I don't know if I can post a link or not, so I'll just tell you about it. Last month my son & I were involved in an ad for llbean's 100th year anniversary - and the short video just got put up on their site!! I'm so excited, I had to share. Under 100 year, under their blog, it just Discover Something. We're the Wagners.

I apologize if this was not appropriate - I'm just bursting though.... we're just regular people so it was an incredible to be able to be involved in something like this! icon_biggrin.gif

You might have to click on the picture that says "the Wagners"

It was such an amazing experience. I can't believe we got to do it.

Wow, that is so cool! I always wondered if they are really using regular people or just hiring people. You guys look great! I would have that you were hired models.

So funny you would say that - I've been cringing when I see myself on their - why didn't I comb my hair, wear more make-up, lose more weight, etc. I don't look like my brain remembers me looking (like 20 yrs ago!). I think they normally do use models though - we were repeatedly told how nice it was to work with a real family. I think they made an effort to use regular people for this campaign.

You know - you never know what can come out of a bad situation. This all started with a miscarriage - which led to the original trip 8 years ago- which led to getting a naturalist to help us find salamanders - which led to a wet yucky day that llbean's clothes kept me dry during - which led to me writing my experience to them - which led to this (oh, and getting pg with my son after the trip, of course!) So you never never know where things will lead.
