It means random.
I can`t shake my head at your ignorance because I know the word either, until 2 minutes ago. We`ll call it our: Word of the day.
The following is a dumping off of pictures from my camera I just unloaded.
We hit up Old Navy, lounged at Barnes and Noble, and ate at Macaroni Grill. My outfit was itchy that night, and not super pretty, I didn`t think. (I`m not begging for compliments. I`m stating a fact.) I like to be on my best game on a date– but that night WAS NOT THAT KIND OF NIGHT. 🙂 I also had a bad hair night– which you actually can see. As Beth Moore says, and I`m quoting VERY loosely:
“When a woman doesn`t like her hair. DO. NOT. MESS. WITH. HER!”
Laila`s outfit of the day.
Red Coat: Children`s Place a few years ago $3.00
Stripey Tights: Gap
Black Shoes: 50¢ thrift store 🙂
A potty, an eager spectator, and 2 dancing belles.
Laila: Hey…Where`s MY love?!
One night G walked to the gas station for the paper, and took the girls as they were. Coats over `jammas. Laila in all her snuggly, nippy-ed glory.
I ♥ little red coats.
Fun lunch with Shelly, Carissa, ξ Erika.
Every memory from the time I was 18 (years old) on… has them in it. 🙂
More old friends/fun night. 🙂
Father daughter dances.
While the Goods are nailing down the polka, they fail to see the Kauffmans have already mastered LEVITATION.
Go Team Kauffman!
Laila turned 2…
Kid`s birthdays after Valentines day. Clearance trinkets from V-day for birthday goodie bags. Yes, please.
Little brown bags with embellishments I had. All free.
Banner: easy to make.
Birthday girl, I love you…
Yeah, it wasn`t the greatest birthday party ever.
This picture is a great visual of kinda how it went…
My hus is gone for 4 days. I hate when he leaves, yet I like it too. No supper to cook, no socks to pick up, and there`s never hair from shaving in my white sink. I usually use the time when he is gone– to do projects or “extra things” I normally wouldn`t have time for. Of course the girls and I always get a movie and pizza too one night– just the little ways we spoil ourselves when the man is away.
Anyways, well today is Day 1 of him being gone and I was itching– is it only Mennonites that say itching in this context? I want to know– to go shopping and pick out fabrics and notions and just browse in a Joanns-type store all day long. But since the remaining 2 days he is gone are full of fun-ness, I felt too guilty to run around and burn gas today also.
I have recently been super inspired by the dar-A-ling pictures that Thelma had on her blog of her sewing. I have always loved to sew creatively, but rarely do these days. I was hankering for some fabric, so to Save and Serve thrift store I went. They always have great old vintage fabrics there.
With a big imagination and wandering eye, MAYBE I could find something sewable??
Among quite a few bins of remnants I found the two, above. For $1 and 25¢, I might add! They are only okay, not awesome. But they will do. Both fabric pieces are very old, when I ironed them I smelled sweet old ladies, and the faint smell of the 1950s…. It was like taking a trip.
After that I headed to Walmart for “notions”. No big city fancy stores for me today. I bought ribbon and thread I thought might be cool.
Another of my finds at the thrift store– I just had to share the excitement.
At first just looks like a gross old doll, right? She was laying in a bin with other ratty dolls, her face marked with child-induced smears. I could see by her features though, that she is from the same family as the doll we just bought Laila for her birthday. And Laila`s doll was $25 ridiculous dollars.
When I cleaned her up, and put a more modern outfit on her– she was JUST AS COOL as the doll beside her– the one Laila got for her birthday.
Way cool. I wanted one for Elle too– but wasn`t about to fork out another $25 ridiculous dollars to get her one.
Yay for $3 prices!
Got this in the mail today.
Can ANYONE, and I mean ANYONE top Boden in the creative department? A newspaper-like catalog– who`da thunk it.
I made 4 skirts so far, with the fabric I bought, but only have pictures of the one skirt. Maybe I`ll get pictures of the other ones later.
I really like it.
There`s nothing quite like using your scissors to cut fabric that hasn`t been touched in probably 20+ years.
I felt unworthy. 🙂
In other news, A huge thank you Emily Smucker for chosing Baileyandme2 as a blog worth mentioning. I felt unworthy. If you have never checked out her blog– you should– she is as funny and talented as they come!!
You can think of me. It`s probably me but my girls have opinions lately, and imaginations (which yes I am happy for) but wow, can they ever tear it up in a big way. When I tuck them in at night, I am just dead tired of dealing with whining, tantrums, spills, dumped toys, more messes. Yeah today wasn`t the greatest day ever.
They really are so sweet. I think it was just a rough day.
Tomorrow I`ll pick up the toys. 🙂
