We've got a finished cardi! With sleeves! The pattern was actually really easy to follow, and there is a great tutorial video to walk you through the steps (even though my brain took awhile to decipher the difference between front and back post crochet). Now I just need to wash and block it. The sleeves… Continue reading Ta Da!
Hi friends! This is a super quick post since things are pretty busy at the moment! Work is insane and I've had to pass on some of my reports to others. Working in consulting turns you into a hoarder; I don't LIKE giving up assigned reports, but my work load was just not sustainable. And… Continue reading Why Is It May?
Hello friends! I don't know about you all, but it's been a crazy week. I love my job and my projects, but often in consulting, everything just kind of falls on your desk at once and it's hard to balance everything sometimes. So anyway. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on my… Continue reading A Rambling Crafty Update
Hi friends! I should be getting ready for work since I picked up two new projects to manage and I have a ton of stuff to do today but BLOG POST TIME YAYYY! It's been awhile! Hope you all are doing well. I was checking out my soon-to-be new home in Indiana last week! It… Continue reading Travels to Indiana
Happy Valentine's Day! I used to HATE Valentine's Day, and I can definitely understand why it's an irritating holiday to many people. I was single a good chunk of my college years and 20s, and I protested the holiday by wearing black. I'm far from those days now, but part of me wants to wear… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Self-Care
Hello friends! I've been sitting on big news for about a month now, but since I've started telling my coworkers about it this past week, I feel good about announcing it in a public space.* We're moving! To Indiana! (If I were a YouTube vlogger, I would have made that announcement at the 18 minute… Continue reading Big News
Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all had a great start to the new year. We had a ~wild and crazy night~ of watching the Twilight Zone marathon while I knitted and provided emotional support to my dog. I fell asleep around 11 but woke up just before midnight. In my 20s, I went… Continue reading Happy 2019 (With a Hike and Little Trip Down Memory Lane)
Good morning, friends! As I type this, I am drinking coffee, have a knitting project on my lap (I needed a break from the llama amigurumi torso) and am wondering when the Twilight Zone marathon is starting (edit: it's already started, YAY!) I can hardly believe it is already New Year's Eve. What a year.… Continue reading 2018 Recap
I've been wanting to hike Enchanted Rock for quite awhile. If you haven't heard of Enchanted Rock before, it's a beautiful pink granite dome located in the Hill Country. Climbing the Rock is a rite of passage for any Texan. Before my studies intensified in the summer, I was trying to organize a trip to… Continue reading Enchanted Rock and Fredericksburg Trip
Hello friends. I can't believe I get to make this post. I FINALLY PASSED. What's funny is that results were actually released yesterday, but our state board was closed in observance of George H.W. Bush's passing. Apparently results have never been released on a Wednesday before, so it figured that we would have to wait. … Continue reading Happy News
