Walgreens | Get A Shot. Give A Shot®

As a parent taking Amber to the doctor for immunizations was never something I looked forward to.  She was full of anxiety and her drama queen persona would melt down into something worthy of the Oscars.  Promising her a special treat and a fun bandage would calm her down just long enough for the nurse to give her the shot.  Afterward Amber would proclaim “That didn’t hurt so much!”  Yet she would still hold me to my promise of the treat 😉

I think she was fully convinced that when she finished high school all that was behind her.  She was not amused in the least to find on her university admissions forms that she needed a meningitis shot.

DSW Shoe Store Back to Class In-Store Event – DFW Saturday 8/9

In just 15 days I’m going to be dropping our daughter off at college.  I am SO NOT ready for this.  Emotionally and with all the stuff we need to get yet.  Oh I mean we already purchased the storage unit, linens, computer, etc., but she still needs her books, clothes and SHOES!

We’ll be heading out to do that this weekend since here in Texas, August 8-10 is Tax Free Weekend.  If you happen to be in the North Texas area, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse at the Golden Triangle Mall in Denton is having a Back to Class in-store event on Saturday, August 9, 2014.

Staples Better Binder and Quilted Arc Notebook

Right now in our house it’s all about university.  Amber’s completed the scholarship hoops, has applied for housing, and is getting ready for orientation all amongst the actual graduation preparations in the works.  Phew, I get tired just thinking about it.

In the back of my head I’m also thinking about all the things she’ll need for her dorm room and studying (something I like to actually think she’ll be doing when she’s there).

Getting Back to Routine with POLLY-O/KRAFT String Cheese – Giveaway

I can hardly believe how fast this summer flew by, between packing and moving and unpacking…well yeah, I blinked and it’s the end of August!  The older I’m getting the faster time seems to go.

Do You Know About This ID Tag That Makes Travel Easier?

One of the things about moving is that you have to toss all the things that you had that were personalized with your address.  I threw away address labels, address stamps and luggage tags.  Anything that was pre-printed I didn’t have any use for anymore.  I’m hoping that it won’t be long and I’ll be visiting the airport here to go on another trip, and of course that means needing to tag my luggage with something that shows it’s mine.

SwaggerTag is a practical way to do that.  And they’re fun to personalize yourself!
