Last night was a first since Miss E was born. I got dressed in something other than a nursing tank and yoga pants. I put on make-up and I WENT OUT. The Raleigh Convention and Visitor’s Bureau was totally awesome and worked with Molly Gold to put together this years Mom’s Nite Out celebration.

We were graciously welcomed at Solas in Glenwood South and quickly shown the pampering room! My first 10 minutes at the event were spent in a massage chair — made this mama very happy. Moms had the option of getting their make-up done, hair styled or nails done — all donated by the fabulous ladies at PRIMP salon.

The rest of the evening was spent with friends, talking, laughing and drinking Ilina’s yummy “Just for Moms” cocktail (recipe found here). It was heaven, and yes, now I’m going out to buy Ginger Vodka.

The CVB pulled together some amazing prizes and at the end of the night, there were several moms who were EXTRA happy. I was one of them. I won the FUN prize pack, which included a cabana rental at Solas, a membership to the NC Museum of Art and tickets to a Hurricanes game next season (date night!).

All in all, it was a much needed, fabulous night out. I only wish it could happen every week! Who’s in?
