Wow, just wow!

Yesterday was a SUPER fun day!  My sister and got up so early to drive to Bellevue for the kids sale.  We weren’t as early as we have liked, but next year we will first in line.  We have been planning on going since the sale in October last year.  SO this year was great.  It as the nicest day of the year, so standing in line was really nice.

The sale itself was just as fun and hectic as last year.  I missed out on a whole bunch of toys and furniture ’cause I ran straight for the trainers and shoes first.  I found the BEST trainers that I will never ever be able to get my hands on again.  They are from Japan.  I also found a whole bunch of Hello Kitty for Lilli’s room.  I had so much stuff when we were checking out and I was worried that I would go over my budget, since I really hadn’t totaled anything in line.  I didn’t thankfully and had a lot left over to have fun with at the Green Festival.

After the sale we headed over to the Green Festival.  We were both STARVING and headed right over to the food area.  I tried the vegan sausage, which was yummy.  I was still hungry and got a veggie burrito.  We sat down next to the funniest guy who had some really great ideas and he will be having a revised book of his coming out this summer some time!  So I was now stuffed and very happy.  We headed over to the booths and started sampling teas and chocolate.  That was kind of hard since I had just stuffed my face.

I was super excited to see three booths of cloth diapers and of course headed right over.  I encountered the rudest/stupidest girl at the BG booth.  I haven’t really decided what she was yet.  She got right in my face and asked if I had heard of clot diapers.  Haha.  I told her yup, we already cd!  Instead of saying great or yay, she was like” oh”.  Literally, “oh”.  Sorry that you couldn’t convert me, sheesh.  So then she goes, “WELL these are the BEST diapers EVER”(exact emphasis btw).  I smiled and said “I think they would be the best if they had snaps instead of aplix”.  She smirked and said, “well that’s pretty much never going to happen”  Ok then.  I told her I really didn’t appreciate how she was treating me and turned and walked over to the Fuzzi Bunz booth.  I happily bought 3!  The new style is weird and I took pictures of sizing if anyone was wondering.  I spent a little time telling the lady the observations that I had with them.  I then headed over to the booth that was being run by my local cloth diaper shop.  Nothing too interesting over there.  Textile prefolds.  Yuck.

My sister and I walked around for another 3 hours, got TONS of samples and were pretty much exhausted.  We made it through the whole place and ran back through to get a few more of the bigger sized samples and buy some fair trade coffee and tea.  i found some shoes that I am going to get and a few clothing companies that I want to check out as well.

I will try and update with some pictures a little later.

  1. You SUCK! I wish we had a green festival. The only thing “green” we have around here is the grass. Ugh… Louisiana sucks for green fun. I’m so jealous.
