Boot Cuff Par-tay!!

RARELY do I make things I want to keep for myself ... But boy ol boy I want to keep these beauties all for myself:

Not only are they cute but I enjoyed making them. I have begrudgingly added them to my Etsy shop for sale!


Go buy yo self a pair OR if you're a hooker like me and want the pattern you can find it here.

Got my momma to model again for me! She's becoming a pro! Remember her posing for these scarves?

Anyhoo, I'll be making more in more colors and I will probably keep like four pairs for myself!

I'm in the office today for production day -- so I thought this would be a good excuse to share my LOVES and PINS this week.
I'm LOVING that my little cousin loved his birthday gift! I got him some NASCAR calls and trading cards and Big Nate books.  It makes me happy because I literally went to TWO Targets and stood and stared at the toy isle trying to figure out what the heck to buy.
I'm LOVING the feedback I got on Instagram about these little booties I made. I wasn't thrilled with them but people seem to like them - thank you! I may just be hard on myself since I'm making them as an order for someone.
I'm LOVING the colors of yarn I got from KnitPicks. I read some bad reviews about them not notifying people when credit cards were compromised -- so I ALMOST didn't order ... until I saw that I could use my paypal. I hope that doesn't come back to bite me in the butt.
I'm LOVING my new glasses. I got three new pairs and the funny thing is ... nobody has seemed to notice (which is more annoying than funny -- especially since I look so SPECTACULAR). I bet people will notice in about six months - and mind you ... I wear glasses all day long.
I'm LOVING Pinterest.
You can find these pins and all my other awesome pins HERE.

What are you LOVING this week?
C'mon...tell me! I REALLY want to know!

Teaser Tuesday ::: City of Glass

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

It's been a long time since I gave you a good you ready for this?
"There is something very wrong with you," he said. "Mentally, I mean." His mouth still tasted of spoiled blood, but the pain was gone. He felt better, stronger, as if the blood were a medicine that worked instantly, a drug he had to have to live.

After seeing the Mortal Instruments movie I've discovered ... I actually want to know what happens in all the other books.  Have you read this and/or will you read this? There's quite a few books in the series plus a spin off (is it called a spin off in the book world?).

What are your thoughts?

HGuess what day it is?!
Guess What Day-IT-IS?!
Are you reading that in the Camel's Voice? you better.
How about some LOVES and some PINS?

I'm LOVING that my Etsy shop is getting traffic. No purchases yet, but I'm happy that I'm getting likes, follows, and favorites. 
I'm LOVING the little padded wallet/coin purse I bought from Etsy (Hey! I have to support handmade especially if I want others to buy my goods...what I put out there is what I get back...right?!)
Get Yo Own
I'm LOVING the time I had off of work last week (and Monday). I shared pics of it HERE. It was beautiful weather, yummy food and delicious drinks at the beach.
I'm LOVING the Crochet Boot Cuffs I'm making (to add to my shop). They are so damn cute. I want to keep them all. Maybe none of them will make it the shop .... :)
Here are my favorite pins this week:
I think I can make this...

These plus all my other awesome pins can be found here.

Virtual Coffee : Back from My Mental Health Break

Good Morning People!
I hope you had a fantabulous weekend and Monday -- I know I did!
Are you interested in grabbing some virtual coffee? Go ahead. I know you want to.
I have mine and I'm all ready to go.
This weekend I had TWO PSLs ... so today ... I'm sticking with my plain ol' breakfast blend Keurig coffee. I'd end up in the poor house if I fed into my pumpkin spice latte addiction. I'm trying to remind myself that $5 coffee is a treat. 

Have you your cup of coffee yet? Ready to chat?
Thanks to my dear buddy Stephanie (and Groupon) we discovered this cute little winery right in Olney, MD. In the past two weeks we've been there TWICE. The wine isn't like the best - but the place is cute and the staff is nice and both times we went we had a GREAT time. Any place you like to go where maybe the food/drink isn't awesome but the atmosphere makes up for it?

Last week I took off a few days of work for my "Mental Health" vacation. Just time to not think about work and to relax and to read and to eat and drink and eat and drink and eat and drink (get my point?). If you don't already do this every so often - I highly recommend it. My motivation this time around was because I ended up inviting myself to my friend Marie's vacation (yes I'm THAT girl who invites herself everywhere). We spent a couple days at the beach and it was awe-some! When's the last time you took a mental health day - and what did you do?
Of course we devoured CRABS in Ocean City, MD. They were so tasty!

We ended up with great weather. It was so nice out.

No shame in our game - SELFIE SATURDAY

Today, I'm back to work. Back on my grind. Got a lot of admin work to do and people to see ANND I heard through the grape vine that my new manager starts next week - YIKES! I'm curious to find out if/how/when this will change my roll at work. I hope not. But I bet it will. How are things for you at work?

 Anyhoo, what's going on in your world? If we were having coffee today -- what would you share with me?

W...W...W... hosted by Should Be Reading

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions...

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you'll read next?

#1: What are you currently reading:


After seeing the movie a couple weekends ago - I decided to re-pick up book # 3 of Mortal Instruments:  City of Glass.

#2 What did you recently finish reading?


I FINALLY finished Book #2 of The Game of Thrones Series. Took me 8 months (hey...I finished other books in those 8 months...don't judge)! Hallelujah!

#3 What do you think you'll read next?

I'm thinking I need to read Insurgent. I bought it right when it first came out, read a few pages, and then never picked it up again. I think I'm ready to read it next. 

What are you reading this week?

Scarves, Scarves, Scarves...Scarves Scarves.

I want you to scroll up and re-read this header to the tune of Jay Z's "Girls, Girls, Girls"
Because that's how I typed it ... to that tune.

If you read this post - you'll know that I opened my own Etsy shop (yay!). 

I got my mom to model my masterpieces for me yesterday (doesn't she make a lovely model?). She's making my scarves look AWE-SOME!

I want to keep them all ... but I can't ... all I can do is hope they end up in a nice loving home!
