I am exhausted. This weekend was a whirlwind.
Friday evening my son’s school had their fall festival and I volunteered the trunk of my car for the trunk or treat portion of the festival. Basically I was required to sit in my trunk and hand out candy as children came by.
Left the fall festival and headed to the grocery store with the Mr. in tow. Always nice to have him tag along on those trips. Came home and went to bed because I had to get up bright and early to help Trina with a fashion show that she was putting on.
The clothes were sponsored by the Gap and were fabulous. Such amazingly cute clothes for kids this season.
Bernetta ripped the runway as the pregger model. Sorry I didn’t grab a photo of her dressed up but her makeup is fierce here.
Thank you Dea for this photo!!
A little before show prep
The show was a total success. The kids did an awesome job. If you can imagine the amount of work that went into coordinating something with 25 kids and borrowed clothes and shoes…yeah.
Congratulations to Trina for a job well done! Make sure you stop by her blog sometime this week. I’m sure she will have the official photos so you can see all of the cuteness.
Sunday I laid low, cooked some dinner and thoroughly enjoyed my additional hour. Did you?
How was your weekend?
Last week I had the awesome opportunity to host an event at P.S. for Aeropostale. This store is a version of Aeropostale that is geared toward elementary school aged children. I often frequent the store to purchase clothing for my son and when I was in there for the event I noticed that sizing starts at a 4 which means I can now shop there for both of my babies….which also means my sweet baby is growing up *weeps*
From now until Nov. 11, 2012 the brand has been so kind to offer an exclusive 20% discount that can be used online and in stores for your shopping pleasure. This discount coupled with the already reasonable prices….Christmas presents anyone?!!!
Want to see what I got? Check out the video. Hard to believe I got all of these things for under $100!!
I was provided compensation regarding this post. However, all opinions are solely mine...but you already knew this!!
I speak often about my treks to Tanger Outlet in Locust Grove to do some of that discount shopping that I do. One of the places that I frequent for shirts and pants for my son is P.S. from Aéropostale, a brand that caters to elementary school aged children.
P.S. from Aéropostale is currently running their second annual “What Makes You Smile T-shirt Contest” which is targeted towards children in grades 1-5. A winner will be selected from each grade. The top 100 finalists for each grade will be decided by public vote with the final winners being selected by P.S. experts.
The winners will have $1,000 donated to their school, and brand new P.S. t-shirts for their school’s entire student body. The winner will also receive a $500 P.S. from Aéropostale gift card and a quantity of their t-shirt design printed for distribution to their family and friends. In addition the winning designs will be featured on mannequins in P.S. windows during the month of March.
Winners will be announced in December with school presentations taking place in February and March.
Please visit pswhatmakesyousmile.com for entry form and template. Entries must be in by October 31, 2012. Voting will run from November 1-15, 2012.
As an added bonus I will be hosting an event at the P.S. from Aéropostale location at Tanger Outlet in Locust Grove this Thursday, October 25 from 4-6. If you are on the southside please come by and have your child complete their entry to get in the running!!!
Come check out P.S. from Aéropostale
See ya there!
I posted earlier about my opportunity to get up close and personal with children’s clothing brand Zutano while in New York for Blogher.
Upon my return I was sent these lovely pieces for Addison.
What I love most about this brand is how colorful and fun it is. The pieces are easily mixed and matched allowing you to create a number of outfits from just a few pieces. From leggings/socks to nursery decor, Zutano offers fun options for today’s child.
The wonderful folks over at Zutano are giving one of you, my fab readers $75 to spend with their brand. Clothing is for boys and girls and range in size from Preemie to 4T
Giveaway ends next Tuesday. GOOD LUCK!!!
I was provided products for review. As always and forever more, until the end of time all opinions are mine
