dinner and diapers

Last week, I joined Tend by Glam and a small group of mom bloggers and guests at Philippe Chow in midtown for a dinner sponsored by Huggies. Over Chinese and cocktails, we dished on everything from diaper explosion stories (only a group of moms could have this conversation and still get through a meal), our birthing experiences (ditto) and the joys and frustrations that come with motherhood.

I'll be the first to admit that I don't go out as much as I used to, so when the occasion pops up to throw on a dress and add an extra swipe of mascara, I'm all for it. While that might seem kind of lame (okay, it definitely does), here's my positive spin: I used to go out all the time pre-children, and you know what? I enjoy myself more now because I know just how important "me time" is, and I appreciate it immensely. Soooo much more than when I was a swingin' single gal or "smug married," to quote Bridget Jones. I value every minute that I get to spend with friends, and that's something you can't put a price tag on. It's nice to have a reminder of who you are when you've stepped away from the title of Mama for a few hours.


My guest for the evening was a friend who's a soon-to-be mama herself. We had a great time catching up on all things baby, from sharing photos of her nursery (so cute!) to discussing daycares vs. nannies. It was also fun bringing a friend into my "blogging world," which are usually two separate entities. So with that said, a special thanks to Tend and Huggies for allowing us to bring guests!

Red velvet cake for dessert. Ummm.... yes, please!
We went home with an amazing goody bag filled to the brim with fun gifts for the new mama:

Sophie teething ring
Aden + Anais security blanket set
Baby Bjorn bib
Skip Hop diaper messenger bag
Huggies diaper changing pads

What a treat! I had such a great evening, from hanging out with an old friend, to making new ones.
