Then I remembered that all of you are awesome and you come here because you dig my chile. This was actually an expression I used as a teenager. Is it any wonder I was a geek? I actually thought that expression was cool. This is my face after I revealed my high school coolness to all of you...
But I remembered that I make being a geek...cool. You know it's true.
So I am good now.
On Sunday I got a craving for ice cream. And not any ice cream. I wanted GOLD MEDAL RIBBON ice cream from Baskin Robbins at Dunkin Donuts. Oh, that creamy vanilla and chocolate goodness wrapped in tons of sticky, gooey ribbons of caramel. Really, it is a sweet, scrumptious treat that is pleasure beyond reason.
And my girls agree.
I think Ella felt her girled out t-shirt with a glittery rainbow and hearts needed some edge so she browned it up with some chocolate. I like it.
On the pants too.
Even the shoes. Brand new shoes I might add. But whatever.
And chocolate kisses are always fun too.
So then I got to thinking. Do I have a tips? AHA! I remembered something from the weekend. Cati and I were playing tug of war with her dollar tree hoola hoop (Have I ever mentioned I often lack maturity and good old common sense?) Well the obvious happened. It broke.
But you know me. What can I do with this now that it is broken? So I did this...
A Canopy Made From a Hoola Hoop!
I was so excited! This is probably already out there but it was fun to imagine I am the only person on the planet to come up with this. All I used were sheer curtain panels, and some leftover tulle I had.
I peeled off the ribbon from the hoola hoop and taped the broken part.
If you want to try this without brilliantly breaking the hoop during tug of war, just take off the ribbon and pull it apart here. Then slide the panels on.
I don't think this should go over my mischievous daughter's crib but I thought it might work on a covered porch or even in the corner of one of the girl's room's as a little reading nook. We shall see what I come up with at the new house.
What do you think?
Hope you enjoyed this Tuesday's utter randomness! Hugs to all of you dear friends!
