Hey! Guess what? I got a double jogging stroller! It's a bit older than the one pictured in my previous blog, and this one is blue, but it's the same brand & has all the same features. It came with the rain cover & was only $100, so I'm happy with it (but will still keep my eyes open for a red one!)

I got it last night, so I haven't used it yet...I will in a couple of hours. It came complete with a crying baby and a very excited (though not in this picture) toddler. Cool, huh?
I also went to the thrift store yesterday. I especially love the Wildcats shirt, because, you know, she's a bit of a wildcat. ha ha.

I got these coats to cut up and make little coats for the girls (one will be creme with camel accents and the other will be the opposite). I haven't found a pattern yet, though, so I can't start on that yet. The blue sweater is to cut and make wool soakers. Everything was $1 each (except the Melissa & Doug sewing cards - $3).

Inspiration coats...If you know of a pattern that is similar to either, please let me know!

The sheets weren't bought yesterday, but they will be nightgowns/jammies and dresses. Doesn't that floral just scream "50's retro girls summer party dress"? I love it. I passed it up and then had to make a trip back to buy it because I was pining for it.

You got wool coats for a dollar?!?!? Your thrift store rocketh! There is nothing that cheap here!

I would have gone back for the blue sheets, too!

Do you guys still have that table from the bachelor pad? We have the leaf in our garage...except we moved and have the house for sale. So if you still have the table and want to make it bigger, let me know. We'll get rid of it if you've found the table a new home.

Wow, I am totally jealous of your stroller. I want one so bad!
