When I was younger, mid to late July marked the beginning of one very special event: back-to-school shopping. I both dreaded and looooved this time of the summer. I dreaded it for obvious reasons - summer's ending??! And I looooved it because me and my sister rarely got to go on shopping sprees. Sure we'd get new things here and there, but spreeees? Nuh-uh. That only happened once a year.
Unfortunately, there were rules involved with these shopping sprees... I wasn't allowed to wear my new clothes until school started. Well that's just cruel. I remember staring so longingly at my new hooded short-sleeve shirt with giant flower print paired with white jean shorts (hey it was the '90s). Boy was I a hip, hip 4th grader.
Well no more teachers, no more books... now I call the shots! I'll spree whenever I feel like it and wear those new duds the next day, ya hear! Oh the joy of being an adult. Let's do some shopping, k? No limitations...
Shabby Apple is giving away a $50 gift card to one of you fab artsocial readers!! Fifty dollars for anything you want... my 4th grade self (and adult self) would be in heaven. Plus everyone gets 10% off any Shabby Apple item by using the code artsocial10off. You lucky ducks.
