I had to laugh at the anonymous comment I got this morning simply saying "fashion friday?" Heh. Yeah, yeah, I didn't post the fashion choices the kids made this week—mostly because TubaDad hopped on a plane five hours after getting home from Disneyland, leaving me alone with two amped-up what-do-you-mean-it's-still-raining little girls. But also because I figured my mom was the only one who really liked Fashion Friday. Anyhow, after confirming that the anonymous comment wasn't from her—because that is SO something she would do—I decided that I'm posting this week just for you anonymous. So here are the only two fashions I got pictures of this week (see aforementioned time constraints): In this first one, which was strategically positioned in front of the back yard, rather than IN it, because, as you'll notice in the picture, it was STILL raining, Ro is on the left and Ree is on the right. Frankly, I think Ro started with her new polkadot boots and composed her outfit from the feet up, but she's not talking, so who knows. And looking at these outfits, the origin of each piece of clothing is amusing. Let's take Ree's outfit, for example: new Hello Kitty top from Target, pink starred tutu skirt from Nordstrom, handmedown blue flowered Gymboree leggings from from H2/S2, and pink kitty boots purchased from Target over two years ago (I keep retiring them to the garage, and the girls keep sneaking out and rescuing them). In this second one, Ree is on the left and Ro is on the right. Ree went for her new favorite pink and white striped strawberry t-shirt from Crazy8 (the strawberry stuff is in the new spring line), a little pink Carter's shrug sweater, a pink cordoruy Hanna Andersson skirt and pink dotted Gymboree leggings (handed down from S2/H2), handknit pink socks made by Ma, and her new pink Polliwalks (her pink duck shoes and Ro's blue dinosaur shoes were purchased for a steal on the 6pm.com website, thanks to an alert by blog commenter Shannon). I like the interesting way Ro is wearing her sweatshirt top as a scarf on top of her shoulders and has turned the hood inside out and backwards to pull up over her head. Well that's it for Fashion Friday this week (I wish I could think of a clever way to say Fashion Saturday, but I am fresh out of cleverness, please help if anything comes to you!) We're off to soccer in a few minutes (more on that later if the class works out), so I need to throw my grimy body in the shower. Thank you for all the awesome comments on the lifebook post, and please keep them coming. I'll be working on that section throughout the week and will be back soon with some more information and the first "assignment" for anyone who wants to work on lifebooks alongside me.
