Two floors of vendors displayed all kinds of goodies from cooking to beauty to health and fitness, like the Zumba demonstration. Everything a woman would be interested in. There were even some great giveaways, like a $10,000 shopping spree! (and darn it! no we did not win....sniff sniff!)
The advertisement for the Expo teased about a secret musical guest star. It turned out to be the first winner of the tv show, the X Factor/USA:
Melanie Amaro. What a great singing voice! She sang a few songs to a very appreciative audience and then held meet & greets after the show with the lucky few who were chosen to meet her.
We also had other entertainment. There was local duo "The Fontaine Brothers" who turned out some great sounding music we enjoyed while strolling thru the exhibits. And then there were the "Men of Desire" who did a choreographed number for a very enthusiastic group of women attendees!
I saw quite a few looks on the runway that I think need further investigation. Will definitely be planning a trip to the Macy's ladies department soon! (Oh, sisters.....road trip anyone?)
I was also very excited to have the opportunity to meet Michaela Johnson, a host on the local morning tv show, "The Rhode Show". I love this show so much I set the DVR so I don't miss a single episode. I enjoy watching to see what Michaela is up to and where she'll be next!
So all in all it was another great outing with the sisters. We're always scouting for new adventures. You just never know where we'll show up next!
