The one and only thing I did manage to accomplish was start and finish Eva's school clothes shopping. With tax free weekend coming up here I was hesitant to buy much but after receiving quite a few coupons and an itch to go shopping yesterday was the day. And oh my was this a good weekend for shopping. The mall wasn't as crowded as it will be coming tax free weekend and I felt like the deals were better. Most stores are already putting out fall while still hanging on to some of their summer stuff. Which around here is a GOOD thing since we will still have some pretty hot weather for the next few months. I even scored a ton of goodies from Abercrombie Kids (on sale of course). Eva is gonna be one well dressed like kindergartener!
I got Eva the required new tennis shoes-an adorable pair of Nike's-but really wanted a "cute" pair of shoes that aren't sandals or flip flops. Let's face it, they just aren't real practical for a little one running around on the playground. So after I came home and while I still had the itch, I started looking around online and came across the cutest pair of Toms. They were perfect-covers her whole foot, neutral color, and a bonus I don't have to tie them! Perfect!!!
Natural Burlap Bimini Tiny Toms Classic
I've been thinking about her backpack and lunch box for a few weeks now and made the jump a little while ago.
I also went with this adorable Vera Bradley lunch date in the Folkloric print. I got an e-mail from VB one day and saw this bag was on sale, I think I paid $14 dollars for it and it's quite roomie, has an easy to clean liner, and a "luggage tag" to put Eva's name. So not a bad deal compared to what they usually cost.
I also picked up this plain pink sandwich holder from Target in the $1 section and added Eva's monogram with my Silhouette Cameo.
Now I just have to figure out the plan for our First Day of School tradition(s). I want to start something not overly ambitious, something I can actually do every year and for any other children we may have.

I really can't believe she's going to be starting Kindergarten so soon. She's gone to "school" since she was about 15 months old so hopefully she will transition smoothly!
