I know that it’s no fun to hear, “everyone’s a winner.” Because, sure, it’s not ACTUALLY true. Some people get prizes and some people don’t. But in the case of #alisonspregnantladydanceoff I think we can agree that everyone who got to watch these PHENOMENAL entries was a winner! AM I RIGHT? And I hope that all those who entered FEEL how much joy they brought to so many, and how they helped empower people they don’t even know, and I hope that helps them feel like a winner, even if they don’t get free stuff. But maybe I’m just trying to compensate for the fact I can’t award everyone. I’m only ONE WOMAN!
This is the 5th or 6th? Instagram dance off I have hosted. I’ve done dance off’s for the general public, one for mamas, one for BFFs. Dance offs with big prizes and dance offs with random prizes. But Alison’s Pregnant Lady Dance Off exceeded all expectations. I could have never ever dreamed there’d be so many amazing entries. Thank you to all of you who publicized it and participated. It means so much to me! The contest was even featured on a local news channel! Haha.
There was NO way there could only be 4 winners! So we chose the 4 Grand Prize winners. But then also chose some honorary mentions to win specific prizes from shops who generously offered!
IF YOU ARE A WINNER PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org with your 1. Instagram NAME and real name 2. Your email address (yes write it out in the email thanks!) 3. What prize you won (obviously we’ll be double checking ALL of this!)
I’m linking to the IG videos of the winners, but a lot of these people will go private after the contest ends, so if you can’t see the video, that’s why!

$40 to LOST BOY GOODS
When Lost Boy Goods offered $40 to her shop for 4 honorable mention winners I DIED because LOOK HOW PERFECT these hand-printed swaddles are? We’ve got Drake! AND Yeezy! Lost Boy Goods is also offering 20% to her shop with the code: THEALISONSHOW for a limited time so be sure to hit her up!
$50 to Rags to Raches
Guys! It pays to have friends in the baby biz!!! Rachel’s rompers from Rags to Raches ARE THE BEST!!! They are so cute and easy to put on, I love them so so much. Plus most of them are unisex so when Ginger has grown out of it, I can put it on Rad! We’ve got lots of rompers over here, because you know how I feel about a good ROMP! I love Rachel and it was so generous of her to give $50 to her shop to 3 winners! She has SO many rompers with fun designs so be sure to check them out!
6 Month Subscription to Little Poppy Co.
This is SUCH a fun prize from Little Poppy Co. When you subscribe to their box, they send you 3 adorable bows each month! I love the simplicity of the bows, and that you can choose to have the bow on either nylon or an alligator clip! They offered a 6 month subscription for 3 winners! So SWEET! So I was sure to choose some mama’s who are having lil ladies! I also think this is SUCH a fun gift for an expecting mom! Thank you Little Poppy Co.
A Pair of Freshly Picked Moccs
My friend and owner of Freshly Picked, Susan, knew that I would be DYING inside, tearing myself up trying to choose winners. So of course she texted me late at night and offered a pair of her moccs to some additional winners. Her genoristy knows no bounds!!! Thank you Freshly Picked!
@jentreyhone (2 pairs because you’re having twins!)
I love the floral prints that KB Cute Designs has in their shop! But they also have lots of other fun designs and patterns! So I know these mamas will love having a beanie and blanket from them! Thank you KB Cute Designs!
Leather Triangle Mobile from The Little Tiny
The nice part about having my own shop that sells a baby item is that I could choose some additional winners! Haha. So I hope these mama’s like my leather triangle mobiles! If they don’t well, the make a nice gift!
OK!!! I know that’s a lot of beautiful folks BUT THERE ARE STILL SO MANY I LOVE!
I couldn’t believe how much time and effort people put into editing! So many beautiful montages!!! It was really, really tough to choose. I had the help of prize donors, and random people I asked, but ultimately it came down the the DANCE! What makes me and others laugh over and over, a few people with really touching stories.
I loved having this open to hopeful adoptive parents and included them in the prizes too! Thank you so much for sharing your stories with us.
Again, THANK YOU to everyone who entered. Thank you for putting yourself out there and being so fantastic. I’m so grateful that people were so positive, encouraging and uplifting! Honestly, when is the Internet THIS nice and kind?!
