We can hardly believe it…Iowa City Moms Blog is turning 1!! Since our launch last April we have been blown away by how excited you all have been about all things ICMB! We have loved getting to know some of you through play dates, moms night outs, Instagram, Facebook, and more. It’s been our pleasure working with you to create community in the Iowa City area and to now be able to call so many of you our friends!! To celebrate, we’re throwing a fantastic 1st Birthday Bash, and we want YOU to join us!!
Many of you have been to our Moms Night Outs at Kyodai Japanese Grill and Iron Hawk Restaurant, which were so much fun! We absolutely loved getting dressed up to go out with you girls. However, this time we’re going a little different route…we’re having a slumber party-themed birthday! Think of it as a Moms Night IN!
What are some of your greatest memories of slumber parties as a kid? Games? Yummy food and snacks? Cake and ice cream? Fixing each other’s hair and make-up? Dance music? Well you are in luck, because we will have ALL of these (and more!) for you on April 6th!! Join Iowa City Moms Blog and South Slope Cooperative Communications for yummy food, cupcakes from Molly’s Cupcakes, frozen yogurt from Yotopia, yoga sessions with the fabulous ladies of Sweet Feet Yoga, games, make-up tutorials, pampering, prizes, and a fantastic goody bag! Plus, your ticket will also include 1 glass of wine from Cedar Ridge Winery! (There will also be non-alcoholic options available). Dress code: yoga pants!
If you’ve never been to an event before, this is definitely the one to come to!! And if you’ve been to our previous Moms Night Outs, we hope you’ll think this is the best one yet!! Whether you’re an experienced mom, a newbie, expecting, or aspiring to be a mom someday, this event is for you! Gather a bunch of girlfriends and come together, or come solo! All are welcome! You may even make some new friends!
In lieu of gifts we ask that you bring a donation for the Crisis Center of Johnson County. We’ll be posting a list of most-needed items soon, but the Crisis Center is always in need of canned and dry goods, diapers, formula, toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc.
Early bird ticket sales begin today and go through Wednesday, March 26th. Tickets are $13 or $16 (including 4 raffle tickets). Additional raffle tickets will be sold at the event and will be 1 for $1, 6 for $5 or 15 for $10. You’re definitely going to want to get some raffle tickets, as we’re working on some great prizes! 🙂
So purchase your ticket now and be sure to invite a few friends (feel free to use the Facebook share button at the bottom of the page to share on your timeline or to a friend’s wall). It’s going to be a fabulous night and we can’t wait to see you there!
