This week, it was time for Alphabet Play, which is deliciously sponsored by Alpha-bits Cereal!
After much "debate" we "decided" on "D is for decorating" instead of "D is for Reindeer" (wink). Though we did get pretty creative on how to make a "D" into one!

I am thrilled to start working within the great organization that is momstown! I look forward to being able to share my creativeness with other mothers, be there to offer a friendly smile to a new mom when its needed the most and help create a great bonding moment between mother and baby. I am a firm believer that “it takes a village” and I am proud to become a member of that village.

Spend an hour with us in the SupperWorks kitchen and put together 6 different family sized entrees. We offer 14 entrees to choose from each month and there is something there for everyone. Even my picky 5 year old! With you in the kitchen, your entrees are made with love. You know your family best and can alter the recipe to suit your needs. Reduce the spice or add extra garlic, you choose! For those extra busy families let us put your entrees together for you. Simply pick them up, fill your freezer and enjoy great meals and more time with your family.

We are always fortunate to have sponsors that love having us taking over the facility for a couple of days, and foster our growth and innovation. They love partnering with a business that can bring them value to their direct target market, and we love being able to help with exactly that. It is what we do after-all. This November, we were overjoyed to be staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Niagara Falls. This hotel comes complete with a Keg Steakhouse right in the hotel that spoiled us with fantastic food! We were able to even conference right in the hotel. We all had ample Wi-Fi, fed to all of our hundreds of devices, and could connect flawlessly. What I loved about this location, was that while we were away for focused growth and innovation, we could walk to the Falls and many other tourist spots, without worrying about driving or parking.
Journey Behind the Falls with Tourism Niagara. I have been to Niagara Falls many of times, and still had never done this attraction. We had so much fun, in our yellow raincoats, getting completely drenched and loving it. I think we were completely awe-struck at looking at the falls from behind the water - what a view!
After some play time at the Falls, a hot shower and some gathering, we got ready for our Inaugural Awards Ceremony. The majority of awards are peer-nominated and I was honoured to receive this award, the Overcoming Adversity Award for 2013. Although I am humbled to receive this from peers, my hope is that I won't even have to be nominated for this in 2014!
As a team, we do take advantage of being together twice a year, in the same room (or hotel!). It can be isolating and challenging being a single proprietor and entrepreneur and we love having the chance to connect in person 2 times a year. There is always board games involved, babies and some relaxing activities too. Our social time is almost as important as our focused business time. We motivate and inspire some much in each other, that this conference gives new meaning to business development.
Sunday night, as our finale night, we headed over to Chateau Des Charmes for wine-tasting and tours with the Bosc Family in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Cherie-Lynn Buchanan was on hand too to capture brand new headshot photos for us, preparing for our new website launch!
We spent a intense weekend of talking innovation and change. As momstown.ca heads into our 7th year of business, we will be launching a new website, and bringing a whole new level of value to our momstown program pass holders as well as to our clients and sponsors.
I am so honoured, and thrilled to be a part of this momstown movement and the fantastic team that it fosters. We are all completely invested in our businesses, our visions and aspirations for the brand. We are all-in and love what we bring to our communities. If you feel our passion and would love to join our team, you can find more information here.
The Courtyard Marriott wants to make sure you get a chance to relax and enjoy their facilities as well, so they are giving away a Holiday Getaway to one lucky mom. Expires Nov 30th!
