what is about that store that sucks me in every time?

it could be the starbucks perched right inside the entrance with the soy chai latte sweetly calling my name. let's face it, perusing your favorite store only gets better when you've got your favorite drink in hand. has such a calming effect on me.

it could also be the dollar spot that i spent the first 15 minutes scrutinizing. do i need more random office supplies to clutter my desk? no, but they're just so darn cute. however, my niece kyra definitely needs the sesame street coloring book, stickers and figurines that i scored there today. what 2 year old doesn't?

i guess it could also be the trendy clothes section that leaves me drooling to be a hipper version of myself. with it's $5 leggings and always-full clearance racks i'm often in trouble. did i mention shoes? does it matter that i own 10 pairs of flats? but the ones i found are just so cute and at $12.99 i almost don't have to feel guilty! let's not even talk about jewelry... ok well maybe just a little bit. cutest earrings and necklaces ever and i convince myself that 1 necklace won't hurt even though there is absolutely NO ROOM left on my super-cute jewelry board my sister made me.

i suppose it could also be the home-decor section that leaves me longing for my own house. today i actually contemplated buying a clearanced ottoman and storing it in a spare bedroom in my parent's house. in fact i'm still considering cause at $59 it was a steal.

basically target has it all. including my heart.

did i just admit that on my blog? yikes.

I found your blog through Katie and read some of your stories. They are so intriguing and inspirational. One day in the near future I also hope to work as nurse missionary for at least a few months at a time. So glad that I found this blog, and I'm looking forward towards reading more of your stories. Oh, and I'll be following you now :)
