Friday is a Good Day.

I went shoe shopping yesterday. I actually went thrifting & bought TONS of Barbie stuff for my girls. My youngest is really starting to get into Barbie's with her sis & so I thought I'd treat them to tons of clothes, shoes & a few Barbies. I counted 22 pairs of shoes. Splitting them between my kidlets wasn't easy. Especially when I pulled out the high-heeled chrome-colored fancy schmancy shoes from the bag. It prompted an immediate wee cat-fight. The youngest finally got them after I bribed her older sister with HER choice of any pair of shoes left in the pile AND a fuzzy Barbie bathrobe.
In the stash of tiny outfits & such there were 36 lonely & pair-less shoes. It'll work out great for the girls' one legged Barbie. But I think I'll keep them & make them into a charm bracelet or something. I'm serious!

This morning was a slow-going kind of morning. Still in our jammies at 10am, we made pancakes. Peanut butter & syrup is my favorite topping. It's now 4pm & I JUST got bathed & dressed. HAHA! It's just one of those days. And I'm allowed "one of those days" every once in a while.

We're heading off to the park by the river now & the girls are anxious to ride bikes & roller skates. I'm bringing the camera for some fun outdoor & candid pics.

Oh poo! I jus thought of something. I have to come up with a dessert to bring over to some friend's of ours on Sunday. I was thinking of making the strawberry tart again, unless I get some sweet inspiration elsewhere...

Have a great weekend. I'll be helping my bro caulk the outside of his house this weekend & oh, Mr. WhiMSy love & I are baby-sitting tonight for some friends. Fun times.


  1. Nikki, seriously - you HAVE to make a charm of those shoes, it will be sooo cool. Just seeing that image makes me want to take out my barbies and play!


  2. My sisters and I loved Barbies! They just don't make the same cool clothes & shoes for them anymore-great idea to thrift for them!
