Come Celebrate National Moms Nite Out with me at Mall of Georgia tonight :-D

To make a fight reference, 
Life and I are going at it right now and he's kinda winning 

If you follow me on a regular basis you have probably noticed my posts have been a bit sparse lately. Life has been kinda kicking my butt these past few weeks. I won't bore or depress you with all of the details of the insanity which is my life . . . we all have our own craziness we deal with, and amongst all of it we also have to work around those little things which make us a bit crazier.  You know, the waiting on the phone with customer service for what seems like hours to get a little problem fixed to dealing with selling a car, to being sick with the flu and still having to go to the grocery store, make dinner, work, clean house, change diapers, and deal with screaming toddlers (well those last two I don't have to do anymore - but I remember and feel your pain lol).  Here is a quick little rundown of the fight . . .

Week before Spring Break
get rear ended
blow engine in my car
cell phone speaker goes out
heavy family stuff

Week of Spring Break
2 kids with the flu
laptop goes crazy and locks up

Week after Spring Break
2 kids plus mom with the flu
inbox has over 1000 emails waiting to be read

I share all of this with you because a break would be fantastic and YAY . . . tonight is MOMS NITE OUT!  woot woot! A fun little break just for us moms!! It is going to be a bunch of fun and I am looking forward to be hanging out with all of amazing moms tonight at the Mall of Georgia.   I hope you will come celebrate National Mom’s Nite Out with me from 5 – 7 p.m. We will be in the Nordstrom Court.  There will be lots of exciting demonstrations, tastings, giveaways and more – including a performance by the Gwinnett Symphony Orchestra!

Participating Mall of Georgia retailers include Ann Taylor, Artful Living, AVEDA, Bakers, Belk, Best Buy Mobile, Build-A-Bear, Coldwater Creek, Crazy 8, GAP, Fiore, MasterCuts, Maternity Time, Princeton Salon, Sephora and White House Black Market.

There will be food and beverage sampling thanks to Chick-fil-A, Fuego Cantina & Grill, Kani House and Williams-Sonoma.

Additional presenters include the Gwinnett Daily Post Sensible Scents and Sugarloaf Gwinnett Center.

Be sure to stop by the registration tables upon arrival to enter drawings for lots of great door prizes and explore the many mall stores featuring special events and offers just for moms!  And be sure to stop by and see me too - it will be great to meet you and I will have a few goodies to share with you myself :-)

Today is KIND Tuesday :-)

KIND Snacks has a really cool pay it forward.  The first Tuesday of the month is KIND Tuesday KIND is on a mission to make the world a little kinder, starting with you. Through its newest initiative, Do the KIND Thing, KIND is giving people everywhere the opportunity to turn small acts of kindness into a big philanthropic KIND Act that gives back to the world. The campaign relies on the collective kindness of its consumers and leverages the Groupon model of requiring mass participation to "unlock" a deal. 

Here's how it works: On the first Tuesday of each month (a.k.a. KIND Tuesday), KIND challenges its community to carry out a specific KIND act (a.k.a. KINDING Mission) for someone else. If enough people sign up at kindsnacks.com/world to complete the monthly KINDING Mission, KIND pays that kindness forward and carries out a big philanthropic KIND Act for the world. For more information visit http://www.kindsnacks.com/world/

May KINDING Mission:
give a healthy snack to an educator
(a teacher, coworker, spouse, wise friend, etc..)

June KINDING Mission: 
give an orange to someone who provides you nourishment 
(grocery clerk, barista, school cook, a roommate who cooks for you, etc…)

thanks for the heads up Allison and Partners

Aerosoles: shoes that can get a busy mom through her day - oh so comfortably!

Aerosoles invited My City Mommy Network to their Spring Challenge.  We all got to pick out a pair of shoes from their Spring Line, try them out, and let you know what we thought of them.

a little break

First, let me preface by saying, I am a HUGE fan of bare feet.  When I can't be barefoot, I want to be comfortable. Really comfortable.   I chose a super cute wedge,  At First Plush.   Not only does this shoe look fantastic, it is comfy and fun!

I have four boys, and like all moms, I wear more than a few "hats".  I have lots of errands and to-do's on my list daily.  I put my Aerosoles shoes to the comfort test last week.   In my photo I am taking a little afternoon break from my morning of running around.  The shoes took me to the Apple Store at Perimeter Mall to have a phone fixed, dropped off items at Good Will, a lunch meeting in Dunwoody,  picked up kids from bus stop, and ran 2 kids to doctor appointments for their camp physicals.  Once home, the shoes stayed on while I ran up and down stairs for laundry loads, a sink full of dishes, and chopping and prepping veggies for dinner.  In the picture I am finally sitting down to relax and have a cup of coffee to get me ready for the next wave of mom stuff and me stuff.  The shoes are so incredibly cushy and comfy, taking them off to relax wasn't even a thought.  Usually when I am in heels, they are the first things to come off when I walk in the door. Not these shoes!  I kept them on and kept on going!  How refreshing a comfortable pair of shoes can be.  And when they are as adorable as the At First Plush wedge is . . . YAY! The shoes continued their day with making dinner for the family, another sink full of dishes, and then the grand finale, coffee and crepes at Cafe Intermezzo with my sister at midnight.  Just another "day in the life", and when life says, wear shoes, Aerosoles gets you through it comfortably! 

Want to win a summer wardrobe of Aerosoles shoes? Here's the deal, go visit Aerosoles Facebook Page, like them, and check out all of us City Mommies in our Aerosoles shoes, and vote for the one you like the best. (If its me - super cool :-D.   The City Mommy with the most votes and one Lucky Reader/Voter will win $200 to Aerosoles for a new summer wardrobe!  Happy Mother's Day!!

Winners will be announced in the afternoon of May 9th!   Good Luck, and thanks for voting :-)
