happy Monday, vol. 13

3 things that are making me happy lately ...
1. Making pancakes with my 4 kinder and first-grade classes on Friday, which was the last day of the program. I wasn't sure whether it would be stressful or fun, but seeing them so excited made it enjoyable. It also helped that I had an extra adult in the room, and that my friend was kind enough to let me borrow her electric griddle.
2. Fourth of July is this week! The Mr. and I have a tradition of going to see the fireworks.

3. Sweet little gifts from summer school students. I got cookies, the amazingly delicious Chinese food I mentioned here, a sweet little thank you card, this gorgeous cowry shell bracelet, and some lovely flowers for my hair.
And an extra one for good luck ...
4. One of my photos (from this outfit post) made it onto Purse and Clutch's Facebook page! :)
Happy Monday!


  1. Great feature on the FB page :) and love all the gifts you received :) You have sweet kids!

  2. These things are all so sweet! Must be a lot of fun being around kids all the time.
    I'm having a your choose cashmere giveaway on my blog, would love for you to pass by and enter I think you'll love it.


  3. Thanks, Kat! It was kind of fun to see that photo up on FB. :) And I think the bracelet will be included in some outfit posts soon. :)

  4. Thanks for dropping by, V! :) You're right, kids can be so much fun to work with. :) Will definitely check out your giveaway.

  5. Hi, Carrie, thanks for following my blog! Whenever I find a new one, I have to read all of the past posts, so I will be catching myself up on yours this week. : ) Have a great Fourth--enjoy the fireworks!

  6. I am catching up. I don't want to go back to comment on older entries, so here it is:
    Your maxi dress (jun 13) is to die for. Those colors do something with your skin tone and hair color to make you shine. It looks superb on you. It would hang like a potato sack on me, no worries, I won't snatch it from your closet.

    June 22. purple puffy is very-very nice, too. Jun 26. that one is sweet. You seem to find the perfect proportions and colors lately. Are you in love or something? I mean, I am just asking. Are you?

  7. Maria - it's the pancakes. Seriously. ;)
    Thanks for the catch-up comments! :)
