Favorite Things Party - Target Edition



It's Favorite Things Party Day! WOO HOO!!  Honestly, I almost forgot about it - and then my trip to Target got canceled due to freezing rain (and a nap), but it all worked out - because I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Target website and found some great stuff :)

So last week I posted this pictures about my Sid Dickens blocks asking for advice on where I should put another row/column or whether I should start a new wall.  The overwhelming response was another low on the bottom... which I loved, but makes me nervous with expensive memory blocks and little hands (and bouncing balls, flying frisbees and other shenanigans going on).  I decided to start a new wall, and started looking for the perfect spot.


Ultimately, I decided on the wall above this tall dresser in our bedroom.   You see it right when you walk in and I think they'll look really pretty.  BUT I didn't love the look of the tiles with our current duvet cover...


So this led to a bedroom "mini makeover". hahaha 
Welcome to inside my brain, friends :)

We're not ready to get new furniture right now (I still really like ours) and I'm not willing to paint - because that would mean painting our adjoining office and bathroom.  Ugh.  So for right now I'm dealing with the border and considering removing or painting over it this summer. 

Anyway, back to the mini makeover.  I ordered this duvet cover and shams from Pottery Barn last week and snagged some white sheets for a STEAL on HauteLook as well.  I'm thinking that the solid duvet will be an easy change and will give me a little more freedom with accessories and rugs and such.


 I am a pillow-a-holic and Target is NOT disappointing right now.  



And I'm loving all three of these mixed in with the floral.


I want to update the lamps on our nightstands and am HOOKED on mercury glass. This mercury glass lamp is awesome, but I think it's going to be too short for bedside.  I do think it would be great on the tall dresser (the one I'm putting the memory blocks above).




I'm wanting to move our bed and night stands over to the right (when you're facing the bed) and put a chair in the corner.  I am LOVING this one!  With one of the fun pillows from above on it and a throw draped over the back.



And above the chair, I'm thinking of hanging three frames like this one vertically.  I have plans to fill them with some fabulous black and white pictures from our amazing photographer :)


Right now we have an iron piece above our bed, which I don't mind, but I also wouldn't mind having two (or three) of these in it's place :) hahaha
In other Target news...

I'm pretty sure this super cute weekend bag would be the perfect bag to tote along when I chaperone the 8th grade trip to NASA in a couple weeks.  It seems like it would have enough room for all my chaperoning essentials... .like my own pillow, ibuprofen and a sense of humor :) hahaha



And since we're talking about chaperoning, I'll more than likely be bringing this $10 nailpolish set so we can do manis in the hotel at midnight.  Because when in Rome :)





Back tomorrow with the weekend recap and then don't forget to mark your calendar for next months favorite things party when we share about your favorite polish!  We're having an "ice day" today, so while you're reading this I'm probably either cleaning up a meal, or making a meal/snack... because when they're home it seems like they eat CONSTANTLY. hahaha

One last thing - y'all need to head over to Sheaffer's blog today because she's doing her Special Mama giveaway again!  This time she's giving away a $1000 gift card to an extra special mama of a child with special needs.  Head over there to nominate your friends and family members!



Happy Monday, Friends!!!

  11. Love that duvet set! We are in need of a bedroom update, but we are possibly moving at the beginning of the summer so I guess updates will have to wait. And those chairs are awesome! I think I will take one of every one of those pillows!

  18. I wouldn't paint over that border if it's a paper type border. My sister did that in her old house and it looked really bad. She ended up taking it off and repainting.

  20. Goodness sakes. That bag is amazing! I am going to have to get one because it is perfect for everything! And yes, it would be prefect for your chaperoning trip!! I am in love.

  21. I have those yellow pillows!! You're so right though...a neutral bedspread will do wonders for redecorating! And that one looks so comfy:) I wish I would've gone neutral on my walls because they are BRIGHT and that limits my choices a bit;)
