How fun!
love the long weekend, planning our Disney vacation in November

we want to hear about the model contest too ๐Ÿ™‚

JodiR - May 30, 2010 - 5:28 pm

How exciting Denise! Can’t wait.

Seriously,ย  I have never seen so many beautiful little girls. Why I do this to myself is beyond me.ย  I sat out on the back porch and went through all the entries. WOW. Seriously, this is a hard one. And guess what else? the 435 Contest is almost drawing to an end. If you have not voted, you must!! We have 5 entries that are fighting neck and neck for the top 3 spots. I think there’s like no more than 10 or so votes between each one.

K. well, I am off to upload the Jane Exclusives.ย  I love, love the Kanga Stew dress. Love it.ย  And okay, I am quite happy with the name.

You know, last night I fell asleep before 9pm. It was wonderful. Tomorrow the office is closed, and I keep thinking it is Saturday. One can only wish.

Thanks for the Red Head Pearl, I just love red on all my children. You really just keep coming up with more cute stuff!! Which isn’t necessarily such a good thing for all us MJ addicts out there! It’s unbelievable how my mind works after seeing all your clothing, that BIG wishlist turns into a crazy juggling act and ya know what I’m sometimes even impressed with myself how I tend to pull it off. I can’t even imagine how tough it must be to pick 1 lil cutie, my goodness we all know how many BEAUTIFUL children are out there. Have a sunny and relaxing Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends!!

Lil - May 30, 2010 - 12:09 am

My sons wedding was yesterday and he Graduated the 3 time from College…. NOW DONE for a while!

Karlee Graduated from K. Thursday.

Im so SORRY girls I had my 2 picked came on to vote and I can’t!
Sorry MJ gang ๐Ÿ™

Day to the Oh - May 29, 2010 - 8:34 pm

Got myself 1 exclusive item, because unfortunately it’s my big girls that need stuff not my tiny! lol Every time I come home with more for her he says, “MORE for Kate, have you seen her closet?” I just laugh and say she’s my baby so too bad. But I agree with Debbie, I would have bought a bunch if there were a few tween sizes. After all the Hammond Bay releases, my little one is stocked! The Jane Exclusives are Fabulous though, so keep up the beautiful work!!!!!!

sashadvm - May 29, 2010 - 2:17 pm

when do we get to find out who won the 435 contest???
can’t wait to hear if one of my firends won!
love the exclusives!! too bad I can’t get my hands on any of them ๐Ÿ™

Holly's Mama - May 28, 2010 - 8:48 pm

I was a sub teacher today at a high school and I was wearing my GB Bluebird tank dress. The teenagers told me they liked my dress! Oh, I have to tell you that Becky in your office is such a sweet lady! She rocks!!!

~love - May 28, 2010 - 10:50 am

i’m in love with all the exclusives. i’m actually just in love with everything. you’re doing a great job, denise.

we got my trunk show order last week & i’m so thankful. i try very hard not to care about material things, but MJC is so beautiful & fun that it is more than “just” clothes. they make us all spunkier, more creative and feel more beautiful.

also? our clayton left you a message on our blog today. =)

Love, love, love the kanga stew and vintage ballet!! Also loving the candy apple tank – just needs a pair of ruffles made out of the red pearl material!

Debbie - May 28, 2010 - 6:57 am

any chance that you will do any of the jane exclusives in tween sizes? the stuff is so dang cute. . .

Janella - May 28, 2010 - 6:01 am

Can anybody order the Jane exclusives??

amyence - May 27, 2010 - 9:39 pm

Wow! Those Jane Exclusives are incredible! Kanga Stew is amazing – wow, I love it!

Darlene Burchfield - May 27, 2010 - 8:58 pm

I absolutley Love the new Jane exclusives! With four daughters… I am thinking way over my budget $$$, anyway, so glad you looked at the model photo entries I can’t wait for the results!:0) Keeping in mind that not everyone was or had a professional photographer, I think our TK did a great job:0)

Head over Heels for Hammond Bay - May 27, 2010 - 8:54 pm

The Jane Exclusives are super cute as always! The anticipation is killing me! I can’t wait to see the results!

jami - May 27, 2010 - 8:32 pm

Oh my Lawdy, the exclusives are BEutiful!!! Well done, AGAIN!!!
P.S. I have an ulcer. ๐Ÿ™‚

Melanie H. - May 27, 2010 - 8:12 pm

Wow, all of those Jane exclusives are fantastic!!! Gorgeous!
I can’t imagine how in the world you are going to choose for the Cover Girl contest, you had to have gotten like a million beautiful photos!

