This is a toss up for me, I really love the #38 the pinstripe, I think a whole blanekt of this square would be realy modern looking. Then I really love the #11 flower from the Gran Garden! [email protected]

Mondays can be sort of trying, can't they? My Mondays are filled with early morning Latin lessons, driving to and from Detroit, working and then late night study sessions. So I try and find little things that make the somewhat dreary and lackluster day go by faster. - green juices - raw veggies + fruit = a breakfast I don't feel ad about. - listening to my favorite music rather loudly as I cruise down 96 - how happy and well behaved my dog is after I let her run for three miles and how much better I feel. -...

Quite possibly the best five dollars I spent this weekend. It's been a long summer, but fall is here and I finally cut back on my hours at work, so I feel less stabby towards the world and much more lovey dovey. You want a hug? Continue reading

Hello again. It's me the terrible, no good, can't commit blogger. (I seriously just let out a huge sigh). I've been thinking a lot this week about why I continue to pay for this space, why it is one of my homepages and why I continue to make lists about the things I want to write about, yet never actually sit and write. It's an elephant in the room. This summer has been a remarkably good one for me. I've felt closer than ever to my true self, the person, the adult I am. I've struck out on my own... Continue reading

Just posting a little check in on my goal list for the year, six months more to go! Lose sixty pounds, completely doable and will be bringing me super close to my goal weight. Complete Project 365 and get all of the photos bound in a book. (Not gonna happen, but I still took a lot of photos !) Complete the "Twelve Months of Christmas" more on that in my next post. (Nope!) Read 12+ books. (Last Days of Dogtown, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the first three Sookie Stackhouse books which I count as one book, ) Visit... Continue reading

I'm months late but oh well here is "Love is for Fools" a mish mash of love songs I can't seem to ever get out of my mind. I listen to this a lot when I'm bike riding. 1. Stole My Heart - Little & Ashley 2. I Was Made For You - She & Him 3. Lloyd, I'm ready to be Heartbroken - Camera Obscura 4. Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros 5. Die Alone - Ingrid Michaelson 6. You Are What You Love - Jenny Lewis w/ The Watson Twins 7. Fallen From The Sky -... Continue reading

Oh excuses you are so easy to make! Like: There is never enough time in the day, or I have no idea what to talk about, or My life is boring...blah blah blah. Here is one I have been pandering around quite a bit. "I'm in a funk". WTF I say to myself, WTF! I use it as an excuse to not go to the gym. I use it as the excuse to lay in my bed till 2am watching 80s music videos and I use it most often when I think of this newborn baby blog, starving to death... Continue reading

1. Good coffee is as good as a cupcake. 2. Getting angry NEVER helps (I know this, but I find it hard to LIVE this). 3. Music is my boyfriend. 4. The whole advertising on personal blogs thing is off-putting. 5. Moving more than once a decade is ridiculous (this is my fifth time since 2000!!!) 6. Snoring dogs are part of the Holy Trinity of Cuteness which includes Snoring Babbies and Dreaming Cats. 7. I own too many books. 8. Productive people don't stay up till 4am watching True Blood. 9. You are never truly as cool or as... Continue reading

Man, I've got a bad case of the February blues. It's either the most horrible month of S.A.D or I am just part bear and miss hibernation. All I want to do is eat, sleep and stay warm, very, very little else interests me. Well except for the Olympics, I will stay awake for them. Also crochet I like to crochet and yell at the TV "don't let her pass you!!!!" "Don't fall, don't fall, don't fall!!!!" "LANDITLANDITLANDIT!" I move in like six days! I have very little of my room packed up and ZERO desire to do any. All... Continue reading

I think the best handmade gift I've ever recieved was...yeah I've never recieved one! I have however made some and I think the best is a set of three pillows I made for a friend with the state birds of her life (the birds of where she had lived and loved) embrodiered on them.
So I decided to use Shuttercal for my Project 365 Continue reading

Sleep eluded me. The little people were well behaved. I desperately wanted a nap. Also a shower. Had coffee with mom, aunt and uncle. Bought yarn for a new crochet project, but forgot to buy my february christmas supplies. Ordered Chinese, but they discontinued making my favorite veg dish. Watched "Angels and Demons" with the fam, liked it about as much as I liked the book... Did not take a photo 365, unless pictures of yarn on my phone count (and I just decided they do). Find myself overwhelmed by the process of packing and moving. I own too much... Continue reading

So ideally I'd like to actually have these mixes done before the month ends, but this one just took forever, partly because I haven't made a mix in a really, really, extraordinarily long time. I'm out of practice. I decided to set up playlists for the next six months and assign them themes so the searching would be easier as I make the mixes. The theme for January is pretty simple as it was the first month and one I'm usually suffering thru (stupid SAD) since I have very little desire to break copyright laws I am going to just...

I'm being naughty and writing this just before I go to bed at 3AM Wednesday morning. I wish I could say I'm up this late on a weeknight, because I was out hob knob-bing with interesting, exciting people, possibly sipping expensive drinks while talking about foreign films. Alas, this is not the case, the reality is I worked till 9:30, then went to the gym where I stayed until 12:15. By the time I had ran a few other errands (atm at bank, buying broccoli, taking a shower, starting a load of laundry and tidying up my space) it was... Continue reading
