I don't need to hear another word about...

the Kardashian sisters' wedding, pregnancy, or reconciliation. EVER.

One of those days...

I consider myself a pretty upbeat know-the glass is always half full. Today is just one of those days when I feel a little down. I feel a little underappreciated, Facebook is getting on my nerves, I met a friend at Starbucks and it was just a little strained (probably my fault), I am struggling to keep the house in order and feel like I am two steps away from it turning into a crack den, the economy is incredibly scary (and no I do not think it has turned the corner), and I don't know what else.

It is really hard to be a working mom and to do a good job at home and work, be active at your child's school, maintain friendships, be a good wife, etc.

Today I am struggling. Tomorrow will be better.

Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Balenciaga Work Bag

This is the bag I am carrying right now-a Balenciaga work bag. I think a blue color is nice in the spring and early fall. I love Balenciaga bags, but they do tend to get scuffed around the edges if you are not super careful.

Oreo Truffles

Oreo truffles are amazing-delicious and easy to make.
You will need:
One package of Oreos
One block of cream cheese
Chocolate bark or chips

Pulverize oreos in your food processor. You want them very fine. Add an entire block of cream cheese. Pulverize again until it forms a dough. Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Place in fridge for 1 hour or until firm. Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. Dip balls into the chocolate and lay on wax paper to harden.
I like them dipped in white chocolate with some dark chocolate drizzled on top.

Halloween Decorations

Grandin Road has a great and affordable selection of Halloween decorations. I always enjoy looking through their catalog. I get a lot of inspiration for my decorating from looking at catalogs.

Back to School

My son is back at school-2nd grade. It seems like the days fly by once school is in session. Basketball sign-up is tonight, and Lacrosse practice starts on Monday. He loves his teacher, so I am thrilled.

Halloween glasses

I have always enjoyed Halloween, but once you have children it moves up to a whole different level. It's a fun holiday without all of the pressure. Wine Enthusiast has these etched wine glasses on their website. They are so fun. You can purchase sets of two of each design or buy a box of six that has two of each design for a slightly discounted price. Wouldn't they make a great hostess gift for a Halloween party?

Kappa Prep's Fall Swap

I had such a great time participating in Kappa Prep's Fall Swap. The rules were pretty simple: Think Fall, Send at least Four items, and Spend $30 excluding shipping. My swap partner was Marla from Kinda...Sorta...Something. She sent me a Lilly Pulitzer note pad, a luggage tag, a package of Ultra Fine Sharpies, OPI's I'm Fondue of You nail polish, and Altoids dark chocolate covered mints. I love EVERYTHING she sent me and thoroughly enjoyed participating in the swap! I am definitely in the mood for fall!!
