I heard @TheBloggess’ Voice In My Head, and Could Not Stop Myself

An e-mail I just received:

Hi Shawn,

Celebrity parents Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli just released (exclusively to online shopping guide ThisNext.com) their daughters’ favorite / must-have “Back to School” items.

Items include everything from a BMX bike, to LunchbotsConverse to Hello Kitty – fashionable and kid-friendly, colorful and fun sums up the list!

Jennie and Peter’s beautiful daughters, Fiona (13 years old) Lola (9) and their youngest Fiona (5), are represented throughout the “Back to School” list with commentary on each explaining exactly why they LOVE each and every toy/accessory/school fashion.  Specifically, ANYTHING Hello Kitty and/or glitter oriented can be found throughout their house not to mention fashion staples such as the go-to kicks “Sparka-licious” Pink Converse and Levis Denim Jacket (which each of their daughters wear on a regular basis).

Below is a picture of the entire family at Disneyland including a quick snapshot of these items and for a full list, please visit ThisNext.com (http://www.thisnext.com/by/JennieGarth/).  Please let me know if you would like any additional information!



And yep, sure enough, there below was a picture of Jennie Garth and her family at Disneyland.

I could not stop what happened next, even if I had a thousand other chances to do so. I replied to Dave:

Hi Dave,

Thank you for the picture of Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli and their family at Disneyland. I love Disneyland. I have a friend named Jenny (ha ha, different spelling, but the same name, right? That can’t just be a coincidence) and in exchange for the picture of Jennie Garth, my friend Jenny has made the following available to you.

Let me know if you would like any more information about this.



P.S. Yes, I know I just gave whatever campaign Dave is part of a little space on my blog. I could have left the names blank or not linked to the links he linked. But I figured I owed Dave that much just for giving me a reason to think like The Bloggess for a second.

(Update: As has been noted in the comments, the e-mail suggests two of Jennie Garth’s three daughters are named “Fiona”. This is probably not true. I let Dave know.)
