February 18-24 in South Florida Tri-County Area

International Flirting Week

I began "Hot Mommas of Broward County" last year as a Full Time "Domestic Manager"- better known as "Stay at Home Mom" (that title does not do the job justice in my opinion). I was then Mom to a 4 and 6 year old and married to my wonderful husband of 7 years. We were new to the South Florida area and I was always in search of Fun, Cheap, Inventive, Original Events for our Family, and thus this Blog was formed in my many searches.

So much has changed since that time and those changes are forcing my to choose to discontinue writing for the Blog. I am now working Full-Time outside of my home and continue to work Full-Time in my home as a Domestic Manager. I am a bit of a perfectionist in my home and it is becoming more and more difficult to manage home, work and be the wife and mother I am called to be while also searching up to 300 sites a week to post events in the Tri-County Area. My oldest daughter has been diagnosed with some eye problems that can be corrected given the right amount of attention and treatment, this along with my other commitments to my family are a I am sure many of you other Moms out there understand.

It's with both regret and relief that I discontinue "Hot Mommas", but it is also absolutely necessary. I will continue to update the "Hot Momma's of Broward County" Facebook Page as I find great events worth sharing and I invite you to do the same. Please share with all of the Facebook Page Members any and all Family Centered Events and Activities in the Broward, Dade and Palm Beach Counties. 

I will continue to post through the month of February and beginning of March only the events/activities that I already have listed. Thanks for checking in each week and supporting this Blog.

Happy Planning......
