Target Findings and a Freebie

All I can say is wow!!  Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and I'm so happy to have a few more followers to my blog.  You have truly made this a wonderful Sunday!  

As for my Target my husband surprised me with coming home early and told me to get ready because he was going to take me out for breakfast.  He knows what make this girl happy...and that is 'food!'  Anywhoo, right afterwards we stopped by Target since I didn't have time to check the weekly ads in the morning for school sales.  I love to browse and shop, who doesn't, right?  It was so nice to see the store so calm and mellow...there really wasn't that many people inside the store at 8:30 in the that was a bonus!  

These are the things that I found at the store and this time I bought everything that I found!  I was hoping to find more goodies in the dollar spot at Target but these were the only items that stood out.  I'm thinking of using the snack bags to include small back to school items for the kids.  I haven't quite thought about what I am going to use the foam hands...but I'm sure that I'll figure out something.  As for the Dr. Seuss paper cut-outs...who doesn't love Dr. Seuss!?  This will just go as part of my Dr. Seuss themed unit.  
OMG, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these stickers.  Do you see what I see?!  It's the owl stickers that were used make this wonderful Reward Jar!  I remember pinning this on my Pinterest board awhile back and told myself once I saw it...'I gots to have it!'  

Click here to go to website where I found this adorable owl jar!  I am sooo planning to make this, especially since I found the stickers!:)
The last thing that I found were these books.  I can't get enough of Pete the Cat and the Pigeon books.  The authors are amazing and I am all about singing and reading silly stories.  I love to laugh and even though I will admit that I do not have the best singing voice, I will always and mean always sing for my kiddos.  Even if I make a fool out of myself.  I also bought the book This Is Not My Hat.  
Oh my...your going to think I'm very weird, but I tend to read books aloud to my husband at the store to make sure that I like it before I buy it...yeah that right, I'm the weird lady who reads children literature books to a grown man at the store with expression and all, LOL.

Well I had to buy this one...he laughed at the end and if my hubby thinks a book is entertaining, it's a must buy for me.  As he pulled me away from the children literature book aisle...I told my husband that I seriously have a 'BIG' problem with buying children literature books.  I have sooo many of them and the collection seems to keep growing and growing!  He, however seems to encourage it...he says there is nothing wrong with buying books that I like, even if they are meant for a younger reading audience, heehee.  Well, if he approves..then so be it...I will continue to buy more books!

The 'Kissing Hand' Mini Unit giveaway will end by tonight at midnight!  You still have an hour to become a follower to receive the unit and don't forget to leave a sharing an idea that you use with the story (also don't forget to include your email).  I don't want anyone to feel left out, so just in case you arrive here late and missed the giveaway...I have included a freebie to this post.

  1. I love Pete the Cat books too!! I just bought the bus one from amazon and I have to say I didn't like it as much as the 4 other ones I own. My kids really liked the books last year. I am with you on books I have so many children's books it is unreal- plus I have 3 children of my own and they each come with lots of books!!! I do a field trip around the room to locate each area using Pete the Cat. I got the idea somewhere on pinterest last year. I haven't done The Kissing Hand in a couple of years I might have to pull it out and use it this year.
