Back to School Dinner Idea {2016: Charity}.

As I've been planning and prepping for our annual Coombs Familiy Back to School dinner on Sunday night....I've been reflecting a lot on the themes that Joe and I have chosen in years past.  

I loved 2016 and our CHERRY-ty theme.

This was the year that our family volunteered once a week with the homeless community in our area and it changed our lives forever.

All of our CHERRY themed details HERE.

Welcome Tags: Tickled Pink + Sunshine Printables.

I've created some NEW TAGS for my Etsy shop and I'm super excited to share them with you!!!

Have you ever visited another ward and just felt super uncomfortable because no one talked to you? 

I have.

These tags are to help with that awkwardness!!!

Basically the idea is to fill up a basket with ALL THINGS PINK!  

Attach my TICKLED PINK tags to each item and then when someone NEW moves into your ward OR comes to visit...let them introduce themselves and then pick an item to take home!

Because who doesn't love getting spoiled with a treat? 
Especially at church!
All of the above items I found were from the $ store so you really don't need to spend much money at all.

I've also created some SUNSHINE tags with the same idea...

Each of these sets comes with Relief Society AND Young Womens tags included.

This Weekend:

* Friday morning we headed to the movie theater to see...

Super cute.
We all loved it.
Adam Sandler is hilare.

* School shopping afterwards.

Can you believe our schools start ONE WEEK from today?
It's pretty glorious because then our kids get 2 week breaks in the fall, winter and spring...when it's actually nice weather here.

* Date night with Joe HERE.
{One of our local faves.}

I wish I had remembered to take a pic before we began eating. 😂 It's always SO good.
Lately we've been sharing the Country Fried Chicken - - it's HUGE + it's made with bacon gravy's super healthy.

* Dateline after.
{Don't all good date nights end with Dateline? No? Just us?}

Did anyone else watch it?
It was on the Jonestown Massacre and BOY was it crazy!

* Saturday morning we swung by my parents house...

...the kids wanted to put on a fashion show for them with their new school clothes.

The rest of my day was spent making oodles of cupcakes for my friends son's missionary party.

Pina Colada + Cookies n' Cream

I love being in my kitchen and baking but man... when I make a BIG batch of ANYTHING and then have to FROST it all...I'm wiped out afterwards.

London and I cooled off at our friend's pool when I was all done...

We got about 20 minutes of swimming in before the HABOOB hit.

It's a real thing. 
In AZ we don't get tornados or hurricanes....
we get monsoons and haboobs.

And they're CRAZY!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
After missing 2 weeks because of vacation, it sure was nice to get back.

My bro and Adam swung by afterwards with their 2 pups.

I seriously love Cubby's little, stubby legs so dang much.

* We grilled BBQ chicken for dinner and finished the night by laughing way too hard at AFV.
{It really doesn't take much to make this family of ours laugh.}

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 
On tap for this week:

* Prepping for our annual Coombs Family Back to School Dinner.  I'll be sharing some of our previous ones from years past this week!

*Panther Day for my boys: this is when they get their JR High schedules and walk around to see where their classes are.  

Wait WHAT?!? 
Yup....BOTH my boys will be in JR High this year.
I can't even.

* London's Meet the Teacher for Elementary school.

Fun times ahead....ready or not!
