The day is finally here and I can hardly believe it. We are headed to Nashville to take our baby girl to start her college career. So many emotions come with this milestone but I'm going to try to focus only on the positive. She's excited and ready to test her wings as she leaves the nest. We are praying for nothing but happiness and success for her and while we know there will be some bumps along the way we also know she is a bright, caring, enthusiastic young woman and has a lot to offer this world. You got this Katie and we couldn't be more proud or love you any more.
I FINALLY got my hands on some birthday cake flavor Halo Top. I've been telling y'all about this ice cream for a while now and been in search of the elusive birthday cake flavor. I'm not even kidding when I tell you that if you go on the search for this frozen delight you'll likely have a hard time finding it. We know the days it comes in at our Whole Foods so I ran down there to check and almost jumped up and down when I realized what I was seeing in the freezer case. Did my eyes deceive me? Could it be? YES...I'd finally found some. So I quickly grabbed THREE (I just knew we'd love it) and scurried to the register. I told the checker I felt bad buying 3 and she said people come in and buy 6 or 8...I guess that makes me a light weight. Here's the scoop (HAHA...see what I did there?) It's AWESOME!!! This is my favorite!!! I almost feel like I shouldn't declare that because now everyone who reads this is going to be grabbing it up, but what can I say? I'm a giver and sharing this info with you is what I do. ;) and P.S. I'm not saying I came home and ate an entire pint by. myself. but I'm not saying I didn't either.
As much as I hate to say it, it's back to school and time to start thinking about fall. On the upside that means Thanksgiving is around the corner and my kids will come home for visit. #happymom
Back to fall...one of my favorite things about fall is the #allthingspumpkin craze. I fall into the pumpkin loving category when it comes coffee, bread, soap and candles. What a weird combination, huh? We were at the mall the other day and went in Bath and Body Works (love this store) and picked up these goodies. I always buy my soap, candles and hand sanitizer from BBW. I've tried other candles and with the exception of the one pictured below which can be found here or here,
Bath and Body Works candles just smell the best. They actually permeate the air in your home with the fragrance of the candle. I burn one a lot and guests always comment on how good it smells. :)
We finally found Katie some new tennies that she likes. They are ASICS and we had to order them and have them sent to Nashville, but they'll be waiting on her when we get there. They are so cute and I just love the colors. This may seem like no big deal to you, but trust me...it's a big deal! We have been looking and looking for some that would meet with her approval.
I picked up my new black Wit & Wisdom jeans that I purchased during the #NSALE and took in to have hemmed. I can't wait to wear them and actually have them be the right length. I've talked about these jeans before here. This is my second pair of this brand and my third pair was on the front porch when we got home last night. I think I'll take them in to be hemmed as well. Love that Nordstrom offers this service. This jeans are soooo comfortable!!! You can see all the varieties they offer here.
What kind of stain remover do you use? If you are looking for something new to try this just might be what you're looking for. Katie had gotten something on a pair of her shorts and grabbed this out of the cabinet and was a-mazed at how well it worked. It's now on our list of things to get when we are picking up her laundry supplies for college this weekend. I love the vintage look and feel the packaging has. You just wet the bar and rub it on the stain then wash as usual. It really works great.
So there's five for you this week. Wish me luck as we take this girl to school. We have 3 tickets for the flight to Nashville and only 2 for the return. Sniff, sniff.
