Shopping Deal at TJ Maxx

I was at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago and came upon a fabulous find I had to buy. By now almost everyone has heard of Vera Bradley. They make handbags and other accessories in a quilt style with vibrant colors.  




I have been wanting a Vera Bradley handbag for a while now. Unfortunately I could not afford the high price tag. That is, UNTIL I found one on clearance for $32.00. Yup you heard right.  The handbag has my favorite colors of pink, coral, turquoise and white. The handbag compliments all of my summer outfits. I took it off the rack as soon as I saw it. This was an awesome find and marvelous price that I just had to share with you all. 

I can't wait for my next shopping trip to TJ Maxx and the next fabulous finds.

Bronx Zoo Summer 2012 LEGO® WILDLIFE FOREST
Exhibit and Building Zone
Open from July 7 – September 3, 2012


This summer, journey to The Bronx Zoo's Wild Forest to check out the giant LEGO sculptures of tigers, flamingos, gorillas, and other exotic wildlife, then visit their real-life counterparts around the zoo. Build your own LEGO sculptures at our construction zone, and enjoy Wildlife Theater performances and the hit musical puppet show, Avenue Zoo.

The entrance to the exhibit area will herald this temporary LEGO themed exhibit and the location will be transformed to immerse the visitor in an engaging experience with the structures and the story they tell. The story will be reinforced at each of the gates with LEGO themed navigation signage that becomes the vehicle to promote the exhibit at both the entrances and as a way finding symbol throughout the park.   Each structure will be enhanced with design elements that reinforce the animal’s particular habitat. At each location, visitors will not only be able to view the wildlife sculpture, but also learn about WCS’s global work. The program reinforces the value of our Zoo wildlife as ambassadors to conservation.
