Mini Vacation for Moi

Mid week last week I decided I needed a day off. A FULL day off.
No spa day, no rest day...but

A power shopping day in the USA.

We only live 2 hours from some great US shopping...(ie: supertarget & TJ Maxx)

I called a friend, she played hooky from work, I called my mother -in-law, she happily came over for the morning to play and hubby took the afternoon off.  Voila, mission accomplished.

9am we headed out with new music on the IPOD, Timmy's coffee and passports in hand.

Never underestimate the power of girl time right?

Besides the gazillion tank tops I got for working out, I  managed to buy a cute dress, a pair of boots and a pair of cool clogs.

These clogs are cool...and for $15, a steal too...just saying.

As for Supertarget, I know once we get our own target here up north, I will no longer need to get all giddy when I walk through the food aisles, but to shop Target, without kids, and spend over an hour in the grocery section?

Giddy up! Duty free groceries!

My scores included:
Fat free cheese, fat free cream cheese (protein cheesecake here I come!), sugar free syrup for my protein pancakes, chocolate hazelnut tea, caribou coffee, sport beans and GU for running, Apple pie and Mohito mint sugar free gum...oh and Coconut M&M's....

For Cole...

Goober!!! OMG I was not allowed goober as a child (I now see why, hello sugar?) but I am treating Cole to some fun these last few weeks of summer!!!
Check out the granola bars....I also bought it in chocolate chip cookie dough flavor!

For the twins...

Picolini pasta's are small enough for little fingers and come in spinach and carrot/squash!! Banana toddler cookies..
The Easy-Cheez? Yuck, I know, but I have to find creative ways of getting fat into Kyle all day..and he will open wide for this stuff.

There you have it...

A little retail therapy goes a long way for this gal.
