Being Brickner : Five on Friday

Five on Friday

TGIF!  So very excited to be linking up with some lovely ladies again!  Although honestly, most of my excitement lies in the fact that it's officially FRIDAY!  That brings me to my #1 ...
 
ONE - I made it through the first week of the school year!  A total accomplishment!  The first week could always be classified as complete crazytown, but this year has definitely been like no other.  Leaving a one-year old Waverly Maye proves been a little harder than before, to say the least.  A few tears have been shed, both from Waverly & from me.  But the good news is that we have made it & our time in the afternoons has been that much more special.

 
And actually, my students have been pretty great & have made it a little bit easier to leave my girl.  That, and the fact that we get to talk fashion & style all day long.  Sitting on www.instyle.com is my job.  I do it for the kids. :)

TWO - It's an endless summer for us in VB.  It's still hot as hell out, so we are taking advantage at the beach.  Waverly Maye is a total beach baby.  She LOVES IT ... every part of it, sand & waves included.  My crazy child gives me a mild heart attack everytime she takes a bite out of the sand or dunks her head in the water.  I totally blame my husband for all of it, she totally gets it from him.  They are two peas in a pod the sand.


THREE - Just because we are beach people doesn't mean that we aren't more than ready for the fall.  The official start of September just makes me all warm & cozy inside.  On the to-do list to get fall ready .... (1) buy as many ankle booties as my bank account will allow, (2) decorate my new mantle with a festive garland, (3) plan Waverly's Halloween costume (AAAH!), & (4) dress Waverly in baby oxfords & knee high socks.  Everyday. 
 
 
FOUR - It must be the teacher in me, Waverly & I have been having dates at the library lately.  I am trying my hardest to get her interested in books.  We have an entire four shelves packed with them & I read her at least one a night, but this active little lady definitely doesn't like to sit still.  For anything.  So little by little, we are getting there and the kids section at our local library has definitely helped.  Especially the fact that it is usually pretty empty and she can run through as she pleases.
I'm trying :)


FIVE - My sister-in-law got me this necklace for my 30th, and OMG - I have worn it everyday since and may just wear it everyday for the rest of my life.  I love it, it matches everything, and best of all, it has Waverly's name right across it.  Even when I am away from my little, she is right with me. Bestill my 30 year-old heart. :)


Enjoy your weekend, friends!
XOXO

  4. We love our library, too! Especially in the summer, with the toys and story times and summer reading programs. I totally had my son participate even at 11 months old! The necklace is a great keepsake! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. Love that necklace! It's awesome.

    We're beach people, too. It's still 100ish degrees here in the afternoons and perfect swimming weather. I love it but I am jealous of people having their chilly fall nights!

  7. How cute are you in your denim romper? That's one thing I can't pull off. At all. I've got a super long torso and anything in the romper or peplum department usually is a big no no for me! Waverly looks cute as usual! She's getting so big! I love your necklace too! I have a sterling and gold one from Hot Mama Designs that's similar and the one necklace I wear ALL the time. It goes with everything and looks great layered with other necklaces...plus I can rock my girl's name to boot! Happy weekends! Xoxo
