Back to School

I suppose we're 1/2 way through the summer (or more... I refuse to count how many weeks we have left!), and school supplies are starting to multiply everywhere we go.  We went and got everything the my step-daughter needed for 7th grade last week.  I'm glad Trav went with me, because she wanted the design on the very top shelf, and no matter how much I stretch my 5'1" body, there was no.way.at.all. I was going to be able to get them! :)  I realize that they are deeply discounted in a few more weeks, but we were the only ones in the school supply isles, and it was great.  Totally worth the five bucks I might have saved if I waited and braved the masses.

I love the Target commercials this year.  All of them!  But this one, is by far my favorite...

Glitter.... so much Glitter!


  1. What a cute commercial. I used to love (still do) shopping for school supplies. Everything is so colorful and I just love notebooks and folders and organzing! My husband does not like it very much so for the last 2 years (and this upcoming year) we have paid for the kit that the school offers so we don't have to shop. The supplies are at the student's desk on the first day of school. Easy peasy.

  2. It's so hard to believe it's "back to school" time again! Seems like the summer just flew by!
