A redo

Since I haven't been keeping up to date, it must be noted that Caroline will wear pants and shorts now, but more on that later.  She will still sport a skirt, especially when it is warmish outside.  I was looking throw Garnet Hill's kids clothing and saw a skirt that was $45 on sale.  ON SALE!  And I thought, as I do often, I could make that.  (for some reason I can't upload a pic of it, so click on the above link)

But this time I actually tried.  I went to the local thrift store and bought a few XL women's button down shirts.  I cut them off just below the arms, put in an elastic, made pockets out of the sleeves and cuffs.  This is what I came up with.  For less than $5.  And Caroline loves it.  She is sporting her swimming suit (or as she referred to it today, her zucchini) because we are off to swimming.  I have a few more tweaks but am happy with the finished product.

What did I do with my Friday night?

Well, I'll tell you.  SYTYCD is back.  And it is good.  Dreamy good.  And fun for the whole family.  Most of the time.  And tonight, Caroline and I watched the reveal of the top 20.  And it was dreamy.  Caroline digs it.  Eli actually digs it.  Caroline wants to rule this show.  As she puts it, "I love it so much I just can't stand it!"  Look at this dancer.

Isn't she marvelous?  And she was marvelous at her dance recital.  I think with a bit more technical training she is going to rock the stage of SYTYCD 2025.  Caroline's favorite is Caitlyn Lawson, jazz dancer.  I have quite a few faves.  Mostly girls and the guy from SLC.  He is awesome.  Any favorites?
