Being Thankful all year long #ThankFALL #TargetTrickorTWEET

With autumn comes Thanksgiving and many of us reflect on our lives and what we are thankful for. Personally I try to be thankful all year long. I have a wonderful family that loves me. I live in a beautiful and clean community. A safe place close to nature where my children can wonder freely and enjoy the fresh air whenever they want. I am thankful for my country and all the freedoms it brings. I am also thankful for my blog. An outlet that has allowed me to become a work from home mom. It means a lot to me to have flexible hours and be able to attend field trips and other events I would not if I worked elsewhere. 

You may have seen me post recently about Fall and how much I love it. I like to look at Fall as a time to prepare for the winter. I do a big cleaning and get rid of anything the children have outgrown. This year, I got rid of something our entire family outgrew. Our towels that are old. Over this time we have accumulated a bunch of odd towels that no longer match. So when I was given the opportunity to go shop at Target for my home, I knew exactly what I needed. 

As you can see, my old towels did not match. They were worn and frayed around the edges.

With my goal in mind I headed to the closest Target store to check out the FIELDCREST Luxury line. I had a good idea in my mind what I wanted. Neutral colours and towels that were big enough to cover my body, all of my body.

I looked at all the colour options and mixed and matched a bit. I wanted two colours that would compliment one another. With Thanksgiving approaching I knew I had guests coming over. New towels would clean up the bathroom perfectly! I was thrilled to see that this luxury line was extremely affordable, more so than I imagined.

I chose light brown bath sheets, hand towels and face clothes. I also picked up some white towels with tan stripe to go with them. Of course I did not stop at the towels. Target has a huge selection of items to decorate your bathroom. Shower curtains, toothbrush holders and more! Many different styles to fit whatever your budget may be.

We have two bathrooms and I kept the new towels for mine. They are fluffy, and clean and big so I wanted to keep them all to me. Selfish mommy, I know! The kids were not happy and have since used them 🙂 But they looked so nice hanging there when we had guests here for Thanksgiving. It is amazing how a few small changes can brighten up a room and change things. I am now #ThankFALL for my new bathroom as well.

Now that my bathroom is clean and made over I look forward to enjoying the last few weeks of Fall. The mild temperatures, the leaves below my feet and of course Halloween!
