Where's Willow? Lexington, VA (Day 2)

  
Today we took Willow to the Drive-in!


Jenna's dad runs a Drive-in called Hull's Drive-in! Tonight we are watching Inside Out and Tomorrowland under the stars! 



Willow got to see the projection room, she got to see how the movies are downloaded and started up. 


She also got to see our cool Inside Out popcorn tubs which are big enough for her to stand in! She loves the smell of the yummy popcorn popping! 


 This map is a map of the Drive-ins that are in Virginia and Maryland! 


Willow is sad that she won't be here next weekend when we show Minions but she was very happy to see Inside Out and Tomorrowland and got to see a Drive-in movie!


Willow got to see how the concession stand runs and help make some popcorn!  


She got to meet our cashier named Keely and watch the hot dogs on the roller and shared a hot dog with Jenna, with mustard of course! 



AG Truly Me Design Studio (Video)


Back in May, at the Truly Me launch, Mickey brought us an a amazing In Store Report of the Truly Me Design Studio from Chicago. She and her daughter were able to make their own designs. In her report she lists pricing and shows the various design option screens.

AG now has a video showing how this process works. Keep in mind this is only available at the NYC, LA and Chicago stores.

Style Lab "Fashion Angel" Watches at Michaels


I saw these at Michael's today and noticed that they not only looked like the AG ones, but were the same Fashion Angel brand. I noticed that the brand is based about of Wisconsin, same as AG. I though it was interesting and I wanted to share it with you- maybe others would find it interesting as well.

Where's Willow - Lexington, VA (Day 1)


Willow arrived safe and sound, ready to meet some new friends and see some great sights in Lexington, Virginia! Miss Jenna was very excited to have Willow visiting and quickly introduced her to her doll Alyssa. 




On Day 1, we took a little drive and decided to visit the VMI Museum! VMI stands for Virginia Military Institute, which is a Military College here in Lexington! Willow got to learn all about VMI. 



She got to see what the Barracks rooms look like TODAY and what they looked like many years ago. She got to see several different uniforms over the past several decades.



She even got to see General Stonewall Jackson's horse! His name is Little Sorrel and he is forever on display in the Museum! 








We also showed Willow around VMI and took some pictures.  Jenna's Daddy runs a Drive-in movie theater, and it's showing movies tomorrow! Willow seems excited to see how things work at the Drive-in!

Cover of the new July Catalog....
 I was just looking trough the new catalog and on page 37 - Rebecca's sideboard is shown for $130. I find this odd because it has been on the last chance sale online for $60 and is still on sale online right now.
