Happy Easter to you!!ย  Yup, my kids are all sugared up and fighting like…umm you know squirrels in trees that are super annoying and make your dog bark? Yup, those are my boys but man are they cute.

So we are downย  in Florda with us and 3 great families. It’s wonderful BUT I did drop my phone AGAIN and it is now broken. There is no hope! None. K, it is real hard to post witgh 4 people sitting next to you….real hard.

Just got back from the soccer field, I actually had a mom pull over and ask where MJ is located!! She loved my daughters outfit!! It was a goal stopper for sure today…at least for the other team!!!

Heather G. - April 5, 2010 - 9:01 pm

Happy Easter!

Mitra - April 5, 2010 - 7:34 pm

Why do you come to FLORIDA and not tell me?!?! A girl could start to take that REAL personal Denise!

Elaine - April 5, 2010 - 1:54 pm

Will you be posting the rules for the contest soon? You said voting begins April 15th yet there aren’t any details yet.
Once again it leaves me feeling like the odd man out. If you aren’t a seasoned MJC customer you tend to be left out in the cold.

Melody in Arizona - April 5, 2010 - 12:05 pm

Love your blog Denise. Enjoy Florida…now can we get some sneak peeks ๐Ÿ™‚ Pretty please.

Christina P - April 5, 2010 - 12:00 pm

Happy late Easter Denise! Hope you came down to our area again, its so nice in the spring(not at all freezing like when you guys came down for the Hammond Bay shoot,lol!)Easter was Anjolies birthday too!!

samantha - April 5, 2010 - 8:46 am

where in fla are you?

hope you enjoyed the “finally it’s the reason we live here” weather this weekend.

Day to the Oh - April 5, 2010 - 8:35 am

Hope yesterday was wonderful, bickering and all! I like the thought of squirrels and the Easter bunny! Ha! Are you guys back at Watercolor? I can’t wait until we go back to Rosemary Beach this summer. It is such another world down there and a great escape. Be safe and have a blast! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Emma's*Mommy - April 5, 2010 - 8:06 am

Happy Easter and enjoy your trip!

Mary Kay - April 5, 2010 - 6:12 am

Haappy, Happy Easter!!!I can so relate to the phone issues & fighting boys, who have had waaaaaay too much sugar! My boys were on the dock at my parent’s cabin fishing with grandpa –it was one of those moments you want to treasure with grandparents!! Of course, I ran down to the dock to capture the momment. I was walking backwards on the dock to get the right angle for a picture when I stepped right off the back off the dock & splashed into the lake– my phone was in my pocket! I did save the camera! My boys are STILL laughing & will certainly remember mom falling into the lake for a long time. Anyway, we have been wearing MJC all week and adoring it!!! There is absolutely nothing more adorable than a little girl in MJC!!! Enjoy your vacation, your family, and treasure the memories!!

christine - April 5, 2010 - 3:57 am

Have a wonderful time in Florida!
PS…..received my Hammond Bay 2 release! GORGEOUS!!! I love this line!

Monika - April 4, 2010 - 9:34 pm

Happy, happy Easter to you!! Enjoy your vacation and the bickering boys ;-)!

Lil - April 4, 2010 - 9:13 pm

Happy Easter and God Bless… ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Sorry about your phone ๐Ÿ™

Michelle Huesgen - April 4, 2010 - 8:39 pm

Happy Easter gorgeous! I guess that’s why you haven’t texted me back lol…
My kids are INSANE too! Today was Stella’s birthday so we had double the crap…and now STella can’t sleep cuz her belly hurts..I should know better.

Holly's Mama - April 4, 2010 - 8:23 pm

Happy Easter Denise!!! Maybe something good can come out of your phone breaking because you can get a “break” from electronic overload. That was the nicest thing about our cruise – getting away from it ALL including emails, texts and calls. Have a wonderful vacation.

Katie M. - April 4, 2010 - 8:22 pm

Have a great time in FL (here in SoCal we got some big earthquakes for easter!) You should have a few pics to in your email when you return ๐Ÿ™‚

marsha mifsud - April 4, 2010 - 7:07 pm

Thank you so much Denise for sending the fabulous clothes to the Savvy Sisterhood Workshop! We loved getting to dress up the models…the clothes are darling! Thank you…thank you!!
the savvy photographer

Melanie H. - April 4, 2010 - 6:49 pm

Happy Easter Denise! Enjoy a wonderful time in FL! There is not much better than the beach & good times with great friends!

