It seems like summer just got started...and yet here we are, 1 month before our eldest starts school! We live in the south so it does stay quite warm through Oct/Nov [sometimes there's even a "freak week" in Dec where it's 70...and then it'll snow three days later.]

So I scoured the net looking for some of the cutest, environment friendly, back to school basics I could find. You can click on the links below [it takes you to the page where you can purchase] [NO I am not being paid or anything. These are just products that I have found and am purchasing myself!]

Helping the environment in anyway we can is important. Call it your civic duty. A favor to your kids who will inherit this Earth. Substituting reusable bags for plastic is a RAD way to help. Not to mention it saves your wallet from wasteful spending! From
society's consumption rate is now estimated at well over 500,000,000,000 (that's 500 billion) plastic bags annually, or almost 1 million per minute.


a. Reusable Organic Sandwich/Snack Bag with Blue Bird [Bebeloosh Mini Shop] They are absolutely adorable with several appliqu├ęs to choose from. Machine washable!

b. Red Apple Dots Sak [WasteNot Saks] Huge fan of the adorable prints. These are all lined with Nylon. Comes in sandwich and snack sizes!

c.  Personalized Zebra Lunch Tote [Silver Thread Embroidery] They have a few different lunch box [girl and boy] options and handmade backbacks!

d. Personalized Chocolate/Orange Lunch Box [Sibling Rivalry Design] SEVERAL different lunch box color combos and designs! You'll love these!

e. Skip Hop Zoo Lunchies [Skip Hop] I LOVE THESE. They are too cute and come in: bee, owl, dog, mouse, monkey, penguin. BPA free, Phthalate free, & PVC free! they also have coordinating backpacks [here]

f. Property Of Tags [Risky Beads: Accessories with Issues] A fun way to make sure all of the new gear finds its way back to your child when it inevitably gets lost or forgotten. ^_^ Attach to jackets, lunch boxes, & book bags!

g. Personalized Back Pack in Navy/Aqua [Sibling Rivalry Design] Another one from SiblingRivalry. Boy & Girl versions.

h. Embroidered LadyBug Back Pack [All About You Design] These get personalized with your child's name. CUTE right? yeah, just agree. it's flippin' cute. There are boy designs too [one has a lion on it!]

Very nice pictures! I lived in San Diego for 14 years before moving back East again. I loved it, but I also love NY. So, your pictures made me a little homesick! PS.. .I love that you named your daughter Rory after the Gilmore Girls. That was one of my favorite shows ever and I miss it a lot!

Haha! I was just talking about that show with some friends and we were so irritated with the way it ended!

I felt the same way whenever I saw photos of San Diego from friends/family/fellow bloggers! New York!? I want to go there so bad! I haven't been since I was a kid! Thanks for the comment & compliment!
