I Heart Tennessee!!

Rob and I went hiking in the mountains of Tennessee today. Isn't this beautiful!! According to Rob it is beautiful, but not as beautiful as me! Awwwww! He's a keeper you guys. We had a blast hiking in the rain and splashing in puddles. We were soaked to the bone by the time we made it back to the car, but that didn't bother us one bit. I highly recommend kissing in the rain while standing on the edge of a mountain looking out over a waterfall. Too romantic!!

Getting Closer

I'm nearly done with this blanket, and I can't wait to start the next project!! Now it's time to decide what to knit next. I am reluctant to knit a sweater due to the fact that I most likely can't fit into a size small anymore. Grrr! This explains my absense from the pictures, in case you haven't noticed. No I'm not pregnant. That would be a whole lot better excuse than I sat on my butt for 2 1/2 years! Anyways, I've been working out every day and dieting, so maybe you'll see me again come Spring? In the meantime maybe I should just knit a shawl...

Can't Catch A Break!!!

My stupid cord for my stupid laptop is broken, so unless Rob is home I can't use it!!! He came home today, so I was able to order a new one. That thing better come soon!!! In other news, I woke up to some very sad family news this morning. No need to bring the blog down with the details. Now for some happy news...

My wonderful, awesome, incredible, amazing, super duper husband built me my shelves!! Now if there are any recyclers/freecyclers reading, you will love this. The dresser it is sitting on was a hand me down from my mom which I believe was handed down to her. I repainted it the yummy chocolate brown and Rob replaced the drawer knobs. The shelf is built entirely from wood scraps from a friends home renovations. The whole thing cost about 20 bucks!!! Do you notice that it is color coordinated, aside from the bottom left shelf that is all sock and lace weight? Is it crazy that I enjoyed doing that?? Do you think I might like blue??

Last time I posted a picture it actually showed up on my bloglines feed . I just want to see if this was a fluke or not so I'm posting a picture of my first Great Dane Keagen and his little sister Zoƫ.

It's not the best quality of picture, but I love it anyway. Those two just loved each other so much. We miss you Keagen! You were the best!
