Name The Dress Thursday: 18

We are back ladies!

Platinum almost feels back to normal, we are swimming in pretty tops and dress once again, working hard towards pushing that button:)

Taking a time out to do Name The Dress…Get pumped for this beauty!

We have a new style for you – she has a Ellie Roundabout top and Paneled Knot Dress skirt and band

dress sizes: 2, 4, & 6

Leave us a comment with your suggestion of the perfect name for this dress, and we’ll choose a winner and announce it here on the blog tomorrow! If your name is chosen, we’ll send you this dress in the size of your choice (sizes listed above)! I can’t wait to hear all of your suggestions!

Happy naming

<3 Melissa

*One little house-keeping note: since there are so many people leaving comments, there is always the chance that more than one person may suggest the same name. If we choose a name that has been suggested by more than one person, we will only be able to select the first person to suggest the name as the winner. But never fear! There will be sooo many more contests and chances for winning, so don’t give up!*

Ok… I know someone has to follow my thoughts on this one… the hopscotch fabric immediately made me think of a playground… which lead me to…
At the playground, ya know
That’s where I saw this cutie
This girl was swingin’ and she looked so fly
On the monkey bars, we climbed up to the top and
She touched my hand that’s when I fell in love

Iesha… :)

Just thinking, since we all agree we love this beauty, and it being Valentine’s Day and all, seems a bit serendipitous to name her “Aphrodite” after the Goddess of Love and beauty. <3. Either that or "Renesme" after the daughter in the Twilight series..because this dress is a perfect blend of stunning and smart.

I would name it “Mackinac Island” or just “Mackinac”. Even “Lilac Festival” would work.

“Ibis”. I see hibiscus on the bodice. The name of the hibiscus plant is derived from the word “ibis” because the birds were thought to feed on hibiscus flowers. The ibis is also known for bravery during hurricanes. According to legend, the ibis is the last sign of wildlife to take shelter before a hurricane hits and the first to reappear once the storm has passed.

My LOVE STORY

There are so many exciting things going on in my brain right now.

Warm and Cozy

Art Fair 2013

Habitat for Humanity

and Valentines Day

Speaking of Valentines Day, this is my first one with my new Boo.

I am super excited about it, but having a REALLY hard time finding the perfect gift.

Something sweet but not too cheesy.

Sounds easier said then done, trust me!!!!

Some of you may have even seen my cutie on the MJC Lookbook page.

I tried to tell him it was an honor to be one of the “Men in MJC.”

Good thing he has a great sense of humor.

(Here he is in all of his handsomeness)

Anyway, I guess what I am trying to say is I hope you all have a great Valentines Day with your loved ones.

Whether that be a husband, boyfriend, kids, parents or friends, embrace every moment.

Most importantly, though, is not letting tomorrow be the only day you let that person know they are loved.

Tonight I am spending my night writing a letter to a very special Valentine.

A boy who’s face I will never forget and a voice I still hear during quite moments,

but more then anything I want him to know how loved he is tomorrow and ALWAYS.

MY SWEET SWEET Gordon

Thank you Kiara for delivering my letter. (Don’t forget the HUGE hug I am sending with it)

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!

XOXO

KAYLA

Hope Kiara will take a picture of Gordon with his letter so you can see that amazing smile.
You are so right we need to let those we love know it every day.
Kayla, such a nice looking couple you two are!!!!

My Heart is Forever in Africa

Only 3 more days and I’ll be on my way to Africa for the third time.

I started getting stuff together last night and I think it has finally hit me that we are actually going back.

I feel like I have half a million things to to before then but am hoping time passes quickly.

This trip is going to be more of a “man trip,” only me and two other gals along with the group of boys!

I’m exited to see their first reactions and how they will processes everything,

I can’t wait to see them bonding with the kids and see them lose their hearts to complete strangers.

I started a blog/journal to keep my thoughts and help me continue to process everything that I have experience during my trips and it’s amazing to see how quickly the emotions that I thought I had processed and moved on from come flooding back as soon as I start putting my thoughts into words again.

The past couple of days I have spent the last part of my evenings looking through photos from my first trip to Rwanda and then photos from our last trip to Kenya and…well,

I am not sure how to even put my emotions into words. I have an unconditional love for the women in Kigali and the children in Kitale.

I would do anything to make sure they are safe and healthy.

I am excited to see how their futures are changed for the better through the support of Denise and Matilda Jane.

Denise has forever changed my life by allowing me to be a part of these trips.

Africa will forever have my heart.

I can wait to see this sweet boy! Oh, I love him so much!

I don’t know if you can tell but I have a huge heart for Africa and Tuesdays are my day to blog and I can never think of anything that is better to blog than Africa.

So, I hope you don’t mind hearing a little more about my love each week.

Okay, well, I am sure I will have lots to share next Tuesday along with lots of photos but until then here is one more photo of my sweet Oliver!

What you are doing is so wonderful. Each time you post pics I cannot help but see my own children in the eyes of the kids that y’all are supporting there. I can only pray that if my circumstance had been different…had God chosen to place me in a different spot in His world, it would have been here. Good luck and safe travels.

Lisapaul - February 12, 2013 - 2:46 pm

You amaze me everyday, Kiara. From doing the littlest things to making these great voyages across the world – you have one of the biggest hearts I have the privilege of knowing. Thank you for everything you do and for the beautiful person you are. Xx

Gran - February 12, 2013 - 3:22 pm

Kiara, we all love Oliver and look forward to seeing pictures and reading your blog next Tuesday. Denise and so many of you at MJC have allowed many of us to travel a bit of these journeys with you and to share by sending our love and prayers with you as you go.

Erica S - February 12, 2013 - 3:29 pm

Have a safe trip and give Oliver hugs for me too! He is such a cutie pie.

Jaymie - February 13, 2013 - 10:41 am

Africa! Keep blogging about and loving Africa! I hope to get back there some day and love traveling with you through your words and images. This journey (I am speaking big picture)is amazing and I thank you for sharing with us. Oliver has such a sweet face! I never know if that look of “hope” in these darlings’ eyes is their own or a projection of what I feel when I see them…
Either way it’s powerful!

Safe travels always!

Has there been any thoughts of a drive with art fair? Like a clothing drive, book drive, art supplies, etc from everyone coming for art fair. You have so much enthusiasm for this. I am sure many of us would contribute!

Vanessa Bullock - February 14, 2013 - 2:57 am

I never tire of seeing photos from Africa. The most beautiful faces…. make the most of that time!
