Back To School Shopping Mom Style

In celebration of the girls going back to school yesterday, I decided to take the day and have fun. 

I went shopping without having to bargain on how long we'll be in the store. 
No whining. 
No asking if I was done yet. 
No asking if I could buy them something.  It was SO nice!! 

I hit Target first. I had to return somethings so technically I had to go! 

Then of course I bought this stuff: 

Couldn't pass up the American Crafts 6x6 pad on clearance! They're my favorite papers too...the fact that I already own a few of the same pad is meaningless!! And they had The American Crafts Halloween line too! More cuteness! The sequins are fabulous!!  Of course the NCIS DVD's aren't scrapping related exactly, but I love to watch them as I scrap! 

From there I hit Dunkin Donuts for a large coffee, light and sweet, pleaseandthankyou, and headed off to Michaels. 

I've been coveting the Midnight Edition of Project life for awhile. I saw most of the products were on sale 40% off but this didn't   look marked down. I put it in my cart knowing I had a coupon, it rang up $17.99! YES!! I got the MAMBI pocket pages since they were Halloween themed and so cute too! (Don't mind my toes or the lack of vacuuming in my scrap room!) 

 From there I was headed home until I realized I'd be passing Home Goods which is conveniently next to TJ Maxx...and you know you can't go to one and not the other!! 

Found some organizing bins for my pantry at Home Goods (no pic) then I hit TJ Maxx. 

I didn't see much throughout the store until I hit the stationary section. They had a ton of Amy Tangerine & Dear Lizzy date stamps but I already had them and they had some Studio Calico wood veneers. I picked up 2 package since they're so cheap and saw these two paper pads. Loved the Snippets colors!! Going to use these for my pocket pages! 

From there, I finally did go home. Then of course, I had some organizing and rearranging to do for my new goodies!! 

It was a great day!!
