Are you ever too old for stuffed animals?  I think not! My "Best Friend" was made this weekend when I went to a Build-A-Bear Workshop.  The best part about my new bear...she was FREE!

While walking around the mall, my sister and I decided to go into Build-A-Bear to see what it was all about.  I had never been into a Build-A-Bear workshop before and have been wanting to make one for years, but what 28 year old goes into a Workshop to build a bear without a child in tow? While we were looking at the wall of unstuffed animals, a Bear Builder (that's what I am calling him) came up to us to see if he could help. I told him that I was just looking at the options they had for bear building because I have been wanting to make one for years and that Building-A-Bear was on my "30 Before 30" list.  Not prepared to actually Build-A-Bear that day he threw me off guard when he said he would give me a bear for free! Who am I to turn down a free Bear?

Step #1 - Choose Bear and begin to build

Step #2 - Proceed to Fill 
Step #3 - The Heart Ceremony. Yes, I rubbed a silk heart on my body so my bear could possess qualities like mine!

Step #4 - Insert your Bears heart
Step #5 - Dress and name your new Best Friend...Birdie Thirty was born on 4/27/13.

After the birth of Birdie I went to the cash register to pay for the outfit I dressed her in.  The Bear Builder checked me out an proceeded to give me Birdie's outfits for free too! You rock Bear Builder!
So just in case Seth MacFarlane's tale of a child's stuffed animal coming to life is true...I can't wait to be your Thunder Buddy Birdie!
