Thanksgiving in pictures (Friday)

                                                 Baby Cali. She is darling!


                       And now, I would like to introduce a special selection of photos titled:
                                                 "The many faces of Miss Annie."

                             Is she not the cutest thing in the world? She is a blast to be around!
  Holidays can sometimes be hard for me. Not being with my side of the family is a bit sad at times. But I am SO blessed to have Ian's family around. I love them! We ate a ton of food (of course) and we have a ton to eat as leftovers.
  Hope everyone out there had a great time yesterday, and are enjoying the madness that is Black Friday!

Snowed In (Tuesday)

The past few days have been pretty wild. We got a ton of snow! I think there was only about an inch of snow predicted at first, but I think we got at least five inches! Here are some pictures of what it looked like yesterday morning.


     There is something kind of magical about the snow! It makes your surroundings almost unrecognizable. Like you are on vacation somewhere! I was in love with it, until about 3:30pm today. I have been in my apartment for two days, and I am DYING to get out. I may be heading to the grocery store, and I think it will be amazing. Our electric bill is probably going to be through the roof, I've had the heat turned all the way up for two days! But, I think it's allowed when it is about 25 degrees outside.

     Sure, a few lazy days can be awesome. But after two days, and work being closed, I am pretty ready to go outside.

     I did get a LOT of things done though, including a ton of knitted things, which will be on my etsy shop soon! I will share the link as soon as they are available.

 Now I am off to enjoy the evening with my husband, and going on a thrilling grocery store outing.

Cold. (Friday)

It is getting so cold here in Seattle. I am kind of loving it, except for Friday nights that I spend alone(while my hubby is spending time with a friend), trying to
keep warm but my feet are still freezing! But, cold means Christmas is coming! Yay!

I am really inspired by knitting lately. I have plans for a etsy shop in the near future,
and have already sold some things to my co-workers. 

Here's an example of a cute headband I am working on for a coworker!
It's a little blurry though, I apologize.

I feel like this knitting deal is exactly what I needed right now.
I love it, and it just feels right to be doing it!

In other news, my hubby is browsing downtown Seattle tomorrow for
an amazing apartment for us to live in. I know he will find something wonderful, I can feel it.

I've also decided to give myself a challenge. I have to update my blog at least 3 times a week.
I really can do it, but I always forget!

Yarn,  toasty blankets, and headband love,

P.S. Interested in a knitted headband of some sort? Send me an email!

Knit-tastic (Thursday)

The past few days have been relaxing. I've done pretty much nothing except for knit, and watch a bit of tv. I am knitting like a maniac! There is just something about this time of year that inspires me to make all sorts of knitted things.

  Ian captured a picture of me in a freshly knitted hat!
     (Excuse the small stain on my jacket.)
     My blog is so beautiful! I really am in love with it. Miss Stephanie, who's blog is here, designed it for me. I am eternally grateful, as my blogging skills are slim to none. Her blog is awesome, she loves life, and is full of inspiration! Check it out!

I will have a lot more free time in the next month or so, and hopefully that means more blogging!

Witnessing a Miracle (Thursday)

I spent last night in the hospital with my beautiful sister-in-law. She was in labor, and gave birth to my niece, and her second daughter, Cali Grace. I was SO happy that she allowed me to be in the room. I have never witnessed a birth before, and it was incredible.

I can't describe how beautiful it is to welcome a brand new little person into the world. It's shocking how she just seemed to appear into the world all of a sudden. God truly has given women an amazing ability when it comes to having babies.

So, I ran on about 2-3 hours of sleep all day, but it was worth it.

 Doesn't this little face make your heart just melt? I am in love.

And now, I must makeup for the hours of sleep I willingly gave up last night :).

Halloween and other scary things. (Monday)

Halloween was a ton of fun this year. I love getting to dress up, and that I have a job that let's me do so. All the gals at work decided to be dolls. That is me and Miss Becky. She is probably the greatest receptionist any stylist could ask for. Not to mention a great friend :). 
Yesterday, I decided to go for a scarier version of my costume...and turned into this!
Sadly, no white makeup was used on my skin, I really am that pale! It's the lack of any sunshine, I tell you!

Here are a few pictures from the night with my hubby and brother-in-love. Which is a fancy way of saying brother-in-law of course.
                                           Ryan was Tobias from Arrested Development. If you don't know who or what that is, you should find out. It's hilarious.
                                       This picture is scary. What's up with the glowing eyes in the background?
                         My "All-American" husband and I. Literally, that was the title of his costume! Haha!

I love that it is November. Today I went into Starbucks, and was so excited to see all the holiday drinks. Reminded me of how soon Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years is. I am a bit sad that I cannot see my family who live in California this year, but I am so very thankful for the family and friends that are right here in Washington.

And now, I must go to sleep. I will regret it in the morning if I do not!

Lots of love,
