Just right off the bat – you can still enter a Lilly for Target Giveaway! Go enter now!! And then come right back! This ends TONIGHT (Friday)!!
This week’s featured blogger is Anne at In Residence! If you’re a regular reader here, the name probably sounds familiar! Just recently, I have been linking up with her Your Spring Style series. Anne and I have been blogging buddies for a while now! She’s on of my daily blog reads. We also have husbands who are in the throws of medicine residencies (her hubby is almost done!!) AND our kiddos are just days apart. Anne has regular series on capsule wardrobes, books she’s currently reading (I basically add each one to my library reading list), and a fun Pin to Present series! Go over and say hi!!
Anyway, here’s what I was up to this week!
1. Lilly for Target. Can we have a collective sigh? I wasn’t all that successful…. I basically missed the whole online part because the site was down, and when I decided to show up at Target 2 minutes after the store opening, everything was gone! But somehow, one week later, I’ve got a lot of stuff now! I think, now that the dust has settled, I have: 1 toddler dress, 1 clutch, 1 makeup bag, 1 nail polish, 1 shift dress, 1 bracelet AND THE MUGS! (Which is really what I wanted out of everything!)
When a big shopping event comes along, here are my tips that have worked for me:
- Employ a friend that’s REALLY good at this sort of stuff, aka Tif! She was Miss Super Shopper! She snagged all the items for our giveaways AND a few things more me! Thank you, friend!!
- Have a super sleuthing Mother-In-Law who loves a good challenge! Mine found a set of mugs hiding in her local Target’s sporting goods section a few days ago!
- Discuss how disappointed you were at Bible Study, and then THOSE ladies start sleuthing for you! Yesterday I got a call from one of my friends and she said she was leaving Target, saw a girl returning a huge bag of Lilly, and just bought it all for me to dig through because she knew I was disappointed! Win!! I’m heading there this morning to take a look!
So, you see ladies, sometimes not standing in line or missing the online event DOES pay off! HA!
Well phew! I feel like that was enough right there for one H54F! HA! But there are a few more highlights…
I had some wonderful hang out time with some sweet friends. We had a girls’ night on Tuesday for pedicures and desserts (side note – I haven’t had a pedicure in 2 years…… I was pretty sure my nail lady was swearing under her breath…. AND had to use some elbow grease to scrub my feet…). And then yesterday we all took our kiddos to our local kids museum and had a bit of a wander. It’s so wonderful to have a group of supportive, fun friends who ALSO have kiddos the same age!
We’ve entered into some weird stage of adulthood…… We bought a mini van. Our current car has been showing signs of death (lots of warning lights that appear, and then magically disappear) so we thought we’d jump on this a little early, before it strands us on the side of the road. It’s a used Chrysler Town & Country, which is the same van (but obviously an older version) that my parents had when I was growing up. I have, essentially, this week, become my parents. We pick it up today. Stay tuned on Instagram for a “What’s in My Van” pic or maybe a Van Tour?
We have an action-packed weekend coming up! Tonight my husband and I are going out on a date, sans Elizabeth! *Happy Dance! We’ll be celebrating his birthday. And then Saturday we have a fun potluck picnic with my Bible Study group. Sunday should be a little quieter, but are still meeting up with friends for dinner. So yay!
