Hot Damn!!!


Just when I think it's a ho-hum Wednesday with nothing exciting, my friend Jen calls & gives me practically the best news I have heard all year....................Target is coming!!! Just a short 12 miles from my house. It's been rumored for quite a while now, but that's always the way it is around here. You can't believe anything you hear...... But today it was in the newspaper...all those wonderful rumors are true! We are getting a Target!!! We have lived in Alaska for 10 years now, & before that we were in England. It has been sooooo long since we had a decent selection of stores that I can hardly believe this. Let me tell you, when good shopping is a thousands of miles away (I'm talking Seattle) Target is like a dream come true. I am almost giddy!!! I am so sick of Walmart, I can't even begin to tell you..... It's funny, there are women who post on 2Peas about how far they have to drive to get to a Target...you know, like 45 miles....what I wouldn't give, it would take me over a week by car. But before long that won't be an issue any longer... ***can't you just feel my giddiness***
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On another note I rekindled an old relationship this morning...I had a date, with Billy Blanks, you know...the TaeBo dude. We haven't 'gotten together' in about 6 years. But this morning I dusted off the tape (yes, VHS...that tells you how old it is) & spent a few minutes with the man......20 minutes to be exact. And tomorrow my butt will burn, but it will be so worth it. There is a swimsuit & a Hawaiian beach in my future (March), so Billy & I will be spending lots of time together. It's a good thing K. isn't the jealous type............

Yay for you!!! I know you are SO excited! My closest Target is about 35 minutes away, so I don't get to it often. But, still . . . it's there when I want it!

Suwheet! Target is a beautiful thing. I am soooooo happy for you.

A date with Billy? Yippie for you getting back in the groove. It can be so hard once you stop but well worth it when you start to the see the results.

Now I must go dig my Billy out of his hiding. :0

Oh, and before I forget, I really liek your idea with the sticks. I'm a visual person and that seems like it would be something to keep me motivated too. Hope you don't mind if I "steal" the idea.

Oh jealousy.

We have Target here in Aus, but it is really just the name...I miss Tar-jay...

Surfed on over to see if you'd posted anything else lately and nope . . . LOL . . but, I just had to share that last night I found a Target gift card from last Christmas that I had lost! So now I have some "free" money to go spend. Yay!!

I often joke that if my house burned down, I would just go live in Target. Starbucks had teamed up with the Target snackbar so with my latte in hand, I can find ANYTHING I need among the aisles of Target. Lucky you!

I have a 3 DVD set of Billy Banks Tae Bo Bootcamp...would you like them? I unwrapped disk one and did it only once. My hip and back pain (yes, I am decrepid and old) screamed at me for a week. I don't have the Billy Bands that came with them (my kids played rodeo or something) but I am happy to mail the DVDs to you if it will help you hit your Hawaii goal. Let me know.
