Why yes I did get my lovely new sweater for one dollar. Thanks for asking. And yes, I am wearing it today because I am going back to school. Today is my first day of school, it's been 2 years since I have had one of those, and 5 years since I have had a first day at a NEW school! So anyways, I got some cute "work / professional / cute" clothes from H& M yesterday (thanks mom for the bday giftcard) for pretty cheap. And I still have money left on the card. but the sweater in question (for a dollar) was on sale at Gottschalks, and it's been in my closet waiting until school starts to be worn. WEll, today is that day folks, school has begun (well at 4 pm, but you get the picture).
Oh and Mom, I would have made you proud last night. I got out the ironing board (hadn't used the big one yet, so I had to take the plastic wrap off) and ironed my new clothes. The skirt has 2 layers, an inside solid black layer, and an outer semi-opaque striped layer. So I had to iron the inner layer first, then the outer, and then finally the waistband. Wow! I also pulled out other things that looked wrinkled and ironed them. I figured I might as well take advantage of the iron / board out opportunity. Thankfully Matt paints, so he doesn't need any work clothes painted! haha
That's it for now. I have some pictures of the Casserole that I made Sunday (maybe our kid will be Cassie too, like Mama's firstborn was supposed to be... but Katie, I think you are a much better Katie, not a Cassie at all!), so maybe I will post those later.
