Red Plaid Ribbons

I found these red plaid ribbons at Walmart recently, but didn't buy them. I might eventually — if I can think of something to do with them. Even so, it's nice to know they're out there in case I need them.

Hello Kitty Cap

I saw this cap at a Toys R Us store back when I was in Spokane last month. Even though I prefer red plaid, I thought this was a cute hat, especially with the shiny sequins going around it. What little girl wouldn't love a pink plaid Hello Kitty cap!

After taking our cat to the vet today, I ran into the Salvation Army while Rick stayed in the car and cat sat with Kitty. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but wanted to have a quick look around since the store is right across the street from the vet office. I sort of have a routine of regular places I check in the store, and the juniors' section is usually last on my list, if at all. I'm so glad I stopped today.

I found these red plaid pants hanging right on the end of a rack. Red plaid sticks out like a sore thumb to me, so I spotted them right away. I was a little disappointed when I saw they were a size nine. I haven't worn a size nine in a long time. Probably the last time I did was right between having my girls and my boys. I think I got back down to a nine around that time. However, they were just way too cute to pass up, and since they only cost $2.25, I figured I'd get them. It was more wishful thinking that I'd get down to that size again eventually.

Anyway, when I got home and tried them on, I couldn't believe it — they fit! Well, just about. I've put on a few pounds these past few months, so a lot of my pants are a little snug right now. Once I get back down to where I was, they will fit perfectly. What's even nicer is that they're made in this century! I have another pair of red plaid pants that had to have been from the 1980's. Those pants have a high-waist and stir-ups, so I cover that up with longer tops and boots. The pants I found today have a low-waist and a slight flare to the leg. Made my day ... to say the least.

Little Girl's Plaid Dresses

I saw these two dresses at a Toys R Us awhile back and thought they were just the cutest things. I miss having little girls, but I have to admit, my girls had all sorts of adorable outfits, including plaid dresses.

Sleepy Plaid Kitty

I had my head on my pillow this morning when I turned to the side and saw this. He is such a clown, and apparently, he likes my plaid pillowcase as much as I do.

Long Time, No Plaid ...

I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long, but considering I don't have many followers on here, I guess it doesn't really matter. I also apologize for the silly picture of myself looking in my dirty bathroom mirror. I generally hate these types of pictures. They seem so corny. However, had I asked Rick to take one for me, I'd just end up laughing, or glaring, or doing something even worse.

I found this plaid skirt at the Salvation Army awhile back. It actually has attached shorts inside it, which is something I'm really into right now. It's a little different plaid for me because it's mostly red, orange, and yellow. I prefer the tartan plaids, but thought this was kind of cute. It would probably go better with whites or reds, but I had black on last night.

Little Red Plaid Riding Hood

I love the story of Little Red Riding Hood. I saw these marionette puppets at a Toys R Us store in Spokane, Washington recently. I thought they were really cute, but of course, Grandma's plaid outfit was really got my attention!

Plaid Leggings

I love the look of these leggings, even though I'm not really into the heavy-duty, super punk look. Having said that, if I ever come across some, I'm sure I'd buy them. I found these — click here — on eBay and totally love them!

A fedora and a bikini ...

I like both of these — but probably not together — I'm funny that way.
