It’s been ages since I’ve posted on a Saturday.
Don’t judge; I’m tired yo!
It’s family photo shoot season in my neck of the woods so I’ve been a busy little photo-snapping, photo-shopping mama!
Between driving all around the DC Metro area to take the photos, and spending hours straining my eyes in my basement office to up their awesome I’ve been swamped.
So, thanks to all these pretty people, my blog diggity has suffered a bit.
And so have you with my lack of finding-cool-stuff-to-give-you-because-you’re-pretty-and-smart-and-all-full-of-love-for-Dumb-Mom.
But don’t despair.
Because I’m back with a vengeance!
And a delicious, fit-making snack to help you look all skinny and stuff for the summer!
Because everyone looks prettier with a little cash on their side!
So, a while back I went to this super, maybe-even-a-tiny-bit-world-famous event.
Maybe you’ve heard of it?
It’s called the Running of the Brides?!
They are held at Filene’s Basement stores all over the country and they are a fun way for brides-to-be to hip check, pump fake, and pick-and-roll their way around the other shoppers to get a beautiful, expensive gown at bargain basement prices.
It was insane interesting…
And totally fun, even if I did have to stop, drop, and roll to not get bum rushed by a bride.
I got to mingle with the dress-hunting ladies and I met the awesome PR group for the big sponsor of the event, Slim Fast!
I talked to them about making a cupcake flavored weight loss beverage.
You know, something amazing this Dumb Mom could get behind.
They talked to me about their New Face of Slim Fast contest (which I shoulda won without even entering because I seriously have the perfect desperately-in-need-of-Slim-Fast face, ya know?!) and their tasty meal bars and between meal snacks.
I didn’t enter the contest.
But, I did get all up in the meal bars and snacks!.
And, while the snack bars are small (you know because they are meant to help you lose weight, not to be eaten a box at a time), they are pretty delish.
So surprising because diet lifestyle change foods sometimes just aren’t.
So I have some for you to win!
A whole mess of them in fact in all sorts of different flavors (like Chocolate Peanut Caramel, Fruit & Yogurt Trail Mix, Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond, Mint Chocolate).
And if the deal isn’t sweet enough already, my new buds at Slim Fast have thrown in a $100 gift card to Filene’s Basement.
I know, some of us in the great US of A don’t live anywhere near a Filene’s Basement.
And that’s too sad because they have some great deals in store.
But, for those of you who do (you can find out here: Filene’s Basement Locations) you should enter my contest.
Because I say so.
Let me make you happy.
It’s sorta my thing you know.
So how does one win a whole yummy pack of Slim Fast bars and a $100 Filene’s Basement gift card?*
