A few months ago, I introduced you to The Mommy Sleepover and discussed why you needed it in your own life.
Truth Moment: I don’t think many of you were listening to me.
You may have read it and said it seemed like a great passing idea, but have you done it yet? Well, have you? It’s okay if you haven’t, really, I promise you it is. But, let’s fix it. Because you…YES…YOU…the one reading the screen right this second, deserve to chill out.
Listen….hold on, get really close to the screen right now….YOU NEED a mommy sleepover. Why?
Mommy Sleepovers Let Moms Chill Out!
It’s summertime. Your kids are driving you nuts. You’re ready for school to be back in session (unless, you homeschool like us and then you REALLY need a break). BUT….finding time for yourself it hard. There either literally isn’t any time left or you feel guilty about doing something away from your kids. Guess what!? You can have the best of both worlds with a mommy sleepover.
My friends and I have been doing mommy sleepovers for almost a year now, every few months, and it’s been one of the best things for our sanity and our friendship. Motherhood is hard, insanely hard as we all know, but one night we are allowed to chill out and relax. The kids all play with each other and we sit around, laugh, and joke all night.
One thing we’ve learned is that we have more fun when we aren’t cooking the majority of food to bring over. Our very first sleepover, we all made a dish or two and while it was good, we knew we wanted to make our lives easier. Since then, we’ve figured out other ways to make our lives easier when it comes to eating at our sleepovers. Recently, I learned that Auntie Anne’s now has catering.
Listen. I grew up where the only time we had Auntie Anne’s was when we went to the mall. It was always an amazing treat and I begged for a pretzel and lemonade. I loved when Andrew and I first got together and I learned he also had a love of grabbing a pretzel every time we went to the mall. Since having kids, mall trips, for our family, don’t happen often, but Auntie Anne’s catering changes the game!
I easily put an order in for what I wanted to grab for the party – a sampler platter of mini pretzel nuggets, a dozen other pretzels, a gallon of strawberry lemonade, their famous original lemonade, and tea.
Hold the front door.
Did I just say I got tea from Auntie Anne’s? Yup, I did. Auntie Anne’s just launched a brand new product. Iced Tea. And when mixed with their famous original lemonade, for Lemonade Iced Tea…it’s AHMAZING! Available in unsweet or sweetened iced tea, it’s the perfect way for everyone to chill out whether you need a catering order or you’re just grabbing a treat for yourself.
Our sleepover went off without a hitch once again and being able to cater some of the food made it even easier to chill out.
So…are you ready to chill out now? Grab your fav girlfriends, set a date, place your Auntie Anne’s catering order and have a blast! Share with us using #TheMommySleepover once you do!
