My Latest Target Find & A Mini Sunday Funday!

Target is one of my favorite places.  Really, I can spend hours there at a time.  They have everything at great prices and quality.  I've been buying these ITSO Fabric Bins from there for my closet.  They look great, and only cost $9 each!  The fabric is sturdy and the size is just right to store my purses and other knick knacks in the closet.  They make my closet look so much more organized.  I put them on the top shelf of my closet, so everything is hidden away!  I now have 6 of them in brown and tan alternating colors.  Here's what the brown one looks like.

They don't come with a top lid, but there is a hard piece on the bottom that you put on the inside to reinforce it.  I don't need a lid, especially since I put them on top of the closet shelf so walking in there you can't see at all what's in them.  One of these bins can store up to 5 purses!  I also was able to put 3 gym bags in one as well.  It's great and I'm glad I didn't have to spend a fortune.  It's amazing that something as simple as this makes me so happy!  I used to throw all my purses and whatnot on the top shelf, and every time I walked into my closet I would feel so crammed and messy.  Not anymore!

I also got a few picture frames from Target.  Big one is 14 X 18 for a 8 X 10 picture, and small one is 11 X 14 for a 5 X 7 picture.  The big one is only $19 and small one is only $16.  They look great!  They have black wood frame, with white mat.  Very simple and modern looking.  Finally we can frame some pictures and start adding stuff to our walls.  It's been an extremely slow process.  Here's the 4 I have.  Can't wait to hang them up!

Ok now, I have to confess that I did not workout much this week.  I had a lot going on, such as engagement picture session one night, my mom came into town a couple nights, and one night I had to go to the dentist after work to pick up my night guard then got stuck in traffic.  Then Friday night I was just exhausted and stayed in and did nothing.  Oh well, this happens sometimes I guess. 

So yesterday I got my butt up and went to Bob Harper's spin class.  My friend actually called me to wake me up as he was standing in line to sign up for class an hour before it started.  Otherwise I wouldn't have made that one either!  I figure that class somewhat made up for the lack of exercising all week.  Hehe.  It was a brutal class!  I think maybe since it was so hot at almost 90 degrees out, and AC was not adequate in class, I felt like fainting at one point!  But I literally was drenched in sweat within the first 5 minutes, and I didn't even warm up on the treadmill beforehand.  I wore my No Limit tank in coal/lavender and black Run Fast short.  Sorry forgot to take pic.  I don't normally wear shorts to spin because I hate having my sweaty legs touch the saddle.  But it was so hot out and Bob doesn't really let you sit in the saddle anyways so it turned out to be a good decision.  It was still a trip to take his class since I had just watched the New Zealand Biggest Loser episode the night before, and I told him as much!  I'm just glad he was yelling at my friend throughout the whole class instead of me.  Lol.

Today I totally slept in and did not get up until 11:30.  Hehehe.  So my fiance and I decided to just go lift weights at the gym.  I ran a mile to warm up, then did the gauntlet for about 10 minutes, then did another mile consisting of 3 sprints on the treadmill before lifting.  We did 5 different weight machines for a total body workout, then did some balls, TRX, and ropes.  So basically the whole works.  I tried out my new Lululemon 50 Rep Bra, and loved it!!!  This may be my new fav, though I have not tried out the Energy Bra yet.  The 50 Rep Bra was so comfortable and supportive at the same time!  I think it's more supportive than my Flow Ys.  And it looked cute with my Bubbulicious Cool Racerback!  

The straps show a little on the back with the Cool Racerback, but I don't mind that at all.  I like that this bra fits well in the back too.  It doesn't pinch the skin and give the illusion of back fat under the tank.  That's always a big pet peeve of mine. 

Oh yeah, check this out.  This whole outfit was complete with my workout gloves, which also went with my Hello Kitty nails!  LOL! 

By the way, I went to Coffee Bean after the gym today - another one of my favorite places!  I think it beats Starbucks out the water.  And noticed this...


Hmmm on my way home I also saw this fake palm tree radio tower/ satellite thingy.  How cool!

Hahaha... Ok I must be bored.  Sorry for the random bits!  I just thought they were funny!  I think I am easily amused.


  1. Hahaha. This is the arkansas version ;)

    & OMG i love target. Everyone out here prononces it "Tar-zhey" like it's all upscale. Targette? :P

  2. Oh I like the Arkansas version too! Cute! I really never knew that they decorated these things.. hehehe.

    I know people here that pronounce it like that too. I do say it from time to time but more as a joke. I wonder where it came from!

  3. Those are great gloves -- I had the same pair and they lasted over 2 years with near daily use.
