ready or not

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 reusablebags.com:
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.
 Seriously.

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!
