Recently I’ve seen this going around Pinterest:
And I couldn’t help but wholeheartedly agree. I <3 Targets. I go there almost every week, truth is I don’t always go there with a purpose and B knows that and always tells me that for every item that comes in something must go out. So instead I hide the bags in my trunk and wait until he’s not looking to bring everything in. I’m not the only one who does this right!?
I love that it’s a one stop shop, everything I need is right there to make summer fun, from decor to water guns! One of my favorite departments in Target is Kitchenware. I always love to see the seasonal dinnerware that they come out with and of course the clearance department. I’m still think about a pair of measuring spoons that I should have gotten that were a steal. I’ll never make that mistake again 😉
I love the summer line that they have out now particularly the Summer Strawberry Dinnerware! Mason LOVES strawberries so I knew it would be a hit with him and sure enough it was! I particularly love the cups. There nice and tall and perfect for making Iced Coffee. Spiked Iced Coffee that is! And oh my did I need some spiked coffee the day we busted out the dinnerware set from target for the first time. We invited our neighbors over who have three children and of course there was Mason. They were constantly running off fighting with each other etc. We could barely get them to eat and I made some delicious pasta salad that I stored in the Blue Serving Bowl with Bamboo lid.
I LOVED the bamboo lid because it protects the bugs AND makes it easy to store leftovers! No extra dishes that way! And I got Mason to eat it by putting it on his strawberry plate
The bowl and plate are both holding my yummy no mayo Pasta Salad.
The best thing about every piece of this dinnerware? Okay two best things. 1) They’re Melamine so they’re durable which makes them great for parties and 2) They’re dishwasher safe so clean up is a breeze! Which makes enjoying my Spiked Iced Coffee that much easier.
Spiked Iced Coffee is my ULTIMATE Mommy needs a break drink. It kills two birds with one stone. Energy and relaxation. And it’s so refreshing!
Step 1: Fill the glass with Ice
Step 2: Add 4oz of Whipped Vodka
Step 3: Add coffee until there is about an inch and a half of space left
Step 4: Add creamer flavor of your choice (Hazelnut or French Vanilla are my go-tos)
Step 5: Stir it up, sit outside and pretend the kids aren’t fighting
Spiked Iced Coffee is SUPER easy to make and always makes a not so great day better!
Another thing to Enjoy? Summer at Target. It’s always good for a mood lifter especially with all the fun Summer colors.
