Spats. Proves a point

Often times, my husband does not appreciate my wardrobe.
Who are we joking...All the time. 
But I know, somewhere deep down inside...he loves it.
Otherwise, he wouldn't have married.
I feel my style has gotten a little more refined over the years.


So, today, he was commenting how my outfit today was super weird. 
Which... I'll admit, my hair was a MESS, so as doo rag will do.
But I said, "I bet if I walked into the mall, somebody would totally comment on how cute it was. "
(because, this has happened on multiple occasions, where I go out in public in an outfit that just makes him cringe, but inevitably, someone always comments how cute it is.  Complete Strangers mind you.)

So he says "I bet if I were to take your photo and send it to your sisters, they would say it was weird."

Game ON. 

Hali immediatly calls and says how CUTE it is. (She did say my hair thing was weird, but as I said, it was unruly)

Still waiting on the status of Hannah. (Also commented on my hair.)


 I feel I win.

Except for this outfit may be a little weird.

Confidence...that's all you need.


I am aching to decorate a house...
I have all these project just pending until it happens.

Please send out good vibes into the world ...for we currently have one under contract. 

Ideas are being pinned like mad!

Dear God,
I wanna take a moment, 
not to ask for anything from you, 
but simply to thank you for all that I have.

Yes, she thinks I'm Asian!!

My friend, Michelle has a little girl named Naomi. 
Naomi is a beautiful 4 year girl with super bouncy curls, who I really don't get to see much, since she lives in Mexico and is usually in bed when Michelle and I are out playing. 
Nonetheless, I was at their house the other night.
Naomi was staring at me and said,
"You look like Mulan."
"Really?!" I say, I'm thinking that it's because of my short hair. 
"How Come?"
"You have the same eyes." Naomi says. 

Stunned Silence.

I am brought to tears.
My world is now complete. 
A 4 year old knows that I am Asian.

Olive's Blanket but Mustard

I knew I was going to make this as soon as I saw it. 

I also knew that mustard was going to be a main color.
Mainly, because I heart Mustard and a good friend, namely Natalie, had a wonderful gram that was giving up some yarn. 

By some, I mean, a LOT of yarn.  Luckily...I was able to snag some.  Again, by some, I mean 4 boxes full, and I felt bad about taking that much, but I barely dented it.
Now, what to do with it?

Dottie Angel has a pattern here!
Pinned here.

Sometimes I think "Yeah, I bet running feels good."

A little more Halloween

Jan was teaching me how to be a man.
Notice my chest hair.

1 Dog, 2 Dog.

Jan moved home along with Bowser.
He's just 9 months and he weighs more than Kona,
while Kona is twice as wide as he is.

I was trying to fix the weird flash in their eyes.

And this is what i got...can you even tell?
they have googgly eyes!

Busy Bodies

It seems like forever since I really sat down and wrote a blog.  We've been super busy!  My little Etsy shop is getting busier (hooray!)  

Halloween came and went, with me being solo. 

Derek got "sick" the night of our Halloween party (he really did.)  The Queen of hearts and Michelle (she's the we can do it lady! Can't actually remember what she is called) and I were the single ladies of the night!  Derek and I were going to go as a Mail Order Bride and the Nerd that bought one. . . 
So instead I decided to dress up as the Nerd and a male.

So much more comfy!
I got to be in both photos...since I was a male as well.

The Romantic

I was hugging the husband the other day.

Looking deeply into my eyes, he says.

"Your eyes are gray today."
Looking further into my eyes. . .
"You know the scales on trout  (umm?)
Sparkly, scaley, greenish. . . "

He gets silent then, realizing that maybe that wasn't a good comparison.
