CELEBRATION TIME!!! 200th Post Giveaway!!



This is it!

It's my 200th post here on Minnesota Meets California and we're celebrating with another great Give Away!

*************************

When I first started blogging YEARS ago, I never took it seriously. I look back to my very first blog and the things I blogged about and I just laugh. It's funny. I didn't take it seriously and eventually just forgot about blogging altogether.

A couple of years ago, I started blogging again. When I started planning our Destination Wedding, I totally got into it and blogged on almost a daily basis, journaling all of my wedding planning processes! I figured I'd have this to look back on in the years to come. :)

Now that our wedding is done and over with, along with all of our wedding related events, I've been trying to figure out what direction this blog is going to go. There are a ton of blogs that focus on things like Product Reviews, Nutrition, Weddings, Foods, etc. I don't think I'm going to be one of those bloggers that do any one certain thing. I think this blog will be a mixture of EVERYTHING. Perhaps more focused on my daily life, but I think I'll eventually get into a product review here and there; I already feature "Tasty Tuesday" where I share a recipe with you all; Mondays, I feature my "Meandering Mondays, where I share different blogs that I follow. And from time to time I will be doing some awesome GIVEAWAYS!!

*******************************



Have I expressed how much I just love Target? I am all about Target for many different reasons.

1) I love that I met my husband there;
2) I love that I had the opportunity to open a SuperTarget Store;
3) I love their products;
4) I love their prices;
5) I love that they have a Starbucks in their stores;
6) I love that I get a discount when I shop there;
7) I love that everytime YOU shop there, it's helping my future;
8) I love that they give back to the community and schools;
9) I love their super cool One Spot Dollar section;
10) I love their awesome deals on Black Friday;

I could go on and on and on, but I'll save you all from it. However, I would like to share with you the awesome cupcakes that I did for the SuperTarget's Grand Opening in Atwater, California.


I enjoyed doing those cupcakes. We had like three of those tables around the store that day and can I just say that I was so sick of cupcakes, not to mention RED and WHITE.

The reason I bring up ♥Target♥ and how much I love them, is because in celebration of my 200th Post, I will be doing a very special Giveaway!

    27. Target has great end cap surprises! I've gotten lots of fabulous deals on kitchen gadgets, toys and other items by making an end cap run each time I visit Target. I also love how clean most of the stores are (compared to other big box retailers). And I love that my Super Target allows a feral colony of cats to live on the premise and a cat organization takes care of fixing and feeding them all. Oh and I love that they donate so much money to the community. I get to take my daughter to inexpensive children's theater productions, thanks to Target. I'm a big fan!

    52. There's a Wal-Mart and a Target in the same shopping center around the corner from where I live, I like the Target better because it seems like a step UP from Wal-Mart....I mean, when buy clothes for my granddaughter, nothing compares to Target.
