cute denim skirt for 19
This skirt for the holidays - 14.50 (75% off!)
I didn't find much for my boys, but there is lots to look at!
Ms. C scored this, she loves cats (14 dollars)
Total came to about 88 dollars so off I went to http://www.retailmenot.com/ for a coupon code. I LOVE this site, it has saved me a LOT of money. I share codes on there too when I come across them in the spirit of paying it forward. They advise to use code 909011410 and take 20% of your order of 100 dollars (good through 9/30). I add 2 turtlenecks (which I basically got for free) put in my code and voila, my order is marked down to 80 dollars and several adorable, great quality outfits are coming our way. I'm a proud peacock ;) If you like Talbots Kids like me, check it out before it's gone forever! xo, Brie

This time of year is always so crazy... I've been a bad blogger and am working on getting my act together! With school starting up, fall sports, school changes, Liam's bday (Happy Birthday Liam xoxox) etc I feel like my Jenga tower is on the verge of toppling at any moment.
We had a great weekend with my parents here for a visit and we had a party for Liam to celebrate his 8th bday on Saturday night. He is such a sweet boy and makes his crazy September bday so easy for frazzled mom. Rice Krispy treats for bday school snack - so nice and easy and way less stressful than frosting 30 cupcakes at 11pm!! Jersey Boy bagels for breakfast and pizza hut (his favorite) for dinner - these were all his choices, he's the best!!
I did have a creative spurt this weekend and made up a bunch of headbands to coordinate with the Disney princesses. These could be the perfect accessory for a cute Halloween costume, and I like them because they aren't so "over the top" that the girls would feel weird about wearing them to school! I see I forgot to make one to represent poor Princess Jasmine and I am going to remedy that tonight. My most sincere apologies to Jasmine! It also appears I have promoted Tinkerbelle to princess status as she "only a fairy". My response to that is - I like fairies - so there! These will debut this week with a special price of 10 dollars - a cute stocking stuffer or birthday party present!! Get yours Here!
I like the idea of channeling my inner princess and I am going to practice what I preach today. I have been feeling a boatload of stress lately (none of which I can talk about just yet) and I am going to take it easy and take baby steps until things become more manageable. I am a firm believer of taking care of yourself in order to be a better care provider! Try it and see :) xo, Brie

Here is one of my favorite pictures of the lights they put in the towers place to honor the lives lost that day. There have been years in the past on a clear night when we can see the beams of light from our backyard. It takes your breath away. xo, Brie
