I don’t know about you, but I think it’s REALLY hard to find cute longer shorts. I’ve been on the hunt for some black ones for two summers now and haven’t been able to find them. BUT I was walking through Target today and low and behold, they had some!! Not only in black, but white, and dark and light jeans! To top it off, they are only $19.99 and right now Target is offering a BOGO 50% online…making them $14.99 a pair! Side note: I feel like they are about an inch shorter on the model than they were on me. I’m 5’5 for reference.

This endearing story encourages a loving, caring, affectionate approach to life. Everyone in the world deserves a hug!! And the pictures are soooooo good. My kids absolutely LOVE this book. It would be perfect for a Easter basket, to save for Valentine’s Day next year, or like us, just to add to our bookshelves.
I am FREEZING here in the Midwest. Honestly it has never been worse. I’ve had the same pair of slippers for eight years so I’m pretty sure it’s time for some new ones. These J.Crew ones are only $20 (reg $50) when you use code WKND! They have a hard sole on the bottom which I need because I will inevitably wear them at some point for school drop off and pickup. Also, if you sign up for J.Crew Rewards you get free shipping. Click through the link for more details on J.Crew Rewards. Free shipping ALL OF THE TIME, no cost to you. It’s identical to the Madewell Insider program. You want it, I promise.
My husband and I aren’t very big into Valentine’s Day. I actually can’t remember the last time we did gifts for each other on Feb 14 or our anniversary. Horrible - I know. However, this year we made a goal to be better at getting either little gifts for each other on Valentine’s/Anniversary or planning a date to make it special. So I’ve been on the hunt for a few things that would make the cut for inexpensive, but not junk. This $10, What I Love About You book is PERFECT for the person you love! I get to fill in the blanks with all sorts of meaningful or funny things and I think he’s going to love it. I know I would love to receive it!!
Is there anything better than buying something you are unsure about and then using it WAY more than you ever thought you would? For me, that purchase is my Shark Handheld Vacuum.
Last year, I realized I had a gift card I had been holding onto for WAY too long (three years too long). I was waiting for the perfect thing to buy and I didn’t want to waste it. I had been thinking about buying a handheld vacuum for quite awhile, but again, was hesitant to pull the trigger because I didn’t know how much I would use it. On a night I couldn’t sleep, I purchased the Shark vacuum at 2:00 am and I’ve never been happier.
I use it constantly. To vacuum up all of the smashed goldfish in my car, clean off the baseboards, clean off my stove before scrubbing it down, suck up crumbs in hard to reach places…and that’s just to name a few.
This currently is my right-hand man for cleaning and I would highly recommend it. I paid $75 for mine, but right now you can get it off of Amazon for $48! If you have a handheld vacuum, fill me in on other ways you use yours.
I’m sure most of you are sick of talking about Christmas, but can we for one more minute?! I buy a Christmas book to add to our collection each year and this year it was Snowmen At Christmas. It was a total hit and we probably read it 20+ times! I paid $6.49 for it, but it’s on sale for only $3.49!!! That’s one of the lowest prices I’ve seen on a popular board book. Grab the deal before Amazon changes their mind!
When it comes to jewelry, I want something simple but stylish…something I can keep on for multiple days or even weeks because it goes with everything. These Universal Thread earrings are just that. I love that they come with a brushed silver, rose gold and a standard gold, giving me options no matter what I’m wearing. My ears are pretty sensitive, but these earrings haven’t bothered them one bit. If you see me, I will probably be wearing one of these three beauties for the next year or so. They are only $7.99 making them less than $2.75 a pair! Remember an additional 5% off with the Target REDcard and FREE SHIPPING!
I’m so excited because one of my favorite tops in my closet is on a killer sale. This ASOS Design Relaxed Long Sleeve Top is only $13, regularly $19. I paid $19 and I would pay it again. It is seriously that good. The length is perfect, the fit is even better and it’s thick enough to not have to wear anything under it! I wear it under sweaters and have the bottom or sleeves peek through, under cardigans and just plain. Trust me, this is a must have. And for those of you that are pregnant, they have it available in maternity for only $13 too!! Sizes are going fast, so hurry!

I found THE BEST stocking stuffer for myself this year…that isn’t treats! I am a huge treat lover, but it is nice to be able to fill my stocking with something that isn’t going to increase my waistline. This Universal Thread crossbody bag from Target is INCREDIBLE!! It’s only $15 (Buy one get one 50% off right now) and comes in four different colors. It fits my iPhone 7 perfectly and has just enough space for some credit cards, a chapstick, my keys and maybe one more thing. Perfect replacement when I am not carrying the diaper bag around. Did I mention it’s only $15!! Oh yeah, I did.

I just started buying a new Halloween book each year and I love adding to our collection. This year I’m going to add Popcorn by Frank Asch because it’s only $4.63 for the hardcover copy! This book is an oldie, but a goodie and is so much fun! The little bear Sam’s parents leave to go to a Halloween party so he decides to have his own bash. All of his friends bring popcorn kernels and they pop every last one….which fills the entire house and they have to figure out how to get rid of all of the popcorn before his parents get home! My kids LOVE this book and will be so happy that we finally own a copy and don’t have to wait for it to be available at the library!
