shop 'til you drop...

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

My Sweet Little Leighton starts Kindergarten tomorrow. I am doing everything I can think of to NOT think about it. I blinked. Tomorrow a new chapter starts. At church Sunday, we had the "Blessing of the Backpacks." I was a hot, teary mess. The moment I have to leave her in her classroom, I think my husband might have to carry me out. There are so many things I wish for her: bravery, kindness, excitement, hope. Y'all. I have to stop.

One of my favourite forms of distraction? SHOPPING!

Two of the best shopping Instagram (IG) accounts I follow?

@targetdoesitagain
@costco_doesitagain

They are both run by the same ladies. I believe they are moms that live in Southern California. I have found some of the yummiest and cutest things via their accounts.

Exhibit A:



We purchased this for Little Leighton's birthday soiree this year. It was a huge hit! It's so adorable. The kids (and adults!) loved it.


So, I haven't actually purchased these yet. BUT, I tried them on last week, after seeing this post. They are fabulous. Seriously amazing quality. They remind me of a similar (almost exact) style from "Free People." I think these will be the perfect bandaid for my heart tomorrow. Wink. Wink.

Exhibit B:



Both of these Costco finds are Certified Gluten-Free and certifiably delicious. I would recommend adding your own peanuts, cilantro and green onions to the Pad Thai. It is super easy to prepare. Perfect for busy school nights. The Heavenly Hunks? I have to hide them from myself. And ELC. I truly think they make a great, and quick, breakfast (don't judge me) or afternoon snack.

I hope y'all will check these two accounts out, especially if you love shopping at Target and Costco as much as I do.

Pray for Little Leighton tomorrow. And me. Pretty please?

TTFN.
