First Day of Big Girl School

This morning at 7:30am, this is where our school day began…


on the couch watching Oswald…

And then we dressed in our First Day Best…..


She wasn’t happy about leaving her OJ at home…

And then we go to school.


Brooklyn is only 3 so she doesn’t go to Pre-K or Kindergarten, but she does go to a HeadStart class.

This year will be harder though, because her class is a long one.

The first bell rings at 7:50am and the last bell rings at 2:30pm.

That’s too long for mama but I have to adjust!


Hope you have a great week!

I forgot!!

She’s up!

Yes, my vintage chandelier for the laundry room has been put in her place! And she is gorgeous!!!




I am loving her! She brightens not only the room, but my day! I cannot believe how well she looks in this room!

One step closer to completion!

Thrift Stores and Garage Sales!!


Living in Frisco we had plenty of garage sales but I never found too many thrift stores, not good ones anyways.

And the nearest Goodwill was 30mins!

So since the move (2 weeks), I’ve been to 3 garage sales and one really cute thrift store.

The thrift store is called Twice Around and it benefits a shelter for abused women and children. A very nice little set up and a great cause!

Here are a few goodies I found today and last night at TJ Maxx!!


I first saw these birds on Bower Power and loved them! So imagine my joy when I saw the lovely pair at the thrift store for $5…plus this month is 50% off, so make that $2.50!!!


Four glass candles sticks  - 10cents each!


Lamp and Shade for Brooklyn’s room - $2.60


This little heavy fella was only $2.00 on clearance at TJ Maxx

And last but certainly not least…my non-clearance, full priced TJ Maxx item -


This bird cage book end…I love it!!! So vintage shabby chic! But it was only $7.99 so I couldn’t pass it up!

Well I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
