Favorite Things Party - Target Edition

What makes a good day a GREAT day?!  A solo trip to Target on a cold and dreary day!  I had a quick return to make this morning - and you know what that means...a warm Starbucks drink and a basket full of stuff that we don't need!  :)

You'll have to forgive the camera pics - I hadn't planned on posting but couldn't help myself!  :)
Here are a few favorite things from today's trip and also from an online order I placed last week!
The first place I go (after Starbucks!) is the Dollar Spot.  I've said this before but I truly think those little dots physiologically draw you in!!!
Today I found these super cute magnets - granted, they were $3 but worth it in my book!
These are PERFECT for an on-the-go activity for littles that get drug around for hours while waiting on their bigs!  :)
Put the magnets on a cookie sheet and you've got instant entertainment!  
And, for $3 - I don't even care if she loses the magnets!
In the carpool line waiting to pick up her sister.  Yep - best $3 I've spent in a long time!
I also purchased another set of magnets for a Big Sister gift that I'll be putting together soon for a friend.  I'm hoping to find a cute metal lunch box to put the magnets and a few other things in.  I loved when people thought of my older kiddos when I had Hope - especially with quiet toys they can play with by themselves!

After hitting up the Dollar Spot, I always enjoy going down the travel sized aisle.  There's just something about stuff that is miniature that I just love!
I also picked up quiet a few goodies for St. Patrick's Day!
And, just cause I couldn't stop, here's a few other things I couldn't live without!  ;)
similar style at Loft for $49.50 - makes me like my pair even better when I get to save some $$$

And this sounds super silly, but I bought some Altoids cause I have some craft ideas for the future...
this source has some FANTASTIC ideas for leftover tins!!!

Mike and I are headed to Vegas in a few weeks so I also did a little online shopping at Target last week.  Here's a few things I picked up...
strapless jumpsuit - $24.99 but I was able to snag it for 20% off
swimsuits right now are buy one get one 50% off - I got both of these for $50!  Score considering that these will only make an appearance in Vegas and at my parent's backyard pool!  :)

Thanks for hanging in there with me!  After I got started, I just couldn't stop!  Target does it to me every time!  

You can check out other Favorite Things - Target Edition posts on Erika and Andrea's blogs! I've already seen some stuff that I'll need to check out on my next solo trip to Target!  :)

Have a blessed day!  Gig 'em and God bless!

    1. Thanks! You know how it is - you go in there not looking for anything in particular and you leave with a basket full of stuff! ;) I can't believe how big she's getting! A booster seat is near to her future! She won't know how to feel not being in a full car seat!

    1. Thanks, Elaine! They definitely got her stamp of approval! Her older brother just started running track so I think these will be perfect to take along to keep her busy while we are waiting on his races! Thanks for stopping by!
