After a few failed attempts, I’m on my way to making a couple new winter scarves. I love the look of the big chunky scarves and decided to start knitting them myself instead of buying them from the store.

Last night I finished my first multi-colored scarf. I was pretty happy with the way my first one turned out. Thanks to youtube videos I was able to teach myself how to cast on and cast off on the stitch.

Next project is another multi-colored scarf just using different yarn.


I had a cold the entire weekend and today I am finally starting to feel  like myself again. I still have a runny nose, but was able to make a big breakfast on Sunday, get my car washed and make a Target run without feeling like I needed a 4-hour nap. 

Spring Showers.

I’m on the hunt for a cute umbrella. Spring showers are right around the corner, so I need a super cute umbrella that brightens an otherwise gloomy day. Here are just a few of the adorable ones I have found.

5 Things to Look Forward To This Month.

Hello, hello. 2013 has already been a great year and very exciting so far.  In January I thought ‘Wow, this month went quickly’ and I am thinking the same thing about February so far. I compiled a list of the five things I am most excited about that I have coming up! 

Today I get to see my mom! She is coming down tonight with customers from work: we are going to go to a Pacers game, staying at the Hilton & having breakfast Thursday morning. 

Tomorrow Jake I celebrate our first Valentine’s Day! We both have to work 9am-9pm on Thursday so no big plans! 🙂

3 days until my Brother visits Indianapolis! Robbie and his friend Taylor are coming down Saturday night. They are going to stay at my apartment after we go out in Broadripple for the night.

19 days until I will be in Mexico! Leaving on the 3rd of March and staying in New Orleans for the night. Then we are cruising to Progreso Mexico and Cozumel!

31 days until Mary Helen visits for St Patty’s Day! We are celebrating St Patty’s Day weekend in Chicago with some friends from Purdue!

This is going to be an exciting month!!! 🙂
