As if I needed another reason to love this place, they have the most amazing Mother's Room for nursing mommas! Pammy and I went shopping with our little ones (who are boyfriend and girlfriend, but it's not serious yet) last week and we took a break at Nordstrom (Perimeter Mall location) to feed them.
This is a random video I found so you can see what it looks like - the Mother's Room at Perimeter is very similar (but actually a little bigger - ours had couches). Like in the video, the Mother's Room is set off from the Women's Lounge - so people aren't passing right by you with your boob hanging out. It's actually quite private. Which is a huge plus for me as I'm extremely modest! By far the most fabulous Mother's Room we've found to date at a retail establishment. I will have to go to my local Nordstrom at Mall of GA to see how theirs compares. ATL moms, any other great mother's rooms you have found around town? I've looked around a bit for listings online but haven't found anything super helpful. I know BRU has one... but (a) I hear it's gross, and (b) when am I ever in there long enough to need to feed Sam? Answer: Never.
Besides shopping areas, other places where a good mother's room is really nice are big conference centers and event facilities. There are times throughout the year when I'll be at a continuing ed seminar for a day or two and I will have to pump on site. Worst case, I can run out to my car and do it, but that's a pain in the arse. Surely some of these bigger locales have nice areas to pump? I have heard Cobb Galleria has a great mother's area. Can't confirm that though. If y'all know of any good ones, please share!
I'm a Georgia Bulldog! I met my husband at UGA in Geology 110 and the rest is history.
I'm a CPA, working as a tax professional at a local firm. But I'm also very creative and artistic. I use both sides of my brain.
I'm a Christian and I like to talk about God stuff.
My husband and I are smack dab in the middle of working our way out of debt. We drive old cars and brown bag it.
I'm a huge Dave Ramsey fan, so if you don't like him, I'll probably annoy you.
I love to talk about money and I love helping people with money problems. I'm working towards becoming a personal financial counselor/mentor through our church.
We have two dogs, Belly - an 11yr old border collie mix, and Gertie - a 6yr old lab/pit mix. They're our little loves!
We are members of Buckhead Church and volunteer as 2-to-1 mentors (the church's premarital program).
My husband and I started TTC our first child in November 2005. After a long battle, we finally gave birth to our son, Samuel Nolen, in January 2012!
I want to write a book on my struggles with infertility. And I talk a lot about our journey on this blog, but in no way do I let my infertility define me. This is not an infertility blog; I just want to be an encouragement to others fighting the good fight!
I absolutely love life and wouldn't trade our journey for the world. The struggles we have faced have made me the person I am today.
