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.
Proof of our foolishness.
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.
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!
Raffle time, we gathered around like kids with our fingers crossed that our number would be called. Spoiler Alert: My number was not called. Womp Womp! Even though I was delighted I was a bit jealous of some of the dope prizes the ladies won. Gifts included: $50 gift card to @shopbeaulahandrose, complimentary service from D.C.’s newest beauty hub, @prmpbeauty, Bad and Bougie Mommy and me tees courtesy of @verysmartbros, 5 lucky mamas will win “Just Because” gift sets consisting of whipped shea butter and moisturizing sugar scrub from @zeninajar, one hour makeover and pampering session as professional makeup artist Kenya D., One lucky mama at #MomsWineOut will win 2 Free Hours of Service (Valued at $110!) courtesy of the @queenbeeconcierge, and thanks to @lippbeautifully, one lucky lady will win a one-month subscription to their cruelty-free lipsticks, a lip scrub AND February’s limited edition lipstick,
See what we did here, we came out, showed out and left after having a good time and created new friendships.
I invited another Mom to the #DMVMomTribe.
