$10 at Target: February Link Up

A few months back, Becky at bybmg started a series entitled, $10 at Target. She's been sharing her finds each month and this month, she and several other bloggers are hosting a link up for everyone to share their finds. I must confess, I broke the rules for the challenge just a bit (I'll explain!) but had so much fun doing this. My mom and I got a chance to shop together on Friday and since Becky had just posted the reminder, I had the challenge fresh in my mind. We both found some great deals - like the cute butterfly print twin sheets she picked up for my daughter's Easter present for $5! - and we enjoyed hanging out together, so it was a win-win.

On to my haul!

I love shopping for jewelry and accessories in the Target clearance section, so we started there. I found this pretty floral scarf for $4.48. I wear a lot of black and purple and green are among my favorite colors, so I think this scarf will get a great deal of wear.

Book Review: A Worthy Heart by Susan Anne Mason

A Worthy Heart by Susan Anne Mason is the second book in the "Courage to Dream" series. It continues to follow members of the Montgomery and O'Leary families. This book primarily focuses on Maggie Montgomery, Adam O'Leary, Aurora Hastings, and Gabe Montgomery, but there are a number of additional characters included in the book that are a part of the interwoven storylines. The novel is part historical fiction, part romance, with faith in God connecting many of the characters and their actions.

This book is full of many different twists and turns are so many different characters and plots! I did read the first book in the series, Irish Meadows, and unlike some other books, I think it is very helpful to start with book one. It will help the reader to get a better handle on the large cast of characters and the complicated and tumultuous back story that set the stage for this novel. That being said, I liked this book quite a bit better than Irish Meadows for some reason.…

Mini Capsule Challenge

It's been a long time since I've done a capsule wardrobe challenge, so when I saw on Instagram that Style This Life was hosting a 20 pieces, 21 days challenge, I decided it was time to do another challenge. Even more fun, my daughter (she's 8) decided to join in. Here are the items we picked!

I snagged a screenshot from my items in the Stylicious app. We're both using it to organize our items and create looks. It's pretty fun - and actually the reason I think she decided to give it a try. :)
