Before I talk about the awesome dinner, let me announce the winner of the 1 year VIP account. This enables you to send 100 cards w/ stamps (domestic only). The winner is Jill Lear. Congrats Jill! I will be in touch. ­čÖé

As previously mentioned on Tuesday night I hosted 9 other awesome Chicago area moms for a dinner to talk about, the new greeting card service from Shutterfly. allows you to send real Mother’s Day cards and other greeting cards right from your computer. Each and every card is┬ácustomizable. You can add your own photos, and text to the front, back and inside of your card.

The Dinner

We had a casual dinner at Flavor 180 in downtown Chicago. Guests were treated to an awesome menu of peach BBQ chicken wings, mango jerk wings, crap cakes, delicious tilapia, sweet potato fries, Caesar salad, and peach cobbler.



The food at Flavor 180 is excellent.


Mixed Vegetables

I was able to bring home leftovers and I was still wanting more.


Sweet Potato Fries


Yum, yum, yum!

There was so much more on the menu that we could have enjoyed. I look forward to going back soon and maybe taking more friends. After learning about, eating well and drinking wine, we took a break to chat. At the end of the event each guest received a goodie bag filed with cards and stationary and a 1 year VIP account valued at $350. + fab food was a definite win and a treat for all of the moms!
