Hair & A School Bag
I go way too long between haircuts (another thing I do to try & stretch our dollars). I usually have about two weeks where I'm hating my hair. Today, I'd had enough of looking like a shaggy dog, so I pulled it back into a ponytail. Only problem is that the front half isn't long enough to fit in the ponytail. No problem, right. I can rock this. I actually do think it looks cute. So this is how I'll be wearing my hair until my appointment Saturday morning.
Sadie starts preschool tomorrow. Oh goodness, am I nervous & excited at the same time. I decided to go with a tote bag for her school bag this year, rather than a backpack. This one was $2.99 at Pat Catans & I just ironed some wonder under to some fabric, traced some leaves, peeled off the backing & ironed it onto the bag. Done! It's a nice sturdy canvas. It fits her folders perfectly & has enough room for art projects and such. We're good to go.
**Just a heads up. I will be holding a silent auction here on the blog this Thursday for Design Mom's Nie Nie Day. All proceeds to benefit the Nielson family. I've been working the past few days on something special. :)
