Scarf Swap!!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I am linking up with Meredith over at The Tichenor Family .
She hosted her 3rd Annual Scarf Swap and I am so happy I signed up!!

I was paired up with the sweet and lovely Courtney of

If you haven't check her blog out yet you really should.
I think she is just about the sweetest person.
I love reading her blog.

I totally goofed on taking a photo of what I sent Courtney, so I am
going to "borrow" her photo. {thanks Courtney}

I was so unsure about what to buy.
She and I have very similar tastes. We are very "basic" in our color
palettes, but she mentioned she liked a "pop" of color.

I saw this and thought it would be perfect for her:

{after seeing her post today and how good it looks on her,
I think I may have to go get one for myself}

And she was dead on perfect in her choice for me!!

So perfect and neutral.
I have worn it TWICE already!!!
I love it!
I love the pattern, it is perfect!
Thank you so much Courtney!!
And thank you too Meredith for hosting such an awesome swap,
I can't wait until next year!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

School Days

We officially entered Kindergarten!
So far we love it!

Here are a few first day photos...
{Please excuse the was dark and yucky that day}

{you know I had to coordinate their outfits}

{they love being silly for the know I wanted a nice shot!}

{Coop's face cracks me up...this is his serious/mad face}

{Poor Coopie...he was asking, "Where's Case?"...all day!!

He was getting it confused with where daddy goes and was telling us
"Case at work"!
Now he knows he's at school.
We love his teacher, she is so sweet and kind.
Adjusting to all day school has not been easy, but he is a pro now.
He is lucky to have his older cousin at school...which has been a complete Godsend!!
{Thanks Han!!}
So fingers crossed for a super year!

Prayers today for the loved ones senselessly lost.
Prayers for those heroes who gave us hope and restored faith in the common man.
Prayers that we can continue to grow this great nation and rise above.

We will never forget.

Fun Finds

Days away from school starting ( cringe) and feeling like I need a little
"pick me up" we stopped into Home Goods and I was thrilled to see they had some
Lilly items. Mostly stationery, but they had these:

I had to pick one up, since they were only $4.99 and the bag is really big.
I recently purchased one from a school fundraiser and paid twice that.
They also had lots of these: 

A these for the little ones:

Super prices, just wish I had a little girl to give them too!!

My sister Kiki is expecting a boy after New Years!!! Any baby boy suggestions are welcomed!!

So we are busy getting our last minute things for school next week.
Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday weekend!!
