So I got to visit Target, ..Super Target at that. I've wanted to see what it was all about, and I know that many Americans shop here... and finally my dream came true. ( I have very low-standards when it comes to dreams....) I must tell you it isn't much different from our super Wal-mart, in case you too had the same desire to shop at Target. I picked up a gift wrap organizer and a few odds and ends. My favourite store was Lane's for plus size girls, and it just so happens that I fit in their first size...(I won't let you know what that is for fear of ridicule...) so I picked up some shirts and a pair of crop pants, now I just need the long black boots to go with them....

We also indulged one night and got a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cone, (and yesss, that's exactly why I'm currently shopping at plus size stores...) which is ice cream put on a slab of cold marble, you then pick any toppings (I chose peanut butter, and reese peanut butter cups in chocolate icecream) then they use 2 spatulas and mix your combination on the stone, they then put in into a sugar cone and Wa-laa you have a VERY delicious ice cream.

When we were at the ocean, we visited a store called 'Anything Joes''s a store that carries lots of very cute kids items that can all be personalized. My kids have recieved several awesome gifts from aunt Alison from this store. I found a very cute large hand bag that will now serve as my new diaper bag. I had our last name put on it, and it looks great. I'll post a pic once I have one.

I probably spent a little too much, and I can try to justify it till I'm blue in the face, but instead I'll just hop back on to our budget and carry on (...with a few nice things under my arms)
