i am completely, utterly, 100 percent burnt out.
this winter has totally done me in. illness, restlessness from inactivity, incessant whining and bickering...and don't even get me started on the kids' issues! i am starting to worry that i will never have a break from the endless loads of laundry, the constant need to clean and the never-ending demand for food that keeps me cooking, baking and running to the grocery store.
thank goodness wbbm newsradio 780 and 104.3 jack fm are presenting the sassy moms night out on february 24! if you live in or around chicago and are feeling at all like me, you will definitely not want to miss this event. this is a fabulous opportunity to leave the kids and hubby at home for a night and enjoy the things that women love most: red carpet treatment, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a custom handbag filled with swag from 1154 lill studio, and complimentary beauty treatments from mario tricocci. all in all it will be a fashionable evening filled with mini spa services, shopping and fashion demo/book signing by style expert and author, amy tara koch, spotlighting how to transform wardrobe basics into of-the-moment looks.
lest you think that this event is too self-serving (ha!), never fear because part of the proceeds from this event will go to support the american heart association's "go red for women" campaign. in fact, you may just want to wear your favorite red dress and/or red shoes to the event! attendees are also encouraged to bring any gently used maternity items to support new moms, inc, a not-for-profit organization in chicago that provides assistance for adolescent parents and their children.
if you need any more convincing (i.e. if you don't have a pulse!), check out the sassy moms in the city facebook fan page to see what other people have to say about this fabulous event. this is also a great place to go to connect with other sassy moms in chicago. if you are ready to join me in getting primped and pampered, rsvp now, and let me know that i'll be seeing you there!
in exchange for sharing this information with you, i will receive two tickets to the event. regardless, the thoughts and opinions are purely my own. it is an honor for me to share about this fun celebration of women for two very good causes.
