This week my baby girl weighs as much as...

A head of cauliflower -almost 2 pounds - and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended.

Yesterday I went to JoAnn Fabrics looking for some fabric to make curtains for the nursery. Purple is not a popular color for decorating, apparently. I finally spotted the PERFECT material in - where else but the special order section. It was close to the medium shade of purple on the walls and had different shades of purple polka dots in lines down the fabric. PERFECT! It would match the polka dots on the crib sheets AND the stripes on the wall.
Guess how much it cost. $40 a yard! Yeah right I'm paying that much! I wasn't even about to pay the $20 per yard sale price. I quickly hung the fabric swatch back on the rack. Then a Christmas Miracle took place. Okay, not really a Christmas Miracle, but something really fantastic...I spotted that exact material in the remnants sale bin. There were two yards there and the price was half off of the current price, so I bout it for $10 a yard - a grand total of $20. Seventy Five Percent Off, people! I was stoked! The perfect curtains for $20. Go me! Now I just have to sweet talk my mom in to sewing them for me - I mean, for her first-born grandchild.
