Target Finds = Pinterest Ideas

Lovelies!! How are we all doing?
I am doing fabulous! The husband had his citizenship ceremony today! So exciting!
To celebrate we went to Target! Ok, we stopped by Target after lunch... I just HAD to stop by!
I usually don't like to go to Target because I will come out with a TON of stuff that I really don't need but that I love! Well, today was NO exception!
Look at my loot!
All from the infamous One Spot!
So here are my thoughts on what I will do with all of these awesome buckets!
First up, these super bright green and pink buckets! They match my walls perfectly!
In case you haven't seen:
EW! Please only look at the walls!! OK, look at that mess... that was from the time I was SUPPOSED to organize {haha} well one wall is a bright green {along with the sink area} and two other walls are pink! <3 
I love them! I plan to paint the other 2 walls next month! {PURPLE and YELLOW}
Back to the buckets! 
I would love to do this...

This is an awesome replacement to those darn popsicle sticks!!! I always drop them and they GO EVERYWHERE!!! Haha and then all of the kids rush to "help" me and chaos breaks loose!!!
This post is from the amazing Laura over at Peace, Love, and First Grade! I saw this a WHILE ago and right away I went and bought more clips, I painted them with a coat of yellow acrylic paint and never finished my project! They are sitting somewhere packed up in my classroom... which I won't be able to get to until 2 weeks before school :(
I might have to take another trip to Wal-Mart and buy more so I can have this ready by then!
Look at my bucket with my new label that I just made for it!!! So pretty!
MMMM... look at my latte... YUM!
Back to the bucket! I love it so much! I just whipped this up for this post and I can't wait to laminate it for durability!
If you love it, I made 2 different color labels, grab it at my TpT store for FREE! Click {HERE} or the image below!
Well, I was planning on telling about the rest of the goodies but I think I will make a Part II for this! 
Writing blog posts take me forever!!!
Heading out to my 3rd Target right now to see if I can find a green pail {like my red one above}!!
I'll let you know if I find it and what I plan to do with it! :)
Before I leave here are some pics of today!
Took my nephew and daughter to watch the new Madagascar 3 in 3D! It was pretty cute... and look at my little hipsters! Haha!
The sweeties and I after the movie!
Yes, that's the same latte... I have yet to finish it!
Just the kids! So cute!
Have a super evening!

  4. I can't wait to see what you do with the square baskets. I bought some pink and green ones last week from Target and I think they are taunting me from the garage where they wait until I can get back into my room :) Cute signs!

    How Cute Is This!

  5. Congratulations to your husband! I bought the same black and green baskets at Target the other day - I will be interested in seeing what you do with them! I'm your newest follower! Stop by and say hi sometime!

  9. That Taking Turns bucket is amazing, I might borrow it from you! I also always drop the sticks and then the crowd goes wild!!!!! One day I went to pick a stick from the bucket and I only had like 8 kids' names in there... where did the other ones go???? Haha!
