Have you ever been to a Mommy Mixer?
We have now had two events this year so far. It’s long awaited for many of our moms who were looking for their new BFF!
Our Plano Moms team know that you have moved to Plano, TX from someplace else or simply found it hard to meet new friends and this event was perfect for meeting that need.
Our Plano Moms Mommy Mixer team included Lauren, Jaime and Susan who were there to run the event on April 29th and August 5th at Celebrity Café & Bakery.
Susan said “The Mommy Mixer went AMAZING! It really was a great event and the ladies loved it”
Upon arrival, our moms got Name-tags and stickers with their name/email address. Ideal for swapping with new friends, they were very popular!
All the moms had free chances to win fabulous door prizes from some of our own Mompreneurs offering gift certificates for all types of products and services – from Hair & Make Up, Personal Training, Custom gifts, Clothing and much more!
Speed Mommy Dating needs to be planned, right? We matched our moms based on nearby locations and age of kids for maximum success.
Our timings meant that each pair of moms had a chance to chat and move around with some question ideas for inspiration.
Lots of stickers were swapped & many have become Facebook friends and already arranged meet-ups!
Celebrity Café & Bakery ensured that our ladies were fueled with a great buffet and soft drinks. Many of our moms brought their own wine and beer and shared among each other
“This really was so much fun! I definitely enjoyed myself and I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am for this event. Having moved here last summer I just haven’t really had the chance to meet very many people and with this event I was able to connect with moms I may have never met. I feel like I have the beginnings for some really great friendships all because of this event. I truly am very grateful to everyone that helped to organize and run this. Thank you so much for creating such a fun way to make new friends” – Sydney, a Plano Mom.
Who wants another one? Our first Mommy Mixer was a success and we are busy planning our next one!

Meet Plano Mom, Shannon

Occupation: Preschool Teacher, Blogger at Plano Moms, Blogger at Daily Momtivity
Family/Kids: Married to Kelly (13 years, I seriously just had to count!) 1 daughter, Gracie (9), 1 son Ramsey (4)
What’s on her DVR: WAY TOO MUCH! I NEVER watch any live tv (hardly ever) so everything is recorded. My favorites are Real Housewives of OC and Beverly Hills, Grey’s Anatomy, Teen Mom (don’t judge!), Scandal, and Fixer Upper. Besides that, my DVR is filled with every single Paw Patrol, PJ Masks, and silly Disney shows for my daughter.
Favorite Plano Restaurant and why: Our favorite place is Mi Cocina (lakeside) I love that they have a side are for kids to play, I love the food, and hands down the best margaritas in Texas!
Favorite date night spot around Plano: We hardly do date nights. I know it’s terrible. If we do get the night off then we usually see a movie. I love seeing good movies!
Beverage of choice: Sonic cherry limeade, Iced Tea from Chick-fil-a, or if I’m out at night a frozen margarita 🙂
Words she lives by: Don’t sweat the small stuff! Life is too short 🙂
Favorite app: I have my phone near me at almost all times. It’s my lifeline. I love all my social media apps and I love Pic Collage for my photos. I also use my Shutterfly app all the time. I take tons of pictures so I love that it uploads my photos from my phone automatically and then I can create photo books or gifts easily.
Beauty product she can’t live without: I’m not totally into beauty products. I love me some good chapstick and I have to wear mascara. I live for a good dry shampoo too 🙂
Dream vacation: I’ve done some good traveling. I even got to student teach in London for a few months and it was so nice. My dream vacation would be to travel with my kids and be able to take them fun places abroad or even around the great US. Some day!
If she had more hours in the day, she would: SLEEP. I live for sleep. I wish, wish I could survive on hardly any but I have to have sleep.
Favorite thing to do in Plano: One of my favorite things is the Plano balloon festival in the Fall. We don’t go every year but when we do it’s so much fun! Being that close to all the balloons is really cool! I also love downtown, Plano. It’s come a long way the last few years and it’s fun to check out all the new places. Plano also puts on a fun July 4th parade. It’s fun to take the kids to and watch the cars go by. I love that in Plano we have access to so many things around us. Every suburb is nice around us and it’s fun to adventure into Big D sometimes too 🙂
