Gap Inc. Fashion Show

I was asked a few months ago if the boys and I would be willing to participate in a fashion show our local Gap was putting on to raise money for the Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter. I said yes right away because I knew it would be a fun event and for such a great cause. The show was at 7:00 so I told them Bennett would be out because there was no way he would be able to make it through it since that's basically his bedtime. I knew Campbell would be game though so we put it on our calendars and looked forward to the big event.
The fashion show was this past Friday night. Campbell and I had to be there a little early so we would know what all we needed to do. It was so fun to catch up with other local bloggers and influencers and I was able to meet a girl who was also walking in the show that I've gotten to know through Instagram but have never actually met before.
We got a babysitter for Bennett so Scott could come and watch us. Once Campbell and I changed into our special clothes, we took a few photos on the red carpet then were able to mingle with everyone and participate in the silent auction before we had to take our place for the fashion show.
Once our turn came, Campbell did great! He happily walked down the runway and even wore the sunglasses I put on him. We had a slight hiccup when Campbell saw Scott at the end of the runway. He wanted his daddy. But I scooped him up and carried him the rest of the way and he was fine.
The show ended up raising over $10,000 for the shelter and the event had an awesome turnout! They're already talking about plans for next years event!! We were so honored to have been able to participate. We had such a fun evening!
