~1st Day of School~ Vera Bradley~Halloween Swap~Happy 17th Birthday Alli~

~HAPPY 1st DAY in 1st GRADE Ms. MADDI~ ~She's a card, in front of the camera.....remind you of someone you know??? Big Sister Kristi and maybe Mom too!!! 1st day of school was great.....and Maddi was happy to see old friends from Kindergarten. She is going to a NEW BIG School this year, 1st thru 5th grade. But she doesn't see the big kids, as they are in another part of the building. WHEW!!!! Those kids are so big compared to our little 1st graders. AND....it's ALLI's 17th BIRTHDAY TODAY....she is sick....darn it, but her party is this Friday, over night....with a bunch of giggly 11th grade girls. And next week is Kristi's going away to boot camp party. NEVER A DULL MOMENT HERE...it's like I am catching up for everything I couldn't do last year with the cancer.

THIS HUGE COLLECTION of RETIRED VERA BRADLEY Totes, Purses and Sting Wallets are on our ebay auctions for just $9.99/No Reserve. Click here to have a look!!!!

I am still working on the swap, Please note, SIGN UP IS CLOSED, I reached the limit, PLUS SOME, and have emailed or left comments to everyone who is in. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE. AND I am still trying to get the shop ready for Tuesday.....if you saw it now....you would say, THERE IS NO WAY she will be ready by then....LOL...I sold the big table and it's gone...so I have a BIG space to fill. FUN FUN FUN!!! Off to mark more pretties, wish you were all here to celebrate with me on Tuesday. I won't be posting again until after the GRAND OPENING.....and will have pictures.

Hugs and Love, Amy

What a little doll your first grader is! How fast they grow! My granddaughter is in 7th this year (sniff sniff).

Don't over-do too much, with school, the sleepover, & the shop! Wish I could be there to help you strow some of your special vintage goodies around!

Big TX Hugs,

Maddi is so darn cute. She reminds me of her Mommy!! I guess you'll be a busy girl with all the parties going on. Have a great time.

Hi Amy! We started school here this week too. I have a kindergartener and a 3rd grader for homeschool, a 5th grader at the local Christian school and my senior who only has 2 classes to graduate! I feel like I'm stretched as thin as I can be these days.

How are you handling things with your daughter leaving for bootcamp? Praying with you... Polly

Hi Amy, I have an award for you on my blog. Have you checked out my new home yet? It is awesome!! If I do say so myself.
