Last Saturday, new and expecting mothers joined the Red Stick Moms Blog team at Baton Rouge General for a morning of pampering, delicious brunch and endless goodies. Our guests were treated to a beautiful spread of brunch options including seasonal fruit, eggs, grilled cheese, tomato basil soup and even chocolate drizzled bacon! Moms enjoyed tasting Truly Scrumptious Pretzel Crunch and even got to try a new Lemon Blueberry flavor! Thank you to Ambrosia Bakery for the cutest boy and girl onesie cookies. We also appreciated Ty-Ty’s Royal Ice joining us to serve up sweet, summer flavors if Italian Ice.

Ericka P.
Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.
