Boy oh boy does it feel good to be back home! I took a couple of weeks off from blogging as we were on vacation with our family and then I was on a bachelorette trip with friends! You may have seen my pics of where I’ve been from my Insta Stories. I wanted to make sure that I was spending quality time with friends and family and not glued to my phone or computer. It definitely is hard to juggle everything; who else feels the same way?! Especially now that schools and extracurricular activities are back in full swing, it’s difficult to find time for myself. Speaking of which, who says that back to school essentials are just for the kids? There’s plenty of to-get items and to-do lists I’ve made for myself as the parish guild and nonprofit guild I am apart of are kicking off soon! I’m excited! On top of that, there’s preschool, mom’s day out, dance class, play dates, grocery lists, planning meals, etc., etc., etc. Below I’ve put together a back-to-school roundup for kids and moms, alike!
I’m obsessed with everything in this roundup! Anytime there’s lists, calendars, or sticky notes involved, I get excited as I am such a planner! I love Skip Hop backpacks and the hedgehog is super adorable (#10). They have so many animals to choose from and they are perfect for kids who are going to daycare, or a mom’s/parent’s day out, or even for traveling with little ones. Madeline had the owl and the kuala, and I just recently got the unicorn for Olivia as she is starting mom’s day out shortly. (I take them to get personalized. If you live in the Omaha area, go to Mine Custom Gifts & Embroidery – they do an awesome job! Highly recommend!) Who else needs to write things down in order to remember them? How fun are the Rifle Paper Co. floral pencils (#5)? They have several prints and designs to choose from!
I love #7 – the art caddy. I feel like I’m constantly cleaning up after my kids and trying to organize where to put everything. This is perfect for keeping their crayons, markers, and paint brushes organized! I’m loving #12 – the PBK school house cork board. It’s perfect for hanging up those art projects that the kids bring home from school! I may just have to get one myself! 🙂 Lastly, I run on coffee. It’s my fuel. And, I’m constantly on the go so the travel mug (#14) is perfect for getting the kids out the door early in the morning and heading to work, meetings, or other events on your agenda for the day!
Good luck getting back into the swing of things and happy shopping!
