Party Time!

Its Party Time!
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

So, I may be showing up a couple days late, but I'm ready to party! who am I to turn down a party that sounds like so much fun?! What a great opportunity to meet new blogging friends. I've got the jello shooters!! The party started on Friday and goes until the 16th. Who wants to join me? Make sure you check out 5 Minutes For Mom!

I am supposed to tell you a little bit about myself, so here goes nothing!

My name is Ashley and I've been married to my wonderful husband for almost 3 years! He and I both currently work for his family's company - but it's only temporary for me. I've been on the waiting list for our local nursing program for 2 1/2 years!! As soon as my number comes up - I'm going back to school! In the meantime I've become a craft junkie! I discovered my love for yarn crafts a few years back and have been hooked ever since (no pun intended). In addition to knitting and crocheting, I do a lot of cooking and baking. I truly believe that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I try and post recipes and pictures of my baking endeavors here on my blog.

My husband and I actually had 2 weddings which were almost exactly a year apart. You can read about them here, here, and here.

Even though our parents like to bring it up every chance they get... we don't have any kids. I've got to finish school first, that's the plan at least. We do however, have the most wonderful dog! She's my little Izzie pup and she stole our hearts from the minute we brought her home. She was a rescue dog from the pound - I truly believe she knows it and is more appreciative because of it. She is my little shadow, always in my lap or following me around the house. She is incredibly spoiled and yes, she does sleep up on the bed with us. She gets half the bed and my husband and I share the other half ;-)

Last year I started an etsy shop where I sell some of my knit & crochet items: Knots by Ashley. I blog about them a lot on here and share some of my original patterns.

My other loves include the Lord, black tea, Yoga, movies, dance, red wine, crime shows, and lazy-do-nothing-days.
Thank you for stopping by! I would love to read your blog as well, so be sure to leave a comment and have fun!! :)
