Happiness Delivered Daily

I heard a loud bang and was completely puzzled let alone a bit freaked. I sat there for a few moments, well actually laid there and heard it again. I was a little scared, sat up and looked around only to realize it was 12:26p.m..  Yes, and at that moment I decided it would probably be a pretty good time to start my day. I rushed down stairs only to find the audio guys banging on the door. Oh, what a great day, sleep until early afternoon and get a TV. Yup, we finally have a TV.  Love today.  And what is almost as good as today, was yesterday. On a fluke I went out last night. Jenny called and said who s the one person you always wanted to see in concert. I sat silent but totally thought about New Kids on the Block. Well, this concert turned out to be on a completely different scaled with much older man. Good Ole, Willie Nelson. Oh ya…and I even shook his hand. Hilarious on all aspects.

And here we have Gabe practicing his Hanging Tough moves. Sorry I totally dissed you on the house pics. Blame it on sleeping in way too late…and I’m getting bored of my camera. Tomorrow, just don’t hold your breathe.

Do  you have a clue how excited we are getting about 435. It is gonna be so fun. i really want to have a party here Saturday night. I just have to convince a few more people it would be a good idea. And find a babysitter!

Now for those of you in the northern Atlanta area, I kindly suggest you go see my cousin Mamie in Marietta. Her shop is called Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes and  she does promise “Happiness Delivered Daily”.  Okay, she really says “Baked” but hey, she hand you the best tasting baked goods, so technically she delivers it. Man, I so need to steal that tag line.  It’s darn good.  And my gosh, what a fantastic place to have a kids birthday party. Imagine all the kids covered in frosting, you could get the cutest photos!

Okay, time to watch LOST…though I am getting quite irritated by it.  For real, let’s get to the point huh?

Stay tuned cuz we are gonna have the 435 Contest real soon..

I have am the BIGGEST Willie fan you will ever know!! Ask me one day for my story, I have a few and oh…love Willie. Know all his songs by heart:)

WhitleyKate's mom - March 17, 2010 - 8:06 pm

OMG!! NKOTB!!! My friend and I traveled from Columbus, Indiana to St. Louis, Missouri to see them in concert a year and a half ago! What a fun roadtrip! Lady Gaga opened, and I hadn’t even heard of her then. Then my husband got tickets to take me when they were at Verizon. He was less-than-thrilled with the concert, but I was like a teenager again!

We made a road trip to Whitley County today (3 hour)for my son’s 4th grade Indiana History county report. He chose Whitley county since that’s his sis’s name. We were sooo close to Ft. Wayne! I told my husband maybe we should take a side trip and see where it all happens! So that didn’t happen, but it was a thought, right?

Hi Denise,

Can I just thank you SO much for yet another amazing new line? 🙂 I tried my Cher dress on for the 1st time last night (why I have waited I don’t know. . .) I am SO in love! And the Yoga pants. . . I will LIVE in those. . . And that’s just my stuff! (Well. . . some of it!) We had compliments from every person who saw Gigi walking the preschool halls today in the Sprite leggings (she wears leggings like their pants but on her it works! 🙂 But I thought “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet”! We have the world’s best nanny. . . we’ll bring her with us & she can babysit for you for 435! I’m not kidding! Have a GREAT night!

jenniV - March 17, 2010 - 6:26 pm

Best concert ever! Still haven’t washed my hand… Swear!

Tj Aneca - March 17, 2010 - 5:57 pm

OK! You are my new favorite person. First you post the most darling picture of my girlies in you last post and Second, I find out that you are a LOST fan?!!! Not many lost fans out there. I’m feeling the same way though…..its driving me crazy to watch these last episodes! Maybe I should have a lost party? You should come! It’s only a hop, skip and a jump to canada! LOl!!!

