When back to school shopping goes awry: Can you relate?

Of all the things I thought I’d grow up to be in life, a cartoon character was never one of them. But, here I am! A cartoon.

It’s a little strange. And yet? My butt never looked so good so no complaints from me.

For the last year, I’ve worked with American Express in various ways, which is a joy; I love getting to partner with the brands I love and respect and actually use myself. Proud member since 19-mumblemuble. So as a spokesperson for the Amex EveryDay Credit Card (you know, Maroon 5, Tina Fey…me. Ha.) I am so excited to share my #EveryDayMoments video on the Amex YouTube channel that’s pretty perfect for back to school shopping season.

Those of you with five-year-olds — or just really opinionated kids when it comes to clothes — can probably relate to my story of back-to-school shopping with my daughter. Those of you with younger kids? Just you wait.

Thanks so much for watching, and I really hope it makes you smile. Even if you don’t watch it as much as Sage, who is nearing the 640 billion mark. Give or take.

Also, she wants you to know that I never actually picked her up like a cat.

You can check out Liz Gumbinner’s #EveryDayMoments back to school shopping video on the Amex YouTube channel, plus some nice offers for back to school discounts from American Express partners.

    OH, HOW I LOVED THIS! So absolutely adorable. No wonder Sage loves it! Also, they really nailed your real-life expression at 1:19. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

    (Also your butt is awesome in person. No cartoon can do it justice.)

    My boys could care less what I put on them, thankfully :)
