Nesting on this last Sunday morning of August.

I have been solo with the kids since Thursday night and Rick finally comes home today! Hallelujah! We’ve missed him.

School starts back up in less than 2 weeks. I’m ready to get back into a routine and settle into the coziness that comes with autumn.

I used to love going back to school shopping with my mom when I was younger. It looks just a little different with boys. Obviously we had to go to the new Dick’s Warehouse.

Speaking of back to school, this week I shared this back to school snack mix. I like to leave it out in a little jar so the kids can nibble and help themselves when they come home.

I went to Target earlier this week and the Dollar Spot was rocking with so many cute things for fall. I picked up this little apple basket and decided to make a little teacher gift for when we go meet the teacher and drop off school supplies the day before. Linking it here.

I’m really loving this nail polish color for fall.

Do you get real mums or faux? I’ve been decorating my front porch with these for the past 3 years. What do you think?

    I bet you are glad to have Rick home. My youngest starts college next Monday and I can’t wait to get back into a routine. I love the look of that snack mix. Yum, yum.
    Your porch looks so pretty.
