1st Day of School; Giveaways & Blog Sale Updates

Hello, Beautiful!

Today is my son's first day of school. He started first grade today! I can't believe he's already in first grade; it feels like I was just taking him to preschool yesterday! He was nervous, but what kid isn't just a little nervous on their first day at such a young age. I'm so proud of him and I can't wait for him to come home to tell me how his first day of first grade went.

Here he is this morning, with an un-planned outfit. He was supposed to wear a different shirt with those pants & shoes, but somehow that shirt went missing in the mess of our house and we had to go with a back-up outfit. He loves his "rock star" hair, which he's been wearing off and on since he was 3 years old, and requested that look for this morning. His outfit is completely by H&M (white t-shirt, green plain shirt, grey pants) which was only about $23 in total for those three pieces, and his shoes are by Shaun White for Target. We decided to re-use his book bag from last year because despite some small stains on the bottom there really isn't anything wrong with it and he still likes it. His book bag is by Volcom. His lunchbox is from Target.

Here he is showing off his new shoes...

And showing off his lunch bag...

Looking nervous...

And the one picture that I think he looks so much older in...

Okay, enough proud momma bragging... onto some updates...

You have until this Wednesday night to enter my four giveaways. In case you don't know which giveaways I have going, here is the list:

I plan to select the winners on Thursday! Winners will be contacted by email. I'll also make an announcement on my blog of the winners. Good luck everyone!

Blog Sale:
Now that my son is back in school I finally have time to catch up on life, and catch up on finalizing the blog sale! I'm not going to put an exact date on when the blog sale will launch, but I can promise you it will launch in September. I decided not to promise any specific dates because it seems like whenever I set a date, or specific time range, life throws a curve ball at me and delays my progress. Maybe if I give a less specific time range, saying a month instead of a specific day or week, life will give me a break and allow me to get it done without interruptions.

As promised, those that left a comment with their name & email will be the first to shop my blog sale. If you want to be added to that list click here to go to that blog post to leave your info. I also feel bad that it's taken me all this extra time to launch the blog sale, so to all those that are on that pre-sale list, I will add a free gift with your blog sale order! Details will be listed in the email that you'll receive notifying you that the blog sale is ready to shop.

Daily Posts Coming! Woo hoo!
Now that my son is back in school I have time to blog every day! Woo hoo! I know it's not required to post every day, but it's fun to! I know I personally like to check out blogs who update content frequently and I always feel like I let my readers down if I don't have something new for you every day.

You can expect a new post every day beginning September 1st! But that doesn't mean you won't see posts until September 1st; I still have to post about my August Favorites & Not-So-Favorites (and maybe another NOTD post or swatch post).


  1. You sure are a proud mom!! I love his rock star hair ;)

  2. Congrats on getting your little one off to school :)

  3. Oh my goodness! I just wanna pick him up and hug him! He is so cute and I love the hawk. Hope he enjoys school.
