Build-A-Bear Workshop’s 15th Birthday!! #FriendsCount
Hubby and I have been trying to think of the perfect gift for our boy's 4th birthday that is coming on Thursday. We think we've narrowed it down to a bicycle or an outdoor sports set, but we still don't know what we are going to do on Thursday evening.
This morning Hubby said "what about B.U.I.L.D. A. B.E.A.R.?" – heck, yeah!!
(we spell things out when we don't want him to know)
So, when I got this news today, I was super-duper excited!!
Build-A-Bear Workshop is celebrating two major milestones this year!!
The first milestone is their 15th birthday!!
The company began in the St. Louis Galleria on October 27, 1997 and has grown to become a global brand while being recognized as a company with HEART .
The second milestone is the celebration of selling their 100 millionth furry friend!!
(and I thought WE had a lot of bears at our house)
In honor of their birthday and helping create 100 million best friends, Build-A-Bear Workshop wants to spread the word that
Whether your best friend is one of your longtime gal pals, NEW BLOGGING BUDDIES, your spouse, your pet, or even your teddy bear, we can all agree that our friends have made our lives so much better.
I just can't say enough about the friends I have made in the past six months of blogging. Whether I am learning about the newest products, finding out how to be a better mommy, joining all the best giveaway hops, joining a fellow blogger to host a giveaway hop, partnering with a blogger for the Newbie Blog Hop, learning something new about raising a great child, looking to save some money, finding some great store matchups, taking a coupon class, connecting with another mother of a young boy, hearing about new movie releases, or learning to love myself and my husband better, my blogging buddies are the BEST!!
