That's what I did this morning when I went to Target. I woke up like it was Christmas morning and marched to my computer to see what goods were available online. EPIC fail. Everything I wanted was out of stock. It was 7am. Good gracious; this was going to take a little more work.
By 8:15am, half decaf coffee in hand, I braved the mini-van and SUV filled Target parking lot and ran into Target. I wasn't expecting the mobs of soccer moms that I was about to run into. I grabbed a cart and took it to the home department, only to find that my one "MUST" item was gone right before my eyes. Someone else was buying TWO of those gorgeous throws for their beach house. I just wanted one for the nursery. Was that too much to ask for?
After that heart break, it was on. I was more motivated than ever. Baby clothes? Got em. Trays for entertaining? Tumblers for cocktails? PJs? Robes? Sweaters and dresses and zig zag lounge pants. Make-up cases and headbands? I grabbed them all. Then I started editing when I looked like every other crazy woman that I was overloaded with this Italian goodness. I decided I needed it all. And then I went to check out. The lady in front of me spent $2400 dividing it on three credit cards. The one in front of her...$6000. This was out of control.
I'm having a baby. We need a new vacuum cleaner. My husband needs new suits. Do I really need all of this? I had to have a quick "come to Jesus" with myself to bring it back to reality. And I'm proud to say that I did. I bought the pieces that I really loved, and moved on without regret.
What about you? Were you in Target this morning? If so, what goodies did you score?
