Recap: New Orleans Moms Blog’s First Official Moms Night Out AND Save The Date for August!

Moms Night Out New Orleans

First off, thank you to all of the moms who attended our Dishcrawl! We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and getting to know you all on our big night out. From chatting about what shoes to buy, the tasty drinks, right on down to serious conversations about postpartum depression; we were thrilled to get to know you better.

Last Tuesday night, NOMB had the pleasure of hosting our very first Moms Night Out! We started the night out at Feet First and had a great time trying on shoes and browsing while mingling. What could be better than making new friends, while shopping, sipping sparkling wine, tasting pie from the NOLA Pie Guy, and toting some awesome swag in fun hot pink bags? Dare I say … NOTHING?!?

From Feet First our lovely Dishcrawl Ambassador, Kenniece, led us onward  to three more stops including Baie Rouge, Dominiques and Bouligny Tavern. At every stop we were treated to tasty bites and more fun drinks. Did you all have a chance to try that rum punch at Dominiques? Definitely a favorite in my book (and perhaps the reason that, as Jessica of Nolafionnah shared, Elmo sounded just a wee bit louder the next day)!  At every stop a ticket was pulled from a bag and one lucky mom was chosen to win an amazing prize. The giveaways at each stop were provided by Blo, Loomed NOLA, Whole Foods, Tartine, Feet First and Christie Froom Photography

It was a special treat for the NOMB team to be able to relax and not worry about photographing the event. Christie Froom, from Christie Froom Photography, was on hand to capture all of the little details of the night as well as the candid and special moments that are so fun to see later. It’s also nice to see pictures of us all dolled up and to remember that we aren’t always in workout clothes, carting diaper bags, pushing strollers, and/or with baby related stains on our clothing.

SocializingWe would also like to thank all of the local companies that went out of their way to contribute prizes, coupons and discounts to make your swag bags extra special.

Bella and Harlow, NOLA Couture, Buff Beauty Bar, Blo, Barre 3, Loomed NOLA, Iconic, Whole Foods, Feet First Shoe Stores, Crescent City Farmers Market, ZukaBaby, Fried Green Design, and Langenstein’s
