24 years ago…

…I was born in a small East Tennessee town to a pair of cute parents…

My sister and I went out on Friday night. We went to dinner and then saw The Incredibles (highly recommended). We had a great time–it was an early birthday celebration, and a chance for us to get together and have some fun.


Maryn bought this lovely bracelet for me while she was in Azerbaijan this past summer. This is amazing and exactly the one I would have chosen…

I got some pics of her too, in a scarf I gave her for her birthday.


You see a resemblance?

I think she likes it.

On Sunday, I headed over to my parents’ house for a nice little get-together. My mom and dad were making a lovely dinner (tons of veggies für mich!)

Here is my youngest sister, Sarah, Mom, and Maryn. Sorry Dad (LBD)… I will get a good one of you next time… IOU. :)
Meet ______ (yet to be named)–My new puppet! I used to be a puppeteer and I really loved the work. It always makes people smile! I never had my own puppet, but my dad found this awesome guy at a specialty store in North Carolina. He is so expressive! You can expect to see much more of _____ (Help me come up with a name for him!)

Sarah picked up some lovely coffee mugs for me, as well as a JoAnn gift certificate (see this for a hint of what I will get with the certificate) Thanks Si! Mom and Dad picked up a beautiful clock with a pretty chime. Kris and I need to find the perfect place to put it. Thanks! :)

Kris, knowing the depth of my knitting addiction, gave me these knitty things:

Can’t wait to try this Embellish-Knit. I will report with the results (and pics)!

Thanks to all of my knitty friends who sent e-cards, well wishes, and snail mail cards. You all are so great! You sure know how to make a girl feel special. Aww shucks :)

Have a good week!

    Love your wristwarmers Don’t feel bad about being an attention deficit knitter, there are plenty more of us out there! I don’t dare to count how many WIPs I have at once. Some get considerably more attention than others, though!

    Hi Lauren!
    Thanks for stopping by. You DO have a lot of WIPs – I think their just a sign of healthy diversifiaction. If it were an investment portfolio, nobody would judge you for having so many committments. Work on the ones you enjoy (Read: work on the ones for YOU!).

    my hubby & i SAY “olive juice” to each other when we’re trying to be silly.

    and i tried felting that yarn last night…it really didn’t felt well at all…i think i may hve done it wrong, but the label says it’ll felt if machine washed & dried, so i put it in a hot wash & long, hot dry, and it came out just looking like it had been roughed up a bit, like it was old, not felted. quite disappointed, i was.

    Happy Birthday! I LOVE THE CLOCK! It looks like a grandfather clock, and I’ve been enamored with those since I can remember. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

    (Oh, and weren’t you just the cutest little girl?!?)

    That looked like fun! That sweater will be adorable on your niece.
