School days and last summer fun!

My parents, brother & I took the kids to KiddieLand today. Kiddieland has been open for YEARS and is closing forever the end of September :( Very sad since the kids love it so much! I took the shot above today-made it a little vintage and here's the original below!

Uncle Mark & K

Another vintage shot of the roller coaster! It was so much fun-G and I went first row!!

Grandma & K

G & K started Preschool this past Monday. This is G's second year, but K's first! They did great!

Couldn't get a smile for the life of me . . .

Oh wait-there's one!
I got this in the mail the other day . . . my very first TRUNK! Yes, TRUNK! It's my Matilda Jane Trunk, aka: The New Gypsy Line coming out September 8th! So excited-can you believe everything fit in that little suitcase?!? Well, it did! With a little ironing, it looks spectacular!
Now, if you could only see what's inside! heeheehee! :)

3rd Birthay and 1st day of 1st grade!

It was K's 3rd birthday on Monday-we celebrated on Sunday w/ Family and Friends! She had a great time as you can tell . . . LOVED her new big girl bike! The one from the garage sale just didn't cut it-the pedals kept coming off!

1st day of 1st grade for my 6 yr. old O! She loved it and couldn't have been more excited! Of course it started to pour rain as we walked to the bus stop-but that's ok, we convinced the driver to stop in front of our house from now on-YES! No more bundling up the 2 little ones in the winter to walk O to the bus stop!!!

New job . . . new chapter!

Yes! I have a new job . . . can you guess what it is?!? :) My favorite clothing line for little girls . . . Matilda Jane!
I was recently hired as a Trunk Keeper to the Western Suburbs of Chicago and attended my first Conference this weekend in Ft. Wayne, IN. Boy, was it fun! The girls are amazing and i made so many NEW GREAT friends! If anyone doesn't know what a TK is . . . basically i spread the love! :) I am your link to dressing your beautiful girls and beautiful mommies into clothing from Matilda Jane! The designer is so passionate and creative-i love this company! I have to send a "shout out" to Staci Boody for introducing me to MJ. When i first saw that knot dress on her gorgeous daughter, i had to know where she bought it . . . and the rest is history! So, thank you Staci! :)
Below are a few pics from the weekend-the first one is from the AMAZING RACE we played-our team won-whoo-hoo!!!

We attended the "Tin Caps" Ft. Wayne Minor League Baseball game-it was a blast! And the fireworks at the end were spectacular!!

Great people!
My new email address is: if anyone is interested in finding out more about Matilda Jane! :) Believe me-you can't go wrong in dressing your precious girls in these clothes-they're to die for! :)
