Back to School

Oh my freakin goodness.
I can't believe Swede is old enough to be in 3rd grade.

Ingrid and Swede headed back to school yesterday.
The girls of course are all excited about their new clothes...
But, I'm not too excited about the fight to wake them up and make them do their homework.

Sofia who is stuck here at home with mom until preschool starts next month
came up to me literally 5 times before noon and asked if it was time to pick up the girls from school...
"time to get mah sistahs at da school?"
 These little cuties will be missed!

Arm Partay!

Some of us bloggers recently participated in a bracelet swap this summer. It was a fun way to get to know some bloggy friends, and create something fun for somebody. I was linked up to swap bracelets with Chelsea from the blog Blooming Branch. I had so much fun creating some cute bracelets for her but first, let me show you what she made for me!
Chelsea posted this pic on twitter of the progress. I love how she used these cute gold beads! via
Chelsea really knows how to party! Look at all the fun stuff she added to my package!  The kids were crazy about all the confetti and the pinwheels :)
i love the braided pink bracelet.  it wraps around 3 times so it looks like i'm wearing 3

dress: old navy cardigan: forever 21 shoes: TJ maxx
Let me show you what I sent to Chelsea real quick because I really loved making it!

neon, pink, grey and gold DIY bracelets.  I figured out how to make the chevron one HERE
It turned out that the bracelets I sent Chelsea and the ones she sent me were all coordinating colors, which was totally not done on purpose....great minds think alike ;)
If you'd like to see the rest of the bracelets that were linked up check them out here!

Aww, Tetons you're so purty

This is the post where you get to see me look like a crazy woman because sharing a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom condo with 17 people can get a teensy bit hectic & I possible may have only showered 3 times in the last week.  at least, that'll be my excuse.

Truth is, when the Tetons are right outside your door, doing your hair all fancy shmancy and putting on makeup is the last thing on your mind.  Unless you're a teenager girl (which we had 3 of with us) then all that stuff is actually the 2nd thing on your mind second only to #1 boys.
This morning was my first morning back at the gym  in over a week & i felt like i was going to die.  I guess that's what you get for eating twinkies and pringles for a week straight.

I did get a little exercise on our trip.  Jeremy took Swede and I on a morning hike overlooking the Tetons.  & we did paddle a canoe for 2 days straight.  But that came to a screeching halt when Jeremy tweaked is back (bad!) while putting the canoe back on top of the car.  So, we had 2 full days of running around, swimming in String Lake and having fun, and then 4 days of taking it easy, driving around a lot looking for animals, watching Jim Gaffigan on Netflix & a quick trip up to yellowstone to look at a few hot pots.  ya know, those pretty, stinky pots of boiling water...can't get enough of them ;)

The paddle boards we rented were a highlight of our week.  Not necessarily because they were super fun, but because of the uncoordinated-ness of us Winborgs.  It's hilarious watching a 70 year old man fall off a paddle board repeatedly...and a 40 year old woman, and another 40-something year old woman...and myself.  hilarious. every. time.
i have video, too. dare i post it??

I hope your week was fabulous, too!
and fyi, the winner of the $50 Shabby Apple gift card giveaway is Beth @ Through the Eyes of the Mrs.,
congrats, i'm jealous!
