When Mamas Go Wild–Mile High Mamas Night Out Revisited!
[photopress:Dnote.jpg,full,pp_image]Let’s face it: being a “mommy blogger” does not just entail writing about the kids. Sometimes we like to break out and have a
Moms Gone Wild Mama’s Night Out. Because great eats + live music - the offspring = good times.
Many of Colorado’s most prominent mommy bloggers gathered at the D Note in Arvada for food, drinks, mingling and live music last Wednesday night. Freebies were in abundance and giveaways came from Random House, a Potty Tots Potty Training Kit (which a few mamas fought over), BornFit, (our favorite activewear for moms that is also locally-based), a gift certificate for Menu of the Week, and the grand prize was a professional teeth whitening from Town Center Dentistry and Orthodontics, a $350 value! I did the drawing and was delighted to select my own name for the grand prize.
It wasn’t rigged, promise.
And yes, I did award it to Jen of Laughing at Chaos. Bummer.
In an effort to maximize mingling, I visited everyone’s blogs and selected a few gems about each blogger. I then set them loose to try to discover who matched the descriptions. A little insight into the evening and those who attended:
*A relative unknown named Ellen Degeneres helped launch her career. Ask her about it! (Olivia of BabyCandy and Congrats from Colorado)
*Recently entitled a post—Blogs I’m Reading: Photography and Hemorrhoids but NOT Photography of Hemorrhoids. Known to wear flip flops, whatever the season. Claims to be from California but could be part Canuck. (Holly of What Was I Saying Again?)
*Is rumored to have said, “You haven’t seen me naked” during a 9News interview. (Lisa, owner of BornFit)
*Is such an optimist that she has coined [photopress:Lori.jpg,full,pp_image]“Perfect Mondays” on her blog. Ask how she got started and if she is aware that Mondays are anything BUT perfect? (Lori of Weebles Wobblog and party organizer extraordinaire)
*Is trying to teach herself HTML code while juggling the life of a zookeeper. Ask her what is code for ANIMALISTIC. (Nini of Delirious Zoo)
*Married to a comedian but with a blog tagline like “Suck on this,” she may be their family’s front-runner for humor. (Sarah of Imaginary Binky)
*Is a tech-talking mama who recently discovered HerSEO.com and excitedly blogged about it. Huh? (Beckie of Tech Talk for Moms)
*Has a propensity for consuming antibiotics and is the hottest former band geek around. (Jen of Laughing at Chaos)
*Kids range in age from 3 to 17. A toddler and a teenager? Someone give her gold medal. Kids also profess Girl Scout cookies make her happy. Mindy of Single Mom Mindy)
*Pastimes include vacuuming up Polly Pocket accessories, Yo Gabba Gabba, red wine, Family Guy and laundry for two sets of twins. (Laura of LaLa Girl)
*Generally very well behaved. Just don’t ask her about CSAP, the “fun” in fundraising, or about her life as a former mean girl. (Gretchen of LifeNut)
*Has been known to write about needing more kittens in her life and about why her husband will be mortified. (Jenna of Peace It Together)
*Recently worked with Mom Central to promote Disney on Ice. Ask her to demonstrate a double-axle. (Annie-Marie of A Mama’s Rant)
*Has a love for knee-high tube socks and has them featured on her blog’s header. (Denise of Eat Play Love)
*Has a daughter who was recently accepted to college. Also likes Lemons. (Sarah of Lemony Sarah)
*Her little N-Man is officially enrolled in preschool and already has his first crush. Who could it be? Think: older woman. (Cyndi of Li’l CyndiLu Who)
*Recently infected her family with lice. Debatable whether she should be out in public.
The identity of the final clue shall remain anonymous. However if you read this blog with any regularity, you already know the sad, sad answer.
