right on target!

Tonight we have big plans! I am counting down the hours to the end of the work day, because I am so excited I just can't wait. We are headed to one of my favorite places in the world! That is right ladies and gentleman, we are headed to Target!!!
And these are just a few of the items I am obsessing about currently....

Even though I already have rainboots, these are so cute for spring and I love love love the color, Tiffany Blue!
This is so J. Crew, yet so much cheaper!!!

This would be the perfect addition to my collection of moravian stars!

There really is nothing like the pristine and sterile linoleum floors that weave in and out of industrial metal shelving holding some of the most affordable (and stylish) home goods that money can buy. For me, there is something inherently therapeutic about shopping at Target, and I'm not really sure if it is simply because I have been sucked into their creative and funky ad campaigns, or if it is because I feel like I could move into a target store and have everything I need right at my disposal including clothing, stylish furniture and an array of food both fresh, frozen and packaged.Any of you who have read the book or seen the movie "Where the heart is" will know what I am talking about, although that takes place in a walmart which is an entirely different store and an entirely different story(for those of you who don't know, Dan & I boycott walmart). But back to Target. I can spend hours there discovering things I didn't even know I needed that will simplify my life and elevate my sense of style all for only 22.99!!! A dream come true!

We are headed there in search of a bedskirt (I just really couldn't bear to pay pottery barn prices for something that gathers dust bunnies off the floor) but I cannot wait to learn what other semi-useful items I will discover during my exploration of the red and white mecca of all things affordable. Stay tuned for my finds on the adventure to queens!

Hello Caitlin...Megan Bunch here visiting with sister Rachel...just wanted to say hooray for your darling post on Target. I feel the same way. Nothing is a better escape from life than Target!! And when you come back to Utah for a visit, I want to go there for you so you can help me to continue to decorate my house. I have heard from Katie you have a great nack! Enjoy NYC. Loves to Dan. --Megan

The one in Brooklyn is nicer than the one in Queens and might be easier to get to. Just in case you didn't know about that one...take the 4/5 to Atlantic Avenue and Target is right there when you come out.

But be careful what you buy....it is much different attempting to carrying everything you buy back home on the subway! :) Good luck...and I can't wait to hear what you find!

And now it is really Rachel, Katie's sister. I love Target too and just moved to Irvine and one of my favorite things is the Target a couple blocks away. Except when I go for a $6.99 mattress pad for Mia's bed, I spend $60 on who knows what?? Love it!!
