5 on Friday

Happy Friday folks. OMG. I could not be more happy/relieved it's Friday. I'm just plain tired. I have some stuff planned for this weekend but I don't know if I'm going to be able to follow thru. I may have to be a faker and stay home and get my rest.

My little Facebook page has been growing! I'm very happy for that. I have 100 likes in the past 6 days. Have you liked me yet? If not - please do here. if you did - THANK YOU!

I've been busy making baby booties that I'm happy I've finally had some time to work on my Tunisian Crochet blanket (for my own home personal use). It's so cold out side (and in my apartment) I need to hurry up and get this bad boy finished!

I'm going to be paying off 3 credit cards this month! I'm excited. I so want to be out of debt...especially credit card debit. I racked up a bunch in college (hell I put a partial payment for a semester on one card and let's not start on how expensive books were). Once I pay off these cards I'll have extra spending (or saving) money which is always a plus
Getting in a Florida state of mind! I'm thinking of going to visit the family first week of December. I miss the JONESES (and warm weather) so at the end of next week I'm going to be looking up plane tickets. I'm THRILLED.
What's on your agenda for the weekend/or on your 5 on Friday list?

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday!
I'm going to take a note out of my pal Jenn's book today and do a Thankful post.
I'm thankful that every little thing is going to be alright.  I've been a bit emotionally overwhelmed lately with personal stuff but I have been comforted to know that things are getting better.
I'm thankful that I have a boyfriend and a mom that I can call SOBING from my car in the parking lot of my job and they sit and listen to me (sucking up snot and all) and both spend the rest of the day reaching out to me to make sure I'm okay (including Troy making up a movie nite complete with snacks and good movies).
I'm thankful for sales opportunities. I've only closed one thing this month (and that was just a renewal) but I'm happy that people are agreeing to meet with me and hear me out on what I'm trying to sell.  In the long run I know it'll come back and they'll buy.
As much as I LOVE taco bell (no exaggeration) I'm Thankful that I don't have to clean the bathrooms - LOL
I'm thankful for my daily online distractions (my blog, pinterest, facebook, instagram) all the things that take my mind off the stress and anxiety of every day life.
What are you Thankful for today?

Kicking Booty and Taking Names...

...or is it I took names and then kicked booty? After THIS post I got a few more orders for baby booties. Real Life paying customers -- isn't that fantabulous?! I've worked up 7 pairs:
(Only six pictured here...don't ask me why...cuz I don't know either! And I am my own photographer. Tsk)

(I like pic stitch ... can't you tell?)

Of course now I have to make a couple pairs to gift to my pregger gal pals. More booties on my plate! Don't be surprised if you see one more post from me about booties!

For pattern information please refer to this original post about the booties.

What's Cooking Wednesday ... AKA What I WISH was cooking Wednesday

Time to link up with Jenn for What's Cooking Wednesday!

Ready to drool?!
Get your bib - I don't want you to ruin your pretty shirt!

Teaser Tuesday ::: Rebel Heart

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

I got me a new book - Rebel Heart by Moria Young:


“Whatever it is, I sure didn’t go lookin fer it.
You don’t hafta, she says. If it’s meant to be, it’ll find you. We like to think we’re in charge of our own lives, but we ain’t. Not really.”

This is the second book in the Dust Land series. So far it's not bad. I'm only about an hour into it (I'm audiobooking this one).

Have you read this one? If not - I do recommend Blood Red Road to you - that's Moira Young's first book in the series. While I was reading it I didn't like it THAT much but then I kept thinking about it and thinking about it and realized...I did like it.

The writing style is a bit weird/takes time to get use to - that's why I opted for the audiobook version of book 2.

What are you reading?

I LOVE Yarn Day 2013

Not only am I THRILLED it's Friday but it's "I love yarn day"! A national holiday for hooker enthusiasts like myself!

There's been a lot of yarn I've been using and loving lately and thought today be the PERFECT day to share them with you!
Right now I'm LOVING:
KnitPicks Chroma Fingering Yarn.
I've been making these booties out of it.
Red Heart's Boutique Unforgettable Yarn.
I made a shawl out of it (which I have yet to share with you guys) and it came out AMAZING!
{find here}


Caron's Country Yarn.
OMG it's soooo soft! I made this blanket out of it. I can't wait to make more stuff out of this yarn.
{find here}
There's lots of great yarn and pattern sales and deals out there today. I woke up to an inbox full of goodies and I'm tempted to spend all the little dollars in my account on this stuff!
This Caron yarn was only $1.99 per skein at AC Moore ... so I think I'll go pick up a few AND Jo-Ann's is having a 50% off yarn sale today - woohoo!
So I'm going to get of this here world wide webs and get to spending my money on BALLS of yarn! Lots and Lots of BALLS of yarn.
Happy Friday Folks!

Booty-Booty-Booties Rockin Everywhere!


How about a little booty to brighten your day?

Cute right? I've been crocheting MY booty off making these. So far I've made four pairs and I have 3+ pairs on custom order that I need to get hooking.

They aren't my favorite thing to make but damn ... they are cute!  
The above pairs have been shipped to make four lil happy feet!

I hand delivered purple happiness yesterday for more happy feet!

Only pair I have yet to sell ... So these babies will be in my Esty shop soon!

If you like to hook you can buy the pattern HERE.

If you'd like to buy a pair - visit my shop or send me an email!

Virtual Coffee - Have some with me?

Holy Crap my friend - it's OCTOBER! 
Where did time go?
Soon it'll be Christmas!!
(scary thought right?!)

Ready for some coffee?  

I think I'll have a PSL today. I have a coupon for a FREE drink (due to the fact they served me a cold bacon, egg and cheese sandwich last time I was there --- ugh) so I'm going for a Venti. I deserve it. 

So. I haven't blogged in nearly two weeks -- did you notice? -- I just haven't felt like it. I haven't even read any blogs these past 10+ days. I just go through these cycles where I'll go hard at something for a while and then...I just STOP. I guess it's good to take a break every now and then. Right? Have you given yourself a break from something lately? Or thinking of giving yourself a break?

My new boss started two weeks ago. You remember I had a lot of anxiety about this a few coffees ago.  So far things have been good. My anxiety level is down but my stress level is slightly rising. That comes with new leadership...right? How are things working for you?

This weekend my pal Marie had her 30th remix birthday. It was a nice day with the gals. We visited four vineyards in Virginia - had lots of wine, cheese, yummy snacks and beautiful weather.  If I could do that every weekend...or every other weekend I'd be a happy gal. How was your weekend? Anything fun and/or special.

I have a few orders in the queue to crochet - which is GREAT! People are wanting my crochet goods! Marie even asked for some bootcuffs for her birthday!  So if I go MIA on the blog for awhile again ... it's because my fingers fell off do to all my hooking!  I do have a post scheduled for tomorrow already written and ready to you'll AT LEAST have a lil more of me tomorrow!

What's been going on in your world? How have you been?
