My little family went out tonight in search of new beds. Gregg and I are sleeping on an ancient mattress. And I'm embarrassed to admit this, but Violet is sleeping on a mattress that's just a few years shy of the Ice Age. So, um, we've really been needing to do this for some time now.
The temps today were slowly dropping and I knew that it'd be quite cool while we were out. So, I dressed Violet in her dressy winter outfit tonight. Why? Because it was the only thing clean, that's why. You got a problem with that? I didn't think so! Sorry, I've been watching too many mob shows lately.
I'm really not procrastinating on our laundry. Honestly, I'm not! Our dryer is on the fritz and we're waiting on the repair guy to come tomorrow. I have a small mountain of laundry to work on once things are working properly. It'll be wonderful to have a working dryer again.
Okay, now back to Violet's dressy outfit. The shirt has a pretty butterfly on the chest with a short tu-tu at the base of it and it's worn over black leggings. It's tu-tu cute! Sorry, I can't help myself. Somebody, please stop me! Anyways, Violet is like any little girl that puts on an outfit like this, she has to twirl around and dance. Well, Violet doesn't have the best rhythm. She's not as bad as the Elaine Benes character was from Seinfeld (played by Julia Louis-Dryfus). After all, Violet doesn't do the full-body seizure like dance that Elaine does. Unfortunately though, Violet's dancing is not too far from it.
I know I'm going to pay dearly for posting that photo but I just couldn't help myself. (I seem to have impluse control issues tonight.) Violet did start to improve her dance moves before I put the camera away. Whew!
Look at the joy on that kid's face! I paid a little more for that outfit than what I normally pay for clothes but it was SO worth it!!! Violet had an extra spring in her step tonight and every few steps consisted of a twirl. She had so much fun in her new outfit and Gregg and I had a blast watching her skip and twirl the night away.
