Happy Friday! 
I have a few hours of work this morning, then it’s time to run a couple errands and pack everything up for our camping trip this weekend! We’ll be meeting my sister and her crew later this evening at the campsite – I’m excited for a fun weekend of being unplugged and enjoying time with family.
I was at Target yesterday and it was one of those times where they had all the things. Nearly every aisle I walked down, I saw something I wanted. It was a Target I hadn’t been to before, so maybe it was all just the excitement of walking through a new store? Nobody knows. BUT, I did get a couple good things that I wanted to share with you because the kind of person who finds great thing at Target and doesn’t tell everyone they know is not the kind of person I want to be. 
Most noteworthy, in my opinion, were the sneakers I found that are not available online (😒). I’m thinking they’re an older style, since they didn’t have a ton in stock, but they may have them in your local store. I don’t want to oversell, but they are hands down the most comfortable shoes I’ve put on my feet ever. Ever. Basically like walking on clouds. They’re so, so similar to these sneakers I’ve seen around. In fact, since I know they’re so great, I’m considering buying these blush ones because blush  sneakers. So, go check your local Target and thank me later. 
Other things worth noting: these ankle rain boots, this perfect pajama set, this hooded car coat, and this ridiculously soft blanket (which I may have to go back for). 
I finally got our wedding photos printed and up on the wall! Did you see the whole thing on my Instagram stories – it was quite the ordeal. It ended up taking probably 4 hours total to get it all done, which I don’t think is too bad. I’ve received quite a few requests to share my method for doing a 4×4 grid of 16×20 frames, so I’m going to share some tips next week on how I did it all. I’m so happy with how it turned out
I’m about 18 chapters into this book and really enjoying it, if you need a new read!
I’m in full-on Holiday Planning mode for Elisabeth Ashlie and so excited! It’s going to be a good year to shop for gifts with EA, trust me 😏
Hope you have a great weekend!

    I totally have those sneakers. Before my Alaska trip, I bought and returned a few pair of Nike sneakers. Just wanted something for comfort and not exercise. Well, they just weren't all that comfortable and Nikes always wear out on me. I bought the Target ones based on online reviews. A nurse said she wears them to work all day every day and came back for a second pair. Now I'm regretting not getting a second pair because they are SO COMFORTABLE! I did wear them to the gym last night for a weights class and they were great. Not sure I'd run or long walk in them because I need a bit more sturdy.
