TargetWatch '09: The wait is killing me

Get ready, Grass Stains readers!

This fall, when SuperTarget opens in my neighborhood, I will be celebrating big-time. And I want you to be able to celebrate with me ... because it will be so much more fun to share it with all 12 of you.


At the store's grand opening, I will purchase a $100 Target gift card to give away to one of my readers. But, here's the thing ... sometimes when people do giveaways, they have LOTS more people than normal read their post for that day and try to win the gift item. And while that's great and all, I'd just love for one of you who drops by every day to get it.

So, I'm going to keep it on the down-low. I'm not going to ask you to spread the word. Just keep reading -- and commenting occasionally, so I know who you are -- and we'll hope for the best. (I'm certainly not going to PREVENT the random winner from winning, whether I know you or not; I'm just sayin'.) Sure, I'd love for you to refer me to your friends as a good read, but not just for the giveaway. But start sending them over now, if you want to send them at all, so they can get to know me a little bit before The Big Day.

Now EVERYONE has something to look forward to when my SuperTarget opens! Good times.

That's really nice of you! I am new, just subscribed a couple of days ago after finding your blog. Love what I have read so far.

Very exciting :) I've read your blog and Jonah's blog for quite a while... and never commented on either. I'm one of "those" lurkers. I figured since I'm equally obsessed with Target and we're a military family in desperate need of a home makeover... now's the time to comment! Also, I've got a 10 month old son Gabe so I like seeing Jake and what is in my future!

I'm so jealous of your soon-to-be proximity to a Super Target! It's a 45 minute drive for me. A drive that I would gladly make for a hundred bucks though ;)

This is awesome! But...... I read and am a 'follower' but I never comment.

I love your posts but considering I'm not a mom yet... and I don't want you to think I'm crazy I never post.

But I love your blog (it entertains me to the highest degree) and I will tell my people (??) about you.

PS. Target is pretty much the best thing to ever happen to the retail industry. Just putting that out there.

I can remember many years ago when Publix finally came to within 5 miles of our home. I took the day off to be there when it opened! I can relate to excited you can get when your favorite store opens near you.

I've been enjoying your blog. You are a clever writer, and a fellow PB lover (and I mean Pottery Barn, not Peanut Butter, although I'm okay with peanut butter too).

I came over from Jonah's blog to you.

I am so with you on that cookie and cake thing. I too am trying to lose 40+ would be nice, but it is so hard for me. I loe my Pepsi:) and I absolutely LOVE cookies, the chocolate chip kind:)
I will be right beside you on this. And Jonah is sooooo cute! You are lucky to be related, that is if I believed in luck.

Good luck with Jenny Craig! We pulled into a parking lot of Super Target today and my 6 year old shouted - "Great, Super Target, the bestest toy store EVER!"

I'm glad to see that several people have "come out of the woodwork" so I could meet you! I hope to experience the joys of having a SuperTarget as close to me as some of you have!

I found your site from Jonah's! I enjoy reading your blog. I hope you enjoy your night at your new Super Target! I love Target, but alas, it is only a regular one.
