My Happy List: All About Shelley!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

My Happy List features Shelley this week!

1.   Yesterday was Shelley's first day of high school.  Having a routine makes me happy!  We all function better with one!  I am also happy that Shelley has such a positive attitude about school.


Shelley loves her new outfit from the LF Boutique in New Orleans.  She is my fashionista!

2.   Shelley redecorated her room and I think she did an amazing job.  I am happy it is done, and Shelley will write a guest post on Thursday about her room.  Please stop by and leave a comment.  It would thrill her to read them!



 3.   Jane sent me this cute Flora Doora, and Shelley commandeered it for her room.  Jane's kind spirit makes me so happy!


What is making you happy this week?  Join Mamarazzi, and share your happy!

Until next time...

  1. Summer has been so busy, I have not been on the blogs much, but so happy I saw this one about your daughter! We have daughters with the dame name, but mine has her own daughter too.

    Cannot wait to see Shelly's post on Thursday! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I would love to see Shelley's guest post. And her blouse is unique and fab! Have a great week Ricki!

  3. I can tell right now that I am going to love Shelley's room!

    How cute is her new outfit? Wishing Shelley a happy new school year! My daughter is headed to high school too.

  4. This is certainly a teaser post, just giving us little glimpses of the new room. Can't wait to see it.

  5. So glad to hear she is happy with school. She is a freshman too this year isn't she? Her room is darling. Can't wait to see it all. Hope you all are doing okay and feeling a little better each day. I am actually loving the school routine too. Going well so far.

  6. Ricki Jill,
    So nice to hear she loves school, makes learning so much better! Cute blouse and I'm sure her room is really cute.

  7. First day of high school is such a big day! Hope she continues to enjoy it.

  8. Wow, an exciting day for you and Shelly! Her little outfit is adorable. If Shelly is like her Mom, her room will be gorgeous!

  9. Totally agree about a routine. I loved summer with my kids but we were always ready to go back to school and settle down. Your daughter's outfit is adorable. The first day of school outfit is of the utmost importance (as we who have daughters know.) :o)

  10. Cannot wait for Shelley's guest post! I know her room is amazing!

  11. This is really a beautiful picture of Shelley with the gorgeous backdrop! I wish her all the best in high school!


  12. Can't wait to read her post! Love her shirt!

  13. Aw, I can't wait to see the room! A polka dot dress dummy is just adorable...what a great idea. :D

  14. Shelley has obviously already developed great taste. :)

  15. Oh how exciting...I remember my first day of High School.....oh the nerves!

    What is making me happy....good food, family laughter ... and school right around the I can get back into my regular routine here in the studio. I need routine..and regularity....I function so much better!
