$10 at Target, Emily’s Birthday Edition

Typically once a month I head to Target, photograph a whole bunch of things I love, and share my finds with you, leaving the “big reveal” of what I actually bought for the very end. Not this month. This month I took one of my favorite sidekicks to Target with me for a little pre birthday shopping trip and what we had turned out to be more of an adventure

I explained the rules to her in the car on our 4 minute drive to Target (torture to be that close, I know). I told her she had $10 and could buy anything she wanted to buy. She immediately decided that she was going to buy Legos and didn’t have much interest in looking at anything else. However, when we arrived I did a pretty good job of distracting her… until the very end.

We looked at candy in the dollar spot.

Talked about how pretty this skirt is.

And this purse.

Posed with #Bullseye the Target dog.

Found every Minnie item in the whole store. These were just a few of our favorites.

Tried on sunglasses. 

Took selfies in the makeup aisle…. she leaned in for a smooch all on her own. My heart melted and I was so glad I caught this moment on camera.

Laughed about her “HUGE hands”.

Dreamed about the pool days in the somewhat near future.

Played in the toy aisle.

And ended our visit in the Lego aisle, picking out yet another set. 

How did it add up?

Lego Set $9.99
Total $9.99
Red Card -5%
Tax +8.0750
Grand Total $10.26

Over budget by a few cents, but she was totally worth it.

Mark your calendars now for next months linkup, March 20th! I am hoping to find items to decorate for Easter or to make spring break more fun!

Friday Highlights 2.17.17

Hello Friday!

What a week of celebrating. We had so much fun this week friends. Between Valentines Day, a trip out-of-town to KC, and a little girl who turns 6 in just 4 short days, we are keeping busy!

I wish I had done a better job of documenting our Valentine festivities this year. I think we celebrated more than we ever have before. But would you believe I didn’t even touch my camera the whole day? I knew the lighting would be terrible for photos and sometimes you just want to live in the moment. Especially since I can’t ever seem to find a happy medium. I either take hundreds of photos or none. 

Let’s take a look at this week Friday Favorites!

14 Days of Love, A Photo Challenge Recap

First off I want to say a huge thank you to those of you who participated in this photo challenge. Whether it was all 14 days, some of them, or encouraging others to join, I really appreciate all of you and your support. I am also thrilled to say we had 739 photos use our hashtag as of the morning of February 15th! Not to bad for a photo challenge that was announced only 36 hours before it started. With one successful challenge under my belt, I really hope to host more photo challenges in 2017.

Since planning and executing photo prompts requires a lot of planning, creativity and work I thought it would be fun to recap and share my photos with you today. You may have already seen them over on Instagram, but you very likely may have missed some of them too.

Tall Girl Problems

One thing that you may not realize about me is that I am tall, a little over 5’10” to be exact. I’ve always been tall. When I made my debut on this earth I was 23″ long so being taller than normal has kinda always been my thing. Oh if I only had a dollar from every time I was asked if I played basketball or told I should be a model when I was growing up. I could at least go buy some new shoes (big ones 😳 ). 

From being called the jolly green giant on the play ground as a kid, to the boys being mean to me in middle school (only to suddenly change their tune years later). Lets not forget the stares and looks thrown my way any time I wear heels. Being tall has certainly come with its fair share of challenges, perks, and comedic moments. Today I wanted to share a few of the awkward ones with you.

Celebrating The Day of Love, Our Valentine Plans

It’s Valentine’s Day, the day of love! 

In all honesty we haven’t always done a lot to celebrate Valentines Day in previous years, but we have tried to step up our game recently. Why? Because we have little girls! Just because I’m not a “mushy” romantic doesn’t mean that they won’t be. I want them to know that love is worth celebrating (and not just on Valentines Day). So today we celebrate because those sweet little girls are watching and showing them a good example of marriage is always something we find ourselves working to do.
