Thank Goodness It’s Back To School! #TGIBTS ($75 Wal-mart Gift Card Giveaway!)

Back to school walmart


Rows and rows of notebooks, folders, backpacks, glue and markers! I love back to school time! I might be in the minority here, but I let Josh stay home with the kids so I can really enjoy buying all their school supplies by myself. I get so excited about back to school time every year. My kids might groan and be upset. 

We’d like to hear your point of view on what Back to School means for you and your family. For some it’s stressful, others it is exciting, but regardless everyone wants to put their best foot forward during the new school year.

The hashtag #TGIBTS is Thank Goodness It’s Back To School!  For me, that is SO true!! I am thrilled to dress my kids up in their shiny new clothes and get back into a solid routine again. For my kids, it means they get to see their friends again! 

Fruit of the Loom sent me a $75 Wal-Mart gift card for back to school shopping.  I did not take my kids with me.  I’m not really all that great at keeping my cool when I have 3 kids asking me 3 questions at the same time while trying to navigate the crowded aisles.  So alone I went! And it was awesome.

This is me, in 1992. I was 7.5 years old, finishing second grade. I remember always loving school. All the books I could read, playing with my friends at recess. In 2nd grade the big fad was string games (can anyone still do Jacob’s Ladder? I forgot!).  My friends and I were fascinated by Kristi…
