So my experiment was a success. Chase wore her jeans today and even though the weather was crappy most of the day got to try them in the yard briefly this afternoon. They went together so quickly I want to make another pair. I have to go dig through my craptastic wardrobe to see what else I can part with. I used Ben’s photoXhibit plugin and Picasa to do a little mini-tutorial on how I turned the adult jeans into baby jeans. You have to scroll all the way to the bottome to see it.
Our errands today took us up north a ways to White Marsh and no trip to White Marsh is complete without stopping at Ikea. The trip was necessary though as in the last week I’ve pretty much broken all f the cups and bowls in the house. Those needed to be replenished as did our energy so we stopped for lunch in the cafe. Lunch at ikea is brilliant. Swedish meatballs, mac and cheese, pizza, everyone was happy. Not to mention the play area they have there, it’s the perfect respite from errand running. The only impulse buy to which I gave in was a tiny picnic table. It was one sale and try as I did I could not resist it. It’s perfect for enjoying a popsicle with a friend.
Ben’s impulse buy was much more costly than mine but also much more of a necessity. We finally put new tires on the car. It rides like a cadillac now. It still looks like a saturn but on the inside you can pretend you’re riding in luxury. It’s always hit or miss at Costco. Sometimes they’re giving out crappy soup sample and some days, like today you can really clean up. Just when Chase thought this canNOT get any better, we would turn the corner and oh, a raisin samples, oh, peaches, oh, look at that, cream puffs. It held her over nicely until we could get to lunch.
I can’t believe I almost forgot, this was probably the highlight of my day. The emergence of girl hair! Chase woke up this morning with one tiny curl… and it stayed to play all day! A couple of barrettes and not one person asked me how old is he today. Usually even the barrettes don’t make a difference it’s all the curl.
