This is the Everything post.
A lot has happened since I last was here in the Land of Blog.
Well, my life right now mostly consists of yarn and food. No, I work too. HELLO! and I clean the house!
Cook, crochet, cook, crochet, bake, crochet, crochet, crochet. Haha.
But in between crochet and cooking, Sean and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving at our house. I decorated the table...
and made pies while our friends made the turkey dinner. Here's Amy's amazingly beautiful roasted turkey.
The past two years I made the entire dinner so it was nice to take a break.
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. For any one out there reading, I am so thankful for the lovely blog friends I have made over the last couple of years. Sincerely, YOU JUST MAKE MY DAY THAT MUCH BETTER. :) You are the maraschino or crochet cherry on top. :)
So, after settling from Thanksgiving, Saturday night, my hubby took me on a date to the movies. * I am spoiled*. We saw The Road, which was partly filmed in Sean's home town, *shout out!* ERIE PA!
My review? Oh, Oscar winning performance and photography/film making. Yet, a very sad, depressing story with very little redemption. Viggo Mortensen??if that's how you spell his name-I don't feel like looking it up, is great.
Then, Monday, Sean had his last comedy improv performance and so I made pumpkin cookies for the after party.
These cookies are the IT of it's. Like this is IT. They are yummy and easy.
Pumpkin Cake Cookies
-Whip 15 oz can pumpkin and 1 box spice cake mix with 1 egg.*you don't even need the egg but I threw it in anyway*
-Spoon on a cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes.
-Top with cream cheese frosting and pretty sugar if you have some.
Cream Cheese Frosting
-Whip 1 1/2 pack cream cheese, room temp, with 1 cube butter, room temp.
-Add 1 cups powdered sugar and 1 tbs vanilla
So here are my crochet projects... Right now I am working on a blue whale you may never see because I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to crochet the tale (or spell tail). I am also working on a super cute kiwi bird. My friend Krystal gave me her tweaked pattern and she's a super Crochet-Genius,capitalized, but I think I messed up already. I have little patience people, little patience.
Elli Cupcake rattle
This is Elli, our friends super-duper adorable baby. *I actually was at her birth only 5 months ago* WOW!
Patty the Pear with her two sisters.
AND...this cutie pa-tootie is a rattle for my niece, Kaidyn.
Cutie girl, Kaidyn :) Isn't she sweet.
Okay, that's it.
