i cut up another of the hub's cast-off shirts last week. this print was too cute NOT to make an outfit for the bean with:
right? it's so fun and tropical, and i always loved when the hub would bust out of his conservative box and wear something colorful like this. i also dig the idea of having the bean wear garments made out of her daddy's gear. so after perusing the pictures on the tutorial i used for her last shirt dress, i got to work. slicing into those shirts still freaks me out a little.
and roughly an hour or so later, i had this:
i got her to try the top on for me, but she was being extra silly and i couldn't get the skirt on her for all the lollipops in the world.
i was more successful the next day, when she was more receptive to the outfit switching. "ta-da!" she said.
i even got her to try on the original shirt dress, finally hemmed properly. actually, i think it's a little too short now, but i can always put shorts underneath.
remember the passes for a free movie screening that the teen scooped up at the book festival? well, it was last week. we arrived at the americana super early (like, 2.5 hours before showtime), anticipating a line-up. of course, there was no such thing:
so we did a little shopping and then stopped for overpriced (but yummy) crepes.
the movie was cute, something MIL would totally enjoy. not a single cuss word that i can recall, pretty scenery, cheesily predictable story line. we liked it, but i'm glad it was a freebie. i'd probably have rented it from redbox in a month. heh.
and, this has nothing to do with anything at all, but the girls and i got a little gift from FIL:
in-n-out lip balm! there's strawberry shake, chocolate shake, pink lemonade, and...uh, i forget the fourth one. they smell and taste yummy, and i always dig silly novelty items like this.
lastly, vote vote vote, please! i'm getting my ass kicked right now. so sad. it all ends tonight, and while i may not necessarily have the very best top of the bunch (of course, i think so, but i'm biased), it would be super duper fun to win.
