{Event Recap}: Speed Dating for Mom Friends

We had so much fun at our Speed Dating for Mom Friends Moms Night Out! It was so wonderful to get a chance to take a break from our busy lives and personally connect with other women who understand what it’s like to be on this motherhood journey! 

Our Co-Host

A huge thanks goes out to our fabulous co-host, Ashley Bermel from Skogman Realty, for providing such a gorgeous location for our event! We had a terrific time hanging out at Skogman’s Model Home, which was decked out in the most amazing balloon arch, and enjoying delicious food and drinks!

Our Presenting Sponsor

We loved getting to hear from Hannah Anderson, fellow mom and chiropractor with Back in Line Family Chiropractic & Wellness and fitness & wellness coach with Birthfit Cedar Rapids. She understands what it’s like to be a busy mom looking to improve her own wellness, as well as her family’s, and it was terrific to get to connect with her over the speed dating table as well!

Our Pampering Stations

Shannon Goodloe from Therapy Kneads gave the most amazing chair massages, and we loved trying out her samples of Juice Plus supplements! She is accepting massage therapy clients and loves to educate about health & wellness, so be sure to visit her websites for Therapy Kneads and Juice Plus to get more info!!

Morgan Ague hooked us up with some fantastic scrubs, lotions, and beauty products from Perfectly Posh! They smell amazing and make terrific gifts or a wonderful treat just for yourself! Check out Perfectly Posh with Morgan Ague to see all she has to offer!!

Every mama could use a bit of relaxation, which is why we loved the awesome essential oil rollers Brittney McNutt had for us! She’s passionate about how essential oils have made a difference for her family and sharing that with others. Be sure to visit her at Young Living Essential Oils with Brittney McNutt to find out more!

The Mom Friends

We were so proud of all the women who stepped out of their comfort zone to attend this event! We heard so many say that they were nervous about attending an event by themselves, but that they were so glad for the opportunity that they had to escape their everyday and have a chance to meet other women who were there with the same goal of making friends! New relationships were started and hopefully some will turn into friendships as this group continues to connect through our event Facebook group!