Laura Ann - April 4, 2010 - 5:56 pm

Hope you guys had a wonderful Easter. We sure did enjoy sporting our MJC to Church last night and for the family today. My little girl was cute as a BUTTON! Have a great time in Florida. So sorry to hear you dropped your phone. I am sure there is something better waiting on you…hmm…perhaps you can make us a little pouch to carry all our phones in with a little padding, just in case we drop it (with a BIG MJ tag sewn on it)…too cute!

Samuel Jackson

Yes, we like to refer to her as Samuel Jackson, or little Mule or just Sam. We love this girl and she is now 21, well, on the 1st she will be!! Seeing she has become part of the brains behind Platinum we’d better offer FREE Shipping on Platinum as well. Consider it, her birthday gift to you!

Oh, and how about we drop the minimum and apply free shipping to any size order. This applies to Platinum as well as Trunk Show Shipping.ย  (shipping to lower 48 states only)

Effective Thursday, April 1, 2010. 8am EST

LAURI PICKETT - May 31, 2010 - 9:09 pm

I just like the approach you took with this subject. It is not often that you discover a subject so to the point and informative.

mimi - April 3, 2010 - 5:26 am

Happy Birthday Sam! Love this girl. She sends the sweetest emails, and is “always” kind and helpful! Love her spirit and passion for her job. The new look of Platinum reflects all those qualities. Have a great weekend.

Lil - April 2, 2010 - 8:40 pm

Guess the jokes on me b/c I wasn’t even on Yesterday.

HOWEVER Happy Belated Birthday to you Sam… Enjoy being 21 but dont get into to much trouble, that what i told my son! lol

Jessica Johnson - April 2, 2010 - 12:49 pm

Oh MY OH MY, What a nice surprise my Hubby won some MJC for my girls What a nice surprise and what a wonderful generous family you are. THank You Thans You!My girls love everything SAM!

I hope you had a wonderful birthday Sam!!!

boys4girls2 - April 2, 2010 - 4:46 am

Happy Birthday Sam! April 1st is my birthday too, hope you had the same gorgeous weather that we had to celebrate!

Emma's*Mommy - April 1, 2010 - 8:10 pm

Happy Birthday to Sam and thank you for the free shipping! My husband probably won’t thank you since I placed an order today that I wouldn’t have had I not had a good excuse like free shipping…oh well…it would have eventually happened anyway. Thanks again.

Laura Ann - April 1, 2010 - 7:36 pm

Denise ~ thank you so much for continuing to GIVE, GIVE, GIVE and GIVE some more. Seriously, you never stop. I know you do not do this to get thanked and you would rather your thoughtfulness go unrecognized, but every day I see more of your giving spirit and out of the blue got to experience it today through Share the Love. What a sweet suprise and it could not have come at a better time. Thank you so much for all you do…I try to live by the motto “you can never outgive” everyday in my role as an educator and you sweet friend exemplify that. I never knew the day I discovered MJ that I would gain a sweet friend & fabulous TK (KN) and so much more. Thanks again for all you do.

Laura Ann - April 1, 2010 - 7:29 pm

Happy Birthday to you…happy birthday to you….happy birthday dear Sam, Happy Birthdy to you! I hope you have the happiest 21st birthday evah. Thanks for all you do to keep the MJ Platinum coming.

WhitleyKate's mom - April 1, 2010 - 7:24 pm

Happy Birthday Sam! ๐Ÿ™‚

My4IrishCuties - April 1, 2010 - 6:14 pm

Denise, You are such a sweet and thoughtful person!! I don’t know you, but it seems you are always puting others first. It’s so refreshing in this world these days to come across selfless and giving people. Thanks for all you do you put a smile on so many little girls faces! I look forward to the MAGIC you create!!

Beautifulclothing - March 29, 2010 - 1:01 pm

Laura Ann, I am begging also! I would love to get my hands on a raven skirt in a size 4. I regret not purchasing it when it first came out. I am excited about the 3rd HB line coming out. I really want one of those cookie tanks. Good luck.

NICOLE - March 29, 2010 - 12:12 pm

Very cute kitty ๐Ÿ™‚ and pretty awesome picture also.

Tara Hayes - March 29, 2010 - 10:40 am

She is beautiful!! I love cats, but I cannot have one cause I am SOOOO allergic! I saw one at the Animal Shelter and wanted to take her home, but after about 10 minutes of petting her, I began sneezing and my eyes swelled up… ๐Ÿ™

eileen - March 29, 2010 - 6:31 am

She is beautiful. I agree she must have some Maine coon in her. ( as I lay here petting my beautiful part Maine coone cat!)

