My husband’s best friend and his family are paying us a visit for a few days. Yesterday we thought it a good idea to take the children to Stone Mountain Park. I had only been to Stone Mountain a few times and it was for the laser show that plays nightly during the summer. Yesterday we went and took in the entire experience.

I knew there would be a lot of walking so I opted to wear tennis shoes instead of flip flops and I’m glad I did. Up until a few weeks ago I didn’t own a pair of tennis shoes other than my running shoes and they are far from cute. JD Sports was so kind to send me a pair of Air Max to review and I love them.

My mind is full of scribble scrabble right now trying to get everything in order before school starts. I’ve succeeded at tearing up pretty much every room in this house with the intention of putting them back together before school starts. I’m not the neatest person but I have this weird thing where when things like school starts I have to have everything in order, it somehow makes the transition better. I’ve lost a lot of sleep and there is still a huge box and a few trash bags waiting to be thrown away. Ask me why they haven’t been moved.

Addison’s room is finished being painted. Mr. painted the trim and then got swamped with work so even though I said I wouldn’t be the one to paint it…I ended up painting it. Thee worse. The wall was a dark brown and I took it a light beige, that is almost white. It took two coats of the best  paint and primer money can buy. I can’t imagine how long it would’ve taken had I went with something not as thick.

Today we purchased her a new bed, mattress and dresser. I’ll do an update in a few days once I get everything made up. Her room has been a hodge podge since we moved in nearly a year ago. It’s time she got a room fit for a Princess.  I sure hope she likes it enough to sleep in there. Not sure how much longer I can go with her bullying me in my sleep. She insists on sleeping on my side, while he gets to sleep in peace and I STAY dangling off the edge.

In the past few days I’ve been to Target and Walmart at least twice a piece, put all of the school supplies in the basket and left without buying them. Why you ask, I feel like I’ll get a better deal if I wait until next week. I mean Crayola crayons are still $.50 when they get down to $.25 I’ll get school supplies, well really I’ll wait until Sunday when all of the new sales come out and compare pricing and then do my shopping.

Thank you to everyone that filled out the survey. For the most part the answers came back as I expected. Then there were the 3 that had something to say about sponsored content. 3! Out of nearly a hundred responses I got three but it’s only human to pay attention to the negative. So I feel the need to semi address the issue of sponsored content.

I keep it real. There will be sponsored content on this blog. As long as my children need things and I have the ability to do it, I will. With that being said will it be for random things I never use or don’t  think might be useful to those who frequent this space. NO. If I brought every pitch to this blog that was sent my way there would be nothing but sponsored content. I don’t even find it hard to turn down the money because I am genuine in this space and I value that more than anything.

I appreciate every one who comes here and supports but if I genuinely choose to use this space to generate income I feel no kind of way about it. I asked because I want to try to make sure that I am mixing it in, can’t please everybody. While sponsored content won’t always be present here, the red X will.

Moving along.

I am so ready for fall. I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and they had the harvest stuff out and I had visions of blowing leaves, crisp nights and pumpkins. Even started thinking about my fall porch. I love fall, it’s my favorite time of the year.
