$100 Target Gift Card Giveaway and Back to School Ideas!!

30 Aug

Update — giveaway closed.
Winner was #414 — Mary Grace. Winner chosen via

It’s that time of year. 

My kids started school last week –I’m not sure where the summer went! We have some traditions that we love to make going back to school special for our kids. The first is documenting the first day of school.

Last year my friend Kami introduced me to Chalkboard Bubbles and I had such a fun time documenting the first day of school with them!! I did the same thing this year- it’s so amazing how the kids change from year to year!! 

We also have a special Crepe Party right before school starts. 
It’s a great special occasion where we talk about goals and plans for the up-coming school year. 
Today I’m so excited to have a special Back to School giveaway today from my favorite storeTarget!! 

Target is the place where we get the majority of our clothes, including back to school clothes. I LOVE that Target has great quality, fashionable clothes for such amazing prices. If you see my family or I on the street, the chances are about 100% that something we are wearing comes from Target.

Target’s Cherokee line is one of my favorite Target lines. We were just there last week looking at Fall coats and Hannah found this black wool Cherokee peacoat that she loved.

Favorite Thing Wednesday: Is it Spring yet???

5 Feb

I don’t know about you, but for me Winter seems to drag on forever! I think we had a snow day last year in April! Maybe I am feeling fidgety because of my trip last week, but I am ready for some warm weather.

Which brings me to my Favorite Thing for this week. I saw these at Target and I just couldn’t pass them up! And for $20 it gives me the hope that someday I will be wearing these babies, sitting on a lounge chair, sipping a cool lemonade. Hey, I can dream, can’t I?
{I love the cork wedge heel, the tan color and the fun circle shapes with the light stitching!}

{I love these because (again) the wedge heel and the color which is a really pretty red with a blueish undertone }

And now for my Un-Favorite-ist Thing:
If you remember my post a couple days ago about the toilet paper, you might appreciate this evidence I found this morning:

{Ella — “Mom, there’s no toilet paper!” Hmmm…..}{When I go in to investigate, there is a roll of unwrapped toilet paper on the table right next to the toilet... not actually on the roll.}

Also, I spent my afternoon putting together the project for Ella’s room and my Pay It Forward giveaway prizes. They are coming along and I can’t wait to show them to you on Friday!

Have a Super Day!
