I really don’t even know what to say. That was the most fun I’ve ever had on a trip. We didn’t know what to expect, but we certainly didn’t expect everything that happened! I’m still just trying to take it all in!! Denise (the owner of Matilda Jane) spoiled us like no other. She was there to pick us up from the airport and even though she rented us a car, she pretty much just took us with her everywhere she went all weekend. She is THE MOST generous (and creative!) person ever, Katie and I were so excited everytime she came to pick us up at the hotel. Everything was taken care of for us, the hotel, food, movies, room service, even spending money! It was freaking AMAZING. It was so fun to see all the behind the scenes stuff and meet everyone who works at and makes Matilda Jane run.
I have so so so much to do now that I’m back home and thrown back into reality. So here’s a few pictures. And can you even believe Katie’s tiny little tummy?? She is less than 5 weeks from having her sweet baby girl, I can’t wait!
We may, or may have not got to load up on clothes for our girls (and studios of course). I can’t really say….although just ask our hotel neighbors who probably thought someone was being murdered next door, with all the screaming that we just couldn’t hold in. Best day of my life.
We loved going to 435. That was the building that felt like a dream, with fabric and ribbon and CLOTHES on every shelf, I want to LIVE there. It has cuteness oozing out of it everywhere you look. This little doll scared the crap out of me everytime I walked around the corner.
Everywhere we drove in Fort Wayne was so cool. There are sooooo many old buildings and the houses had so much character. On the flight home Katie and I tried to figure out how we could move there, since there is a photographers dream around every corner. I am now in love with Fort Wayne, Indiana. Crazy.
And now for the best part of all…..I wasn’t sure if I had won any clothes from the spring line or not, but apparently I get the whole thing, and of course I am FREAKING OUT, because they are the cutest clothes Matilda Jane has ever ever EVER had!!!! I’m still completely in shock from the whole thing, but I am so excited and very very very GRATEFUL for Dave and Denise and everything they did for us. This has been the best and most fun experience of my whole life! I met the cutest girls and I will remember them all for a long time. (I’m talking about you guys, Sam, Kayla and Lynnette!)
And of course I’m still having a party for the new spring line, Hammond Bay (did I mention these are the cutest clothes EVER???) It will be held on February 17th, from 1-3 pm. So mark your calendars and save up some money, because you are going to want it all. They have the cutest ladies clothes too, I’m so excited to get some for myself!
For more cuteness, go to the Matilda Jane Blog and see more. And leave Denise a little note if you can, she is going through a lot right now and I still can’t believe she pulled off that huge conference with everything she had going on, including babysitting us!!
