Friday Five A.T. (After Target)

Happy Friday! Here's the latest dose of the Friday Five, 5 things that are on my radar or on my mind this week.

1. #LillyforTarget: It's almost a week A.T., After Target and the #LillyforTarget sale last weekend, things are getting back to normal although I still check my Target store almost daily for returns. So far, I have not found any traces of Lilly anywhere in the store except for hammock stands or umbrella stands. If you're in the market for those, I know where you can buy a bunch. A quick look at eBay, Facebook, or Instagram reveals thousands of items for sale, but finding pictures of Target for Lilly worn by a real person is much more difficult. The maxi dress sat at the top of my wish list, so I wore it almost immediately after buying it. The fabric is comparable to Marlisa dresses that I have from other seasons; it may be a little bit more substantial that Lilly Pulitzer. The bodice is lined and the fit is figure flattering. Perfection.

2. Spring? Although I appreciate the beauty of spring and the change of seasons, I admit that I am quite jealous of my southern neighbors whose shorts are on full rotation in the wardrobe. A freeze watch overnight threatens beautiful spring flowers, but luckily these tulips stand up to cold temperatures with strength. Reluctantly, I turned on the heat for what I hope will be the last time this year.

3. Rocksbox: Every month I eagerly await my new Rocksbox. This month's box was a special treat because my stylist Amanda included two statement necklaces. She wrote a note to me, "I made sure to send you two statement necklaces from your wish list since you love them so much!" She knows me well! I love everything that she sent. Get your first month for free with the code marylandpinkandgreenxoxo.

4. Spring Friends and Family Sales: As if I didn't have enough shopping temptations the past week, so many stores are having friends and family sales now.

At Saks Fifth Avenue, get 30% off with the code FRNFAM including some newly released Lilly Pulitzer.

Nordstrom matches competitors' pricing online, too, which is always a bonus.

5. Enchilada Bake: I love to experiment with new dishes in the kitchen. An enchilada bake that I made earlier this week smelled and tasted amazing. The girls and John asked me to make this again soon. It's so easy that I may honor their request sooner than they think. The simple dish takes less than an hour to prepare. The ground beef blends perfectly with the tomatillo and onion sauce.

Wishing you a wonderful day and a perfect start to the weekend.



  1. Can you share the recipie for the enchilada bake please! I love that maxi. I was only interested in L4T shifts but by the time we got to the store at 8:10 the shifts were gone but my mom snagged an XXL maxi and it fit me. I'm so happy I gave it a try! It looks great on you.

    1. Hi! I'm going to make the enchilada bake again (probably this weekend) so I will be sure to post a recipe in a future post. SO many people have asked for it.

      Have a great day!

  2. I love Lilly! Due to the craziness, I was unable to get anything from the highly anticipated Target line. However, I plan to check my local store for returns this weekend- thanks for the suggestion! In the meantime, head over to Little Miss Particular for my round-up of favorites from the original line! I can't get enough!

    Have a great weekend!
