The story:
During lunch about three weeks ago, one of my co-workers Amanda Gregor found an article in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press - "Hot Mama, an upscale boutique for moms and moms-to-be announces they are looking for a Twin Cities pregnant woman to star in their first ever national magazine ad in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine. Come to the Saint Paul Hot Mama store on Saturday, Feb. 23 and get your picture taken between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Hot Mama will pick their five favorite people and those five finalists pictures will be posted to their website, where people can vote for their favorite hot mama, winner will star in their national ad!" She immediately said to me in the lunchroom - "Marisa, you have to try out for this!" Haa! I was a little leery…I mean wouldn't they be looking for someone more pregnant than me? Anyway, I brought the clipping home and read it to John. He was so excited and told me that I have to go to it. Ha! So we planned on it. Saturday, February 23 - we went to the store and I got my picture taken. I was number 70. WHOA, there were a lot of people. I later found out that 106 people tried out! John and I had a fun day. We went to lunch…and walked around the area. Fun place. On Wednesday, February 27 - someone from the Hot Mama store called me to tell me that I was picked as one of the five finalists! Oh my goodness!!!! I couldn't believe it!!

Some store background:
Hot Mama opened its doors in November 2004, in the chic 50th and France shopping district, now they have grown to six locations in MN, three in Illinois, one in Michigan and one opening soon in Colorado. They built their theme around motherhood, creating an upscale boutique that nurtured, encouraged, and supported mothers while offering only the most contemporary clothing to the fashion-forward mom. Hot Mama's team of buyers and stylists pride themselves on finding the best fit for women.


Who won?

Marisa, of course.
