Macy’s Holiday Window Unveiling, DC

Hey Cuties,

The weekend is upon us; I imagine you are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Have you planned out your menu? If you aren’t cooking have you decided on your travel arrangements? The kids only have school two days next week. That in and of itself means I need to prepare my nerves.  All this extended parent and kid time can be exhausting for all of us. To kick off the holiday season we hung out with the folks at Macy’s last weekend.This was our first time attending the Macy’s holiday event so I took a pre-game photo of the kids. That coupled with the fact that they are growing like weeds.

Nori & Nasir

The stage was set up and ready when we arrived. It was a bit windy and chilly out.

Macy’s elves did a great job setting the mood. They were seriously dressed up as elves; they gave out these cute signs, Snoopy ears, coloring books and more.

Grammy award winning singer, Chrisette Michele, Empire’s V. Bozeman and singer and songwriter Adrian Marcel.

After the young folks got us in the Christmas spirit a few celebs took the stage.I’m a huge fan of Chrisette Michele so I always love to hear her song. Adrian Marcel was new to me but I appreciate his performance.  If you’re a fan of the show Empire then you probably recognize V. Bozeman.

V. shared my picture and this sweet message to her fans. {Faint}

I woke up to this and I was floored, what a sweet message and a share to her 17,966 fans. V. Bozeman and I officially go together. hahahahaha

Window Unveiling

Macy’s teamed up with the Peanuts this year and I love it. Nori and I saw the Peanuts movie and it is so cute for the holiday season. I love to hip the kids to the “classics”.

She did smile for Santa.

This is the first time my daughter has ever taken a picture with Santa. She looks perfect, I’m glad she stepped outside of her comfort zone.

    I love how Macy’s always goes all out. I am going to be in NYC later this week and I can’t wait to see what they did with their store this year.

  3. Joanae "Naetorious" King

    Awwwwww!This is so sweet! I wonder if I missed the one in Atlanta!

  4. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That sounds like so much fun. Ever since I was a little girl, Macy’s has always meant Christmas to me.

  5. Terri Ramsey Beavers

    What a fun time and your photos show just how special it was. I wish I lived closer to a Macy’s because I love their products.

  6. OurFamilyWorld

    I love the photos. What a fun event for the whole family. You all looked like you had a great time.

  7. Ariel

    Listen, can I come with you next year?! Lol it looks like you guys had a great time. Thanks for sharing.

    You kids are ADORABLE! I have always wanted to see a Macy’s window, they do such an awesome job of decorating! They must have so much fun doing it.

  9. Liz Mays

    Aww Macy’s did an awesome job! It sounds like you guys had a great time. I need to make sure to check out a Macy’s while their decorations are up.

  10. Rebecca Brosemer Miller

    It is definitely too early for me to be in the Christmas spirit, but I have a good reason. I just got married last week and just returned from my honeymoon.

  11. Aisha Johnson Adams

    I see you and the fam had an all access pass. It looks like a great time, and your kids outfits were picture perfect.

  12. ricci

    I love your daughter’s pic with Santa!! She’s so cute!! We don’t have a Macy’s in Arkansas so I am super jealous you got to go to the holiday unveiling!

  13. alexandria

    I love store windows around the holidays. I was in NY around Christmas one year, so pretty. My daughter cant wait to see Santa.

  14. Erin

    Oh what a magical time! I love this time of year and the Macys Holiday festivities definitely adds to it!

  15. Shawana

    Macys is one of my favorite department stores. They have some of the best holiday displays. Chrisette Michelle has one of the best voices in the business. The altos and sopranos in that choir was on point. Glad you and your family had a great time.

  16. tiaras and tantrums

    oh how lucky you all are – i bet that was so much fun!! I would love to do that someday

  17. Jaye@Curvatude

    Great pics Mimi. It looks like a really fun day. I was going to go to the opening here in Chicago but did’t make it although I don’t think we had as jam packed a lineup as this.

  18. Wood Arts Universe

    The kids are so cute and it looks like they’re having so much fun at Macy’s Holiday Window unveiling. Yep, thanksgiving are fast approaching, I know you can do it!

  19. Maggie Branch

    Macy’s windows are always beautiful for Christmas time. Growing up I would go to Macy’s Herald Square, but I am so glad other city’s Macy’s go all out on their windows also.

  20. lisa

    What a fantastic unveiling! Looks like you guys had a fabulous time and I love that you got to see Snoopy and Santa!!

  21. kita

    macy’s does the best things around the holiday time. I marched in the Thanksgiving parade when I was in the high school band and it was so cold I quit the band the next year lol

  22. Rosey

    You’ve got me curious about Step Afrika. And hurrah for seeing Snoopy. 🙂

  23. Lynndee

    I must admit, I am one of those crazy people who already decorated before Thanksgiving. Our tree was up since Sunday. It’s actually a tradition that I’ve created since I got here in the US – decorating on the weekend before Thanksgiving. 😀

  24. CourtneyLynne

    Omg how fun!!! I just love Macy’s. Just wish there was one closer to me here in WNY.

  25. Chubskulit Rose
