When Moms and Wine Collide on a Wednesday Things Get Strange

Hey Cuties,

Last Wednesday I did something that all Mom’s should do, I went out. I left the kids at home with Babe, he checked homework, made sure they had dinner and showers while I got wine wasted.  Not exactly but stay with it. DistrictMotherHued kicked off their first event of the year and I was looking forward to it. I had a save the date on my calendar for at least a month.  The event was appropriately titled Moms Wine Out. After attending the December event I already knew I was in for a good time.

This time we headed downtown to RedRocks on H Street. The parking Gods smiled in my favor and I had a close spot to the door. The temps were 70+ in February, since we were having spring in the winter I wore a skirt.  I got all cute for work so I didn’t have to change again and failed to take a picture of my look from head to toe. My bad.

I entered the venue and headed upstairs for our event. We had it all to ourselves which was nice, upon entrance I saw some familiar faces.

We soaked up some of the wine with these delicious cupcakes with strawberries dipped in chocolate on top.  I’m a sucker for a sweet treat.

Sweets with our sweets.

Nikki and Simona kicked the evening off with a welcome and then a toast. A toast to motherhood, business, happiness and figuring it all out. Cheers!

Pixel Strut was there for a bit of instant gratification. The Style Medic and I had way too much fun snapping pics. Here we’ve been caught in action.

The DistrictMotherHued moms put on their bold lip colors and rocked their best twist out. Niketa is slaying us with this twist out right now.

They came to slay

Sometimes as Moms we find ourselves in over-sized t-shirts, sweatpants or leggings with a messy top knot.  These Mom events give us a chance to style our hair, beat our face and put on that outfit we purchased but never got around to wearing.

We let said perfectly styled hair down and enjoyed the moment, the freedom and the bonding. We received a complimentary house wine and then they had some dope $5 specials.  That Sangria in my hand was incredible, I would go back for that alone.

Then the DJ plays your favorite jam and you recall your youth while sipping your cocktail and turn it all the way up. So far up that, you look back at it to make sure you still got it. Check up on it ladies!

    Doesn’t it just make your whole day or evening when you find a parking space close to the door. You know it is going to be a great evening. The cupcakes and drinks looks over the top delicious. Looks like you enjoyed yourself.

  13. Christy Maurer

    It looks like you had a great, rejuvenating night! Those cupcakes look delicious. I’m going to have to try to create them!

  14. lisa

    This looks like so much fun! I would love attend a mom’s wine out event! Any reason to get together with moms and have a good time works for me!

  15. Pam Wattenbarger

    Sounds like you had a great time! Too bad you didn’t win the raffle though, those sound like some great prizes.

  16. Katie Kinsley

    The cupcakes with the strawberries on top look so cute! I like that they are covered in purple. And I think anyone and wine is a good combo.

  17. LaShawn

    Wow, it looks like you ladies had a wonderful time. Those cupcakes look soooo good.

  18. Jacqui S

    Nothing at all strange about moms out and wine! It would be strange without it! Lol. With that said, I love the events you post about! This looks like a great event!

  19. Heather

    You know sometimes moms just have to get out of the house and have some fun. I think it makes us better moms in the end we can have fun and do something for ourselves. What a fun event. You can’t go wrong with wine!

  20. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    It sounds like you all had a fun time with each other. I love the way those strawberries dipped in purple look, it’s great!

  21. Annemarie LeBlanc

    Looks like you and your friends had a good time. Unfortunately, I do not go out with friends as often as I wish because of too many obligations I have to meet. On some occasions when I do have time to meet up with friends, it would be a casual dinner in a quiet restaurant.

    • MimiCuteLips

      That sounds like a great time Annemarie. The important part is that you make the time to get out. We all need to recharge.

  22. Jeanine

    Looks like so much fun! Would love to do something like this, out of my comfort zone but would be a lot of fun!

  23. Susan Q.

    Those cupcakes look like the perfect treat for a perfect night out! I’m definitely jealous I wasn’t able to experience it myself! Thank you for sharing and showing us how much fun Mom’s night out can be!

  24. My Teen Guide

    I love those cute cupcakes! I’m sure you also had fun night out!

  25. Terri Beavers

    OH my gosh how fun. I need a moms wine out day soon. Those cupcakes look absolutely amazing and so does the beverages.

  26. Kathy

    Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. I would enjoy something like this too. I think it’s great to get friends together.

  27. Holly

    I am not a mom but it sounds like a much needed fun time. Those cupcakes look so delicious. I would like a couple for myself right now.
