It has been a long day. Can it be tomorrow already, or better yet the weekend?
After the kids were tucked into bed I took a very long, much needed bubble bath with a couple of my favorite things! It was just what I needed! Here's hoping that tomorrow and Friday will fly by!!

*blogging from my phone, hopefully the post isn't all weird.

Wordless{ish} Wednesday: No More Pictures Mom!

When Harper does not want her picture taken (which seems to be a lot of the time lately), this is what I get:

I tend to take pictures of just about everything (I can't help it, I want to have photos to go along with the memory) (<--Cheesy much?) (Haha), so hopefully she will go through the "no more pictures" phase quickly!

*This was right after her pre-school assessment, which she rocked!

Wordless{ish} Wednesday: First Day of School

 Love this boy!!

Atticus was so excited this morning, which was awesome since last week he was saying that he never wanted school to start back up.
I found these cute first day printables here .

Trial Run.

School starts tomorrow for Atticus, and let's just say that this summer he has had practically no real schedule. So, this morning we did a trial run. We had a rough beginning with a lot of grumpy faces and a little bit of whining. While we were eating breakfast, we talked about the new school year. Like what he was excited/nervous about. By the time it was time to "leave" for school everyone was clean, dressed, fed, HAPPY and ready to walk out of the house! Atticus even said, "That was really fun and I am excited for the real thing!" It was seriously a huge relief for me. Here's hoping tomorrow goes just as smooth if not more so!

Ready for second grade!

Pinterest Project.

I was in desperate need of a way to get my jewelry out of the mess of a jewelry box that I had. So, I of course turned to Pinterest! I wanted something that would keep my necklaces from getting tangled and something that would keep me from losing earrings. The jewelry frame fit the bill perfectly!

All you will need is:
- a frame
-little hooks (.80 for a pack at Wal Mart)
-screen/mesh (.86 for a yard at Ace Hardware)
-drill with little drill bit

First: grab a frame, any frame. It doesn't even need a back or glass. Choose a pretty color (I favor yellow) and start painting! Let dry.

Next: cut your screen to fit your frame. Pull tight across the back of the frame and staple all over till it is nice and secure. Then decide where you want your hooks and mark it. Drill little holes and screw in the hooks.

Last: hang up, add jewelry and admire your crafty-ness!

This project was so simple and cheap! I absolutely love the outcome! You should totally make one. I promise you won't regret it!
