Are you ready to go back to school? #momsguide

Didn’t school just get out like yesterday??
This summer had flown by…I can’t believe it is already
time to start thinking about going back to school! 
Have you started your back to school shopping yet?

My kiddos have been asking me to go already!
They always get so excited about going back to school.
They love buying their school supplies & new clothes.
I usually do too but this year I’m stalling just a little bit.

See this little guy on his first day of kindergarten!  So sweet!

{wow me} wednesday #58

Welcome to  {wow me} wednesday!



So glad YOU are here!

OK…ladies I have a confession to make I’m tired!  We have been having so much fun this summer all.day.long.  Which means I’ve been blogging, catching up on emails,
facebook & on & on almost entirely at night after the kiddos are in bed!  Annnd they are going to bed waaaay later than normal, too so that means I don’t even get started on my blog stuff until after 10!!  Yawn!!  Last week I pulled two 3 am nights & a 1 am night.  Crazy I know!  So I’m going to attempt to simplify my blogging just a little bit over the next few weeks…so I can catch up on my sleep!  So for now I’ll be sharing all the features in my Thursday post…so make sure you check back then to see if you made me say WOW!!!!
I really do appreciate each & every one of you!
Thank you so much for all your support & for coming to my party each week.
Annnd if you have any advice on how to juggle blogging,
kiddos & SLEEP {oh & house cleaning, too} please let me know!  I could use it!
Winking smile

I do have TWO fun giveaways going on right now
that your KIDDOS would LOVE for you to win!

Smarties Prize Pack
and
The Princess Ponies of Pony Royale

So be sure to check those out!

SO are you ready to PaRty?

Yummy Summer Fun with White Castle

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of White Castle. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I was growing up one of my favorite summer memories was
going on road trips to see my uncle who lived in Ohio.  
He was my super fun uncle...the one that would play paper football with us
& let us play his Atari! ha! Remember those?  
Buuut another reason I loved going to Ohio was that it meant
a stop at White Castle for their cute little burgers!
