My Happy Place

Today I wanted to blog about something that is near and dear to my heart....Target. I go to Target at least once a week, I think it's some sort of sickness. It is for sure my happy place.

Nothing better than walking in and smelling the stale Target popcorn and heading straight to the dollar section before you make your ritual loop around the store (everyone has a route, mine starts at the house ware aisles and ends at the clothing).

I don't know why I'm so drawn to this place but I know I'm not alone.
Maybe it's because I have fond memories like finding the perfect bathing suit on clearance, or the time my best friends water broke in the greeting card aisle.

I've become such a Target pro that I have some little tips for everyone... You can thank me later.

Anyone else love Target as much as I do?


  1. Yes I also have a Target weakness!

  2. IM WITH YOU!!!! :P its an ADDICTION!! ;) :P 10 minutes away from one doesnt help my case ;P

  3. Just found your blog and love it!

    I too, am a Target addict. I could browse through that store for hours!
    And I never thought of how that stale popcorn smell does really reel you in ha ha :)

  4. @ Elisha: I live down the street from a Walmart but I'll still drive down the freeway to Target. It's so much better!

    @Nikole: Thanks for reading! :) I don't think I've ever seen anyone eating the popcorn now that I think about it!

  5. Hi Jenna,

    Found you on GDS. Where in SoCal do you live? I'm a SoCal girl myself....Redondo Beach :)


  6. I feel exactly the same way. I always go to target at least once (sometimes twice) a week. It always seems like I go just for one thing and then come out with 20 haha.

  7. @Emily: Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Right now we are living in Lake Elsinore, but we moved here from Long Beach. I love Redondo!

    @Chelsie: I'm so bad about that too! Even if I'm just going to window shop I'll come out with something thats usually totally unnecessary!

  8. Yuppers I love Target. It's such a nice treat to go after every doc appointment! I love their khaki pants!

  9. I love Target too! That place is amazing. I have never been disappointed from anything that I have bought there; whether it be clothing, shoes, bed sheets and even towels. Perfection.

    Thanks so much for posting this little guide.

    P.S. I love the photo of you in that Smiths shirt. :)

  10. @ Amanda: I totally agree.. I feel like a kid going to a toy store after getting a shot!

    @ Danielle: I know right!? Everything is pretty much quality and they're super quick on the trends for that type of store. And thanks! That was taken on my wedding day. Had to represent ! :)
