high on school supplies

I don't know about you but, for some reason, I get super stoked when back-to-school time rolls around. It doesn't matter if I'm taking classes or not. Ever since I was little, I get a rush every time I go into a Staples or Office Max. I just love office/school supplies. I love that feeling of a fresh start for the year. All new supplies in pretty patterns and colors that make you feel happy just looking at them.

So since I watch the noon, 5:00, 6:00 AND 6:30 local news casts (remember, I'm home. all. day.) I couldn't help but notice that the Volunteers of America were holding "Operation Backpack". Basically, they are trying to get people to donate backpacks filled with school supplies to give to low-income and homeless kids. While I am taking one class the fall, I won't really need any new supplies so I decided to get my helping-other-people fix and my school supply fix at the same time.

JC and I decided to get supplies for a fifth or sixth grader because fifth grade was my all time favorite grade. We created our own archaeological dig y'all. With artifacts and digging up and everything. That's pretty cool if you ask me.


I loaded up my little dude and with our list in hand we made our way to Target. JC wasn't AS excited as I was for school supplies but I think he had fun anyway.

When we got home I got to use Charles' fancy camera (canon 7d, for you camera nerds out there) and take some pictures of my porn school supplies.

school supplies overall

Had to get the pink Paul Frank backpack.

school supplies notebook

I fell in LOVE with this notebook. I actually got one for me too.

school supplies pencils

Had to get the pencils to match.

school supplies folders

Are these not the cutest folders ever??

I hope the little girl who picks this backpack out is pretty girly. I realized that 10 year old me probably would not pick this backpack out or these supplies. But 25 year old me totally would, and did.
