Beautiful weather

Gorgeous weather

It was like 70 degrees here today, so what you're looking at is an open window! You're probably not jealous, but I'm hoping everyone in the Midwest will be.

Tiny Crab

Found this little guy in an oyster tonight at work.

I'm done with all of the smallest squares, but I still have a long way to go...

Homemade Shortcakes


So, I got this Planet Earth daily calendar for Christmas, and typically the pictures are something really pretty. So yesterday when I saw this guy, I was a little freaked out. Plus, wouldn't he work better for a Monday?

What I came home to the other night

Cat + yarn = a huge mess.

The cat got into the bag of yarn I'm using for my blanket. There were unrolled balls of yarn on all three floors of the house when I came home from work. So that was fun.

A Cupcake Tasting

Cassie's niece, Maile, is having her 8th birthday at Smeeks on Friday. She asked me to make cupcakes for it. I put together this cupcake tasting for her today so she could test each flavor and pick which one she wants for Friday. She did the tasting with her Mom, Grandmother, and Cass. It was so fun! The results are in, and it was a tie between Vanilla and PB&J : )

Soup & Sandwich Plate

I got a set of these for Christmas from Pam, Shannon, Michael, Jenny, & Jack. They're so great...I love them!

mom and grandmas

I scanned this while I was at my parents' house. It's my mom with my two grandmas, and I think it's my mom's bridal shower (which would explain the late-70's vibe).

I made a chalkboard
