This show is the lead-up event to Walton Arts Center’s VoiceJam Festival in April. The audience will sing along to a subtitled screening of Pitch Perfect, first released in 2012 and directed by Fayetteville native Jason Moore.

ABOUT THE SHOW: This movie tells the story of a jaded college freshman who unwillingly enters the world of cut-throat, collegiate a capella, only to find that’s exactly where she belongs.

Not only will audience members get to watch and sing along with this hilariously-musical movie, but they’ll also help Walton Arts Center kick off its brand new VoiceJam A Capella Festival, with an announcement of the competition finalists taking place that night.

Practice your “Do-Re-Mi’s,” grab some popcorn and get ready for this special, one-night only event.

Giveaway: Ugly Duckling & The Tortoise and the Hare on stage + U.S. Pizza!

TheUglyDuckling-MotherlodeWebAd_266x375We love Walton Arts Center’s Kid Series and can’t wait to see The Ugly Duckling and The Tortoise and the Hare.

If you’d like to take your littles, we’re giving away a family four-pack to see the show + a gift card so your crew can enjoy U.S. Pizza Co.!

ABOUT THE SHOW: With the use of electroluminescent puppetry, two incandescent story-time adventures will be brought to life right before your eyes.

Lightwire Theater presents two cherished fables in a new and brilliant light. Full-bodied electroluminescent puppetry visually dazzles like moving sculpture in this glowing theatrical experience.

In an age where television, computers and video games reign, Lightwire delivers classic tales in a visually remarkable way with an engaging musical score ranging from classical to jazz to pop.

Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale The Ugly Duckling has helped generations of children understand one of humanity’s universal struggles, finding acceptance and inclusion without changing who you really are on the inside.

Lightwire Theater brings this story to the modern stage offering hope to us all as we root for the ugly duckling who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan.

Aesop’s fable The Tortoise and the Hare, now over 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, “Slow and steady wins the race.” This age old story comes with a modern twist for the kids of today, as the Hare allows himself to be distracted by texting and video games while the Tortoise wins the race due to his discipline and fortitude.

Recommended for ages 5 and up!

USpizzaABOUT THE FOOD:We love U.S. Pizza. They are a tradition in Fayetteville and we love that they’re right on Dickson Street, so you can walk straight there from Walton Arts Center. The pizza, salads, sandwiches and more have a unique flavor that’s not duplicated in NWA.

HOW TO ENTER: If you’d love to win these tickets and dinner gift card, throw your name in the online hat! Just click on the words “leave a comment” at the bottom of this post and tell us which storybook/fable from your childhood had the biggest impact on you — or the one that seems to resonate the most with your kids.

You can also email your answer to us at giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com.

Getaway Giveaway: Valentine’s Day stay at Hyatt Place + Ruth’s Chris + Kyya chocolate!

beach heart

OK, show of hands: who needs a mama break?

::Whoosh:: That was the sound of hands going up all across Northwest Arkansas.

Sometimes you just need to get away, but it sounds like crazy talk to say you’re going to fly or drive somewhere far away from the kiddos.

That’s when a LOCAL overnight stay makes sense. You get away for the night, recharge with your husband (or your besties) and still make it to your kid’s events — or work — on Monday. The manager at the Hyatt Place in Rogers totally gets it and she said bring it on! So today we’re giving away an overnight stay at Hyatt Place, which the winner will be able to use on Valentine’s Day night (which is a Saturday, how fun!) or another night if you can’t get an overnight sitter for the kids on that particular day.

This is the perfect way to “get away from it all” without going too far. Sound like something you’d like to win? We thought so!

kyya barAnd how about if we also include a Valentine’s Day basket of chocolate bars from an amazing Northwest Arkansas chocolate company? Kyya Chocolate is all hand made here in NWA and a portion of sales goes to orphans.

The owners are passionate about people — and chocolate!

The winner will receive:

10 Kyya Artisan Chocolate Bars - Each bar is made from single origin premium cocoa beans from a variety of countries including Ecuador, Uganda and Madagascar, just to name a few.

