Ugh, I'm going to have a hard time posting these pictures, because I'm mad at Sadie right now. I told her to let Micah play with a toy of Gage's, because Gage is napping, and she gave me the worst stinkface look ever.
She's in her room.
I'm so glad I only have one girl. Oh the drama.
There's a really sweet gal in my ward who sometimes goes through her daughter's old stuff and gives it to us for Sadie to wear. I'm always really appreciative, because Sadie doesn't have an older sibling from whom to get hand-me-downs. When she grows out of a size, we have to go buy her a whole bunch of new clothes. It's a killer. With my boys, with the exception of Dylan, if they grow out of clothes, I open up the box labeled with the next size up.
Anyways, she gave Sadie some pants, shirts, and dresses that are just her size, and I was sooo excited. This dress had some damage, but I was determined to revitalize it, and I did, with minimal cost:
But I was really proud of myself. The whole re-vamp cost about $10. Which maybe is not that provident, because I could probably buy a dress at Wal-Mart for $10.... But whatever. Sadie was thrilled with it and wore her ensemble the entire day yesterday. To church and beyond. (To infinity and BEYOND!!)
And then here am I with my completely improvident ensemble for church yesterday. I did get the dress with my birthday money, but I actually bought the accompanying shoes and earrings. Which is improvident. But sometimes a girl wants to wear pretty things. Am I right, or am I right?
Accept your body, Kar. You've had four and a half kids. The jig is up. It's okay.
Sorry. Had to give myself a teeny little pep talk there.
But look at these really cute earrings:
Parenthetically, when Ben refers to these shoes as hooker shoes, it's a compliment. These shoes make him very, very happy. :)
All I need now is a nice, green, chunky, long necklace to complete the look. That's what I think. I'm on the hunt.
