Bump, Baby, & Beyond {Event Announcement}

Entering into motherhood is such an exciting time, but often we are left with many questions too.  What should I expect?  Which products do I need?  Who do I turn to for help?  While we at Houston Moms Blog strive to bring you up to date content right here on our locally focused parenting website and social media outlets, we also know that connecting offline with fellow moms and well known businesses and brands is invaluable too.

So on October 21st, we have decided to partner together with The Bump and our parent site City Moms Blog Network to bring you an event unlike anything we have ever done before!  We hope you will join us for an exclusive evening tailored specifically to all of you new, expecting, and soon-to-be moms with sponsors, giveaways, and swag hand picked just for you.  Ticket holders will be treated to dinner, dessert, chair massages, and a Q&A with our panel of experts.  Please read below for all of the amazing details, and purchase your tickets HERE to join us for this special event.

Sponsors Updated 2

For this event, we are so excited to introduce you to some of our favorite local and national businesses that we strongly feel all new moms MUST know about!  While we are sure you will get to know {aka fall in love with} them at the event itself, we also want to give you a little bit of insight on them now too…

First of all, we are so grateful to not only have Urgent Care for Kids as our title sponsor for this event, but also as our go to after hours medical providers as well.  It never fails that little ones seem to get sick just minutes after the pediatrician’s offices are closed, and it is such a relief to know that there is an urgent care center that specializes in pediatric care.  At our event, we will have one of their amazing pediatricians sitting in on our panel of experts, so start jotting down notes and questions that you are just itching to ask about baby’s overall health and wellness.

Speaking of our panel of experts, The Motherhood Center has so many valuable resources to offer new and expecting moms in the Houston area – and we are beyond honored to have them as both our event venue and as part of our Q&A too.  At our event, you can expect to hear from a labor doula and sleep coach {so long as there aren’t any active labors!}, a lactation consultant, and Gabriela who is the center’s owner and all around wealth of knowledge for all things baby and mom.  Also, be prepared to be pampered as one of their massage therapists will be providing complimentary chair massages for all of you new moms too!

We all know that growing and nurturing a new baby sure can work up an appetite, which is why we are thrilled to have our friends from Corner Bakery Cafe providing dinner and dessert!  Come hungry as they will have trays and trays of sandwiches, fruits, veggies, and mouth-watering sweets.  Then, swing by and get to know the rest of our fabulous sponsors as the evening unfolds…

If you are expecting {or hope to be soon!}, then you will love what our friends from Little Darling Stork Co. and Sassy Storks are up to.  And once that sweet baby arrives, there is nothing like dressing them up in cute little personalized clothes – so be sure and stock up with The Little Crane Smocked Shoppe too!  Then, visit Happy Family to sample some of their organic superfoods for babies and kids…and grab a mocktail or two for mom from them as well.  By now it’s no secret that we are raving fans of The Little Gym, but did you know that their programs start as young as 4 months and go all the way up until 12 years?  Go say hello to learn more!


All attendees at our Bump, Baby, & Beyond event will receive 5 giveaway tickets – with an opportunity to earn even more! {See Charity of Choice section below.}  The giveaways for this event are absolutely incredible, and we truly feel that all of these great items would make the perfect addition to any mom’s dream registry!  Want to know what they are?  Here you go…

Charity of Choice

At our Bump, Baby, & Beyond event, we are so proud to once again be honoring the Ronald McDonald House Houston as our charity of choice!  As you have read in several of our birth stories, this organization is one that is near and dear to our hearts and has personally helped several of us as we entered into motherhood, so we are asking all attendees to please bring in-kind donations from RMHH’s Wish List to show our support.  Pantry items {breakfast goods, granola bars, fruit cups}, household items {laundry detergent, cleaners, toiletries}, and gift cards {grocery, fast food, all purpose} are always in such high need – so start stocking up now!  Please just keep in mind that RMHH asks that packages remain intact and all together for easy transport {meaning no loose granola bars or fruit cups}, but remember – for each package of items you bring, we will give you additional giveaway tickets too!

The hashtag is #BBBhouston .

Remember that posting on social media is a fabulous way to support all of the gracious businesses involved and connect with other new moms.  We encourage you to take lots of pictures and utilize the hashtag, but keep in mind that Momma’s Gonna SNAP will be there taking pictures as well!

A BIG thank you to all of our sponsors who are helping to make this event a success. If you haven’t already, click on this website to buy your tickets!

Disclaimers :: As this event is specifically for new and expecting moms, nursing newborns are welcome.  However, due to the quaint venue size, we ask that all babies are worn in carriers to allow for maximum space and to ensure their safety.  Tickets are non-refundable, and this event will happen rain or shine.  With advance notice, we will attempt to connect you with another mom who is interested in purchasing your ticket should the need arise.  Also, by purchasing this ticket you understand that your photo may be taken and give permission for Houston Moms Blog to use it on their site, in promotional materials, and/or on their social media platform.

Kelly D
Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
