I used to have a Louis Vuitton French Purse...I am not sure if I want to get another one.
Then there are a few tres chic Gucci continental wallets.
And since today really is Jackie's day, I couldn't help but look at Gucci's new Jackie O collection. These two are my favorites...and yes I know that each of them probably cost more than some people's mortgage payment, but aren't they lovely???
And the more edgy army green distressed leather. It almost bridges the biker-preppy label. I know what a combination.

I ordered Mini K the chocolate brown backpack with pink butterflies from Garnet Hill, and am hoping the fabulous Amy from The Monogrammed Monkey will monogram it for me.
Last year's wellies are a tad too small...it seems Mini K's feet have grown 3 sizes since spring. She finally decided she wanted pink Wellies instead of the purple ones. We ordered them from Shoes.com and they had a coupon that automatically took 15%, plus free shipping and no sales tax.
Next, I had to tackle my Crewcuts order before they sold out of everything. She doens't have to wear a uniform in preschool, but I have put a few rules in place...no jeans or play clothes. I am in love with these 2 ruffle shirts.
I really wanted to get her a puffer with a hood, but this one from Crewcuts is pretty cute and may be the winner if I don't see anything else.
And this little pretty might have to be my reward to getting Mini K off to school this year.

For Heaven's sake...Never let God get in the way of a good story. Good Christian Bitches is the lighthearted tale of Amanda Vaughn, a recently divorced mother of two. To get a fresh start, she moves back to the affluent Dallas neighborhood where she grew up. In an Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Desperate Housewives on steroids style, her old friends are already out to destroy her reputation. In the whirling midst of salacious gossip, Botox, and fraud, Amanda turns to those who love her and the faith she's always known. Will the Good Christian Bitches get the best of her, or will everyone see that these GCBs are as counterfeit as their travel jewelry?

I can tell you all of that, but a picture is worth a thousand words. This is Mini K, fearless, hands in the air, going down a water slide by herself at the age of 3. You cannot see her fabulous Lilly P swimsuit, but trust me, she was rocking her favorite lime green monkey print.
There has been a lot of mom chatter on twitter lately about teaching toddlers various things. So for those of you struggling with swimming, you might want to check out ISR. Mr. Grove and I are so thankful to Sarah and this amazing program.
