Seaworld Mommy Blogger Tweetup

On Sunday, I had the great pleasure of meeting and hanging out with some great local mommies.

To be honest, this was really the first time I got together with a group of moms since I had my daughter. Most of my friends don’t yet have kids and those who do, don’t live close-by.

Since I’m a working mami, I don’t often get to share in the “typical” mommy outings that a lot of stay at home moms attend, such as play dates, mommy & me time, and other mommy meetups.

And, since my daughter doesn’t attend day-care, but is instead taken care of by her abuela, I don’t even get to meet other moms with kids her age.

So when I heard that Ted Murphy of Izea and Wendy Piersall of Sparkplugging.com got together with the folks at Seaworld to offer some local moms a chance to hang out for the day, I jumped!

Want to hear the best part about it all?

They were all bloggers too!
Ok, that’s probably the second-best part about it. ;)

The BEST part of it was that it was FREE!

Who did I hang out with?

All great women, with great families.

The kids were well behaved and the husbands did a pretty good job too. I have to give a special thank you to my husband who was very supportive and took one for the team when he climbed up into the nets & tunnels in Shamu’s Happy Harbor so that the other mommies and I could have a chance to chat.

It was a very fun day and I had a great time sharing with other mommies who had very similar interests, complaints, and celebrations.

Thanks again @tedmurphy and @emom!

Your husband really was amazing. He was so sociable and friendly and not at all creeped out by us!
