I am proud to say I think I have graduated from the Beginner level to Easy. Yup, I have pretty much mastered the singing on Rock Band. And I am quite proud of myself. Joe says I am good. Gabe and David, well they just give me strange looks.

So let’s chat about 435.  We are just starting to put the details together but for those of you who needs to plan ahead, the quick lowdown is, Preview Party is Friday, June 25 from 6-9. Kids are welcomed. The art fair will be Saturday, June 26 from 9-4.  Saturday night from 6-? we will have a get together at my house, adults only.  Yes, these are pretty vague but hey, you got the dates and the times…details to come soon.

Now let’s chat about who’s gonna win the trip for 2 to 435. I’ve racked my brain on this, trying to come up with a great contest idea and I keep coming back to the same as last year. Why change a good thing, huh?  We will start taking submissions via mail (not email) on what Matilda Jane Clothing is to you. It is quite vague (my word of the day) but it really can be anything.  The contest will run April 15-30. I will post more details this week.

Okay, I know I said I would post pics of my house…but I feel dumb about it. What happens if I think it is super cool and you think I suck?  I’m so dumb that way. I need to build up the courage then I will…maybe!

Until later..have a a great Sunday. My boys are upstairs singing away, David went for a run and me? Well, I think I’m gonna go do some laundry and try to find an excuse to go to Target!

Yes – Liberty of London – perfect reason to go to Target…and photos of the house – we know you have incredible style!!

Rachel - March 21, 2010 - 8:53 pm

here is your reason to go to Target. SUPER cute womens clothes as well as several other super cute items by Larrys or Lloyds or Someone of London. I can’t think of who it is but you will know it when you see it. Adorable rain boots too.

Just wanted to say that I got my “first installment” of Hammond Bay last week and your mission statement totally summed it up…it just makes me HAPPY!!!…and my daughter loves it because it is soo comfortable.
Also, I can’t imagine why you would ever feel nervous able what anyone here thinks about your new house. Everyone on this site obviously loves your taste and style or we wouldn’t be here…I’m sure we will all just be envious when you decide to show off your new home.
