Last week I packed up the lil rascal- tot herself, miss Gemma, and headed to ye ol’ Mercato mall ( which I haven’t been to in ages) for the Virgin Family Festival event. Upon stumbling in search for my friend and her tiny tot, I felt so refreshed to hear the handsome vocals of one of the performing artists “Tim Hassall”. Afterwards we sat down to watch a few sushi rice demonstrations from Red Box, which I just had to try for myself. Then I chased Gemma over to the yummy “hey sugar” cupcake tower, where my wild cupcake eater attempted to grab and eat the frosting off 3 minis and I ate the base so there was, you know, nothng wasted. Then I grabbed a big red velvet one they made (themed for Virgin) and shared it with my friend.
Our daughters danced on stage, people clapped, I screamed, then the red box girls took them back and gave them popsicles to hold them back, for a few so we could enjoy the festivities. There was a fashion show, pop quizzes and a nail polish stand, and even a few red pepper photographers. It was quite the event, especially for just 2 hours. I really enjoyed myself, and loved all the goodies. Who wouldn’t?
