Can't get enough

I have to check in to buying stock shares in Target. I'm seriously there once at day (at least) on the weekends. 

And now that we are moving, I can't help but spend money on stuff for the new house. 

Thank god for clearance. 

These are perfect for my new kitchen. I love decals, and I LOVE wine!  Seriously the one thing I will miss about the current house is the wine rack built into our kitchen cabinets. And hello! Clearanced!!

Please don't tell my husband, he may take my redcard away. 

Who am I kidding, he would never do that!

Well It's About Damn Time!

Holy shit y'all!  After 7 years of asking and showing him properties, and asking some more, more properties being shown to him...WE ARE FINALLY MOVING!  

Say good bye to my 750 square foot ranch house (well, see ya later, because we are renting it out when we move)!  Hell-ooooooo 1100 square foot cape cod of my dreams. 

I'm not sharing pictures of it yet, since we haven't closed on it. We have to wait until June for that. But I do have some stuff figured out already. 

It's in great shape already, so all I have to do before moving in is clean the carpet in the master and paint. Oh em gee! I love to paint rooms. So I have paint colors picked out from Lowes already. 

The princess has requested a white room with pink and purple hearts, so I found some decals on Amazon for $15 shipped. And I'm painting the kitchen, dining room and one wall in the master. 

Classical violet is going to be an accent wall in my master and Coastal Jetty is going in my dining room. The other two, Lyndhurst Celadon Green and Green Tea Leaves are going in my kitchen. They are picking up rather mint in the picture, but aren't that bright in person.  All these colors are Valspar colors. 

And the one other thing that is figured out is the princess's bathroom. We have two FULL baths in the new house!  So the downstairs bath will be kid friendly decor, but it's also our main bath when guest are over, so it's not in your face kids!  Like the Frozen set she picked out. Sorry Kiddo

How stinkin cute is that!?  I love the owls, I think it's something she can continue to grow into for a while, and it's still appropriate for a main bath. And it was all on clearance!  I think I paid $35 tops for all of it?  #targetforthewin

Can I admit something?  I've never (never) been to Ikea! *Gasp!*  But I'm going!
In May. I have a dentist appointment, and there's an ikea close by. That haul will be a completely separate blog post all on its own. I had better bring cash as a budget. Haha who am I kidding!?

Wish me luck

Door to Door Organics

The The I'm not usually an organic eater. Honestly, I think Organics are very pricey and I don't usually purchase them.  
But I had seen an add for Door to Door Organics all over my facebook news feed last month!  They were having a spring sale for new customers. 51% off any box, so long as you were new. No commitment, you could do just the one box if you wanted. So I decided to check it out. 
With the sale, I was able to get their largest mixed fruit and veggies box for $26 delivered. I can barely buy all our fruits and veggies for the week for $26, non organic!  Audrey loves (LOVES) fruits and veggies. 
It took a few days to decide to pull the trigger, but I did. They preselected items to bring to you, but you have the option to switch out things for a select few others. 
I chose to have my delivery day be Tuesday because I don't usually work then. That way I can bring the box inside as soon as it's delivered. Otherwise, if you're not home any of the delivery days you can leave a cooler outside and they will put the box in the cooler for you. 
I waited all day yesterday for my box; I love deliveries. Finally as I was making dinner it arrived, just in time too. I wanted the lettuce I was getting for dinner!
I quickly opened it and found layers of goodies awaiting me!
Organic bananas, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, strawberries, two pink lady apples. 
Organic mandarins, Swiss chard, romaine lettuce, asparagus. 

Organic cameo apples, Fuji apples, avocado, garlic, grapefruit, Yukon gold potatoes, Bosc pears, and blood oranges. 
About those blood oranges. I didn't think Audrey would go for it. Because she's five,and they don't look like a typical orange. She can not get enough. Josh on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with it. Mostly because he couldn't get over the name. You win some, you lose some. 
But look how gorgeous these are:
That one in the middle that's almost orange to deep red ombré. Love. 

I can't believe I paid $26 for all that food to be delivered to my house! Now to figure out what to make with Swiss chard. And the grape tomatoes. Because Audrey has decided that she doesn't like them anymore. More five year old antics. 

If you're interested in Door to Door Orangics, and live within the states that they are currently delivering in, leave me your email address and I will send you an invite. You will get $15 off your order!  Unfortunately, the spring sale has since ended, but they have a variety of boxes at pretty good price points!  Be sure to check them out!
