I forgot my Blogiversary!

I was having this blog epiphany a few minutes ago. In the midst of that epiphany, I realized that I missed my blogiversary! Sorry blog! I am apparently the neglectful husband in this relationship. (at present you can blame Stephenie Meyer! She has me simply obsessed!) Above is my obligatory "I'm sorry" flower offering. Um, about the poor photography......It's the thought that counts......right??? As of October 19th I have been blogging for a year now. I know that my readership is pathetically low (good thing, pressure just makes me ramble on aimlessly......oops, I guess I do that anyway!) but thanks for sticking with me. It is fun, and my most successful attempt at regular journaling. Now about that epiphany.......

I was just reading another blog and came across Blogging Without Obligation. I love this. I feel guilty about neglecting my blog WAY too often. It usually just keeps me away longer. So no more! I will not feel guilty about reading vampire books (over and over again) instead of knitting, sewing, and blogging (I will, however, continue to feel guilty about neglecting the laundry! LOL) I will go on my merry way and update when I want to......oh how freeing! I love it!

Okay, so I was just reading one of these on another friends blog, when I remembered I had promised Natalie I would do this too.....better late than never.....right???

My Husband

(Seriously! The man is ridiculously handsome!)

What is his name? Jeremy
How long have you been together? We met almost 8 years ago, and have seldom been apart since
How long did you date? 2 1/2 years
How old is he? 35!! Wow.....that looks old! (It's okay baby, we both know you still look younger than I do!)
Who eats more? Jeremy does
Who said I love you first? I did.....by a long shot, but what can I say persistence pays off!
Who is taller? Jeremy (tall dark and handsome!)
Who sings better? I do, though Jeremy's singing is WAY more entertaining!
Who is smarter? Yeah, I'm not ready to concede this one, but Jeremy is a very intelligent man, so I am going to have to say it is a tie!
Whose temper is worse? Mine is......unless he is watching the news or a football game! LOL
Who does the laundry? We both do, but I have more clothes and therefore he does more out of sheer desperation! (I hate laundry!)
Who does the dishes? Both again.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Jeremy.....always
Who pays the bills? Jeremy does. We used to split it up when I was working, but now it is all him! LOL
Who mows the lawn? Jeremy does.....but I would. I really like mowing the grass
Who cooks dinner? Me. (or on the weekend the fabulous chefs at our favorite restaurants!)
Who drives when you are together? Usually Jeremy
Who is more stubborn? I am. Jeremy is a very patient man.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? We agree to disagree.....enough said! ;)
Whose parents do you see the most? Mine. They live closer.
Who kissed who first? Jeremy kissed me first. It was amazing.......*sigh* He can still take my breath away.
Who asked who out? Jeremy asked me out......I would have never dared. Have you seen the picture above??? He is seriously HOT!
Who proposed? Long story....really there never was a proposal. I am still a bit miffed! (if he ever asks for advice for a anniversary present suggest a proper proposal!)
Who is more sensitive? I am.
Who has more friends? I do, but his insane schedule doesn't really encourage a social life.
Who wears the pants in the family? I think we both do. We communicate really well, and are often on the same page anyway.

So I am supposed to tag more people....but I will go on the honor system instead.

Knitting Season

Wow, September flew by! All of the sudden it is crisp and cool.....perfect knitting weather! YAY! When I learned to knit last year about this time, I was addicted. I couldn't imagine a day going by that didn't include knitting, but once spring and summer came, I wanted to put down my needles and do other things. That has passed! There is just something so comforting about knitting in cool weather. I have a few WIPs that I need to finish up, and I am making hats for the girls. Then I think I might just try to tackle a sweater for me! Maybe........seaming still makes me nervous........ :)

Now on to a couple of completed projects.

Do you remember the doll I made Eve for her birthday?? Mia was Eve's favorite thing. She took her everywhere......that was until a visit to Kohls one day in June. I searched the store for and hour. I am not sure who cried more, me or Eve. Well, I made some dolls for a friend and I decided it was time to make another Mia . The Olive pattern gets easier every time I do it, which is good, because the first time was a PITA! So here is Mia with her new friends, Livy and Kitty. I finished Mia in the middle of the night, and decided to put her in bed with Eve. When she woke up there was a squeal from her bedroom and she ran into me saying "Mommy! Mia came home!!"

This fun package was for a secret mom swap I do every month. The girl I had sews quite a bit, so I kept is simple. I did a draw string bag with some note cards and a little pin cushion that matched. I also included a box of chocolates, because, well, who doesn't need chocolate?? I hope she likes it!
