A Celebration?

As I mentioned yesterday, I was going to the National Mom's Nite Out celebration at our mall. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. I felt like I was at a women's fair more then going out and having fun.

I met Nicole, the blogger who was SUPPOSED to help with the planning. She told me how she wasn't included in any decisions for what to do and she was let down also. I think that this event should of been held like a party, not just trying to sell us stuff, or trying to get us to sign up to have a Mary Kay party.

I think that Simon Malls didn't get it. We were to have fun. Give us a free back rub. Make US dinner. Let us dance. Get us drunk. (Just kidding on the drinking thing-maybe.) BSM Media, if you are listening, please consider this for next year, or I'll probably not go again.

All and all, I made the best of it. I made a new blogger friend, I got some food samples, a small margarita, a goodie bag, and this...

THIS made it all worth while.

Thank-you, Leo Kelly. You made my night.

Love the drawing!! I never knew there was a National Moms Night Out (I wonder how many run away :-)?)

I've never heard of a National Mom's Night Out but I'm sorry it was a disappointment. Why would the organizers assume that a mom's night out is a way to get you to sign up for something? That really irks me. Let moms have a REAL night out - why is that so hard?

Funny picture. Sorry it wasn't like you expected. Hope your Mother's Day is perfect.

I hadn't heard of it, but that doesn't sound too compelling. Actually, I think free wine would have been the way to go.

I've seen girls night outs around and about - and yes they seem centered around shopping. Not quite the idea!
