Back to school shopping is a chore. Sure, it may be exciting at first which is great to get the kids excited about going to school but it's still a chore. Even more so for parents of left-handed kids who struggle to find scissors that their kids can use.

Local Goodie Box Swap Postmarked: South Carolina!

Local Goodie Box Swap Postmarked: South Carolina!  #BBSantainJuly

A few weeks ago, the SITS Tribe I belong to decided to try a gift box swap for Christmas in July. Keeping with the Secret Santa theme - no one knew who got who and today we reveal what we got and from who!

My Secret Santa is Whitney from Earl-Leigh Designs! She writes about family, fitness, and fun.

I was really excited when I realized who my partner was because I already knew we had similar tastes from following her blog for the last year.

I'm so excited to be sharing some really cool back to school finds that you might not know about from some really fantastic companies. Starting with breakfast and what to carry your books and supplies in and ending with some ideas for what to put in the lunch box.

Girls Day Out!

This weekend my soon-to-be kindergartener and I had a mini day out. We kicked it off at Kingwood Center in Mansfield, Ohio for a bridal shower. RD was so excited to be included that she picked out a new outfit and her first pair of wedges!

Kingwood Center in Mansfield, Ohio for a Bridal Shower

Kingwood Center is a 48-acre estate that was opened to the public in 1953. It is a beautiful place, just stunning really.

After the shower, we headed off to Gordmans in Aurora to do some back-to-school shopping. I guess it would be just school shopping since this will be her official entry to the world of academics.
