Holy Crap!

Ok, so I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a Disney Nerd, but seriously this is an over the top wedding:

So all of you coming to the wedding, be glad I'm not this much of a Disney fanatic.

I finished an awesome book

I just finished reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I loved this book, I know it was meant for teenagers, but it is incredibly well written and is a great story line. Though it is no secret that I love books and movies about vampires, so I may be a bit biased. I wasn't going to read this book, but after great reviews by 2 friends who aren't into vampire books I decided to read it. Man am I glad that I did, I literally read this book in 4 days, it's freaking addictive.

This made me laugh

This made me think of Steve and laugh out loud in my office today:

I love this one

I love this even more with the entwining of souls:

Wedding Quilt

I know you all must be getting sick of wedding talk, but since I'm planning a wedding it looks like it's going to continue for a while.

I really want to do a wedding quilt for my guestbook. I got the idea from Speakaboo on craftster:


I want to have maple leaves though for the guests to sign and I'd like the tree to look more like this:

I also love the wedding rings at the bottom of this. I may also go with a tree of life theme:

But I don't know where I'd put leaves on that design. Hmmmm.

WTF?!?!?

I was reading the Beauty in Real Life blog today and this was part of the quote about the "Eyeslices" eye pads they are giving away:
eyeSlices® are innovative eye treatment pads that combine the natural essence of nature.

WTF? the natural essence of nature? What the hell is that?

Pub Knittin'

Tonight I went to knit at Hennessey's almost everyone was there. It's nice getting to see so many people at once. I dig it. I'm not staying at home tonight through Sunday night, my Mom is in Texas and my parents have a new female roomie so my Dad didn't want to be staying there alone with her, you know, don't invite the appearance of evil and all. So I'm staying at their house, I don't know how that's going to work though, makes it hard not getting to be with Steve all night.

Old Woman

Have you guys seen this commercial from Kaiser Permanente?



I love this song so I looked up who it was by, it's an artist named Michelle Shocked I downloaded her Short Sharp Shocked album. I love this woman. Here's the original video for this song, When I Grow Up, you have to love the weird 80's ness of it:

I Made A Hat!

I made the Buttercup Beret for a 1930's Glamour swap on Ravelry. I think it came out pretty well. Here's some pics for you all:

Here it is as a slouchy hat (how I'd wear it):

And as a beret:

Don't mind the looks on my face or the fact that I'm wearing 2 sweaters, it's early and cold. But I'm thinking of making one of these hats for myself. I'm kind of digging the slouchy hat thing.

100th Post

WooHoo, I'm on my 100th post. I have no idea why I'm still up, everyone in my house is totally asleep and I need to be awake tomorrow, I'm taking my niece out to lunch to ask her to be one of my bridesmaids but I just can't sleep right now. I've been looking at wedding stuff all night, it's kind of becoming an obsession, but I just really want it to be an expression of us, and of our love for each other. I asked my best friend from highschool, Lolo to be a bridesmaid today and she was so excited she literally jumped up and down.

On the knitting front I finished a beret tonight, it's for a swap, but I think I'm going to make one for me, it's too cute for words and super fast and helps take up some of those single skeins laying around. I'll take pics after it's blocked.

I FOUND AWESOME CAHSMERE

I found the yarn I want to use for my bridesmaid's shawls! It's only $36 a cone so I should only need 2 cones for all 5 shawls! I can't get the page to load, but it's from Colourmart. Should be good stuff!

Election

I'm pretty happy with the President elect, but I am more than pissed off about prop 8 passing. How can we deny a group of people a right based on something they can't change about themselves? That's it, before I get to preachy, I'm going to sign off.

I Voted

P1010425.JPG

Yep, that's right, I voted today, and I got my super sticker. I have to say that I honestly didn't know anyone who was running for the local offices, so I voted for all non-incumbents. And I of course voted NO on 8! No one in my office did, and I've been having to bite my tongue about the fact that they all are voting for segregation and taking away the rights of a whole group of people.

No Caffeine

Today I quit drinking soda, I'm trying to cut back on my caffeine and my high fructose corn syrup. Holy crap, I feel like I've been doing cocaine and am having withdrawal from that. I have a horrible headache and feel sick to my stomach. I'm gonna go sleep, I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow.

Halloween Part 2

So I got to have 2 Halloween costumes this year. This first one was for work, I went as an 80's chick, I found silver leggings at Target and I needed an excuse to buy them, plus my real costume was too short for work. So here I am on our balcony, sorry for the turned pic, that's how Steve likes to take them:
P1010410.JPG

Then for Halloween night Steve and I went as the Dude and Ms. Lebowski from The Big Lebowski during his acid trip. I made my costume and knit Steve a sweater from the movie, which I'll have to post later since he wasn't wearing it for these pics:

And here is Steve without his wig looking decidedly like a gay Mr. Clean, but I still love him:

That was our Halloween night since we didn't have the munchkin, it was super fun!

NaBlaPoMo and Halloween Part 1

I've decided to do the NaBlaPoMo again this year, a post every day for all of November. I think it'll help me get my blogging mojo back.

Ok so onto the content of the post. We took C to Disneyland last weekend to watch the fireworks and he decided he wanted to wear his costume, so here he is, my little dead pirate:

You can see S and C in this one, they were watching the fireworks and eating popcorn.

I'll have some pics of S and my costumes tomorrow.
