Fashion “Friendly” Friday-How to Get More Use Out of Onesies

Happy Friday! For those of you who are reading this blog for the first time, Fashion “Friendly” Friday is where I show you how I’m turning my closet into an environmentally friendly wardrobe by learning to Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse.

This posting is a little different, let me explain. We’ve been pretty lazy about potty training Little Pumpkin Doodle, but after she had an accident on the sofa we decided to get it together.

We thought we were doing the right thing by asking LPD if she had to go potty and then encouraging her to use the potty by giving her praise. Even after all the praise, she continued to pee in her pull ups. It was no surprise when I picked her up from daycare last week that she was wearing a different outfit then what I put her in that morning.

Happy Friday! For those or those of you that have been reading, you know that I spent some time in Oregon and was thrilled by all the resale stores. If this is your first time stopping by, Fashion “Friendly” Fridays is where I’m trying to reduce, recycle and reuse my wardrobe to make it more green friendly.

Here’s what I found for Little Pumpkin Doodle during my stay.

The coral dress is Cherokee and is big for LPD, but should be perfect for next summer. It was $3.00 bucks in perfect condition.

Here’s a FANTASTIC way to recycle your child’s pajamas!

A few weeks ago while walking through the myriad of street fair vendors with Little Pumpkin Doodle (LPD), Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Bill. A woman stopped us to give LPD a bag of goodies. The volunteer was from Leez PJ’s 4 Kids– a non-profit that collects PJ’s for kids in need. [Read more…]

It’s Friday! This weekend we’re going to a birthday party, so yesterday Little Pumpkin Doodle and I went to Barnes & Noble to pick out a gift for my friend’s daughter, who will be turning 3.  As you know B&N is one of LPD’s favorite places, so once we arrived it was it was difficult to get her to leave. We managed to leave the store without a meltdown once hubby arrived. [Read more…]

Spring “Green” Cleaning

Yeah, it’s the first day of spring!  I usually celebrate by taking the day off of work and doing something fun outside, but not today. I’ve decided to do some Spring “Green” Cleaning. I don’t like clutter, so my hubby would tell you that I spring clean all year around.

For those of you who are reading this blog for the first time, Fashion “Friendly” Friday is where I show you how I will turn my closet into an environmentally friendly wardrobe by learning to Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse.

This week I wanted to show you what Little Pumpkin Doodle’s Nanna sent her from a resale store in Vermont. As soon as we arrived home after daycare Little Pumpkin Doodle spotted the package. Any package left on the door step in LPD’s world belongs to her.

Fashion “Friendly” Friday

I hope you’re ready for a nice weekend.  What are we doing this weekend?  Not much, hopefully we’ll go on “Jungle Ride!”  A jungle ride is what my dad called it when he put us kids in the car when he wanted to explore a nearby city. Usually we did things like going to an open house, horse back riding or driving until we ended up in Santa Barbara or Vegas.
