Last night, as I lay my head to sleep, I was thinking about this lil ol blog. How I’ve neglected it for so long. And I couldn’t wait to wake up to post again, to give this blog some lovin’. But, as it turns out, my daughter had a temp and I kept her home from school. So, this is my first chance to write somn’ (she’s napping).
What I was thinking about is that I want to start keeping a log of things that I’ve learned in my life. You know, leave a little legacy for my blogworld. So, without further ado, here’s what I came up with last night:
Life lessons number one:
1. Never, ever, ever buy a used vacuum cleaner.
Now, ponder that whilst I show you my photos of what I’ve been doing for the last few weeks:

L had a fashion show with a friend:
L got her ears pierced:
L has been obsessing about American Girl. These dollies are filling that void until she gets one for Christmas (which we never promised, but she seems to think so):
I had a crafting/ice cream party:
I finally wrote down one of my knit patterns. And two of my friends test knit it. Here’s my version:
(but check out my friend Kristy’s
I had my first craft show of the season (there’s tons left…it’s only October!!)
I went on a date night with my man. This is where we had dinner. They had a mashed potato bar. YUMMMM
and this is where we headed after that:

I had chai with my friend:
And then took photos at Lake Calhoun:
Another friend bought a custom order of my very own pattern – in teal. And I crocheted a flower. I must say, it is pretty dang cute!
This crow was in our backyard for a few days. Really creeped me out.
And since I didn’t do justice for our Winnipeg Photos, here were my favorite two from our trip:
And that’s it in a nutshell.
Good day. The sick one just stirred….
