Target. $1.74.

I don't know about you, but sometimes I can get totally side-tracked looking at different blogs. There are so many creative people out there in blog land and most of them inspire me to be a better Christian, wife, mother, and friend...which is what draws me to their blogs. Last week, I went from one blog to another until I found this adorable lady on a video demonstrating different ways to wear scarves. She apparently gives out fashion tips every Friday (which I am also desperate for!!) and this is one of her latest. Since I am now living in the arctic (aka...Northern Indiana), I found this information very valuable and wanted to share it with all of my blog friends.
You can go HERE and see "Big Mama" for yourself.

After watching her video, I thought about all of my sweet friends at our new church....and wanted to share this information with them too. I don't think any of them check my blog, so I decided to share it with them tonight at our ladies get-together. I am going to ask for a volunteer and show them some of the different ways to wear a scarf...and hopefully get even more ideas from them. This idea led me on a search for a new scarf that I could actually give away tonight to make this even more fun. So, Sunday afternoon, I set out for my search. I went to TJ MAxx first, then Old Navy, then KoHl's.....and only found one that I liked...but it was almost $12...a little too pricey for my "giveaway". Well, I was still determined to make this fit in my budget! I was on the cell phone with my friend, Robyn, (pretty much during this entire shopping experience) when she finally said, "Go to Target!". So...I did. Within a couple of minutes of being in the store I spotted this beautiful, super-soft black scarf. Then I looked at the price tag and could not believe my eyes. $1.74!!!!!!
Thank you, Lord for blessing me with this! I can't wait to see who gets to take this home tonight!

Good find! I love that!
I saw that same video on Big Mama last week. I was directed there from one of my favorite blogs Bring the Rain - did you find that one?
I saw your sweet Grace tonight at Princess Pack. I hope she had fun - it seemed like they all had a great time.
