Big thank you to Lazy Dog restaurants for hosting our party.
Can you believe there’s been one full year of The Okayest Moms?! I think I speak for Heather too when I say that we had no idea what this journey would bring us and it has far exceeded our every expectation. I am so thankful for every single person who reads, shares and generally cares about the things we have to say. It is humbling and it makes me a sappy, cheesy human. When we were planning our 1 year anniversary celebration we knew we had to include readers and other bloggers who have helped us and supported us over the past year. Below is a recap of our first (and definitely not last!) #OkayestHappyHour!
Lazy Dog Restaurant + Bar
Heather and I knew that we had to celebrate this milestone and when we were brainstorming ideas we knew for sure we needed two key things: good food and good drinks. Securing a location with both of these things was at the top of our list. We were stoked to be able to partner with Lazy Dog Restaurant in Roseville.
We had family style appetizers and a choice of cocktails from their extensive, delicious menu.
My favorite was the candied bacon–I cannot put into words my love affair with this stuff. Soooo. Freaking. Good.
We had a majority of the patio and while the weather was on the warm side, I barely noticed because of a periodic breeze and the patio fans running. This particular location also had a beautiful view of the sunset which made it all the more amazing.
Favor bags for all
We put together goodie bags for everyone in attendance. Just a little something fun to say thank you for coming.
Celebrating the Okayest community
My favorite part of the entire evening was celebrating with the Okayest Mom community. Some were good friends, some were new friends who fit in seamlessly, and some used it as a much needed night out free from responsibility. No matter the reason or person, it was wonderful getting to visit and laugh with everyone who attended!
