Abbey's Birthday & Goodie Week :)

The week is full of goodies for me :) Tonight I have Knit In night at Starbucks with Knitorious. One of our members spins her own yarn, so she's bringing her wheel and drop spindle to show us how you spin your own yarn, I'm so excited! I can hardly wait.

Then on Friday I'm headed to Arlington with Danette to spend a girls weekend at Susan's house. I can hardly wait, I miss Susan so much, I haven't seen her in awhile and I haven't scrap booked since the last time I saw her. It's been awhile since I've been on a weekend trip away and I'm looking forward to it :) I miss hanging out with my girls :)

This past weekend was Abbey's 2ND Birthday Party, we had a nice turn out. I made Chocolate and Strawberry cupcakes and punch. She got Lot's of Barbie and Mostly Little people stuff which she loved, It was so cute the way she squealed when she opened the little people stuff. Too cute! She loved everything she got because she spent the entire weekend playing with all her goodies. She got a few cute outfits as well, Danette always has the best taste in clothes ;-) I have some pictures from the birthday I'll share below.

I went to the bathroom to cry for a bit last night, I had gotten pretty far on Ashley's Gretel hat and realized that somewhere I had gotten off on rows.. and with all those cables and increases I had to rip the entire thing out and now I'm starting all over again :( I was sick. Ah well, no matter how frustrated I get I must remember that knitting the item is 80% of the fun :) This hat is really fun to knit, I love making cables. Even though it's already brought me to tears once, but PMS did play a part in that. LOL!!!

Rumor has it that the Circuit City Warehouse may be cleared our before the end of this week. So Jake's job with CC will be over. We are waiting to hear from DOT foods. So keep your fingers crossed for us. We're trying to not be stressed about that chapter ending and remembering to welcome the new changes we will face.

I guess that's about it for this time. I have a lot of things I need to get pulled together to get ready for this weekend, I have a ton of pages already done that I need to add to scrapbooks so I can see what I need to work on next, I Scrapbook chronologically. The last time I scrapbooked I caught up on the girls books, so since it's been a few months I should only need to work on those few months :) But I am mostly going down for girlfriend time, so I may not get anything accomplished. LOL!!!

Until next time . . .
