So un-politically correct. 
I know.
Sorry, that is just what I call this wardrobe staple.
I wear at least one every single day.  
I have drawers of them.
They are my uniform.
But I think I might have to call them something else.
Because when I told my mom that I just bought some 
wife beaters for her innocent granddaughters she gasped in horror.  
Sorry Mom.

New code word: Tank Tops.

Because I suppose something this cute can't have such an ugly name.
These cute non- wife beating, tank tops are from Target and 
here is an easy tutorial on how you can add sweet little wings to the sleeves.

  5. My great grandma used to add ruffles to our tanks. She had a special saucer she used, and it sat on the kithen window sill. Thank you for reminding me of that sweet memory. Off to find a saucer to make Gina a few.

  6. I was gonna say I couldn't wear a wifebeater cause *I* have wings!! Then I noticed you added wings to one!! Hahahaha!!
    I just call them tank tops. I have only ever heard them referred to a wifebeaters by my husband and that was about a white one for men. I learned all kinds of lingo from him. Do I thank him or not??

  9. I have to stop myself from calling them that too.

    And that reminded me of when a relative told her daughter to "go put on some thongs" and she goes, "Mom! They're called flip flops now! I don't wear "thongs"".

  12. those are so cute...i have to make some!!

    and about 100 other things too.
    ugh.
    i wish i could just go go go and not have to sleep.
    or catch up on all my sleep in a 24 hour period. go for 6 days then sleep 24 hrs. i think that is a great idea.
    but i think i love my bed to much to leave it for 6 days straight.

    :)
    thanks for another great idea.
