Ultimate Mom's Night OutThis Thursday for Things I Love Thursday the thing I LOVE is Ultimate Mom's Night Out. Last Thursday, my fabulous co-host Kate and I got to spend a few hours with several local ladies for an evening of relaxing, fun, laughter and pampering. We think that mom's deserve a night out just having fun and we all enjoyed several hours at Villas at the Pointe Clubhouse doing just that. The evening started off with registration and all the lovely mama's that brought their nursing babies even got a Teething Bling bangle to model for the evening. There was all sorts of yummy food to munch including tasty The Submarine House sandwiches, delicious chocolate fondue strawberries and krispy treats from The Melting Pot and some cute Lulee's Lollies cakepops. 

The Melting PotBut there was so much more than just food that night- we had giveaways GALORE!! Everyone received 20 tickets and could choose what giveaways they wanted to try to win. There was everything from Boogie Wipes to Underdoodles and COSI to Jenna Claire in our giveaways so that there was something for everyone to enter. I know that over half of all the moms there that night won a prize from one of our sponsors.

UMNOThere was also a fun photo booth with pictures taken by Photography by Amy McSwegin, chair massages from At Peace Massage and Wellness, manicures by Beaute Box and Satin Hands treatments by Andrea from Mary Kay. Last but not least, everyone got to take home a swag bag literally stuffed full of swag!! Thanks to all our great giveaway, food and swag sponsors. We are so thankful to have such generous sponsors at Ultimate Mom's Night Out our evening could not have happened without them.

Fazoli'sCLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners Su and Erin.

Have you been to Fazoli's lately and checked out their new menu? They just expanded their menu and Dayton was one of the first places to get the new menu. Their kids menu now has more options including; pepperoni breadsicks, pizza bowties, pasta and butter sauce and a few other items. For a more "grown-up" palette there are four new 400 calorie options- chicken mushroom alfredo, penne tuscano, pasta margherita, and three cheese baked ravioli. There are several other changes to the menu inluding the addition of coffee and various breadsticks and dippers.

I was flying solo with the boys last Tuesday so we decided to head to Fazoli's for Kid's Night. C had kid's pizza and B happily scarfed down all of his pizza bowtie dinner. They are getting fun little trays for their kids meals, but when we went they didn't have them yet. Every Tuesday starting at 5pm it's Kid's Night and kid's entrees are $1.49 with an adult entree purchase (kids' meals are typically $3.49). On Kid's Night there is usually an employee leading craft projects with the kids, C had fun coloring and making crafts while we waited for our food. Which was nice because it get me a little time to hang with just B, as he banged spoons on the table singing to himself. My boys ate all their dinner, we were all full when we left and I got a little break from cooking. And really when it comes to Fazoli's what kid doesn't love their all you can eat breadsticks?! (Looking for more kid's meal deals? Be sure to check out our list of Kids Eat Free/ Cheap list)


Now, just for my lovely readers we are giving away 2 (two) $25 gift cards so you can enjoy dinner there too.
