Weekend Update

Eventually I'll manage to write more than one post a week. Not a whole lot has happened this week. We are still sort of camping here. I haven't been to my house in a week (I have other people feeding the cats). Tomorrow I hope to go and clean up big time and pack up some things to bring here to store.

Let's see today I woke up at 5 to go to the Tree Street yard sales again. They moved the date a week back and no one was there. Only half the houses participated too. I am thinking I'll go back next weekend when people think it is going to happen and see how many new houses are there!

Bought lots of stuff, mostly for the baby. Here is a rundown of the loot (have to take pictures and talk about cheap stuff every so often or they'll kick me out of the frugal club hehe). Here is the baby loot (all in like new condition - don't you love that phrase?):

gymboree turtleneck in teal and a floatie vest bathing suit sort of thing - 25 cents each
additions to our panda family - 50 cents each

Nemo dress to go over her nemo bathing suit as a cover up - $1

Starter jacket for the fall - GO VOLS! - $2

I thought this was cute for the next 4th of July - $2

A wrap around boutiquish type creation. Double sided with ricrak trim, weird but cute. - $1
Old Navy denim jacket - $1
Gymboree lual skirt and hat - $2. Old Navy hula girl shorts, 50 cents.

Old navy bathing suit and swimmy shoes (with tags) - $1 each(I know they don't match but there aren't a lot of options in TN for beach shoes).

Light pink long sleeved top for next winter - 50 cents. Halloween shirt for this year - 50 cents
Beach tshirt for now - 50 cents. St Patty's Day shirt for next year - 50 cents
Shorts for next summer - 75 cents. 2 lovies, $1 each (now she didn't really need these, I just wanted them. I wanted to buy them new while I was waiting and didn't so this gives me my fix).

A pink poodle costume for halloween this year. - $2

Overalls for this year - $1

And here are the fabric remnants I love to buy every year with the intentions of making pillows. The interior design sorority type girls sell them, 10 for $2, I got 30!

My mostly solids for the backs. Chenille, tweeds and velvets :)

And all the patterns. A wild mix but in real like they sort of go together.

(the middle piece has fur on it!)

(I like the top one a lot, there is a solid that matches it perfectly, they were next to each other in the sample book)

(the bottom one is really nice in person too, a nice texture)

Ok, so looking over them again, maybe they don't all go? :)

I also found Bobo's cousin, TanBo. Tanbo is same fabric but he is a bear that is standing up. Oh, and he is tan :) She went nuts when she saw it, so now many we'll be able to take one around town without the fear of loosing the only Bo. I halfway thought about trying to dye him in beet juice tonight when he comes out of the wash to make him pink!

So we come back today and the baby is starting to get whiny. I get her home and fed and she throws a plate on my foot and it breaks (the plate, not my foot, but it does hurt) so she got a time out. I then hear I POOPED (her new thing). I go in, she hadn't just pooped, she had taken off her diaper and dumped in her crib and smeared poop from nose to toes. And she peed in the corner. Is my kid the only one out there that plays in her poop? Good grief!

This is from a couple of days ago. She is very fond of her "mocs" and wears them almost 24/7.

And this is from earlier in the week. She leaned over her crib and pulled a bunch of her clothes into the crib to sleep with them.
Her pointy teeth on top are coming in. That will give her 6 on top and just three on the bottom. I am not sure where that 4th bottom tooth is??

Ok I think that is it for now - bye!

Hey Kim!

I love reading your blog! - updating my own?? that's another story! Too much thinking when it comes to writing my own....

Had to chuckle when I saw the clothes in the bed - Sophie does the same kind of thing. She goes to the dirty laundry basket pulls out clothes and drags them everywhere with her! Find them in the tub, her bed, my bed... oh well, maybe in the new house I can get her to put them in the washer??

Hey! The one year countdown for Disney will be here soon!!!! Yipeee!!!

Jeannine and Sophie

I love that UT jacket! It's adorable! Glad to see someone else loves orange as much as we do.
