Girls Night Out

Went out on Friday for "Girls Night Out". It was my good friend's Birthday. It was really great to go out with her as we have not spent much time together in the past 5 years or so. So it was the 2 of us, her best friend, and about 4 other girls. Some people were great and some people not so much. Anyhow, we started at Chili's for dinner and a drink. Had the onion petal things they are soooooooo YUMMY!! Gave Jess her gifts and hoped she enjoyed them. Which she did. :) Then we went to a small Karaoke Bar. That was a blast. We sung everything from "Girls just wanna have fun" to "No Scrubs". Got the chance to bond with 2 new girls as well. One not so new (Britney) and one definately new (Kathy). I love Britney. She is so funny and honest it totally cracks me up. She convinced this one guy not to drive home by telling him she was an off duty cop and he needed to sober up before he left. LOL!! Kathy was just the sweetest person I have ever met in my life she really touched my heart. I am so proud of her for putting her feelings out there and being brave. So with the exception of a few rocky moments overall I would say it was a total success. Can wait to go out with some of the girls again for my B-Day.

Perfect Place To Knit...

So I recently discovered for me what is the perfect place to knit. It is my new bean bag. I love it. I is completely and udderly comfortable while at the same time completely mobile. Got all my stuff ready to ship off to my spoilee now I just have to find the time to make it to the Post Office. Hoping she likes it very much. *fingers crossed* The new season of One Tree Hill started last night. So excited, I thought it was a great episode. I was a little concerned knowing that 2 of the main characters would no longer be there but then it made me laugh out loud and I remembered why I loved it so much. Back to knitting. Now that my package is ready to be shipped I can start focusing on the other projects I have to finish. A) My second sock. B) Cabin Pillow C) Horseshoe Towel, which I still have to frog again & then start over. The Fiber-In will be here Friday I am soooooo excited I can't wait. Not actually going until Saturday but still I can't wait. Friday I will be going out with the girls. It is Jessica's B-day. Excited about going out but I am sure I will miss Walt.

If I Won The Lottery

So with the swap comes questions and answers to post to your blog. Our first question is what we would do if we won the lottery.

First, I would buy my sister a house. She is a single parent with 3 children and works really hard for everything they have. I value her patience and think she is a wonderful parent. I would like to help her out lots.

Second, I would then set up a college fund for my 3 nieces. I don't ever plan to have children so worrying about mine is not a problem. :)

Third, I would buy a house for my boyfriend and I.

Fourth, I would buy a penguin!!!

Fifth, I would help my boyfriend to start his art co-op.

Sixth, I would send some money my mom's way.

Seventh, I would like to set up a small business for Julie & I to sell all our crafty stuff in because god knows we have enough! :)

Eighth, New cars.

Nineth, I want to travel the world and just go to a bunch of different food festivals and cook-offs. I should probably invest in a trainer in that case.

Tenth, become a teacher. The pay isn't great but who cares I just won the lottery! It is something I am super passionate about.

Eleventh, Go to a Florida/Georgia game. Been a dream of mine for ever. Let me clarify I am NOT a Florida fan. Yes, I live in Florida but I have been a Georiga fan as far back as I can remember.

Twelveth, Buy some more crafty stuff. Yarn, needles, plastic canvas, soap, etc....

I guess that is all I can think of I am sure more will come. Oh yeah like Betty (it's a bike) I would love to buy Betty.

So Hard

I am finding it so hard to blog right now. I just started my secret swap so everything I am currently doing is geared towards that and I can't blog about what I am planning or working on because it would give away my identity. I used to think finding cute patterns for myself was hard enough but now trying to find something that I would enjoy knitting plus something my swapper would like has become quite challenging. Had a pretty rough weekend. Went out and did some Geocaching unfortunately we decided to do this around 1pm and it was super hot. I got sunburned because that's what I do and then ended up getting really sick from all the heat. So much for enjoying my 3-day weekend. We have also been trying to eat healthy which has had it's ups and downs. I love my special K crackers but how many times do I have to watch the same pizza hut commercial before caving in and getting pizza? Well the answer is about 50. So I guess that is it for now just wanted to check in with the world.
