HUGE Back-to-School Supplies Shopping Haul!

Hey guys! Before we get onto the post, I just wanted to let you know that you can now use my code EMMIE20 at checkout to get 20% of your purchase from TwoFifty Scrunchies through August! And if you haven’t already, enter our giveaway here!

Hey daydreamers! For me, back-to-school shopping is a serious end-of-summer ritual. I love finding cute new notebooks and feeling a fresh new start! Actually, when we got back from school shopping, we found out that our school pushed back the first day from August 10 to August 24. I still decided to go ahead and do this post!

I’m honestly soooo ready to go back to school. This has, quite literally, been the longest summer of my entire life, and there’s not a ton you can do (things are opening up now for me, but at the beginning we couldn’t go anywhere!) I’m looking forward to an actual routine, being busy, studying and doing homework (honestly, who am I? πŸ˜‚) and, of course, cute new school supplies, which is what this post is about!

Also, if you haven’t yet, make sure to read my what’s in my backpack (beginning vs. end of the year) post before you read this one! Okay, let’s get right to it.

my twelfth birthday // scrunchies, sugar, and shopping!

The night before, I was so excited, I couldn’t even sleep. I kept waking up in the middle of the night, so excited for the day ahead that my mind wouldn’t turn off and just go to bed! But finally, morning came – and I woke up to the sound of my family singing the Happy Birthday Song.

Chewy also helped wake me up – haha! He’s so cute. I was so tired, but I couldn’t stop smiling!

My mom made this adorable set up with all of my presents and huge, golden “12” balloons!

Sorry this picture is a little blurry! Me, Unicorn, and Chewy checked out the presents before I started opening them.

Guess what? I GOT AIRPODS!!! I’m actually listening to them as I write this! I was sooooo excited and suprised to get these, and apparently so was Unicorn, since she decided to photobomb…

Chewy hung out in the piles of presents and wrapping paper, lol. I’ll definitely do a huge birthday haul post soon! I’m so thankful for all the awesome stuff I got.

But before I knew it, it was time to head to school! I’m the one in the back with my eyes closed, and Taylor is the other blonde one behind Barkleysblog123, the girl in the light grey hoodie, and the one with lime green shoes is my friend Sarabi (Code names). Since my school is really small – like reallllyyyyy small, only 40-something kids in my entire grade, on your birthday you can pass out little treats at lunch! I decided to do a fun gift bag with skittles and scrunchies – it was so funny, the moment I opened the bag all the girls swarmed around me and grabbed their favorite colors!

Messenger Kids filter, haha

Finally, school ended! Since I was going to the mall with my friend Taylor (from this video and this video on AGW!), we waited in the church right next to my school while Taylor had a Spanish class. I set up my airpods, listened to music, and read a little while we waited.

I also had this really weird JoJo Siwa snack thing. πŸ˜‚ It had nothing to do with JoJo Siwa at all – for some reason they just slapped her face on the plastic seal and called it “Lunch Kitz”? Not a fan of JoJo, but at least the graham crackers were really good.

Pretty soon, Taylor finished her Spanish class! We changed out of our uniforms and headed off to the mall.

Taylor gave me this really cute card with LLAMAS on it! Funny story: When the card is folded up, it just says “You’re weird.” So I was like, gee, thanks, but then I opened it up and read, “Just as as me.” πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ I’m so smart. *sarcasm* It was hilarious!

After walking through Dillard’s, we headed to Franchesca’s and looked at all the cute jewlry and accessories they had! I also got these adorable rose gold sunglasses from there! (And yes, we’re wearing shorts and shirts in October. This is Texas, people.)

After Franchesca’s, we shopped at Justice (and had a competition to see who could make the weirdest outfit!), Vera Bradley, the Children’s Place, Claire’s, and Bath and Body Works! I took a picture of this weird dinosaur hand sanitizer holder there. We loved smelling all of the weird hand soap scents! I had an alarm set on my phone for 5:56 PM, the exact moment I was born twelve years ago, and just after it went off, Taylor found this birthday cake hand sanitizer! I thought it was destiny…and then I thought it smelled horrible. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Taylor took a picture of the reflection in my sunglasses, and I edited it and added bokeh! I think this photo looks REALLY cool. It reminds me of California or summer.

The food at the Cheesecake factory was really good! I ordered the mini cheeseburger sliders and french fries. Since it was getting late, we also got a cheesecake to go that I actually still haven’t eaten yet!

Haha, this picture looks really weird! Why are my hands blurry – and what’s with the light dot on my eye? πŸ˜‚ Since it was my birthday, they gave me a free dessert – a layer of brownie, with vanilla ice cream and tons of whipped cream piled on top! The whole staff sang Happy Birthday, and it was awesome!

I actually had a lot of sugar that day – I got three candies in science class, two cake pops at lunch, half a cookie in study hall, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup for a snack, and the dessert and the Cheesecake Factory! YOLO, haha.

After that, we headed home and added stickers to my new Hydro Flask. Taylor and I watched a penguin movie and stayed up until 12:30 talking! I had a ton of fun on my birthday – it was one of the most magical days ever, and I’m glad I could share it with you! I’ll definitely be doing a birthday haul, and NEXT WEEKEND I’M GETTING MY POINTE SHOES, AHHH!

What do you like to do on your birthday? Did you read the llama card like I did? Isn’t Chewy adorable? Your opinion on JoJo Siwa? What’s your favorite store at the mall?
