March 11 - March 17 in South Florida (Final Post)

Well, the day is here, this is my last post for "Hot Mommas of Broward County".

The decision to discontinue posting is very bitter sweet- I absolutely LOVE finding new and exciting activities and events to share with the Tri-County area but I love spending time with my family more (I am stretched so thin we rarely even have the opportunity to any of the events I post, lol). You can read a bit more about my decision to discontinue posting HERE if you would like.

I will continue to post events and activities in the South Florida Tri-County (Broward, Dade, Palm Beach) area on the "Hot Mommas of Broward County" Facebook Page. You can join the Facebook Page to keep up to date on events and also post any Family Friendly events you may want to share with others.

During the Fall and Christmas seasons, I will update all of the Pumpkin Patches and Extreme Decorated Christmas Homes in our area.

Thanks for coming back every week and using this site to plan for your family. As always, Happy Planning!
