…well, not really the dead. But it does seem appropriate for this time of year, no? I. Am. So. Sorry!!! This year has been crazy. I got so caught up with work that I have not done anything that has to do with knitting. Seriously. And I seriously miss it! It's fall!! Sweater weather!! And […]

2010 Goals

I think I probably had some goals for last year, but darn it if I didn't accomplish any one of them. In fact, I think my goals changed so rapidly throughout the year, that I ended up so far away from where I expected in the beginning. I'm not complaining, though. We get opportunities and […]

As most of you know, I've trying to move to the city now for the past several months. I rented my house and my friend was in the process of trying to rent her condo in Schaumburg so we could move in together in the city. Well, folks, after many months, we are in the […]

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. I've been a bad blogger and knitter. I still have the tweedy jacket that needs to be finished, and some baby stuff. I'm bad. But I have been productive otherwise. I've started training with a personal trainer. He kicks my butt every time I go to the gym to see […]

Happy Halloween 2009!

I couldn't let Halloween go by without showing off Yoda's costume of the year! This year she was a frog/turtle. I'm almost positive it's supposed to be a frog because I think that's what it said on the package. However, once I got it on her, it looked a lot like a turtle body. Eh! […]

The second day (Friday) in San Francisco brought my sister and I to spend $50 on breakfast. And let me tell you, this was one fabulous breakfast! I had a bloody mary (don't judge me! I was on vacation!) and a crab stuffed omelet covered in hollandaise sauce. My sister had Eggs Benedict, but instead […]

I have been absent for a long time. I know I said I was going to be more consistent, but I must tell you that my life has been crazy lately. You've all heard how I have a crazy commute to the city, so I decided to do something about it. I've managed to rent […]
