Someday I will make this

Remember the dachshund sweater I posted about a few weeks ago? Well the adorable dog modeling that sweater, Crush, has broken her leg and it's requiring expensive medical attention. Flint Knits created this adorable sweater pattern to help raise money to go towards his recovery. The pattern is only $6 so hurry and click over to her website and buy it! 

Of course I bought. What? No, I can't knit this. Are you kidding me? I haven't even made a plain sweater yet, much less one with multiple colors! In fact, I haven't made anything with multiple colors. Maybe by the time I figure it out I'll have a niece or nephew to knit for.


Much to do

....but I don't wanna.

There are so many things I need to do today.
  • Laundry
  • Groceries
  • Target
  • Gym
  • Cleaning the bathroom (seriously, that one is my nemesis and never goes away)
  • Unload the dishwasher
  • Make calls about selling Krispy Kreme donuts as a fundraiser

But I am tired. Yesterday's 8 miles kicked my butt. My entire body hurts. Maybe I'll do what has become a Sunday pattern (which is why nothing is ever getting done) and stay in my pajamas all day while I watch television and nap off and on.

There is a little brown dog sitting behind me staring a hole in my shoulder. I suppose that means I need to get dressed and take her for a walk.


Rain is a good thing

I've been on a country music kick for a couple of months and a few weeks ago, for some reason, I was flipping channels on the tv and landed on a station showing country music videos. This video for a song by Luke Ryan came on. Of course, I watched it because Luke is H.O.T hot. But the song got under my skin and now I have to listen to it like 5 times a day. It's a sickness. Somebody help me. When I was walking 8 miles by myself the chorus was stuck on repeat in my head. If I start saying "warsh" you have my permission to slap me.



Yeah, so I've started dating again.

I hate it just a little bit. 

It's nerve wracking and stressful and it freaks me out.

But a good first kiss....makes it all worth it.


It's fresh strawberry season!

The strawberry farm near my house opened yesterday so on my way home for lunch today I stopped and bought a pound. Delicious! I'll have to go back this weekend and pick my own but today, in my work clothes, was not the day.



See, I told you I really did read the Twilight books.
(worst photo of me ever and I'm showing ya'll anyway)


Smart Cat

10 miles

This morning I ran 10 miles.

Okay, so I didn't actually run all of them but you know what I mean. Running did occur. I was slow but I don't feel like dying now and that is a good thing. However, I do feel the need for a nap.



Embroidered cropped pants at Talbots. Also available in a skirt! Or Bermuda shorts. I live on the East coast now (well, nearly). I could pull this look off, right? Hopefully they will go on sale soon.

Happy Freaking Birthday to me!

Yes, I know I'm many months early. But what better way to celebrate the month of October but by one of my favorite stores EVER opening in Raleigh? That's right, The Container Store is finally opening a location in North Carolina. I am so freaking excited. Seriously. You have no idea.



It's pine tree pollen season again. There is a fine layer of yellow dust all over everything. It's disgusting.


Let's talk about sex....

The girls (and Mr. Big, I hope!) are back.

Lulu Strikes Again

I came home after running some errands to find this book in the middle of the floor and shreds of the cover all around. Thank goodness it was one of my books and not the library's! For shame, Lulu! She knew she was in trouble too because she didn't come out from under the covers.

Someone was bad
See that look of guilt in her eyes?
Bad dog!

Beautiful day

It's another beautiful day here in North Carolina. I'm off work because of Good Friday and after staying up until the wee hours of the morning doing absolutely nothing I'm trying to motivate myself to do something. But it's much more relaxing to lie on the floor in the sun. Now I understand why Lulu does it all the time.
