Today I'm taking a personal day just for the hell of it. I started off the day with Hulk sleeping until 7:30 (glorious) and then picking up a free Boppy pillow from someone on my local twins group. My GPS said her street didn't exist, my iPhone GPS thingie couldn't find her either, and I ended up being sent north to go south. Whatever. But I did find a Taco Bell nearby (I know, I know, Taco Bell is gross but I love their bean burritos with a white hot passion). And then I got a coffee and they had apple fritter donuts. Hurrah.

I'm now going to work on the wallpaper for an hour or so, and then take the dog to the vet (he is totally overdue for his shots, poor, neglected dog).

I'm also planning on visiting a sewing buddy who is going to help me decide how to make my own swaddles. I know that you can use blankets as swaddles, but in the middle of the night, those velco/fleece swaddles that come in the set with the sleepsacks (Halo SleepSack) are so quick and easy! Thing is, I found I was using only the swaddle part, not the sleep sack part. And the whole set is like $20, and I can't seem to find a place to buy them separately. So, I'm going to try and figure out if I can sew some myself. I want to have 4 or 6, so if they get dirty and I haven't done laundry, I've got some. So, if it's possible to make them for less than $80 - I'm going to do it. And not make the tag blanket mistake. Sure, I made them cheaper than I could buy them. But I spent about $100 on supplies, and made about 20 blankets. So $5 a blanket, but do I really need 20 of them!!?!?!

So crafty!

Only one of my kiddos like the swaddle blankets, so don't go over board on things, because they both might not like it.

Give the extra tag blankies as gifts for other babies. All the babies I have seen love those. Hope you have a great weekend.

I think Frieda just beat me to what I was going to say. Give the tag blankets as gifts (you can even gift 2 per baby, if you don't know 20 people having babies soon ;) ).
