The Big Week!!!!

Holy cow, but last week was a big one!

I have been hemming and hawing about whether blogging about it would be a big jinx (we're big on jinxes around here) and have decided that my faithful blog readers will send out all sorts of positive energy and vibage into the universe thereby nullifying the jinx factor and tipping the scales in our favor (see what my poor husband has to put up with?) so... we put a bid in on a house last week and it was accepted. We have an inspection today, bank stuff this week and if all goes well we will close on or before the 8th of June. That's all I'll say for now, but all good thoughts and quick closing vibage will be happily accepted!

In addition to that, we registered henry for Kindergarten on Friday! His new school is only about 2 blocks from the new house, so that is another big fat plus. We can walk every day if we want! He was whisked away and given a little placement test to make sure he didn't have any serious delays, I filled out a mountain of paperwork, and we were done! Very exciting.

Also very exciting...

Drumroll Please!

Badabadabadabada BUM...

I got my very first shipment of Peru longies on Friday afternoon! They look great and I am very excited to get them moving out to all the folks on the wait list! I have a little photo shoot planned soon, but I can't wait so here are some pictures:

And here's the dealio:

I already emailed the first 100 people on the wait list to see who still wants a pair. I gave everyone a 3 days window to respond, after which time I will start filling orders according to their place on the list. I will then start taking pre-orders from the next 150 people or so, so I can put a nice, big order in with the cooperative for the second shipment. I'll be asking for a deposit for these pre-orders, and will fill them as soon as possible depending on how quickly I can get my next shipment in-hopefully within a month. This way I can order exactly what I need instead of guessing at it and making people wait even longer. Right now I am limiting orders to one pair per person, but that might change later if I have a nice steady stream coming through.

So if you are on the wait list keep an eye out for an email in the next few days.
