Happy Monday, y’all. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and it wasn’t sweltering hot, like it was here. Ugh, August is my least favorite month of the year. Seriously, it is so hot I really can’t take it. So I really like to wear things that don’t make it worse, like this dress. Wearing a denim dress in the summer can be tricky though, because a lot of them can be super hot. This one is really lightweight, so you won’t overheat and it has buttons, which I love! Best of all, it is under $30, yes for real! It’s been on total repeat for me all summer long! No joke, I have been known to wear it two days in a row!

Today my 2 1/2 year old starts his second year of pre-school, I can’t believe it! Last year, he cried everyday for 2 weeks. So, I pray that we don’t have that happen again. It is super painful to walk away from your kid knowing that he just wants you. So keep your fingers crossed for me. I may be in tears all morning myself! On a good note, my new little one naps in the morning at 10:00 so I’m not going to lie, I am really looking forward to having some time to actually get stuff done! My mornings usually start at 5:45 so I can blog and shower, then the kids get up at 7:00. It’s going to be a blessing having a few hours to do things! Sorry for all the mommy talk, it’s kind of all I’ve been able to do lately.
