My Life According to Me

This blog is about the happenings in my world.

Catching up random style July 8, 2010

We had an excellent 4th of July. Lots of fireworks and yummy food! My mother-in-law got a firework permit for us to pop our fireworks at her house, she also cooked a wonderful dinner and invited my parents over to partake in the festivities. It was a lot of fun.

During the day Hubby tried to dig a hole to China with black cats.

The result of the quality time we spent with the fine folks at the firework warehouse.

Some of my fireworks. I like the kid friendly fountains and sparklers.

I also managed to finish a toe up sock. The pattern is from Wendy Knit’s blog and the yarn is Knitpicks Stroll Handpainted sock yarn in the make believe colorway.

And I started the second sock.

Now for the random portion of the blog.

1. I went to my 10 year high school reunion last month. Out of 15 graduates 5 made it to the reunion. I was the only girl.

2. While in Texas we also met up with my childhood friends Ryan and Michelle. We all literally grew up together. And here we are all grown up and stuffs.

3. We also drove by the house my parents had built when I was little.

4. I read several books between last post and this one.

5. I decided to rip out my Rick sock and reuse the yarn for some basic toe up socks and use different yarn for the Rick pattern. I think the pattern will pop better in a more solid color yarn.

6. My new camera takes really good pictures. Especially of flowers.

7. I ordered two new shawl kits (one for me and one for mom) and some sock yarn from knitpicks. The order should be here next Wednesday. YAY!

8. I did some clearance shopping at Old Navy this evening. I walked away with some cute jammie pants, a t-shirt, and a super cute cardigan. I love clearance shopping!

9. We saw the following movies:

– Prince of Persia = very good movie

– Eclipse = it was okay….the book was better

– The Last Airbender = it was pretty good (the cartoons are pretty good too)
