Hey everyone! How’s it going? I had one heck of a week this week. I barely was able to do anything knitting today. And even then i didn’t knit…i was duplicate stitching stuff. haha.
But first! THE BAG!!
This was given to me tonight by dear Debbie (Mary, Janice…you can’t tell me you didn’t see this coming! HAHAH)
Today was Give-Jen-Free-Retro-Vintage-Stuff day from Debbie 🙂 She gave me the bag after I was all OOHing and AAhing the fabric print. 🙂 super cute!!! THANK YOU, DEBBIE!
Look at what else Debbie gave me…i’ve been dreaming of this ugly lamp for a little while. 🙂
As I carried this out of the house, Mary and Janice couldn’t believe I wanted it. I’m going to put this baby on one of my nightstands in my room. I don’t know if it’s going to be able to fit on the nightstand. But I’m going to try. As I proudly carried this to my car, Mary and Janice laughed at me b/c the freaking thing was as big as I am. I have included a pic of the lamp w/ a hamper for a size comparison. 🙂 it’s huge.
Janice said I could dye the lampshade in a diff. color…but i argued it won’t match the glass. hahahah! I think once it gets a good cleaning, it’ll sparkle like new. 🙂
What else has happened this week? I went to the State Fair of Texas w/ P-la on Thurs. It was a beautiful day out. COOOL, breeeezy…the perfect day to go to the fair and inhale alot of fried foods and go into a fried food coma after. 🙂 I went to the fair w/ my brother the weekend before, but we went the day of the TX/OU game. too crazy. So i didn’t get to try too much. He did eat his share of funnel cake. that boy loves funnel cake. he ate 3 while at the fair. THREE.
But when I went w/ P-La, we had a bit of a plan. She printed up the list of fried foods we could try. hahahaha!! What did we hit first? the Chicken Fried Bacon. That’s right. 🙂
I really didn’t have any desire to try it. But I admit, i was curious. We got there and there was no line. It’s kismet. 🙂 hahaha. And i must say…Oh..My…GAWD. It was so freaggin GOOOOOD!!!! P-La and i shared the order. you get 6 pieces for $5. I wanted to get another order, but I feared ridicule. actually, I wanted to leave room for other fried goodness. If we had room after all this, I wanted to get more Chicken Fried Bacon. Luckilly, we were so full and sick afterward, no need to run for the CFB. 🙂
But we ate other things. 🙂
So i didn’t eat all this fried food. I ate the strawberry thing on the left, P-la ate the Fried PBJ & B…and we got free ice cream cones. 🙂 the rest of the pics were taken for fun. I have a bunch more pics of the signs…but i’m too lazy to post here. check out my Flickr if you know my id if you must see it all. 🙂
After our indulgences, we left and i was having horrible food coma. I feel so bad b/c P-la wasn’t as stupid as I was. She was talking to me and I think i zoned in and out of consciousness. 🙂 sorry, P-la! 🙂
i served as photog for my friend Kristy’s wedding on Sunday. I get so nervous when asked to do these things. I’m not a pro, so i get very very very nervous. I have to say, it was one of the best weddings I had ever been to in my life. Weddings have become such an orchestrated show sometimes, or it’s about how you top other weddings you have seen….that wasn’t here. The wedding was at a park in Plano under the gazebo that was there. The officiant was British, so he had a rockin’ accent as he did the ceremony. hahaa. The bride and groom were so happy. I felt the love. Thanks guys for letting me do your pics.
Botgurl and I also hit the Weezer concert Tues night. Thanks, Bot, for going with me. 🙂
Wait a sec. This is a knitting blog isn’t it? hahahahahahah I haven’t done much knitting in the last week due to all the stuff I’ve been at. But I have a baby shower this weekend that a gift has to be finished by. I’m almost done. I finished seaming up this sweater on Sunday. I’ve been working on the duplicate stitch on the bottom.
Will I get it done in time? yeah. I have half a letter left to dup. stitch. Then i need to clip ends, take pics, and present the gift. I’m hoping it’s a hit at the shower.
I’m still working on socks, still working on those Christmas stockings. i haven’t even touched the stockings since last week. EEEEEK. I need to get on the ball.
