Sweet Treats for Teachers

I'm happy to report that the kids had a great first week of school! My little Punkette loves Kindergarten and my son has declared 2nd Grade to be "totally cool".
Here's a pic of the little treat bags we put together for their teachers at the end of the week.

We used small cellophane bags, added some shredded filler, a big shiny apple, some caramel dipping sauce and tied it all up with a pretty ribbon.
They were a big hit!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

August has been insane.

I finished the condo in 7 days. I was in paradise for a solid week and only dipped my toes in the water one time. It was crazy, but the condo turned out great! I'm working on a big post, complete with before and after pics. Until then, enjoy the sunset from our new balcony...

As soon as we returned home, we jumped right into football. This weekend is our first game of the season. I am SO ready...I think.

These little Knuckleheads started school this week. I miss them already and still haven't give up on the idea of homeschooling. 

My little Punkette turned 5 and started Kindergarten on the same day. I cried. She didn't.

Coach sent me flowers and thanked me for being a great Mom. I cried again.

August has been wild and wonderful and EXHAUSTING! With the onset of school and football season, I don't see things settling down anytime soon. I guess I'm just going to hop on the crazy train, buckle up and get ready for the ride! After my nap.

It's Official!

As of this morning...

This view officially belongs to the Gridiron Gang!

We bit the bullet and bought a condo in Panama City Beach. It's something we've thought about for years, and the time was finally right. We love the Gulf Coast and go every year, so we decided it's the perfect place to have a second home. We bought a bank owned unit that has been completely stripped down, so I'm heading down tomorrow to start furnishing/decorating a completely clean slate. I only have one week...pray for my sanity! I had all the floors cleaned and tile sealed yesterday, today the painters arrived and tomorrow all the new appliances should be delivered. Hopefully by the time I get there, I can just start having fun picking out new furniture and adding some special touches.
I'm very excited, but a little nervous about getting it all done in time. I can't believe we're starting this little adventure right as football is back in full swing! This project falls firmly in the catagory of "WHAT WERE WE THINGING?"
Oh well, I guess after we wrap up another crazy football season we can go relax at our new condo on the beach!

P.S. I've got to keep this baby rented when we're not using it, so if any of you ever find yourselves in need of a little getaway...I can hook you up!
