Macy’s Back to School

This is a sponsored post. Everywhere compensated me for writing about the following event, but all opinions and witty commentary are my own.

Tomorrow I start year 3 of law school – my very last first day of school ever! I probably said that on the first day of senior year of college, but I really mean it this time. I already did plenty of clothes shopping in NYC, but yesterday I went to get textbooks and highlighters (no Trapper Keeper though unfortunately).

Coincidentally, yesterday I was also asked to attend a back to school event at Macy’s with Radio Disney. You could shop (duh), play games, and meet the members of Cimorelli. Obviously, as a mature adult with no kids, I never listen to the insanely catchy pop songs they play on Radio Disney, and it certainly isn’t number 2 on my car presets. That would just be silly. And since I never listen to Radio Disney, I of course had no idea who Cimorelli were and didn’t sing along when the DJ played their song. Or maybe it was the opposite of what I just said. You’ll never know.

OK, so maybe I had heard the Cimorelli song a couple times, but I didn’t realize they were so popular! There was a huge line to meet them. (No, I didn’t stand in it. Promise.)

I can only hope these kids got around to shopping once they got their autographs. Back to school shopping is serious business, folks! Just ask this guy:

He clearly takes his job as balloon animal artist very seriously. How else would he craft such works of art as this orange bunch of grapes with ears on a stick?

Suffice it to say this was not your typical back to school shopping event! I don’t know if things like this existed when I was a kid. It’s entirely possible that they did and my mom just made sure I didn’t know about them.

What do I remember about back to school shopping? Mainly: Limited Too. Do you guys remember that store? I think they’re all called Justice now. Limited Too was the best. I had quite the collection of plaid scrunchies thanks to that place. I also had a lot of things with peace signs and smiley faces. I remember trying on half the store and wanting to get pretty much everything and my mom would make me narrow it down. But why can’t I have all the clothes?! Man, that must have been exhausting. Sorry, mom.

To all you parents out there, I do not envy you! Best of luck sending your kiddos back to school…and wish me luck on my 3L year!
