8 furniture finds at Target
There’s no denying my love for Target. My favorite days are walking around Target (alone) with absolutely no shopping list. I could get lost in that store for hours! Definitely my happy place. I always forget that they have SO much more online. Last night I was up late browsing their furniture and decor. So many fun pieces online …I just had to share! Thinking about getting the little table for the playroom. Loving the red legs!
8 finds at Target
Most of these awesome pieces can be found online… but one of my favorite new feature on Target.com is you can order it online and then do a store pickup for free. Shop online and then pick up your fun finds at the front of the store, so you don’t have to hunt them down in store. Find more information on their website here. One more reason to love Target!
Have you tried the store pick up feature? What pieces of furniture are you loving right now?
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Target. The opinions and text are all mine.

Easy banana cream pie recipe
Easy banana cream pie recipe -this recipe has all the delicious flavors of good old-fashioned banana cream pie but it’s literally done in minutes. Can’t beat that!
So far during pie week I have shared an apple pie, razzleberry pie and pumpkin pie. Another one of my favorite pies is banana cream pie. Yum. This recipe is so easy and if you love bananas, you are bound to love this pie too.
My husband’s grandma makes banana cream pie’s every year (along with about a dozen other pies) for Thanksgiving and it’s always the kids favorite. I was shocked when I heard it was so simple to make.
I dressed this “easy” pie up a little bit by piping on some homemade whipped cream. I just used a large 1M tip.
Easy banana cream pie recipe
Yield: One 9-inch pie
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes
Pre-made pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
1 (5.1 ounce) box Instant Banana Pudding
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
1 cup Cool Whip
2-3 medium bananas, cut into 1/4 inch slices
Whisk pudding and milk in a bowl for 2-3 minutes, or until it has thickened. Fold in Cool Whip and sliced bananas. Then pour the filling into the pie.
Chill at least 3 hours before serving. Garnish with the remaining cool whip (or whipped cream) and fresh bananas.
Now somebody give me a gigantic fork so I can dig right in! Yum.
Pumpkin pie recipe
Classic pumpkin pie recipe -an all time favorite dessert for Thanksgiving!
I know I told you the razzleberry pie is my all time favorite pie, but this pumpkin pie comes in at a close second. I always have to get a piece of each. Followed by lots of whipped cream. Everything you’d want in a classic pumpkin pie recipe is right here. I’ve tried many different pumpkin pie recipes and always seem to come back to Libby’s famous pumpkin pie recipe. This pie is smooth and velvety with the perfect blend of spices.
The main difference I made in this recipe was reduced the evaporated milk to make the pie a little more firm and added in a little bit of vanilla. It gives it the perfect flavor. Mmm…so good!
Yield: One 9-inch pie
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoons ground cloves
1 (15 oz can) Libby's 100% pure pumpkin
1 1/4 cup evaporated milk
Pre-heat oven to 425°.
Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add vanilla and spices and mix until combined. Stir in pumpkin. Gradually stir in evaporated milk until the mixture is smooth.
Pour mixture into pie shell. Then place pie tin on a baking sheet and place in the oven to bake for 40-55 minutes or until the center is done. Place a knife in the center to make sure it comes out clean. Also, I usually cover the crust with foil the last 20 minutes of baking so it doesn't get too brown.
Serve immediately or refrigerate. Top with homemade whip cream. :)
