And Today We Played

I don’t care if you’re tired and hungry and you have to pee, mommy will drag you all over Nashville to shop for every school supply mentioned on your kindergarten list and YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Nothing will stop MOMMY ON BACK TO SCHOOL OVERDRIVE, fueled by two large Cokes over an awesome lunch of black bean quesadillas (yes we took our kid to a roadhouse for lunch and she loved the music, which included Ozzy and Janis Joplin, and more importantly the chicken tenders and fries.)

Besides, I will buy you glamorous Hello Kitty sandals and a Hello Kitty tank top at Target if you tolerate just one more hour of shopping.

Worth it, no?


She’s not blinded by the bling, although that is possible…this is what you get when you request CHEESE!

p.s. Most Tennessee parents probably know this, but this weekend is the sales tax free weekend for school supplies and clothing and other items, so go forth and shop! You know you need a new Trapper Keeper.

    I used to LOVE to go school supply shopping…must be where my fondness for office products stems from.

  2. Erin says:

    very cute shoes 🙂 you had to go all over town for supplies? you couldn’t find everything at target? (kidding- my grandmother took us school shopping and went all over town).

  3. Blonde Mom says:

    We only went to WalMart and Tarjay…we were just at WalMart (our first stop) for what seemed like forever.

    Our elementary school has ready made packets of supplies you can purchase, but I wanted to take her shopping for them…for one thing I think it is cheaper, and it’s that whole back to school rite of passage thing that is so much fun! 😉

    I shopped today (tax free for us here too) and it was HELL. I’m still not sure if it was worth it to save the 8 bucks that I saved.

  5. Blonde Mom says:


    We went Friday morning and it actually was not bad at all. I knew if we didn’t get out Friday that Saturday would be hellish!

    I also noticed that neither WalMart or Target had any of the school uniform things on sale. So the savings there was probably minimal.
