Cotton Candy Dreams

You totally get this right? I am currently obsessing a little bit over some cotton candy/mint colors! I guess I'm ready for spring! All these pastel colors are really inspiring me! You know that means I have something up my sleeve! ;) 


Flower Bomb Hat

I've been working simultainously on SEVERAL projects lately. Along with playing a lot of Call of Duty tehe.
But my most recent project is a new Flower Bomb Hat!

I used a pattern I found on Ravelry, it was a free PDF download! If you are a crochet person, this pattern was so easy and I can see a couple of uses for the beginning flower part! I just love the way it looks and the way it feels! It's like not wearing a hat at all, PERFECT for spring!

If you're on ravelry  you can get all the cool knitty gritty details on my project page!

So, what has everyone else been up to?
 It feels like I've gotten out of the habit of posting regularly again. It seems I'm busy doing lots of other things around the house. Yesterday we spent all day outside with Autumn and tons of people who just showed up. (It happens alot at this house!) Last night we grilled steaks and had baked potatoes and salads. Oh, man. It was so good. Then afterwards we all just sat around and talked. I've really missed those types of nights. I am loving the weather right now too! There are daffodils popping up around our pecan tree! They are so pretty!
What newness are you noticing in your neighborhoods?


Happy Valentines Day!

It has been wayy too long since my last post! Sorry about that! My sister in law had her baby and we've been over at her house loving and getting to know our new Nephew! He's so chubby and cute he was 9 lbs. 12 oz!! He was such a little chunk!!

I finished my Strumpet's Valentine Craft Swap sometime ago! Aren't these little love bots ADORABLE! They're also magnets! Too cute!

Valentines Day was super sweet and memorable for me and Robin... If you can stand all the mushy details, I'm going to gush a little bit! I spent the better part of last week looking around for a cute outfit to wear.. I haven't went shopping in AGES! It was so NICE! Lol. I ended up finding the perfect dress and cardi at TJMaxx. I got all my jewlery at Rue 21. And I had the shoes. I knew I wanted to experiment with my make up a little too. So, I got all dolled up and when my mom (aka babysitter) got home Robin and I headed to town. We went to shop for some better shoes for my  outfit, but didn't find any. We went to Olive Garden and waiting for 1 hour and 20 minutes. While we sat out our wait in the car we gave each other presents. ;) Robin is so sweet, I am so surprised at the the things he did! He made me a card! MADE IT! Then wrote me a letter that made me cry. The words were the sweetest, lovliest words I've read in a long time. He also bought me a dvd I've been wanting and 2 c.d.s I've been wanting too. :)
 Here we are! I love that man. He knows me too good!
So, here's my fancy makeup! Believe it or not all the stuff I used was under $5 each!

So, how was your Valentine's Day?


Getting to Know Me

The Push For Pita Journal

Random facts about me:

-I live in New Orleans, LA for 8 years of my childhood life. I went to elementary and middle school there. So, it's a big part of who I am. I'm sad to say that I haven't been back to New Orleans since we moved to Georgia. I miss it alot, but I love living in Georgia!

-Growing up I LOVED the name Zoe. I'm not ever sure where I heard the name from, because when I was a kid I know that name wasn't popular.. it is now though. Another name I loved was Catalina! Lol.

-I am over emotional. I can see the sun set in pretty colors and it will make me tear up. When I think about how much God loves me, I tear up. When I read something pretty I tear up. I guess I'm just sensitive. Who knows.. but I don't cry at the drop of a hat, just when I'm "moved"

-When I was in highschool I was never interested in the same guys for long. In my senior year I just decided not to date anyone. For almost a year I didn't have a boyfriend.. which was a really good thing. I needed to fall in love with who I was as a person before I could fall in love with someone else. So, I was pretty much resolved to be a cat lady, which is totally okay with me! But then I met Robin and the rest is history!

-I love to have a clean house, but I absolutely HATE cleaning up. It stresses me out. I don't know why but cleaning is a huge deal to me. Lately, Robin has been keeping everything clean. He is so amazing for that. So, now all I have to do is just keep little messes picked up!

The Push For Pita Journal

This is my journal page for The Push for Pita... I am ABSOLUTELY in love with it. :)
I sersiously want to have a music career. I have since I was 10. And the truth is I think I still could. It is one of my deepest dreams to create and record and album... I've been working on some songs and I've been jotting down ideas that come to mind. But to record an album would be a life accomplishment for me. :) Is that crazy?
I want to travel. I am so interested in other cultures and ways of life! I want to see them all and learn about people from all over! Not to mention see all the beautiful places there are!
I can't WAIT for Robin and I to own our first Home. I look forward to that day so much. Robin and I talk and day dream about it all the time!
My biggest dream is to follow God's will for my life. I want to be pleasing in His sight and I know obedience is something He loves. I hope when I die, my life would have been lived fully for him!
Well, there you have it... a little insight to me! ;)
I hope you like me ;) Lol!


The Push For Pita!!!

Just in case you don't know, I love Janel at Run With Scissors! She's the one who got me started journaling with her FREE 30-Day Journal Challenge on her blog last Spring. I've been apart of her online journaling classes ever since. Needless to say, I am UBER inspired by her & recently she has blessed my life so much!!

With all that being said, she's down to the wire to raise money for her adoption process. From what I understand, it is an extensive process to adopt and Janel and her husband, Adam, are gearing up! Janel is doing The Push for Pita Journal Class and there are a few spots left for the class! If you've never taken one of her classes, YOU NEED TO! They are so much fun & you will get to know yourself and your style alot better!

Janel's New Year... New You Journal Class is completed and here are a few of the prompts that I haven't shared with you yet! I still have a few more pages to finish and some to take pictures of! All in due time! I always crap out on the last few prompts... I get behind during the day and don't find time to journal. These things happen.

I'm still working on Robin's crochet socks!
Robin's Crochet socks

I am almost finished with the first cuff! I am having such a hard time keeping my edges straight! One side is straight, but the other is a bit wonky... I keep having to frog rows and start over cause I won't have the right # of stitches, which is frustrating! I'm determined to finish these though! I'm using this pattern from Crochet Today! Magazine. (My favortie crochet magazine, most of the time)

Hopefully the socks will turn out right and look like this:

Handsome socks, right? I can't stand working with a size D hook and sock yarn though. Everything feels so small to me! I bought myself some sock yarn this weekend though..

Oh so pretty! I can't wait to see how it stripes up.. that is IF I ever get finished with Robin's socks!

What are you working on?! I've been hearing about the Snowpocolypse going on in Mid-USA.. how is everyone!?
