I'm still a wee blogger trying to get my blog out into the world so I decided to join a blog party! Actually, my bestie at Mustlovemommyhood told me I had to do this. I wasn't all that hard to convince, its not like she was standing over me with a whip or anything...
Sooooo, what do we do all day around here? I love to knit. Love it. It saved me from post-partum depression. I'm not the best knitter ever and I am pretty sure that I spend more time frogging projects than knitting. Frogging is done when you realize that you have screwed up your pattern so badly that you have to go pour yourself a glass of wine and start ripping out stitches row by row. It doesn't work if you don't drink wine. Or so they told me at the yarn store. They're professionals, who am I to question?
When I'm not knitting, I am surfing Pinterest. Truthfully, I would like to be wealthy enough to pay someone to do all the fancy schmancy pins I find. But as glamorous as being married to a chef sounds, it's pretty much like being married to anyone who is gone from the time the kids get up until the time they go to bed. And they don't get paid crap tons of money like Bobby Flay. So, I kinda hafta do the stuff myself.
I'm learning to live a more natural life these days. I have my girlfriends E and Lishy to thank for that. And the Pinterest addiction. I make all of my own cleaners, use essential oils and herbs for all kinds of fun stuff, and I have just recently learned to bake my own bread! I really am loving living my hippie life! I'm going to be planting some culinary and medicinal herbs soon... Keep your peepers peeled for those posts!
I should probably talk a bit about my roommates too, huh? The huz is, like I mentioned above, a chef. He's awesome. Funny, smart, and totally supportive of all of my hair brained hippie ideas. He told me when we first met he likes his women like he likes his coffee, hot and bitter. Um, SOLD! We have two little
monsters ahem, darlings. Parker is 4. He's sweet and smarter than I'll ever be. And then there's Connor. At 20 months he is making it known that it's his way or no way. He is also fascinated with my knitting needles. A kid after my own heart.
That's me! I hope you hang around for all the fun! Most of my posts are Pinterest finds and will have WIN or FAIL in the title. There will be everything from cleaners to gardening to beauty ideas.
See you soon!
