Thursday Thoughts: Target Gets Me Every Time

I love me some Target. I have put myself in the danger zone by using their Up & Up baby formula because every time I need to get a new package of it...well, I spend money on other things too.

I have to say...I love their latest collection of Merona purses - called the Timeless Collection. So many bright colors, and a few good ones for fall too. I did manage to restrain myself from purchasing {for today} knowing that I need to purge some of my old ones before getting any new. But seriously, for the price, these are so great.


I know those are small pictures, but head to the link below the picture ASAP to see more.

I didn't manage to make it out of the boot section without a purchase...but in my defense, I needed some black boots for this season and these were called, it was like totally meant to be. Literally, calling my name.

And of course, I always hit the clearance racks for Farrah...they are getting rid of their summer stuff, so I like to buy for the next year up. I am seriously in a bad habit of buying her things every time I go somewhere.

Seriously, it's true what they say about WILL go broke.

And while it was on my list, I got some more Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair {love this stuff} and they happened to be on a BOGO 1/2 off sale, so I went ahead and got the day stuff as well. I'm really trying to take my skincare seriously now that I'm in my 30s. I did care for it before, but now I'm extra serious.

So, how has Target eaten into your wallet lately?

Mid-Week Musings

I feel like it has been a pretty lazy week so least in terms of doing things outdoors with the kids. It's been raining a good bit in the afternoons.

I started off the morning going to a class at my gym called Cardio Craze and crazy it was. It was much like Insanity except since you are in public, you're probably pushing yourself a bit harder than you do in the privacy of your own home {am I right?} So I am feeling it today, but so glad I did it...think I will try to make it a regular class I attend.

After we got home, I decided to throw on a shirt I haven't worn yet that I got a few weeks ago from eBay. Even though the day was forecasted to be gloomy, I wasn't going to let my outfit do the same!

Farrah is doing better and better sitting in her Bumbo. I feel like it's taking her a little longer than it did the boys to get her head control, well, under control...but she's coming along. We're doing a lot of tummy time and Bumbo time. My gym daycare said they had her in the exersaucer for about 10 min and that she did really well {though I've never put a baby in one until at least 5 mos, but I guess as long as her head wasn't flailing around}. 

After we picked up Tanner from school, I took them all out to Chick-fil-a so they could at least play on their indoor toy, since outside play was a bust. 

Anyway, not sure it's going to be much sunnier today...but here's hoping! Tanner has an early release day at school so I'll have him home a couple hours earlier than normal...I'm going to have to get creative with how I'm going to entertain them!

Cheers to Skinny Jeans

Or at least to being back in them.

Granted, they're a size or two up from my pre-Farrah size, but I don't feel so humongous in it's nice to feel like I can wear them again...especially in time for fall, when skinny jeans are a necessity to rockin' some cute boots.

I got a super-cute smile on camera from Farrah yesterday - had to share...seriously, y'all, this is how she is most of the time...I am so lucky.

And I managed to get one of her, Breckin and me:

Not the best, but I tried.

I started out the week right by hitting the gym yesterday. I'm waiting on those two cuties above to get up so I can go this morning too. {I already sent Tanner off to school.} Yesterday was some serious leg/glute work, today I'm undecided between shoulders/back, or hitting a class called Cardio Craze taught by my friend, Nicole. I am leaning toward the latter, but it's not until 9:30, so I'll have to keep up my motivation until then! I am so determined to cruise through this last 18 lbs though.

And now, I'm going to leave you with this totally cute snack I made for Tanner and Breckin the other day after my friend Suz posted it from Pinterest. So easy and I always have the ingredients on hand.

Smile! Have a happy Tuesday!

Monday Musings

Happy Monday! Hope y'all had a nice weekend. Mine was good...I got a chance to get out on Saturday night with some friends. We went to The Wine Bar in Mt. Pleasant, Co in downtown Charleston for dinner {so yum} and then to Tru Blue's House of Wings in Mt. Pleasant to cap the night off with karaoke! It was a fun night for three moms...three moms that all said they wanted to "start early" so we could be home by 10:30 and weren't actually home until 1:00am.

I wore a dress that I found at Ross for $9.00! It was actually really cute and colorful. I'm also loving some paisley lately, so between that and the bright colors, it was perfect for me. I'm going to wear it in the fall with boots for sure.

By the end of the night, I was drinking water, so I actually was not hurting at all the next day, but I've sworn off alcohol for the week again. I've realized it just feels better for me to detox a bit.

On Sunday, we had Jake's parents over in the evening for a bit...they had just gotten back from an Alaskan cruise that ended up being one of their worst vacations ever...there was just a lot of stress going on back home at the time with my FIL's company so neither of them were able to relax. It was supposed to be a trip for his 60th birthday, so feeling bad about the situation for them, especially because they've done so much for us - taken us to Disney World, Myrtle Beach, etc. - I suggested to Jake that we get his brother and his wife to go in on us and we get a vacation home for Thanksgiving week in Myrtle Beach. Then his mom doesn't have the stress of hosting and we all just get away and have a lot of fun. We surprised them with it when they came over and they were so excited. Here is where we are staying - it's actually in Surfside Beach, on Ocean Lakes Family Campground {so there will be a lot of stuff to do!}

This is the back, it is the white house.

Definitely looking forward to that. Hope y'all have a great week!
