Baby Time

Hey everyone.....my friend Tami is going to be a grandma.....well, she kinda already is a grandma (long story) but her oldest daughter, Dejah, is expecting next month and they had a baby shower for her this past weekend.



First, I frogged the original booties....



 started a new pair of booties...

 and finished them...

While at the party, Tami showed us these these marshmallow guns she made for her family for Christmas with pompoms as the bullets....they are so cute....I think I wanna make these for my family next year.



Here is a short video of the action:


I also worked on making a pouch for the animals in Australia



But I guess I was too slow because they have asked us to pause....I am going to keep making this one (and maybe some more) in case they ask for more.


That is all I have in the knitting/crocheting world....but I do have some pictures of the cutest dog in the world....okay, all my dogs are cute, but none of them are as photogenic as my Jax....even Bizzle says he should be a model!




And in the fitness area....I am still doing my thang!  Paige and I have almost the same body fat percentage...we have a difference of 0.02% (she has less than me, but she has it in all the right places....mine is all in my belly)....so that was encouraging.

I ran 4 miles yesterday...my trainer has me going at a more comfortable pace (to be more in the fat burning zone) and I think I can go farther with it.


Well, that is all I have this week.....I hope you all have a fabulous week!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Good Morning 2020!


Good Morning everyone.....how has your 2020 been so far?  I know, it is only the 6th day of the year......


I finished the socks I started last Sunday for Chris


I gave them to him yesterday and he loved them.

Then it was time to jump to a gift for a baby shower that is this coming Saturday.....baby booties
I still have to seam up the first bootie and knit the 2nd bootie.


I got some new needles from HiyaHiya for the KAL I hostessed in July/August.....plus some beautiful jewelry



I got a fabulous scepter of power from my knitting friend, Jennifer....I love this pen!


I am still going down my fitness road and have a session with my trainer today....wish me luck!



I have a cute story to tell you about Jackson...it was super hard to photograph.....but Jax found a Spurs Coozie in the backyard (probably from a neighbors house or I have no clue how, but it is not mine).  He loves this thing and has chewed it and offered it to me ( because he loves me) and he apparently loves to sleep with it too.  Sunday morning, he got in bed with me, and he held his coozie with his paw and put his head on it....it was the cutest thing ever!




I also had Jaz over for a bit on Friday.....


Okay, well that is all I have for this week.....have a fabulous week!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020

Hey everyone......it appears I am not closing down 2019 very well as I missed a whole weeks blog post.  I have not blogged since before Christmas.....so how was your Christmas?  Mine was great!

I got an amazing bag from Darlene (along with the advent tea, mug, plus a set of Flight of Stitch Markers plus, she is making me a sweater..she spoils me!):


We had a small Christmas party at work and a new coworker (but long time friend) made me the cutest sweater ornament


I spent Christmas with my family





and even got Jaz for a small visit


I did not take as many pictures as I should have (I was actually not feeling well), but here is a great picture of Mario with Alexxis and a picture of my sister's family



On the knitting front, I finished the hat for Paige....I had to get a new skein of yarn and you can see how different the new skein is



This is all I needed of the new skein...the pompom covers the differences





and decided to make Bizz a blanket....these colors





 I finished on Christmas day and gave to her the next day


I finished Grace's socks (FINALLY)!


and started a pair for Chris George for Christmas (Okay, so I am a bit behind)


I started a new headband for Yvette


Santa was super good to me and I got an Apple TV and a great stitch marker holder (to hold the markers Darlene got me).




Jaime and I went to Fredericksburg this past weekend....and I had some amazing German good....Jägerschnitzel, Spaetzle, red cabbage


And I saw this sign in the candy store....I thought it was cute


Well, that is all I have......Have a great week and Happy New Year!



 (Jaime sent me this pic, told me it reminded him of Jax <3)
