Clothes shopping with a serve of fried wontons… And a patch or two

Today I went clothes shopping, a task I have tried to avoid since Squeak was born. She is 15 months old now, and I desperately needed new clothes. I tended to buy cheap t-shirts from Kmart, and I had bought 2 pairs of jeans that fell down way too much. We went to DFO in Essendon, as  we hadn’t been shopping there in close to a year. We started in Rivers, a clearance outlet. I picked out 5 long sleeved t-shirts, and a thick dark pink waterfall cardigan. We then poked around in a few shops, and in typo as they had large scrabble tiles to make names. I would have bought Squeak’s name, but disappointingly they had no A. I would have loved it for her room, as I am slowly re-decorating it for her.

I then tried on a pair of jeans with a higher waist in Jeanswest. We were the only customers in the shop, and the assistant was lovely and she was quite knowledgeable about the fit of jeans, which is great as my body is quite lumpy and bumpy since I had Squeak. I have so much trouble finding jeans as I don’t like skinny leg jeans. I ended up buying 2 pairs in a dark denim.

When we got home I made pork wontons with chips in the Philips Airfryer. I have made chicken wontons before and steamed them, and have tried them fried years and years ago.

Before and After Air Frying

I didn’t get a pic of the chips, I will have to next time! They go soooo quick, and they are really good. They are a favorite in the Mopar household.

I also managed to snap a pic of Squeak’s baby quilt so far

It is 6 inch squares, alternating between nine patch and fussy cut butterfly squares. I have had a jungle theme in her room, but am considering switching to butterflies as I love this fabric soooo much. Squeak loves it and when she sees it she wants to play with it, even tho it isn’t finished. I’m still going to try to finish it by the end of the weekend. It has been an unfinished project for far too long.

Do you have unfinished projects?

Lots of love,
