I can predict the weather with my boobs!

I posted this image on Instagram yesterday, with the following caption:

"Lunchtime saving grace"

I instantly knew that more than one person would be able to relate to this particular post.  I am constantly amazed at the number of bloggers that I have connected with over our mutual love of Tar-jay (because we like to be exotic in my house).  The bulls-eye is the most addictive little store ever.  I worked there for a semester in college.  During that semester, Tar-jay introduced the dollar spot.  And this was back when everything in the dollar spot really was just a dollar.  Needless to say, that paycheck never went too far.  I did get really good at buying on clearance though, and that skill has carried me through life quite well.

Since that time though, Tar-jay has become a place full of pretty things for me.  I don't buy most things there, because that would be far too dangerous.  I go there when I need to find peace, and look at pretty things.  Let's face it; there is nothing more exciting than walking into target and seeing all of that cheerful red everywhere.

I totally went overboard yesterday.  I got Ammon and I pajama pants, envelope seals for our
Christmas cards, a red glittery snowflake tree topper, and a box of candy canes for work.

Yes, a box just for work.  Remember, candy canes are my favorite winter candy.  And so, when I arrived at work, I delivered this quote (while opening the box of candy canes):

And you know what?  It took me saying it more than once for them to get it!  If you don't know this one right off, I am sad for you.  Really, I am.  But because I'm really nice, I will educate you on everyone's favorite movie to quote.

This was absolutely one of my top 5 favorite movies in college.  Mostly because there were moments that look exactly like being in a sorority.  I'm not going to tell you which ones, though.  You have to guess.

What is your most recent Target story?  Is there one movie you find yourself quoting over and over?


  1. I seriously LOL'd at the title! I <3 mean girls. There are a ton of movies we quote but What Happens In Vegas is always the winner "we will hire my brothers sketchy friends and when he opens the door they'll punch him RIGHT IN HIS MAN BUSINESS, and when he asks why they'll just say YOU KNOW WHY! Bahahaha gets me every time.

  2. Ok, I suck. Because I don't understand the title nor do I compute these two movie quotes. I'm the worst kind of friend ever.... we can't even have a mutual TV/Movie love affair...

  3. You got pajama pants?! I'm so proud! I used my Target envelope seals last night and they brought me great joy.

    I'm horrified that your coworkers didn't know that quote. HORRIFIED. But then again, I know mine wouldn't know it either. Shame.

  4. LOVE that movie. I find myself quoting it often. I don't even want to get into my love for Target. It's ridiculous how often I go and spend!

  5. Mean Girls is AWESOME. And so is Target. Man I spend WAY too much money there.

  6. There are MANY movies that I quote a lot. My Cousin Vinny, 10 things I hate about you, Can't hardly wait...

    I haven't been in a target in a long time...they're different here in Australia.


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
