So, on the 10th day we received a package from Barbie which we assumed would contain her prize. Upon further inspection, however, we quickly realized that the package was much too flat to be a Barbie or any other toy. With a slightly dismayed Avery at my side, I opened the package…
TO BE CONTINUED…
Just kidding! I’m not that cruel.
I pulled out a letter from Barbie and a small stack of papers. “SO not a Barbie doll,” I thought to myself as I smiled at Avery. “This better be good!”
I read the letter.
I read the letter again.
I looked through the papers.
I read the letter for a third and fourth time.
According to this letter, Avery’s magical code that I had entered into the Barbie website, had been put into a second chance drawing for the Pink Ticket Barbie Party. So when one of the winning codes was never registered, they drew another in the second chance drawing. And who’s code do you think they drew?
She won an all expenses paid trip to the Barbie Headquarters!
So, on Friday morning, a car is being sent to pick up Avery, her friend, and I. We will be taken to a super posh hotel in Manhattan Beach. Then, on Saturday we will be escorted to the Barbie Headquarters where the girls will enjoy an entire day of Barbie fun which will include the following…
They will go to the Barbie design center and meet the folks behind Barbie, and will get to customize their very own Barbie to take home.
They will meet Barbie’s stylists and have makeovers! After said makeover, they will star in their very own fashion show and strut their stuff on the catwalk.
They will get to meet Barbie in person and have pictures taken with her. Pick me, pick me!
They will have the opportunity to rock out like a rock star on stage, be a ballerina, and frost cupcakes like a gourmet chef. Word!
And after all the fun activities are over, they get an advanced VIP screening of the newest Barbie movie coming out – The Mermaid Tales.
And… Avery still got her original prize in the mail just the other day!
I, of course, get to join in the pinktastic activities… and sign a super fun Confidentiality Agreement! WooHoo!!
Not too shabby, I say.
Moral of the story – Enter those codes, truffles! You never know what opportunities might fall into your lap.
I’ll post about our little Barbie Retreat next week. And, hopefully, I won’t get tossed into jail for sharing something I’m not supposed to.
