Target Does It Again!

Hello friends, thank you so much for everyone who commented on my last post about converting my Living Room into a Play Room.  Nothing drastic has taken place just yet!  I was quite surprised to hear how many of you have actually done this.  It sounds like certainly something I may consider in the future.  For now, I continue to shuffle toys around from the Great Room, to the Bedrooms, to the Basement, etc.  I have found some more storage and have gotten creative with turning their second closets into toy storage. I will keep you posted if I decide to do this.  It's a long Winter so I may get a little crazy one day and start the transformation process. 

I wanted to share with you all today about my latest Target finds and obsessions.  If you have followed my blog for awhile, it comes to no surprise that Target is by far my favorite store, my happy place!!! 

Not only do I love Target for it's amazing products and how it just "gets" us women, it is probably one of the only stores I can take both kids to and not have to worry about one of them not fitting into the shopping cart.  I don't know if this is the case where you live, but all of our grocery stores have really tiny carts.  Nicholas's carrier just does not fit into a grocery cart like it does a Target shopping cart.  I rarely ever take both kids to the grocery store unless I am really desperate.  If I do become brave enough, I take our double stroller and look like a shop lifter putting all of my items into the bottom bin of said stroller.  Don't even get me started about Kohl's carts! They are so tiny and not Mom friendly at all if you have two children.   Now Sam's Club has the right idea...

Their shopping carts hold two babies!  I have to say now that I am a mother of two, Target and Sam's are pretty much the only stores I feel comfortable going to without Jeff because of their roomy and accommodating shopping carts.

Here are a few things I am loving right now from the amazing Target:
Mustard Mossimo Cardigan
I mentioned in my 2013 Resolutions that I want to make an effort at being a little more fashionable this year.  I have seen on several blogs this famous cardigan and was thrilled when I found it at our local Target.  I love how Audrey from Putting Me Together has styled it in so many different ways!!!

Crest 3D White Whitestrips - Shimmer White
I picked up a box of teeth whiteners to try.  I have honestly never tried whitening my teeth before.  I am nervous about how the whitener can make your teeth sensitive but I could really use to whiten my teeth a few shades.  I bought one of the more inexpensive Crest Whitestrips that appear to be especially made for Target customers. 
Circo Chevron Fitted Crib Sheet
Have you seen the new Chevron sheet collection in the baby section this week?  Oh my goodness!!!  I own a few gray chevron sheets from Pottery Barn kids, however, may need to pick up a few more at Target.  These are adorable.  I really wish they made these for twin beds, we are just about to move Jillian from her toddler day bed to a big girl bed or else I would be snapping up the pink ones!

Mossimo Jeweled Flats

I am sure you have all heard that Pantone has chose Emerald as the color of 2013. In honor of that, I am hoping to pick up these babies at Target later today....

Threshold Lamps and Lampshades

Have you seen their Spring home collection yet? Beautiful lamps and lampshades caught my eye the other day.
2013 Heather Bailey Chevron Planner
Although I was sad to say goodbye to my 2012 Erin Condren planner, I love my new chevron planner from Target! It's a perfect size and has everything that I love in a planner.
I think we can all agree to this...

So what are you loving at Target lately?  I would love to hear!

    I am *trying* so hard to not spend so much $ at Target this year...your post is not helping my cause :)

  7. So true on that last photo. Cute, Cute things.

  8. Oh do I ever share your affinity for Target. I get lost in there for hours. Most of the employees know me by name, yes it's that bad.

    Hope you get the emerald shoes. They were on clearance at my Target the other day for $7.98!!!

  9. Hey just came across your blog. Im in India no Target...but recently visited Miami and I admit ♡Target.
    What I loved?
    That I could buy some funny glasses for my kids (kids were not with me)
    The variety is awesome..I bought combs and some clothes.
    Was I living there I would have bought zip pouches and surf and the tall peanut butterjar etc.

  10. Target can be my happy place but also a dangerous place...just too many cute things!!! I just found your blog via Twitter and can't wait to read more!

  11. Not kidding, I think I was at Target every single day last week. My favorite place! I scored some awesome clearance deals - $7.00 for twin size flannel sheets, a bath rug for $5, and bath towels for $1.70. I saw those lamp shades in the ad this week and fell in love! And your planner is super cute! Love Erin Condren but no planner should cost that much! (I did order a Kindle case from her site and love it!)
