wiww-frugal fashionista

When the kids have a day off from school, one of my best friends and I gather our boys and head to Sea World. We both have 3 boys relatively close in age so we just get each other. I truly love that about her.

It was a perfect fall day here in Southern California; not too warm and not too hot. It was just right. Although I dream of moving elsewhere often (probably too often), days like these make me count living here as a blessing.

On a side note, I finished wrapping all of our presents last night. I'm am so very early by my standards. How about you? Are you an early shopper and wrapper or do you wait until the last minute? I have to say that spreading out the shopping and wrapping early has really helped me to feel like there is not always one more thing to do (and buy!).

Happy Wednesday to you!

Much love,
Katie

You look great Katie. I'm lovin' that top from Old Navy. And I"m like you, this year I started wrapping as I go which so far is only 2 gifts and it's made it much easier.;)
