Henry won a Target gift card on his last day of school. Yesterday, the whole family went to Target so Henry could cash in. As he was looking at all the toys (each aisle had to be browsed at least twice), he somehow lost his gift card.

Despite the searching (another two rounds through each of the aisles), we couldn't find the card. On a last ditch attempt, I asked an employee in a nearby aisle where to ask if anyone had turned in a found gift card, and as luck would have it, someone had turned it in...to her!

So he got his card back, maybe learned a thing or two about being responsible for your money, and was able to buy a Wubble. Thank goodness for kind and honest people!!

xoxo,
megan bird

  2. That's refreshing to hear of a do-gooding occurrence! I adore you two's renditions of the photo. I didn't have an occasion to wear my LBD this past week--or I would have! :) Hugs! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  6. Wow, what luck (and what a relief I'm sure)! A similar thing happened to my husband at Target. He realized right before he checked out that he had dropped a $50 bill (!) and he went back to find it and it was STILL there in the dairy aisle. Crazy, right? Anyway, you're both looking smokin' in your LBD/LBRs!

  15. Oh that is so lucky! The same thing happened to Brielle once. Kaden happened to find her gift card lying on the floor! It was Toys R Us. Thank goodness! That would've been a huge bummer! Both you ladies hit the inspiration on the head here. You look great!

  16. oh, my this was such a story. I thought, no way it will be lost, but there was kind person who saved the day. Lately I would need some in my life. Disappointment after disappointment about how dishonest people can be. My little heart aches. Then I think..maybe I'm being silly. Hmmm... but then again.
    So glad Henry had a chance to get his Wubble.

    Ladies you both look stunning. Love how you took one inspiration and created this look in your own style. Fabulous.

  29. Good new for Henry!! I lost my purse in Target a couple of weeks ago and an employee found it. I was totally panicked and had dry mouth while trying explain where I last was when I saw it. Very honest people...thank God. I blame 47...and lack of sleep.
