A busy Thursday...

Carseat Cover for my loves!, originally uploaded by mytwobabes.

It's 4:47pm here on Thursday afternoon, and I am just thinking what a busy day it has been!
Last night Mark called and said he would be out of town overnight. Well, you know what that means! I get to do 'girly stuff' all night! Sewing, Sewing, Sewing!

I decided it was finally time to use the material I bought for carseat covers for my girls. You know, I would love to have bought matching toddler carseats, but since discovering the price of that option, I decided to make covers for them myself! Of course I couldn't find one that I really liked, or that looked simple enough for a 'newbie' - so I made myself a pattern and went to sewing! I don't think they turned out too bad, but I am a little bias! :) The second one only took about 2 hours, and was WAY easier than the first!

This morning I had to go to MAI for a while to pick up some work, and after that went to Rivertown Mall for some happy shopping! Those who know me best know I am always looking for a great deal... I had one store in mind... GYMBOREE! I had one Gymbuck rewarded from a previous purchase of items for church, so I knew I had to take advantage of this! I was happily surprized to find that there was an additional sale on top of all the clearance items, so it was a day of great savings for me! I spent $27.00 dollars (actually $25.09 before tax, since I had to spend $25.00 to use the Gymbuck!) and in return, took home $122.00 worth of merchandise! That is a total of 10 items at about $2.70 each! This included the following shirt, which I LOVE, and is perfect for the coming Christmas parties!
