Oh, How Pinteresting & What I'm Loving Wednesday


Ready to LEAP in and link up?!

I'm LOVING that last weekend I went bowling with my Beau. I'm terrible at it AND my arm still hurts but it was a good time.

I'm LOVING these crochet hooks. I'm going to have to treat myself to a couple soon!
I'm LOVING the previews and pictures of The Hunger Games!! I'm sooooooo excited for it! I recommended the book to my co-worker and at first she wasn't loving it ... until she got further into the story and she LOVES it and her husband starting reading it too and he loves it too. I feel like I've done a good deed in sharing those books! 

I'm LOVING these really cute shoes:



 I'm LOVING Pinterest

Teaser Tuesday ::: Blood Promise

Ready to be teeeeeeaaaaaassssseeeeedddd???

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

My tease today comes from book #4 of Vampire Academy Series:


"I was still looking, still floundering-but determined to find him, even though I dreaded it at the same time. Because if I really did pull this insane plan off, if I actually managed to kill the man I loved, it would mean [he] would truly be gone from the world."

I removed the name so I wouldn't ruin anything for you. If you read this book you know exactly who this tease is talking about -- and BOOOY it's soooo good!

Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read
Hello! Happy Friday! 

Q: Activity!!! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most...

A: Oh, this is easy for me. 
The place I LOVE to read the most is a place that has clear cool blue water/pool and a bright hot sun hanging in the sky. 
Oooh - can't you just taste the summer on your lips?! 


Unfortunately I have NEVER been to any of the 3 places photographed above.
And the reality is most of reading gets done here:

Pales in comparison huh?
{Cue the sad & disappointing music}

Anyhoo - where is YOUR favorite place to read?


Wool-Eater Wednesday...err..Thursday!

My Wool-Eater is coming along really well! 

I've managed to get in 3 rows this week:

I think I'm going to do 2 - 3 bright colors next and then 1-2 dark colors after that. I want to make sure this blanket ends up nice and big (it's already warm and cozy)!

Good Day!

I'm LOVING Pop-up Video <- did you just read that in your head the way it sounds on the show? Because that's how I wrote it. Read it again ... go ahead ... I'll give you a minute...okay let's move on.

I'm LOVING my little "icon" at work is this {created by my boss...I had no part of this}
uncanny resemblance huh?
I'm LOVING that I got REALLY lucky this month and have made goal -- which means I get to leave work early on Friday.

I'm LOVING Modern Family. I'm late to the game -- but I'm now in LOVE. I watched season 1 last weekend and I've started season two. The show cracks me up. I can see why so many people love it.

I'm LOVING Pinterest -- duh!

I love candles and I love crochet - this is both.
I LOVE LOVE this - Gotta make

Motif Monday {2}


I made another little Motif:


I don't think I'm going to make 100 of these motifs -- only because I have so many projects I want to complete this year (including my Wool Eater Blanket and these Hawaiian Flowers) but I think I can try to make one little motif a week.

How are your Motifs coming along?

Q: What would you prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you get sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?

100s of mediocre books. Seriously. How do you know your favorite book is your favorite book unless you read a bunch of other crappy books? You need something to compare it to....right?

Plus I'm not one to re-read books ... even if I LOVED it. I'd rather read a mediocre book and then use my imagination and make the book better in my head and then move on to the next book.

What about you? Would you rather re-read your favorite book or read 100s of mediocre books?

Wool-Eater Wednesday ... Err...Thursday

I've added 3 whole rounds to my wool-eater blanket!

Thanks for all the feedback last week on the Orange Center (because I was questioning it last week -- I really kindasortamaybe don't like it).

I'm going with the suggestion of adding another orange round so that maybe that orange round doesn't look so "funny" aka "ugly".

What do you think?

I'm LOVING the Little Debbie Be My Valentine Cakes. I've literally ate the whole box in like 3 days (that's 10 cakes! I'm a total fatass).

I'm LOVING this blog page called iCrochet. So many beautiful projects on this page!

I'm LOVING that my mom celebrated her 51st birthday with a tattoo (her Christmas/Bday gift from yours truly):

I'm LOVING Pinterest!

I would love this in the kitchen. 

This made me chuckle. Wish I had some wine right now!
This is so pretty!
