Monday Madness, Back To School, Part 1

I am in denial in regards to several things: Mini K will be starting school in 1 month and 4 days, summer will soon fade to fall, and Mini K understands the news. She was "discussing" bedtime with Mr. Grove tonight...they did not agree...her solution...let's go have a beer with President B The Rock Obama (her name and yes I have tried to correct her). Just what I need, a 3 1/2 year old who thinks beer is a problem solving agent.

I am guessing some of the other moms out there are starting to think about the school year that will soon be upon us, so today's Monday Madness is one of our favorite back to school items: The School Bus Lunch Box. I must confess I didn't ride a school bus to school, neither did Grove Gal E, but oh well. And for you godmothers, aunts or dear friends out there, this is a great back to school present. It's perfect for holding so much more than lunch...crayons, crafts, or one of my favorites:

For a girl: filled with hair elastics, a new hairbrush, and a few hair bows in the school colors
For a boy: filled with a mini flashlight, stick on tatoos, rob rocks and disposable camera

You can purchase it HERE, and this week it is on sale for $30

Now, back to my reality of getting ready for Mini K's first day of school.
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 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 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 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.

And Grove Gal E wanted me to remind all of you to become a fan of Pineapple Grove Gifts on Facebook. We will be posting the details of our holiday home if you are in Dallas or D.C. you could be in luck.

And with that, I am back to uploading new items to the PGG site.

No doubt I will be doing the mad rush back to school shopping just days before they go back.

My mom never allowed my sister or I to wear jeans to school either! Love the ruffle detail on the crewcuts puffer!
