Thursday, June 6th
We woke up Thursday morning well rested and excited after a relaxing night at the posh Ambassador Hotel in Kansas City. Thanks to the fabulous manager at the Ambassador, Micheal Hammontree, the truck and trailer were parked directly in front of the hotel- an ideal location for the girls, advocates, mentors and curious onlookers to spot us!
We had a wonderful day today chatting and laughing with the the girls, advocates, foster parents, and mentors during the shopping experience. The ladies were excited and gracious- so many were taken back at the authenticity of the mobile boutique- the decorations, fitting rooms. It was truly wonderful to see the girls' elation as they found clothing and accessories that they felt great in. In particular, Miss Me jeans were a huge hit today among the girls!
And now we are leaving Kansas City, driving through Iowa, headed for Lincoln, Nebraska! Looking forward to another great day tomorrow. Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog post re: our stop in Lincoln, Nebraska.
