It’s that time of year.
I am going back to school.
I am not as depressed about it this year as the past couple years. In fact, I might even be looking forward to it. But don’t tell Eddie.
While hanging out with the little guy for three months has been fun, I am more than ready to be back in the land of people who do not constantly ask “what dat, Ma Ma?” and point out every. single. thing. that goes by.
I am also ready to be with people I can reason with when they are having a meltdown. Yes, teenagers have meltdowns, but I can talk to them when it happens, not just throw my hands up and walk away from a screaming, kicking pile.
(Of course as I write this, Eddie is sitting in his booster eating bananas and being fricking adorable. It’s his mission in life to make me out to be a liar.)
Anyway…this year I did not go back to school shopping like I usually do.
For one, I don’t have any spare money to shop since I saved my allowance all summer for BlogHer.
For another, I am pregnant. Instead of back to school shopping, I swapped out all my “regular” clothes for the tubs and tubs of maternity clothes I had stored away. It’s not fun to buy clothes you will just grow out of anyway, ya know?
But guess what you WON’T ever be to fat or thin for?
That’s right. And my lovely friend, Stacey from Eleri Evans Designs, hooked me up with some CUTE accessories for back to school!
How cute will my teacher shoes look with these lovely clips?? Plus they can clip in my hair, on my headbands, on my purses…so versatile!
These might be my favorite! I have so much red…and these little poms look so cute on my black ballet flats that I wear to school!
And my room/building keys will never get lost again on a cute key fob like this! Or at least they will be easily identified as MY keys when I leave the in the copy room.
Last year I purchased one of these lovely coffee/tea cozy from Stacey (um, they are totally only $4. You need one), and I am excited to use it for my hot chocolate and decaf coffee this year.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg of what Stacey has to offer.
