How to Organize Toys in the Living Room

Good morning friends!  Did you have a great weekend?  We made it through the first week of school!  It was a little rough adjusting to the morning routine of getting James up and out the door on time.  And Jordan was not a fan of her big brother going off to school and leaving her behind!  We all miss him, but I’m a creature of routine and thrive best on a schedule, so it’s kind of good for me. And now that we’re a week in, I think we’re better.

I wasn’t as organized last week as I wanted to be,

Thank you so very much for all of your heartfelt comments on yesterday’s Take Care of You post.  That one was definitely from the heart and it feels good to share things like that with you.  When you respond so positively, it feels even better.  I know for sure that we are all in this together.  I appreciate you so much!

And, y’all also were crazy for my first ever Amazon haul!  If you missed it, I did a live try-on session on Stories and saved it to my highlights if you want to check it out.

A Guide To Self Care | How to Take Care of You

I grew up with parents that had me as teenagers.  I’m 43 now and my beautiful Mom is 59.  She had to leave high school for a while after she had me, but went back later to get her diploma.  While she was working and going to school, I stayed home with my Grandma Nola.  What’s funny is that Grandma Nola isn’t my blood relative, but she’s one of the people I’m closest to in my life and one of the most influential.  I love her so very much.

Grandma Nola is one heck of a lady, and at 91,

HUGE Amazon Fashion Haul

Hello friends! It’s a big day over here- the first day of school!  We’ll be dropping off our big third grader this morning and I’ll be trying to hide tears on the way home.  It never fails that I’m a big sap ball on the first day of school.  Who am I kidding, I’m sappy the whole week before too! But, on the other hand, I’m happy to get back to our routine.  I’m in my element when we’re running on schedule and being productive.  When does school start for you?


I’m super excited for today’s post- it’s my first ever Amazon fashion haul

Outfits Lately + Getting Ready for Back to School

Happy Friday friends! It’s a bittersweet weekend over here  as we prepare to send James back to school on Monday!  He’ll be going into third grade and that suddenly seems so old!  At this age, he’s a fascinating mix of maturity and innocence, with a good bit of sweetness still there.  Since he was a baby, I’ve loved every age and 8 is no different.


We’re still waiting for his backpack to arrive and I ordered him these khaki pants and khaki shorts for his school uniform.
