I Don't Know How ABC News Missed This Bulletin!


Yesterday at Target (not the first stop on the shopping tour of doom, but definitely the last), not only did we find a modest and lovely dress, but there were actually an assortment of modest and lovely dresses to CHOOSE from. And some of them were ON SALE!
Run, people, don't walk.


We did end the evening like this, so apparently someone wasted a pretty long afternoon of dreading. Shoulda saved it for another time I guess.


In other news---

Here's my week in review:

It's finally winter here!


Is anyone else highly disturbed by the turn the Biggest Loser has taken?

(PS - This Amy button is the first flair I've ever made myself!!)

I think these are self explanatory




Yeah, these, too.





And finally a quick acknowledgment:

Love the flair, and so happy you found a suitable dress! :)

Yvonne said...

Hey, first!!!

I love Target--wish they would come to Canada. Glad you were successful.

I'm SO ANNOYED with Heba and Vicky. I thought Amy was very smart last week.

Yvonne said...

I WAS FIRST--if I had not written such a long comment ; ((((((

Sue Q said...

Yay for Target!! Or, as we like to call it, Tar-zhey. Makes us all feel more fashionable. Or French.

And I've been listening to Christmas music for a week now.

beckers said...

YAY for the dress!!! (and the well-deserved brownies!)

nevadanista said...

Amen on how to get a child's attention and chore-play :D

And ditto the yays for Target!

Becky said...

Yay, Target!

And I want the Calvin and Hobbes button!

the MomBabe said...

Aww, you DO annoy me, how'd you know? (I kid!)

Miranda said...

Happy Friday...I needed a laugh...and found you. Thanks!

LisAway said...

We're allowed to play Christmas music on the day of the first snowfall and after that it starts the day after Christmas.

So the answer to that red button is yes. (but only for one day)

Jan said...

It took my breath away on chore play. If my husband would only know how much more rewarding his life would be if he attempted more of this ;)

I LOVE Target!!!

And the flair is, as always, hiLARious!!

Lauren said...

That Guitar Hero one is like the story of my life. My hands are so small!
I am totally going to Target now!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

I used to call Target Tar-Ghetto, but these last few years I have totally changed my mind and started calling it TAHR-ZSHAYE. So I am happy you checked it out during your search for an appropriate dress and found one.

And at the risk of sounding like a broken record: I love your buttons!

As for Christmas music, sorry, I'm right-wing on that---wait till after Thanksgiving :-)

joanna said...

Cute, cute dress.

The day after Halloween, there were Christmas trees up in Wal-Mart, and Christmas music. . .
I'm not sure what to say about that.

Jennifer B. said...

Just found your blog--love it!

Melissa said...

What? Didn't you hear me squeal with joy when they read Amy's vote? I hope Vicki or Heba are next - axis of evil indeed! :)

Stacey said...

Like Sue q,I call Target Tar-zhey. It makes me feel all fancy-like.

Yay for finding a dress! That is awesome!

Chore-play makes me hawt.

As usual,I love the flair. :D

Barbaloot said...

Those are some of my favorite buttons ever! Especially the Biggest Loser ones:) Down with Vicki!

Amy Peterson said...

Apparently I need to caught up on The Biggest Loser- sounds like I'm missing all the good stuff! I heart Target! And for sure I love chore-play!!

mormonhermitmom said...

LOLOLOLOL Stop it, you're making my ribs hurt! So if your husband goes shopping with you, is that Tar-zhay chore-play?

Heather said...

I'm so glad you brought up biggest loser... I was so MAD, vicky is like a serious nut job!! I totally can't wait for next week.

aurora said...

Love the dress! super cute.
A really funny email went around a while ago it was men doing housework- way hott! ;-)

No Cool Story said...

Target = cute, modest dresses WHAT?!

First of all I want to thank Father Al for making the oh-so-happy moment popssible.
Second, I want to thank you for letting me know.
Third. Bacon.
Fourth, "My pinky is incapable of reaching the orange button." HA!! Indeed.

Queen of Everything said...

I love the flair! Too cute. I have no idea what the ABC news header means, but I had fun lurking around your blog anyways! Is your flair available for "borrowing?"

Jillybean said...

It's Tarzhay here too.

And we've been listening to Christmas music since the first of November.

Mikelle said...

Phew! That was a close one! (I guess I should explain.) I opened your blog on google reader, fully expecting to see "Friday Flair!" but it wasn't there! I was really worried there for a minute. It's like an addiction or something. :)

And congrats on your first flair! I don't watch The Biggest Loser so I'm not sure what it's all about, but it looks great! How do you make them? And I still haven't been able to find those buttons on Facebook.

Also, in google reader, only the first few lines of your posts show up, which forces me to come here instead of being lazy and reading it g.r. And I like it! (It leads to more comments.) Can you tell me how you do that?

(Sorry for the A.D.D. comment!)

Melissa Bastow said...

Guitar Hero - WHOOOOOOOOO! I was actually going to go play that tonight.....I think I'll go now....

Erin said...

I love, love, love the buttons! Where do you get these? Is it ok to "borrow" some of them to post?

taturner said...

"Chore-play" wins my vote!

Heidi Ashworth said...

I gotta have the guitar hero one!

Nancy Face said...

That dress is so pretty...HALLELUJIA! And I love the flair! :)

Nancy Face said...

We found Lauren's bridesmaid dresses at Target dot com. They needed shrugs for modesty, but they were reasonably priced and so darn cute! :)
