Oh Joy For Target

I can't believe I haven't talked about this before but I love the Oh Joy for Target line. Like I've said before Joy is one of my fave bloggers. She has really nice style and her blog is very interesting. So once she announced her collaboration with Target I couldn't wait.  

I feel Joy was very smart and creative with this collection because not only did she make products that are new but she made items that you can also keep. Everything isn't disposable which is a good thing. So here are a few items I really like. 





Let me just say I love these straws. My daughter loves to use straws so I thought the bright colors would be a fun change. I really love the material. I know that may sound weird but it's like a hard plastic. They can't bend. As soon as they go on clearance I'm buying all of them. 





This was the first item on my to buy list. I like this because you can use it more than once. Plus it will look cute on cakes and cupcakes. Guess what? You can also spell out YAHOO if you like. 






How cute is this? This is what I mean about the collection being so new and creative. Who would've thought printed trash bags? It's funny because you always end up doing a trash run at parties. At least now it won't be so awkward when you have to take out the trash. 




I have lots more to share from this collection that I purchased but it's a surprise. No worries I promise to have pix. In the mean time check out everything from Oh Joy for Target. There are only a few more weeks left.

Pregnancy story part 1 I'm pregnant

                                                

*yes that is a pregnancy test and this post may have some tmi moments

It's been three months since I've had my baby and we are in a good place. We have a nice system going. So I thought it was time to share my pregnancy and birth stories. 

So yeah that is my pregnancy test I took. I don't have it but I'm sure you're wondering why I took a pic of it. Well last May is when I found out I was pregnant and I was completely shocked. I actually didn't think my husband would believe me. Not that he thinks I'm a liar but we play around a lot and I thought he may have thought I was joking. 

So the thing with my cycle is that it starts on the same numerical day every month. If it doesn't start that particular day then it starts the next day. I'm serious every single month. So the day of my cycle came and it didn't start. Okay, so I knew it would start the next day. Yep you guessed it. It didn't so I automatically knew what was coming next. 

I then asked my husband if he thought I could be pregnant and of course he said No. Now May was an extremely busy month for me. 
My brother was graduating from college
It was my mom birthday
Mother's Day
The Great Gatsby was coming out
Basketball playoffs

I was busy every weekend. Since I was always doing something I wasn't worried about how tired I was. Then it happened. Just like all of my pregnancies my breast became rock hard. So just like that I knew I was pregnant. I went to Target (where else would I go) bought a pregnancy test. Took it in the family rest room. Yes, I had my daughter with me and I couldn't wait to go home. And it was positive. 

*next up...my thoughts on my actual pregnancy

Isn't this cute?



Sometimes I come across something so cute and I want it but then the price...The Price! So this brass color pencil set is super cute. Do I need it? No. Especially at $75 I'll have to pass. Now I have found it low as $58 but the shipping is so expensive it's still a little too much. Are there any items you want but don't need because it's overpriced?

I love you



This picture is pretty popular on the internet. I found it on Tumblr maybe a year ago and had to have it. I actually went through so many links and found the Interior designer of the room. But what? The print is $400, so you know what my first thought was. I CAN MAKE THIS. The artwork looks handwritten anyway so I'm sure I can recreate it. 

So this is my next diy project. It's going to go in my bedroom. I'm just trying to decide if I want to put it on canvas or just frame it. Since I like frames a little more I'm kinda leaning towards framing it. Anyway to be continued...
