Random thoughts on a weekend-before-school Saturday morning:

1. When did school supplies get so cute?

2. Why aren’t there any good garage sales today?

3. I hope messy buns never go out of style or I’ll have to get a new look.

4. This was a fun week on the blog.  We showed the before and after of the dining room and talked about the upcoming release of my newest book and went all hot mess for a minute.

5. Is anyone else going to the Silobration down in Waco?  Have you seen the information about it?

Let me know if you are going because I’ll be there.

And now?
