Wordless Wednesday — Border Crossing

by Susan

Happy Canada Day!

Crossing the border.

As much as we love Canada, we admit we cross the border to get to Target (and a whole lotta Outlet stores).

Canada is a wonderful country and we are very blessed to live here. But c’mon… no Target?

Sorry for the poor photo quality… Janice took this photo on her iPhone as she crossed the border to go shopping. And sorry Canada for our shopping betrayals.

Now it’s your turn… Please click over to add your Wordless Wednesday link and to visit more WW posts. (Due to the Mr. Linky slowly down the loading of our site, we have to move it off the home page. Sorry for the extra click!)

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

That’s pretty cool. I’ve never been to Canada or anywhere even close to the border.

Happy Canada Day! It’s been far too long since we crossed the border for a visit. I don’t blame you for heading south now and then, I couldn’t live without Target!

Being in the south that’s a funny story for me :) I have all sorts of jokes on border crossings that would be coming from my husband :p Then again, we live less than 2 miles from Target- dunno what I would do without it!

LOL I would cross the border for Target too! :) That’s one store I couldn’t live without.

It’s not fair, the best shops are all South of the border (like Fuddruckers, mmmm). Before, we could have said “Yes, but you guys don’t have Tim Hortons”, but that’s not the case anymore… :-)

My WW post…

Happy Canada Day!

I’m doing much the same thing – border crossing to get to Target and such, too! lol Except, I live in Louisiana, a good hour-and-a-half away from Target, so we either trek to the nearest, or go visit the in-laws in Dallas. So this weekend, we’re doing the latter. YAY TARGET!

Happy Canada Day! I’m moving to BC soon from the states and one of the first things I did was find my nearest Target close to the border. A girls gotta have her Target, right?!

The nearest Target for me is over an hour away so it’s always a treat when I get to go to one!

Would you believe my family and I only just discovered Target’s bargains yesterday?? To think what I’ve been missing!!

Belated Happy Canada Day (I’m catching up from yesterday)! :-)
I haven’t been to Canada since I was a kid… it’s just too darned COLD up there. I live in Florida now, and when they say “border crossing” down here it has a WHOLE different meaning, and it ain’t for Target!! LOL

Love the pics, and all your posts — keep them and your visits to the states coming, you are always welcome!!

Reply

77 willowsprite July 2, 2009 at 7:55 pm

I’m confused. You guys are Canadian but pretty much all your contests, content, and giveaways are US…?
Anyways, happy Canada day too! I’ve been down to the states and went to a Target (just ’cause apparently that’s THE store to go to,) and I found that it was pretty much the same as Zellers, except with way better customer service!

78 Stephanie July 7, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Happy Canada Day (a little late). I’ve only been to Canada once, but it was a wonderful experience. It’s so beautiful there – lots of great places to visit, good food to eat, and friendly people to meet. How far do you live from the border?
