Homegoods, How I Love YOU!

BlogHer Reviewer


Bright and early on a recent Saturday morning, 6 friends and I took off for a local Homegoods in the Tucker area.  We were chattering and talking like school girls, excited about our field trip to the shopping mecca called Homegoods.

Not a stranger to Homegoods, I have been a huge fan for many years and sing their praises every chance I get.  This store truly is one of my top shopping destinations when I’m buying retail.  You can get more bang for your buck in home decor at Homegoods than just about any other store I know.

We arrived plenty early before the doors were opened, but that was fine with us. We had lots to chat about.

Mom and new blog friend, Lori, waiting for the doors to open.

Susan brought along her outdoor pillow she found at Home Depot, to find some cushions for her new wicker set.  We are getting ready to redo Susan’s back deck very soon and these will be gorgeous. 

Debbie (who owns the beautiful screened porch I just featured), me and my long time friend, Ruby.  I love these ladies!  They have been with me through thick and thin.  You can see by the smiles we were all ready for our shopping spree.

In we went to a beautiful breakfast spread.  What a treat that was!

I finally got to meet Jenny Lauck with BlogHer (foreground in black), after emailing with her over the years.  Those BlogHer girls are great too!  That’s my friend, Sandy, there to the left. 

Mary with Homegoods corporate in Massachusetts welcomed us with a wonderful hello.  Giftcards were handed out and off we went to the races! 

Lauren, Debbie’s daughter, came along for the shopping spree.  We all grabbed a cart to fill.

Lakeitha found some beautiful lamps.  I’m a lamp girl too!

Susan found some lime green cushions to go on her brown wicker set, along with some pretty accent pieces.

Hanging around waiting to shop more.

Sweet friend, Sandy, was here this weekend for BlogHer Food and I was so glad we got to meet up and visit.  Love this girl too!

So, what did I use my $100 to shop for?  I’m going to be redoing my bathroom at my parent’s house and found some great things to start the inspiration, using the avocado tiles and aqua countertops.  It’s going to be a great redo too!

Ruby is working on a new bedroom plan and this rug caught her eye.  She had me come over and approve it.  Yes, yes!  Get it!

I spied a few more things that caught my eye, which is not hard to do at Homegoods.

Aren’t these cute little side tables?

I thought someone just had to buy these, they were so pretty.  Turns out Lauren bought one!

This $99 side table was so cute too! It’s hard to pass up all the cuteness at Homegoods.

Deep blue and white chairs were gorgeous!

These linens were too.

Sandy found some great linens to entertain with.  After all, she is the queen of entertaining.  We all need to take some lessons from Sandy.

My friend, Debbie, found some black and white to add to her pretty porch this summer.

Here’s my shopping gang:  (L to R)  Mom, Debbie, Lauren, me, Ruby, Heidi, and Susan.  You can tell by the smiles that fun was had by all.

Thank you Homegoods for making this day such a special treat for all of us.  I’m so happy to be included among the bloggers who were offered this shopping spree for a few of our friends.

This was one of the funnest (I know this is not a real word!)  days I’ve had in a long time!

  1. Sign me up to win $100 giveaway – I’ve been so broke and in need of a Home Goods fix.

    I have to drive an hour to get to a store, but I would do that and look forward to doing that!!

    If I look around my living room I see quite a few Home Goods pieces, and even more in the kitchen. Rachel Ray, Wolfgang Puck, little jars of dried shallots, huge peppercorn grinder, gorgeous rug — on and on!

    Thinking one of those side tables may be on my list or the linens pictured above.

    If I had to name a favorite store – it would have to be Home Goods.

  2. Items for my guest room! Xoxo shel

  3. I tweeted about the giveaway @alamodemaven

    I just moved and there is no power outlet in my bathroom, only a light. So I need to dry my hair in my bedroom (the horror, the horror!). I am on the hunt for a cute mirrored vanity so I can sit down and make myself look human every morning 🙂

    Homegoods is my favorite place to browse. I want to buy one of those cute side tables with the flowered print.

  7. I am probably one of those rare persons who have never been to a HomeGoods store. Yep, I’m feeling pretty naive right now about what fantastic opportunities await me. I am always on the look out, however, for items that are not staples in other stores. How about a couple of matching chairs to integrate with others at a dining room table? The big rage now in decorating is supposed to be garden stools used as end tables in the living room. I love linens that are not mass produced and an be found no where else – even mix and match separates. If I win this gift certificate, I will definitely go check out the closest HomeGoods store in North Kansas City, then share what marvelous and serendipitous finds I stumbled upon. Pick me! Pick me!

  8. Just blogged about the giveaway! Here’s the link
    Thanks again for doing this giveaway!

    I LOVE Homegoods! Working on my little girl’s bedroom right now, and need some linens for her bed! (Plus lots of other things, too!)

  18. I would love a little free money to put towards our new house. Talk about a project! My son wants a monster themed room, my girls want an ocean theme, and I want a citrusy theme kitchen. Going to try to give our bedroom a more romantic vibe. All very exciting because this is our first home!

  19. I love HomeGoods! I would buy this cute bench they have there and would put in as a window seat.
