I'm back for real this time!

First of all I'd like to apologize to those who entered in my giveaway... I ended up staying longer than expected and my moms Internet was down the whole time I was there. I have tons of pictures to post of my trip, though right now I am still in lazy mode and I still haven't gotten things unpacked, which means my camera cord is somewhere in the rubble.

Without further ado the winner of my spring time bear contest is....

Number one! Congratulations Whisp3rd! If you could please email me your mailing address to p1nk@live.com I'll have your loverly bear sent out to you shortly.

I'm back...did you miss me?

Ok so I am not back that quick....
By the time my love-ah got home from work we had hellacious storms, tornado warnings and the like... Until 10 P.M. Ugh...So I am still here. My favorite part of this whole fiasco is the way the tornado sirens go off and it gets dark all of a sudden,naturally I look around for the triangle head guy from Silent Hill. Since it is too late to leave out I will be leaving in the morning, weather permitting. Stupid crazy Georgia weather, I swear it aims to screw up my day. Meh!

And for fun... Since I love my furbabies, and I haven't showed them off yet.
Fritz and his mama Battly

and my all time favorite shot of Peanut...
Banana-Split Dog!

I am leaving for real this time =)



trip anxiety...

I can't sleep... Either I am too excited about seeing my Mama and Katie or I am worried about leaving my dad alone for a few days. I think it's leaning more towards my Dad... Gabe will only be staying for a day and then coming back to Georgia on Sunday. My mom lives in Tallahassee, it's only a four hour drive... So it's not like I am going cross-country or anything. I admit I worry wayyy too much, I have been taking care of /helping my dad since July of last year and even though at times I get irritated to no end at his hard head self, I know it is where I am supposed to be ( without getting to religious...) and where God wants me to be, so leaving(even if it is only for a week) is unsettling and nerve wracking! It makes me feel good to know that I'm of some help and if he needs anything I am there to help and he doesn't go without. Plus, I know he would do the same for me =) Isn't this worry-wart role supposed to be reversed? lol. He can take care of himself to a point, he just can't walk very far or stand very long due to his knees...Poor fella... I know he'll be fine! I am a mother hen type so even though I know he will be okay my mind won't rest! When I have babies of my own I am so sure my mother hen complex will go into overdrive and I will die of an anxiety attack lol...

With all of that bat shit crazy stuff said... Happy trails my friends :) I'll be returning on the 19th!

vintage is love

I have no luggage whatsoever, other than a black square box with wheels that has served more as a cat scratching post and cat bed than been useful. Since I am going to visit my Mama and little sister for a week come Friday... I really needed some luggage, so being the resourceful person I am, and not paying an outrageous price for something I will only use maybe once a year... I went to my favorite thrift store and scored some vintage olive green luggage for under ten bucks.

Check it out, the insides are still great looking, the mirror is still intact, now that is some good luggage! Except for the old musty smell, a couple of dryer sheets and the sun should cure that....

The best part? Tucked in the corner of the smaller case was a set of keys to both suit cases =DNow all I need is some vintage stickers for the outside and I am set =D

there is something seriously wrong here...

Let's rewind to Friday, the weather was so balmy and nice....

It is now snowing? What is wrong with this picture.. I knew it was going to be freezy today but snow? Bah!
You have to remember I was born and raised in central Florida so anything under 50 is freezing to me.

Last night I made the most yummy desert ever, I grilled some pineapple (in the freezing cold)

The results:

I know it might sound gross to grill fruit, but it is so good. It brings out the sweetness times 10 and caramelizes it... This would also make a nice fruity salsa.

I know you guys must be getting tired of me posting desserts but I have a major sweet tooth =D

warm feet

Last night I was searching for an easy slipper pattern to knit or crochet, I really wanted to knit since I have been crocheting like nobodies business... Needless to say I couldn't find anything that tickled my fancy... So I drafted a patten, and an hour later I made these little pretties. They were made with Red Heart-Light Rasberry, the lighter pink is Vannas Choice-Rose with a size K hook, the whole slipper is a series of SCs, and the top part is DCs.

They are so comfy, warm, and fit perfect. I left the open spaces because I am going to string through some ribbon to cinch them up a bit more. The best part is they can be costomized to fit any foot easily... I think a pair of these will be my next giveaway. :-D Turns out I made these babies just in time the temp is supposed to drop to 27...Ick.



my weekend in pictures...


ughh snotty sinus painnn and computer errors

My head is killing me! So today I had a bright idea to get my busted laptop out and try to play mr.fix-it.... Here is the carnage.

This is after I took it apart to make sure things were plugged in and such ( still no luck). A while back ago it decided to crap out because one of my furbabies knocked it off my kitchen counter and I kept getting "media, blah blah blah check cable...XX0013." Some how in all this mayhem I lost a directional key.. Please don't ask how, I have no clue it is probably under the stove or fridge in a dust bunnies tummy. So now my dear laptop has a nipple, that is least of my concern. I have went to the ultimate low and decided to format the sucker. Why, with all the technology in the world have they still not made a dumb ass version of windows? Example: Instead of giving me some crazy error message that I cannot possibly comprehend, why can't it tell me where the "media" is located, and say "hey you big retard, I got dropped on the floor my hard drive is screwed"... I am only assuming it is referring to my hard drive (which in no way is damaged!) Come on now... I am pretty computer savvy I know when something looks busted up or unplugged, apparently my computer doesn't seem to agree or comprehend. Hopefully my plan of formatting will work *crosses fingers* if not I will just have to spend the sixty bucks to get a new hard drive. Bah! [/end rant]

I almost forgot, I finally uploded the picture of the grill carnage ( I love the word carnage)from this post.


<3 spring! + giveaway (read to the bottom of this post for giveaway info)

I love spring, I love the colors, the smells, and hitting those huge bumble bees with books and watching them zing across the yard ( don't worry they are tough little creatures and they happily buzz away) My allergies have been giving me hell, which kept me in bed most of yesterday and today which gave me a reason to make this little darling. She is made of brown, yellow and white acrylic yarn. From the top of her ear to her toes she messures 9 inches exactly. She was made with a size K crochet needle. She was very much inspired by Amigurumi World


How would you like to own your own spring time bear?

All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite spring color, and a way for me to contact you (e-mail)

Bear can be made into a boy version if you wish.

Now for a clause of sort: This item comes from a smoke-free, pet friendly home. Also, the bears eyes are safty eyes meaning they can be pulled out with a whole lot of effort, they are nearly impossible to get out but it can happen which may be a choking hazzard so with that being said...The bear you will win will not be this bear, the only thing that will change is the color of her dress. Good luck! ( I really hope that makes sense, sinus medicine+coffee is making me loopy)

Edit to add: Winner will be announced on April 20th!
