The Morning After

Last night's party was a great success! It was so wonderful to meet the happy, healthy, hip parents who came out to mingle, celebrate family and enjoy a night out.

I want to give a big thank you to Alicia from Java Mama for her support and help during the drawing last night. The upcoming schedule for parenting workshops that Happy Healthy Hip Parenting offers at Java Mama will be announced soon.

Another thank you goes to Stacey from San Diego Bargain Mama for her support and promotion of the event. Stacey took pictures during the event and will be sharing those with our on line commUNITY shortly! Keep your eyes out for your face to appear.

Finally, a thank you is extended to Christine from The Neighbourhood for providing - and selecting - my attire for last night. She owns a fabulous boutique in University Heights which is a great place for men and women to discover wares from the latest designers. Christine hand selects her inventory and works with each customer to provide them with the perfect fit. She's great. Stop by.

The Airport Lounge was a fantastic venue for the event and we were all treated like First Class passengers so I look forward to heading there again to enjoy more great food and fabulous cocktails. The female DJ was a hit so a few of us took advantage of the dance floor and relieved some stress and worked off the drinks we were enjoying.

I was so pleased that everyone who came walked away with some great prizes. There are still several to be given away, so if you'd like the opportunity to win even more, we're creating an additional chance to win. SUBSCRIBE to this blog OR the weekly Parenting News You Can Use newsletter to be entered for this drawing.

The biggest prize that was given away last night was the Enrollment (for 2) to the upcoming Parenting Retreat held at the La Jolla Marriott. You can learn more about this weekend course on the Happy Healthy Hip Parenting website or you can simply call or email me with questions and I will be happy to provide you with more details.

Thanks to everyone who joined the celebration last night. The Happy Healthy Hip Happy Hour is destined to become an annual event here in San Diego, and in other cities around the country.

I'm grateful that you have chosen to become a member of the Happy Healthy Hip Parenting commUNITY. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas for next year.
