tees in january should be outlawed

my sweaters are sad.

they only get to come out and play like once a week....the rest of the time, it's been too warm for them.

according to my meteorologist friends (yes, be jealous...i've got friends who are weather peeps), something about a system in the ocean means we aren't getting much winter weather around these parts.

the bright side?

i get to see this when i come home.

now watch it snow in march and kill off my pretty little hyacinths.

hayley is much prettier than ansel right?

oh yes...i'm jumping on the photo-a-day bandwagon. THIS one in fact.

cuz let's face it...i need some inspiration. and you need something to look at that's not random photos of my shoes.

even though at least half of these could TOTALLY be pictures of my shoes.

bring it february. even with your extra day...i'm gonna rock this bitch.

or at least hopefully not totally suck at it =)

is scotchguard the new black?

between this part-time job gig and crocheting up a storm to get orders finished...i feel like i've negleted my poor little blog!

but if there's one thing that will get me's my one true love.

no, not the hubs....SHOES.

 i scored these beauties yesterday at target. LOVE finding something i've lusted over online at the store...these weren't a big time steal like my boots were, but they're still super pretty =)

and yes, you have to ignore the fact that it looks like i have cankles in the second photo....cuz i do NOT. they are scrawnier than all get out.

now i just have to figure out the best way to keep them pristine that does NOT involve only wearing them in my house.

also, spent a whopping $13 this weekend...

for a sweet new haircut. about half an inch shorter, but feels SO much better. great clips for the win people...great clips for the win.

promise i'll try and be around more, even if all you'll hear about is yarn and chicken wings!

you'd think i'd get an A for effort

learned monday....apparently, my lady bits get a solid B+.

doc says things aren't bad at all, and right now she isn't worried. so yay for that. BOO for having to wait on test results...oh yeah, and for having to spend $376 to get my innards inspected.

in other money news...the hubs decided it's time to buckle down and work on a budget (so we can save some money for some little ones in the still-very-distant-future). guess who still has 2/3 of her monthly allowance left, AND has been making some extra cash selling scarves??

i am nerdily proud of myself.

and's only january 18th. it's all about the little victories here people.

 plus they're so pretty all stacked up =)

plus, i got a part-time job at a new wing restaurant in town.

i'm basically a fast-food cashier. but cuter. and i don't hate my life.

i don't really think this is what the bangles had in mind

manic probably doesn't really describe my monday....maybe more like "quasi-productive for one in a blue freaking moon'??

finished one of these...and made the other 2. and yes...this girl IS super excited about selling these bad boys. cuz...the hubs decided we needed to be on an allowance. aaaaaand i might want more moola than that. (if you dig these and want one for yourself...let me know! i got lots of time, and they're totally less than a fast food dinner for two!)
clearly...these 2 are not enthralled by my mad crochet skills. (just wait til i figure out how to make dog clothes boys...then you'll WISH you got to sleep.)

AND then i wrapped up the day with this delightfully vegetarian dinner from scratch. yep...made quinoa my bitch. (and don't worry....the white-trashy dinner of chicken and potatoes and cheese and bacon is coming later this week!)

not bad for one if you'll excuse me...i've got more hooking to do. (the yarn kind...not the lady parts kind).

when christmas presents attack

as my first post of 2012...this could be about my new year's resolutions.

but it's not, because i don't make them.

it could be about my lovely christmas, since i haven't been around much since then.

but it's not...because one of my gifts turned on me.

my mom knows how cold i get, and how i love to be she lovingly got me a pair of fuzzy socks that come all the way up to my knees. they are grey and squishy and cozy and i love them.

but yesterday....our relationship too a rocky turn.

because socks, plus this

equals the biggest, nastiest bruise on my right ass cheek EVER. and yes...i did in fact fall all the way from the top to the bottom. on my ass. omg.

don't think i didn't contemplate trying to get a non-scandelous picture just so you could see how HORRID it looks...but then i figured no one really needed to see my humps on the internet. especially not in that condition.

it's like the universe said "welcome to the new year're still REALLY FREAKING CLUMSY".

at least i can still blog with a battered bum.
