I had a couple of special request items come in via my Etsy shop:
Skulls Camera Strap for Steph
Check out Steph's post about the straps here. (Thanks for the shout out!)
A couple of mermaid towels:
As well as a nursing cover with matching burp cloths:
There are a couple of other things that I need to complete but they have been put on the back burner because last weekend we MOVED! Not far from our old place but it has been just as hectic nonetheless. The timing made things difficult as we had just renewed our lease at our old place not two weeks or so before. But my rockstar of a husband made things happen (and now I have to be nice to him for way too long.)
Check out the view from our front door. Talk about lush, green and rainforest like!
I just listed two of the smaller/shorter mermaid towels in my Etsy shop. The sad thing is they've been done for WEEKS but I never got around to taking pictures and listing them. My apologies for the backdrop (GARAGE) as it is raining right now! Plus I have an injured foot (post for another day) so I had to take the picture where I could get the best light - which is still lacking. *Sigh*
I still have another one of the shorter towels about half way done. It's pink and teal. Pretty cute! It'll be listing in my shop soon (*keeping my fingers crossed*)
While you can see the towels in my Etsy shop I'll show them here as well:
The last one is not available for sale but is very similar to the one that I have listed - the only difference is the trim. Isn't Gabby a beautiful little mermaid?
Today is Kailani's first day of school. (Didn't I JUST write this post?!?) Not only is it the first day of school but the first day at a new school. This morning was full of anxiousness, excitement, nervousness......but also happiness. And because she is happy this mama is relieved.
And sad. (But...I did NOT cry this time! HA!)
While most parents seem to be excited to send their kids back to school I am a bit bummed. I honestly love having her home (but homeschooling is out of the question!) She is such a sweet girl and our summer was awesome. I can't believe how fast it flew! I'm gonna miss having her around all day!
Anyways, every year on the first day of school I make her a cake. Just an FYI - making and decorating cakes are not my thing. Eating them - yes, that's my thing. :)
Here she is this morning...her first day of 3rd grade followed by pictures of her first day of 2nd grade, 1st grade and kindergarten:
It's amazing to see how much she's grown and changed over the years!
Best of luck to her and all the other kids that have returned to school already! Teachers too!
