This past Thursday, May 7th was National Mom’s Night Out. Mom’s (Grandmom’s, Mom’s to Be & Women who wanted to have a night out) from all over the country participated both at their local mall as well as online via twitter or video-cam. For those of your who participated – I KNOW you had a great time. For those who didn’t, I’ll alert you next time because it was a FUN night. I got to meet some interesting new people and THEY GAVE AWAY all sorts of prizes (including 7 VADO video cameras). Unfortunately, I was not one of the winners, but I still had a lot of fun.
I just wanted to take a minute to thank Ragu for making it an even better night. Here at the mansion we were able to participate in the Ragú® Pasta Dish Kit program. Ragu sent us their
newest flavors including –
- a Box of Barilla spaghetti
- a jar of Ragu Margarhita sauce
- a jar of Ragu Sweet Tomato Basil Sauce
Get this – these new sauces have a FULL serving of vegetables in every half cup.
OK, Ragu – not only did you provide dinner – but you said that DAD had to make it. Now that’s a REAL Mom’s Night Out. By the way, he did a great job and the Margarhita sauce he used that night reminded me of a pizza sauce. I think that the next time we use it, I’ll actually have HIM make a pizza.
Most importantly – we ALL need a night out. I take them often, and it’s one of those things that helps me to live the good life. A night out can reduce stress and allow you to connect with others outside of your home. When I was a young mom, I found this SO IMPORTANT.
You need to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! You’ll come back happier, more refreshed and ready to take on whatever life (or your children) throws at you.
