Some random thoughts and baby booties.

Hello, my beautiful friends! I am currently sitting in a local coffee shop (LBee's, really fun place) taking advantage of their free wi-fi, eating a delicious piece of chocolate pie, and sipping on a chai latte.

I love chocolate pie.

I love chai lattes.

That's all I have to say to you today.


Kidding! I'm just in a silly mood right now. Life without internet at home has made me a bit loopy. Seriously, though, it's actually kinda cool. I've been pumping out mail really good (and if I was smart I would have remembered to bring my camera so I could upload the pictures I've been taking!) and being really productive around my house. I cleaned out my fridge today, y'all. That's always a huge accomplishment. I can now slack off for the rest of the week, yes!!

In some cool news, Tuesday was my last day at Staples! I got a job at Warehouse One as a full-time key-holder - go me! I worked today, and I folded about 100 t-shirts and 150 camisoles. Very exciting. Then I went home and folded 2 loads of laundry and have another 2 waiting for me when I get home. Oh life. Anyway, the job is good so far. I just really hate the training stage. I like it when I'm confident in what I'm doing. Hopefully soon!

I've been looking on Craftgawker and Ravelry for some knitting patterns. My dear friend Callie has a bun in the oven and I want to make something to send her! Here are some of my considerations:

Winter Baby Boots
Baby Moccasins
Baby Uggs
Baby Janes
As you can tell, I want to knit some booties! (Funny story: when I was born, one of my best friends was living next to my parents. Her mom knit a pair of baby booties and baked some buns, and brought them over to my parents. 20 years later when I met my friend, she realized this and told her mom. Then when I met her mom she declared "Booty Girl!") I'm not sure if I'm crazy about buttons on baby booties, so I would just skip them if I picked one of those.

That's all for now, my dears. Keep it real! Don't forget about me, breakfast clubbers!

I'm still here

What up, my peeps? As you may have noticed, I've been pretty silent as of late. I didn't mean for that to happen. I fully intend to get you all caught up on my life - it's been pretty ridiculous lately! Thing is, though... Today is our last day with internet at home. Yes, we have decided to cancel our internet service. Here are some reasons why we chose to do so:
- Chris and I both spend a lot of time online when we could be doing more productive things
- In the same vein, we spend a lot of time looking at what other people are creating when we could be creating things ourselves
- Saving $55 a month would be sweet
- We can go to the library and coffeehouses when we need to use the internet, which is also kind of like a fun outing at the same time.

So I'm not disappearing, by any means. I still have my iPhone, so I pretty much will do everything except blog because I don't know of a good app for blogging. I just hope that it won't be too long before you will hear from me again.
