Kissing Up to Mrs. Young

So, I've been avoiding Target like the plague lately, trying to be good about sticking to our budget. But I did go yesterday and they had loaded the $1 bins with new stuff. CUTE stuff. I like to try and get a simple, little gift for Sam's teacher at the beginning of the school year, and these darling sticky notes and notepads were perfect. I used some paper scraps and made a tag with a cute embossed back to school bus on it (shared with me by the fabulous Jeni) and tied it on with twine. Sam was so excited to take it to his teacher today!

Happy Friday!

Oh what a cute idea! I saw all that stuff at Target earlier this week... but ended up grabbing a bunch of Mr. Men/Little Miss stuff for myself. I'm a sucker for the $1 spot, especially if it's nostalgic cartoon character stuff like that, or Hello Kitty. I'm such a dork!

Good luck with your run! I'm sure you'll do great. It's supposed to rain here tomorrow... not looking forward to running in the rain.

You had some good scraps of paper to make such a cute tag. I am sure his teacher will feel special.

Ooh...I'm sure Mrs. Young was won over! How could she not be, with such a cute present from such a cute kid.

And what a terrific name he has...
