I Forgot Today Was Taco Tuesday!

I have no sense of time. I totally forgot it was Tuesday! We haven't been going to Rosa's for taco tuesday recently so my life is out of wack!

1. I want these boots! They look like they are magical and have a story to tell. Hopefully soon I will hit up some thrift stores and find my own magical boots.
2. Fun fact: Bumper cars is the only ride I will get on at the fair willingly. I am petrified of roller coasters and such...
3. Fall is officially here, but it's still warm enough to water ski lol...
4. The most amazing tree house ever! Clint's dad is building one on the ranch for the little girls. I bet it will be amazing too!
5. This photo just cracked me up...you've got prima ballerina's, a dude in a colonial wig with a baby umbrella, and the capital in the background....what in the world?!
Iphone apps I downloaded today b/c I was bored:
tetris (don't ask how many hours i played this or the # of times I had to charge my phone)
craft video
lion brand yarn (yeah there's an app for yarn!)

did you know silverchair (my fav band of all time!) has an iphone app?? well they do! lol

What are your fav iphone apps? i'll let you know soon after i test out some of the new ones...but definitely tetris

Day Off Parade

Fall weather is here! We took the puppies for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday afternoon, the weather was so nice! I need to start thinking of fall decorations. Maybe I will make a new wreath for my front door...

This morning I had coffee and pumpkin pancakes with my husband before he had to go to work.
PS does anyone know the name of the design on this mug? I have a notebook (that was a gift), and I'd like more of this cute stuff...let me know...
Today I:

Plan to paint my nails.
Eat more of the peanut butter nutella cookies I made at 12am.
Put up the laundry/do more laundry.
Work on my holiday planner.
Keep cleaning/organizing the craft room/study.
Keep on truckin' on learning to crochet.

Avery & Sango BFF

I have a super long day of work today, but as I was enjoying my coffee and looking at my sisters facebook I came across some cuteness that was too cute not to share! lol

This little pug puppy belongs to my sisters 2 pugs Milo and Otis. Sango sleeps wonky apparently.
Meet Avery playing with Sango. Isn't this the cutest thing ever?! I miss Avery and can't wait to meet Sango, who will be super big by the time we meet!

Happy Hooker

My husband has been trying to teach me to crochet. You may be confused by that sentence, but it is no joke! lol. He and I learned to knit together a few years ago by using Debbie Stoller's first book Stitch N Bitch. He understands how to read and figure out the stuff, me I'm kinda hopeless. So Clint figures it out and teaches me. :) We knitted many a scarf while watching 10 seasons of Stargate SG1.

So I have tried teaching myself with this book, thinking I can knit I can figure out how to crochet....wrong...for some reason I am making it super hard. So last night Clint taught me a few basics and I like to watch videos on youtube to get a visual. Clint says crocheting is way easier and faster!
One of the main reasons I want to crochet is to make granny squares. I don't know if you recall last year at Urban Outfitters they had tons of crocheted home decor: pillows and afghans! Unfortunately they were too expensive for my budget, and I always think, 'I can make that'! (PS the 'I can make that' motto keeps me from buying lots of things!)

I just found this video (and photo cred) on tipdeck.com. I haven't tried watching the video yet, but it looked promising!
I am also watching the videos on favcrafts.com

I found this pattern via Muffins and More. The creator of this awesome pattern is sukigirl, and she has loads of other fun patterns too! This is going to be one of my first not in the book projects. On Sukigirl's blog she said she is a slow tea drinker and this keeps her tea warmer longer. I have that problem too! (Photo cred sukigirl).

This is a cool pattern I would love to try later when I am awesome! Found via crafster.org

I can not wait for this game to come out! I am a huge fan of cooking mama and gardening mama. I bet this game will be super fun! You can buy this game when it comes out and all the others on amazon.com.

Embassy Sweet!

Today I saw a waterfall.
It was indoors.
Koi fish fascinate me.
I want a pond of them in my backyard.
Today I ate some free italian. PS there was cheesecake, but I ate it too fast.
Today was the first district holiday meeting of the year. It was held at the Embassy Suites, which was pretty sweet! This week seems to have gone by so quickly! Tonight I am going to teach myself to crochet again and try to start a beginners project that I saw on Brooke's blog.

Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Clito Ruiz y Picasso

I think Picasso may be my dad, we have the same taste in hats. I'm sure it's genetic.
PS I have mad hatter hair like always.

Get On Your Wooden Horse

I made this.
Lyrics from a Weepies song.
There is a puppy sleeping on my foot.
My foot is falling asleep.
I bought a big crochet hook today.
There may have been some Fig colored yarn bought too.
I went to Starbucks 2x's today...I'm so bad.
I read a bunch of silly blog stuffs.
Now I know what's the what.
I watched an episode of BBC's Jekyl.
I have to go iron a shirt for tomorrow's meeting.
I have been very apathetic today...um...everyday...lol.

L.A.M.B. @ NY Fashion Week

I haven't really paid much attention to NY Fashion Week, but when I noticed Gwen Stefani on the trending topics for yahoo when logging in to my email I had to check it out! If I could afford L.A.M.B. stuff I would totally buy it. I know where to purchase a L.A.M.B. bag here in the 806, but I've restrained myself. :) So check out my fav pics from the show:

PS Isn't her son cute?!

Doesn't her hair look amazing?! I might try some braids in my short hair tomorrow.
PS I would wear all of the following outfits...

Is It Too Early To Be Thinking About Christmas?

I am already trying to figure out what to get everyone for Christmas this year, and get my ONLINE shopping done early! Of course I already made my list for those early shoppers in my family.

Tamagotchi is at the top of my list! They can be found at Toys R Us, Target, Walmart, and my fav Amazon.com. Plus there is a DS game!

I love the line Alexa Chung did for Madewell.

I've been wanting a shirt from dressingontheside for a while.

Don't laugh, but I've been trying to make these gloves myself. I haven't got the whole double pointed needle thing down yet. But Miss Indie has come to my rescue!

The Frankie Diary is a must have!

I heart Breakfast at Tiffany's, and I love sleep masks. Miss Indie whipped up the perfect gift! I kinda want to buy one for everyone I know! PS I'm pretty sure Clint would steal mine if I had one.

I feel like I need a billion organizer/planners. This one is by Katie Spade.

AshleyG always has some cool stuff in her shop.

I am in love love with this headband! GiantDwarf keeps selling out, but keeps cranking them out! Hopefully a cute husband I know will grab one up for me before they are all gone!

PS What do you want for christmas?

That's What She Said Sunday

I start my new job bright and early tomorrow! Wish me luck!
