Hey Mama Hey! Happy Friday to all of my Fresh Families.
If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram (which you totally should be doing) you know, every Friday I hook you up with my Freshly Picked Events. 3 events that are hand chosen by myself. This week I am also providing extra deets including my two cents on each event.
Here is my video giving you an intro to this weeks Freshly Picked Events:

Mama Fresh Two Cents: Currency Exchange is my absolute favorite coffee shop so this event is a dream for me. Santa and Mrs Claus will be in the house for the second year in a row. Cex is also adding adding a toy drive this year. Bring an unwrapped toy for a child aged 3 to 12.

After you visit the reindeer, hang around for complimentary s’mores for you to roast at the fire pits. You can catch ObieQ and I petting the reindeer and snapping selfies, I don’t know who will be more excited me or Q?!?!!

Mama Fresh Two Cents: This is now a Fresh family tradition. Q is only 14months and he has such a good time at the museum. He was blown away by the HUGE main tree and the simulated snowfall every half and hour. More than 50 trees are on display and represent traditions from around the world. This weekend you can also see live cultural performances. ObieQ and I went a couple of weeks ago and we enjoyed making our own ornaments and seeing the talented kids perform in the auditorium.
So get out there and explore the city. When you attend a Freshly Picked Event and post on social media, use the hashtag #MamaFreshChi so I can see you and your little one living it up! Q and I will be at 2 out of 3 events so please come up and say Hey Mama Hey!!!!
