New Toy...

So, I've been working at my current job for a while, long enough that I should have received a few bonuses by now. Well, I finally got 1 big fat bonus today!! I put that check right in the bank, came back to work, and ordered this....

It should be in by tomorrow. It's the Nikon D60 SLR Camera. I have had my eye on the D40 for the past 6 or 8 months, noticing that other people in blog land were using it and seemed to all really love it. I did my research the whole time, checked prices, reviews, etc. Well, I decided to upgrade to the D60. I know that it is a camera I will use for a long time and that I will get a lot of use out of.

So, I will have lots of updated pictures of my WIP's and other finished projects by this weekend! After I figure out all the bells and whistles!

Until then... Happy Knitting!

Summer of Yarn Love Swap Package

I was so excited to open this package! My swap partner nailed this package!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE It! The sock yarn is perfect and I will be casting on after I've finished my mom's socks! The Lip Shine is amazing and I've already bought more of it! And you can never go wrong with Dove chocolate and Lemonheads! Not together of course, but they are my favorites!

Back to work... I will be posting pictures of my mom's socks this weekend! They are awesome :)

Monkeys and a Baby!!

I finally got pictures from my parents of my niece and SIL in their Monkey socks!!!

Those little feet just LOVE the pick socks!!!

This is my favorite shot of the socks! SIL and Ava just sitting on the couch, showing off their socks!!

And finally, one of the best pictures I've seen of my niece to date! She is SOOO CUTE! Smiling with her Daddy, my older brother, and my Moma!

We are all patiently waiting the arrival of baby #2, who needs to stay in her mama's bellyl for as long as possible! Although, we are all really excited that she has outlasted her sister in terms of delivery. My SIL has a condition while pregnant which doesn't allow her to carry the baby full term. She has been on bedrest since week 23 and I think she is now on week 30! So she is doing really well and the baby is still inside :) I can't wait to meet my second niece!!!

Anyways, off to the beach this weekend with my new roommate and great friend, Wendy of Musings of a Knucklehead. We are getting along really great! It's an awesome house and it's nice to feel so at home!

Busy, Sick, Etc..

Yeah, so I packed all my stuff and moved last weekend, I've been the only one at work for 2 weeks now and I'm still getting over some crazy bug that hit me and put me out of work for 2 days. So, I've been a little busy and haven't been knitting much.

I have started a few projects and need to finish a few more projects. They will get done once I get completely organized! I have a feeling there will be some knitting happening this weekend!!

I will get pictures up this weekend of knitting and fun-ness :)
