Tales from the Target dressing room

Here are a few of the snaps I just dug up from Target trips past.

Trying on clothes after having Maddie. HAHAHA SO BAD.
Summer 2012, back when Jack was always a blur. TBH I think I just wanted to show Instagram my hair that day.
Oh look, they’re both blurs. Always wiggling, what a surprise! I love how he’s not even wearing shoes.
Ahhh, this was an after-movie Target trip meltdown. I was newly pregnant with baby Ruth too! Okay, these memories got me like :,(
Later in 2014, now with even more baby!
Hiiiieeee! This was today. I think this may be Ruthie’s first ever appearance in a dressing room photoshoot! Welcome to the club, Ruthie!

This last photo is supes bad quality, but can you still see little Roo-boo in her jammies? No shame, man. She’s actually still in them and I’m writing this at 2pm.

So I just looked back through a few years of blog posts to find these old things. I searched “Target” to narrow down my posts and it came back with 63 pages of results. SIXTY THREE PAGES. I knew I was eventually going to have to face the 3x a week Target run issue at some point, but dang, that’s a lot of mentions.

It’s obvious I love the place. For some reason, it just feels like it’s the easiest store to take kids… I’m sure that’s all in my head, but I love that it’s a one-stop-shop! Not to mention, all the amazing things you can get for $1.00 – $3.00 that you absolutely don’t need but you also do absolutely need and now they put a Starbucks at the entrance and ALL THE CANDLES and and… it just feels like home away from home. Now that I’m thinking about it, Ruthie even tells me when she wants to go smell the candles. She points to the ones she wants to smell and goes, “mmmm!” Okay, if my 1.5 year old knows where the candle aisle is and how to sample the stinkin’ things, I think it’s safe to say I haz problem.

Introspection aside, I will never ever stop taking these photos. I quite like having these silly memories to look back on every now and then. :D

  1. I feel ya on the Target love. My 4 year old will often reply “Target?!” when we ask her if she wants to go somewhere fun.


  2. So I started following your blog when I was pregnant with my first and you were chronicling your pregnancy with Maddie. Obviously you haven’t been blogging as much lately and I haven’t kept up as well, but I feel like maybe we totally had matching (somewhat) pregnancies. I had my son in Oct 2008, daughter in Nov 2010 and twins (surprise!) in August 2014. Are we close? If so, that’s really crazy because you are literally the only blog from that time (bloggers about the same amount of pregnant that I was) that I am still subscribed to! Glad you’re still writing… I think you’re hilarious and I’m glad you’re figuring out what you want to do with your blog and doing it for you because you want to. Yeah!

  3. I’m afraid to search Target in my history, ha. I love it so much it’s ridiculous. Also I’m so impressed you try things on with the kiddos. I always just grab, try it on at home and if it doesn’t fit then return it, ha. Not as efficient but less terrifying that my child will ruin it in the store and I’ll be stuck with it.
