11 years ago today!

11 years ago today my life changed forever.  I went on my first date with my husband.  We went on one date and have been together ever since.  I guess you could say, "we just knew". 

Aside from that awesome milestone, I also got lots of gifts-- Samsung Galaxy player and some Awesome yarn:

The top pic is Manic Watermelon and the bottom one is Be Mine.  They are both 3 stripe self striping.  I can't wait to cast these on. It is so soft and squooshy.

I purchased the yarn from  Visit her store.. her colors are just like they show, in fact I think they are a little more vibrant in person. Absolutley Gorgeous!

Happy days for me!!!  I'm such a lucky fish!!!

Rockin socks and new toy for me.

Well-  I seem to only be posting once a month, but I am hoping this will change since the aquisition of a new toy.  My husband bought me a Samsung Galaxy player for valentines day which means I have even more access to the internet.  In case you don't know what the Galaxy player is, it is a smart phone without the phone part (comparable to an itouch, but android).  I did not need a phone (we have a great rate on our current phone) but wanted all the cool gadgets of a smart phone. I love, love, love it!! It is so awesome.

Knitting wise, I have been knitting socks galore.  I have knit 4 pairs of socks since Jan 1st.  Well, one pair was a WIP from July of last year and two pairs were for my children, but still, this is a record for me.  I feel that 2012 has been very productive so far and am hoping that more is to come.

I'm trying to get everything organized this year and am purging as much as possible. We'll see how this goes. 

Well- have a great day- will try an update in the next few days.  Have so much to chat about!

2012 is here!

2011 left with a bang and to be honest, even though it wasn't a bad year, I was glad to see it leave.  I feel like a new year is the reason for a new start and new goal setting.  Well, I have set a couple of goals and to keep myself honest (and to remember what they were at the end of 2012), I'm posting them.

Goals for 2012

Fitness: to run "mom's on the run" 5k on mothers day.
food:  to lose another 60lbs.
crafting: To knit 1 pattern a month from my book and magazine stash.
recreation: to fish and camp a lot this year-- spend lots of time outside!

My plan is to revisit these goals in June and see just how far I have gotten on them.  Hope everyone had a fabulous New Year's and have set up some goals for yourself for 2012!
