Being Brickner : Hello, September!

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Hello, September!

Happy Tuesday & more importantly, HAPPY September, everyone!  Other than the whole going back to work thing (which, by the way, officially starts today), this time of year is one of my absolute favorites & I am so excited for all the fun that is to come.  We had a great long weekend soaking in our last moments of summer, Waverly's highlight was definitely a boat & beach trip with lots of land for her to run free & "swiiiiiim", her favorite. :)

Waverly's Swimsuit
We celebrated my birthday on Friday night with Mexican plus a last-minute concert afterwards, & then celebrated some more the next day at a friends wedding.  So much fun yet completely exhausting, we were once again reminded that kids don't care if you stayed up late the night before or if you had a few cocktails.  I'm pretty sure we will be recovering from two nights out in a row for a couple weeks. ;)


My mind is officially on all things fall now, Waverly & I had a mall date over the weekend & picked up so much fun stuff for the change in seasons.  We took advantage of the labor day sales at both Gap & Old Navy, I got Waverly these halloween pajamas & as I was standing in line, couldn't resist this jacket for me.  We picked up a couple bath & body works fall candles, the three-wick candles are my favorite & this flavor screams fall!  Also, halloween costume brainstorming has begun!  I know I only have a couple years left before she starts picking on her own, so I am totally taking advantage while I can. :)

Lastly, Kathleen from Her Joyful Studio sent Waverly the sweetest headband & I can't wait for her to wear it all fall.  I love how unique it is, the colors are perfect to transition from season to season!


I hope you all had the best, most relaxing three-day weekend!  
XOXO

  6. Waverly's chubby swimsuit thighs just kill me! We are excited for September too! I have a fun "welcome fall" day planned, even though it's supposed to be 90 degrees today!

  8. Looks like a great weekend! Love all your outfits! Love that jacket you got too! We went to the mall over the weekend but with me still recovering it was not so much fun for myself which was a complete bummer because I really wanted to get some new things for myself and the babies... And don't worry, I have been thinking about Halloween costumes for a couple of months now! hahaha! Crew will of course be the classic pumpkin for his first Halloween... because I mean, weren't we all! ;) Hope your first day back is a blast!

  13. What a PERFECT weekend! You totally deserved it, Ash!!
    I'm trying to find a pair of footie Halloween pjs for Mia and I'm not having very much luck! It seems like they don't offer those past 12 months :( It just gets so cold at night during fall/winter, and we sleep with the house cold, that I feel like the footie pjs are a must! Hope I can find some in her size!
