Happy Birthday to Me, Part II

I finished knitting up my version of the Honey Cowl today. I gave it to myself. Didn't feel the need to wrap it.

Happy Birthday to Me, Part I

Hubby left his sunglasses at home so we went to Target to find a replacement pair. He gave these a firm NO.

New Blankie!

I purchased some flannel this summer for a baby blanket project. After cleaning up my craft room I realized I had enough for another. I also found some awesome red sock yarn I forgot I had that was too perfect to put off the obvious any longer.

So, tonight I whipped up a blanket perfect for fort building, burrito rolling, cape wearing, and anything else my little guy can think of. I hope he loves it for years to come!

Valentine Cards

Finished the little guys Valentine cards. Now one of us is ready.

Evening Yogurtini Run

If you were wondering...

The little guy got in on the fun, too. That is, until his brother tried to close the door on him...

Conferences Part 2

I guess this is one way to pass the time when your scheduled conference is running 30 minutes late. Can you guess who was dressed and ready for, "night-night time?"

Parent Teacher Conferences

Why does waiting for conferences feel like we have been sent to the principal's office?

Chevron Love

I can't seem to get enough chevron. After looking all over town for a new phone cover, I remembered one of my favorite bloggers, Rachel Shingleton of Pencil Shaving Studio, designed several covers for The Limited. When I found this bad boy I had to have it!

The Little Guy Has Mail!

My sister told me to expect a package in the mail and it arrived today. I'm pretty sure words aren't necessary to guess his reaction. Thanks, M, M, & E!

Basement is a Bit More Complete

Swapped out the old entertainment center for a newer old one. That corner of the room looks a little more put together and safer from tiny two-year-old hands.

Finally it Dawns on Me!

I was cleaning out my craft room this weekend, again. The room has become a dumping ground for everything that is mine and I finally got tired of the constant disorganization. There is a ton of space mind you. A good sized closet and a floor to ceiling bookshelf. It just felt like there was constant clutter. It got to the point that walking into the room started stressing me out. Then it dawned on me. After nearly two years living in our "new" home I finally came to my senses. The first thing I saw was a closet full of stuff and no door to close it! I stopped by Target after school today to solve the problem. A cheap tension rod and one super cute shower curtain later and VOILA! A punch of color (which I love and was desperately needed) and the clutter immediately disappeared. I am almost embarrassed about how easy this problem was to solve. Does this kind of thing only happen to me?

How I Spent my Sunday

Morning filled with sick kids, evening filled with movies, audio books and smooshy yarn.

Crayon failure

I always give my students a new box of crayons every quarter and let them take home the old ones. They are over the moon excited when I bring out boxes and boxes of crayons...until today. Poor kid. His reaction could only be compared to opening a gift from Santa and finding underpants. Naturally, I gave him another box.
