Ramble with me

And once again I end up blogging right after soo many great, inspiring posts. How does this keep happening to me? Possibly because the woman behind Matilda Jane are exactly that—great and inspiring.

We have been busy little bees at Matilda Jane lately, in a lot of different ways. For instance, all the WONDERFUL events for Breast Cancer Awareness that our office girls have been lucky enough to attend. Oh, and the PhotoLove contest is back!! AND how about getting Africa items in and finally placing our eyes on that awesome bag, the neato jewelry case, and the reversible apron?! Yep, I called the jewelry case neato because it just happens to be my favorite of all the items. I’m not really a purse gal, isn’t that strange?! At least it feels that way when you see how much our MJC team loves hobos, joeys, and messenger bags!

Anywho, let’s get bacon on track again…(Yep I typed bacon naturally so I left it, it’s early and I’m starving!) Things never seem to stop moving here. Not for one second. We are hiring and rehiring, we are even having BABIES!!!!!!! Not me HA, but Vivian from Platinum had her baby this week! Jenabelle is a 7lbs 4oz, perfectly healthy, baby girl.

See, I feel like I can’t stay on the same page this morning… FURTHERMORE, I want to tell you that we will be having two guests arrive today too! During the Amber Rousell auction, we donated a trip to MJC to hang with us, and to kinda see what goes on behind the scenes here. Well today is the day that Amanda and her mother Elizabeth will be flying in! I’m beyond nervous. Denise put me in charge of this and to be honest, I wanted to ask her WHY ME?!!?!? Not because I don’t love all you guys and definitely not because I don’t want to meet these two seemingly fabulous women, but I’m sooo not the social butterfly at MJC. Speaking of social butterfly, I asked Kayla to help me out with this (she is the queen of charm and entertainment, trust me) and then she decides to leave me for Nashville this weekend. What’s up with that?! Oh Amanda, don’t worry!! I am working my hardest to ensure you have a memorable time here with us, and Denise and I are looking forward to picking you up from the airport tonight. Wooooo! Speaking of Woo, do you remember the old Empress Woo dress? I do. It was new when I started and now it’s just a little piece of Matilda Jane history. My how time flies…

I told you I can’t stay on track today!! Hopefully the rest of my day goes more smoothly than this blog ha!



Ps. You’re probably wondering who that gorgeous gal is in the photos NOT sporting MJC? Last weekend I took Mark’s (THE BOYFRIEND) sister Sara’s Senior Photos! Talk about nervosa. Good thing she was the perfect model for an amateur like myself. Isn’t she gorgeous?

PSS. One more thing!! What do you think of our Fancy+Free newsletter? I’m esctatic for the November Lookbook. Can’t wait to see all your real girls wearing our clothing! THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HAVE SENT IN PHOTOS SO FAR!

I like “In the Shadow”- It took a few times of really looking at it to see the deer
