5 things i love this week -- edition 3

one. The girls needed something to keep them warm on those days that aren’t rainy, but are cold. And, I didn’t want to spend a fortune on them, since both girls are growing like weeds right now. Old Navy sent me a 20% off code (ONSALE20 — valid in stores and online through 10/10) and I thought these Frost-Free Quilted Vests ($29, before you use the discount) were super cute. The girls loved the blue with green polka dots and I grabbed the boy’s version in orange for Everett, which makes him easy to spot at the park.

two. Lauren at A Mommy in the City made these cute Tissue Paper Tassels for her daughter’s birthday and I pinned her easy DIY post immediately. I think I’m going to try these for a baby shower I’m co-hosting next month…

three. Now that it’s a bit colder, the kids are starting to lose that soft, summer skin. I grabbed this SheaMoisture Raw Shea Chamomile and Argan Oil Baby Healing Lotion (about $10, found in the baby section) at Target to use on the kids after their baths. It smells soo yummy. I may dip into it for myself sometimes too. Don’t tell. Do  you have a favorite lotion to use on your little ones?

four. When I was a tween (before the term had been invented, FYI), I used to devour my Seventeen Magazines for the quizzes. In fact, my friend Katie and I used to make up our own quizzes, within the magazine, because we loved them so much. Gosh, I miss being a kid in the early 90s. Those were good times. ANYWAY. SheKnows Parenting took me back with their 2013 Parenting Awards. Clicking through to vote for my favorite brands and products gave me a major Seventeen Magazine flashback moment.

five. So, I’m not going to fully confess to stalking Brian Paquette, but… there was this little collaboration he did with Sunset Magazine at Seabrook and then this feature about his home on coco+kelley. And, I may do some over-liking on his Instagram account. Okay, this is sounding way worse than I thought…

being 5 things i love at my new target.



.me, in action, at target. taken by everett, along with 39 other photos.

Today, we spent some time running errands in our new town.

(I think “town” is appropriate for Bellingham, right? Bigger than a village? Not as big as a city?)

We picked up registration forms for the girls’ new school (which happens to be my OLD school), we stalked a few houses that we have our eyes on, tested out the quality of the closest Starbucks drive-thru… and, we went to Target.

Exploring a new Target is both exciting and nerve-racking. It’s fun to see everything in a new light, but the anxiety of being able to find all of your favorites without having to double-back through the aisles is enough to drive a girl to the bottle. Good thing they also sell wine at Target. (i don’t even drink wine, but whatever. you get it.)

I tried to find more favorites to share, but the girls discovered the knock-off American Girl aisle and we had to stand there for approximately 84-minutes while they debated about which outfit to share and by that time, Everett was close to throwing a fit and I didn’t want the Canadians to start staring.


FEED for Target Acrylic Water Bottles ($13 each) // These were on the end of the aisle and were my favorite from the FEED Collection that was on display. I think they’re screaming for some iced tea.

Threshold Seagrass Large Milk Crate ($40, set of two) // I think that these are far better looking in person than they are online. I am certainly my mother’s daughter because I love a good basket.

Snack Bowls // Not found online // These were on the end of the aisle and I love this pattern. We have some of the other lunchbox containers from this collection and they’re so fun. I believe these little guys were about $2 each.

Jar Candles // Not found online // I hunted for these online too, but couldn’t find them. I believe they’re a new collection. Someday, I want to work in candle branding. How fun would that be? $13 each.

French Bull Collection ($35 and up) // I saved the best for last, obviously. I practically gave Everett whiplash (for the second time this week. silly car accident.) when I saw these pretties. I think that the Crockpot is my favorite, although, I wouldn’t kick that toaster out of bed either.


.this is how Everett was feeling by the time we left.

being 23 things i bought at target yesterday. edition four.



Talking about Target is SO POPULAR now. I mean, hello? Have you seen Target Does It Again? You absolutely MUST follow them on Instagram. File that under things I wish I’d thought of, just under that stupid Where’d You Go Bernadette that I devoured. Don’t mind my bitterness. I adore them all.

Now, back to business…

23 Things I Bought at Target Yesterday! 
(Including the bonus round: One thing that I bought, but that didn’t even come home with me.)

1. Diapers.

2. More diapers. A different kind.

3. Meyer’s Dish Soap in lemon verbena. My favorite scent.

4. Method Dish Soap in tomato vine for Neighbor Sara. Which happens to smell just like weed. Not that I’d know. #igrewupinbellinghamduh

5. Dryer sheets.

6. This book for Janie.

7. Gum.

8. Gum for Janie.

9. Strawberry jelly. In a squeeze tube.

10. Two boxes of macaroni and cheese. Monster’s University edition.

11. Those apple sauce in a pouch things.

12. Bread.

13. Milk. (I think the Target brand tastes odd. Just me?)

14. Hand sanitizer. Getting a jump start on school supplies this year to hopefully avoid this situation again.

15. Deodorant.

16. More deodorant.

17. Burts Bees shave cream for Josh. Just noticing it rang up for nearly twice as much as the sign said.

18. Set of two teeny tiny composition books for the girls. Seriously. They’re only about three-inches big.

19. Pink erasers. 2nd Grade school supplies.

20. Apparently, more pink erasers, which we didn’t actually buy.

21. This sassy binder in pink and gold to organize my meal plan stuff.

22. A Hot Wheels car for Ev. Obviously.

23. The bag they charged me for to carry all of my goodies home.

Okay, tell me what you’re most recent Target list looked like — were there erasers involved?
