This Week....


I think I survived the first full week of school.  I guess I still have to make it through today, but since I woke up, we'll go ahead and count it.

Now that I'm living for the weekend, I try to make them extra awesome.  So last weekend that required some lake time.......



And a little horseback riding......



I even won a giveaway over the weekend!  A big thanks to Red Rose Vintage for supplying me with Pumpkin Spice Latte funds.........


 
Then during the week my August Birchbox arrived.  How did they know I needed a new razor.......



Finally, my week was topped off with a gift from a kiddo in my class........



This might win the award for grossest gift ever.

No, I have not sampled one.

Yet.

  7. Horseback riding?! I would love to try it!! I dunno about doing that gracefully though... I'd prob be choking the crap outta the horse praying for my life!

    Love that we got a razor this month in our Birchbox... but I did have to look at those little tanning packets closely b/c they kinda resemble another small shiny package (of protection).. get my drift?

    Happy weekend!

    xo, Bev
