The Tiny Heart: February 2013


Look What I Got Link Up: Target Ankle Boots

Top-Express (similar), Vest-Zara Girls (similar for $14), Necklace-Eclectic Ornaments, Jeans-Old Navy, Booties-Target Kids (here in womens)

I got these ankle boots a result of major blogger envy. It seemed like every blog I read, someone was wearing them! I saw them on Katie, Jessica, Shea, and Beth. (And probably more that I can't remember). The more I saw them, the more I wanted them.

I resisted buying them for a while, since I didn't really need them.  But when the kids ones went on sale from $29.99 to $14.98, I had to have them. Especially since I had a Target gift card for $10, bringing the total price to $4.98!

Do you get blogger envy? Have you purchased something you saw another blogger wear?

I'm With The Band

Jacket-Target (similar), Tee-Old Navy, Scarf-JCPenney (similar), Pants-Target, Flats-Target (similar), Bag-Botkier (similar)

On Monday night I met my new neighbor. He happens to be in a band, a somewhat famous band. (Famous enough that I don't want to say the name on here). Let's just say we're talking Billboard top 20.

When my landlord (who is also in a band but isn't as famous as the neighbor) said who was moving in, I thought it had to be a joke. What kind of rocker moves into a studio apartment?! My apartment is twice the size of his! But it's true. Who needs a big place to live when you'll be on tour 90% of the year anyway?

Target Fail

Cardi-Old Navy (similar), Top-Forever 21 (similar), Scarf-Target (similar), Jeans-Old Navy, Flats-Target

This weekend I decided I'd go to Target and go on a little shopping spree, since I managed to rack up $70 in Target gift cards. Right away I spotted a bunch of things I liked, including this lace peplum top. Off to the dressing room I went. And guess what? I didn't like the way a single thing fit. They all looked great on the hanger, but not on me. 

Normally when I go into Target, I want to buy the entire store (but I don't thanks to my bank account). When I have free money to Target, I can't find a single thing to buy! 

PS Last day to enter the February Group Giveaway!



High Five for Friday

Linking up with From My Grey Desk for:

 1. The hubs got me this Valentine's Day card. Apparently the cashier at CVS said he should've gotten a romantic card, but I thought it was hilarious!

2. I won this gorgeous Miriam Merenfeld necklace in a giveaway. I think it will pair beautifully with my "mrs" necklace!

 3.  Oliver (left) taking a nap on top of his bone. Jinx (right) sleeping in bed, on top of a pile of dirty laundry when I got home from work. Typical.

4. When I watched American Idol on Wed. night, I did a double take when I saw contestant Brandy Hotard. Doesn't she look just like Tierra from The Bachelor?

The hubs will often get a craving for a snack at night, but there's sometimes nothing left in the cabinet. So, he'll debate driving out to the convenience store but usually he decides he's too tired to bother. 

Well, our wishes have been answered...the apartment building next door has now installed a vending machine. When the hubs had a chocolate craving last night, he simply walked next door. He came back with two Twix and said,"everything but these and the pickles were sold out." 

Chocolate bars, soda, and pickles...what more could I ask for?

Target Top: Originally $19.99, on clearance for $5.98!

When I was taking these photos, my creepy neighbor* was outside waiting for a cab. He said to my hubby, "oh, you're so lucky your girl lets you do that. Mine won't. You have a keeper there!". 

I'm not exactly sure what he was referring to, but I'm pretty confident he didn't think I was taking blog photos. 

*This is a new creeper neighbor. I have many! See here and here.
