PLUS a Mom’s Minute Out Giveaway!
Question: What happens when three friends want to spend an evening out together? Answer: Complete chaos!
Allyson and her two besties just want a night of good food and adult conversation. No kids. No Happy Meals. Just three grown ups doing grown up things…and wearing high heels, of course. But things don’t always go as we planned and for these three moms the night brings unexpected turns. Add a misplaced baby, a tatoo-parlor owner, a motorcycle gang plus one dumbfounded cabbie, and you’ve got one crazy night.
What I liked about Moms’ Night Out…
A) This novelization by Tricia Goyer is true to the film. Funny and heartwarming, Tricia really captures the essence and voice of these women. I’ve always loved her books and Mom’s Night Out is no different. She did an amazing job taking one of my new favorite movies and turning it into a read that had me smiling from ear to ear.
B) Oh so relatable! I’m a mom so Mom’s Night Out really resonated with me. I most identified with Allyson’s character. Sometimes there are days I too have to crawl into the closet and cry over an empty bag of chocolate (empty because I just ate the whole thing!). I felt the characters in Mom’s Night Out were real, not some ideal picture of what a Mom should be. I loved being reminded that we’re all flawed and perfection isn’t what’s important. Love is what counts, especially when it comes to our kids.
C) Books to movies. Movies to books. I love when good things come in pairs. I’m visual so I love seeing a favorite story on the screen, but I’m also an avid reader so having a novelization of Mom’s Night Out on my shelf makes the story twice as sweet.
Motherhood. It’s not all roses and bubble baths, you know. Not even on Mother’s Day. Kerri Pomarolli’s new devotional Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions to Help You Survive will do just that…help you survive. Funny, quirky and holding nothing back, Kerri Tells it like it is. Kids are outspoken. Husbands forget things. Disney princesses make us cry. This is life as a mom. Inspired by the true-to-life movie, Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss will provide that little bit of sanity you need to get through the day.
What I liked about Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions to Help You Survive
A) It made me laugh and nod my head. Reading it was like talking to a friend. I kept thinking, “You too huh? I’ve totally been there, Kerri.” The author really nailed this one on the head. Her experiences have been mine. It was nice to know it’s not just me. Every mom deals with these things.
B) The cute, gifty design. Okay, so “gifty” isn’t a word, but I’m making it one today. Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss is prefectly packaged for gift giving with its hard cover and compact size. Give it to a mom in your life, whether it be your own or someone who just really needs a break. Believe me, she’ll thank you for it.
C) Short entries. Sometimes, all we have is a minute, whether it be in a locked bathroom or the drive-thru line at Starbucks. Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss is the perfect take-along devotional. Take it to the park or a little league game. Each devotion is only a few pages long. You don’t need a whole night out to enjoy it. A coffee break will do just fine.
