I'm very excited it's Friday!
I had a blast last weekend at the women's retreat, but I am looking forward to being in my own space this weekend.
Here is a recap of this week's best...
(more found here)
1. I made this clover scarf for a Notre Dame women's basketball fan.
The guy who ordered it (for his wife) was one of my regulars at my pre-teaching job.
He was affectionately called Big Papa (aka Kevin).
2. I attempted my very first granny square last night.
Not too bad if I may say so myself.
I'm still REALLY bad at starting new colors.
(Plus, you can't see all of the string tails that I am clutching in my hand.)
3. I picked up some yarn at a local boutique for my friend's ring bearer pillow.
I am NOT EVEN CLOSE TO KIDDING when I say that this could quite possibly be my drug of choice.
This yarn is the softest I have ever felt.
It is also TOP quality (read: expensive).
This picture shows what $90.00 of yarn looks like.
I went to Michael's, got the same quantity and spent $40.00.
I kind of want to roll around in this stuff and rub it all over me...but I won't
I just bought this much to give her some choices.
I wish I could keep it all, but I don't know if I'm good enough...yet.
4. My Keurig decided to crap out on me on Tuesday night.
Go figure that my 5 year old Gevalia 12-cup still works perfectly.
One great thing about using a regular coffee pot is that I wake up to freshly brewed coffee and get to save the five minutes that it usually takes me to get the other coffee ready.
(I use a refillable K-cup, so it takes a little longer...)
I'm still undecided on whether or not to get a new one.
5. I was more than a little excited to see that these curvy models are being used at H&M overseas.
I am sick of seeing stick figures displaying clothing that is supposedly going to fit me.
I like big butts and I cannot lie...
Handsome Husband is taking me for a nice birthday dinner tonight.
What is something great that happened to you this week?
