Trip to Target

I made a quick run to Target yesterday afternoon. I intended to be there only 5 minutes because ALL I needed was dryer sheets. I figured I had a better shot at an "in and out" experience there than at the grocery store, since the echo monster has taken up residence in the refrigerator. Incorrect.

I made the mistake of entering through the garden center. Of course. When I checked out I had in my basket:

Two hanging unusual pink and yellow petunia combo, and a stunning dark fushia-ish purple petunia basket. They were such a bargain.

Two 6 packs of dwarf snapdragons.

Two seed packets of marigolds. (Are you seeing a trend here?)

New gardening scissors. Mine have disappeared off the face of the earth.

One car (from Cars) for Devlin. (I think I enjoy collecting them for him more than
he does.)

A Christmas gift for Chloe. (Are you seeing another trend here?)

And last but not least, 2 packages of dryer sheets. Pretty expensive dryer sheets, wouldn't you say?

I think we can safely say that two of my weaknesses in life are my grandchildren and my garden. (And maybe Target!)

Speaking of grandchildren, happy birthday Zachary! I can't believe you are six!

we should be friends. my greatest weakness is also my garden and my nieces. (see also the two adorable Christmas dresses I got them from ross. love ross. love that the dresses match.)

lesson learned. avoid the garden entrance.

oh ya one more weakness for decorations.

you're light up pumpkin is adorable. where is it from?

Heh, heh. You are weak, admit it! (I am also weak.) Target brings out the compulsive shopper in all of us, I think.

I agree with the above! It was fun to see you with the wizzle at Target the other day. Next to Costco, I have a hard time getting out of there with just "the dryer sheets" that I went for. Have a great new week being out in the dirt.
