Weekend Finds

I don’t know about you, but I have a serious love/hate relationship with Target. I always walk out spending way more than I anticipate. We only had a few items on our list, but I fell in love with so many things (like always). To make matters even worse the only thing we really needed was toilet paper – and guess what we forgot? Typical. I got so distracted with all of their home items that toilet paper was apparently the last thing on my mind. I did have a little self control this weekend, but I had to have this blanket in orange. It’s technically bedding, but I am using it as an over-sized throw instead. I stood there debating which color(s) to buy for probably 20 minutes. If they were smaller/cheaper I probably would’ve bought two, maybe even three.

Of course I couldn’t leave without buying myself one more thing. While walking to the cash register we passed by the book section. I immediately saw this book and had to have it.

First because it was bright pink, and second because it was Jillian Michaels. I have a huge obsession with her, and cannot wait to read this book! I have high hopes that it will change the way I eat, work-out, and live. I’ll let you know what I think after I finish.

Evan and I also took a trip to Home Depot yesterday for a couple things. I have been complaining for awhile now that our water is just completely killing my skin. I have eczema already so having really hard Chicago water was making it worse. We bought a filter for our shower that is supposed to help take out the chlorine and other harmful chemicals that have been drying out my skin. We also bought a new shower head because I’m pretty sure the one our landlords bought was the cheapest one at the store. After one shower I can happily say I can already tell a difference. Yay!

One thing I decided to pick-up while we were there was a new house plant. We bought some awhile back (mentioned here), and have managed to keep 2 of the 3 alive. Poor little flowers didn’t quite make it very long so I wanted to pick up a replacement. It’s a little $6 plant so hopefully I won’t kill it that fast.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
