we grow em wild



My kids were ticked off that I didn't buy them the $4.oo ice cream cone that they wanted but instead opted for the cheaper old fashioned candy sticks @ the old store in Tortilla Flats.

What I liked most about the above scenario was that my daughter all of a sudden turned to her sister who was madly throwing a tantrum and said, "We get what we get and we don't throw a fit"...AWESOME.

We quote that all the time. I find it comes especially in handy when 5 year old wants just one more...cupcake!

Haha, I have a feeling that I'm going to need to remember that quote as my little girl gets older and develops more attitude. Love your girls' dresses!!

Oh how I love Tortilla Flats... that little nugget holds such a special place in my heart! But the prickly pear ice cream is really kind of spectacular... I'm just sayin'! ;-)

Christina! You made your girls dresses out of the same material you made you skirt - how darling! I did make my first visit to SAS, but never found the fabric. We are moving to the over to the Central Corridor, so I will be a hop, skip and a jump from SAS. I can pop in and look for fabric on a regular basis. I just need to learn to sew!

Thank you for your daily inspiration! Your blog and pictures make me so happy!

xo,

Jen
