We’d like to take a moment to recognize a site and blogger friend, Joan Hayes, whom we lost unexpectedly over a week ago. She was supposed to be a part of this Favorite Things event, and suddenly passed away from a heart attack just before this went live. She was a single mom with 3 children, and the website she ran, Chocolate, Chocolate, and More, was her main source of income for her family. Please take a moment to visit her site, follow along on your favorite social media, and SHARE her recipes with others so it can continue to be a blessing to her family.

Here is a close up and detailed look at the gift I’m giving, MY favorite things. I had such a hard time choosing what to pick because I. just. can’t. stop. when I am at Target.  This is also a good reason why I just called it and added a Target gift card to the package!

My Favorite things of 2015!  I LOVE that little phone wallet with the bow!! Swoon!

{From top, left to right}

Laser cut photo frames–  You can get these guys at Michaels Craft store and I am OBSESSED!  You can get a super cute and intricate frame for a really good price and they come unfinished so you slap a coat of paint or stain on in whatever color matches your space and perfection!  I made a gallery wall out of these for my daughter’s room.

$20 Target Gift Card–  Because it is my favorite place to shop and I am there a lot.  Why not be an enabler?!

Straw flags–  This is a favorite because it represents my addiction to the party section at Target.  Seriously cute, the package will come with chalkboard, gold, and those STINKING ADORABLE pink bows.  Le swoon.  Seriously though, if you have company over, you slap these on a paper straw and put it in their cup and they think you are super fancy for like no work at all.  It is as close as I get to magic!

Color Me Inspired Adult Coloring Book– Have you guys jumped on this coloring fad?!  It is soothing in the most awesome way, and with three little kids, I need an escape every now and again and this makes the perfect mindless fun for when I am stressed out.  This particular book, Color Me Inspired, was designed by one of the most awesome ladies I know, Dawn of Dawn Nicole Designs.  It is full of inspirational quotes and fun doodles and perfect to relax and have fun.  Insider tip: Make sure you visit her site and sign up for the email list where she sends out a monthly free coloring page or inspirational print!

Scotch Sticky Notes– I got an Erin Condren planner this year and I am loving sticky notes to put in and be able to move them around when I need to help keep track of things.  I also stick them anywhere and everywhere for reminders.  On the door for a reminder to my husband when he leaves for work.  Above the keys as a reminder for me.  On my kids stuff.  On the counter for the babysitter.  Anywhere. Everywhere.  For everyone!

Paper Straws with Polka Dots–  I can’t explain this but anytime I walk past paper straws I have a compulsion to buy some.  The are just so cute and so fun.  And like I said above, if people come over at a moment’s notice, you pull out a glass with a cute paper straw and a little flag, and all of a sudden you are super mom.  Plus they are great for crafts and indoor fun for kids, so it is always great to have a stash of these.

Heidi Swapp Journal and Date Stamp–  I got one of these at SNAP Conference (my favorite blogging conference – If I could give a ticket away, I totally would!) this year and although I expected not to use it at all, I fell in love with it.  It is super easy and fun to just stamp the date in and jot down a memory.  I mostly tried to write down fun things my kids did or said.  I think that will be really fun to look back though the years.  The other thing I like about this specific one is that it is super light and slim and so it makes it easy to stash anywhere and doesn’t end up in the way or cluttering up the space.

Scarf from– is one of my favorite sites to shop on.  They always have, cute, fun, or trendy stuff and offer it for a short time at a great deal.  There are literally hundreds of deals every day and I could probably load my cart up with 100 items every day, but I do practice restraint sometimes….  This exact scarf obviously isn’t available anymore, but I had to introduce you to one of my favorite sites to find cute and unique items for you and your kids!

Phone wallet with a bow–  I mean does this need an explanation?  It is a phone wallet and it has the cutest bow ever on it!  I adore bows and this was too cute to pass up.  It is available at Target in the wallet section.

Spritz Glitter Tape–  Another Target find.  How could you live without glitter tape?  An instant way to make anything cuter.

Chalkboard Clothes Pin Tags–  These little labels were found at Target and are super fun to add to anything you want to organize.  I use them on baskets to organize both in the pantry and my kids art stuff.   Since these are seasonal at Target, there are some similar ones you can grab on Amazon.
