Decisions ... Decisions ... Decisions!

Decisions! Decisions!

If you follow my blog regularly you make have noticed I'm just a little bit off my rocker. If you're new: WELCOME! I'm so glad you're here ... And just ignore that sentence above because I'm in fact completely normal. 

Anyhoo, as you (may) know I finished TWO crochet blankets. My Vintage Fan Ripple and my Geometric Lace Blanket. 

Now, you might be wondering why I made TWO blankets the exact same colors but two completely different's because I'm nuts and insecure when it comes to my crochet. My stepmom wanted a "beach theme" blanket for the new house. 

I started with the Vintage Fan Ripple...started doubting myself ... so I started the hexagon blanket. Good news is: I finished them both! Now, I'm going to let my stepmom pick the one she likes best.

Which one would YOU pick?

Ooh, How Pinteresting and What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Hi & Happy Wednesday!

Let's link up with Michelle and Jamie

I'm LOVING that we're just a couple days away from PayDay Friday. Holy smokes! 

I'm LOVING that not only am I going to be a bridesmaid in Jenn's wedding, but she sent these cute little ornaments in the post:

I'm LOVING the Blogger app for ONE reason - it makes adding photos from my phone to my posts SO much easier (instead of having to upload and/or email them to myself).

I'm LOVING that FINALLY made it to the pool last weekend. I need a replay of that day...and or go again soon. I LOVE pool days! 

I'm LOVING Pinterest.
All my pins can be found here:

What are YOU LOVING this week?

Teaser Tuesday ::: Joyland

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.


“When you're twenty-one, life is a roadmap. It's only when you get to be twenty-five or so that you begin to suspect that you've been looking at the map upside down, and not until you're forty are you entirely sure. By the time you're sixty, take it from me, you're fucking lost.” 

So far...So Good!

I salute Daja for sharing her beautiful story about breastfeeding. I am nursing our little boy for a year now and it takes a lot of sacrifice, patience and support from the family. Indeed, not an easy task. The mother should be prepared and trust her body.
