Hi! I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a member of the Tampa Housewives Community. If you have not signed up for our emails, please do so here!
I know a lot of you joined the community to attend our in person events to meet new people and/or network for your business! I get it! Virtual is not the same as in person but it's all we have for now. I hope you will join us for our September 8th event, Girls' Night In Empower Hour!
This is an empower hour so you will walk away learning more about yourself and each other. We are using Zoom Video Conference to host this meeting. You can join from your phone or computer but be ready to have your camera on. This is an interactive experience! No Lurkers! You will have the opportunity to share about you as a person and your business (if that applies.)
The Housewives in the City brand is work on some new ways for us to engage and help local businesses! I will be sharing more in September!
Know that if you ever have questions—I’m only an email or online message away.
Love & Light,
GET OUTSIDE! NATURE IS NOT CANCELED!
I make it a point to go outside for at least 30 minutes a day! Sometimes a morning bike ride alone or with the kids before it gets to hot. Sometimes it's eating lunch or reading outside on a blanket. Sometimes it's a visit to the community pool or a visit to the beach during the weekday when it's not busy. Sometimes it's a walk in the park. We will need more Vitamin D and I promise you it's soothing to the soul!
EXPLORE TAMPA BAY! PLAN A STAYCATION!
For July 4th weekend, I planned a staycation for my family and we had a special weekend mostly at home. Friday, we went our community pool but I made it special by pulling out the big fun floats that we normal don't use. That night we watched Hamilton for the first time. I got candy and popcorn to create the movie experience. When the kids went to bed I watched another movie that I had wanted to in theaters back in February. On Saturday, We went to Best Richardson African Diaspora Literature Museum & Bookstore. we paid for a private tour so we were the only ones there and then we went to Al's Finger Licking Good Bar-B-Que which has outside seating These are two places that I have been wanting to try but you could pick any place where you had been wanting to try. Saturday night, we had a 5pm happy hour at home and binged Netflix. Sunday, we had plans to go visit the murals in St. Pete but no one was in the mood to get dressed so it ended up being PJs, ice cream cones and Netflix day! We watched the whole Babysitter's Club series as family! The thing that made the weekend special for us was that my mom stayed with us at our home. If you have someone in your bubble that you have been seeing, try doing a sleepover with them! Just pretend you are on vacation so do things you normally only do on vacation and do not work!!

Let's do this,
Our team had the chance to check out ¡CUATRO Restaurant , from the tasty meals to scenic windows you really can't go wrong with golf course dining. Located on the TPC Tampa Bay golf course ¡CUATRO is an up and coming space for the best event planning needs. The second we walked in we were smacked in the face with the freshest smells of seafood and lunch treats.
There is a wide variety of yum yums to appeal to any palate. Starting with the Garlic Mussels and Feta Bruschetta we loved every bite. The Garlic Mussels comes with a delightful creamy garlic white wine sauce and crostinis for dipping. I was licking my fingers after this one. Putting feta with bruschetta should be the new thing, I brought extra home for a post lunch game. Both of these items are on the happy hour menu from 4-7pm for only 5$!
Following this we ordered a few entries that we could not resist. Our favorite was the Seafood Po Boy! A Nola favorite, we chose shrimp over the crawfish though. This came with the most tasty fries myself has ever had. Next we chose two items from the ladies night menu which is every Thursday. Two meals and an appetizer for 25$ ! The TexMex Chicken Penne is sauteed with peppers and corn and blew us away. Such an amazing palate pleaser. Next we had the carne asada which was a great gluten free option for my ladies! Closing dinner we ordered Beignets and tuxedo cake! You know me ladies I love the desert and these two did not disappoint!
The views are absolutely stunning here and I definitely recommend grabbing a drink and a bite at ¡CUATRO. They are currently open for takeout! https://www.facebook.com/CuatroTampaBay Check out their Facebook page for the latest specials and menus.
We are rescheduling our event at this space. Click here to RSVP until then stay healthy and safe my friends!

Full disclosure: I never would have made it through my first event without Kerri! This photo is us on the Hotel Zamora 360 Rooftop on November 19, 2019. She has been a part of our events for years in many ways! I thought it was appropriate to end Women's History Month was a woman who is truly part of our tribe!!

Kerri Pagliarini: I help women to feel sexy, energized, and create a healthy lifestyle that actually lasts (...and to kick their sugar habit!). I was drawn to this work after struggling with hormonal issues for years. At the point that I ended up in the hospital needing surgery, I decided it was time to make some serious changes.
Searching for answers, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and found what I had been looking for. I began coaching women who had hormonal issues, but quickly realized that all the women had something in common. And that was an unhealthy relationship with food and mostly sugar! I began teaching classes on how to effectively kick the habit! Later I was introduced to the TLS weight management system and the program was based on low glycemic index eating - the same principals I was teaching my ladies!

Junise Belizaire-Color Me Abstract was birthed after realizing some of the obstacles families face when trying to foster togetherness. Whenever I got together with friends, the complaints were always the same...going out was an inconvenience because you had to find a sitter, there was not much to do locally, and then there was the expense at the end. This pained me because I believe family is the foundation of our community so I was motivated to close these gaps.
