Are you loving that Tickled Pink has a FAB co-hostess,
Meegan from What Meegan Makes!
You MUST hop over there to see Meegan's features too!

I am KNEE DEEP (maybe even over my head) in my garage.
I swear I work on this disaster I have created constantly...
but last weekend, my sweet friend volunteered to come up and help!
Now, someone who willingly ventures into my garage and my mess...
that is a true friend.

Welcome to the NEW Tickled Pink x2!

Does it seem weird to you that we decided to spend an afternoon with a coconut?
I kind of thought so too (we have done weirder),
but I love introducing my kids to new foods, foods in their natural forms,
and we love to experiment...so this was perfect fun.

Remember last week, I announced that Tickled Pink 
has a co-hostess, Meegan from What Meegan Makes!

Well, it is week number 2!
I have features (amazing!)
and you have to ho[ over to Meegan's to see her features! 
As for my little ole place, school is in full swing here!
We had a party to celebrate back to school and it was a blast, but
unfortunately we are dealing with some bullying issues (not a blast).

School is in full swing for us here in Central California!
I will never get used to starting school in early August!
But to ease the pain of that early start time,
I had a little shopping spree at OshKosh B'gosh and 

featuring OshKosh B'gosh and "Cookies and Milk-Shakes!"

There are changes happening all around me
and the blog is no exception!
(I am still working on some of those)
But this week...there is one BIG, FUN change to this little ole linky party.
See this little button here...

It's changing to this new fancy button here...

and Tickled Pink gets the sweetest co-hostess EVER!
Meegan from What Meegan Makes and myself
are joining forces to spread the pink and blue creative love!

Now this is a bit out of the ordinary for me.
After watching Ashton Kutchers speech at the Teen Choice Awards,
I think I might have a Mommy crush (although he is not that much younger than me) 
But in all seriousness, I really had no opinion - good or bad - of him before. However his speech is inspiring, refreshing, and every kid and adult can take something away from it. No seriously! Go watch Ashton Kutchers speech!

I was a little slow this week in the creative department...
but I did make this super cute back to school banner

I am a little banner obsessed.
If I can make a banner for an occasion...I do.
Last week I had a small Back to School party 
and made this super cute "We {heart} School" banner for decoration.
It is pretty simple and has a rustic, vintage feel.
And I kind of love it!
Painted burlap and a sweet red heart show our love of school.

Disclosure: Post and giveaway sponsored by OshKosh B’gosh,
but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
I am a denim fanatic. 
I truly believe denim goes with just about anything!
(I would wear my denim jacket with a formal gown to the Academy Awards...for real!) 
I believe great denim pieces make your wardrobe versatile and stylish year-round!!
 Well, now my daughter is becoming a denim fanatic too!
She is discovering the love of denim and having fun
mixing and matching the pieces to create new outfits.

Can I tell ya how happy I am that Jules has discovered denim and that I have rediscovered Osh Kosh B'gosh! They have an amazing selection of stylish clothing and denim essentials for Back to School! My daughter was in need of a wardrobe update - she grew so much this summer and her style is one-of-a-kind (she is a mini fashionista!).
 As we sat down to shop online for her back to school wardrobe, we started with the Osh Kosh B'gosh denim - a great base for any wardrobe!
OshKosh B’gosh is the place for the Back to School staple - Denim! 
I remember wearing OshKosh B'gosh (heck my mom probably has my favorite overalls at her house somewhere!)...but now as a mom myself I truly appreciate the durable, high quality product that OshKosh B'gosh produces. 100% cotton, reinforced seams and adjustable waists (and extended sizes ranges too), B’gosh Blue Jeans put a smile on my face! And right now OshKosh B'gosh denim is available at amazing prices with $10/$12 Doorbuster saving online or at stores!

If you are looking for girls jeans, select your look from old and new school washes...of course with adjustable waists for comfort. Your girl will look classic and cute, as well as feel comfortable in the Bootcut denim (available in plus & slim sizes) or the go-to girly style with stretch, the B’gosh Skinny jean (size 6m-5t, 4-12).

I shopped for my daughter because (sadly) my big boy is too big for OshKosh (but I wish he wasn't - it is hard to find 100% cotton tees and quality denim at reasonable prices for an adult-sized 12 year old).
But if you have a sweet (or tough) boy of your own, the boys jeans offer a selection of straight, classic & carpenter denim styles, available in sizes 6m-5t, 4-12 husky & slim.
 And of course let's not forget about the cool graphic tees and selection of jackets and tops...and school uniforms!
We ultimately selected a denim jacket that Jules can wear with EVERYTHING,
some skinny jeans in a dark wash, and a denim skort from the denim shop.
Then, we clicked over to look at OshKosh's other selections.
The original tees, priced at $7 and $8 are so cute -
it is hard to choose one (so we chose a few)!
Did you know the designs are handdrawn by OshKosh deisgners?
How cool is that? Wearable art!
Best yet, the designs are cute and cool enough for my daughter to love them, but designed with age appropriateness in mind, so that this mom loves them too! 

To round out our shopping adventure, we also purchased a TLC Tunic in Balloon Print to paired with TLC Sparkle Leggings, a cheerleader inspired Embellished Tee and a Floral Skort

I have way too much fun shopping for this sweet girl and am so happy she loves her OshKosh Back to School clothes and already has a list of the other styles and colors she wants!

When Back to School time rolls around,
we are always on the hunt for a new lunch box or bag.
Unfortunately we almost always end up needing a different one soon after the school year starts. The quality of the lunch box either does not hold up…or more often, the lunch box is too small. My kids pack a large water bottle every day, and we rarely use plastic bags in the lunch. Instead we use reusable containers…and they take up extra space.
Back to School Lunch Purse by 504 Main
(P.S. with a few adjustments on the dimensions, a change of Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape, and a flap, this easily can become a great Lunch Bag for a Boy)
With some thought and Inspiration from the
I have created a fun and stylish lunch “purse” for my daughter (everyone girl loves a new purse, right?)…that fits all of her items…looks great…and with the strength and quality of duct tape will last a long time!
