Friday Faves: First Week of School!!

Friday, August 10, 2018

Hallelujah it's finally Friday!!!!  The first week back to school is always the hardest and I am exhausted.  I am going to turn my phone on silent tonight and sleep in tomorrow morning!!!

Today's post is going to be pretty short because I feel like I've been in a fog this entire week and literally haven't taken any photos!  But before I get to my favorite things, I've been thinking a lot about infertility and adoption and so I hope to have a more "real" post out next week about my feelings currently.  

And we are still taking donations through PayPal for our adoption!!  I know August is such a hard month for some people because of all the back to school fees, but we are so very appreciative of anything donated!  Things are getting so close to being done and getting ready to go active!!  Eek!  And once we go active, we need about 15k-20k just in case we get matched with an agency that requires a match fee.  So for those who still want to donate to our fund, you can through paypal at    THANK YOU!!!

I didn't get a photo from the first day of school and I wish I would have!!  I wore a cute yellowish dress from Anthro that I snagged a couple of years ago.  I stayed at school until 4 that afternoon working on things for the next day and then I came home to do more school work.  I made myself stop for dinner and then after dinner I relaxed in our bed drinking a La Croix and watching a Hallmark Christmas movie haha!  My favorite way to unwind!

I absolutely LOVE that Lilly finally has brought out longer hemlines.  Until now, I really have avoided buying lots of Lilly because all of the dresses are too short for me to wear to school and sadly, most of the clothes I buy I have to make sure I can wear them to school.  I had a gift card to use before our beach trip, so I picked up this dress.  I threw a blue jean jacket on over this for school since my district requires wider straps for the shoulders.

I hope y'all have a great weekend!!!  I'll be working on our adoption profile book and scanning in all of our documents into a dropbox for our consultants!!
