So, thanks to Jen at New Green Mama, Ella and I went to the Goodwill yesterday to scout out some dress up clothes. Jen had posted the other day that she made a killing at the Goodwill and found some great dress up clothes for her daughter. Since we had not been there in a while we headed on over to see what we could find.
As luck would have it, Thursday was 50% off children's clothes day. Could this get any better? I found these two beautiful dresses for $2.50 each. The second dress still had the tags on it to boot!
Since Ella doesnt nap anymore, after she has her quiet time in her room, I have been having a movie time with her in my bed. That way I get a little rest, if I happen to have work to do while she is in her room and we can just sit and snuggle while watching Care Bears, Dora or the Little Mermaid.
Well I put her in my bed yesterday and told her I would be right in. I was taking the pictures of the dresses on thier hangers. 5 minutes later she walks out, with this sweet little voice. "Mommy, what are you doing?" I stood there and just froze. Instantly I thought, "Well there goes my nap time!".....because the next thing she said with all the hope she could muster in her face is, "Can I wear one of those princess dresses?" So I let her pick one and outside we went to go rock collecting.
I dont know why, but as I was processing them in PS, I felt that alot of them called for a little desaturation. The softer pinks sort of called to me yesterday, I guess.
Thanks for the inspiration Jen!
