School Supplies Make Me Giddy

I probably sound like a complete dork now but there is just something about pens, pencils, paper, all school supplies that just make me giddy. I've been accused that it's because it means my house will be quiet for a few hours a day when my lil chicks head out the door. This is not the case. I've always been this way, I LoVe shopping for school supplies!!
I was reminded of the scene from You've Got Mail where Meg Ryan talks about there being nothing better than a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. I agree with her. Maybe it's because fall is my favorite season, I love high school football, orange, red and yellow, apple cider. *sigh* EvEryThiNg about the upcoming season.
Yes, I realize it's still July but inside Target, it's back to school time which translates to fall for me! Take a look.
Cute lil woodland creatures on notebooks!
The wall of backpacks.
This is a good sign.
Sea of colors.
Hanitizer (that's what we call it)
Are you excited about the upcoming school year? Do the long, oh so specific school supply lists overwhelm you or do you like the challenge? Hope you enjoy this last month of summer!



  1. yes yes yes, bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils. that is the line i think of that defines the start of school and the start of fall, for me.

    coming over from somewhat simple blog roll call!

  2. Finally someone to identify with!! I read your blog regularly and this post just made me smile. I don't care how old I get, I LOVE perusing the school supplies aisles...especially when its back to school time. I sometimes wish I could go back to being a kid again and get a new backpack and new notebooks and folders, and a new box of crayola crayons (I'm probably a crayon snob--bit it's only crayola for me).

    I also think its just the approaching season of fall...I love everything about it too! Especially donning those warm, comfy sweaters and drinking apple cider!

    Thank you for joining me in dork-dom :O)

  3. Definitely a great movie! There's something about Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, I love them together!
    I agree, I'd like to buy myself school supplies too. While I don't go all out with a backpack & crayons, I get uber excited about a new pack of RSVP pens and a fivestar notebook. Oooh! Can't wait!!
