Stitch Fix #4

I scheduled for my fourth fix to come once teacher in-service started to help pep me up!  So here is what it had...

I was excited to try the black pants and as comfy as they were they were a little short on me.  It was an in-between of a capri and ankle pant which doesn't work the best for me.
I tried them with the Aqua top that came in my fix.  I liked the color. It it was a little too long and baggy on me.

I received this top but I felt a little boxy in it.
When I saw the next top I thought no but then I out it on and liked it...especially for school/church so this ended up being my only keeper.

The last thing was a necklace.  I mentioned wanting a silver necklace and although I liked this...I think I want all silver so I can put it with anything.
Another fun fix!  Can't wait to schedule my next one.

The past few weeks & catching up!

This is a summer of firsts for B man.  The boys and I went to see the movie "Inside Out" a week ago and it was such a sweet movie.  Since the movie has been out for awhile there wasn't a lot of people there.  The boys got snacks and I think I spent over $40 for this adventure.  They're worth it though!
We also took a trip to Fred's Dollar Store mainly to find dippin dots.

I took the boys to the dentist last week which was another first for Bennett.
Lance has been working a lot with dealer meeting and on Sunday he had to take a boat out of town.  Landon rode with him and they went to Bass Pro.

While Bennett and I went to Walmart to get a small pool.

I think our deer friend wanted to join us
It's easy to fill and empty so no more getting yucky and me throwing away.
I even set it up on the upper deck so the boys can play and I can be inside if I need to (while still watching them).
I needed a new license plate and of course I went with the advocare one.  
Landon went shopping and we got some items for his bathroom.

We received Landon's teacher letter which was a fun mail day.  He'll be with Ms. Rita next year and we're excited about that.  His backpack and lunchbox came in and we bought his school supplies Thursday night.  I think we're ready for 1st! 
My school pile is starting to grow.  I have ordered some stuff for my room and I put together my new center chairs and table which the boys seem to like.

Last week we could get back into our classrooms so it's was go time.  I like to get mine set up quick and then enjoy my end of summer at home with the boys.  

The boys have been going with me and they actually play really well (plus it wears them out).

We got out back to school haircuts before going up to work.

Yesterday Lance took the boys with him to Viola and I stayed to have a little "me" time.  I finished the two things up for Landon's supplies, ran to get some Clinique stuff, got a pedicure since I had a gift card, and finished up in my room.  I think I'm ready except for the open house stuff which comes from the office.  
The boys had fun at nanas house playing with cousins.
Jed ended up getting a hook stuck in his thumb so they had to make a trip to the ER.  It was a late night for sure.  And luckily he's doing fine...he's tough!
Oh and last thing....I made my first wreath!  I watched a YouTube video and tried to figure it out.  I think for my first it was good!

It was tighter on one side but that's ok!

And the finished project!

Stitch Fix #3

So #3 fix came last week and it was a good one.  I had mentioned finding the pants from fix #2 in a solid black and a jean jacket for later.  My stylist delivered both in this fix.
I first tried on the black pants with the blue shirt included.  I liked the pants but just wasn't 100% about them so I ended up sending them back.  I loved the blue top so that was a keeper!

I received a gray printed top but it was too short and just didn't fit right so that was returned.

I next went to the jean jacket.  I liked it with my maxi dresses but with other outfits it seemed too short on me.  And even though it was stretchy and really comfy I just couldn't keep it plus it was more than I'd want to pay so I returned it.

I also got the long gold necklace which I loved and it was a definite keeper!  I've already worn it out when we went to dinner with our church.
So I kept two out of the five items.  It was fun and it was easy!  I scheduled the next fix to come once school starts so until then!