1 Kyya Super Dark Artisan Baking Bar – made from single origin beans from Ghana.

Oh, and one more thing!We’re including a dinner gift certificate courtesy of NWARestaurants.com to use at Ruth’s Chris! (The gift certificates from NWARestaurants.com are called “Penguin Bills,” and you can find them online by clicking here.)

ABOUT THE HYATT PLACE HOTEL:  We’re sure you’ve spotted this hotel from the interstate as you drive through Rogers (it’s at 4610 W. Walnut St). Their logo has the cute dots that we always notice when we’re over that way. We love the upscale vibe of this hotel inside and out.

While you’re relaxing at the Hyatt, you can enjoy the (coffee, beer and wine) bar, grab ‘n go items at the Gallery Market, the fitness center and more. And we know you’ll love your bright, airy guest room. Sleep late at the hotel, if you want, because the kids won’t be there to wake you up too early. When you do climb out of bed, you’ll be treated to a complimentary “A.M. Kitchen Skillet” breakfast at the hotel to complete your stay. Here are a few other luxuries:

Free Wi-Fi everywhere

Swiveling 42″ flat screen HDTV

Contemporary bathroom

Luxury skin and hair care

Mini-fridge

kyaa chocolate basketABOUT THE CHOCOLATE: The owners, Ben Butler and Rick Boosey, are all about chocolate in every form and they have built relationships with local farmers around the globe. They also pay them above fair trade prices for their cacao beans.

From hand-grinding beans from a single farm to hand-molding each bar, Kyya makes small batches of chocolate to maximize the flavor inherent in the individually-sourced beans. No artificial flavors or additives.

They are among a select few artisan chocolate makers who make their own cocoa powder and cocoa butter.

And this is so cool: They give 10% of their net profits to orphan care initiatives around the world “because life is about sharing the good things we have with others”. The Kyya team has 6 adopted children within their families. Love it!

As the Kyya guys say, “Help us share the good things: buy a bar, share and enjoy!”

HOW TO ENTER: If this getaway sounds great to you, it’s time to get busy and throw your name in the online hat. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re asking you to put your name in the drawing by writing a short “love note” to someone special in your life. You can write one to your husband or significant other, or you can write one to your kids, your friends, your parents — anyone who has a special place in your heart. Your note can be sweet, sappy, funny or anything in between. Winners are chosen at random, not based on the comment, so just be yourself. Just click on the words “leave a comment” at the bottom of this post.

Giveaway: Four 5K registrations for the Hogeye Marathon

Hogeye MarathonIf you’re a beginning runner — or you plan to start training ASAP for a marathon — you’ll like this giveaway.

We’ve teamed up with the Hogeye Marathon and four mamas will each win a 5K registration (value of $25 each). This is the chance to show your stuff — or just to challenge yourself. You can do it! It’s not about being the first one to make it over the finish line, it’s about taking on the challenge.

ABOUT THE RUN: The Hogeye Marathon & Relays, Inc. is a non-profit organization. The event is put on by volunteers and has always had the mission to give back to the NWA community, while promoting healthy lifestyles through running.  In 1977, the first marathon started at the University of Arkansas and went to the small town of Hogeye where it turned around and came back, making the 26.2 miles.

The course has since been changed to be more runner-friendly and covers the most scenic parts of Fayetteville. The Hogeye has a great reputation and gives participants a pride which is unmatched in Arkansas and beyond.

The fun begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Fayetteville Square. The marathon course will allow participants to enjoy scenic Fayetteville with many miles being run on the Fayetteville Trails. Local law enforcement officers will direct traffic, offering better safety for all runners. However there will be some active traffic sections marked by cones and volunteers. Aid stations providing Gatorade and water will be at every .5-1.5 miles, with extra FUN stops between. Maps will be available at registration and on this website.

  • Date for Hogeye Marathon: March 29, 7:30 a.m.
  • Kids’ marathon: April 11, 2 p.m.
