Plate Kids, but unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the wine (one won't hurt, Mom ... ). There were also great drawings and prizes throughout the entire evening, and fabulous gift bags for all guests. We sure were pampered.
Mommy and I were very excited that we got our first press photo together from the event (along with Sarah) (via Last Night Pics).
