High Five for (Week in Review) Friday

So, I've been a bit lax totally MIA on here.
I have learned some new crochet thingamajiggers and I become a bit obsessed.
So, since I went missing most of the week, I decided to do a "Week in Review" version of HF4F.

(Don't forget to check out Lauren's blog for her HF4F post.)
Handsome Husband and I went on a pre hockey game date and brought along our new favorite thing--our doodle book.  It's a book filled with draw-starts that tells you something about what's happening, tells you what to draw or asks you a question.   We had a blast.  I bought new pens (I have a school set and now a purse set for just this purpose) for us to doodle with.

I was the lone woman at Handsome Husband's fantasy football post-season party, so I decided to do it up right.  I crocheted my little heart out while chit-chatting with the boys.

My monkey coozie came along with me and kept my beer company while I was crocheting.

This is SERIOUSLY the best coffee in the entire world.  (Ok, maybe not the ENTIRE world, but it is darn close.)  It is from Target and out of my world.

Getting ready for an after-spinning shopping trip.  I hope I didn't make anyone lose their desire to grocery shop...I was pretty, um, slick.  Thanks, Ali!

Speaking of spinning...I now have NINE WHOLE DOLLARS in my workout jar.  I started putting money in it two and a half weeks ago, so that's not bad in my book.

The two above photos are what my friend Britt affectionately calls "yarn porn."  She is an avid knitter (amazing!!) and has the same affliction that I do.  We need "yarn purchasers anonymous."

A muy delicioso dinner on Monday night.  I am completely infatuated with the steamable edamame available at my local supermarket.  I even ate some for breakfast today.

I finished my friend Laura's camera strap cover.  I finished my SILs too but I think I'm going to redo it because I think it's a bit wonky.

I learned how to make these adorable hearts here.  I think I am going to make these as valentines for my nuggets this year.

My family has an unnatural obsession with "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation."

My nuggets were completely enamored with the writing lesson today.  You could have heard a pin drop.  (No joke...I almost tried it.)

Welp, there you go...way more than five, but still celebrating my week!
I hope you all had a great week and have a great weekend!

  1. Love all the crochet projects! What are you currently working on? I plan to start an afghan soon... I was holding out for the Mystery Crochet Along that Bernat hosts... but it seems like they're doing something different this year (not an afghan with different patterns), so I'm a little disappointed. I'm hoping that the project they just announced isn't taking the place of the afghan mystery CAL.

    1. I am making hats for some of my friend's kiddos and another camera strap cover for my sister-in-law. I'd love to attempt an afghan and I am going to try my hand at an infinity scarf. I'm going to look into the CAL you mentioned. Sounds cool!! Thanks for stopping by!
