Weekly Round Up


Monday I went to town and checked out the brand new Target! I was a little disappointed, it didn't have the same selection as the one in the City, plus it was crazy  which I guess is to be expected, it's not too often a new store opens around here. I didn't buy anything in Target but I couldn't resist treating myself to a Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks. I am super excited that since the arrival of Target I now have a Starbucks closer than 5 hours away. Not that I will be making frequent visits there because, well, I'm cheap. 

I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet...I really need to get on that next week. Especially the 2 or 3 gifts that need to be mailed. And as a side note why is mailing things so damn expensive? Buying said gifts would be a lot easier if I didn't have to factor in the weight and size of the gift. Last Christmas I bought a beautiful ornament and ended up paying over $20 to mail it by the time I wrapped the thing in bubble wrap so it wouldn't get broken. Why hasn't science come up with a way to teleport material items? 

I came across this on Pinterest this week and laughed for a solid five minutes before sharing it with all of my camp staff friends. It's ridiculously accurate. 

I had this grand plan to make my own "Blog Binder" but after numerous attempts I've accepted that it is much easier for me to just invest in a pen & paper planner. Now I just need to find one that meets all my requirements and is $10 or less. That will be on the to-do list for next week!

This just made me smile. 


  1. I laughed so hard at the camp thing. It's so true.

  2. Blog binder? Huh. I'll have to look into this concept.

    I must say, I giggled at the Target thing. Minnesota is home to Target. As a matter of fact, I'm about 6 city blocks away from the headquarters as I type. I <3 Target. The only downfall? You can't go in there expecting to just grab a birthday card or something. You always walk out with a couple of bags full!

    Enjoy your weekend!!

  3. My BFF moved to South Korea this summer. I bought a little present for her and her son but when I went to mail it the postage was more than double what I paid for the present. Now she's just getting a card - I just can't justify sending it. :-(

  4. Blog binders never worked for me, I had to go with a paper planner. So much better! I'll be sharing some tips next wednesday about it! Have you seen the week date? It's great for blogging! (more than $10 though)

  5. aww...that last pic just made me smile too. love it! happy weekend, love!!! xx

  6. I loveeee caramel brulee lattes!!! Good choice! :)

  7. Oh I've finished all my Christmas shopping, and my overseas cards have been posted! I love this time of year but leaving present shopping till mid-December and being amongst all those crazy shoppers terrifies me!!
