I'm totally SHOCKED that no one has asked me this question. Maybe moms out there are afraid to ask. I'll answer it anyway.

I'm wearing: WHATEVER I WANT!

This is your night out. If you work in business suits all day long and want to wear sweats, get comfy and come. If your an at-home mommy that stays in sweats all day long and want a chance to dress up, go for it! Want to wear your skinny jeans? Or medium-sized jeans? Wear whatever makes you feel good.

Are you worried that you might just show up on What Not to Wear? Don't worry. That's okay too - especially since one lucky lady will be chosen for an on-the-spot makeover!

Now back to me. I am seriously considering my options. Many of us working on the planning committee are excited to see this event come together so we just might glam it up and go all out GIRLS NIGHT OUT. (We are women first, after all).


It's going to be hot in the Triangle tomorrow. So I'm pretty sure I'm looking at a sleeveless dress. I've got a cute black dress with dots on it. But it shows quite a bit of leg and this early in the season, my legs might blind the crowd. I've got a darling green dress with an empire waist (conceals my dessert binging) but don't really have the right shoes. And then I have a nice little black dress. It's a bit roomy and may look like a potato sack but I could accessorize with my cute green sandals and a chunky necklace.

I'll guess you'll just have to stay tuned to see what ends up clean, unwrinkled, and not totally unflattering for my attire. I can guarantee one thing. I've got the perfect bag. Two of them, in fact, One under each eye :)

See you moms tomorrow night!

We are giving a RDU Moms shout-out to Sarah Hall at the Go Ask Mom desk at WRAL.com. She has been really helpful at promoting our event and has even posted on their site about the event. Check it out as a great resource for Triangle moms!



We also are thrilled that Carolina Parent.com, the Triangle's Family Resource, has featured our event in their 2010 Mother's Day Guide. After the fun from our night out is over, make sure you visit for ideas on how to make it last all weekend!
