Link Love and a Break



I've decided to take a short break to enjoy the last week of summer vacation.  I can't believe I'm about to write this, but we had a great summer.  I was a bit worried with the lack of activities that were planned for the boys, but, instead, we.did. a. lot.!  I think the best part of the break was spending time with my boys and their friends.  They are not "too cool" yet to still want to laugh with the parents.  So fun to listen to their conversations.  I did a ton of driving, and we did have our share of disagreements, but it turned out to be a summer to remember.

That being said, I still want to enjoy my time with all three of my guys.  I want to knit a sweater for my husband and read a few more books.  My movie queue dates back to 2007, so I would like to catch up by a year or so.
To those of you who are back to school, enjoy your quiet time.  To those of you who still have the gremlins at home, good luck.  The last week is always the hardest!

Enjoy the links and I will see you soon!

These are on my to-do list for the Fall.  Simple and easy and oh so nice for a hostess gift.

I apologize if I've posted this before...but it's chocolate, so it's worth repeating.

This is hysterical! Andy I are are turning 50 soon.  I so want to do this

More lantern love.

This guy is incredible.  His new t-shirt is available.  He takes certain wedding photos and creates cool t-shirts out of them.  I want every single one!

Enjoy the last week, Jane! The last-week anxiety is ramping up here, too. (On my part. I think my KIDS are dying to get away from me...) I just KNOW they don't have enough shoes. And pants. And pencils! And I am NOT ready to start driving them to soccer and hockey and, well, SCHOOL. That part's gonna stink.
