The Great Backpack Search of 2012

Hayes will be going to school when I go back to work at the end of October.  I figured it's never too early to start thinking about backpacks!  It's such a big decision...his first backpack! : )

So, Wayman Family Nesters, what's your favorite?

Airport Homecoming Pictures

I know this post is a bit delayed, but I figured better late than never!  I wanted to be sure to document our airport homecoming.

All of these pictures were taken by the fabulous Candice Stevens of Candice Lynn Photography.  Thank you Candice for capturing our special day!

My family waiting on our arrival...

Sweet friends!

Love your sign Porter!

Here we come!

And the tears start flowing...

Hayes meets my family...

Meeting his cousins and aunt...

Hayes with Daddy and his great-grandmother.

Hayes wearing the adorable gingham outfit that my sweet Mom made him!

Love my sweet boy!


Hayes with the hubby's family.

Hayes with my family.

Two of my precious former students came out to welcome Hayes home!

And they made the cutest signs!

Best friends since 1st grade with our baby boys!  They have no choice but to be best friends!  And we're so proud of Porter because he can already say "Hayes!"

Hayes meeting our sweet friends from 1Seed.  They are the awesome ones who made our fundraising lunch possible.  Thank you for helping us bring our precious son home!

Family of 3!

Time to go home!

I can't believe that we've been home 9 weeks today!  Thank you so much for all of your love and support since we've been home.  We love our little guy so much and are so thankful he's home with us!

Serena and Lily Sale!

Right now Serena and Lily is having a summer sale up to 70% off.  I love S and L, but most of the time, it's definitely out of my budget.  Here are a few items that WOULD have my attention (if I wasn't on a strict spending freeze since I'm on maternity leave!).

(Disclaimer: I am in NO WAY paid by Serena and Lily to endorse their items. I'm just fond of their pretty things and can't afford them unless they're on sale!)

Gumdrop Pendant $29.99
I've had my eye on these adorable pendants for a while now.  How adorable would one look hanging in a nursery or playroom?

Woven Paper Bowls $28-$38
We bought a bowl very similar to these on our last trip to Ethiopia.  I'd love a couple more to hang in a grouping together on a wall.

Jali Frame Collection (set of 3) $29.99
Loving this beautiful collection of frames.  They would look beautiful on a bookcase or dresser.

So, since I'm on a spending freeze, will someone please buy some of these beauts and let me live vicariously through you?!   

Happy Tuesday Wayman Family Nesters!

Friday Finds: Back to School

Today I'll be thinking of my sweet friends as they welcome their students back to school.  Today will be the first time in about 22 years that I haven't had a first day of school.  I will be home with my little man until October 22.  So while I'm missing my friends, I'm definitely enjoying the time spent at home.  I know if will go by all too quickly!

So in honor of my teacher friends, I've scoured the internet for some of my favorite school supplies.

What about you?  Do you love school supplies as much as I do?!  Happy Friday y'all!
