99 cents, baby. 99 cents.

I've made a decision. So has Nancy. And the cool thing is, we made it unbeknownst to us that the other was making the same decision.

Life is too short to iron shirts.

I bought a cute new outfit over a month ago... brown capris and a blue button-down shirt. I brought it home from the store and washed it, only to have it come out of the dryer with permanent wrinkles. Shoulda worn it right off the hanger, but instead, it hung in my closet for 5 weeks, mocking me every time I looked for something to wear. Saturday, I decided it'd be perfect for Easter. Very robins-eggy, know what I mean? So Sunday morning, I dragged out the iron and the ironing board, and set Darren to ironing. (LOVE THAT MAN. He mops too. I have photos.)

Took forever to get the permanent wrinkles out of the pants. By the time he was starting on the shirt, I said, "ENOUGH! This is ridiculous! I'll wear a t-shirt!" And so I did.


Life's too short to iron shirts. I'll be taking mine to the 99 cent cleaners down the street....

Some other Easter photos for your viewing pleasure:

Our "aygs". (I never pronounce eggs "aygs", but for some reason, I did it over and over and over yesterday. Crazy talk.)

You're not gonna iron anymore? I don't know if I can continue to be your friend. Monday is ironing day. Every week. All items in the basket. I was busy last Monday and today. I'm beginning to hyperventilate.

I think I own an iron, but it has been a long, long time wince I actually used it. I wonder if it even works anymore...

I have an ironing lady. I haven't ironed in about 2 years. But my ironing lady is having surgery on Monday....she will be out of action for a few weeks....Lord, save me...I am going to have to iron (OR, I could just wear all my clothes that don't require ironing - that sounds likie a better plan)

ALK? DKK? IKK? Ooooh, it's INITIALS. I get it now :P

Great pictures :)

On the ironing? I rarely if ever do it. I have enough clothes that it's only required once every six weeks or so. When I DO iron, it's like going shopping. "Hey! I haven't worn this skirt in two months!!!" :D
