happy saturday

Hey everyone, how are your weekends going? I am having a nice weekend so far. Tuesday I learned how to crochet a granny square with my mom's friend Lu. I am sooo excited, and I can't stop thinking about making more.

This was my first attempt at making a square without the watchful instruction of Lu...

But I quickly realize what I was doing wrong, and did much better the next time around...

My mom wants me to make her a blanket, so yesterday I went out and bought some yarn in pretty colors to start making it.

It's dark purple, teal and chocolate brown. I was going for the 'peacock' look. The purple and the brown are more different looking in person. It looks pretty :)

Today I received a package in the mail without any sender on the outside. I was excited and I quickly tore the package open to reveal a gift from Kotex. Samples of pads and tampons. Thanks I guess? I've got no clue why they sent these to me!! Haha!

I had a 40% off coupon for Borders, so I used it to buy the first and third Sookie Stackhouse novels (they didn't have the second one :[ ), as recommended by Chelsey. I can't wait to start them!!

Aren't these the cutest things you have ever seen? I kind of think that I need one.


  1. Hey! Great work on the granny squares! I'm glad to see that you kept on trying until you got the process down. I'll look forward to seeing a picture of your mom's blanket when it's done! :o)

  2. Thanks Deb! I never give up on something I REALLY want to learn. Failure just makes me angry and more determined to figure it out =P I'm hoping the blanket can be done by Christmas!

  3. I just started the first Sookie Stackhouse book! I'm excited to read them too.

    Oh, and I love the peacock look! That blanket is going to be beautiful!

  4. I love Sookie!!!! I've read them all! I love Eric actually!! And I love your granny squares! ;)
