Time with Jayla & Some of my FAVS...by way of Gretchen...by way of Susie Q.

Yesterday, Jayla and I were out running errands. Being that Summer break is almost over and school starts back next Monday, I asked her what was her most favorite thing she did over the summer.

Here's her response..."WELL...one of my most favoritetess things was going to the Romantical Gardens. And I loved going to the bookstore. Oh, and just spending time with you!"

Isn't she just the sweetest thing? I got a real kick out of the "Romantical" Gardens answer. And when I told her how sweet it was for her to say "Spending time with you", she said, "Oh, shucks...it's nothing! You know I like that mother/daughter bonding thing!" LOL

She's a mess!

I just know this week is gonna fly by. And come next Monday morning, we'll be back into our weekly routine. We've been backing down the bedtime for a few weeks now. So, we'll see how well she does with HAVING to get up early.

We have Sneak-a-peek on Thursday, where we get to find out which teacher she'll have and where her new class will be. So hopefully, she'll adjust as well as she did last year. I'll keep ya'll posted on how things go that first week of being back in school.

Now, how about YOU? Are you playing too? And a bonus topic for you:

What's your minimum preparation for going out in public? Are you a quick mascara and lipgloss girl (in the car, no less?), a no-fuss-no-muss-no makeup nor hair production gal, or are you more of a diva, complete with flawless makeup, coiffure, and matching (stain-free) outfit? I just throw on some clothes, something that matches is optional :-). Brush some of the teeth, comb some of the hair and I'm out! :-) I can't remember the last time I wore make-up. It's enough for me to put on chap stick. I wear mascara every blue moon. I'm very low maintenance. Hey, maybe I should be nominated for that TV show, "What Not to Wear". (actually, I think that would be kinda cool and just the thing I need)

Alright, my fine feathered friends, that's all I've got for today. OH...WAIT...as you are aware, I have my weekly girls night out on Wednesdays. So tomorrow, we're having a special GNO. We're having 80's night and we're all gonna dress up in 80's outfits. Depending on how well the pictures come out, I MAY have to share them with you :-). I'm so sure....
