Spa Night Out for Moms

Y'all have listened to me blather on about my MOPS group for ages now, and some day I'll share my story with Mothers of Preschoolers. But one of the reasons I love my group so much is that we get together on a regular basis outside of the twice-monthly meetings at the church.

At the beginning of the summer, my friend Michelle hosted a simply fab-u-lous spa night in her gorgeous home (a blog tour of her house is on my list!) and I've been meaning to share details of the night with you.

Michelle really nailed the Zen chic atmosphere. Check out her kitchen island:

It's not a MOPS event if food is not involved:

We started the evening with a yoga class in Michelle's cavernous basement. I lasted five minutes before I decided to come upstairs and hit the beverage station:

While we hung out, we got to do paraffin wax dips on our hands...so soft!

For girls too pooped after a day of chasing bebes around, there were cucumbers galore.

I love simple get-togethers like this that don't cost a ton of money and offer plenty of opportunity for good conversation. Looking back at these pictures makes me so excited that our meetings start back over the next couple of weeks.

{Have you had time for a girlie get-together lately?}

  1. What a fun night! I wish I was in a MOPs group….oh wait, I don’t have kiddos yet. Do they have such a thing as WWCBHTHTS (Women Without Children But Hope To Have Them Soon Group). ;o)

    Ps.....I’m suppose to go to a yoga class tonight. I know everyone rants and raves about yoga so I’m going to give it one more try. Can you tell I’m not super excited about it?

  11. So fun! I'm already planning the themed parties I'm going to throw with other new moms in the area....that is as soon as I'm actually a new mom (due date is tomorrow!!) I'm thinking after 9 dry months a cocktail party would be fun, with everyone bringing their favorite recipes.

  13. I came to your blog from thebigmamablog. Serenity is what I crave! I also have 2 girls (8 and 6) and I also love girly get togethers with yummy food and drinks. I used to be part of a book club that met every month with snacks and wine. Seeing your post makes me want to get it going again!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
