Report and surprise

Well, the rumor was correct...my local Target had given the scrap booking aisle a huge overhaul (super-cute new designs, plus fall!!) and had put all the previously 30% off-ish merchandise on an end-cap for anywhere from 30% to over 70% off!!! Oh, yeah, baby!! I got everything you're about to see for about $13. No kidding.

Ok. Photo mounting squares for $1.07 and it comes with the nifty dispenser. I got two.
40 funky chipboard letters for $1.98
Place cards for $0.62 (and in a post very soon, I'm gonna show you what to do with them!).
And cute and simple embellishments, 12 for $0.98!

This adorable 32-sheet paper pack was $0.98 and the matching stickers were $0.87!! So cute!! All the paper is double-sided and so cheery.

A slew of envelopes for $0.74/ten and note cards for $0.62/ten. Plus a set of silver cards and envelopes for 48cents and 58cents respectively. Woo-yeah!!

Another paper pack, double-sided, for $1.07 and cute flowers 98cents/50.

And perhaps my favorite...this turquoise 8.5"x8.5" scrapbook previously $12.99, for $3.24. WITH polka dots. Oh, yeah.

My trip to Target yielded a surprise as well. I think this will be the first picture to go in the new album!!

Yes, a positive pregnancy test!

I was so surprised by the first one, I took a second.

Some of you know I miscarried a few months ago so we're asking for as much prayer as we can get that this pregnancy will progress normally, and for the health of our baby-to-be and myself.

I'll keep you posted!! :)

Wow! Congrats! See how helpful I am? I give you a Target shopping tip and you come back pregnant! I wish it worked that way for me - I'd have hundreds of kids by now! lol

You made out much better than I did. I'm going to check out another Target later this afternoon. My local Target is a Super Target & sometimes they don't carry as much general merchandise.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Would I sound completely weird if I said I had a feeling you would be announcing this soon? lol Must be mommy instinct. :D My DH said the envelope came ... not home just yet, so I haven't seen it. Tomorrow I'm going home, so I'll be in touch! :D
