On the Horizon

So many wonderful things are happening at MJC right now. Yes we are crazy busy and yes we have even more craziness ahead of us with the release of Serendipity in our near futures!! But no complaints, I mean it! I wouldn’t ask for it any other way here at 433/435. Like Denise said, it’s fun to ‘float’ from area to area helping where we can! I’m gonna be honest, I haven’t been a ton of help outside of working on FALL 2012, but I’m gonna pack up some SALE Platinum orders today so that’s something, right?! Ohh how I love it when I get to pack your orders! I love all of my jobs at MJC, but packing is usually the last thing I get a chance to do. So some of you will be receiving special notes from me today!!

As crazy busy as we all are, there is something exciting on the horizon for us too! The photo shoot for THE RIGHT ONE is this week! Denise, Lynette, and I get on a plane this Thursday and fly out to Austin, TX. There are about a million reasons why I’m looking forward to this, but here’s a list of the top 5:

1. Getting to meet THE RIGHT ONE. Can’t wait to work with you, cute Isaiah!

2. Getting to meet a bunch of new friends. Yep, we certainly are unpredictable and when we go on a trip there’s usually more than one reason, not to mention always a few surprises up our sleeves!

3. Seeing Michelle Huesgen and Jami Davis!!!!!!

4. A photo shoot in a new place with new people! We are taking along our buddies Matt and Jake from One Lucky Guitar to help make this one of the BEST shoots ever. Just you wait.

5. To see the boys line to come to life! Seriously, we can’t wait to let you in on the secret!


And up at the top, those cute arms are from one of the models from the Serendipity shoot in CA. I highly doubt this weekend’s photo shoot will have as many sparkly accessories as the CA one : ) But that’s half the reason I’m so excited–to hang with your sweet boys instead of your darling girls for a change!

I have a feeling a few boy’s sneak peeks are in your future, so hold tight!

Can’t believe I missed that you would be here AND shooting a boys line- so exciting!!! You will love it in Austin! I was a finalist in your first Photo Love Contest and shot at a really cool Austin location 🙂 I am sure you have all you need, but if you need anything here, let me know I would love to help you out any way I can. I even have a crazy cute 5 yr old boy 🙂

Isn’t Michelle Huesgen the best? We used her for newborn and family pics in March. She is the sweetest and a fantastic photographer!!!

You guys are coming to TEXAS, YAY! I have a cute little 2.5 year old if you decide you want to throw him in the mix, call me (he has the most amazing eyes ever)and you will be right down the freeway from me!

I am so thrilled that we will be having more than 4 MJ t-shirts & a Mighty Acorn jacket SOON! We seriously wear them constantly, even when they get too small. Austin is a great place and I hope you guys have a magical time there.

Sam – don’t forget you have to write a sweet message or draw a cute picture when you pack up orders!! Well, you don’t have to … but it sure is fun! I look for my message before I even look at the cuteness!!
