September 1st!

Well, happy September 1 to YOU!  Today is my very favorite day of the year :).  
September 1 just makes me happy.
Here is a little randomness for my favorite day of the year :)….

Ahhhh…it’s been a lot of Smith and me now that Kensington is in school.  It’s a really bittersweet time.  We both love the one on one time but we also both miss Kensington.  Around 1:00 every day, he starts saying “is it time to leave yet?” over and over again (and that’s two hours before we leave to pick her up!).  I’m going to really treasure this time with just my boy :).

She was not super excited about Day 2 of school.  She woke up that morning and told me it was too long of a day and she didn’t want to go back.  Sorry kid…you have like 16 more years of school in your future.
But by Day 4, she was super excited to go back!  And on Friday afternoon when I picked her up, she said she didn’t want a 3-day weekend because she loved school so much :).  I’m sure some days she’ll love it and some days she won’t…but at least she ended her week on a high!

He’s always holding my hand.  Always.  I love looking down at that face.
I couldn’t agree more.

 On Tuesday, my friend Jeni told me I should buy these cargo pants because she got them and they were so cute and comfy.  
So, I looked at the reviews online (all raving about these pants) and ordered them.  They arrived Friday afternoon and the minute I put them on I knew I was in love.  They are so comfy, the material is nice and kind of stretchy (not tight at all!) but thick and well made.  I’m telling you, I will be wearing them all fall and winter.  Love.  Love. Love.

If you missed Pin-spired on Friday, click here to see it.  It’s all about Buffalo Check and Leopard!
From my Pin-spired post on Friday, so many of you were raving about these cheetah print booties.  Aren’t they cute?!?!  After trying on my pants, I thought this might be the perfect outfit for September 1st…
Speaking of perfection…over on my food blog today, we’re getting all geared up for Fall!  I also announced the winner of Pin it to Win it over there too!!  Click here to see the details and who won!
Happy Labor Day friends!!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Buying the toms now! I loved my gray toms last years and am loving the in between season booties you recommended from sole society! Thanks shay!

    I'm on the fence about the toms,,,I may need to just order them. Do the booties run the same as the toms shoes for sizing??! Anyone??? And girl September 1 is almost as exciting for me as Christmas. Now if the temps would go from 98 to 60 I would be even happier. Happy Monday

    I have those Cheetah booties and LOVE them. Can't wait to pair them with Buffalo Check.

    I have the cheetah booties and they run true to size….I actually got a half size bigger than I wear in regular shoes but I have some foot issues…

    • kimm atwood September 2, 2014 at 2:50 am

      Thanks for sharing about the sizing! Appreciate it!!! Off to order them I go!!!!

    Would you mind telling me what shoes Kensington is wearing in the first pic?

  • Marty September 2, 2014 at 1:48 am

    I bought the leopard TOMS last year and LOVE THEM. I was concerned that I might be too old to wear them. The last thing I want to do is look like I'm trying too hard. But they are seriously so cute and I wear them all the time. They go with everything! 🙂

    Completely agree!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE Sept. 1st!!!

    How did I COMPLETELY FAIL TO NOTICE September 1st this year?! Gah!

    The second day of school is always the hardest. Hugs to Kensington. Only 16+ more years to go! 🙂
