Just wanted to post a last minute reminder that Chipotle Mexican Grill (follow the link to find one near you!) is once again giving away a free burrito to anyone dressed as a burrito (ie wearing tin foil) or anything else Chipotle-ish after 6 PM on October 31st (that’s tomorrow!)  They are super yummy and huge. Last year (click to see our get-up) our catch of five burritos fed our little family for *two* meals!  Warning, though: if you’re planning on coming to the one in our neck of the woods, it may be standing room only, because we’ve talked at least three other families into joining us!

Secondly, another money-saving tip:  We are not hard-core sports fans by any stretch, but it’s hard not to be a little enthusiastic when your local baseball team makes it into the World Series for the second year in a row!

So, if you happen to be a fair-weather fan like me, you might be wondering whether it would be a little extravagant to own team-specific garb for your kiddos.  I certainly wouldn’t have  bought the girls all Phillies shirts just to wear for the one week of the year that we’re all excited about the Phillies, but we happened to have two outfits for the little ones that came to us as gifts.

What to do with the big girls?

Normally, I’m all about making my own printable iron-on transfer T-shirts, but I didn’t have two shirts I wanted to permanently turn into Phillies shirts.   Then I thought about ironing Phillies logos onto the *inside* of the shirts and putting them on inside out, but it wasn’t without its problems…

Then it hit me: Phillies logo *stickers* on T-shirts!  And that’s just what I did.  I printed off two half page Phillies logos on a full-sheet address label page, cut them out, stuck them on, and voila!  My girls are baseball fans now.


You’d never know they aren’t ironed on, and when the baseball craziness is over, we’ll just peel them off!  So if the Eagles make it into the Super Bowl, and you see our girls in gray Eagles shirts, you’ll know where those came from, too (though I’m not at all sure their Daddy would allow that!)

  1. I think you may be my new hero! The Phillies shirts are ingenious!! I am going to try it but I am a severely impaired at this kind of stuff! Your blog always makes me smile!

  2. Thank you so much for your tip about Chipotle. My family thought I was a little nuts when I threw the role of foil in the car as we headed out to the Saturday evening service, and I wasn’t convinced I would get them all to go along with me, but when we saw the crowd of other foil wrapped people waiting for free burritos, they gladly joined in. What a deal! $42 worth of burritos free.

    Thank you, thank you!
