I’m a Charter Chiquita Mom!
Oh boy! I have been sitting on some exciting news that I have been sitting on for some time. At first because mum was the order of the day and then because the menus were front and center in mind mind and next as I waited on the new community was live and ready for you!
What am I talking about? The new Chiquita Moms community, that’s what! In an effort to bring like minded moms together Chiquita has brought together some fabulously talented bloggers (Katie, Vanessa, Angie, Natalie and for some reason ME) to this community to lead you in everyday conversation about the comings and goings of raising your family in a healthy way.
We all know that this journey of being a mom can be a tough one. A rewarding one, but a tough one. Chiquita is here to provide you a community where you can engage with other moms traveling on this journey with you. And from what I hear there are going to be some great perks to being a part of this community (other than reading about the “real” me as a mom). So don’t hesitate – go join NOW!
Oh wait, before you go, here is a little bit about my trip to Chiquita headquarters recently and some more about the other great moms behind the new Chiquita Moms community!
Chiquita Moms Meeting of the Minds
The current Chiquita headquarters isn’t too far from my neck of the woods in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is where the meeting of the minds began. I had the privilege of meeting some of the staff from Chiquita as well as Empower, companies that I am quickly falling in love with. I also got to meet some of the other great bloggers that are going to be a part of this new project but more about them later.
We spent an evening together getting to know one another and eating. And eating. And eating. I had NO IDEA so many tasty Chiquita bananas in one meal! And really, the main thing you care about is the food I was served, right?
So without further ado. . .some food porn.
The Other Chiquita Moms
I love that the team for this project is so diverse in their writing style and area of expertise. And have I mentioned that they are all wonderfully delightful to be around? Because they are!
First up, Angie! After a long conversation of “Do you know ___?” we finally figured out that we *knew* each other from the ConAgra/The Motherhood campaign that we did together almost a year ago. Fun times. Angie was so sweet and I loved hearing stories of her squirrly family. She is like the mom next door. (The one you can borrow sugar from in a pinch, not THAT one!)
Next up, Katie! Katie started a mom’s play group community in Charlotte, NC and is a fitness enthusiast. She also makes quite a first impression! :) Poor Katie. I’m looking forward to getting to know her more and hear her great ideas on how I can get my sad shelf in shape. :)
Vanessa, the crafty. I say that like she is a notorious for her crafting skills, because she is! And because I am in awe of anyone with a crafty bone in their body. I can most definitely think up the projects but making them come to life is NOT my cup of tea. I’m planning to be sure I am good friends with Vanessa. ;)
And last but not least, Natalie. Honestly, I didn’t get to chat with Natalie too much because of a travel snafu she experienced. I hear she is going to be at Blissdom in a few weeks though so I am hoping that we can remedy that!
Okay, get on now. . .get to the Chiquita Moms community and get yourself on board. You don’t want to miss out!
