Things We Are Talking About {week of jan 5}

We have a private chat forum for our members - it's a place where we connect in the days between physical meetups, get advice, share ideas and talk about all things motherhood. And here's what was on the minds of our theCityMoms this week, the week of January 5th:

  • The bitter, bitter chill sweeping through Indianapolis this week. Thanks a lot Queen Elsa! We debated WHY some school districts close, why others don't, and reminded ourselves how when we were kids, we walked 4 miles to the bus stop… uphill… through snow drifts bigger than us.  
  • The tCM Organizer Team met this week to knock out the last of our 2015 planning - and it sounds like it will be a fun year! The buzz is this month we'll visit Cake Bake Shop of Broad Ripple for a moms afternoon out, partner withPottery Barn Kids at the Fashion Mall on a fabulous nursery design event + more. 

  • Despite the cold weather, school is officially back in session in the Indianapolis area. And welcomed.

  • New year, new us: We chatted about ways to simplify our lives in 2015 - like how to finally get that playroom under control - and it lead to this blog post 'How to simplify in 2015: A Mom's Guide.

  • We wanted ideas for how to save the beautiful artwork made by our kiddos, so it doesn't overrun the house. Momma April hasone of these. I mentioned the Artkive app. Enny plans to paste them into a scrapbook divided by year and grade {thanks Pinterest!}. How do you save yours? Tell us in the Comments. 

  • We visited a new-to-us spot in SoBro, Lava Lips. It's a hot and spicy tasting bar and BYOB is encouraged. Here's momma Michelle showing off a rather interestingly-named sauce. This was a fun and unique way to enjoy an MNO! {That's 'Moms Night Out' in theCityMoms-speak.}

  • And finally we realized that summer camp season is right around the corner, so we dropped the Indy's Child Summer Camp Fair on our calendars. It'll be Saturday, 2/21 from 11am-3pm at the Fashion Mall. 

We're off tomorrow to a shoe tying clinic with Nordstrom at the Fashion Mall and a family dance party at the Lawrence Branch Library, followed by breakfast at Northside Kitchenette and the Hot Jazz for Cool Kids concert at Central Library on Sunday. What are your plans for the weekend?
