Build a Bear Giveaway

Last weekend, we were invited to a Build-a-Bear event to meet with Jamia Nash, who is releasing her new single, "Let's Talk About Love", in support of the Love.Hugs.Peace. movement that offers young people around the world fun and simple ways to show they care.

Jamia is an incredible singer and was featured in the movie, August Rush. Her song from the movie, Raise It Up was nominated for an Academy Award. She dazzled audiences at the 80th Academy Awards becoming the youngest African-American ever to perform on an Oscar Telecast.

The day we met her, she was also singing the National Anthem at the Mets game. Cool, right. She was so incredibly poised, sweet and patient posing for pictures. Hope she stays that way.
As you can imagine, my daughter was thrilled to go to an event where she could actually participate and have fun making her own creation. This trip was our third trip to the Build -A-Bear store but the second time visiting the store on 5th Avenue. Build a Bear is running an August promotion, if you can purchase a bear, 1 hanging outfit and 1 pair of shoes all for $29.99 so my daughter had a blast picking out her new pink and white bear, Sparkle Rainbow (what a name, kids are funny.)

The event wasn't all about my daughter as I had the opportunity to meet with other mom bloggers, Katja from www.simbacolifestyle.com, Onica from www.Blasianbabynotes.blogspot.com, Nicole from momtrends.blogspot.com, Kristina from www.kristinabrooke.org, and Yakini from www.prissymom.com.

A great group of women, so check out their sites.

My daughter has never been to Build-A-Bear but I know she would LOVE it. I would let her pick out her favorite, but I'm thinking the Asian Elephant or the Panda might be in her top picks.

Thanks!
