Mom Prom: Bahama Mama Recap

Mom Prom: Bahama Mama RECAPLet’s just say that Friday, May 13th was a lucky night for us all! We were able to get away for delicious food and adult beverages completed with shopping and dancing at Mom Prom! The ambiance was tropical, the air was breezy and our beautiful venue was filled with lots of lovely moms who make what we do all worth it. It’s truly one of the best things in the world to mingle with other Red Stick moms in our Baton Rouge community and catch up with new and familiar faces. We send out a very special thank you to Guichet Creative for the beautiful graphic design work for this event!

The Main Library is lovely, spacious and perfect for any event. They are extremely accommodating and have so many convenient options to offer. As usual, the staff was incredibly helpful and we are always impressed to see the behind-the-scenes hard work that goes into making programs for children and adults in our community a success. We are so grateful for all of the resources that our library offers to the greater Baton Rouge community.

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.
