Day 45 of 72 : I will not use the "S" word will you?

S C H O O L.....whew!

there I said it.  You are in one of two groups.


1) one who doesn't think about school until a week before..saying " tomorrow school starts?  really?!  and you make a mad dash to the nearest dept. store


2) you are a are already checking items off of your to do list


I am a #2 kinda girl. I have to budget...I feel another confession coming.  Another addiction...I LOVE walking into a store and seeing all of the school supplies...the crayons...opening the box and giving it a big sniff!  Weird maybe but I love love school supplies.  I have a pen fetish.  Have for years.  Anyway - back to the post.  Maybe I should have been a teacher....

Are you a last minute school shopper or do you plan...have you already started shopping?  If so - what are some of your favorite go to stores? Anyone have those " tween " kiddos that are so hard to buy for? Keeping it appropriate but still fashionable?  Me too... here are some of my favorite places to peruse...even if I don't get to buy;)

Mini Boden & Johnny B..

Garnet Hill Kids

Matilda Jane ( there back to school collection is to die for...not really but the flesh says that;)...seriously AND their models are wearing big glasses just like Grace did in my header...too funny!)  Go browse will you?

Another gal...Paige over @ Simple Thoughts always has her girls dressed so cute.  You might check her out as the days draw closer;)  Well..happy Monday and I have some very fun suprises up my sleeve over the next couple of weeks.

Are you using the "S" word yet?
