School is back in session. My second assignment is due tomorrow and I have one due Monday. I'm going to try and will hopefully succeed to have them all done by Saturday so that we can take Sunday and Monday off to celebrate 2 years of marriage. I read the chapter for tomorrows assignment tonight and I may sneak and work on it some during work tomorrow (shhhhh) :) I can't wait till the end of December - I will be DONE with school!!!!!
The baby shirt is coming around nicely.... or at least I think it is. Will post pictures later. Welp, it's bed time for me. I wish you all a peaceful night sleep with dreams of day lilies and clear blue skies.

So I promised you an update in my last blog and an update you shall have. Lately my life has consisted of watching tv with my wonderful husband, shopping, knitting, taking naps, and doing a wee bit of sewing. I've loved it. I know you want some details...well lets see.
I went shopping at JoAnns the other day and came out $120 poorer, but oh I had fun. I got another basket for my yarn, as the stash continues to grow. I also bought some scrapbooking paper (Yes I'm going to start back), a mini scrapbook and this great easel kit to make a personalized photo artwork... I went to use my printer the other day to do the easel thing and I think I need some new ink (how sad).
Last Saturday I had a wonderful trip to the yarn store with Lotus Knits. We went to a new knitting store called Knitch and it is now my favorite knitting store. I normally don't like knitting stores, they make me uncomfortable but these ladies made me feel right at home. It was terrific. Here are some pics that Lotus Knits took for me (I left my camera at home - I know horrible of me)
I bought yarn for some Christmas presents and to make a baby shirt for a friend of mine. I've already started on it...my first garment (I'll let you know how it goes). I must admit that I didn't buy all my yarn here, but this was my fav stop of the day so....
Also, I've completed my bag. I know it's huge, but hopefully it
will shrink once it's been washed.....
As I told you in my last blog I've set my sewing machine up and I love it. I made the purse organizer I spoke of weeks/months ago. It is ok, but my sewing skills need some work... hee
Other than that my life is pretty much as normal. School started back this week and I'm determined to stay current. I lost my 4.0 last semester...I made a B+ which puts my GPA at 3.96 which is good but still disappointing for me. I knew these last few classes were going to be tough, I'm learning just how tough...
Work is work....nothing much to add there. My wedding anniversary is next Monday - 2 years! I'm so excited. We're not doing anything really special, getting a new bedspread for the bed :) maybe going out to dinner. I'm just grateful to have my life - it has its ups and downs but overall I'm happy...who could ask for more.

My Mama's B-day is on Saturday and my brother from FL is coming down for a surprise visit. Yep he's staying here which means my house has to get cleaned up! Yikes :)
My laptop that I used to use for Teamspeak when playing online games has been removed from my desk and I cancelled my EQII account. I never play and it was taking up valuable money and desk space. In it's place is my sewing machine. I have a couple of projects I may try... all inspired by: http://africankelli.com/
Not sure what my next knitting project is. I really want to do my shawl, but can't seem to find the "right" pattern. I can never choose the right project for me but I'm starting something Wed :) not sure what but it will be cool.
Ok, enough of my ramblings that make no sense. Talk to you all later :)
