Well guys, we made it through another one! It feels like everyone is in a frantic, mad dash to finish all their summer activities before next week. So much to see and do these days! I'm looking forward to a baby shower on Saturday and hopefully a very lazy Sunday. Theo has finally agreed to watch all the Harry Potter movies, so we've been plowing through them.
Unlike everyone else, I'm counting the days to Labor Day weekend because we have a little getaway planned, and I desperately need to get out of the city for a few days. I just HAD to get myself a new weekender bag, and while I was at it a matching backpack as well. I couldn't help it, you guys. If you're gonna travel, it may as well be in style! And the backpack will serve me well all fall and winter, when I prefer to use backpacks over purses or totes anyways. Does anyone else find it hugely annoying to try and get a purse over their shoulder while wearing an enormous puffer jacket? Oh, you guys use stylish coats as opposed to walking around in giant sleeping bags? Cool.
Please enjoy some links for your eyeballs and a little ditty for your heart!
I will always love back-to-school shopping.
