Organizing.... or "stuff i dont do"

Let me start off by making a little admission. Ive never been organized. Never. Ever. I've always had some amount of disorganized clutter just hanging around in the corners of my room and under the bed, hiding in the dark and making little clutter babies... 

Ok, so maybe its not THAT bad, but it's always there, nagging at me in the back of my mind. Like and itch you cant scratch.

Unfortunately for me though, having 2 little guys and a very busy lifestyle makes being unorganized not an option. That leads to leaving the house without the kid essentials (which I've done, numerous times), forgetting important dates and appointments, and running out of clean underwear.


Tutorial: Crochet Baby Blanket

Finally!! i've been working on this blanket literally for months, but i've finally finished it up and delivered it!

Lovely little baby blanket in white and "Her blue jeans" bernat verrigated

This was made for alittle lady named Anna Victoria, so I stitched her initials in the corner. This was my first real time trying to stitch on crochet, and while i think it could look a little better,
I think it turned out pretty well, and her mommy LOVED it!!

It was a really easy pattern that I pretty much just made up lol!

For my crochet ladies who might be interested:

sc 150 chains, chain 3 to turn
hdc 150 back down the row, 3 sc to turn, change colors
dc 150 down the row, 3 sc to turn, change colors

and thats it! just keep changing colors and stitches as you go until its the size you want.



My (Belated) Birthday post: Leu Gardens

With things being as crazy as they've been 'round our lovely little home the past few weeks, I have very severely been neglecting my blogging-ly duties, so first, let me apologize....IM SORRY!!

But Im back now and I plan on being a little better about posting. 

Just a quick little post (but slightly picture heavy) about my birthday :D The day before I had a lovely party with my family, where I got lots of fab things (my mom bought me the entire "twilight" series, and my uncle got me an Alton Brown cookbook :D)

Heres my little guy with my Grandma. She looks pretty good for 80, huh?!

The super fab chocolate chip cheesecake my mom made me in lieu of a cake

I had taken the day of my birthday (monday) off, so I dropped the boys off at daycare, and took myself on a much needed walk through Leu gardens, a lovely little garden hideaway in between Winter Park and Orlando.
