The evening started off with delicious sandwiches from the Submarine House, crackers and cheese, yummy macaroni and potato salad, chocolate fondue from The Melting Pot, and they even had frozen margarita's. They also passed around these fun little cake lollipops that were absolutely divine from Lulee's Lollies. After my girlfriends and I finished eating, it was time to mingle.
They had an entire table set up with various giveaways (you were given, I believe 20 tickets at the beginning of the evening) from a Boogie Wipes giveaway, to Thirty One giveaways, and they were even giving away tickets to COSI (Columbus | Dynamic Hands-On Science Center). You could put one or all your tickets into one box (I put over half in the one for COSI, love that place). I wasn't lucky enough to win any of the giveaways, but I did end up going home with a fabulous swag bag filled with goodies and coupons.
Besides given the opportunity to win free stuff, they also had representatives from Mary Kay, Lia Sophia, and Beaute Box (she was doing free shellac manicures). Not to mention, a massage therapist was there giving us free massages, which was probably the best 10 minutes (not sure if it was that long or not) of my day.
It was a fabulous evening filled with yummy food, amazing company, and swag bags. This event also gave me some neat ideas. I was thinking, "how much fun it would be to have a "night out" like this for my fellow military wives and mommies?" I've spoken about this idea to a few others, and maybe/hopefully we can get something in the works to have one.
All mommies (and daddies) are well deserving of an evening out every once and a while. I know I am!
