My Favorite Things: Apples

I'm always browsing etsy looking for new & different things. I'm amazed at all of the creative people who come up with the most adorable stuff! I thought I'd start sharing some of the cute things I find with you!

Since mostly everyone is in back-to-school mode, I thought I'd pick APPLES for My Favorite Things theme. Our back-to-school date is September 6th around here, I know the kids are super excited. (ha,ha!). My Jaelyn will be starting Pre-K this year as you've heard me talk about. I have mixed emotions!!

Anyways, here are some adorable things that MIGHT make back-to-school for your little one a tad bit sweeter!! ;-)

Look at this adorable apple dress.. seriously cute, right?
Find it at Three Yellow Starfish 

What a cute way to store your kids sandwich for lunch?  I love this idea!
Find this & other cute sandwich bags on Bells and Unicorns. 

Of COURSE she needs some adorable apple hair clips for the first day! Too cute!
Look at all the adorable hair clips over at Happy Hair Day! 

Want to make sure everyone knows who those crayons belong to?
These labels are perfect!
Go over & get yourself some at Little Bean Boutique.

Want to kiss up a little? Make sure you start out on the right
foot with the new teacher?
Buy Her/Him THIS! (ok, really more her but hey.. whatever). LOL!
Actually, I just think it's really cute and would make a
wonderful present for that special teacher!
Check out more awesome jewelry at Galway Designs.

There are many, many more things to discover over at Etsy!
Take a minute from your busy schedule & go shop a little... tell them I sent you!

Flood Waters

It has been crazy raining here. Almost every backroad, smalltown bridge is out because there is no where for the water to go. It took me longer to get to work this morning because everyone is scrambling to take this road or that road due to the overflowing water. I'm not even sure if the Lake near my house is going to make it.. I'm afraid that bridge will be gone by the time I leave because it's raining, AGAIN! It's nuts!

Here are some pictures from our local news station.
I didn't take these, but as you can see.. it's not good!

If you get a minute today, please say a little prayer for everyone in our area. There is so much damage and well, it's just plain scary! No one has been seriously injured that I have heard so that in itself is a small miracle we can be thankful for. Let's hope this rain stops soon.

On a lighter note... my giveaway from The Homemade Way is ending tonight.
