Night before the first day of school

The girls lie sleeping like angels in their beds while I have been scurrying around the house prepping for their first day of school. 
This is the one day a year that I am organized.

It's also the one day a year that I pull out this little gadget called an iron.

I had to pause and snap a picture of the ridiculousness:
I don't enjoy walking around without shoes on in my house...especially late at night when the centipedes tend to here I am in my bed clothes and Sunday heels.  Just ironing away in my basement. If Stacy London could see me right now...

Lunches made...(minus the turkey sandwiches)

My annual tokens of wisdom, shared....

Monday workout, planned...

And all of it by 1:03 am

Which seemed like the perfect time to break for a snack.

And that is how I do.

***A little update on the back to school situation.  My girls rolled out of bed at the crack of dawn and are completely ready for school at 6:40 am.  They don't leave for another 2 hours.  They might just be a little excited.

And I'm living on like 5 minutes of sleep, back to bed I go.

Beach Babes

My heart is so full of love for these crazy people.

(If you zoom in... you'll know what I'm talking about when I say 'crazy people'.)

J got pooped on.  

Grandpa Bret and his little munch

After the beach we headed over to one of our favorite places to eat.  
This is Grandpa Bret one day before he turned the big 5-0!  He is now officially and old man. ;)
But a happy one.




We finished our school shopping today and thought we'd pick up a back pack for the little man too.  
He thought it was "awesome."  which is the word he uses to describe everything he likes.

This is my sidekick who can make me laugh like no one else.  
In a few short months she will be as tall as me...and I'm embarassed to admit, that we have already been sharing some of our clothes.  5th grade, here she comes!
