watching:::  gilmore girls
                       season 3 episode 2 'take the deviled eggs...'

lorelai takes rory to sherry's baby shower and gets forced into attending.  she starts freaking out and ends up in sherry's bathroom where she starts to rearrange her medicine cabinet.  when the girls get back to stars hallow they see jess's car and feeling bitter about him wrecking rory's car they use the deviled eggs that sherry made them take home from the shower and deviled-egg his car. 

the best part is when they try to peel out and make a get-a-way, but they can't get the tires to squeal so they make the sound themselves.  ohhhh and when luke tells jess, "they must really hate you," when they find jess's car deviled-egged.

giveaway winner

Amy, I bet you were wondering if you would win... hahaha. 
I will get the package to post in a couple days.  It's sitting here ready, but I'm still looking into which women's shelter or organization to donate the others scarfs too. I'm not sure if it will be local or if I will need to mail another package. So the couple days wait explained.

Since you won do you have an organization preference?

giveaway::: ruffles, ruffles, and more ruffles

about this time last year i helped teach how to knit ruffle scarfs to our relief society sisters.  i went out and bought 2 skeins of ruffle yarn to make a scarf and told myself i'm not going to get any more of this yarn and will not be making a bunch of scarfs.  then i needed to go back to michael's and pick up a few skeins for others at the activity. 
well, they were on sale so i bought a few extra because i didn't want to frog the scarf i made to show how to make one and a few sisters said they wanted to make scarfs but wouldn't be able to make the activity.  so we made plans to get together later that month and i needed a couple skeins for that. now i had several skeins of ruffle yarn in my stash. 
then there was a really good sale where they were 80% off.  i couldn't resist, though i should have.  now i have more than i care to admit in my stash.
the other day i was helping a friend figure out how to crochet a ruffle scarf. when we were finished with her scarfs i pulled out my stash thinking i need to do something with my stash of ruffle yarn.  i put on season 1 of downton abbey, started knitting, and by the time i got to season 2 i had quite a few scarfs made.
giveaway:::  if would like a ruffle scarf leave a comment and i will randomly pick a winner early next week.  don't forget to let me know which one is your favorite. 
ohhhh and if you leave me a link to a cute project made with ruffle yarn i will put your name in 2x for the drawing.  there has to be something different to make with this yarn!

birthday and the beach

I took my Girlies across town for a birthday party this afternoon.  I left prepared to be stuck in weekend traffic for an hour.  We got lucky and didn't have to deal with any traffic which was awesome and odd. So having some time to kill we went to the beach.
My Girlies noticed the spray from the breaking waves and took off running.
They wrote a birthday message in the sand for their friend.
 Then took a walk down the beach to search for some seashells for the birthday girl.