Monika - May 27, 2010 - 8:06 pm

I just looked at the exclusives and golly, that’s some cute stuff!!! I love the Kanga Stew too…. would be fabulous with the disco ruffles. Too bad I won’t be able to order any. Hear me sing “you can’t always get what you wa-ant, you can’t always get what you wa-ant… but if you try sometimes you might find, you get what you neeeeeeed”. And yep, I got all I need =).

Night Shift


I’m almost back into the swing of things. It seems I have been neglecting my blog a ton lately, oh but there are so many other things that have received my full fledged (is this a word) attention. maybe it should be pledged? maybe I should go to sleep huh?.ย  Anyhow, for real, I am working and it seems I have been working the night shift lately. Wow.

So 435 is quickly approaching. If you have RSVP’d to Sara please re-email her your address so she can send you an invite. We’re going to be launching the official MJC Foundation Friday night, we are all pretty thrilled about it. I’d type it all out for you but it’s nearing 1 am and I am getting pretty sloppy on details so I must wait. It is too important to goof up.

And what about those entries for the 435 trip. Pretty amazing eh? And a huge thanks to David from me for uploading them all. It has been so fun to see the votes and comments. And as always, I think I can predict the winner and I am proven wrong. I am not sure what’s going on, I used to be right all the time,. I mean all the time. Lately I can’t nail a thing. I am working on it though, don’t give up hope….I totally thought I had LOST figured out. Nope, wrong.

Okay, I gotta go to bed cuz I am gonna end up looking pretty bad tomorrow and I can handle 2 days in a row of looking , ah, not too good but 3 may be pushing it. A shower may help. Isn’t it crazy how busy kids make things? Certainly beyond wonderful but my gosh,ย  I play beat the clock everyday and I never win.

     
Mandy - May 31, 2010 - 11:24 am

just wanted to say thanks for putting my little cowgirl-Emma up on the blog. I promise she really does have the most beautiful and precious smile. Her daddy just keeps catching the shots without them! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to hear the winners of both contest…I entered both my girls in the Cover Model one and the one I voted for in the other contest made it to the top 5! ๐Ÿ™‚

Kim from Griffith - May 30, 2010 - 10:41 am

I sent my RSVP a few weeks ago but I haven’t received an invite. I will try it again.

JodiR - May 27, 2010 - 7:52 pm

Denise!!!!!! The Jane exclusives are BEYOND adorable. Wowza.

Bex - May 26, 2010 - 1:22 pm

Love that Grace!

Holly's Mama - May 26, 2010 - 10:31 am

I feel like I play “beat the clock” every day too and I never win. In fact I was thinking about that this morning. Bills to pay, my daughter needs clean underwear so do I sort through the laundry first or do I sort through the bills first? Both are important. Oh and I can’t forget about that cereal she spilled on the floor before she left for school! I keep telling myself to do my yoga breathing. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Have a great day!

Monika - May 26, 2010 - 10:04 am

Wonderful to hear that the MJC Foundation is happening!!! You guys simply rock!! And yes, full fledged is absolutely correctly used in your sentence =). It means “entire” or “real”. Gosh, I sound like a smart butt, lol!! And thanks for putting G up on your blog =).

J.Diddy - May 26, 2010 - 9:05 am

edit that…the betsy bubble came and we are rockin it! ๐Ÿ™‚

J.Diddy - May 26, 2010 - 8:26 am

i have come to realize that keeping up with a spray tan is just as hard as keeping up with a regular tan. and i dont even go dark. oh well…its nice to get tan in 10 second compared to hours and hours and days spend burning in the sun. plus my MIL did have melanoma last summer.

—-oh and while i was trying to fall asleep, i remember what else i was gonna say yesterday. that i cant wait for my daughter to get the bubble and wear it!! (i got talked into it at the trunk show… ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

JodiR - May 26, 2010 - 8:07 am

Hey JDiddy……me too on the Spray Tan! LOL.

gran - May 26, 2010 - 5:05 am

Excited for all that the MJC Foundation plans will soon be finalized.

J.Diddy - May 25, 2010 - 10:47 pm

wish i could go this year! you def need to hold a drawing again for early shopping, etc. i know everyone was excited about that and u can raise some great $$ for the foundation! As for me, im waiting news on the model contest. i havent seen our pictures…but i have seen some on some blogs. umm, wow. all the girls are so cute, i cant even imagine picking. im working on my spray tan just in case the answer “because i love it” wins us the trip (way to be creative Aubree….)
Cant wait to see some sneak peeks of the 435 stuff. you have to post some of course! i was gonna say something else but i forget….

ps, monika is a rockstar, that pic is awesome!

tree*head - May 25, 2010 - 10:16 pm
