Adorable and Modern Kid’s Backpacks


for backpack sources head to my babble blog

I had so much fun scouring the web for the cutest kids backpacks! There are some you can buy and some you can DIY, and some you can just stare at and wish you could afford. Hahaha! I will probably end up making one for Gigi for preschool. Her backpack has to be able to fit full size folders and papers, but I still want it to be somewhat toddler size. I’m loving the square-shape options! Maybe I just need to make one for myself! Poor Gigi.

I’m pretty beat from this week. I’m looking forward to a weekend of catching up on my “stories” as my Grandma calls them. Right now that includes: Master Chef, Capture, Inked Master and America’s Next Top Model. I’m not quite sure what that says about me…probably nothing good. But this mama needs her veg time! What are you watching these days? I’m toying with the idea of diving into all seven or eight seasons of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. You know, something to snuggle up with as these summer nights turn into fall. Thoughts?

I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

    I love all of these!!!! Great post!

  2. I just started season 6 of Grey’s- at the rate I’m going, I should be completely caught up by the time season 10 airs. Now I really don’t know what that says about me. 😉

    1. Basically it means you have amazing stamina. and I respect that! hahaha

  3. 1. Have I mentioned how much I appreciate your tone/outlook on blogging? You are such a breath of fresh air. 2. I follow you on instagram and you mentioned that you wanted us to send over any diy’s that we have blogged about. So here is mine . I tried to make something local work since I was behind on my school shopping, but I don’t know. We will see how long it lasts. I am loving the options that you found. 3. My husband has been watching Breaking Bad on Netflix and it is giving me nightmares. So don’t watch that.

    1. thank you! please refer to email. HAHAHA

  4. Hi there, Alison 🙂 I’m a newer reader to your blog and wanted to drop a note to say hello and that I’ve really been enjoying reading through many of your posts. (Loved the series on watercolour, by the way!) Also, can I just say that I TOTALLY want a Kanken backpack!!!! Seeing you post a photo of one reminded me just how darn cute they are. I’ve been obsessed with them for a while now and I plan to make one mine, some day. 🙂

    I somehow tricked my husband (who is a total meat and potatoes Idaho manly man) into watching Grey’s. Then I found all the seasons on the ‘Flix and wow, we were completely useless every night for a few months. It was like, “Hurry and get the kids in bed and let’s watch Grey’s!!” and then, “Oh hey mother in law thanks for coming from Utah to visit, we need to go to bed now.” while we watch Grey’s on our ipad in our bed until 1:00 a.m. Ridiculous. Anyway I’m happy to say we powered through it and it’s so stupidly awesome and we can’t wait for the next season to start! I bear my testimony of smutty reality tv and good medical dramas. Amen.
