Every time Target launches a designer collection you can expect what can only be compared to Black Friday on the release date.  The Nate Berkus for Target collection will surely be no exception and you better believe I plan on being there early in the morning to scoop some stuff up.  Now I just have to figure out which Target will have the best collection (it DOES vary by store, maybe I'll hit up two) and see if I can drag my sweet husband along.

Nate Berkus is a designer/author/TV host and he's putting together a line for Target that's sure to be amazing, judging by the preview.  He's got impeccable taste but also knows how to make a room or a home feel real and lived-in at the same time.

Check out some of the home goods that will be in the collection, set to release this Sunday, the 21st!

I'll be back to share what goodies I picked up!  One advantage to living in the middle of the country is that the stores are a bit less crazed for designer launches than they are on either coast.  I was able to get some of the Missoni line a week after it was released, which would never happen in a bigger city.  Although we do have five Target stores here, so I guess we're not small by any means.  And yes, I do know how many Target stores are here, what can I say?  Target is my happy place... especially when there's a little Nake Berkus in the mix.

Dear Husband: thank you for happily partaking in all of my little shenanigans.  You're the best.
Dear Little Girl Fur Baby: thanks for being just the best little blogging assistant ever.
Dear Friday's Letters: thank you for providing a means of a weekly "thank you" list that makes me recap the better parts of each week and be actively thankful for them.
Dear Fall: you will continue to get a letter every week until it's clear winter has arrived.  Then after that, you'll probably get "I miss you" letters.  It's definitely cold for good now here, but the leaves are still beautiful and pumpkin is still to be found everywhere in everything.
Dear Little DIY Project: your turn is coming, to get all dressed up and make an appearance here, thanks to some lovely inspiration found in other lovely blogs.
Dear Friends: this has been an amazing week because of you.  Each of you know exactly who you are and I love you.  If you're reading this, imagine me giving you a big ol' hug.
Dear Weekend: bring it on.  I'm ready for you, always.
