We found out what the heinous smell attacking our house was. I feel a strange mixture of total embarrassment and pride at the fact that it was entirely my fault.
Moving on... I finally bought the replacement piece to my sewing machine and got to work on a pair of pants that I found during a little shopping spree at the local St. Vincent de Paul this afternoon. I have really been wanting some red pants, but since it seems a biiiit likely that red pants may not be as hot next fall as this one, I did not feel right about spending anything more than 1.19 on them. So I plodded out in the cold and rain today, crossed my fingers and what did I find whilst thrifting?!?!
|these little guys!!!|
I got to work and with one leg only slightly tighter than the other I came up with this:
|With or without boots, with or without shoes|
I really hit the thrift store jack pot today getting 2 pairs of pants (Gap and Landsend), 2 skirts, a pair of indutrial strength rain boots and some cute little wedge heel shoes. Plus 2 boots for one child and books for the other (so that I didn't feel so guilty for only buying things for myself) all for 16 bucks!!!
All this by way of saying, I love Sundays.
