1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (FLWS) visited the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City’s Times Square this morning to celebrate all Mothers as a part of the company’s “Spot a Mom” campaign for Mother’s Day 2010. The multi-channel marketing campaign’s initiative is to ensure that every mom is recognized this Mother’s Day. My kinda company!

My friends Carol and Wendy were also invited.

Last minute additions were Nichelle and Nikki!

I was invited along with several other mommy bloggers to participate in the opening ceremony. We took several pictures before the market opened and then went outside to see the video play for all of Times Square. Totally surreal.

I don’t really talk about my life before blogging, but I used to be a financial consultant for several years. My first job was with Ernst and Young in 1998 and that was right at the beginning of the start up BOOM. The NYSE used to have one IPO after the other and all my friends and I would head on up the block to get bags filled with goodies. It was such an amazing few years and it has left me with an affection for the market as a whole. So, this was really a treat for me. I am so happy I made it into the city today. 🙂

Mother’s Day is right around the corner (ahem – talking to you Bill). It’s not too late to get your mother a beautiful bouquet of flowers and what better company to rely on than 1-800 Flowers!

Few more pics under the cut.
