Weekending: Lilly Haul Edition + Lululemon Giveaway!

Hey Gals! I know we all say this every Monday, but this weekend seriously flew by in the blink of an eye. It was jam packed with lots of sun, some serious shopping, good food, and quality family time, so all-in-all, a big win in my book!

Friday after work, I headed down to the Jersey shore with GG and his family. We went out to dinner at a great brick oven pizzeria and I indulged in a little wine and an amazing arugula BLT pizza.
Saturday morning GG's family participated in a fun relay marathon race, as Little M and I cheered them on from each of the hand-off spots.

When GG finished his leg of the face, Little M was so excited to see him, and immediately joined in when he did his post-run stretching!


Afterwards, GG's family hosted a fun BBQ at their shore house, and we all soaked up the beautiful weather and some more delicious food, including this amazing cake that one of the racers baked in honor of the event!

We headed home Saturday night, just in time to wake up early and brave the Lilly debut at Target!
clearly Little M was pumped for the debut!
Once I woke up and saw everything already gone from the website, I raced over to my local Target and hoped for the best! Luckily the line wasn't too crazy (compared to what I saw from some of the other Targets on Instagram!), and my 7:45am arrival was early enough to ensure I snagged a couple of great items!
The line was just starting to wrap around the building when I got there
I knew that the clothes section would be insane and I really had my eye on a couple of the home items, so I decided to prioritize and head to that section first. Luckily my plan paid off, and I landed some great glassware, the mug and dish set I was lusting over, some fun bar accessories, and the pineapple serving dish!
Not a bad haul!
Next I headed to the beauty section, but it was slim pickings by the time I got there, but I was still happy to grab a travel case and some fun Essie polishes. As for the clothes section - forget about it! It was completely cleared out when I got to that section - not a single shift dress or scarf to be had! Since I cleaned up with the home goods, I'm not too sad about missing out on the clothes and accessories, though I'm slightly sad I couldn't pickup those cute gold sandals!
My Sale Haul
I still can't believe how much mayhem this designer collab caused! I mean, the line was seriously amazing, but it is pretty ridiculous to see people go so crazy over it, and clean out whole shelves, only to turn around and sell on eBay. Luckily I didn't have to go to battle with anyone in-store and I am excited for all of the amazing Lilly inspired Summer Soirees I have planned for all of my new pretties! And I maaayyy have snagged a couple extra items that we're tucking away for a future giveaway or two, so... stay tuned!
post-shopping celebratory guac and fruity cocktails with my new goodies
 With the shopping craziness behind me, I was able to bask in my post-shopping high, and enjoy a fun day with GG and Little M.
Miss Fred was all too happy to be carted around by Little M
We did a little gardening, some errands, and capped off the night with an amazing dinner of grilled lamp chops and asparagus with mashed "potato" cauliflower.
The perfect ending to a great weekend!
And lastly, we're super excited to be a part of an amazing giveaway with an even more amazing group of ladies! After all of this post-Lilly for Target nonsense, we could all stand to win a $200 gift card to Lululemon, so be sure to enter below - good luck!!

    Ok... so the cauliflower mash... does it taste like potatoes? I have wanted to try it for so long, but wasn't sure if I'd be into it. :P

  10. Great giveaway! I didn't even realize that that was home stuff so I didn't look :( The clothes were completely gone when I went at 10am.

  12. You did great during your Lily shopping! I think the housewares were even nicer than the clothes! I got T a bathing suit and bought a few dresses for my friend's baby but there was not much left when I got to my local Target. I saw a few bloggers I follow post about their 4 carts worth of Lily stuff and laughed to myself when they got reamed out in the comments about their greed. Some people ruin it for everyone.

  13. Glad your Lilly + Target trip was a success! I would have gone with your plan- the home items and beauty things were what I would have wanted the most! Everything you snagged is so cute!

  14. You really scored at the Lilly event! And all of that food looks heavenly (Bacon arugula pizza!?). Love how the guac looks on those cute new plates and I really don't think there has ever been a cuter cake :)

  15. Looks like you had a great weekend!!! I love that you snagged up the home items, those would have been what I was most interested in as well. Love you finds!!! I was at Target yesterday around 9am and forgot all about the Lilly stuff so I didn't even look to see if mine had any of it. I am sure if they did it was gone by then. Have a great week!

  16. i think the house stuff was better than the clothing, and i'm glad you got the stuff you wanted! can't believe people are selling them on ebay for crazy high prices. not cool!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I haven't been to either of the Targets near me to see if there's anything left but I'm 95% sure there isn't. Oh well there wasn't really anything I was dying to have anyway. Sounds like you had a good weekend!

  18. Lucky girl! I really wanted some of the housewares but did not drag my ass out of bed in time lol

  19. I'm both a little sad and a little happy I missed the great Lily event this weekend. Looks like you did good though!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks like you made out with a nice haul! That pizza you have there looks quite tasty!

  21. Glad you were able to snag some Lilly! I think the biggest disappointment about this launch was how many people bought stuff just to turn around and sell it on eBay. That's such a bummer!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Looks like a great weekend! I can't believe how crazy it got at Targets around the country! I went into mine later in the day, for something random and I overheard one of the managers say everything went in under 30 minutes flat in this store! He said best launch in their store history!

  23. Looks like it was a great weekend, congrats on your lilly goodies. What a crazy thing. I was able to score a few things but not everything I had wanted. Oh well. Least I got a few things. It is really disheartening to see people buy so much just to resell.

  26. Sounds like such a perfect and fun weekend! I love all the stuff you picked up at Target, I decided not to go on Sunday, I don't do too well in big crowds and I was afraid that things would get a bit crazy haha ;)
