Getting Back To School Ready With Target

Happy Monday SpoiledOnes! 

How was your weekend? Ours was entertaining as always with little Anthony. H-Town Kid is heading into the 1st grade and although we make several trips to Target throughout the year, this one over the weekend was different. Our focus this time was getting back to school ready. He's not ready for summer to be over and although it is bitter sweet,  I am ready for the next step in his educational life aka mommy needs a break. 

He is learning so much, growing so much, has his own energetic and witty attitude. 
Raise your hands if you've ever been to Target for 1 thing and end up walking out spending $100 or more all because the many other item that we all of a sudden need are staring at us whispering "buy me". Thanks, I knew it was not just me. 

We walked in and of course, Anthony was hungry. I'm always up for some popcorn from Target. We sat for 30 minutes, thats how long it took him to eat 2 personal pan pizzas, I people watched, thanking God that I only had one child to get ready for back to school. We have kept up with his "homework" through out the summer so make his transition into 1st grade easier. . 

We headed over to the "School Shop" the Target designated school supplies section where other children and parents were shopping. I am so glad I was not the only one who looked confused while following a list. The color coded end caps made it easy for Anthony to help me shop for his school supplies. He got to pick his 1st grade lunch bag and a very cool Star Wars school box. 

We shopped for about another hour, walking through the boys section, picking out new pieces to add to his wardrobe. He loves to try clothes and I love to see how he suddenly transforms himself to a superstar with his confidence shining after he feels good in a new jacket or t-shirt. It's so cute! 

The Cartwheel app by Target has its extra savings at the store making it easy for us to save simply by downloading the app. Back to school savings will be available on the app until September but trust me, you'll want to keep the app and enjoy the savings year round. This weekend was also tax free weekend in Texas which helped me save even more $. 

Y'all make sure to take advantage of the back to school savings through out the month of August. During the 2nd and 3rd week of August you'll earn a $5 gift card when spending $30, you'll also save 30% off school uniforms and next week kids apparel savings are up to 30%. 

Don't forget to stop by the mommy section and spoil yourself a little too. We deserve that cute little something something :)

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.

But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!

And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Meeting with Romeo Santos...So Nasty

I love music and as most of us do, we also have our favorites. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite musicians, Romeo Santos of the mega latin group Aventura while he was in Houston promoting his dvd release for "The King Stays King" a concert dvd from where he  sold out at Madison Square Garden for about 3 nights consecutively. He's like the male version of J.Lo, that hard to get close to. 

There must have been over 2k people in line waiting to get an autograph, catch a glimpse, a smile, and if lucky a hug from this latino heartthrob.... luckily I didn't have to wait in a line. I got a smile, a hug and we spoke and laughed about some of his previous work and very first cd. I was waiting on him while he met other fans for a private meet and greet the radio hosted and honestly I don't know how he does it...I was laughing the whole time, at the requests some of the fans were making, than at the replies the management would give. His management took car…
