Well it’s official, the kids returned to school this week and we’re back to our normal routine. I love that annual trip to shop for school supplies, one of my favorite rituals, yours too? This weekend Matt and our little boy took a quick trip to Pennsylvania to see the finals of the Little League World Series with Matt’s brother and his son and from the texts I’ve been getting they’re having a great time. Of course we’re rooting for Team West, go Las Vegas! Here at our casa it’s a girl’s only weekend, we’ve got sleepovers and shopping and pedicures on the agenda, and other girl related fun.

It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ weekend again, and Amanda and I rounded up our favorites from the past few weeks, enjoy these inspiring projects and ideas!
