You and your mom love to do everything together, whether it’s watching “The Real Housewives” reunion specials or traveling to see the total solar eclipse this past Monday. You’re both obsessed with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who gave you all the info you needed to have that cosmic bonding experience together. More than “Real Housewives” throwing champagne at each other or even Tyson, random people squeal at how you two are a matched set, whether you’re in Sephora or in a Macy’s dressing room trying on matching slacks.
This weekend, cash in that winning combination during Mother/Daughter Day on Saturday, August 26 at the Southern Women’s Show at the Charlotte Convention Center. You and mom will experience a day of pampering, laughs and even get to meet Wonder Woman for a photo op, all presented by Southern Biscuit.
Here’s how to enjoy the day with your mother twin:
Join the Mother Daughter Look-A-Like Contest: If you’ve been told you look like your mom, this is your chance to finally get something out of it. Hosted by 107.9 The Link’s Ramona Holloway, who’s famous for being pals with her mom, you two may be among the lucky chosen 35 contestant duos. Judges will determine which twosome looks the most alike and they’ll win a grand prize of $500 cash and a portrait from Photographic Elegance. There are prizes for second and third place as well, so be sure to come register sometime between 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., when the names will be drawn, and the contest begins at 2 p.m.
Enjoy a Girls’ Day Out. After you’ve gotten in early to sign up for the contest, start your Saturday with a Mimosa or Bloody Mary at the cash bar. Cheers to Mother/Daughter bonding.
Meet Wonder Woman. You two loved the movie and cried happy tears when Wonder Woman kicked the bad guys’ tails, so now’s your chance to get a great pic with her to go over the mantle. Your mom will want to ask where’s Lynda Carter, but remind her that’s the campy version of the Wonder Woman universe and you two will watch that later on Amazon Prime.
