Back to the 60s

My sister, Kristi, took part in a 1960s-themed birthday party for one of her DMACC instructors. So she got the urge to make a tie-dye T-shirt for the big event.

Neither one of us had ever made a tie-dye shirt. But my husband had a little experience with it and said he would help. Kristi bought a $20 tie-dye kit at Wal-Mart and a couple of white cotton T-shirts. She was surprised at how easy it was to dye the shirts. Just fill up a couple of squirt bottles with dye, twist up the shirts and apply the color.

Kristi did a great job with her first-ever tie-dye project.

I was super busy making pickles last weekend, so Josh went ahead and made this shirt for me. So unique.

On a completely unrelated note, I drove up to LeMars today for a story, and I absolutely had to stop at the Blue Bunny ice cream visitors' center. Believe it or not, this was a single scoop of my fav flavor, Bunny Tracks.

Love the ribbons of fudge, caramel and the peanut butter-filled chocolate bunnies. I ate this whole cone on my 3-1/2 hour drive from home. Boy, did I get sleepy! But so worth it.