Lillie - March 28, 2010 - 7:15 pm

Love what I am seeing and Sam is adorable…

I have to say WOOO HOOOO… I have seen pictures from 2 friends kids on here in the past few days…

Maria. Love the pic. of the kiddos!!!!!!!

Susan… Love the shot of Carson a few days earlier….

Laura Ann - March 28, 2010 - 1:51 pm

I am not a cat person, but this a pretty cat and I am so glad he makes you guys happy.

Denise, you and your crew completly outdid yourselves on the Hammond Bay line. Every piece of it is beautiful and oh so girly. However, I missed out on lots of it because I was planning my son’s 1st Birthday. However, I was fortunate enough to place an order and piece together a couple outfits that should be heading my way soon.

If there is ANYONE out there that ended up with some extra 4’s please, please contact me. (yes I am begging). Please understand I will only pay what you paid for it, I am not willing to support the folks on EBAY that take advantage of the hardwork of the MJ crew. So if you have some and feel like sharing, I am your girl.

Laura Ann

NYSweeties - March 28, 2010 - 10:59 am

She looks JUST like our Cobie!

Katelyn's Mommy - March 28, 2010 - 10:56 am

Pretty, pretty… and looks like she knows it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautifulclothing - March 28, 2010 - 9:45 am

I am so excited about the contest. I can’t wait to find out the details. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Christine - March 28, 2010 - 8:32 am

Oh, she is so cute! She does look like Maine Coon. I also have 1 (Geisha) and a little Persian (Miu Miu). We just lost her sister suddenly this year (MiMi)

Denise - March 28, 2010 - 7:05 am

I’m emberrased to say, David and I spend about 10 minutes a night drooling her her. It is quite funny…maybe cuz she is our only girl? Or maybe cuz she is so dang funny.
Contest rules coming this week so we can go on Spring Break no stress!

Ali - March 28, 2010 - 5:58 am

AWh… I LOVE her pretty pose. I want to meet her!

Katie M. - March 28, 2010 - 1:20 am

If you ever find the need to rehome her- Myles and Molly are DYING for a cat!
Any chance we can get details/rules for the contest soon- I have two ideas and I need to know which way to go before I do too much on either one ๐Ÿ™‚

*TKJT* - March 28, 2010 - 12:44 am

Awww so glad you’re enjoying Sammie ๐Ÿ™‚

Darlene Burchfield - March 27, 2010 - 9:58 pm

Cats are beautiful… I’ve never had one. My mom always disliked them and my family has always owned dogs. My dad also raises labs. We have a beagle and a lab. What are the advantages and or disadvantages of having a cat? You have had both now sooo… please share. Since I really don’t know.. LOL! Oh and I am sooo loving our MJ. I keep ordering more!! Just cannot help it!

Skye Johansen - March 27, 2010 - 9:39 pm

Looks like she’s becoming more social! She is so beautiful and I can tell she is loving your new house!

Erina - March 27, 2010 - 8:33 pm

SHE IS BEAUTIFUL! I wish she was mine… but wait… I already have two beautiful cats =)!!!!

Monika - March 27, 2010 - 8:31 pm

She looks lovely!

Melanie H. - March 27, 2010 - 8:31 pm

She is a lovely gal! And your house looks positively amazing! Hope that you are having a grand weekend!

tree*head - March 27, 2010 - 8:18 pm

OOO I like her a lot to! Too bad my hubby is allergic :(…so no cats for us but we have one VERY spoiled chihuahua!

Beautifulclothing - March 27, 2010 - 7:40 pm

Awww. So snuggly.

*Twinkle*Toes* - March 27, 2010 - 7:36 pm

ready to pounce…..

Dana - March 27, 2010 - 7:29 pm

AAH, I have 3 cats, and two of them are Maine Coons, which is what this one looks like. Love it!

Cynthia Schauss - March 27, 2010 - 7:12 pm

That is the most beautiful picture…of a cute. I love how it glows!

Mississippi Gal - March 27, 2010 - 7:07 pm

I like her too! Especially her name because our male cat is named Sammie! He is more black with white fluffy fur. Our cats together could make beautiful kittens!!! Cats are awesome! Just like MJC!!! bTW love, love HB!
