Here is proof that overbuying and hoarding fabric is a good thing. Three years ago I made Halley and Lucy Halloween t-shirt dresses. I had no idea that in a little over a year, a third girl would join this house of pink.
This year, I got them out once again, handed Lucy's down to Janey, Halley's down to Lucy and made Halley her own out of every last inch of the fabric. All three of them will still fit in them next year. Yay! Hello, parking lot pumpkin patch. We will see you again, dressed as that annoyingly matching family.
My favorite part about t-shirt dresses, is that they are so comfy and your littles can usually get about two years of wear out of them. When they get too short all you need is a pair of leggings to buy you some more time. Want to make your own? Here is a great tutorial. The Cherokee Perfect Tee's from Target are simply the best ever for this project. I stock up on them each time they go on sale.
Did you know that Dorothy's socks are blue?
But my four year old did.
Did you also know that you cannot substitute food coloring for fabric dye?
I tried. Anything to keep me away from Joann's on Halloween.
My hands are still blue. Lucy's feet are still all Smurfy. But the socks?
Not so much.
This was the Munchkin's original costume.
Crazy cute, right?
But the "garden gnome" costume from Target stole my heart.
Miss Cupcake will have to wait until next year.
Why is my daughter obsessed with squirrels?
I have no idea.
Mainly because we never, ever, ever see them in our neighborhood.
That is until the apple tree lured one in.
This little guy pretty much made Lucy's life.
A REAL SQUIRREL!!!!!

Mean mom said no.
Expanded grocery section.
Serve yourself water at Starbucks.
These are the things that make my life.
If you don't have a friend that you can be a super dorky Emoji texter with, I recommend you get one.
Mique is mine.
Don't be jealous of our mad skillz.
Or how we hate on broken iPhones.
She is a really great lunch buddy.
Especially since she'll treat you to one.
Since my pimento adventures, I have found a new reason to love those mysterious red pieces.
Welcome to our happy place.
My husband has Mondays off, and while the big girls are at school, this is where you will find us.
This is why we live here.
That, Pedro's Tacos, and
