Yesterday and today I took vacation days from my day job. I am not really on vacation off to some tropical island, but instead it's a little bit of what I call "mental health days" and a staycation rolled into one. I got Miss M off to her first day of school yesterday morning:
|On Miss M: Shirt (Justice for Girls), Shorts (Arizona, JCPenney), Shoes (Converse)|
I learned that this kid was soooo excited to be going into 2nd grade! I also learned that she would like to decide what to wear on her own without my help. She did do a great job picking out her first day of school outfit I must say.
I also learned that although I don't really have a green thumb when it comes to gardening, that I don't always kill everything that I plant:
These daisies were on the brink of death not too long ago, but with a little bit of TLC, I brought these little guys back to life! This is a huge accomplishment for me, because I killed a cactus that my husband has had since he was in 1st grade!
I also learned that being home all alone doing some business stuff (our new family business), doing loads of laundry, and blogging, that it was so quiet! I don't get peace and quiet very often so this was great, but weird. I also learned that my dog likes to go through the doggy door every five minutes. I wonder if he does that while we are gone all day?
I also learned that after seeing pictures of me in this shirt, that my boobs are not big enough to fill out this top!

Although I don't think I will be rocking this top again, I do like the colors paired with the mustard yellow skirt. It was perfect for a day hanging also at the bank and the post office. Another thing I learned on my day off, the post office is packed with cute little old ladies and little old men sending off their packages!
Do you ever take your photos and realize it's not what you thought when you looked in the mirror?
I know most of you are starting your three day holiday to celebrate Labor Day and the last big hurrah of the summer. Have a safe and happy weekend! Kayla will be back with a post tomorrow rocking her new haircut and color!
