This weekend my littlest sister turned 9 years old!!! It is so hard to believe that she is growing up this fast. I feel like just yesterday she was super tiny. Anyway, I was not able to be home for her birthday, but I was up the week before so I gave her a present then. I gave her a call on her birthday and as is to be expected she was all kinds of goofy and slightly hyper because it was her birthday. She says I call her crazy all the time but it is because she makes some ridiculous comments on a regular basis. She is basically a mini me except most of the time she does not have any inhibitions like I do. She isn’t afraid to be herself and I love that about her. I know she is only 9 and still has to go through high school, but I have a feeling she will keep her individual identity. I love her to pieces!
In other weekend news, I had the day off on Friday and we went climbing! That was wonderful and yet totally made us realize how much we sucked after not climbing for a while. Saturday, I was not feeling good at all so I ended up calling off of work. I had a killer migraine plus snot was my best friend. I think it was my body telling me I needed to just chill out and take a break because I have just been going going going for weeks. Graduation here I come! Sunday, I felt better so that two day break must’ve been just what I needed. Overall, not a half bad weekend. But here we are, off to another week.
So, today is Tuesday yet again. I feel like Monday is just a day I push through and then Tuesday comes and I start to realize how busy my week is. This is when reality sets in a little bit lol.
Last week I talked about how awesome Chaco is. I got to wear my chaco sandals almost all week. It has been a little colder over the last couple days so I have not worn them.
This week I want to talk about my favorite yarn to use, which is Peaches and Creme Yarn. If you have not tried them or have not heard of them, you can either find them at Walmart, or check out their website here.They are made in Canada but it is 100% U.S.A. grown cotton so it is an all natural yarn. I love using organic products and this one has just amazing colors. I have shown you some of the colors that I have around or some that I have used in some of my projects. They are honestly such a great product and their little balls of yarn are not expensive at all.
I used one of their balls of yarn yet again as I finished up my hat this week and as I start my next project today. (It is a secret about what it is.)
This is my newest hat! I just love the colors! They layered on each other so beautifully and I used the Floral Fantasy color twist from Peaches and Creme. It is just a great hat and so color to add to my spring wardrobe. Again, if you want one, I am selling them for $20.
I am also using a nice light blue for my next project this week. This is also from Peaches and Creme. It is such a light and yet strong yarn. I would tell anyone about it and encourage anyone use it for their projects.
Well, I must be off as I do some work around the house, plan my topics for the April Challenge and then head off to work!
