Oh, how I love Target...
Last night I reached a Target nirvana and I didn't even have to go there.
Let me back up. When I was pregnant with Jenna, I registered for the Tiddliwinks Blossom collection for her nursery. It was a pink/lavender/green/yellow butterfly and flower pattern that is very cute and girly. I had a great shower and got everything in the collection -- a quilt, blankets, crib sheets, a valance, rug, switchplate and plush butterflies to hang on the wall.
After Jenna was born, I kept going to Target to see if they had anything else in the line and found out that the entire collection was being discontinued. I was kinda sad because it is so cute but I had pretty much everything so it didn't really matter.
Fast forward 2.5 years. We are about to transition Jenna out of her crib and we need bedding for her daybed that's in storage. Last night I was fighting a headache that was threatening to become a migraine, so I had taken some drugs that were going to help me sleep really well. We spent an hour or so at our new house yesterday afternoon so I had gotten all excited about decorating the girls' rooms. So I was looking through Target.com half-awake -- partly because I was looking for stuff and partly because I was too tired to get up and walk downstairs and go to bed.
And suddenly, THERE IT WAS!
The Blossom pattern in a twin-sized quilt and pillow sham! And...
But that's not all. They were 1) ON SALE and 2) you got a discount if you ordered it all together. So I did. We can keep the rug and switchplate and everything else that matches the pattern. And we're painting Jenna's new room mint green. She'll probably get so sick of pink and green butterflies that she'll end up in therapy BUT SHE'LL HAVE A CUTE ROOM FOR A LONG TIME!
I'm telling you, you haven't lived until you've experienced an online Target shopping spree in a semi-conscious state.