Heather G. - March 17, 2010 - 5:49 pm

I love that you thought of New Kids on the Block!! They were my first concert, when I was 8 and then I saw them twice last year again! Too fun! : )

Erin Spencer - March 17, 2010 - 2:55 pm

Hey Denise did I miss something….did you ever pick a name for your news letter? Did you ever release one because I thought you said if you have are email we would recieve it??? Just wondering and I know you have had a ton of stuff goin on!!! Anyway love the new pieces and cant wait for contest details!!!!

Betsy! - March 17, 2010 - 11:35 am

HOLY CRAP what I see of your house already BLOWS ME AWAY! I’m so jealous but happy for you at the same time. WOW!!!!!

Once again, coolest house in FW!!! My late husband would have FLIPPED for it, I just know it. (He was an architect, so already seeing the concrete floors, he would have loved it.)

Katie M. - March 17, 2010 - 11:17 am

oh man- I need to go to Atlanta and befriend your cousin- those look incredible- I can only imagine what they taste like!
Ok- if the background of Gabes photo (who is adorable of course) is your new place- then Im loving it- especailly the green nesting tables with the red and white lamp and vase of tulips- so bright, colorful and perfect for welcoming spring! Oh and that chair- oh my- I want to nap in that chair!

Day to the Oh - March 17, 2010 - 10:31 am

Hey, D! I am so glad you told me about your cuz! Marietta is supadupa close to me, so I am going to make a point of paying her a lit’l visit! I know you’re not a hugger, but surely you have a hug for me to give to her for you!!! 😉 Next best thing to meeting you. What an adorable shop name! Kylee’s bday is next month , so that sound like a fun party idea! Woohoo!!! Party time all around!!!

Denni - March 17, 2010 - 9:00 am

I am dying for a cupcake now! I HAVE to have a party at Mamie’s! Now I just need to find someone who is getting married, having a baby, or having a birthday!

Incognito - March 17, 2010 - 6:41 am

I’ve heard about your cousin’s bakery before… Those cupcakes look devine!!

Lauri - March 17, 2010 - 5:07 am

Yummy!! My husband is in Hotlanta for the day, think some cupcakes can make it to Indiana if he carried it on! As for my concert choice, I had to see Milli Vanilli, and I did, sucker!

Cynthia - March 17, 2010 - 4:26 am

LOST – I was totally thrown of by James being a cop…WTH??

christine - March 17, 2010 - 3:31 am

My first apartment, I lived without a TV for 2 years until a friend brought over his black & white 🙂
I remember I read ALOT of books.
Look at the little sneak peeks of your house. It looks like you have already gotten it together! PS Awesome floor.

April W. - March 16, 2010 - 10:09 pm

We are 3 hours from Atlanta…we will for SURE check it out and say “hi” to her for you! 🙂
We have noooo cupcake bakeries here in South Carolina. (that I know of)
I recieved my trunk show orders today!!! Yipee! The clothes just make me happy. My 2 year old baby girl knows what she likes and picks out her own things(sometimes!). She’s TWO! 😉

Yay for your t.v.! I can’t live without mine. I have one going over my oversized,upgraded,jetted tub next week!


Melanie H. - March 16, 2010 - 8:49 pm

Haven’t watched tonight’s Lost, but for real, it is making me craaaazy!
And I totally think “Happiness Delivered Daily” would be a MOST fitting tagline for MJC! Oh the JOY that follows when a big ol’ box with one of your pretty stickers arrives on the doorstep!

Jennifer - March 16, 2010 - 8:47 pm

Your house looks gorgeous! And those cupcakes look SO yummy!
I wish I was closer, I would love love to come to a party at your house or better yet, be your babysitter! Gabe and my son Cooper could get into some FUN trouble together I promise! xo

Beautifulclothing - March 16, 2010 - 7:54 pm

If I lived closer I would be happy to babysit for you…Darn.

K Squared Mommy - March 16, 2010 - 7:53 pm

I’m beginning to feel really lost when I watch LOST–I guess it’s aptly named. 😉

mom2P&B - March 16, 2010 - 7:23 pm

Super excited to experience my first time at 435!!! And, LOST….just finished watching it! Gotta love Sawyer! Crazy stuff!!
