Life Lately

My free time has been consumed by studying and housework, bleh! I have been able to squeeze in some fun things though. Over the weekend we were dog sitting for a family friend and had 3 dogs (plus us and our cat) in our 3 bedroom house. It was a little crowded, but they were easy dogs, and Izzie sure liked the company!

On Friday night after work, I went by Victoria's Secret to pick up my free undies (I love when I got those coupons in the mail!). Of course I can't just walk out of there with only the free item, I had to spend some too of course, it's not often I go to the mall. In addition to the free undies I got a new pair of plaid comfy PJ pants and a much needed new bra. Maybe its just me, but there's something magical about a new bra that actually fits! No constant tugging or adjusting, plus it makes me feel sexy and there's nothing wrong with that, right? ;-)

While we were out shopping we got a call from Brandon's parents who invited us out to dinner with them. We tried a new tapas restaurant inside of Nordstroms called Blue Stove. In one word - yum! My favorite dish was the lemon scented risoto with french beans and scallops. Delicious. Sorry, I forgot my camera at home =(

I was able to squeeze in a couple crochet projects this weekend too. I made another Bella Swan (Twilight) inspired hat in grey. I haven't had a chance to take pictures of it yet - soon! I also made and adorable baby size pumpkin hat! Since I think using dolls as models is kinda creepy, I borrowed my friend's baby, Jackson, to model it for me:
Isn't he a cutie pie? Such a happy-go-lucky little boy. The hat is for 0-3 months, and he's 4 months. So it was a little snug, but we made it work. It's usually folded up at the bottom for a cuff:

In between memorizing crazy pharmacology terms such as Prochlorperazine, and Diphenhydramine (about 50 total) I made a few more flower facial scrubbies when I needed a study break. Oh! I also sold 4 items this weekend! yay!

On Sunday night we had our parents and family over for a "breakfast for dinner" dinner. We had pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns - the works! We all ate in our pajamas (I wore my new ones from VS of course!) and watched cartoons. It was a lot of fun! Once again, I forgot to take pictures. I'm terrible, aren't I??

I took the day off work yesterday to catch up on homework, housework, and to go into my mom's classroom for crochet club. The kids have made a lot of progress since the last time I was there! 3 of them are finished and ready to start a new project!

Now, I'm trying to fight the afternoon slump. Have a great evening all! Wish me luck for my test tonight =D


  1. The baby looks adorable in the pumpkin hat which came out so cute.

  2. Good luck on your test!!!

    That's an adorable hat and Jackson is doing such a great job modelling with it! :)

  3. Love the pumpkin hat! And, I love your new photos with your signature. :-) Congrats on your sales!!!

  4. Thank you all =D

    Libby - I knew you'd notice the pictures! That was another thing I worked on this weekend. Updated a lot of them in my etsy store.
