A Trip to Target & an Award

So I went to Target the other evening after class for 5min... riiigghhtt. 5min quickly turned into an hour. But it was a very productive trip. I got some fun un-needed Christmas things. A t-shirt to torture my puppy with :) Plus, two new toys to buy my nieces love with. I can't decide if I am saving the bigger one for part of Anna's Christmas present....
In any event I took pictures so you can share in the fun!!!!
My 5yr old neice was a big fan of paint your own pottery + making a mess. Perfect combo! My sister did 'make your own t-shirts' with Anna the last time she babysat so I figured I needed to do a craft project with her too. I think I may need to go out and buy another kit though, cause after seeing this one for a couple days I really want to make my own dish and mug.... I miss being 5.

A Dora the Explorer bubble whistle. Apparently, my neice Bonnie loves bubbles but doesn't get the concept of blowing, she sucks the bubbles into her mouth..... I am thinking this may solve the problem. You load the back part of the whistle with the bubble solution and then just blow like a regular whistle... pretty nifty, right? I fear my sister may hate me after the next time I come over. There will be bubbles in the house plus another toy that makes noise. I do think I will need to buy another because I don't think Anna or Bonnie will be good sharers with this toy.I LOVE the dollar bins at Target. A cute jingle bell necklace for just a buck. I got 3! One for me, one for Anna, and one for Bonnie. My sister is seriously going to hate me.....
A T-Shirt for my puppy!!! I am not someone who constantly dresses up her dog (partially because she wouldn't let me) but I do like dressing her up for Halloween, parties, and Christmas. Blazer and I had a very long photo shoot with her modeling this shirt...
The 'pouty, emo, bangs in your face' pose.
Her 'ruler of the world' pose. She believes she is by the way...
She was not impressed with her mommy.

After this picture she ran outside to get away from Mommy's camera.

Well my big sister over at Diary of the Fanatic Foodie gave me an award! How sweet of her. Though, it should be noted that while she gave me an award she did also have to tease me about my blog. Just like a true big sister.So I am going to tag:
  1. Anne-Toiresa at The Devil Wears Kelly Green
  2. L,S,&M at The Daily Fax Email Blog I know they don't 'do' awards but it is a hysterically funny blog that everyone should read!
  3. Ms. Crocodile at The Preppy Pink Crocodile
And I also have to list 5 addictions....
Here goes:
  1. Starbuck's White Peppermint Mocha Latte (Heather, it also hurts me to not say venti, 140, skinny, wpm its in my DNA too...)
  2. My UGGs. So warm and cuddly...
  3. Cofee flavored ice cream
  4. Argyle sweaters! Cute, preppy, and a lilttle nerdy.... perfection
  5. Monogrammed stationary... I love it! I pretty much love anything with my monogram though. Call it the youngest child syndrome. I share nothing...
Thats all for now. I have to be at work in 9 hours... An 8 hour Saturday shift during the holiday season. Hopefully I won't kill any customers... Ciao for now!
