A Simple Jeans Refashion

It’s been a little over 2 months since I had Elanor and I have reached that size where my pregnancy jeans don’t fit and my pre-pregnancy jeans are… well, let’s just say small.

After dropping Sarah off at Mothers Day Out this morning I made a quick stop at Goodwill to try and find some in-between jeans. After trying on a few racks (and finding out what size I am NOT) I left with 2 pairs of pants. I’m wanting jeans I can wear with my boots or flats, so the skinny jean/tight ankle look was what I was searching for. 1 pair was just that, and the other was a wide straight leg. My mom helped me fix that problem right up. There’s nothing a mom and sewing machine can’t fix ;)

I actually thought to take a before picture so I could share the transformation. Check it out.

They (and 1 other pair I got) fit perfectly with boots. I’m slowly getting used to this skinny jean fashion… just in time for it to probably go out of style ;)

After a successful day of jean re-fashioning the girls and I picked up Stephen and on our way home the car decided to die on the interstate. We were on the I-10 bridge, which if you are local you know it can be a crazy fast and dangerous spot, and the lights started to dim. We JUST made it off the bridge and Stephen pulled off onto the shoulder.

About 40 minutes later my dad picked me and the girls up and took us back to my parents house. Stephen waited for the tow truck and is figuring out a game plan as I type this. Hopefully it’s an easy fix. Our car has really been giving us a run for our money the past year… thankfully it’s always been an easy’ish fix.

I sent him this picture and then he facetimed with Sarah just before she went to bed. Modern technology can be incredible at times!

I guess I will get to try out my new jeans tomorrow since I didn’t plan on staying the night away from home. Pray we have an easy (and cheap) car fix tomorrow!
