Giveaway: NYC Subway Line

Sometimes I think I am a rural, slow life down country girl.... then I wake up and realize that chickens, 40-minute drives to the nearest Target, and making my own butter just aren't for me. And when I've visited major cities, I feel energized and think, I could live here.

But really, I couldn't. It is just too darn expensive to be a SAHM in NYC. In part, that led us to settle in Lakeland, a semi-urban city with some wide open spaces nearby (like Kathleen). So, the next company I am going to share with you let's me have share a taste of urban life with my family without hurting my wallet.




Hip moms like myself in NYC have discovered NYC Subway Line apparel. They  make the "Birthday Shirt" which uses the NYC Subway "route indicators" as their subject. These shirts allow your toddler or preschooler to show how proud they are of their new age.






In these pictures, Charlotte is sporting her new '3' shirt which represents her new age and the route indicator for the Harlem to Brooklyn line. Definitely cool and trendy and you can see Charlotte is obviously very proud of her NYC Subway shirt, and of being 3 of course!

NYC Subway Line is an apparel and accessory company started by Lynne, a mom who needed to find unique birthday presents for her own toddler's birthday circuit. She approached the Mass Transit Authority in NYC and received a license for their indicators and maps just so she could create the number shirts and other subway items.


Lynne is so excited to participate in Birthday Bash that she is offering a NYC Subway Line Birthday Shirt to 1 lucky reader plus 10% off any purchase for everyone else. Just use code BIRTHDAY at checkout to receive your discount.
