When You Send C to Target...

Yesterday J discovered that we were almost out of diapers, so he asked me to run to Target sometime today to pick some up. He really should have known what he was getting himself into at that point, but alas he didn't remember the Cardinal Rule of Target. Namely, Do Not Send C There By Herself Or You Will Live To Regret It.

But I get ahead of myself.

So, there I was, Luke by my side, and the entirety of Target in front of me. I like Target. In fact, I'll go as far as to say that I love Target just a little bit. So much stuff! Such reasonable prices!

Diapers, right. I needed diapers. Oh, and Stage 2 nipples for Luke's bottles since we're hoping that a faster flow will help end Bottle Strike: 2007.

(is it me or am I giving a lot of things proper names in this post?)

Diapers and bottle nipples, check!

But the baby section was tantalizingly close to the Halloween section, and it wouldn't hurt to check out the deals, would it? No, indeed it would not. And, in fact, I found some great ones!

This t-shirt--only $5!

This wreath, 50% off!

CANDY! It's Halloween and we need CANDY!

Oh, and a festive felt bucket to put the candy in!

But really, I shouldn't buy anything else.

Or should I???

"The Office" stuff! They have I (heart) Jim notepads! Magnets! Just fifty cents!

(And yes, I do plan to use the I (heart) Jim notepads for my hall passes when I go back. So there, boring post-it note people!)

MOVIES! J was just saying the other day that he wanted Transformers and the latest season of "Scrubs"!

(please note, I was a cool wife and bought the version of Transformers with a box that actually is a Transformer. Best Wife Ever.)

Needless to say, by the time I was done there was barely any room for the baby in my cart, much less any other random Target merchandise. Thus I checked out, crammed everything into my trunk somehow, and ended up at home on Halloween night taking pictures of my Target purchases.

Luke is not impressed by Target, but Daddy is pretty happy about his movies.

I got sucked into the office stuff, too!

There were quite a few exclamation points in your post! :) Looks like you had a fun time. Wish there were some stores like that here!! :)
