P.S. from Aeropostale opens at the Prime Outlets

If anybody knows me well, they know that I adore shopping. I Adore outlets and I ADORE a great deal!!! Outlet shopping is the best because you never know what you might find.

When Shelley and I were asked to come to the Grand Opening Party for P.S. for Aeropostale ( WHICH is pronounced Aero-post-ale FYI 😉 ) , I jumped at the chance.

When you walk into the store, you are immediately blown away at the bright and light and open space of a store that is packed full of kids clothes. The Displays were eye catching and the words written on the walls were adorable.

This kind of store makes me wish I was a kid/tween so I could have Owl Pajamas and  socks that had cool phrases&symbols on them!

P.S. For Aeropostale  is the sister store to Aeropostale. These clothes are geared towards the fashionable kid/tween set that are to small for Aeropostale and too big for baby clothes! They are affordable, durable and just plain ADORABLE! They carry trendy stuff, adorable pajamas, fun shoes and socks and even school uniform offerings.

Good GOLLY I wish this was in big kid sizes!

Now, since I have no little’s of my own , I headed over to the Big Kids Aeropostale where they offered us the same 20% off discount for the Opening of P.S.from Aeropostale Party! ( Thank you to Michelle and Ellen) I was able to pick up a bevy of things for a FRACTION of the regular mall prices!!!!

I picked up 2 pair of boot socks, 2 camis, a Rugby Shirt and 5 pair of knit boxer briefs for about $47.00 !!!!!!

If you are looking for a place to stock up on some goodies for school or christmas or any holiday, then PLEASE take a run over to P.S.for Aeropostale and Aeropostale at the Prime Outlets on International Drive!

Thank you to Jen for inviting us and for the ladies and gents at P.S. for Aeropostale for hosting us!!

We will be back!

Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music” Coming To The Bob Carr!

Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music” Coming To The Bob Carr! And your chance to win a Family 4 Pack of Tickets!

Music has always played a large role in our home and in Zoe’s development over the years. We always have some sort of music playing in our house whether its singing the ABCs, watching her favorite Sesame Street friends singing about numbers and feelings, or even having songs we would love to dance around the house to instead of ‘working’.  And you always hear the statistics about how children who participate in music and the arts tend to be more well-rounded and have higher GPAs, so I thought fostering a love of music early in her life was, and still is, important.

And when I heard that Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music” was coming to the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre in Orlando on Tuesday, October 9th, and Wednesday, October 10th, I knew that this would be a great opportunity to catch a wonderful production and reinforce her love of music.

Sesame Street Live Coming to the Bob Carr October 9 & 10
Sesame Street Live Coming to the Bob Carr October 9 & 10

Sesame Street Live is a larger-than-life, musical touring stage production featuring Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie…and more.  Each performance is 90 minutes of singing, dancing and audience participation, including a 15-minute intermission.  The perfect length for very young children, and are a great introduction to watching the arts!

Elmo, The Count, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Bert & Ernie and all their funny and furry friends are taking to the stage to share the magical world of music with children. When Jenny, the new Sesame Street music teacher, moves into town, her instruments get lost. Jenny’s new Sesame Street friends quickly come to her rescue, and they all discover “instruments” that they never knew existed…rubber duckies, trash can lids and even their own laps! The characters teach children, and themselves, that everyone has the ability to make beautiful music, whether they realize it or not. Don’t miss this opportunity to count along with The Count, visit Elmo’s World and do the Crumb-A-Rumba with Rosita and Cookie Monster at Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music.”
