It's no secret that Target is one of my happy places.
In fact, if ever a 12 step program comes into existence, I might just have to join up.
No trip to Target for "a couple of things" is just that.
Can you enter the store without perusing the Dollar Spot and not grabbing a couple of things?
And then there's always a great pair of shoes at an equally great price.
How cute are these? (the picture seriously does not do them justice, but I'm sure many of you have seen them live)
I bought them over a month ago, and have yet to wear them. Fear not, I will. They're adorable.
Then there's the makeup section. I'm such a girlie-girl, and even though I don't wear a ton of makeup at one time, I've got a very large selection to choose from every morning.
Closely followed by Pink Sand (538).
Seriously, I discovered this stuff about 3 years ago, and figured that at $1.99 (at CVS, Target sells it for $1.79 - sometimes 2 for $3!) I could give it a shot and if I hated it no big deal.
This product has been my best makeup find ever! Unlike most "cheap" brands, N.Y.C. Liquid Lip Shine is the perfect texture and color, and most importantly, is never sticky or gunky.
I have turned many friends onto this awesome stuff, even those who only buy top of the line brands.
I have them stashed everywhere and am even starting to branch out and try new colors!
But I digress.
We ran into a friend at Target today, and while we were chatting, I kept getting distracted by the vision of a jet black rectangle with pale hands holding a delicious-looking perfect red apple.
Any clue where I'm going with this?
I've seen so much hype about this book over the last few months that my curiosity has been piqued.
People rave about it.
I've read and heard that no matter what you normally read, you will love this book.
As in devour it, unable to put it down once you've opened it.
Other than that, I don't know much about it - other than that it's about vampires (something I'm not interested in at all) and love, and that it is soon to be released as a major motion picture.
But alas, everywhere I go, I see this enticing book cover.
And today, that striking display kept taunting me as I tried to concentrate on my conversation with my friend.
Next thing I knew, I was searching for copywright dates to ensure that Twilight was in fact the first of the 4 Stephanie Meyer books so lusciously arrayed on the shelf.
You know, just to be sure that if I were to buy it, I'd be reading the series in the correct order.
I don't buy books.
I'm a library girl.
Love to read, and if it's free, it's for me.
I keep a list of things I want to read and just put them on reserve.
But I knew I'd be on the reserve list for the next 20 years (ok, technically, only one year, since they cancel the reserve after that, just sayin').
Before I knew it, into the cart it was tossed.
What's another $8.97 at Target?
I am super excited to sink my teeth into this one (bad pun intended) and hope it lives up to all the things I've heard.
I'm also super excited about the fact that the entire concept of the book and series is a mystery to me, so if you've read it and want to comment (and of course you know I do love comments!), please don't tell me anything about it (other than that I will absolutely love it, if that's your opinion).
If I'm not blogging, I'll be chomping on that delicious red apple.
