Is heaven like this?

This morning while shopping it was mommy nirvana:
Starbucks and wide open aisles at Target.


  1. I suspect it could be… I’ve never experienced such a wonder!

    The only thing more decadent is shopping when all of your kids are at school. This looks like a darn close second.

    Is that a latte the boy’s drinking?

  3. Wow!! Lucky you!! I NEVER see that!! Glad your shopping experience was a blissful one!!

  4. How wonderful for you! Glad you had a good shopping day.

  5. OMG! That is great! I am just wondering if he took a nap later for you?!

  6. A Mom Two Boys says:

    Oh, wow. Too bad you had a kid with you. That would have been even better.

    I noticed no one was at Target this morning when I drove by. Are Wednesday mornings taboo at Tarjay?

    Now that we’re on our way there shortly, I’m sure it will be friggin packed.

  7. Lucky!

  8. You can keep the starbucks, but I’ll totally take the wide open aisles of Target!!

    I have something for you at my place.

  9. Nice, and no one else in sight–you are blessed!

    You need to back-link to your prior post about Startucks serving things OTHER than coffee…

    Or did you provide R with a double-mocha-whip-latte-frappo-Snickers-in-a-cup? Or whatever Starbucks serves. I never go 🙂

    Whoa. I’m speechless.

  12. So while I am a proud Canadian I must say I envy your ability to drive to Target. I “heart” Target and Starbucks (yes we have them). Looks like bliss.

    Good for you…I don’t dare shop with my team, it never goes well. Lucky you:)

    OHH!!!!! I only get to go to Target–and drink Starbucks while there–when we visit my in-laws in Colorado. One of the hardest things about living in Russia is NO TARGET! We go there twice a year when in CO and STOCK UP on everything you can’t get in Moscow. It’s such a ritual that this happened at Natalia’s school:

    When she was 3 1/2, they had their daily ESL class. Natalia was always bored during that class as the only native speaker, so she often tried to add a littl emore to her answer, depending on her mood. One day the teacher did shapes, on big piece of paper, with fat markers. As she drew a red circle, Natalia shouted out, you guessed it, “TARGET!” The teacher didn’t know the word, looked it up in the dictionary, and was SO impressed by Natalia’s vocabulary. Little did she know that my kid was talking about SHOPPING instead of archery! If the circle had been green, incidentally, it would definitely have elicited a “Starbucks” response, too!

    About Starbucks–there’s one now in the center of Moscow, but traffic is a bear to get there. A venti latte costs $8.47, and it ended up costing me $11.75 to park while I met a friend for and hour and a half. (I’d never spent that much to park before, but I was running late and there were NO spaces anywhere. The Starbucks is on the old Arbat, the historic cobblestone pedestrian street, so automobiles and the need to park them certainly weren’t taken into consideration while planning the spot hundreds of years ago!) Sure makes your USA Starbucks suddenly seem a whole lot cheaper than you originally thought 🙂

  15. That does look like heaven! Cute picture. See you later. Kellan

  16. Oh man . . . you have a Target? Why does everyone have a Target but me?!? Jealous . . . Oh, and don’t even get me started on Starbucks. We don’t have one of those either . . . UGH!

    And a kid that sits in a cart, to boot. You were having a perfect sort of day, weren’t you?

  20. Happy Campers says:

    OK…upon further inspection, did you strategically place the Organic Baby Spinach box within camera view to counter-act the Starbucks For Baby effect? 🙂 hahahaha

  21. Tootsie Farklepants says:

    I’m inspired to go shopping!

  22. standing still says:

    Here’s a little secret from one whose boy is far too big for the cart. When you drop them at school and the first cup is by yourself and the aisles are wide, and you have a coupon for 10% off (because you buy so damn much there).

  23. Great photo! My favorite time to go to Target is 8:00 AM — just me and the shelf-stockers!

    I LOVE Target. I need my Target fix. It’s been way too long. Sniff.

  25. Beautiful!
