Meet Stefany Allongo, our August Mom of the Month!
Stefany is mommy to the cutest peanut named Emiliana. Originally from FL, we are so happy Stefany has made Milwaukee her new home! This busy Mama is a wedding planner but still makes time to come to class. Developing preeclampsia and delivering 10 weeks early she has certainly overcome many obstacles. Her positive attitude and go-getter demeanor is contagious! Thank you for being a part of this Village, Stefany. We love having you!
What is your fave thing about Stroller Strides? The camaraderie of being with other moms. We are all going on the same journey. Being a first-time mom and having a NICU baby, I need all the advice I can get :)
What is your favorite exercise at Stroller Strides? Oof! They are all great, but my favs are the ab series and any kickboxing moves. I have such muscle memory from TaeKwonDo that makes any kickboxing moves so much fun.
What is your favorite part about being a mom? Now that the stress of the NICU is behind us, I'm loving just being able to snuggle her without worrying setting off any alarms. Also, she starting to really interact with me. It's so fun to see her take in the world. You can see the wheels turning in her mind as she tries to figure out something new.
Favorite thing to do when baby is napping? SLEEP :)
What is your favorite thing to do as a family? We love going to the zoo and reading.
What is something about you that someone may not know? I'm a diehard, college football fan! Love watching the Miami Hurricanes, Clemson Tigers and Wisconsin Badgers tear up the field. So much fun! Also, I adore going to the theater to watch a musical and enjoy having a great meal. Lastly, when I have time, I relish sitting down with a good book while sitting by the pool.
What is your favorite healthy and unhealthy food? The Green Goddess Salad from Panera is soo yummy and my favorite healthy meal. Indulging in Ice Cream is my unhealthy vice. Wine totally counts as both healthy and unhealthy, right? ;)
What is your favorite color? Orange! (Go 'Canes and Tigers)
What is your favorite song or artist? Love listening to Jimmy Buffett (I'm a Florida Girl), Pitbull (Again...Florida Girl) and Justin Timberlake (his songs are just so catchy)
What TV shows are you currently watching? "Once Upon a Time" is my absolute favorite. I also enjoy "Marvel's Agents of Shield" and "Jane the Virgin"
