School starts tomorrow for my Princess! REALLY? ALREADY? UGH!!!
Back to school is always bitter-sweet for me. I miss my girlie being home all the time! AND This summer has gone by so fast!
Today, I wanted to share with you some fun ideas I have found and ones that I have used in the past to make lunch more fun. We have always done home lunch because it is so much easier
So we are working on a compromise, on the days she LOVES what they are having she can eat school lunch. Which will probably be 2-3 days out of the week. Which isn't too bad. She can kind-of be a picky eater. She definitely knows what she likes!
Can you believe she has never liked PB& J's!
No matter what Jam/Jelly I use...doesn't matter!
And If I use even tried to use honey...I get the "OOh.... Ick Face"
Seriously, is this kiddo really mine?
Here's some of the fun ideas we came up with last year to change it up a bit.
Use the mini ones to make homemade lunchables.
I would cut the meat and cheese out with them. Add some crackers, a Capri Sun and a mini candy bar and WALAH! Super easy!
"Happy Meal" some of the things I bought were:
Printable Jokes from Family Fun
I found these cute printables!
These are the ones I have used in the past!
Lunch Box Notes from Kid Printables
I think this year I will write out fortunes for her, like: "I see a trip to the dollar store awaits you after school today!" Now I just need to make or find something that is reuseable. Maybe a plastic Easter egg recovered in fun fabric...we'll see....d
I hope these ideas are helpful! Have a great day!

Are you all getting ready for school? Getting some shopping done? The school supplies? All that good stuff. Well, I have to show you all what we have been working on!
Are these cute or what! I HAVE to share how easy and inexpensive these are to make!
Here's what you'll need:
-Mod Podge/foam brush
-Something to bend the wire
Ok, so I cut the the fronts of the boxes only for a few of them.
(Sorry I don't have the pictures)
They ended up being too small for the front cover, so if you cut them in advance make sure you
cut the fronts AND the sides of the box!
Cut the leftover side of the box off so it is all even. You can use a hole punch and punch hole where you see the holes "were" if you want.
(Sorry about the blurry pic...it kinda makes your eyes go crossed, huh!?)
I used a small hole paper punch, and just punched where there were already holes.
Then I put it all back together the same way I took it apart. As you can see, the holes were not perfect, but when it is all put together, you can't even tell!
See...can't even tell... Now I just gotta show you the rest, 'cause I HEART them they turned out so cute!
What do you guys think?
Do you want to know how much they cost?
Notebooks 1.00 but you can get them for like .15 right now!
Mod podge...left over from other projects..
So these cost me ahem a whole whopping $1.00!
And the smile on Pretty Princess' face....
Worth a million!
Have a great day !

Some of the things you'll find here this month will be:
To kick it off ...here's a little something I did!
A Back to School Plaque
I would love to take credit for this idea, BUT....I first got this idea from Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up! I've said it before, Her blog is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. She has some great stuff over there! I make my own now that I know how to, but she actually does one for every month and she has a free printable.
