Right On Target

I think it's fair (and boring?) to say that my quality of life has improved thanks to Target. I've always enjoyed shopping there, and especially look forward to the special designer collaborations. But since the baby was born, and with the brand new store five minutes away in East Liberty, it makes for a good get-out-of-the-house activity.

What also is great is that they have a fantastic selection of things exclusively online (and if needed, I can easily return it down the street.) Lately, I seem to be lucky just to have one hand free so I use their iPhone app to create lists and shop with an easy click while I am nursing or rocking the baby to sleep. My, how times have changed.

Two favorite and recommended exclusive product lines online for new moms:

DwellStudio for Target Baby. I am pretty sure I bought out all the baby boy clothes that were available. Super cute patterns, soft fabric, great quality. The line also includes furniture and bedding too.

aden & anais for Target. aden & anais swaddle blankets are amazing. Made of breathable, stretchy muslin, they are oversized and perfect for a tight swaddle and making baby feel cozy for sleepytime. Also great to cover in the car seat or swing. Target has cute exclusive patterns of this brand, and they are a bit less expensive than the ones found at baby retail stores. The a&a burpy bibs are useful too-- curved to fit the shoulder, and when baby is older, the hidden snaps turn it in to a bib. Genius.
As I said once, and I'll say again, this is not going to turn into a baby blog! But certainly, my life has changed quite a bit and we're still in a transition period where I am learning what he needs first and foremost, and what I need to keep balance too. (More sleep would be nice, to start.) And babies are so much fun to talk about, anyway.

As for adult excitement (in the most innocuous sense of the term!), I am interested in seeing, let alone scoring some of the Missoni collection for Target coming out next month. Supposedly it includes shift dresses, accessories, bags and home accessories in the colorful, iconic zig-zag pattern.
