First up, of course, my back to school jamicure! You know I was rocking a new nail wrap for day 1! I chose city alphabet, the August Sister Style exclusive. Each month the sisters choose one wrap to offer only for the month and I love this one!
If you're interested, here is this month's style - called Check it out! So fun! Shop for it my Jamberry Page here!

Back to school!
School started Sep. 2. Here is what my room looked like on August 21 when I first went in (yeah, sure, we have the summer off! Then why do I start setting up my room 2 weeks before school starts, right?!)
And I opened a cabinet to find a problem which I immediately went to work on!
YIKES! Apparently keeping this cabinet neat was a low priority!
Then I looked at this area under the clock. Has been bugging me for years. The coat hooks used to be there, until we convinced admin to let us put coat hooks and backpacks in the hall where they belong. There was only room for about 10-12 hooks across as I recall so there were hooks below hooks and kids coats and backpacks stacked on top of each other... and they wondered why we had a lice problem!
I had spent some time organizing this area which now had shelves but I have wanted curtains for a few years.
After a failed attempt at curtains from the Christmas Tree Shop (if the curtains are sheer, the package really should say sheer, I found these on Amazon here. YAY! Much better. Excuse the stuff on the table - some extra containers I hadnt yet put away.
And almost ready!
Decided to be a crayon nerd this year! Keep them organized people!
Here is my little paper supply area and spot for papers to pass out, Friday folders, etc. The board above is inspired by something I saw on Schoolgirl Style last year.
Did some shopping before school started. I have a big, scary, and kind of depressing birthday next week so I determined that I deserved a special gift, so I went shopping at the outlets and found this beautiful Coach purse. The little bag is for putting all the junk in that usually falls to the bottom of the purse like pens, makeup, hand sanitizer etc. Worth it! It replaced a lovely plastic bag I used to shove them in. (PS Thank you TPT and Jamberry!)
I also saw some awesome bargains for clothes and got a skirt, shirt, and a beach/pool cover up from Vineyard Vines and this $98 J. Crew dress for about $50 -hello parent currciulum night!
My BTS shopping also included ordering Walking Dead season 4 YAY and a new desk fairy which came in the same package which was really weird. And now I can't find the desk fairy anywhere. Do you think the zombies got her?!!!?!
While at Home Goods I saw this porcelain-type dog. What does that remind you of??? Anyone ? Joey's porcelain dog on Friends! Hahah! I had to take a photo and send it to my friend Jenney who is also a big fan of Joey Tribbiani!
Of course Bailey gets a shout out in 4 for Friday. Here he is enjoying the last day of summer, Labor Day! Like a cat in the sun!
And I am so excited by Jamberry's new fall line of nail wraps. Looko at the awesome Halloween and fall themed wraps!! WOW! Shop for them at my Jamberry Page here.
Also, disclaimer I did not take the photos or make them and do not claim ownership. I think it was my team leader, Charity who did, but I but a watermark on it to protect them from getting lifted from my blog and folks claiming Charity's work as their own. The wraps are SO fun though and we also have tons of fall themed, Thanksgiving, and Christmas wraps!
