It's all on the up & up.

How many times a week do you fill one of these carts up then go back around the store putting stuff back because you really don't need it? 

Don't lie.

I am a big fan of Target's Up and Up brand.


If there is something I need and Up and Up makes it chances are I am going to buy that over the popular, name brand.

Here are a few things that I ALWAYS buy on the Up and Up:

Advanced 7-Day whitening wraps
Hair and body baby wash
Kids sunscreen
1st aid spray
Radiant skin facial lotion
Positively smooth shave gel

Something Up and Up I bought that I will NEVER buy again:




Most people look forward to Fridays. Friday is the beginning of the weekend and for most people that means relaxing, hanging out with friends, being lazy, and having a good, stress-free time.

I on the other hand do not look forward to the weekend. Weekends are hectic.  Everyone is home, cooking is required 3 times a day, family activities last all day and leave me feeling drained and crabby by days end.  No time to relax, no time be lazy, no peace and quiet. Its just go, go, go.


For me Mondays are my T.G.I.F.  Husband goes back to work and the kids go back to school. I have time to sit down,drink my coffee, and read a book. I can clean the house and it stays that way, there is only one meal to prepare, and most importantly IT IS QUIET.

So to all my stay at home moms out there who have kids at school and husbands at work. Kick up your feet, read a book, have a mid-day cocktail, and RELAX!  You deserve it.
