target for the win

Target has THE cutest stuff – for kids, for adults, for gifts, for literally anything you need.  I cannot even go into Target without leaving with a ton of stuff I don’t really need ….but I have to have it because it’s all just so good!

Here are some of my favorites!

I bought all 3 pairs of these shoes and am obsessed.  So many compliments on them already and you just can’t beat the price.  Find them HERE, HERE, and HERE!

Happy Shopping!


peek into my week


Are you following along on my Instagram stories?  If not, follow me @hillarykweidner and you will see a lot of updates about how the house is coming along 🙂

Below are a few highlights from our week!

[One night last week I put on my overalls and headed to the barn to pick an outside paint color!  Seems to be pretty easy since we are repainting it red but this ended up being more difficult than I thought!  So many reds and THANK YOU to all who voted – I LOVED #4 (like most of you) but was afraid that when a gloss was added it would be too bright.  SO, we went with #3 and couldn’t be more thrilled.  A true Barn Red by Behr.


[I’ll never get used to seeing this warrior’s “brave stripe”]


[And how sweet is this face?!  Is it weird to anyone else to see your babes in hand-me-downs?  Like it seems so recent that Bea was wearing this same top!  Makes me so nostalgic.]


[And it was a yogurt morning at the Weidners.  Bea had 1 bowl and Poppy could have eaten 10]


[And I had a total “mom moment”.  Poppy was crying for a few days with a low grade fever, I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her so finally I just took her to the pediatrician.  I thought maybe ear infection (she had tubes but maybe they came out?!) or something else but sure enough – the doc looked in her mouth and saw 2 major teeth coming in.  I felt like an idiot because HOW did I not think of that?!  Mom brain at it’s finest!]


[Find their watermelon dresses for $15 HERE]


[One of my sister’s best friends is getting married on July 7th and my cousin and aunt had the nicest shower – how gorgeous are these flowers?!]


[And Saturday night my sisters and the boys (my younger sister’s husband was out of town) played a little golf and had dinner.  SO nice being with my favorite people.]


[And if you read yesterday you know that Sunday was my Dad’s birthday so it was obviously a sad day – but made brighter by these girls.  So lucky to have them.]


[Find Bea’s dress HERE]




dad’s 62nd

It was my Dad’s birthday yesterday and because of that, I want to leave a poem on here for anyone who has lost a true love of their life.  One of my oldest childhood friends (our parents are great friends as well) sent it to me a month or so ago and I can’t stop thinking of it.  It makes me cry every time I read it but after I get through it, I feel great peace.

Peace knowing that although Dad and I are separated for a bit, we will be together again one day.



Death Is Nothing At All

By Henry Scott-Holland

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.

Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.

All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again.
