Boy, it’s been busy around here the last couple of days – birthday party, shopping sprees for school clothes & shoes, Costco trip (one of my absolute favorite things to do), mama feverishly running around looking for a cute backpack (so bummed that Hannah Anderson was all sold out, but found one at Gap Kids)…..whew! I will say though that at this point my daughter has quite a fabulous wardrobe and I am completely jealous! And the shoes, THE SHOES….sooo cute. Ugh, I SO need a new fall/winter wardrobe (in order to spare the hubby a coronary, let’s keep that on the down-low).
So the little peanut’s first day of school was today and it went great! She had no problems whatsoever and happily leapt out of the car when the teacher came out to get her. To my surprise though, I found myself getting a little choked up as were waiting in car line and totally shed a tear or two as I headed out. It was all good though…I continued the normal morning routine of going to the gym. It was weird being there by myself, but also strangely liberating at the same time. This is definitely going to be a learning experience for both of us!
I'm your not-so-typical SAHM to an amazing, brilliant little girl and wife to a pretty great guy who just happens to adore us! By sharing my (somewhat random) musings on this beautiful mess that is our life, I hope to take an honest look at the often crazy reality of being a mama/wife/girly girl/frugalista, all the while making sure I've got my lip gloss on & feeling fabulous! Please feel free to email me with any questions - thanks for stopping by!
