... cuz I'm leavin' on a jet plane ...

The end of August is here ... and my boys and I are are off on vacation before my first grader starts school! This last week was all about laundry, and house cleaning, and packing. Nothing exciting to blog about. It happens.
I am getting so amped for September though! The fall season will be creepin' in, and I will be back to my regularly scheduled blogging! Product reviews, diet tips and recipes, giveaways and SO MUCH MORE!! Woot!!
So please hang in there for a little bit longer - will be back in full force on Monday, September 5th!

In the meantime, please check out these fabulous favorites of mine!! Muah!! xoxo

(Of course, if your blog is in my sidebar, I read ya every day. These girlies have cute buttons to advertise with - well, except for Mayra's. I snagged her lil' banana pic from her blog and linked it. It was too cute not to post, and I like bananas.)

Music Monday

The current book I am reading is Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. I am about half way through and loving it! With Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon playing the leading roles in the movie (due out next year), this is definitely one you should not miss!

Keeping up with the book's theme, here's Miss Britney and her own little Circus.

What's Up Wednesday ?!?

Since getting a part-time job, my insomnia woes have been cured! I am EXHAUSTED! I am scheduled 4 days a week, weeknights and weekend shifts, but I am also still a momma and a homemaker. I no longer have any trouble sleeping at night!

There are good days and there are bad days ... I think I may be getting ready to cut my hair.

Laundry still hasn't learned to do itself, so my days at home consist of a lot of this lovely chore!

Working at a gym has kicked my bootay back into gear. I am eating better and (gasp!) working out. In fact, I even met with one of our trainers, and I am in pain as I type. It's all good though.

In 10 more days, my 3 boys and I will be packed and off to sunny California ... I can't wait!

Happy Hump Day!!

Thursday's Thoughts ...

Hi Girls! I am so sorry I have been away. August has been so crazy busy, especially with the new job 'n all. We are about to get a mini heat wave for the next few days ... yay!! The tan I got last month has faded thanks to the non-existant summer time weather Oregon has had. I am getting so excited for our trip back down to Palm Desert, CA in just a couple more weeks! Bring on the desert heat!!!
Because the weather has been so gray around here, I have been peeking in on some fall fashion and keeping tabs on my favorites! Here's a few on my list ...

American Eagle .. $39.50

American Eagle .. $39.50

American Eagle .. $44.50

Forever 21 .. $17.80

Forever 21 .. $22.80
So sad that we are in the middle of August and I am already having to prepare for the cooler weather ahead, but for now I am going to enjoy the 90 degree sunshine for the next few days, and drool over the new styles hittin' the stores!
I hope you are all having a fabulous week ... come check out my Fashion Friday tomorrow!! xoxo
