Hello, Is It Me You're Looking for?


We are Moms looking to inform and inspire, and be informed and inspired as we make our way through Momville without losing ourselves (you know, the non-mom part of us) all while having fun, keeping our sense of humor and celebrating life with champagne, of course.  

Lifestyle Mom Blog, Informing, Inspiring

Here we are.  Our first blog post. Yikes!!  So why the name Mommas and Mimosas?  First off, because alliteration is cool.  Second, because we love champagne, Cava, Proscecco or any dry wine that has bubbles, and if you mix it with orange juice, you basically have a health food, especially if you get that fortified orange juice.  What mom doesn’t like to mulit-task?  

Mommas and Mimosas was born out of a desire to reach other like minded moms, so I didn’t feel so alone on my little Mommy island.  To build a tribe of moms that freely share information and inspiration on any topic of interest.  A tribe you can ask any of those burning questions that you wouldn’t necessarily ask just anyone such as, are her eyelashes real (no, btw), Should I get a boob job at age 40 or not?  What should I get my kid’s teacher for a Christmas gift this year?  Am I the only one who picks up and sweeps 10 minutes before everyone gets home, so I don’t look like I read my book all day?  What do other stay at home Mom’s do all day, and am I the only one who feels bored out of her mind sometimes?  How do working Mom's manage it all (please share those tips, ladies).  I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of questions in my head that I would like to get out on the table for discussion because I’m curious about people and stuff.  Often, I don’t ask because I don’t want people to think I am being judgmental in my question because I’m not.  I just really am like a child, with an almost uncontrollable impulse to ask “inappropriate” questions at times.

While we do believe in asking any question, when discussing those questions, we do have some rules of engagement.  We believe real conversation can’t happen when you are so focused on saying the PC thing and not offending anyone, so we want to create a “cone of safety” for other real moms to talk about stuff that matters to us.  That being said, we think it is also important to add, when speaking your truth, remember, it’s your truth, not the truth (in other words, it's an opinion).

Perfection is not needed nor is it desired.  Keep it real.  No topic is too small or too large.  However,  all discussions should be:
1) with good intent and with love (Is it helpful?)   No snark, no judginess.  
2) what works for one, may not work for another, and 
3) everything works best if approached with an open mind.  If you are easily offended, worry more about the actual words used, and not the intent behind them, then this may not be the place for you.  

This is a place where we can shamelessly engage our curiosity about other people’s lives, parenting tips, fashion advice, whatever, in the hopes that we can learn something from one another that we can apply to our lives or at the very least have a good laugh about.  There is enough in life to tear us down - bad news, your mother-in-law (just kidding…I hope).  Here, in this place, we lift each other up.

If you have ideas or nagging questions you would like to discuss, drop us a line at or visit us on Facebook (Mommas and Mimosas) and let us know. We would love to hear from you.
