And first things first, I decided to host a Matilda Jane "Virtual" trunk show!!!
Directions for ordering are above, but PLEASE let me know if you have any questions about ANYTHING.
MJ can be overwhelming at first, but I promise it's easier than you might think :)
Go to the MJ site, and as you browse collections you add items to your wishlist. Once you've finalized your wishlist you email it to me (I'll be your "Jane" as well as Kat who will be our "Trunk Keeper"... she's the one who orders directly from Matilda Jane). There's going to be a promotion going on this weekend and I'll give y'all the info as soon as I have it (the founder of MJ had a death in her family this week, so things have been running a little bit slower than normal), but it will probably be a gift with purchase. In order to ensure that everyone who orders gets their gift we'll be closing out our show Monday at 2:00 p.m. You can send in your wishlists to me any time this weekend up until 12:00 on Monday.
I'll be around all weekend, so email me if you need help picking pieces or have any questions regarding sizing, etc. In general, order up a size in leggings and your regular size in ruffles. They also have super cute mama clothes as well! These are some of our favorite pieces from the current collection, Wonderful Parade...
There are still lots of pieces left from previous collections as well. Here are a few that Griffin has worn A LOT!
Today was a super fun day! Nothing major, but gorgeous weather and lots of time together :)
This boy is by my side CONSTANTLY! HE looks for me first thing in the morning and always has to know where I am. I was trying to blow dry my hair and he wanted to sit in my lap. Crazy mamas boy :)
I stopped in at Nordstrom yesterday and picked up the jacket that Sheaffer has been talking about. It's EVERYTHING that she promised and more. I love it!!!
The sizing online looks CRAZY! I'd say order your normal size. I'm wearing a small, which the size says is equivalent to a 00 which I most definitely am NOT. Order it HERE before it's gone!!!
I paired it with a super fun scarf from Anthropologie...
My particular scarf is sold out, but here's a couple more that are similar and ADORABLE!
I like scarves that have LOTS of colors because you can wear them with tons of different things and really get your moneys worth!
(The scarf in the middle is my same scarf, but a different color combo)
Mallory is Dave's cousins wife (I need Lori to tell me how we're related - hahaha), and we had the best time at SNUG on the Square and then shopping downtown.
Griffin was so happy she was doing her scrunchy nose smile :)
Girl talk :)
While we were lunching and shopping, the boys were at home tearing down this old shed in our backyard. The previous owners put it up and it was junky and we never stored anything in it so it was time to come down. The boys had a BLAST tearing it down. While I was out Dave sent me these pics :)
Those two are a mess!!!
I posted this pic on IG and lots of y'all wanted to know about my shirt. It says "She believed she could and so she did" and you're going to hate me when I tell you that I got it from a friend who got it a while ago as a fundraiser. The owner of Matilda Jane was raising money for Habitat for Humanity and sold these tees. They're not available anymore... sorry!!! But since y'all loved the saying so much I MAY come up with a free printable over the weekend for you to grab next week.
After naps we got dressed and ready for an impromptu dinner out. I feel like I'm linking to lots of scarves today, but this one is a MUST!!! It's from Nordstrom and they're two for $38. I was skeptical because of the price, but when it came I think it is literally the softest thing I own. It has lots of "ooomph" and volume and it's infinity which makes it super easy to wear. I ordered it in this aqua color and I want as least four more :) You can find all the colors HERE.
And in case you're curious.... my earrings are THIS PAIR from Etsy. They're embossed leather, weigh NOTHING and make a big statement. Rachel from Floral and Fudge blogged about them and I had to try them for myself. So glad I did!!!
I painted my nails this afternoon and left the polish out on my desk. While we were getting ready to walk out the door Mason decided he wanted pretty nails like Mommy. Thankfully he was pretty neat (unlike me... check out my HORRIBLE right hand in my selfie pic. hahaha). He does have great taste in color, though. This is OPI Hot and Spicy... appropriate since we say he's our "spicy" child :)
He got one drop on my desk and that was it. I was annoyed and kind of impressed at the same time.
We got him cleaned up as best as we could and headed to dinner. He insisted on wearing Luke's 3D glasses from the Sherman and Peabody movie all the way there...
I pick my battles and try to be a "Yes Mom", so I let him wear the glasses into Macaroni Grill :)
Griffin was looking super cute in some ruffle jean leggings and a cardigan that I DIE over :)
Spring break has been so much fun and I can't believe it's almost over! Good news - Easter is coming up and then it's SUMMER! I can't wait to spend 8 solid weeks with these whack-a-doodles :)
Happy last day of Spring Break! I'll be doing absolutely nothing but soaking up some family time and hopefully eating snow cones :)
Don't forget to email me about the Matilda Jane!!! I'd love to help you pick out a few things and would so appreciate you being part of my show!!! :)
