My day started out fairly normal...for the most part. I took the 2 hour commute to what has become one of my most loved fabric suppliers in PA. Out in the middle of absolutely Nowhere, pennsylvania popped up a fabric store & to my twinkling eye surprise I found the most awesome striped knits that have become Momi boutique's "Peppermint sticks" & "Spearmint sticks". Running low on both, I figured I'd stock up. Word to the wise...spearmint stick fabric is completely gone so..I have only a few yards on a bolt. If you love them..don't leave them go!
Did I ever mention that the peppermint sticks are going to double as amazing valentine pants & then fourth of july capris. Not to mention the spearmint sticks are completely St. Patrick's day appropriate!
Today I managed to find polka dot knits (fushia/white & white with aqua)...so very dreamy! On my way home I cross over railroad tracks with no crossing guards out in the middle of the woods...nothing in sight as far as the eye could see...and for a moment (even though I knew exactly where I was) I felt lost. I haven't been sure if I'm going left or right lately.
So, I guess around christmas I will get to take my big trip to the city! I absolutely will not blog about it again until after it's all over because my blood has been pulsating through my body all day & my hands have been shaking...I could bearly tie the ribbons around your orders! I don't think I have ever felt completely scared to death & so much excitement about the exact same thing in my entire life.
Surely, a phone call that I will never forget!
My sister & jon have been friends for 15 years & that's as far as I will go. But...she is a "pretty" mystery. Last night they were both emailing me pics from their phones, trying to humor me because they know that I've been sitting here googling Gosselin about every 10 minutes for the past 4 days. Apparently there are no paparazzi in Hawaii...which I do believe is true. You wouldn't think that for all the famous people who vacation there but, really, a paparazzi person could not make a living on a remote island in the middle of the ocean.
P.S. Goodbye matching gymboree...hello Momi boutique! He now follows momi boutique on twitter!
I have SO much to say I don't even know where to begin! Today is Lil's 3rd birthday so a much needed HUGE Happy Birthday to the swine flu survivor....or so we thought! The doctor had me convinced Sunday that after talking to an infectious disease doctor down at CHOP that even after 2 negative swine flu tests, she mostly likely DID have the swine flu. Well, after her repeat blood work & follow up appointment today..we're not really so sure what is going on as her inflammation is still elevated. This whole experience has been nothing short of a complete nightmare from the moment she turned grey & to ice in the doctor's office Friday night, to the 106 temp while being admitted. It is quite tramatic having a sick child, especially when your husband's tear ducts flow just as fast as hers! Big ol' softy! I, for one, know that I am absolutely NOT cut out to be the parent of a terminally ill child...no, absolutely would have to call in back up support. And thank the sparkling stars in the sky that my mom is a nurse!
Speaking of sparkling..that leads me to my next thought! The entire time we were holed up in the Reading hospital Lily kept begging to go home to her birthday party (we had one planned for Sunday). Well, when we arrived home on Sunday we made it happen! As I have already made completely clear...I am NO party planner! Lily's theme turned from Wow Wow Wubzy into..."anything Lily loves". We had wubzy, backyardigans, my little pony..and of course little silver circle confetti. Monday morning I frantically picked up all of the confetti that I was finding all over the floor, all the while thinking.."I sure hope leah doesn't swallow any of these or we may just be right back in the hotel for lead poisoning"...Sure enough, I changed the diaper & there staring me in the face was a silver sparkling confetti!
Needless to say she survived & I'll be happy to tell her someday that she poops sparkles. She'll just love that since she is the girly girl of the group!
I feel like I have been a whirlwind & am crossing my fingers tight that daycare will happen the next two days because Friday we are supposed to take flight to Florida for a mini vaca & let it be known that I have absolutely no new designs to be modeled...huge disappoint to me, however, maybe it is all for the better! I may just take those 4 days of rest & relaxation & run with them!
Thank you all for your positive vibes & well wishes over the past few days!
Quite frankly...I think I would like a dose of the swine flu about twice a year for the next 18 years if it always involved breakfast, lunch, & dinner in bed, freshly baked brownies, rented chick flicks, all of the laundry done, not having to change a diaper for 3 days...yes Mr. Momi you really outdid yourself didn't you. (I think he thought I was a goner haha)
Unfortunately for me, I believe the pig has left the building.
Until next time...cheers :)

I had a near & dear customer comment to me in a message (around the time of my last pink momi dress event) saying enthusiastically..."I sure hope you kept some of the dresses for your girls!"....I pondered her statement & the next day I had an epiphany (haha!..some of you are probably laughing right now & yes, for the record..I did go celebrity stalking today after my post office run FOR the first time in approx 2 months. For the record...I saw NO sign on the gate)
Anyhow, to make a LONG story short...I finally have started making Momi clothes for my own girls to keep :) The staple dress that I keep going back to is their Mother Nature knot dresses & now we have paired it with the chocolate punch dots..a fabulous combo!
