LEGO Hogwarts Whomping Willow Set

Standard
LEGO Hogwarts Whomping Willow Set

Hello! Johnny and I recently had a huge LEGO haul with three new sets to build. He also gifted me with an additional Harry Potter set for our two year anniversary when our haul arrived in the mail. You would think that we wouldn’t need more LEGO for a while but, on the contrary, we always need more LEGO!

This past week, I went on a Target run with my brother and mom and had to peak in the LEGO aisle to see what they had. I really didn’t plan on buying anything but when I saw the Whomping Willow set on sale, I just had to get it:

I have wanted this Harry Potter set for a while now because it serves as a connector to the Clock Tower and Great Hall which we already have. It is one that I have held off on buying since Johnny and I usually like to splurge on bigger sets but it has stayed in the back of my mind – just like the million other LEGO sets that we want!

I got my flu shot at Target and since the price was right on the Whomping Willow set, I decided that I deserved a treat. This purchase was the adult equivalent of a child receiving a sticker after a doctor’s appointment and I have no shame in admitting that lol. Too much LEGO ain’t enough LEGO as they say! And by they, I mean me.

Building LEGO with Johnny is one of my favorite things to do and I can’t wait to complete the three Harry Potter sets we have on deck together. This past weekend, we started working on our Attack on the Burrow set so be on the look out for pics of the end result once we finish it!

What do you like to build with LEGO? Which sets are on your wish list? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

 

A New Day Cardigan

A New Day Cardigan

Hi! While I love Target, it is normally not the first place that comes to my mind when I want to do clothing shopping. However, I was so impressed with their selection during a quick Target run this past week for a few odds and ends and I am looking forward to going back in June once they open their fitting rooms! There were so many pieces that I had my eyes on but I didn’t want to deal with the hassle of returning the items that didn’t work after trying them on at home. That didn’t stop me from purchasing a darling dusty lavender cardigan, though, since I could just slip it on over what I was wearing! Check it out:

During my run through of the Target clothing department, I instantly fell in love with my new crocheted cardi. I have been obsessed with anything lavender ever since buying my floral lavender skirt and crop top set from Altar’d State because I have never had anything of that color in my wardrobe. When my hair was just red, lavender never used to look good on me and would really wash me out. But once I replaced the yellow in my hair with pink, it opened up so many new colors that I never dreamed of wearing before.

All of these color options that are available to me now like blue, pink, and lavender has made these first few shopping trips since the beginning of the pandemic super exciting. It makes me want to try everything on and I can’t wait to update my wardrobe accordingly once more fitting rooms in stores are open. For now, though, I think I am off to a great start thanks to my Altar’d State Haul and this sweet sweater.

The color was, obviously, a major selling point of this cardi for me as well as its shape. When it comes to cardigans, I usually opt for longer ones. However, my A New Day cardi hits right above my hips and that length combined with the roomier sleeves offers a silhouette that I didn’t have anything like.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw my purchase was how perfect it would be with my lavender skirt and top set during a breezy summer evening. I also think that this cardi will be so cute paired with dark denim shorts and a crop top, which is an outfit that can easily be transitioned into the fall with tights!

These past few shopping trips have been just as magical as I imagined them while in lockdown and it feels so good to have fun with fashion again. 🙂

Which colors look the best on you? Which colors do you avoid wearing? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

 

 

 

Target Run

Target Run

Hello! I have not been in a store just to browse since the beginning of the pandemic and you guys have no idea how much I have missed it. For a while, I was only going grocery shopping and I stopped doing that a few months ago, opting for curbside delivery instead. Now that I am fully vaccinated, I feel much more comfortable running errands so when my sister texted me last Saturday morning asking if I wanted to go on a Target Run, I couldn’t say no!

Kristen picked me up with my niece, Valerie, and I was so excited because Target is Val’s favorite store and I have never been there with her. Such good taste at just two years old! It seems so simple but that small outing that lasted a little over an hour was enough to make me insanely happy. It was, finally, a warm spring day in Ohio and driving in the car with Kristen and Val with the sun shining and music playing on the way to Target felt like the first semblance of normal I’ve had in a long time.

I am just as surprised as all of you that my first window shopping trip in over a year wasn’t to TJMaxx but Target is a close second and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. We even ran into Jared’s really quickly after our Target trip so I could check on the progress of my wedding band and it is looking amazing. Kristen and I are planning on doing another shopping excursion soon because we are both in need of new summer clothes and I can’t wait. Here’s to many more safe outings all summer! ❤

What have you missed the most during the pandemic? Which store is your happy place? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
