I scored big time at Goodwill today. Jessie needs jeans - she is growing out of hers so fast and they are all so tight. So I run in there at lunch, didn't see any jeans for her but I found:
Vintage sheets for $1 and $2 a hanger (some were the complete sheet sets). I've been wanting to find some just like these to make: myself and my Mom a pair of lounge pants, and Jessie and Tyler summer pjs. I get so depressed when trying to buy sleepwear for the kiddos. Everything has characters on them - which I am not a fan of at all, and is that super stiff material that shrinks horribly the first time you wash them (and neither of my kids like tight fitting clothing). I'm thinking I can make a cute little tank top and boxer style shorts with an elastic waist for Jessie, and then make boxer style shorts for Tyler that he can wear with some plain white tshirts. Being sheets, they shouldn't shrink - although some of the flowered ones may be slightly ugly.
And the lounge pants for me, I think I just need because. As I tell Todd, if I have these, then I won't be laying around in my flannel pajama pants all the time (and yes, I have been known to run to the store in them - but only if absolutely necessary).
It was up in the 40's again today - a lot of the snow is melted away. We spent about an hour outside tonight cleaning off the cow lot and filling water troughs.
Enjoy the sun,
