Follow Friday

TGIF! It's been a really long time since I've done a follow Friday - so it's time for me to jump back on the bandwagon!
This week's question:
What is your favorite tv series that you can watch over and over again on Netflix?
Sex and the City. Hands down. I can watch over and over and over again, and I don't need Netflix because I own every episode on dvd AND the first movie (but not the second movie because that was trash).
I can always make a S&TC reference in any real life situation!
I still to this day LOVE Mr. Big.
I rooted from him from the very beginning and I still root for him.
AND my favorite line is "I SEE YOU CARRIE!!!" <--anyone know what episode that's from?!?! 
 Oh! Oh! and "I don't want to be the up the butt girl!"
What's your favorite tv series you can watch over and over again?

30 Things: #14 - Describe 5 strengths you have.

30 Things:
#14 Describe 5 strengths you have.
Once I make up my mind - my decision is solid. I don't waver back and forth and I don't get influenced by other people's opinion (this too can be a weakness, but I choose to look at it in a positive light).
I have always had a strong sense of self and I work really hard at staying true to myself.
My Friendships/Relationships - I'm strength for my friends and they are strength for me through good times and bad.
I'm a mean hooker.
I keep moving forward - no matter how much I want to give up. I'm persistent (maybe that's why I'm in sales)
What's one of your strengths?

Teaser Tuesday ::: What She Left Behind

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

Izzy wondered what horrors the hulking building had witnessed.  What dreadful memories had attached themselves to the bricks and mortar and clouded glass, forever part of the structure, mortared and sealed with blood and tears?
What do you think? Would you keep reading?

Moody Monday

Ugh. Monday already?!
I hope you had a good weekend! I spent a lot of time working on my crochet mood blanket.

Thanks to the feedback I got last week (on this post if I should unravel the 15 blocks I put in the wrong order or leave it) I decided to ... unravel. 

I know-I know it was a lot of work but in the end it'll be worth it. Each block represents a day and to be have a true representation of the year I had to correct my mistake.

I also spent MANY hours weaving in the tails. 199 blocks means a lot if tails. I got about 80% of them done but have more to go. 

I love this project! I have so many ideas for my 2015 blanket!

30 Things: #13 Describe 5 weaknesses you have.

13. Describe 5 weaknesses you have.
#1 - Guilt Trips
I'd hate to tell this secret on myself but I always fall for a guilt trip. I can't stand that feeling eating me up inside and if someone calls me out on that guilt I'm liable to do whatever they ask. I hate that about myself. I always take the guilt trip when someone pulls that card on me.
#2 - Craft Stores/Yarn Sales.
Since I'm driving around all the time for work craft shops always catch my eye - particularly ones that aren't in my normal shopping areas. I could have my last $5 in my pocket and would want to spend it on yarn.
#3 - Speaking Before Thinking
I swear the words fly out of my mouth sometimes before they process through my brain and I end up saying some really off the wall stuff. Especially when I'm mad. I need to calm down, take a deep breath, count to 10 and give the words enough time to process through my head before I say stuff I have to apologize for later. This is an ongoing problem for me (it also works in my favor and makes me seem really witty when I'm in good spirit - guess it works both ways).
#4 - Cupcakes/Cake/Sugar
I was counting calories for a hot minute...then birthday season came around and I couldn't control myself. I actually want a cupcake right now. My favorite as of late has been Chocolate Ganache from Lilly Magilly's and Lemon. I LOVE Lemon cupcakes. Drool.
I do have to be careful though since diabetes runs in my family.
#5 - Drowning in Bad Mood/Bad Feelings
I let my bad moods take over my whole day. If one thing bad goes wrong I have the tendency to want to go hide under the cover in bed and go to sleep (as like a reset). I need to really work on not letting one incident ruin my whole day. I literally have to tell myself to smile when I'm about to fall of the deep edge. Smiling is suppose to help you feel better...I read that somewhere.
What's one of your weakness?

Aaarrggh! Crochet #&$!

So, for the past two days I've been working on my crochet mood blanket. Happily crocheting and joining block after block. Then. Last night as I was folding up my blanket and putting my hook and skeins away I realized I placed about 15 blocks in the wrong order! 

What do I do?! Undo the 15 blocks and put them in the correct order (remember: each block represents a mood for each day of the year)? OR do I just leave them, finish the row and know that nobody will know (or care) they are in the wrong 

What to do? What to do?!

What do you think I should do? What would you do?

WIP WEDNESDAY: Hexagon Blanket

I'm still plugging away at my Crochet Mood Blanket. Yes-I have fallen behind ...again... but the main reason is because my attention has been on my Purples Hexagon Blanket:

Instead of making all the hexagons THEN joining them I've decided to do it in batches. I make 50+ hexies then join them with my silver yarn. 

Probably would've been easier to just to do the join -as-you-go method, but I think I really like the silver pulling them all together. What do you think?

I'm going to hate myself when it's time to take care of all these tails!
