I have the privilege of being part of a very interesting group of women around the lower mainland. These are social media moms. They are moms who vlog, blog and twitter. They use facebook and twitter to connect with other people, have conversations and to help promote their businesses. These are moms who know exactly what it is to multitask. Sometimes these moms also like to get out of the house, put on some clean (and maybe even stylish) clothes and talk about whatever is on their minds. This is a group where you don’t have to apologize for being a mom and a business owner. You don’t need to explain what twitter is and how you know someone you haven’t actually met in person yet. You don’t need to explain why you have a fan page on facebook, or why sometimes you respond more quickly to your twitter handle or Mom, Mommy, Mummy, Mama or whatever your child can actually say at the moment. These are the women who come out to Vancouver Moms Night Out.
Alexis and Tracey took on the organization of this VMNO and were able to get Sue of Raspberry Kids to open up her warehouse so we could party. They decided that to make things more affordable they would buy and prepare most of the food. It was a fabulous spread.
Some of us were able to bring out our beautiful shoes, and some of us even took the time to get our feet pamapered.
I was silly and I didn’t make a full list of all the women who were there, but I have some pictures. I know that Tracey and Alexis were also taking pictures so hopefully there are some better ones of the group.
A fabulous time with some fantastic women. I wish we could do this every month. If anyone has a list of all the blogs and twitter handles I will add them to the end of this post.
Thanks for sharing the pictures 🙂 Thought about all you gals that Saturday night. Looks like a great social. Maybe one of these days, I will join you all. Maybe somewhere with skytrain access or during the day where we can bring our kids along?

Such a fun night. And yes, next time we have to bring an extra power bar so the blenders can be out front. Felt a bit like a speakeasy running into the back to whirl up new drinks.
Sorry no great group shots. I’ll have to sort through mine and send you any good ones I find.
Can someone ask @the_EmilyB if we can get a group deal on those shoes and whether they come in any other colors?!
Had a fabulous time and can’t wait to get together again in the fall.
@mommyingaround … regardless of the location of the next venue, I’m happy to pick you up if it isn’t skytrain accessible …
SO wish I was there! Next time! (And I LOVE LOVE LOVE your intro paragraph!) xoxo.
