Madras plaid golf pants rehab

I don't know if I mentioned it but this is a busy time of year for our family.  Last week was spring break, then Easter, followed by Chris' birthday.  In celebration of my beloved's day of birth we took a trip down to Indianapolis, just the two of us... and who sings that song?  anyone..... no fair checking... okay I admit it, I had to check myself to find out.  But I am sure Chris knows, cause he's smart like that!  Seriously, he never ceases to amaze with the things he knows.

Oh sorry!  That would be Bill Whithers!  Man, I love the sax solo in this song!

What did we do in Indy?  Why a bit of goodwilling!  Yep you heard correctly.... we went from Goodwill shop to Goodwill shop.  Some were crossed off our list of return locations but other were true gold mines.
Chris came away with some seriously nice shirts and khakis.  But seriously I think I am the one who made out like a bandit! I mean look at these.....
Don't you wish you had a pair just like them?!
(They are men's which about did me in!! )
(& i forgot to take a picture before i hacked the legs off so i had to set them back together.)

But do you want to see what they look like now?
Seriously, aren't you the least bit curious?

Okay.... here are the new, revised madras plaid golf pants....

And do you know what?  My 18 year son came out of his room and gave me the highest compliment....
"Cool bag, Mom!"  

And I finally got to use the flowers I made over a year ago.... now if only I could remember how to make them again.

Have a blessed day,
