Time to Play Catch Up

Hello fellow bloggers!

I feel like I've been neglecting my blog a bit yesterday. I really love reading everyones posts and seeing their pictures, but I've been slacking on my own posts lately.

In home improvement news: we got our new fridge!! It is amazing! It's so funny that I'm excited over a fridge, never did I did think I'd be excited over an appliance =P It's a stainless steel, energy efficient, double door fridge with a pull out drawer freezer on the bottom. HUGE upgrade from the 13yr old one we've been using. We already went to Costco to stock it up!

Also, we hired a gardener. My husband cutting the lawn every 2 weeks (which was often almost 3) was just not cutting it, literally! They came for the first time last week and our yard has NEVER looked this good since we got the house in January! They weeded, trimmed, edged, mowed, everything! Worth every penny.

In crochet news: I finished the green mitts for a swap, and I made an adorable pink baby sweater! (Brie, both yarns used were from you!) I have no idea why I made it, but I was just feeling a quick and cute project other than my typical slouch hat. I think it will be one that I'll stash in the back of the closet for a few (3-4) years. It's just way too cute and I love the fun buttons. Now I somehow need to whip out 4 more afghan squares by the end of the month. That will be the last of them, but I can't find the motivation for those lately!

Remember my puff striped hat pattern? I've gotten a lot of great feedback on it from Ravelry peeps! Every time someone queues it or makes it, I do a little jig! Makes me really happy to share it with others, and the fact that they like it is even better!!

This week I went back through all of my old posts and created tags. Hopefully this will lead to a new blog layout in the near future. I also went back and edited my old post about the boho pendant necklace to include directions on how I made it! Let me know if you make one too - I'd love to see pictures!

I've been loving all the season premiers on TV lately! So excited that my favorite shows are back! Anyone watch The Office last week? Grey's Anatomy this week!!

Last but not least, have I mentioned that I'm starting a crochet club for my mom's 6th graders?? Tomorrow will be the first day and I'm really excited to teach them! They all seem very excited too as they already brought in the necessary supplies weeks before I was scheduled to come in. Many of them are already planning to make hats and scarves to raise money for their outdoor school trip!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know I did. Plus, I have tomorrow off! yay! g'night all!
